Earthquake Date: 742 A.D.

Awful earthquake in Syria, Palestine, and Asia; more than 500 towns were destroyed, and the loss of life surpassed all calculations.

“Christ's ... yoke is an easy yoke; his burden like the burden of wings to a bird, that makes her fly the higher.”
–Richard Sibbes, The Bruised Reed and Smoking Flax
