Excerpt from The Land and the Book, or Biblical Illustrations Drawn From the Manners and Customs, the Scenes and Scenery, of the Holy Land: Central Palestine and Phœnicia
The Kingdom of Judah, including within its territorial limits the whole of Southern Palestine and Jerusal... em, has been traversed and described in a previous work.
Central Palestine, comprising Samaria and Lower and Upper Galilee, was not only the largest, but also the most beautiful and fertile, portion of the land of Israel, and is now pre-eminently distinguished for the number, variety, and importance of its historic sites and sacred scenes. There lived and labored most of the great prophets men tioned in the Old Testament, and there also dwelt the Saviour of men during nearly the entire period of his life on earth. Though he was born in Bethlehem, Nazareth was his home, and in Capernaum, his own city, on the shore of the Sea of Gennesaret, many of his mighty works were accomplished. He may not have entered th'ose ah cient Phoenician towns, still he visited the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, and there performed one of his acts of tender compassion and healing mercy.
