Jerusalem Dateline: Christmas in the Holy Land

Ad Feedback

This week on Jerusalem Dateline, it's Christmas in the Holy Land.

Record numbers of tourists will flock to Bethlehem to see the birthplace of Jesus during this Christmas season. At the same time, many Christians who live there are moving out of Bethlehem. 

See why the Christian population of Bethlehem has dropped from 90 percent to just 10 percent.

CBN News then heads to Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity. Is it the authentic birthplace of Jesus? Experts weigh in with convincing evidence.

Next, we go to a workshop where olive wood carvings are lovingly made by artisans who practice a craft passed down through the generations.

Also, see inside St. Anne's Church in Jerusalem's Old City. The church, well-known for its amazing acoustics, is a popular destination for choirs visiting the Holy Land.
