What a wonderful opportunity to visit Israel again with friends who want to be better Bible students. My group is presently waiting at Newark, with a slightly delayed departure time.
The Ben Gurion airport is located on the site of OT Lod, NT Lydda. Peter was a Lydda when brethren came from Joppa with the news that Dorcas had died, asking him to hurry there. Upon arriving, he raised her from the dead (Acts 9:32-41).
Check our blog to follow our travels; we will post as time permits. For now here is an aerial of Joppa, taken Dec. ’09.
Joppa is immediately south of Tel Aviv.
