Jaffa (Joppa)

Simon the Tanner, Old Jaffa, Israel“He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, saying unto him, “Cornelius”. And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, “What is it, Lord”? And he said unto him, “Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God. And now send men to Joppa (Jaffa), and for one Simon, whose surname is Peter.” Acts 10:3-5.
