The Visitation - Mary Departs from Elizabeth's Home
"And Mary abode with her [Elizabeth] about three months, and returned unto her house." Luke 1:56 ASV
Illustration of Mary and Elizabeth in the doorway of Elizabeth's dwelling. From its placement in the text, the illustration probably was intended to depict the departure of Mary from Elizabeth, rather than the more frequent scene of their initial greeting.
