They turned to the Lord (Acts 9:35)

“All the residents

Of Lydda

And Sharon

Saw him.

They turned

To the Lord.”

καὶ εἶδαν αὐτὸν πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες Λύδδα καὶ τὸν Σαρῶνα, οἵτινες ἐπέστρεψαν ἐπὶ τὸν Κύριον.

The author of Acts indicated that all the residents (πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες) of Lydda (Λύδδα) and Sharon (καὶ τὸν Σαρῶνα) saw him (καὶ εἶδαν αὐτὸν).  Then they turned (οἵτινες ἐπέστρεψαν) to the Lord (ἐπὶ τὸν Κύριον).  The other people watching what was going on in this healing of the paralyzed man turned to Jesus Christ, the Lord.  Sharon was a plains area along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea between Joppa and Mount Carmel.  Basically, it was flat plain area along the coast, the people not in a town.  Do you know of an area that turned to Jesus Christ, the Lord?
