Jaffa: Tabitha’s (Dorcas) resurrection thru Peter

 

Jaffa-Joppa-Yafo-St-Peters-Church-tower

Posting continues here of one photo per day from my recent trip to Israel. My intent is to do so (with rare, brief intermissions) for the next several months. Read the text along with each day’s pic and by the end of this posting series you’ll have taken a bit of a trip to Israel yourself! The postings will generally follow the order of the trip’s actual itinerary.

If you’re familiar with the Bible, you likely recall the account of Peter raising Tabitha [aka: Dorcas] from the dead (Acts 9.36-42). What you might not recall is that this happened in Joffa (Joppa; Yofa) and what you might not know is that the traditional location of this happening is where St. Peter’s Church now stands in Jaffa.
