Pinsteps. The House of Simon Tanner, Jaffa
Places to visit in Tel Aviv-Yafo. Languages: ru, en, he

Here at the foot of the lighthouse stands an ancient house in which, according to legend, Simon the tanner lived. It was in his house that the apostle Peter spent the night before setting off from the Holy Land to the city of Rome, converting the Roman Cornelius and his household to Christianity on the way to Caesarea. Prior to these events, Peter resurrected Tabitha on the eve of Jaffa, the path to which he kept from the east from Jerusalem. And Peter saw a vision on the roof of the tanner's house, according to which a savannah descended from heaven in which there were different bastards and Peter cried out: Lord, is that really what you want to feed me ?! And he heard the answer: "What God has cleansed, you do not consider it unclean. It was thrice; and the vessel rose again to heaven." Vision ap. Peter, (Acts 10.15). All these events and their sequence matter. Peter is the heir to Jesus, and just as a teacher comes to Jerusalem from the east, resurrecting Lazarus - so Peter comes to Jaffa to resurrect Tabitha. Just as Jesus comes to the Jews in Jerusalem, so does the Peter through the Jaffa and Caesarea to the Romans. And in Rome, Peter was crucified, like Jesus in Jerusalem. And if Jesus goes to the Jews, then his disciples go to the Romans - creating the Christian faith. And this very vision of various bastards is of particular importance. Jesus comes to the Jews, the people of God. And Peter goes to the Gentiles. But, the words that God has cleansed, you do not consider unclean - just liberate Peter. From now on, the Christian faith goes to the Gentiles. Translated with Google Translate

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Jaffa - from the promenade to the promenade

This unhurried walk from the embankment through the old city to another part of the embankment will allow you to fully understand and feel the old part of the city of Jaffa. Walking along the promenade from the famous ledge resembling the bow of a ship to the customs building, we learn the history of an important port city, and, having understood from the port along the stairs to its narrow streets, we plunge into the kingdom of the east. But not for long will we be accompanied by a sense of fairy tales of a thousand and one nights. The modern history of Jaffa will slightly open the veil on his creative and pictorial side. These are galleries, monuments, sculptures, a constant floating orange and zodiac signs with a wish bridge. We conclude our walk by going down along the house of Simon Tanner to the English part of the port to its restaurants, shops and the famous scales, which served the English customs faithfully in a difficult fight against smugglers. By the way, from the roof of the house of the tanner Simon almost two thousand years ago, Christianity began its journey to Rome. Translated with Google Translate
