STORIES FROM THE GOSPELS

[merged small][ocr errors]

BIRTH OF JOHN THE BAPTIST.

LET us sit down on this green hill-side under the olive trees. They are friendly looking trees, with their gnarled, twisted trunks and willow-like leaves, silvery as the wind turns them up and shows the under side. In the old time there were large orchards of olives on this hill-side, and from them the hill was called the Mount of Olives. We look down the slope into the deep Kidron valley, and across the valley are the hills on which Jerusalem stands. Imagine the city as it was in Gospel days. Beyond these nearer buildings rose the highest hill of the city, with steep rough sides, called Mount Zion. King Herod's palace stood on Mount Zion, and from the high windows he could overlook the city and the country all about. He looked down the Kidron valley into the wilderness, and over the slope of the Mount of Olives he caught a glimpse of the blue water of the Dead Sea. Under the hill were the shops and busy streets of the city, and towards the north there were nice houses with trees and gardens about them.

One part of the city we have not mentioned, which we should have noticed first of all. In the corner of the city nearest to us stood the temple, on a hill somewhat lower than Mount Zion, which rose directly from the Kidron valley. The top of this hill was naturally small but had been enlarged to give room for the temple and its open courts. Along the steep sides of the hill, a great wall of white stone had been built, and the space within the wall had been filled partly with earth and partly with arches of masonry, supporting the marble pavement of the temple courts. Along the top of the wall ran a beautiful porch or colonnade where one could walk and look out over the gardens of the Kidron. From this level, steps led under an arched gate-way to a
