The City of David: Part Six

Jewish pilgrims in the 2nd Temple Period went through a ritual cleansing before ascending to the Temple. How did they travel from the ritual bath to the Temple? Along the newly discovered Pilgrim Road.

In the last part of this special series of Encounter Israel, we will explore the most recent and ongoing excavations at the Pilgrimage Road. These include the drainage channel, where some 2000 Jews hid during the Roman destruction of Jerusalem 70AD, a golden bell in the shape of a pomegrante - likely from the hem of the high priest's robe,  a slab containing the earliest known etching of a menorah, and more.

In this video, ICEJ VP & Senior Spokesman David Parsons leads us on a tour to investigate the importance of this road in ancient Jewish life and today.

Life in the Golan - The Beauty

For many years, the Golan was held by Syria and they turned the land into a big military base with mine fields, bunkers, and trenches. Yet, ever since Israel has lived in the Golan, the Israelis have turned it into a place of beauty.

Israelis now enjoy the Golan as a vacation place with skiing, hiking, camping, enjoying fresh produce from orchards, and just to live! About 15,000 Jews live in the Golan Heights because they enjoy the peace and natural beauty that surrounds them!

As you watch this video, you will discover that after Israel gained control over the Golan Heights, the Golan began to captivate the people of Israel!

Life on the Golan - The Border

The Golan Heights is a long, flat, plateau in Northern Israel, which has been in Israel's hands for 50 years. But why does Israel need to hold on to the Golan Heights going forward?

After Israel captured the Golan from Syria in 1967, they had to continue to defend it in 1973 during the Yom Kippur war. It was an intense battle, but since Israel's victory in 1973 the Golan Israeli border has been the most quiet compared to all the other borders of Israel. Yet, over the past eight years there has been a civil war in Syria, and when you are in the Golan Heights you can hear the bombs going off in Syria.

Before the Syrian civil war, Israel wanted to give the Golan Heights back to Syria, but most Israelis are glad that their leaders held on to the Golan. 

As you watch this video, you will learn from ICEJ's VP & Senior Spokesman David Parsons about the Golan Heights and why it is good that Israel is still in control of the Golan!

Why?...Because of the Glory of God's Name!

Why did God choose the nation of Israel? ....

Because of the Glory of God's Name! God explains that he is sanctifying His Holy Name through the people and nation of Israel in Ezekiel 36:22-24:

“Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Sovereign Lord, when I am proved holy through you before their eyes. For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land.'"

God is a covenant keeping God who is restoring the glory of His name through the Jewish people and the land of Israel.

Watch this final video and learn more about the glory of God's name magnified through the people of Israel. Through this video series, we hope you have been challenged, inspired, and awakened to more of God's magnificent heart of love, covenant, and glory towards Israel, the nations, and YOU!
