Chris: THIS WEEK ON

"JERUSALEM DATELINE,"

ISLAMIC TERROR HITS THE

HEART OF LONDON.

WE'LL HAVE ANALYSIS AND

REACTION FROM ISRAEL.

> PLUS, JOEL C.

ROSENBERG DISCUSSES THIS

LATEST BOOK AND WHAT

ISLAMIC TERROR THET TENSE

THTHREATENSTHE U.S. TOO.

PLUS...

WE NEED TO REREPRESENT

ISRAEL THROUGH A FRESH

LENS, IN A NEW WAY.

Chris: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO THIS EDITION OF

"JERUSALEM DATELINE."

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL, COMING

TO YOU FROM JERUSALEM'S

OPEN AIR MARKETS.

IN THE NEWS THIS WEEK,

LONDONERS WERE HORRIFIED

AND SHOCKED AT THE TERROR

ATTACKS, AND ISRAELI

OFFICIALS SAID THEY TOOK

WITH ENGLAND, AND ONE

OFFICIAL SAID TERROR IS

TERROR WHEREVER IT HAPPENS

AND WE MUST FIGHT IT

RELENTLESSLY.

HERE TO TALK MORE ABOUT

THIS IS JULIE STAAL, ABOUT

WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE IN

ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST

AND WHAT HAPPENED IN

LONDON.

Chris: JULIE, THIS IS

SOMETHING THAT ISRAELIS

ARE ALL-TOO FAMILIAR WITH

IT.

Julie: WHAT STARTS IN

ISRAEL THEN ENDS UP GOING

TO OTHER PLACES.

I KNOW THE FIRS FIRST TIME THAT

HAPPENED HERE IN 2008,

WHEN NOT FROM HERE A

BULLDOZER DRIVER RAMMED

INTO A BUNCH OF CARS AND

INJURED MANY, MANY PEOPLE

BEFORE HE WAS STOPPED.

AND EVEN JUST IN JANUARY,

WE HAD ANOTHER ONE OF

THOSE ATTACKS NOT FAR FROM

WHERE I LIVE, ACTUALLY.

A TRUCK DRIVER DROVE UP

OVER A BUNCH OF SHOULDERS

AND KILLED FOUR SHOULDERS.

Chris: AND THE SAME

TWO WEAPONS USED IN LONDON

HAVE BEEN USED HERE, NOT

ONLY CARS OR VEHICLES OR A

BACKHOE, BUT KNIVES.

Julie: IT IS SO

SIMPLE FOR THEM.

ALL YOU NEED IS A DRIVER'S

LICENSE AND A VEHICLE.

AND YOU DON'T EVEN NEED A

DRIVER'S LICENSE.

YOU JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW

TO MAKE THE CAR GO.

YOU CAN DRIVE OVER PEOPLE

WHEREVER THEY ARE.

IT IS QUITE A CONVENIENT

WEAPON FOR THEM.

Chris: AND I KNOW THE

ISRAELI COMPLEX HAS BEEN

IN THE NEWS.

I KNOW YOU WENT TO A PRESS

CONFERENCE WITH JABRIL

JABUB, WHICH SOME PEOPLE

ARE SAID TO BE THE NEXT

ONE IN LINE OF PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY.

AND WHAT DID HE HAVE TO

SAY?

HE WAS RAILING AGAINST

ANYTHING AND EVERYONE.

PALESTINIANS ARE

COMPLETELY INNOCENT, AND

ISRAEL MADE THEM DO IT.

BUT THEY DID SEEM TO BE

ENCOURAGED ABOUT PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

WITH TRUMP -- TRUMP,

AND NO ONE ELSE -- AND,

SECOND, I WANT TO END THE

SUFFERING AND I SEE YOU AS

MY EQUAL.

Chris: IT IS AN

INTERESTING SITUATION

RIGHT NOW.

SOME PEOPLE ARE OPTMISTIC,

AND SOME PEOPLE SAY THIS

IS THE SAME

ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN

CONFLICT.

AND IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE

IT IS GOING TO GO

ANYWHERE.

Julie: IT DOESN'T

SEEM LIKE IT HAS THE

POSSIBILITY TO MOVE.

ALL OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

GOODWILL, MAYBE HE CAN

MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN;

MAYBE NOT.

I THINK FOR A LONG TIME

BOTH SIDES HAVE JUST KIND

OF BEEN KEEPING THIS WHOLE

SUPPOSED PROCESS GOING

BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT IT

REALLY CAN'T END ANYWHERE.

MAYBE I'LL BE WRONG, BUT

IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE IT IS

GOING TO GO ANYWHERE ANY

TIME SUE SOON.

Chris: THANKS, JULIE.

> THE LONDON TERROR

ATTACK ONCE AGAIN PUT

ISLAMIC TERROR IN THE

HEADLINES.

ISLAMIC TERROR IS THE

THEME IN A NEW BOOK BY

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR JOEL

C. ROSENBERG, AND IT IS

CALLED "WITHOUT WARNING."

AND WENDY GRIFFITH GOT

WITH ROSENBERG TO TALK

ABOUT HIS LATEST WORK AND

THE DANGERS OF ISLAMIC

TERROR.

Wendy: JOEL, YOU'RE

RECENT BOOK, "WITHOUT

WARNING," IS ABOUT AN ISIS

ATTACK ON OUR HOMELAND, ON

THE CAPITAL, DURING THE

PRESIDENT'S STATE OF THE

UNION ADDRESS.

IS SOMETHING LIKE THIS

POSSIBLE?

AGAIN, THIS IS A NOVEL,

IT IS FICTION.

BUT I AM CONCERNED THAT IT

IS POSSIBLE.

NOT JUST AN ATTACK AGAINST

THE CAPITAL, WHICH, OF

COURSE, IS A SYMBOL OF OUR

GOVERNMENT, AND al-QAEDA

TRIED TO ATTACK IT ON

9/11.

BUT THE HEROS ON FLIGHT 93

DOWNED THAT PLANE IN

PENNSYLVANIA, AND THE

PLANE DIDN'T REACH

WASHINGTON.

BUT THERE IS NO QUESTION

THAT ISIS AND OTHER

RADICAL ISLAMIC TERROR

GROUPS WANT TO ATTACK THE

CAPITAL.

BUT, EVEN MORE, WHAT IF

THEY START ATTACKING

SCHOOL BUSES IN THE

MIDWEST AND MALLS IN THE

SOUTH?

MUCH SOFTER TARGETS COULD

BE HIT AND COULD CAUSE

TREMENDOUS FEAR.

WE REALLY HAVEN'T HAD

THESE TYPES OF MAJOR

ATTACKS SINCE 9/11.

WE'VE HAD ORLANDO AND SAN

BERNARDINO, AND WE HAVE

HAD ISIS-INSPIRED ATTACKS

IN THE COUNTRY, AND WE

KNOW HOW MUCH THOSE SCARE

US.

BUT IF IT WAS WIDESPREAD,

IN ONE OR TWO DAYS, THIS

IS REALISTIC.

AND WE'VE GOT A PRESIDENT

NOW WHO WANTS TO PROTECT

US.

I'M NOT SAYING THAT THE

PREVIOUS PRESIDENT DIDN'T.

Wendy: WE NEED TO

CALL IT WHAT IT IS.

YEAH.

HE CALLS IT RADICAL

ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

AND HE IS TRYING TO

INCREASE THE VETTING OF

THOSE WHO WANT TO COME

INTO OUR COUNTRY, AND

INCREASE BORDER SECURITY,

AND THEN TAKE THE WAR TO

ISIS.

Wendy: THE PRESIDENT

HAS TAKEN QUITE A BIT OF

FLACK, AND THE FIRST JUDGE

BOUND IT -- PIERS

THE FIRST ROLL-OUT OF

THAT TRAVEL RESTRICTION

WAS TERRIBLE.

WE WANT MORE GORSUCH

ROLL-OUT.

Wendy: WHAT DO YOU

THINK ABOUT IT NOW?

I THINK IT IS MUCH

IMPROVED.

I STILL ASK, WHY IS

AFGHANISTAN NOT ON THIS

LIST?

WHY IS GAZA NOT ON THE

LIST?

THERE ARE PLACES THAT ARE

PUTTING POTENTIAL

TERRORIST THREATS THAT YOU

SHOULD BE VETTING BETTER.

BUT THEY DID MAKE SOME

MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS.

Wendy: STILL,

CHRISTIANS IN IRAQ AND

SYRIA ARE SUFFERING UNDER

ISIS, AS YOU KNOW, AND THE

U.S. HAS DECLARED IT A

GENOCIDE.

WHAT MORE CAN WE DO TO

HELP PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS

THERE?

EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO

CONGRESS PASSED, BY 393 TO

0, THE RESOLUTION

INTRODUCED BY CONGRESSMAN

JEFF FORTENBERRY,

DECLARING THIS EFFORT BY

ISIS TO BE GENOCIDE.

A FEW DAYS LATER,

SECRETARY JOHN KERRY

CONCEDED, YES, THIS IS

OFFICIALLY GENOCIDE.

MEANING ISIS IS TRYING TO

ANNIHILATE CHRISTIANS,

YAZIDIS AND SHI'A MUSLIMS.

SO I THINK THIS PRESIDENT

IS SERIOUS ABOUT IT.

AND AS CHRISTIANS, WE NEED

TO BE USING NON-GOVERNMENT

ORGANIZATIONS, LIKE OUR

OWN, "THE JOSHUA FUND,"

THAT HELP PROVIDE RELIEF

TO RERCHES.

REFUGEES.

Wendy: BECAUSE MANY

ARE GOING ON YEARS LIVING

IN THE REFUGEE CAMPS.

AND YOU'VE GOT

OTHERS -- FRANKLIN GRAHAM

IS DOING IT.

WE SHOULD BE DOING IT.

ISIS IS AN EVIL, WICKED,

DEMONIC SYSTEM.

THEY ARE CRUCIFYING,

BEHEADING, RAPING,

ENSLAVING, FORCIBLY

CONVERTING PEOPLE TO

ISLAM.

IT REQUIRES GLOBAL

COOPERATION TO FIGHT IT,

BUT, LIKEWISE, CHRISTIANS

NEED TO STEP IN AND SHOW

COMPASSION TO THOSE WHO

ARE SUFFERING SO MUCH,

WHETHER THEY'RE MUSLIMS OR

FELLOW CHRISTIANS.

Chris: COMING UP,

ISRAEL IS SURROUNDED BY

ENEMIES, BUT IT IS ONE OF

THE HAPPIEST COUNTRIES IN

THE WORLD.

WE'LL ASK ISRAELIS WHY.

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

FOR DECADES, THE TERM

"GENERATION GAP," HAS BEEN

USED TO DEFINE HOW YOUNGER

PEOPLE SEE THE WORLD AS

OPPOSED TO THEIR PARENTS.

THOSE DIFFERENCES INCLUDE

CULTURE, POLITICS,

RELATIONSHIPS, AND AS WE

ALSO FOUND OUT, IT APPLIES

TO ISRAEL.

THAT'S WHY ONE MINISTRY IS

INTRODUCING MILLENNIAL

PASTORS TO THE LAND OF THE

BIBLE.

IN THEIR FIRST VISIT TO

ISRAEL, THESE YOUNG

PASTORS WILL GET A SPECIAL

LOOK AT THE COUNTRY AND

ITS HISTORY.

WE NEED TO REPRESENT

ISRAEL IN A FRESH LENS AND

TO CULTIVATE THAT HEART.

Chris: ROBERT THURS

BELIEVES ISRAEL IS TOO

OFTEN PORTRAYED AS A

VILLAIN BY MEDIA, THE

U.N., AND MOVEMENTS LIKE

B.D.S., WHICH CALLS FOR

BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT, AND

SANCTIONS AGAINST THE

STATE.

TOO OFTEN, IN A NARROW

O, FIRST-CHANCE LOOK,

ISRAEL CAN BE PAINTED AS

THE GOLIATH AND THE

PALESTINIANS AS THE DAVID.

EXO ISO IT IS IMPORTANT TO COME

HERE AND SEE THE

REALITIES.

SO MANY PEOPLE IN MY

GENERATION ARE, LIKE, I

DON'T KNOW WHAT TO BELIEVE

ANYMORE.

I'M GOING TO HAVE TO SEE

IT IN ORDER TO REALLY

BELIEVE IT.

SO TO COME HERE, YOU SEE

THE TRUTH, AND YOU CONNECT

WITH PEOPLE AND YOU TALK

WITH PEOPLE, AND YOU

REALLY DO FIND OUT WHAT IS

ACTUALLY GOING ON HERE.

Chris: SOME FELT THAT

AS MILLENNIALS, MOTIVATED

BY SOCIAL JUSTICE, THEY

NEEDED TO HEAR THE JEWISH

SIDE OF THE

ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN

CONFLICT.

TAKING THE JOURNEY OF

THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND

BEING ABLE TO WALK THAT

WITH THEM, AND THEN TO

SAY, I STAND WITH ISRAEL.

AFTER SEEING THEIR

JOURNEY, THERE IS NO OTHER

SIDE TO STAND ON.

Chris: THIS RABBI,

ONE OF AMERICA'S LEADING

YOUNG RABBIS, JOINED THIS

GROUP OF EVANGELICAL

PASTORS.

I THINK THAT THEY GET

IT.

AND I THINK THAT THE MORE

THE JEWS REALIZE THAT THEY

HAVE BROTHERS AND FRIENDS

IN THE EVANGELICAL WORLD,

AND PARTICULARLY WITH THE

EMERGING GENERATION OF

MILLENNIALS, I THINK THE

GREATER THE CHANCE IS FOR

THE SUCCESS OF THE STATE

OF ISRAEL AND FOR THE

COMING OF THE MESSIAH.

Chris: MANY FELT IT

WAS TIME TO MAKE THE TRIP

TO ISRAEL.

I WOULD CHALLENGE

EVERYONE TO DO WHATEVER IT

IS, WHATEVER SACRIFICE

THEY HAVE TO MAKE,

WHATEVER THEY HAVE TO SET

ASIDE, TO MAKE THIS TRIP.

BECAUSE IT IS

LIFE-CHANGING.

FOR ME IT HAS

COMPLETELY OPENED UP MY

EYES TO GOD'S PLAN FOR

THIS LAND, GOD'S PLAN FOR

THE JEWISH PEOPLE, GOD'S

PLAN FOR CHRISTIANS AND

THIS PARTNERSHIP THAT HAS

STARTED TO COME TOGETHER.

IT IS HISTORY IN THE

MAKING.

Chris: SEEING ISRAEL

FIRSTHAND MAY HAVE SHOWN

THOSE PASTORS THAT DESPITE

THE FACT THAT ISRAEL IS

SURROUNDED BY ENEMIES THAT

WANT TO DESTROY THE JEWISH

FAITH, IT IS ONE OF THE

HAPPIEST COUNTRIES IN THE

WORLD.

WORLD.

IT RANKED 11th AFTER 155

COUNTRIES.

THE UNITED STATES CAME IN

14th.

WE ASKED ISRAELIS IF

THEY'RE HAPPY AND WHY THAT

IS TRUE?

Julie: THE U.N. HAS A

REPORT THAT MEASURES HOUT

HAPPY PEOPLE ARE AROUND

THE WORLD, AND THEY SAY

ISRAEL IS NUMBER 11 OUT OF

155 COUNTRIES.

WE ARE MUCH HAPPIER

THAN THAT.

I THINK WE'RE NUMBER

ONE.

Julie: WHY DO YOU

THINK ISRAEL IS SO HAPPY?

YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY

ENEMIES, THERE IS A LACK

OF WATER -- WHY DO YOU

THINK ISRAEL IS HAPPY?

BECAUSE GOD LOVES US.

HE LOVES EVERYONE, BUT HE

LOVES US.

I THINK THE THINGS THAT

ARE REALLY IMPORTANT TO

PEOPLE HERE IN ISRAEL,

THEY'RE NOT SORT OF

SUPERFICIAL THINGS.

THEY ARE DEEPER THINGS

LIKE FAMILY AND

CONNECTIONS AND FAMILY AND

COMMUNITY.

WE ARE OPTMISTIC

PEOPLE.

AND WE HAVE WONDERFUL

WEATHER AND WONDERFUL

PEOPLE.

YES.

Julie: WHY?

BECAUSE JEWS ARE THE

LAMBS.

BECAUSE EVERYBODY HELP

EACH OTHER AND GIVE UP

THEMSELVES TO THE

COMMUNITY AND TO HELP EACH

OTHER.

WE HAVE A LOT OF

PROBLEMS, THAT'S RIGHT,

BUT IT GIVES YOU A

PERSPECTIVE OF WHAT'S

REALLY IMPORTANT.

I DON'T KNOW.

WE'RE JUST SO MUCH --

IT IS KIND OF RARE FOR A

COUNTRY TO BE LIKE THIS

AFTER 70 YEARS.

Julie: DO YOU THINK

GOD HAS ANYTHING TO DO

WITH IT?

I GUESS, YES.

WHEN YOU WATCH THE

MEDIA AND YOU WATCH THE

NEWS, SOMETIMES YOU FEEL

LIKE IT IS A TERRIBLE

PLACE, ALL OF THE THINGS

THAT THE U.N. SOMETIMES

TELLS ABOUT ISRAEL.

BUT AS A PERSON WHO KNOWS,

ALL THOSE ARE NOT TRUE.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT I KNOW

THAT ISRAEL IS ONE OF THE

BEST PLACES TO LIVE IN.

Julie: WHY ARE YOU

HAPPY?

BECAUSE I HAVE A PLACE

THAT I CAN CALL MY HOME.

I'M HERE FROM ENGLAND,

ABOUT SEVEN YEARS AGO, AND

I'VE NEVER BEEN HAPPIER.

Julie: IT IS MY

IT IS MY BIRTHDAY.

Julie: HAPPY

BIRTHDAY.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN SAID, I

RECKON PEOPLE ARE AS HAPPY

AS THEY CHOOSE TO BE.

I CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY.

THE WEATHER IS PERFECT.

THE ATMOSPHERE IS PERFECT.

I HAVE A GOOD JOB.

I WAS A TEACHER, A

MATHEMATIC TEACHER, AND

EVERYTHING IS OKAY.

YES, VERY HAPPY.

Chris: THE SITE MANY

BELIEVE TO BE THE PLACE

JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD

GETS A FACELIFT.

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

AS I SAID, WE'RE COMING TO

YOU FROM JERUSALEM'S OPEN

AIR MARKETS, AND MANY

PEOPLE NOW ARE DOING THEIR

SHOPPING FOR SHABAB.

ONE OF THE HOLIEST SITES

HERE, THE CHURCH HOLY

SEPULCHRE, GOT A

MUCH-NEEDED FACELIFT.

AND IT IS WHERE MANY

BELIEVE JESUS ROSE FROM

THE DEAD.

WHAT IS CALLED THE LITTLE

HOUSE, RESTORERS HAVE

WORKED FOR NEARLY A YEAR.

THIS IS AN HISTORIC

MOMENT.

Chris: THIS PROFESSOR

OVERSAW THE PROJECT.

IT WAS A GREAT

CHALLENGE FOR US.

AND IT IS STILL A

CHALLENGE.

WE HAD TO STRUCTURALLY

ASSURE THE STABILITY OF

THE MONUMENT.

Chris: THE LAST

RESTORATION TOOK PLACE

MORE THAN 100 YEARS AGO,

AND IT WASN'T UNTIL THEY

BEGAN THE WORK THAT THEY

REALIZED HOW DANGEROUS THE

BUILDING WAS.

IN FACT, IT REALLY WAS

ON THE VIRGE OF COLLAPSE.

IT WAS ONLY BEING HELD IN

PLACE BY THE SCAFFOLDING.

AND THE SCAFFOLDING HAD

BEEN THERE FOR OVER 50

YEARS.

Chris: THE BRITISH

BUILT THAT SCAFFOLDING IN

1947.

THIS TIME THE TEAM WENT

FURTHER, BY STRENGTHENING

THE BUILDING AND REMOVING

THE SCAFFOLDING.

SO THIS IS A COMPLETE

TRANSFORMATION OF THE

MONUMENT, SO IT IS NOW

WHAT IT WAS INTENDED TO BE

FOR THE PEOPLE OF TODAY.

Chris: CBN NEWS GOT A

RARE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE

OUR AUDIENCE INSIDE THEED THE

EDICUL.

BENEATH THIS SLAB IS

WHERE THEY BELIEVE JESUS

CHRIST WAS BURIED AND THEN

ROSE FROM THE DEAD.

IT IS SPECIAL, REALLY

SOMETHING SPECIAL.

NOT BECAUSE OF ITSELF, BUT

BECAUSE OF THE FAITH WE

HAVE IN JESUS, THAT HE

DIED, HE WAS BURIED IN

THIS TOMB, AND HE WAS

RESURRECTED.

Chris: ACCORDING TO

MANY CHRISTIAN PILGRIMS,

THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE

WHERE JESUS WAS IS

LIFE-CHANGING.

I COULD NOT ENVISION IT

BEING THIS WONDERFUL, TO

ACTUALLY HAVE THE FEELING

THAT JESUS WAS HERE.

IT IS JUST VERY MOVING.

VERY, VERY SPECIAL, AND

I'M SHARING IT WITH MY

DAD.

I CAN'T DESCRIBE IT.

Chris: UNDER THE

EDICUL, HIS TEAM

DISCOVERED THE GROUND TO

BE SO UNSTABLE IT COULD

COLLAPSE.

NOW THEY HOPE FURTHER

RESTORATION WILL MAKE THE

SITE SAFE FOR YEARS TO

COME.

THE WORK ON THE CHURCH IS

JUST ONE MORE EXAMPLE OF

HOW THE MODERN AND ANCIENT

INTERSECT HERE IN ISRAEL.

ANOTHER STORY IS THAT EACH

YEAR ISRAELI ARCHEOLOGISTS

DIG UP THOUSANDS OF

ARTIFACTS, BUT WHERE DO

THEY GO FOR SCIENTISTS TO

STUDY THEM.

HERE IS WHAT I FIND OUT.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE

AT THE END OF THE DAY, ALL

OF OUR ARCHEOLOGICAL

FINDINGS IN THE COUNTRY

COME TO REST.

Chris: CBN NEWS GOT A

RARE LOOK AT JUST A PART

OF MANY ARTIFACTS, SUCH AS

LARGE WATER JUGS, LIKE THE

ONES FILLED WITH WATER

THAT JESUS TURNED INTO

WINE.

WE CAN SEE HERE THE

LIFE OF JESUS.

COMBINING SMALL VESSELS,

SMALL VESSELS, DIFFERENT

VESSELS, AND CERAMICS.

EVERY YEAR THERE ARE

SOMETHING LIKE 30,000 TO

40,000 NEW ARTIFACTS.

Chris: THIS

ARCHEOLOGIST SAYS THOSE

SCAIFEXCAVATIONS OVER THE LAST

20 TO 30 YEARS HAVE

GREATLY INCREASED OUR

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT LIFE

DURING THE TIME OF CHRIST.

WE CAN RECONSTRUCT

TODAY WHAT HAPPENED TO AN

AVERAGE PERSON DURING THE

TIME OF CHRIST, FROM THE

MINUTE OF HIS BIRTH UNTIL

HIS BURIAL.

Chris: ONE RARE FIND

IS THIS STONE FROM A

SYNAGOGUE AT MAGDALA, HOME

TO MARY MAGDALENE, WHERE

JESUS COULD HAVE PREACHED.

AND THEY FOUND NINE COINS,

WHERE WORKERS WERE

WIDENING THE MAIN ROAD

BETWEEN JERUSALEM AND TEL

AVIV.

THIS WILL SHOW ONE OF

THE MAJOR ASPECTS OF THE

CHRISTIAN PILGRIMAGE TO

THE HOLY LAND.

WHERE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE WERE COMING FROM

ALL OVER THE WORLD, ALL OF

THEM COMING TO FOLLOW THE

FOOTSTEPS OF CHRIST, USING

THE ROAD SYSTEM CLIMBING

TO JERUSALEM.

Chris: ALTHOUGH

ARCHEOLOGISTS SAY THEIR

WORD PROVES THE BIBLE,

THEY MAINTAIN IT PROVES

PROOF OF LIFE DURING THE

BIBLICAL TIMES.

IT REINFORCES THE

DESCRIPTIONS IN THE BIBLE,

PROVIDING PHYSICAL

EVIDENCE.

Chris: AND YOU CAN

SOON GO ONLINE TO SEE

THESE ARTIFACTS TELL THE

STORY OF THE LAND OF THE

BIBLE.

> COMING UP, WHAT DO

ALMONDS AND GOD'S WORD

HAVE IN COMMON?

FIND OUT WHEN WE COME

AS YOU CAN SEE HERE IN THE

MARKET, THEY HAVE BREAD,

FRUITS, AND HERE WE HAVE

AN ASSORTMENT OF NUTS.

EVERY WEEK ON OUR

Facebook PAGE, WE SHARE

A NEW HEBREW WORD.

TAKE A LOOK AT THIS

EXAMPLE FROM OUR SOCIAL

MEDIA PRODUCER, CINDY,

ABOUT THE CONNECTION

BETWEEN ALMONDS AND GOD'S

WORD.

CAN I HAVE SOME ALMONDS

HERE.

WELCOME TO HEBREW WORD

WEDNESDAY.

TODAY THE WORD IS SHAQE,

WHICH IS ALMOND IN HEBREW.

I'M STANDING NEXT TO AN

ALMOND TREE AND THAT'S

BECAUSE ALMOND TREES ARE

THE FIRST TREES THAT

BLOOMED -- OR ONE OF THE

FIRST TREES THAT BLOOM

AFTER THE WINTER.

IT IS A SIGN THAT SPRING

IS COMING.

WE READ ABOUT THE ALMOND

IN THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH.

JEREMIAH, WHAT DOEE

I S SEE ABRANCH

ANLMO TREE.

AN THEN THE L SAID TO ME, YOU HAVE SEEN WELL,

FOR I WATCHG OVER TO

PERFORM MY WORD.

NO WHAT I THE

NNECON BETWEEN THOSE

TWOHINGS? WELL, THE ALMOND THAT

JEREMIAH TALKED ABOUT

RELATED TO THE WORD

SHOULSHOULDSHOQUE, WHICH MES "WATCH ER."

SO WNOW THE SPRING IS COMING.

AN LI GOD

FULFILLED S WORD, WHEN

IT IS WINTER AND WE THINK

SPRING WILL NEVER COME,

GOD IS WATCHING OVER HIS

WORD TO PERFORM IT.

THAT'S TODAY'S HEBREW WORD

FOR WEDNESDAY.

Chris: SO PLEASE

CHECK IT OUT ON OUR

Facebook PAGE.

LIKE US AND SHARE IT WITH

YOUR FRIENDS.

THAT'S IT FOR THIS

EDITION.

I'VE GOT MY ALMONDS.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

REMEMBER YOU CAN FOLLOW US

THROUGHOUT THE WEEK ON

Facebook, TWITTER, AND

INSTAGRAM.

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL, AND
