DAY 9
Tuesday 31st March
Day 9
This is the hardest day of the tour – time to go home.

Before you board the plane, take a moment to reflect on all you’ve experienced, the new friends you have made and the everlasting memories that you will be taking home with you.

In Israel we never say good bye. We say L’hitraot, pronounced “L’heet-rah-ote” which means, “Until we meet again.” Israel will be waiting for you!

Tel Aviv-Yafo / Jaffa

Picturesque Jaffa, on the Mediterranean Sea just south of Tel Aviv, is where the apostle Peter received a crucial vision that changed his mind about accepting gentiles into the early Christian Church.

Peter was staying in the seaside house of a tanner called Simon and went up on the roof to pray.

He fell into a trance and saw heaven opened and a sheet lowered, filled with all sorts of animals, which he was told to eat. When he protested that some of the animals were unclean, a voice told him, “What God has made clean, you must not call profane”.

Realising that “I should not call anyone profane or unclean”, Peter accepted an invitation to visit a centurion called Cornelius at Caesarea, about 48 kilometres up the coast, and accepted Cornelius as the first gentile to convert to Christianity (Acts 10).

Called Joppa in biblical times, Jaffa is one of the oldest port cities on earth. It was here that the prophet Jonah embarked for his fateful encounter with a whale (Jonah 1:3), and for centuries it was the arrival port for pilgrims visiting the Holy Land.

In Scripture:

Timber from Lebanon to be sent to Joppa: 2 Chronicles 2:16; Ezra 3:7

Jonah sails from Joppa: Jonah 1:3

Peter raises Tabitha from the dead: Acts 9:36-43

Peter’s vision in Joppa: Acts 10:5-16
