Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Daniel, ix:24.)--' Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people, and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy.' The prophecy contained in the 24th, 25th, 26th, and 27th verses of the ninth chapter of Daniel is one of the most remarkable found in the Scriptures. There isn't space enough here to explain this prophecy, but it is generally conceded to refer to Christ, and many authorities claim that the exact time of his coming was foreseen and calculated by Daniel. This furnishes an interesting study. We give here as an illustration a picture of ancient stone doors found in Tiberias, a city upon Lake Galilee, around which our Savior performed so many of His miracles and uttered so many of His remarkable discourses. The women we see in the door belong to the Jewish race." See 5257BAI/LVi175CAJS (Voyager # 360102)
