1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 18 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matt., xxvi: 1, 4.)--The Mount of Offense is south of the Mount of Olives, and east of the Hill of Evil Counsel. It bears witness of the perfidy of Judas Iscariot. It is wonderful how every event connected with the trial and death and resurrection of our Lord has found in the neighborhood of Jerusalem some spot, or hill, or monument to commemorate it. The chief interest about Jerusalem to-day is the fact that it forms a kind of monument or concrete expression of the awful tragedy which ended in the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. When one goes to Paris now, it is of Napoleon he is reminded; when he goes to Edinburg it is Sir Walter Scott; but in Jerusalem everything speaks of Christ. Every valley, every mountain reminds us of Him."
Hillside with caves, houses and buildings carved from or made from stone
