From Jaffa to Jerusalem (virtual walk) // 40 Miles in 40 Days // DAY ONE

 

DAY ONE // Jaffa to Jerusalem - Virtually // We begin our walk up to Jerusalem at the ancient port of Joppa (modern-day Jaffa). Look out over the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, take in the smells of the fishing boats, listen to the chatter of gathered crowds, imagine the many boats that have entered this port from ancient times until today. This is where Jonah hopped on a boat to hide from God https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jonah%201&version=NIV and where rafts of cedars logs from Lebanon arrived to build the Temple in Jerusalem https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...

Tomorrow, we will explore the old city of Jaffa.
