Joppa, or Jaffa, is now Tel Aviv Yafo, a leading city of modern Israel.

Antoine Augustine Calmet (1672-1757) was a French Benedictine monk and theologian, who published several volumes of pioneering studies which utilized historical and factual information in order to interpret and understand Bible stories. His major work was a multi-volume work known in English as Calmet's Dictionary of the Bible. That work and his later reworkings and additions to that text were widely admired and translated into many languages in the 1720s and 30s, including Dutch.
