Roberts was clearly impressed by arriving at Cana - the site of the miracle performed by Jesus of turning water into wine (John II:1-11). He wrote that "on entering the village we were shown the fountain from whence the water was taken! It was limpid and pure as crystal"

CHRISTIAN & MAHOMEDAN CHAPLES ON THE SUMMIT OF SINAI
CHRISTIAN & MAHOMEDAN CHAPLES ON THE SUMMIT OF SINAI
The top of Mount Sinai is reached after a two- hour climb up 3,750 steps from St. Catherine's Monastery. Today the site where Moses received the Tablets of the Law with the Ten Commandments (Exodus 34, 1-28) is marked by a chapel built in 1934 from the material salvaged from Justinian's earlier church erected in 532 and repeatedly destroyed.

CONVENT OF THE TERRA-SANTA, NAZARETH APRIL 21ST 1839
CONVENT OF THE TERRA-SANTA, NAZARETH APRIL 21ST 1839
Built in 1620 on the site of an earlier church, the Convent in the foreground takes the well fortified square shape familiar from numerous other religious foundations throughout the Middle East. Joseph's workshop is said to have been located to the north-east of the Convent beneath a small church and, to the west of that, the synagogue beneath a small arched building; but the location of both sites is unknown today.

GEBIL HOR. MARCH 5TH 1839
GEBIL HOR. MARCH 5TH 1839
The evening before he entered Petra Roberts climbed one of the high hills in order to get a distant view of the city. In this he was disappointed since he found himself surrounded by hills with only the view of Aaron's tomb on Mount Hor set between the wadis Ghor and Arabah. However, he considered that the climb was well worth the view that he did get.

JERUSALEM FROM THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
JERUSALEM FROM THE MOUNT OF OLIVES
The Mount of Olives is a mountain ridge east of and adjacent to the Jerusalems Old City. It is named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. Several key events in the life of Jesus as related in the Gospels took place on the Mount of Olives, and in the Book of Acts it is described as the place from which Jesus ascended to heaven.
