"And Jesus departed from thence, and came nigh unto the Sea of Galilee..." Matthew 15:20
This bookmark is beautifully illustrated with David Roberts' painting titled 'Town of Tiberias, looking towards Lebanon'. Tiberias is located on the western shore of teh Sea of Galilee and was an important central city during the ministry of Jesus Christ. As the new faith began to take hold and spread, many of the first churches were built in Tiberias and its surroundings, both inside and outside the Old City's ancient walls.
David Roberts traveled from Egypt across the Suez to Mount Sinai, Petra, Jerusalem, and the Galilee producing a large collection of drawings and watercolors of all the major holy sites. These works formed the basis of the tinted lithographs published soon after his return to England, a collection which enjoyed immense popularity in England and the United States. It provided the public the first glimpse of the biblical landscape and monuments known only by name. Today Roberts' works are still enjoyed by those who appreciate the beauty of the Holy Land.
