Not illustrated. 1874 edition. Excerpt: ...him with respect, and seems to have been really anxious to learn the truth. What does he say? "Eabbi (which means master or a teacher), we know that thou art a teacher come from God, for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him." This shows that he had been talking with others over the wonderful works of Christ Jesus.
