Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Numbers, xxvii:12-23.)--'And the Lord said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel,' etc. Mejdel esh-Shems is on the road from Banias to Damascus. It is a Druse village, and is at the foot of Mount Hermon, near the place where, according to tradition, Christ was transfigured when Moses and Elias appeared with Him. It is true that Moses was not permitted to cross the Jordan, but it is a striking evidence of the truth that our career does not end with death that Moses, though buried on the other side of Jordan, appears upon this side during this crisis in our Lord's life, when before His disciples He seemed to hold back the veil that separates time from eternity, and disclosed the glories of the spiritual world."
