“And it came to passe, that he taried many dayes in Ioppa, with one Simon a Tanner.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
Ac 9:43 Tarried many days. Perhaps a year. In Joppa with one Simon the tanner. Joppa was a large city and a favorable field of work. Here Peter was found, at "the house of Simon the tanner" (Ac 10:6) when called to Caesarea by the messengers of Cornelius. It was by the seaside (Ac 10:32) and a house is still pointed out, close to the seashore, as that of Simon, which Dean Stanley believes to be on the original site.
