LOOK TO THE NORTH
THE SOUTH
THE EAST
THE WEST
ALL THE LAND WHICH THOU SEEST
TO THEE WILL I GIVE IT
AND TO THY SEED FOREVER.
INDEED... HE WHO WATCHES OVER ISRAEL
WILL NEITHER SLUMBER NOR SLEEP.
HEARTY SHALOM TO ALL OF YOU.
JEFFREY SEIF HERE
PLEASED TO WELCOME YOU AGAIN
TO ZOLA LEVITT PRESENTS.
I SAY "AGAIN" BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN GOING FOR 35 YEARS
AND WE'RE GOING TO KEEP ON GOING.
THIS TIME GOING TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL
IN A SERIES CALLED "ERETZ ISRAEL"
MEANING "THE LAND OF ISRAEL".
WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
WHY TAKE YOU THERE?
DID YOU EVER GET THE FEELING PEOPLE DIDN'T LIKE YOU...
PEOPLE ARE CRITICIZING YOU?
WELL IF YOU DO, YOU KNOW WHAT ITS LIKE TO BE A JEW
BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN AT US SINCE THE BEGINNING.
FROM THE DAWN OF BIBLICAL REVELATION WE SEE GOD LEADING PEOPLE TO REAL ESTATE
AND THE DEVIL TRYING TO OFF END THEM OR US.
IN A WORLD TODAY WHERE ISRAEL IS SO DEBATABLE
WE WANT TO TAKE YOU TO THE REAL ESTATE.
WE WANT TO TAKE YOU THERE OFF THE BEATEN PATH, BY THE WAY.
MY GPS WILL GET YOU PLACES YOU NORMALLY DON'T SEE.
WE WANT TO TAKE YOU TO THE PAGES OF BIBLICAL LITERATURE
AND SEE WHAT SCRIPTURE SAYS ABOUT THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
MY GOOD FRIEND DAVID DOLAN, A FORMER CBS CORRESPONDENT
WILL GIVE US A MODERN VIEW
BUT I WANT TO TAKE YOU TO A BIBLICAL VIEW AT THE FIRST
AND SO OFF WE GO NOW TO FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF OUR FATHER ABRAHAM
AND JOURNEY TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
NOW THE LORD SAID UNTO ABRAM,
"GET THEE OUT OF THY COUNTRY"
"AND FROM THY KINDRED"
"AND FROM THY FATHER'S HOUSE"
"UNTO A LAND THAT I WILL SHOW THEE."
"AND I WILL MAKE OF THEE A GREAT NATION"
"AND I WILL BLESS THEE AND MAKE THY NAME GREAT"
"AND THOU SHALL BE A BLESSING."
"AND I WILL BLESS THEM THAT BLESS THEE"
"AND CURSE HIM THAT CURSETH THEE."
"AND IN THEE SHALL ALL FAMILIES OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED."
AND ABRAM TOOK SARAI HIS WIFE,
HIS NEPHEW LOT,
ALL THE SUBSTANCE AND PERSONS THEY HAD ACQUIRED IN HARAN
AND JOURNEYED TO CANAAN.
IT HAS BEEN SAID
THAT A JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME
BEGINS WITH THE VERY FIRST STEPS
WELL COME WITH ME NOW AND JOURNEY WITH ME
AS WE WALK IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF OUR FATHER ABRAHAM.
EVER HEARD THE EXPRESSION
"THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED"?
FOR MANY OF US THE ROAD OF FAITH IS JUST THAT.
WE WANT TO CONSIDER THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE FATHER OF FAITH
AND TO HELP US I WANT TO SHOW YOU A MAP SO YOU CAN SOME VISION
FOR THE ROAD THAT HE TRAVELED.
IT'S A BIG MAP BUT HE TOOK SOME BIG STEPS.
ABRAHAM LEFT UR OF CHALDEA,
HE MADE HIS WAY THROUGH MESOPOTAMIA,
A GREEK WORD MEANING "BETWEEN THE RIVERS",
THE EUPHRATES AND THE TIGRIS.
HE GOES TO HARAN FOR A SEASON
UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE LORD BECKONS HIM TO FINISH THE FINAL LEG OF THE JOURNEY
MAKING HIS WAY TO "ERETZ CANAAN" IN THE "LAND OF CANAAN".
AND IT'S GOING TO LEAD HIM TO THIS PLACE HERE "BETHEL"
AND IT'S NOT ONLY THIS PLACE HERE
BUT IT'S THIS PLACE HERE.
COME WITH ME NOW...
LET ME GIVE YOU A WINDOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.
THE PROMISE GIVEN OF A GREAT NATION, ABRAHAM THEN DEPARTS
AND HE MAKES HIS WAY TO THE LAND OF CANAAN,
THE LAND THEN CALLED "CANAAN".
OPEN YOUR BIBLES PLEASE TO GENESIS CHAPTER 12
AND LET'S FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF OUR FATHER ABRAHAM.
WE'RE TOLD IN VERSE 5
ABRAHAM IS NOTED AS PASSING THROUGH VARIOUS PLACES.
AND ISN'T IT LIKE A JOURNEY AS WE'RE GOING TO OUR INHERITANCE IN THE LORD?
THERE'S VARIOUS STOPS ALONG THE WAY.
WE'RE TOLD IN VERSE 6
IT'S INTERESTING...
THE LORD SAYS "I'LL GIVE YOU THE LAND OF CANAAN".
THERE STILL WERE PEOPLE USING THE TERM "CANAANITES"
BROADLY CONSTRUED, THAT WE'RE HERE.
THAT ASIDE
EVEN WITH SOME SCATTERED PEOPLE MOVING ABOUT HERE
THE LORD IS EXPLICIT.
AND I WANT YOU TO HEAR ME PLEASE
IN VERSE 7 IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS THE LORD SAYS...
FIRST THE LORD APPEARED TO HIM IN SOMETHING OF A VISION
AND SAID, "TO YOUR DESCENDANTS I WILL GIVE THIS LAND"...
THE LAND OF CANAAN.
THERE'S REAL ESTATE...
THERE'S TRIBAL SORTS,
LOOSE CONFEDERACIES MOVING AROUND IN DIFFERENT PLACES HERE.
AND SOME HAVE TAKEN RESIDENCY IN THE CITIES,
SMALL FLEDGLING CITIES IF YOU WILL,
BUT AS PEOPLE ARE MIGRATING ALONG THE FERTILE CRESCENT AND SETTLING DOWN HERE...
BUT THE LORD BRINGS ABRAHAM HERE
AND HE SAYS, "LISTEN I HAVE GIVEN THIS LAND TO YOU"
IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS OF PROMISE
"TO YOUR DESCENDANTS I WILL GIVE IT".
AND WHAT DOES HE DO IN RESPONSE TO HEARING THAT?
WE'RE TOLD SOMETHING THAT ABRAHAM HAS DONE MORE THAN ONCE.
WHAT DOES HE DO?
HE BUILDS AN ALTAR,
A "MITZBE'ACH",
A PLACE OF SACRIFICE.
AS WE MAKE OUR JOURNEY FROM THE WOMB TO THE TOMB
SOME OF US HAVE MOMENTS
WHERE WE HAVE SOMETHING OF AN EXISTENTIAL ENCOUNTER WITH THE LORD
WHERE WE HEAR HIM SPEAK TO US.
HE STIRS US UP IN OUR HEARTS.
IT'S NOT ALL INTELLECT.
BUT THERE'S A SENSE IF WE HAVE A LITTLE "RUACH HAKODESH" DWELLING IN US, A LITTLE "HOLY SPIRIT"
THAT WE'RE BEING DRIVEN ALONG BY A FORCE THAT'S NOT OUR OWN.
WE HEAR GOD'S VOICE,
WE MOVE BY HIS SPIRIT
AND INDIVIDUALS THUS INCLINED WITHIN THAT CONTEXT
ARE MINDED ALONG THE WAY TO BUILD SOME ALTARS,
TO TAKE SOME TIME OUT TO WORSHIP THE LORD.
ABRAHAM UPON HEARING AT THIS PLACE IS MINDED TO DO MUCH THAT.
I WANT YOU TO SEE...
WE'RE TOLD, HAVING HEARD THE PROMISE,
AND BY THE WAY I'M COMING TO YOU FROM THAT PLACE RIGHT NOW.
TOURISTS DON'T FREQUENT THIS
BECAUSE THERE'S NOT MUCH AT ONE LEVEL
BUT ONE PILGRIM DID MANY YEARS AGO
AND WE'RE ALL ABOUT FOLLOWING THE OFF ROAD STORY OF THE BIBLE
WHERE THE TOURISTS BUSES DON'T COME.
IT'S EASY TO GET A CAMERA CREW,
OR EASIER I SHOULD SAY TO GET A CREW IN
TO TAKE YOU TO SEE SOME THINGS THAT THEY HAVEN'T BUILT HIGHWAYS FOR OTHERS TO GET TO.
IN ANY CASE WE'RE IN PROXIMITY TO THAT PLACE
HERE BETWEEN THOSE TWO CITIES NOTED WHERE ABRAHAM IS MINDED TO WORSHIP THE LORD.
WE'RE TOLD, "AND THERE"...
AS I NOTED EARLIER...
HE BUILDS AN ALTAR TO THE LORD
AND HE CALLS ON THE NAME OF THE LORD.
NOW I CALL UPON GOOD PEOPLE WHO CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD TO READ THE BIBLE.
I'M SURPRISED BY THE WAY
HOW INDIVIDUALS THAT LAY SIEGE TO THE CLAIM OF BEING BIBLE BELIEVERS
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT BIBLE THEY'RE READING
BECAUSE I'M CLUELESS HOW SOMEONE CAN BE A BIBLE BELIEVER ON THE ONE HAND
AND A NON-SUPPORTER OF JEWISH PEOPLE IN THIS LAND ON THE OTHER.
IT MAKES NO SENSE TO ME WHATSOEVER.
THEY CAN CALL THEMSELVES BISHOP, PROFESSOR, DOCTOR, REVEREND... WHATEVER...
BUT I'M CLUELESS HOW SOMEONE CAN READ THE BIBLE AND NOT JUST HOLD ON TO WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
WELL, I WANT TO DO THAT
AND SO I WANT TO COMMEND TO YOU,
NOT JUST AS I LEAVE THIS ONE TEACHING SEGMENT,
BUT AS I INTRODUCE A SERIES TO REMIND YOU,
GOD GAVE LAND TO PEOPLE.
AND IN THIS SERIES, "ERETZ ISRAEL",
WE'RE GONNA NOT ONLY FOLLOW ABRAHAM
BUT WE'RE GOING TO FOLLOW HIS PROGENY.
YITZHAK AND YAKOV...
WE'LL FOLLOW THEM AROUND THE LAND....
THE LAND CALLED "THE PROMISED LAND"...
THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

(Jeff speaking)
AND NOW FROM THE OLD CITY IN JERUSALEM
DAVID DOLAN BEGINS HIS STORY
OF THE BEGINNING OF THE MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL.
I'M STANDING IN FRONT OF ONE OF THE OLDEST CHURCHES ON EARTH...
THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE IN THE OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM.
AS YOU CAN SEE
CHRISTIANS FROM AROUND THE WORLD ARE HERE VISITING THIS SITE,
THE SITE THAT MANY BELIEVE JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED, BURIED, ROSE FROM THE DEAD
ON A LITTLE HILL, THAT'S INSIDE THE CHURCH, CALLED GOLGOTHA.
THE EMPEROR HADRIAN,
THE ROMAN EMPEROR,
DESTROYED THE STATE OF JUDEA IN THE YEAR 135 AFTER A JEWISH REVOLT.
THE TEMPLE HAD ALREADY BEEN DESTROYED IN A.D. 70,
REPLACED BY A TEMPLE TO A PAGAN GOD, JUPITER.
HERE THERE WAS A PAGAN TEMPLE TO THE GOD VENUS.
THAT WAS DELIBERATE
BECAUSE THE ROMANS KNEW THAT CHRISTIANS REVERED THIS SIGHT AS SOME SORT OF A SPECIAL PLACE.
A JEWISH MINI-STATE REMAINED IN THE LAND AFTER JUDEA WAS DESTROYED
AND RENAMED SYRIA PALESTINA,
A NAME THAT WAS DELIBERATELY PICKED TO INSULT THE JEWS
BECAUSE IT CAME FROM THEIR ANCIENT ENEMY THE PHILISTINES.
UP IN THE NORTHERN GALILEE A JEWISH STATE REMAINED IN EFFECT.
IN FACT THE SANHEDRIN WAS RECONSTITUTED THERE.
IN THE 4TH CENTURY THE ROMAN EMPIRE WAS DIVIDED.
THE EASTERN HALF IS RULED BY THE BYZANTINES FROM CONSTANTINOPLE.
THE WESTERN HALF REMAINED UNDER ROMAN RULE.
THE BYZANTINES FIERCELY PERSECUTED THE JEWS HERE IN THE LAND
AND MANY OF THEM FLED TO THE EAST TO MESOPOTAMIA OR BABYLON.
YET SOME JEWISH COMMUNITIES REMAINED,
IN FACT, THE RECORDS SHOW IN THE 6TH CENTURY THERE WERE 43 JEWISH COMMUNITIES REMAINING.
THE ROMAN EMPEROR CONSTANTINE
CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY
IN THE 4TH CENTURY.
THE TEMPLE THAT WAS HERE
TO VENUS
WAS DESTROYED BY HIS MOTHER
QUEEN HELENA
WHO CAME BY TO FIND
CHRISTIAN HOLY SITES
IN THIS LAND.
THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE THAT YOU SEE BEHIND ME HAS 6 DENOMINATIONS OPERATING IN IT...
THE GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH WHICH WAS BASED IN CONSTANTINOPLE BUT THAT BECAME ISTANBUL...
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THERE...
ARMENIAN ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS ALSO ARE THERE...
THE SYRIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH OPERATES THERE...
THE EGYPTIAN COPTIC CHURCH...
AND THE ETHIOPIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH.
IT'S NOT ALWAYS EASY FOR THESE DIFFERENT DENOMINATIONS TO BE TOGETHER IN THIS BUILDING
AND THERE ARE SOME CLASHES.
IN THE YEAR 614 THE PERSIANS INVADED THE LAND,
THEY DAMAGED THE CHURCH,
BUT THEY WEREN'T THERE VERY LONG.
IN 630 THE BYZANTINES RECAPTURED IT.
BUT JUST A FEW YEARS AFTER THAT IN 638 A NEW RELIGION, ISLAM,
SENT IT'S FORCES UP TO THIS LAND
BEHIND ME YOU SEE THE TOWER OF DAVID.
THAT WAS A MOSQUE MINARET.
IT'S GONE BETWEEN CHRISTIAN, JEWISH AND MUSLIM RULE OVER THE CENTURIES.
THEY ALSO CAPTURED THE TEMPLE MOUNT;
THEY BEGAN WORK ON A MAGNIFICENT SHRINE, "THE DOME OF THE ROCK"
THAT WAS FINISHED IN THE YEAR 691.
THE MUSLIMS THAT RULED HERE DIDN'T SET THIS UP AS A CAPITAL.
THEY RULED THE CITY BUT THEY DID SO FROM BAGHDAD,
SOMETIMES FROM DAMASCUS,
SOMETIMES FROM CAIRO.
AND THE DIFFERENT ARMIES FROM THOSE DIFFERENT AREAS WOULD CLASH HERE IN THE CITY OFTEN.
IN THE YEAR 1009 THE CHURCH WAS DESTROYED BY CALIPH AL HAKIM.
THIS WAS ONE OF THE PROMPTS FOR THE CRUSADES.
THE POPE IN ROME SAID, "WE MUST GO TO THE HOLY CITY",
"WE MUST RECAPTURE IT."
AND IN 1096 CRUSADER FORCES LANDED DOWN ON THE COAST
CAPTURING THE CITY OF JERUSALEM IN 1099.
BUT IT DIDN'T LAST VERY LONG.
THEY WERE DEFEATED BY THE MUSLIM FORCES LED BY SALADIN
UP NEAR THE SEA OF GALILEE IN THE YEAR 1187.
JERUSALEM WAS AGAIN UNDER MUSLIM RULE
AND THEY WERE FINALLY PUSHED OUT OF THE ENTIRE LAND IN 1291.
MEANWHILE JEWS WERE BEING EXPELLED FROM VARIOUS EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.
THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH WAS UNHAPPY THAT THEY HAD HELPED THE MUSLIMS TO RE-TAKE THE CITY.
THEY WERE EXPELLED FROM ENGLAND,
THEN FROM FRANCE,
THEN FROM GERMANY, FROM HUNGARY,
FINALLY FROM SPAIN AND PORTUGAL IN 1492 AND 1497.
THE MUSLIMS AGAIN WERE RULING THIS LAND.
AGAIN IT WAS DIFFERENT MUSLIM GROUPS OFTEN CLASHING,
THE MAMLUKS, THEY WERE BASED IN DAMASCUS AND IN CAIRO.
AND THEN IN THE YEAR 1516 A NEW EMPIRE TOOK CONTROL,
THE TURKISH OTTOMAN EMPIRE GAINED THIS CITY AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS.
AND THESE MAGNIFICENT WALLS THAT YOU SEE BEHIND ME WERE BUILT BY SULEIMAN, THE MAGNIFICENT.
AT THAT TIME THE RECORDS SHOW THERE WERE 30 JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN THE LAND.
AND THE TURKISH MUSLIMS WERE FAIRLY TOLERANT OF THE JEWS LIVING HERE,
PERSECUTION DECREASED AND JEWISH LIFE WAS THRIVING FAIRLY WELL.
BUT THAT WAS AT THE BEGINNING.
TOWARDS THE END OF THE OTTOMAN RULE MORE ANTI-JEWISH RULERS EMERGED THAT PERSECUTED THE JEWS
AND IT WAS A BAD SITUATION THAT ONLY STARTED TO CHANGE
WHEN THE EUROPEAN POWERS GAINED MORE AND MORE INFLUENCE IN THE 1800s.
NOT EVERYBODY LOVES HISTORY.
BUT DAVID DOES SUCH A GOOD JOB WITH IT.
AND WHEN IT COMES TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL, IT'S NOT JUST HISTORY
ITS "HIS-STORY"...GOD'S STORY.
AND WE LOVE EXPOSING IT ALL TO YOU.
TRAVEL MANAGER TRACIE
THEY CAN GET TO IT FIRST HAND CAN'T THEY?
THEY CAN.
YOU DO AN EXCELLENT JOB OF
REALLY TALKING ABOUT THE PLACES
BUT I THINK WHAT PEOPLE
EXPERIENCE AND WHAT I'VE HEARD
FROM OUR PASSENGERS IS
JUST THE INTIMACY THEY EXPERIENCE,
THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IN THE HOLY LAND IS SO STRONG
IT'S AMAZING.
SO THEY CAN CALL
1-800-WONDERS
AND GET TO YOU
AND GET TO ISRAEL.
THEY CAN.
AND THEY BETTER CALL QUICKLY
CAUSE I TELL YOU WHAT,
OUR TOURS BOOK 8 AND 9 MONTHS IN ADVANCE.
WE'RE ALREADY SELLING FOR TOURS MANY MONTHS IN ADVANCE.
ONE THING PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW DR. SEIF IS
ON OUR WEBSITE
WE HAVE OUR DATES UP
THROUGH THE NEXT
COUPLE OF YEARS.
PEOPLE CAN REGISTER
ON OUR WEBSITE;
THEY CAN ORDER
ALL THE MATERIALS.
AND WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO
EXPERIENCE IN ISRAEL
IS THE PRESENCE AND
INTIMACY OF THE LORD.
AND YOU KNOW ONE OF OUR RECENT PASSENGERS, DEBORAH,
HAD AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE ON THE SEA OF GALILEE.
SO LET'S GO TO DEBORAH RIGHT NOW
AND LET HER TELL YOU PERSONALLY
ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE IN ISRAEL.
I UNDERSTAND THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME TO ISRAEL.
HOW ARE YOU ENJOYING IT? >>I LOVE IT.
I'VE RESEARCHED TRIPS A LONG TIME
AND WANTED SOMEONE THAT REALLY UNDERSTOOD THE JEWISH PERSPECTIVE.
THE THING THAT I LIKE THE MOST
WAS THE SEA OF GALILEE AND THE EXPERIENCE...
THE HOLY SPIRIT JUST CAME ON OUR BOAT
AND PEOPLE WERE PRAISING AND WORSHIPING
AND IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING THING I'VE BEEN APART OF
INTELLECTUALLY AND SPIRITUALLY.
WE'RE JUST SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU ON THE ZOLA TOUR. >>THANK YOU.
IT'S BEEN A REAL BLESSING.
I INVITE YOU TO COME WITH US
SO YOU CAN HAVE AN EXPERIENCE SIMILAR TO DEBORAH'S.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR TOURS IS AVAILABLE AT
LEVITT.COM
OR CALL ME AT 1-800-WONDERS.
I'M IN THE OFFICE EVERY DAY AND WOULD LOVE TO TALK WITH YOU.
AND THEY'LL GET TO YOU.
AND WE'LL GET YOU TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
CAN'T GO BUT STILL WANT TO KNOW?
YOU CAN GET OUR MAGAZINE
AT WWW.LEVITT.COM
TIMELY NEWS RELATED TO THE JEWS.
WE WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.
THE OFFER FOR THIS PROGRAM
IS SOMETHING WE WANT YOU TO HAVE AS WELL.
IT'S A BIBLE STUDY,
"THE COVENANTS OF GOD".
WE LOOK AT THE SCRIPTURE,
WE SEE WHAT GOD SAYS,
WHAT'S BINDING RELATED TO ISRAEL
AND RELATED TO YOU.
WE'RE GOING TO NOW GO
TO THE MOUNT ON OLIVES.
I'M THERE WITH DAVID DOLAN
TALKING ABOUT BIBLICAL INFORMATION THAT'S RELATED TO TODAY.
YOU KNOW DAVE,
LOOKING BEHIND ME OVER HERE
I'M REMINDED OF THE FACT
THAT RELIGION REALLY HAS A WAY
OF INSPIRING PEOPLE, YES,
FOR GOOD AND BAD.
WHAT SAY YOU?
WELL ABSOLUTELY.
IN THE HISTORIC REVIEW
THAT I DID JUST A BIT AGO
I MENTIONED CONSTANTINE,
THE ROMAN EMPEROR
CONVERTING TO CHRISTIANITY
AND HIS MOTHER QUEEN HELENA
COMING OUT HERE TO CHECK ON
THE HOLY SITES OF CHRISTIANITY.
AND AS A RESULT
CHURCHES WERE BUILT
AND THE FAITH SPREAD HERE.
AN ENORMOUS INVESTMENT
OF ENERGY, MONEY
AND PEOPLE...AMAZING!
IT REALLY WAS.
AND OF COURSE HE WAS THE EMPEROR
AND SHE WAS THE QUEEN MOTHER >>SHE HAS TO GET PLENTY OF VOTES
AS IT WERE
SO THEY HAD A LOT OF THAT.
BUT THEN LATER ON WE SEE
THE NEGATIVE INFLUENCE
OF RELIGION AGAIN
FROM CHRISTIANITY TO CRUSADES.
THEY CAME DOWN OF COURSE TO
RE-CONQUER THE LAND FOR CHRIST
BUT IN DOING SO,
AS YOU KNOW WELL,
KILLED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS
OF JEWS AND MUSLIMS AND OTHERS
AND MANY OF THEM WERE KILLED.
AND THE MUSLIM RULE LATER ON
HAD GOOD AND BAD.
GOOD IN THAT THEY ESTABLISHED
SOME ECONOMIC REFORMS
AND THE STANDARD OF LIVING
WAS INCREASED FOR THE PEOPLE.
BUT AGAIN THERE WAS PERSECUTION
OF JEWS AND OF CHRISTIANS
AND THE DESTRUCTION
OF SOME OF THE EARLIER
CHRISTIAN HOLY SITES, ETC.
IT SOMETHING,
THE NATURE OF RELIGIOUS
ENTHUSIASM FOR GOOD
OR FOR BAD...
BUT IT MOBILIZES,
IT ELICITS ENERGIES.
IT DOES.
AND FOR THE MOST PART
FOR THE GOOD.
WE HAVE SEVERAL HOSPITALS
HERE IN TOWN
THAT WERE STARTED BY
CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES
IN THE 1800s.
WE'RE RIGHT NEXT TO
THE AUGUSTA VICTORIA
ONE THAT GERMAN LUTHERANS FOUNDED.
SO VERY POSITIVE IN THAT SENSE
BUT YOU KNOW THIS IS
THE ONLY SPOT ON EARTH JEFF
THAT'S HOLY
TO THREE DIFFERENT FAITHS
IT IS UNIQUE IN THAT WAY
AND THEY DON'T ALWAYS
FIT TOGETHER SO WELL
AND EVEN THE DIFFERENT GROUPS
INSIDE OF THE FAITHS,
THE DIFFERENT DENOMINATIONS
IN JUDAISM, CHRISTIANITY,
THEY CLASH AT TIMES.
THE GROUPS INSIDE
OF THE CHURCHES GO AT IT.
LAST NIGHT I WAS SPEAKING
TO TWO CATHOLIC PRIESTS
THAT WERE JUST CHAGRINED
ABOUT HOW THE WAY THE MONKS
ARE FIGHTING IN THE
CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE.
GO FIGURE.
THEY THOUGHT IT WAS
AN EMBARRASSMENT
AND I AGREE.
I'VE ACTUALLY WITNESSED IT
OUT IN BETHLEHEM
WHERE THEY HAVE BROOM HANDLES
AND THEY WERE
ATTACKING EACH OTHER.
AND THIS WAS BECAUSE ONE GROUP,
I THINK THE ARMENIANS,
WERE CLEANING A CERTAIN WALL
THAT THE GREEK ORTHODOX SAID
WAS THEIR WALL
AND THEY SHOULD CLEAN IT.
SO THE ISSUES WERE
EVEN JUST TINY.
RIGHT,
THOSE STORIES ARE LEGIONS.
SO AS YOU NOTED
THAT RELIGION...
AND THERE ARE PLENTY OF EXAMPLES
HAS A WAY OF ELICITING ENERGIES.
BUT THEN THERE'S SOMETHING ELSE
BESIDE RELIGION
THAT'S RELATED TO IT.
IT'S THE VOICE OF GOD.
AND OUR STORY HERE
BEGAN WITH ABRAHAM
AND JUST THE BIBLICAL DRAMA
OF INDIVIDUALS HEARING GOD
AND RESPONDING
AND GOING ON A JOURNEY.
IT TAKES THEM TO INTERESTING PLACES DOESN'T IT?
LAST WORD'S YOURS.
IT ABSOLUTELY DOES
AND IF THERE WASN'T GOD
IT WOULD BE A MESS.
BUT THERE IS A GOD
AND HE HAS IT
ALL IN HIS HANDS.
YES AND SOMEHOW
ALL THESE TENSIONS GET RESOLVED
AS THE VOICE OF GOD
LEADS US ON IN TIME.
WONDERFUL YOUNG LADY.
WONDERFUL LOVE SONG
STRAIGHT FROM THE BIBLE.
IT REMINDS ME OF GOD'S LOVING HEART IN SO MANY WAYS.
LOVE FOR PEOPLE, THE JEWS, AND FOR ALL OF US FOR THAT MATTER.
GOD'S BINDING LOVE IS SO AMPLY ATTESTED IN BIBLICAL LITERATURE
AND HERE THE LATE ZOLA LEVITT INTERVIEWS A RABBI WHO GIVES VOICE TO THAT AND MORE.
(JEFF SPEAKING)
ON ONE OF ZOLA'S MANY TRIPS TO ISRAEL
HE VISITED RABBI RUBEN GRODNER
AT A WEST BANK SETTLEMENT CALLED KFAR EDOMIM.
THE RABBI READ FROM THE BOOK OF GENESIS
AND TALKED ABOUT GOD'S EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH ABRAHAM.
(SPEAKING HEBREW)
"TO BE UNTO YOU A GOD AND TO YOUR CHILDREN AFTER YOU."
THIS COVENANT OF THE LAND THAT WAS MADE BETWEEN GOD AND ABRAHAM
WAS NOT A COVENANT OF THE PAST;
IT IS A COVENANT OF THE PRESENT
AND A COVENANT OF THE FUTURE.
YOU READ B'RIT OLAM.
B'RIT OLAM, AN EVERLASTING, AN ETERNAL COVENANT.
"AND I SHALL GIVE...."
(SPEAKING HEBREW)
"I SHALL GIVE YOU THE ENTIRE LAND OF CANAAN."
NOT A PART OF IT...
NOT A PIECE OF IT...
NOT TO BE GIVEN AWAY TO OTHERS.
THIS IS YOUR LAND...
ALL OF IT.
(SPEAKING HEBREW)
AGAIN WE HEAR THE WORD "OLAM", "ETERNAL", "FOREVER'...
AN ETERNAL INHERITANCE.
"AND I SHALL BE YOUR GOD."
AND WE'RE STANDING HERE
ON THE WEST BANK
SO OBVIOUSLY YOU'RE NOT IN FAVOR OF GIVING ANY OF THIS AWAY.
THIS IS THE HEARTLAND OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
JUDEA...
TO THE NORTH SAMARIA...
THIS IS WHERE OUR FOREFATHERS TREAD.
WHEN WE HIKE IN THESE HILLS
WE FOLLOW THE FOOTSTEPS OF ABRAHAM AND ISAAC AND JACOB
AND THAT IS OUR LAND.
NOT THE LAND OF OTHERS
BUT THIS IS OUR HOMELAND.
NO HUMAN BEING WANTS TO GIVE AWAY HIS HOME TO ANYBODY
AND WE, THE CHOSEN PEOPLE, DO NOT WANT TO GIVE ONE INCH OF OUR LAND TO ANYONE ELSE.
THIS IS THE LAND PROMISED TO US BY GOD.
WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID I LEARNED A SONG,
"THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND, THIS LAND IS MY LAND."
THIS LAND IS GOD'S LAND.
WE LOOK HERE IN THE BOOK GENESIS
WHERE THE LORD COMMENDS THIS REAL ESTATE
TO THE BROOK OF EGYPT
TO THE SOUTH
UP TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER HERE.
THE EASTERN BORDER IS A LITTLE VAGUER
BUT ONE THING THAT'S CLEAR
IS THAT THE LAND PROMISED TO ABRAHAM
IS A LOT BIGGER THAN THE LITTLE SLIVER OF TODAY THAT'S CALLED THE MODERN STATE OF ISRAEL.
PEOPLE SAY "THE JEWS ARE TAKING OVER THE WORLD"...
ABSOLUTE FANTASY.
PERSONALLY I'M ALL ABOUT WANTING TO EMPLOY SOME BIBLICAL REALITY
TO COUNTER-BALANCE TODAY'S NON-REALITY,
HENCE, THE SERIES ON THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
THIS WEEK WE LOOKED AT ABRAHAM,
NEXT WEEK WE LOOK AT ISAAC.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GOING ON THE JOURNEY AND AS YOU GO NOW,
PLEASE,
SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM
PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM
