Lydda

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
A town in the tribe of Ephraim, mentioned only in the New Testament (Acts 9:32,35,38 ) as the scene of Peter's miracle in healing the paralytic AEneas. It lay about 9 miles east of Joppa, on the road from the sea-port to Jerusalem. In the Old Testament (1 Chronicles 8:12 ) it is called Lod. It was burned by the Romans, but was afterwards rebuilt, and was known by the name of Diospolis. Its modern name is Ludd. The so-called patron saint of England, St. George, is said to have been born here.
