Jaffa (Joppa)

Jaffa itself is very small, and not very interesting. In the KJV it is known as Joppa. The haven Jonah went to flee as far as possible from Nineveh.

In the New Testament we read about it as the location of the house of Simon, a tanner, where the servants of Cornelius found Peter.

And this is the roof of the house. We couldn't get any closer, as it appears to be a private home.

The modern harbour of Jaffa.

And then something that's not in the book, the school where Rev. Golby's daughter went. For those reading this who do not know Mr. Golby, he is a minister from the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, ministering in Israel. I will do a separate post on his work here in Israel.
