Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.3 x 18.2 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke, ix: 51.)--While we have no knowledge that our Savior was in Tiberias, we know that he often passed in sight of it, because He could not go from Nazareth to Capernaum, or from Jerusalem to Capernaum, without going by it. While there is no record of his entering it, we must think there are many things which He did of which we have no record, because St. John said if all the things He did were recorded the world itself would not contain the books, so that we have but little doubt but what our Savior was often in the city of Tiberias. He loved the haunts of men, and wherever men assembled He was in the midst of them. This was the greatest city of the time on the Sea of Galilee, the home of the Roman governor, and the center of interest about the lake. The people here now are very poor." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
