Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Judges, v:14.)--'Out of Ephraim was there a root of them against Amalek; after thee, Benjamin, among thy people, out of Machir came down governors, and out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the writer.' Tiberias was in the territory of Zebulun, and this part of Palestine seems to have always been noted above the rest of the Holy Land for its secular learning and for its trade. The people of Galilee were never held in high esteem by the strict orthodox party at Jerusalem. They were related more to the great outside world. In the above view we have a characteristic scene in Tiberias; a man making nets as they have always been made in this city of fishermen; and it is true to-day as it was true in the days of our Savior, that the fishermen of Tiberias make up the best class of her citizens. They have the faces to-day of earnest, honest faithful men." See 5256BAI/LVi174CAJS (Voyager # 360096)
