Please click on the following for a historic video of the Old City of Akko, Israel.

 

Akko, is located on the beautiful coast of the Mediterranean, with a history that dates back over four thousand five hundred years. It is one of the oldest cities in the world. Akko’s harbor was conquered by Egyptians, Phoenicians, Persians, Greeks, Muslims, and the Crusaders.

Archeologists have unearthed much here: mosques, synagogues, gothic churches, buildings during the time of the Crusaders, tunnels, baths, walls, dungeons, halls, and a hospital.

Dear Lord, I can’t imagine actually viewing these sites that date back to the Crusaders. My knowledge of history is limited; all that is known to have occurred in this old port city is mind-boggling. As I travel through Israel and Jordan, I ask You to help me see with my eyes, heart, mind, and soul. Transform my life as I immerse myself in the times long past. Help me to discern where my ancestors lives impacted history, and where my life can best impact the world in which I live daily. Amen
