Pictures from Nazareth over 100 Years Ago (see the Virgin Mary :-)

by Steve Ray on March 25, 2014

Today we are celebrating the Feast of the Annunciation.

These pictures are over a hundred years old from Nazareth. Not much changed between then and the first century.

When you look at these old pictures and hundreds more I have in a book I purchased in Nazareth (written in Arabic), you can imagine Mary as she walked the dusty streets of Nazareth.

Who is this father, mother and child? Can you “see” Mary at the well of Nazareth where all the women came to collect water? I’ve included modern pictures of the Church of Annunciation built over the cave-house where Gabriel made the announcement to Mary and the altar inside the cave which reads, “The Word Became Flesh HERE!”.

Beautiful Tissott painting of Mary of Nazareth

Words on the altar: "The Word Became Flesh HERE"

Dear Steve:
What a beautiful collection of pictures. Can you give us any further details about these pictures. I’m just in awe seeing them.
Thank you.
