St Michael slaying the dragon

A beautiful and striking window in memory of J.B. Rayson who was Master of Skipton School. The window is in the parish church.

 

The Greek verse is from Revelation 22:2 and reads: "the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month", perhaps a reference to education...

 

As for the Hebrew verse on the left, I don't know any Biblical Hebrew yet - I won't start learning that until next year at least!
