Efrem: TODAY ON

"NEWSWATCH," HE SAID

HILLARY CLINTON WAS

EXTREMELY CARELESS AND

SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.

NOW REPUBLICANS WANT TO

KNOW WHY THE F.B.I.

DIRECTOR DIDN'T PRESS

CHARGES.

PLUS...INSIDE THE CLINTON

WHITE HOUSE, A SECRET

SERVICE AGENT REVEALS

SHOCKING TRUTHS ABOUT

HILLARY CLINTON.

> AND ISRAEL'S BEST

FRIEND, BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU, EXTENDS AN OPEN

INTATIOINVITATION TO PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

IT IS OFFICIAL, NEITHER

THE F.B.I. NOR THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL ARE

CHARGING HILLARY CLINTON

FOR USING A PERSONAL

E-MAIL SERVER TO HANDLE

CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

BUT REPUBLICANS IN

CONGRESS ARE PROMISING

HEADLINES OVER CLINTON'S

SERVER WILL NOT GO AWAY

ANY TIME SOON.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS MORE.

Reporter: F.B.I.

DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY

ADDRESSING LAWMAKERS

TODAY, EAGER TO UNDERSTAND

WHY HIS AGENCY WOULDN'T

RECOMMEND CRIMINAL CHARGES

BE FILED AGAINST HILLARY

CLINTON.

OUR JUDGMENT IS THAT NO

REASONABLE PROSECUTOR

WOULD BRING SUCH A CASE.

Reporter: IT WAS

ANNOUNCED ON TUESDAY, BUT

DESPITE HIS

RECOMMENDATION, COMEY

HARSHLY CRITICIZED CLINTON

FOR USING PRIVATE E-MAIL

SERVERS TO CONDUCT

GOVERNMENT BUSINESS.

THERE IS EVIDENCE THEY

WERE EXTREMELY CARELESS IN

THEIR HANDLING OF VERY

SENSITIVE, HIGHLY

CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

Reporter: IT HAS

MEMBER REPUBLICANS AND

CONSERVATIVES RAISING

QUESTIONS AS TO WHY NO

CHARGES WERE RECOMMENDED.

CHAIRMAN JASON CHAVEZ SAID

IN A STATEMENT: "THE

F.B.I.'S RECOMMENDATION IS

SURPRISING AND CONFUSING."

THE FACT PATTERN PRESENTED

BY DIRECTOR COMEY MAKES

CLEAR THAT SECRETARY

CLINTON VIOLATED THE LAW.

CHAVEZ GOES ON TO SAY THAT

CONGRESS AND THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO

UNDERSTAND THE F.B.I.'S

INVESTIGATION.

CLINTON HAS MAINTAINED SHE

HAS NEVER SENT OR RECEIVED

E-MAILS THAT WERE MARKED

CLASSIFIED, AND YET COMEY

SAYS THE F.B.I. FOUND OVER

100 E-MAILS ON HER SERVER

THAT CONTAINED THE

CLASSIFIED MARKING, AS

WELL AS ANY INFORMATION.

ANY REASONABLE PERSON

IN SECRETARY CLINTON'S

POSITION SO HAVE KNOWN

THAT AN UNCLASSIFIED

INFORMATION WAS NO PLACE

FOR THAT CONVERSATION.

Reporter Reporter: STILL, THE

F.B.I. DIRECTOR SAYS THE

INVESTIGATION DID NOT FIND

CLEAR EVIDENCE THAT SHE

HAD INTENTIONALLY BROKEN

THE LAW.

ON WEDNESDAY,

ATTORNEY-GENERAL LORETTA

LYNCH OFFICIALLY CLOSED

THE YEAR-LONG

INVESTIGATION AGAINST

CLINTON.

LYNCH WILL ALSO TESTIFY

BEFORE CONGRESS LATER THIS

MONTH.

37-YEAR-OLD ALTON STERLING

> IN MINNESOTA, ANOTHER

BLACK MAN WAS SHOT AND

KILLED BY POLICE DURING A

TRAFFIC STOP.

PROTESTORS GATHERED ON THE

STREETS AFTER VIDEO OF THE

TRAFFIC STOP WAS RELEASED.

THE WOMAN IN THE DRIVER'S

SEAT USED Facebook LIVE

TO BROADCAST THE SHOOTING.

IT SHOWS A MAN SITTING IN

THE PASSENGER SEAT, DYING

AFTER THE OFFICER SHOT HIM

IN THE ARM.

SHE SAYS CASTIL WAS

REACHING FOR THIS I.D.

WHEN THE OFFICER SHOT HIM.

> ISLAMIC TERRORISTS

HERALD HOME MADE BOMBS AND

ENGAGED IN A GUN BATTLE

WITH POLICE.

AT LEAST ONE OF THE BOMBS

EXPLODED DURING THE

PRAYER, WHICH WAS ATTENDED

BY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS.

FOUR PEOPLE DIED DURING

THE ATTACK, AND DOZENS

OTHERS WERE INJURED.

IT COMES DAYS AFTER THE

DEADLY HOSTAGE INCIDENT AT

AN UP-HELD RESTAURANT

THERE THAT LEFT 28 PEOPLE

DEAD.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU MET

WITH A GROUP OF

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS IN

NAIROBI, KENYA, ON HIS

FOUR-DAY TRIP TO AFRICA.

HE SAID ISRAEL HAS NO

BETTER FRIENDS THAN

CHRISTIANS, WHO SUPPORT

AND LOVE ISRAEL.

Reporter: THE SOUND

OF SOFFAS GREETED BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU.

HE INVITED THE CROWD TO

COME TO ISRAEL, THE LAND

OF THE BIBLE.

THOSE OF YOU HAVEN'T

COME, COME THE FIRST TIME,

AND THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN,

COME AGAIN.

YOU'LL COME TO THE SEA OF

GALILEE.

> IT IS A FISHING

BOTTLEBOAT,AND IT IS RIGHT AT THE

TIME OF JESUS.

SO IT STANDS THERE IN

KIBBUTZ, AND WHEN YOU COME

THERE, YOU WILL SEE IT.

I CAN'T TELL YOU THAT

JESUS WAS ON THAT BOAT.

BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT

THAT BOAT WAS IN THE TIME

OF JESUS.

Reporter: HE

DESCRIBED THE COMMON BOND

OF JEWS AND CHRISTIANS

GROUNDED IN THE LAND OF

THE BIBLE.

THESE ARE REAL PLACES.

THEY SPEAK TO YOU AND THEY

SPEAK TO US.

WE CAME BACK TO THE LAND

OF ISRAEL AND REALIZED THE

DREAMS OF THE PROPHETS, OF

THE IN-GATHERING, AND I'M

GLAD I HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY, THE

PRIVILEGE, REALLY, OF

COMING TO AFRICA TO MEET

YOU.

WE HAVE NO BETTER FRIENDS

IN THE WORLD -- NONE.

WE APPRECIATE OUR FRIENDS.

[APPLAUSE]

AND WE'RE EXPANDING IT

INTO THE CONTINENT OF

AFRICA.

Reporter: NETANYAHU'S

TRIP REPRESENTS A NEW

BEGINNING IN

AFRICAN-ISRAELI RELATIONS.

SEVEN LEADERS FROM

SEVEN AFRICAN COUNTRIES

TALKING ABOUT HOW TO

EXPAND THEIR RELATIONSHIP

WITH ISRAEL.

ISRAEL IS COMING BACK TO

AFRICA.

AFRICA IS COMING BACK TO

ISRAEL.

WE WANT TO SEE AFRICA BE

THE SUCCESS STORY IT CAN

BE.

AND WE WANT TO BE PART OF

IT, IN WATER, IN DAILY

PRODUCTION, AND WE'RE

EAGER TO SHARE ALL OF THIS

WITH OUR AFRICAN FRIENDS.

Reporter: AND HE ALSO

DESCRIBED THE DISMAL

SITUATION FOR CHRISTIANS

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

AND THE MIDDLE EAST

TODAY, UNFORTUNATELY, THE

ATTITUDE TOWARDS

CHRISTIANS AND

CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A GOOD

ONE.

YOU SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING

WITH DAESH AND WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO THE CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITIES AND TO THE

YAZIDI AND TO THE OTHERS.

THERE IS ONE PLACE IN THE

MIDDLE EAST WHERE THE

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY IS NOT

ONLY NOT SHRINKING, IT IS

THRIVING AND EXPANDING,

AND IT IS SAFE AND IT IS

WELCOME, AND THAT PLACE IS

ISRAEL.

YOU ARE WELCOME IN ISRAEL.

Reporter: AT THE END

OF THE MEETING, THE

CHRISTIAN LEADERS

PRESENTED NETANYAHU WITH A

GIFT.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: FORMER FOX

NEWS ANCHOR GRETCHEN

CARLSON IS SUING THE

NETWORK'S CHIEF EXECUTIVE.

SHE CLAIMS SHE WAS FIRED

BECAUSE SHE REFUSED HIS

SEXUAL ADVANCES.

SHE SAYS HE REPORTEDLY

TOLD HER, QUOTE,"YOU AND I

SHOULD HAVE HAD A SEXUAL

RELATIONSHIP A LONG TIME

AGO."

AND SHE SAID THERE WAS A

PATTERN OF DISCRIMINATORY

BEHAVIOR AT FOX.

IN HER LAST ROLE AT FOX,

SHE ANCHORED A SHOW CALLED

"THE REAL STORY," AND THAT

CAME AFTER 11 YEARS.

FOX HAS RESPONDED TO

CARLSON'S LAWSUIT SAYING

HER CONTRACT WAS SIMPLY

NOT RENEWED, AND THAT IS

WHY SHE FILED HER SUIT.

> COMING UP, EXPLOSIVE

TEMPERS, NAME-CALLING, AND

BIBLE BASHING, ONE FORMER

SECURITY SERVICE AGENT

TELLS THE INSIDE SCOOP ON

THE CLINTON YEARS.

DON'T GO AWAY.

Efrem: SO WHAT REALLY

WENT ON IN THE WHITE HOUSE

WHEN PRESIDENT BILL

CLINTON WAS IN OFFICE, AND

HILLARY CLINTON WAS FIRST

LADY.

A SECRET SERVICE AGENT WHO

WAS THERE HAS WRITTEN A

BOOK ABOUT WHAT HE SAW

BEHIND THE SCENES.

HE SAYS THE PRIVATE

HILLARY CLINTON WAS VERY

DIFFERENT FROM WHAT PEOPLE

SAW IN PUBLIC.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THIS

STORY.

Jennifer: AS A

UNIFORMED OFFICER IN THE

SECRET SERVICE, GARY

BANGERBARNES STOOD STAND OUTSIDE

THE OFFICE WHILE THE

CLINTONS WERE INSIDE.

HIS NEW BOOK, "CRISIS OF

CHARACTER," A WHITE HOUSE

SECURITY SERVICE OFFICER

DISCLOSES HIS FIRSTHAND

EXPERIENCE WITH HILLARY

AND BILL.

HE SAYS SHE EVEN THREW A

BIBLE AT ONE AGENT,

HITTING HIM IN FRON THE HEAD.

HE SAID OUTSIDE THE PUBLIC

EYE, SHE WAS COLD,

EMOTIONAL, AND EVEN

DANGEROUS.

BURNES SAYS HE TRIED TO

KEEP MONICA LEWINSKY AWAY

FROM PRESIDENT CLINTON,

AND HE CONCEALED SEVERAL

AFFAIRS HE HAD INSIDE THE

OVAL OFFICE.

INCLUDING ONE WITH WALTER

MONDALE'S DAUGHTER.

CLINTON ALLIES ARE

FIGHTING BACK, SAYING THAT

BURNES DIDN'T HAVE THE

ACCESS HE CLAIMS.

BUT BURNES WRITES, FROM

THE BOTTOM OF HIS SOUL, HE

KNOWS SHE LACKS THE

INTEGRITY AND TEMPERMENT

TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT.

Efrem: CBN FOUNDER

PAPAT ROBERTSON SPOKE WITH

FORMER SECRET SERVICE

OFFICER GARY BURNINGS.

>GARY BURNES.

I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD

BE COMPELLED TO DO THIS.

BUT AS TIME WENT ON, I

FELT IT IS MY DUTY TO LET

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW

BECAUSE THIS PERSON WANTS

TO BECOME THE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES.

I DON'T THINK IT IS A GOOD

THING.

CLEARLY I MADE A DECISION

TO GO FORWARD AND TELL

THESE THINGS THAT NORMALLY

WOULDN'T BE TOLD.

BUT IT IS NOT THE FIRST

TIME SOMEBODY FROM THE

SECRET SERVICE HAS DONE

THIS.

AND I WASN'T THE ONE THAT

COMPELLED ME TO TESTIFY.

IT WAS PRESIDENT CLINTON'S

BEHAVIOR THAT BROUGHT

MYSELF AND ALL OF THESE

OTHER SECRET SERVICE

EMPLOYEES INTO THIS MONICA

LEWINSKY SCANDAL.

IT WAS THEIR BEHAVIOR THAT

SET THIS UP.

Pat: GARY, I WANT TO

READ SOMETHING THAT IS IN

HERE, TO SET THINGS UP.

LET'S SAY IT STRAIGHT OUT,

HILLARY CLINTON LIED ABOUT

THE REASON FOR THE

BENGHAZI ATTACK.

SHE LIED ABOUT IT TO THE

NATION AS A WHOLE, AND SHE

LIED RIGHT IN THE FACES OF

GRIEVING FAMILY MEMBERS OF

THOSE WHO DIED THERE, AND

THEN LIED ABOUT HER LYING.

SHE KEEPS TELLING

AMERICANS ONE HUGE,

DISGUSTING LIE AFTER

ANOTHER.

HILLARY HAS CLAIMED,

QUOTE,"WE DIDN'T LOSE A

SINGLE PERSON IN LIBYA"

REALLY?

TRY TELLING THAT TO THE

FAMILIES WHO LOST MEMBERS.

YOU HAVE FIRSTHAND

EXAMPLES OF HER LYING.

COULD YOU GIVE US A COUPLE

OF THEM?

THE THINGS I SAY IN MY

BOOK, "CRISIS OF

CHARACTER," IS MOSTLY

ABOUT HER BEHAVIOR.

BUT CERTAINLY THE CASE

THAT YOU CITE, WITH

MR. SMITH, WHERE -- HOW DO

YOU TELL A GRIEVING MOTHER

ONE THING AND LATER ON SHE

FINDS OUT THE TRUTH IS

SOMETHING ELSE.

AND AT THE SAME TIME SHE

IS LYING TO THIS MOTHER,

SHE IS TEXTING OTHER

PEOPLE AND TELLING THAT

WHAT THE TRUTH IS, THAT IT

WAS A TERRORIST ATTACK.

THAT'S THE BEST EXAMPLE

THAT I'VE SEEN RECENTLY.

OTHER EXAMPLES I CITE IN

MY BOOK, "CRISIS OF

CHARACTER" -- THERE ARE

MANY OF THEM.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT HER?

YOU MENTIONED SHE THREW

THINGS AT ONE THE SECRET

SERVICE MEMBERS.

AS I UNDERSTAND, SHE HIT

SOMEBODY ON THE HEAD WITH

A BIBLE ON THE WAY TO

CHURCH OR SOMETHING.

IS THAT WHAT HAPPENED?

ONE MORNING I WAS

STANDING POSTED WITH AN

AGENT OUTSIDE THE OVAL

OFFICE.

I SAID, I HEARD SOMEBODY

GOT HIT WITH A BIBLE, WHAT

HAPPENED?

HE SAID, IT WAS ME.

HE SAID HE WAS IN THE

LIMOUSINE, AND THE FIRST

LADY WAS SITTING BEHIND

HIM.

AND SHE WAS IRATE ABOUT

SOMETHING, AND SHE HAD A

BIBLE IN HER HAND AND SHE

STRUCK HIM IN THE BACK OF

THE HEAD WITH THE BIBLE

FOR SOME REASON.

AND IT MADE HIM VERY MAD.

HE TURNED AROUND THE BEST

HE COULD, SITTING IN THAT

CAR, AND HE JUST DESCRIBED

TO HER THAT THAT WASN'T

GOING TO BE ACCEPTABLE

BEHAVIOR.

AND HE REPORTED IT UP THE

CHAIN OF COMMAND, BUT

BASICALLY THEIR ATTITUDE

WITH THIS KIND OF THING

IS, THAT'S THE WAY SHE IS.

THAT'S WHAT'S GOING TO

HAPPEN.

IT IS NOT THE FIRST

INCIDENT, AND IT WON'T BE

THE LAST.

AND ANOTHER TIME I WAS

ASKED TO DO A TOUR OF THE

OVAL OFFICE, MY OLD POST,

FOR SOME GUESTS OF THE

CLINTONS FROM ARKANSAS.

THIS STAFF MEMBER WANTED

TO BRING THEM OVER AND

LEAVE THEM IN THE OVAL

OFFICE, WHICH IS NOT

ACCEPTABLE.

THERE ARE MANY RULES AND

GUIDELINES THAT DICTATE

HOW PEOPLE -- WHEN THE

PRESIDENT IS NOT IN THE

OVAL OFFICE, HOW THE STAFF

OR THE FAMILY CAN GO IN

AND GO OUT OF THERE.

I EXPLAINED TO THE STAFF

MEMBER WHAT SHE WANTED TO

DO WASN'T POSSIBLE, BUT

SHE COULD ESCORT THEM AND

TAKE THEM ACROSS THE

HALLWAY TO THE ROOSEVELT

ROOM.

SHE SAID THIS WASN'T

ACCEPTABLE, AND THE STAFF

MEMBER BERATED ME, AND I'M

GOING TO TELL

MRS. CLINTON.

AS I'M RETELLING THE STORY

AGAIN, IT SEEMS SO

CHILD-LIKE.

A LITTLE WHILE LATER THE

FIRSTED LADY COMES DOWN

AND SHE BERATES ME AND

USES A LITTLE BIT OF HARSH

LANGUAGE, AND TELLS ME

SHE'S TIRED OF DEALING

WITH US.

I TRY TO TELL HER THAT

THESE ARE RULES AND

GUIDELINES THAT ARE SET IN

LAW.

AND I WOULD TRY TO

ACCOMMODATE HER.

AFTER SHE BERATED ME A

LITTLE MORE, I SAID,

LISTEN, WHEN YOUR GUESTS

ARE DONE IN THE OVAL

OFFICE, I'LL PUT THEM IN

THE ROOSEVELT ROOM AND

THAT WILL BE THE END OF

IT.

BUT THESE INTERACTIONS

WITH HER, WITH MY

CO-WORKERS -- THERE WERE

MANY OTHERS.

I HAVE A COUPLE MORE, IF

YOU HAVE THE TIME.

Pat: GO AHEAD.

I'M LISTENING.

TWO OFFICERS, THEY WERE

PRETTY NEW TO THE JOB,

THEY WERE ON LESS THAN A

YEAR.

AND MORNING I WAS IN A

BREAK ROOM, AND ONE OF THE

OFFICERS CAME DOWN AND HE

SAID, TODAY IS A WEIRD

DAY.

AND I SAID, HOW IS THAT?

AND HE SAID, I JUST SAID

HELLO TO THE FIRST LADY,

AND SHE TOLD ME TO GO TO

HELL.

AND WE KIND OF LOOKED AT

HIM, AND WE SAID, YOU'VE

GOT TO GET USED TO THAT.

SHE SEEMS HOSTILE TOWARDS

US.

WE TOLD HIM OUR OPINION,

WHAT WE EXPERIENCED WAS,

SHE DIDN'T SEEM TO LIKE

THE MILITARY OR LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

SO AS WE'RE TALKING,

ANOTHER GUY COMES OVER AND

GOES, THAT'S NOTHING.

A MONTH AGO I SAID GOOD

MORNING TO HER, AND SHE

TOLD ME TO GO (bleep)

MYSELF.

SO A SERGEANT OVERHEARD

US, AND HE REPORTED IT UP

THE CHAIN OF COMMAND, AND

THE SENIOR PEOPLE IN THE

SECRET SERVICE TOOK IT

PRETTY SERIOUS.

THEY APOLOGIZED, BUT THEY

EXPLAINED TO HIM BASICALLY

THE SAME THING WE HAD TOLD

HIM, THAT THE FIRST LADY

WAS KIND OF HOSTILE

TOWARDS US AT TIMES, AND

THAT'S THE WAY IT WAS.

Pat: YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT THE "F" WORD --

YES, SIR.

Pat: ADDRESSED HIM

AND TOLD HIM TO GO BLANK

HIMSELF.

YES, SIR.

Pat: PEOPLE DON'T

TALK THAT WAY, ESPECIALLY

THE FIRST LADY OF THE

UNITED STATES.

I DON'T MIND IF PEOPLE

USE SALTY LANGUAGE, BUT

WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT TO

A MAN WHO HAS BEEN UP ALL

NIGHT PROTECTING YOU.

AND THREE YEARS BEFORE

THAT, THAT PERSON WAS A

VETERAN -- HE WAS IN THE

U.S. ARMY, EXCUSE ME.

AND HE WAS ON A MISSION IN

SOMALIA, EARLY ON IN

SOMALIA, NOT LIKE TODAY

WHAT WE WOULD CALL

BLACKHAWK DOWN, BUT THIS

IS BEFORE THAT.

HE RECEIVED A PURPLE HEART

FOR BEING WOUNDED.

THREE YEARS LATER HE GETS

A JOB WITH THE SECRET

SERVICE, AND THE FIRST

LADY TELLS HIM TO GO "F"

HIMSELF.

THAT IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE.

Pat: YOU SAID IN YOUR

BOOK YOU DON'T THINK SHE

HAS THE CHARACTER TO BE

PRESIDENT.

DO YOU WANT TO EXPLAIN

THAT?

WHEN SHE WAS SECRETARY

OF STATE, WE HAD THE

INCIDENT WITH BENGHAZI.

SOMEBODY WITH CHARACTER,

SOMEBODY WHO IS A REAL

LATER, WOULD HAVE STAYED

ON AS SECRETARY OF STATE

AND PUT PROCEDURES IN

PLACE THAT WOULD NEVER LET

THAT HAPPEN AGAIN.

INSTEAD OF SHIFTING BLAME,

MAKING UP LIES, AND

TELLING THE FAMILIES LIES,

AND THEN JUST MOVING ON

STARTING TO RUN FOR

PRESIDENT.

A LEADER FIXES THINGS AND

GETS IT RIGHT AND THEN

MOVES ON.

Efrem: AND FOR MUCH

MORE OF GARY BURNES' STORY

AND HOW IT IS MAKING WAVES

IN THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE,

YOU CAN FIND ANOTHER

INTERVIEW WITH HIM IN THE

VIDEO IN OUR Facebook

PAGE WHERE HE LAYS OUT

THREE THINGS YOU SHOULD

KNOW ABOUT HILLARY

CLINTON.

> UP NEXT, NEW EVIDENCE

CHRISTIANITY SPREAD

RAPIDLY DURING THE FIFTH

THE CENTURY.

DISCOVER ISRAELI

ARCHEOLOGICAL SITES FOUND

IN THE MOST UNLIKELY

PLACES.

Efrem: IN ISRAEL, THE

GROWING CONSTRUCTION SITES

HAVE UNCOVERED SOME

ANCIENT TREASURES IN

UNLIKELY PLACES.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US

THIS LOOK AT WHAT

ARCHEOLOGISTS ARE FINDING,

INCLUDING HISTORIC

EVIDENCE OF HOW

CHRISTIANITY SPREAD

RAPIDLY IN THE REGION

AROUND THE FIFTH CENTURY.

Chris: HERE IN

ISRAEL'S CENTRAL PLAINS, A

BUILDING BOOM DOTS THE SKY

LINES, WITH CRANES IN

PLACES LIKE RUSSIAEIM.

THEY CONDUCT WHAT THEY

CALL A SALVAGE EXCAVATION.

WE STARTED DIGGING

HERE, OKAY, AND WE DIDN'T

KNOW WHAT WE WERE GOING TO

FIND.

AFTER THREE MONTHS, WE

EXPOSED A LARGE MONASTERY.

Chris: THE DISCOVERY

OF MANY IMPRESSIVE

CHURCHES AND MONASTERIES

SHOWED THAT CHRISTIANITY

SPREAD RAPIDLY AROUND THE

FIFTH CENTURY.

THIS EXCAVATION DIRECTOR

SAYS THE BIZANTINE CHURCH

IS PAINTED WITH THE

COLORFUL MOSAIC.

IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME

LIKE TODAY.

PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW THAT

THEY GAVE THE MONEY -- AND

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND IT

IS VERY EXPENSIVE TO BUILD

A COMPLEX LIKE THIS.

Chris: THE INS

INSCRIPTION SAYS, "PEACE

BE UPON YOU WHEN YOU COME,

AND PEACE BE UPON YOU WHEN

YOU GO."

CHADMAN BELIEVES THEY WERE

ALSO FARMERS.

THE COMPOUND INCLUDED

LIVING QUARTERS, STABLES,

AND AN OLIVE OIL PRESS.

HE SAYS THOSE WOULD NOT

HAVE BEEN BUILT WITHOUT

THE HELP OF THE CHURCH.

THE MAIN THING OF THIS

MONASTERY IS TO TAKE CARE

OF THE LOWER AREA.

Chris: ARCHEOLOGISTS

ALSO UNCOVERED AN EVEN

OLDER STRUCTURE NEARBY, A

2,700-YEAR-OLD FARM HOUSE.

THIS AREA, FROM THE

BEGINNING, WAS USED FOR

FARMING AND FOR

AGRICULTURE.

Chris: SOMETIMES

ARCHEOLOGISTS MUST M MOVE

THE ANTIQUITIES, AND THEY

OFTEN REBURY THEM, BUT

THESE ARE SLATED TO BECOME

PART OF A PARK.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT

THIS SITE, WE'RE NOT GOING

TO DESTROY IT.

WE WILL PLAN TO KEEP IT

AND LEAVE IT LIKE A GREEN

AREA.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: GLAD TO KNOW

IT WILL BE RESERVED.

STAY WITH US.

THERE IS MORE OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH" COMING UP

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Efrem: AND IT IS TIME

THANKFUL, AND AS LONG AS

YOU HAVE LIFE, THERE ARE

SO MANY THINGS TO BE

GRATEFUL FOR ON THIS DAY.

I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN ME IN

THIS PRAYER OF GRATITUDE.
