  • - ERICK STAKELBECK: THIS WEEK ON THE WATCHMAN,
  • 00:00:01.280 --> 00:00:03.040
  • WELCOME TO THE ANCIENT RUINS OF TEL BE'ER SHEBA.
  • 00:00:03.060 --> 00:00:06.250
  • THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE ABRAHAM PITCHED HIS TENTS
  • 00:00:06.270 --> 00:00:10.050
  • AFTER GOD CALLED HIM TO THE LAND OF ISRAEL
  • 00:00:10.070 --> 00:00:12.200
  • TO BECOME THE FATHER OF MANY NATIONS.
  • 00:00:12.220 --> 00:00:15.170
  • THE STORY OF ABRAHAM, THE STORY OF ISAAC, OF JACOB,
  • 00:00:15.190 --> 00:00:18.220
  • ALL WENT DOWN RIGHT HERE WHERE I'M STANDING
  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:21.080
  • NEARLY 4.000 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:00:21.100 --> 00:00:23.280
  • AND TODAY, OUR GOOD FRIEND ELLIOT CHODOFF IS BACK
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:26.290
  • TO TELL US WHY THE STORY OF TEL BE'ER SHEBA,
  • 00:00:27.010 --> 00:00:29.250
  • OF ABRAHAM, STILL MATTERS TODAY FOR EVERY BELIEVER.
  • 00:00:29.270 --> 00:00:34.180
  • GET THE INSIDE STORY OF BE'ER SHEBA, OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:00:34.200 --> 00:00:37.190
  • FROM THE VERY PLACE WHERE IT ALL WENT DOWN,
  • 00:00:37.210 --> 00:00:40.130
  • ONLY RIGHT HERE ON THE WATCHMAN.
  • 00:00:40.150 --> 00:00:43.090
  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]
  • 00:00:43.110 --> 00:00:50.110
  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]
  • 00:00:50.130 --> 00:01:04.000
  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]
  • 00:01:04.000 --> 00:01:17.000
  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]
  • 00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:25.190
  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]
  • 00:01:25.190 --> 00:01:33.040
  • WELL, ELLIOT, IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU BACK HERE
  • 00:01:33.060 --> 00:01:35.040
  • WITH US ON THE WATCHMAN SHOW.
  • 00:01:35.060 --> 00:01:36.200
  • - IT'S GREAT TO BE HERE.
  • 00:01:36.220 --> 00:01:38.010
  • - MAN, AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE SPOT TO BE WITH YOU,
  • 00:01:38.030 --> 00:01:41.050
  • TEL BE'ER SHEBA.
  • 00:01:41.070 --> 00:01:43.120
  • BE'ER SHEBA, IT READS ON THE PAGE
  • 00:01:43.140 --> 00:01:46.150
  • BUT IT'S PRONOUNCED BE'ER SHEVA, HERE IN ISRAEL.
  • 00:01:46.170 --> 00:01:49.050
  • A PLACE OF INCREDIBLE BIBLICAL SIGNIFICANCE.
  • 00:01:49.070 --> 00:01:52.280
  • TELL US WHY?
  • 00:01:53.000 --> 00:01:54.100
  • - WELL, THIS IS WHERE IT ALL BEGINS.
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:55.200
  • THIS IS WHERE ABRAHAM COMES FROM OR MESOPOTAMIA,
  • 00:01:55.220 --> 00:02:00.290
  • WHEN GOD COMES TO HIM AND SAYS,
  • 00:02:01.010 --> 00:02:03.010
  • "GET UP, GO!
  • 00:02:03.030 --> 00:02:04.040
  • "LEAVE YOUR HOMELAND, LEAVE YOUR LAND,
  • 00:02:04.060 --> 00:02:05.230
  • "LEAVE YOUR FATHERS HOUSE,
  • 00:02:05.250 --> 00:02:07.140
  • "AND GO TO THE LAND WHERE I WILL SHOW YOU."
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.150
  • AND BETWEEN US, I THINK IF YOU TOLD HIM HE WAS COMING HERE,
  • 00:02:10.170 --> 00:02:12.140
  • HE MIGHT NOT HAVE COME.
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:13.290
  • - AND WHY IS THAT? - I'M JOKING.
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:15.280
  • BUT HE'S LEAVING THE CENTER OF URBAN CIVILIZATION,
  • 00:02:16.000 --> 00:02:20.220
  • WHERE HE'S LIVED HIS ENTIRE LIFE.
  • 00:02:20.240 --> 00:02:22.080
  • - ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIA.
  • 00:02:22.100 --> 00:02:23.200
  • - ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIA, BUT URBAN ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIA,
  • 00:02:23.220 --> 00:02:25.210
  • REMEMBER, HE'S NOT LIVING OFF IN THE FARM COUNTRY SOMEWHERE,
  • 00:02:25.230 --> 00:02:28.110
  • HE'S LIVING IN A MAJOR CITY.
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:30.030
  • - AND HE WAS PROSPEROUS.
  • 00:02:30.050 --> 00:02:31.110
  • - AND PROSPEROUS, AND HE'S NOT A YOUNG MAN.
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:34.220
  • AND HE COMES OUT HERE TO THE DESERT,
  • 00:02:34.240 --> 00:02:38.100
  • TO THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.
  • 00:02:38.120 --> 00:02:41.110
  • REMEMBER THAT WHEN ABRAHAM COMES HERE
  • 00:02:41.130 --> 00:02:42.240
  • THERE IS NO BE'ER SHEBA.
  • 00:02:42.260 --> 00:02:44.270
  • BE'ER SHEBA IS NAMED BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS WHILE HE'S HERE.
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:48.090
  • HE'S IN THE OPEN DESERT, AND HE BECOMES A SHEPHERD.
  • 00:02:48.110 --> 00:02:51.110
  • HE'S NOW GRAZING, CHANGE OF PROFESSION.
  • 00:02:51.130 --> 00:02:54.160
  • - I MEAN, A PROFESSIONAL GUY,
  • 00:02:54.180 --> 00:02:57.060
  • PROSPEROUS THERE IN A CENTER OF URBAN CIVILIZATION.
  • 00:02:57.080 --> 00:03:00.050
  • AND HE COMES TO LITERALLY WHAT WAS THEN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:01.240
  • OF NOWHERE, THE NEGEV DESERT.
  • 00:03:01.260 --> 00:03:03.160
  • - THE NEGEV DESERT.
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:04.280
  • WE'RE IN THE NORTHERN NEGEV,
  • 00:03:05.000 --> 00:03:06.060
  • THE MIDDLE OF THE NORTHERN NEGEV.
  • 00:03:06.080 --> 00:03:07.210
  • THE NEGEV IS ESSENTIALLY AN INVERTED TRIANGLE,
  • 00:03:07.230 --> 00:03:10.050
  • LONG TRIANGLE.
  • 00:03:10.070 --> 00:03:11.060
  • SO WE'RE AT THE UPPER PART OF IT.
  • 00:03:11.080 --> 00:03:12.250
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. WE HAVE THE SINAI DESERT OFF TO OUR
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:16.060
  • WEST, THE ARABIAN DESERT TO THE EAST AND TO THE SOUTH.
  • 00:03:16.080 --> 00:03:19.040
  • DESERT, A LOT OF DESERT HERE.
  • 00:03:19.060 --> 00:03:21.140
  • HEBRON, MAYBE 25 MILES NORTH OF HERE,
  • 00:03:21.160 --> 00:03:24.260
  • WHICH IN THOSE DAYS IS TWO, THREE DAYS TRAVEL ON FOOT,
  • 00:03:24.280 --> 00:03:29.030
  • FOOT, ANIMAL WHATEVER.
  • 00:03:29.050 --> 00:03:30.110
  • I MEAN, YOU COULD PROBABLY GALLOP IN A HORSE
  • 00:03:30.130 --> 00:03:32.040
  • BUT IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT MOVING, IT'S A DISTANCE.
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:37.050
  • AND HE COMES HERE AND HE GRAZES AND HERE IS REALLY WHERE
  • 00:03:37.070 --> 00:03:40.210
  • HE ESTABLISHES HIMSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME
  • 00:03:40.230 --> 00:03:43.280
  • IN THE LAND THAT WILL BE PROMISED TO HIM.
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:46.030
  • - WOW, THE PATRIARCH ELLIOT,
  • 00:03:46.050 --> 00:03:48.030
  • IT ALL BE BEGAN HERE WITH ABRAHAM.
  • 00:03:48.050 --> 00:03:50.140
  • I MEAN, INCREDIBLE.
  • 00:03:50.160 --> 00:03:52.020
  • AND YOU AND I WERE TALKING OFF CAMERA A BIT
  • 00:03:52.040 --> 00:03:54.010
  • ABOUT THAT LEAP OF FAITH THAT HE TOOK.
  • 00:03:54.030 --> 00:03:58.060
  • HE WAS AN OLDER MAN AS YOU SAID.
  • 00:03:58.080 --> 00:03:59.170
  • - HE WAS AN OLDER MAN.
  • 00:03:59.190 --> 00:04:00.260
  • AGAIN, JOKING ASIDE, GOD SAYS, "LEAVE IT ALL."
  • 00:04:00.280 --> 00:04:03.230
  • GIVE UP EVERYTHING YOU KNOW, GIVE UP ALL YOUR SECURITY,
  • 00:04:03.250 --> 00:04:07.100
  • FINANCIAL, PHYSICAL AND MENTAL KNOWING WHERE YOU ARE,
  • 00:04:07.120 --> 00:04:10.280
  • AND TAKE THAT LEAP, GO TO WHERE I SHOW YOU.
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:15.090
  • AND HE BRINGS HIM HERE.
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:17.030
  • AND YOU'VE GOT TO IMAGINE THAT ABRAHAM COMES HERE
  • 00:04:17.050 --> 00:04:19.200
  • WITH THAT FAITH AND SAYS HERE?
  • 00:04:19.220 --> 00:04:22.290
  • AND IT'S YES, HERE.
  • 00:04:23.010 --> 00:04:24.100
  • HERE'S WHERE IT BEGINS.
  • 00:04:24.120 --> 00:04:25.180
  • - AND THIS AREA TEL BE'ER SHEBA'S MENTIONED
  • 00:04:25.200 --> 00:04:29.110
  • 33 TIMES IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:04:29.130 --> 00:04:31.170
  • - YES.
  • 00:04:31.190 --> 00:04:32.250
  • LATER ON, THIS BECOMES A MAJOR CITY.
  • 00:04:32.270 --> 00:04:37.010
  • THE PROMISE IS THE LAND WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU
  • 00:04:37.030 --> 00:04:39.120
  • FROM DAN TO BE'ER SHEBA.
  • 00:04:39.140 --> 00:04:41.080
  • DAN, ALL THE WAY FAR TO THE NORTH.
  • 00:04:41.100 --> 00:04:43.180
  • IT'S NOT A BORDER, IT'S AN INDICATOR,
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:46.110
  • BUT THIS BECOMES THE SOUTHERN CENTRAL CITY
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:50.040
  • OF THE ISRAELITE KINGDOMS, THE FIRST TEMPLE PERIOD,
  • 00:04:50.060 --> 00:04:53.140
  • SOLOMON BUILT A GATE HERE.
  • 00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:55.230
  • IT'S A FORTIFIED CITY.
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:57.120
  • THIS WAS THE MAJOR CITY THAT MARKED ESSENTIALLY
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:04:59.220
  • THE SOUTHERN END OF INFLUENCE DURING THAT PERIOD OF DAVID,
  • 00:04:59.240 --> 00:05:02.240
  • OF SOLOMON, SOLOMON AND BEYOND.
  • 00:05:02.260 --> 00:05:05.260
  • THIS WAS REALLY THE LAST STOP
  • 00:05:05.280 --> 00:05:08.050
  • FROM HERE YOU REALLY ARE OFF INTO THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:05:08.070 --> 00:05:10.110
  • - WOW, SO THIS WAS THE EXTENT
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:12.000
  • OF THE DAVIDIC DYNASTY IN THAT KINGDOM.
  • 00:05:12.020 --> 00:05:14.020
  • IT'S STRETCHED TO BE'ER SHEBA, THE SOUTHERNMOST POINT.
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:17.030
  • - IN TERMS OF RULE, YES.
  • 00:05:17.060 --> 00:05:18.260
  • NOT IN TERMS OF INFLUENCE BUT RULE.
  • 00:05:18.280 --> 00:05:21.120
  • HERE, THIS SPOT.
  • 00:05:21.140 --> 00:05:23.160
  • OF COURSE, THE MODERN CITY IS BEHIND US. THERE'S--
  • 00:05:23.180 --> 00:05:25.090
  • THIS IS MODERN ISRAEL.
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:26.270
  • THINGS HAVE CHANGED COMPLETELY.
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:28.220
  • - IT'S PRETTY STUNNING BECAUSE WE HAVE THESE ANCIENT RUINS,
  • 00:05:28.240 --> 00:05:31.100
  • THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD FROM THE TIME OF ABRAHAM, ELLIOT,
  • 00:05:31.120 --> 00:05:33.210
  • BUT NOT FAR OVER THE HORIZON A FEW MILES AWAY
  • 00:05:33.230 --> 00:05:36.220
  • IS THE MODERN CITY OF BE'ER SHEBA,
  • 00:05:36.240 --> 00:05:38.170
  • WHICH IS A THRIVING CITY AND IT'S GROWING.
  • 00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:40.100
  • - YES, THE CAPITAL OF THE NEGEV,
  • 00:05:40.120 --> 00:05:43.040
  • HOME OF A UNIVERSITY, MAJOR HOSPITAL, INDUSTRY.
  • 00:05:43.060 --> 00:05:48.020
  • THE MILITARY IS MOVING A GREAT DEAL OF STUFF DOWN HERE NOW
  • 00:05:48.040 --> 00:05:50.190
  • OUT OF THE CENTER OF THE COUNTRY SO.
  • 00:05:50.210 --> 00:05:53.220
  • - WE'RE NOT FAR FROM THE GAZA BORDER EITHER, NOT TOO FAR.
  • 00:05:53.240 --> 00:05:56.000
  • WE'RE NOT FAR AT ALL.
  • 00:05:56.020 --> 00:05:57.200
  • ALSO A NUMBER OF MILES, BE'ER SHEBA GOT HIT BY ROCKETS.
  • 00:05:57.220 --> 00:06:01.140
  • -[ERICK] THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:02.210
  • -[ELLIOT] SO WE'RE IN HAMAS ROCKET RANGE.
  • 00:06:02.230 --> 00:06:03.240
  • -[ERICK] YES, WE ARE.
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:05.120
  • - NOW GAZA, OF COURSE IS THE OLD LAND OF THE PHILISTINES.
  • 00:06:05.140 --> 00:06:07.270
  • SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE.
  • 00:06:07.290 --> 00:06:09.140
  • YOU GOTTA REALIZE LAND OWNERSHIP OUT HERE MEANS SOMETHING
  • 00:06:09.160 --> 00:06:12.220
  • VERY, VERY DIFFERENT, THAN WHAT IT MEANS IN A CITY.
  • 00:06:12.240 --> 00:06:16.160
  • AND WE KNOW THAT FROM HERE,
  • 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:17.290
  • ABRAHAM MOVES UP TO THE HEBRON AREA, WHEN SARAH DIES,
  • 00:06:18.010 --> 00:06:20.230
  • HE BUYS THE FIELD OF EPHRON THE HITTITE,
  • 00:06:20.250 --> 00:06:23.000
  • THE CAVE OF MACHPELAH--
  • 00:06:23.020 --> 00:06:24.150
  • -[ERICK] WHERE HE'S BURIED TODAY, YEAH.
  • 00:06:24.170 --> 00:06:26.000
  • -[ELLIOT] CORRECT. HE, ISAAC, JACOB--
  • 00:06:26.020 --> 00:06:28.120
  • -[ERICK] YES. - THEIR WIVES.
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:30.110
  • THAT'S OWNERSHIP. HE PAYS FOR IT, AND HE BUYS IT.
  • 00:06:30.130 --> 00:06:34.100
  • OUT HERE GRAZING LANDS AREN'T REALLY OWNED IN THOSE DAYS.
  • 00:06:34.120 --> 00:06:39.080
  • AND IT'S MORE YOU GRAZE AND WHILE YOU'RE ON IT, IT'S YOURS
  • 00:06:39.100 --> 00:06:42.030
  • AND THEN YOU MOVE ON AND SOMEBODY ELSE CAN MOVE THROUGH
  • 00:06:42.050 --> 00:06:44.090
  • IT. YOU DON'T COME BACK AND SAY THIS IS MY LAND.
  • 00:06:44.110 --> 00:06:46.140
  • - THERE'S NOT REALLY A TITLE DEED IN WRITING TO THE LAND.
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:49.170
  • THIS IS REALLY THE WILD WEST.
  • 00:06:49.190 --> 00:06:51.100
  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:06:51.120 --> 00:06:52.170
  • AND THAT'S THE WAY BY THE WAY, IT WAS UP UNTIL
  • 00:06:52.190 --> 00:06:53.270
  • VERY RECENTLY, AMONG THE BEDOUIN TRIBES OF THIS AREA,
  • 00:06:53.290 --> 00:06:57.130
  • THEY DIDN'T OWN LAND, THEY GRAZED IT.
  • 00:06:57.150 --> 00:07:00.050
  • NOW, THEY'RE SETTLING DOWN FOR ALL SORTS OF CULTURAL
  • 00:07:00.070 --> 00:07:02.100
  • AND POLITICAL REASONS AND THAT SORT OF THING.
  • 00:07:02.120 --> 00:07:04.070
  • BUT THERE WAS NO OWNERSHIP IN THAT SENSE.
  • 00:07:04.090 --> 00:07:07.010
  • IT WAS ALSO TRUE IN TERMS OF NATIONAL LEVEL,
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:10.120
  • THERE WAS INFLUENCE RATHER THAN BORDER.
  • 00:07:10.140 --> 00:07:13.100
  • NOW, THIS BECOMES THE HOMESTEAD.
  • 00:07:13.120 --> 00:07:15.090
  • THIS IS WHERE ISAAC COMES BACK TO,
  • 00:07:15.110 --> 00:07:17.050
  • JACOB COMES BACK TO HERE FOR A WHILE.
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:20.130
  • BUT THE HOMESTEAD IN THE SENSE OF THIS IS THE AREA WHERE
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:24.070
  • HE PITCHED HIS TENT, AND THAT'S, HE DOESN'T BUILD A HOUSE.
  • 00:07:24.090 --> 00:07:29.140
  • HE IS A NOMAD WITHIN HIS LAND.
  • 00:07:29.160 --> 00:07:32.120
  • - THE PATRIARCH ABRAHAM.
  • 00:07:32.140 --> 00:07:34.060
  • ELLIOT, WHERE WE'RE STANDING RIGHT NOW, ABRAHAM,
  • 00:07:34.080 --> 00:07:36.180
  • ISAAC AND JACOB LIVED HERE.
  • 00:07:36.200 --> 00:07:39.070
  • - YES, HERE IN THIS AREA.
  • 00:07:39.090 --> 00:07:42.110
  • - WOW, AND THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING
  • 00:07:42.130 --> 00:07:44.010
  • OF THE STORY BY THE WAY.
  • 00:07:44.030 --> 00:07:45.030
  • -[ELLIOT] ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:46.180
  • - WE'RE GONNA HIT A WELL WITH GREAT BIBLICAL SIGNIFICANCE,
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:48.260
  • WE'RE GONNA HIT THE GATE OF THE CITY
  • 00:07:48.280 --> 00:07:50.280
  • AND WE'LL GET MORE INTO ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB,
  • 00:07:51.000 --> 00:07:53.180
  • THEIR PRESENCE, THEIR STORY HERE, AND WE'LL GO
  • 00:07:53.200 --> 00:07:55.260

  • - ELLIOT, I THINK IT BEARS MENTIONING THAT THIS SITE,
  • 00:09:27.160 --> 00:09:29.280
  • TEL BE'ER SHEBA WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW IS, I DON'T KNOW,
  • 00:09:30.000 --> 00:09:32.140
  • SOME 3800 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:09:32.160 --> 00:09:34.140
  • - YES. HIS ORIGINS YES.
  • 00:09:34.160 --> 00:09:35.240
  • - WOW, SO ABRAHAM WAS HERE ALMOST 4000 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:09:35.260 --> 00:09:38.220
  • ABRAHAM, FATHER ABRAHAM AS MANY CALL HIM, LOOK JUDAISM,
  • 00:09:38.240 --> 00:09:42.130
  • CHRISTIANITY, EVEN ISLAM CONSIDER ABRAHAM
  • 00:09:42.150 --> 00:09:45.010
  • THE FATHER OF THE FAITH.
  • 00:09:45.030 --> 00:09:46.080
  • SO MONOTHEISTIC RELIGION.
  • 00:09:46.100 --> 00:09:48.000
  • - YES, ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:09:48.020 --> 00:09:49.220
  • AND WHERE WE'RE STANDING RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:09:49.240 --> 00:09:52.010
  • PLAYS A PIVOTAL PART IN THE ABRAHAM STORY IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:09:52.030 --> 00:09:55.190
  • THIS IS A WELL AS PEOPLE CAN SEE.
  • 00:09:55.210 --> 00:09:57.270
  • BUT IT'S NOT JUST ANY WELL.
  • 00:09:57.290 --> 00:09:59.280
  • TELL US WHY THIS, ELLIOT, IS SO SIGNIFICANT
  • 00:10:00.000 --> 00:10:03.180
  • IN THE GENESIS STORY AND IN THE ABRAHAM STORY.
  • 00:10:03.200 --> 00:10:06.150
  • - THIS IS TRADITIONALLY THE WELL THAT ABRAHAM DUG.
  • 00:10:06.170 --> 00:10:10.010
  • AND I THINK HERE WE HAVE TO REMEMBER
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:11.130
  • THE WELL PRECEDES ALL OF THIS.
  • 00:10:11.150 --> 00:10:14.290
  • IMAGINE THAT WIDE OPEN SPACE.
  • 00:10:15.010 --> 00:10:17.060
  • AND HE DIGS WELLS BECAUSE IN THIS AREA,
  • 00:10:17.080 --> 00:10:19.210
  • AS WE MENTIONED BEFORE, IT'S NOT THE LAND,
  • 00:10:19.230 --> 00:10:22.180
  • WIDE OPEN SPACE DESERT, ITS WATER.
  • 00:10:22.200 --> 00:10:26.000
  • NOW, IN THE WINTER, IT MAY RAIN HERE
  • 00:10:26.020 --> 00:10:28.080
  • THERE MAY BE RUNNING WATER IN THE VALLEYS.
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:30.050
  • BUT WINTER IS A VERY SHORT PERIOD.
  • 00:10:30.070 --> 00:10:32.110
  • - AND FOLKS, IT IS HOT HERE BY THE WAY, JUST SO YOU KNOW.
  • 00:10:32.130 --> 00:10:34.190
  • - AND IT'S NOT SUMMER YET.
  • 00:10:34.210 --> 00:10:36.120
  • - NO.
  • 00:10:36.140 --> 00:10:37.150
  • - THE WELL IS REALLY THE ANCHOR POINT.
  • 00:10:37.170 --> 00:10:39.160
  • THIS IS WHERE YOU GET YOUR WATER YEAR ROUND,
  • 00:10:39.180 --> 00:10:41.190
  • WHERE YOU CAN WATER YOUR FLOCKS,
  • 00:10:41.210 --> 00:10:43.270
  • WHERE YOU CAN WATER YOURSELF.
  • 00:10:43.290 --> 00:10:46.110
  • AND YOU SHOULD KNOW, IF YOU'RE OUT HERE DURING THE DAY
  • 00:10:46.130 --> 00:10:48.290
  • DOING EXERCISE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TODAY'S STANDARDS,
  • 00:10:49.010 --> 00:10:53.020
  • A LITER OF WATER PER HOUR DRINKING--
  • 00:10:53.040 --> 00:10:56.080
  • - YOU'RE STAYING HYDRATED ALL DAY.
  • 00:10:56.100 --> 00:10:59.020
  • - IT'S A GALLON IN FOUR HOURS.
  • 00:10:59.040 --> 00:11:01.150
  • IT'S A LOT OF WATER.
  • 00:11:01.170 --> 00:11:02.260
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT, YOU CAN'T SURVIVE HERE.
  • 00:11:02.280 --> 00:11:04.250
  • OF COURSE, THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE THE CONFLICT
  • 00:11:04.270 --> 00:11:09.000
  • BETWEEN ABRAHAM AND NOT THE LEADERS OF THE PHILISTINES,
  • 00:11:09.020 --> 00:11:14.230
  • BUT PHILISTINES WERE OUT HERE, WHO STEAL HIS WELLS.
  • 00:11:14.250 --> 00:11:18.150
  • - THEY TAKE THIS WELL.
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:20.030
  • - YES.
  • 00:11:20.050 --> 00:11:21.100
  • - THIS ANCIENT NEARLY 4000 YEAR OLD WELL,
  • 00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:23.110
  • AND FIRST OF ALL THE PHILISTINES,
  • 00:11:23.130 --> 00:11:25.040
  • I DIDN'T KNOW THEY WERE THERE THAT EARLY.
  • 00:11:25.060 --> 00:11:27.010
  • THAT'S FASCINATING.
  • 00:11:27.030 --> 00:11:28.040
  • I KNEW THEY CAME FROM THE GREEK ISLES.
  • 00:11:28.060 --> 00:11:29.190
  • SETTLED ALONG THE COAST HERE.
  • 00:11:29.210 --> 00:11:31.190
  • - YES. WELL, THE LAND OF THE PHILISTINES IS THE AREA
  • 00:11:31.210 --> 00:11:34.030
  • OF ASHKELON, GAZA TODAY.
  • 00:11:34.050 --> 00:11:37.150
  • ONE THEORY IS THAT THEY TRIED TO CONQUER THE EGYPTIANS,
  • 00:11:37.170 --> 00:11:39.280
  • THEY FAILED BUT THE EGYPTIANS SAW THEY WERE GREAT FIGHTERS,
  • 00:11:40.000 --> 00:11:42.250
  • AND THEY EMPLOYED THOSE PROXY FORCES TO PROTECT
  • 00:11:42.270 --> 00:11:46.050
  • THE ENTRYWAY INTO EGYPT FROM MESOPOTAMIA.
  • 00:11:46.070 --> 00:11:51.180
  • BUT WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THAT WE'RE NOT TECHNICALLY
  • 00:11:51.200 --> 00:11:53.280
  • IN THE LAND OF THE PHILISTINES.
  • 00:11:54.000 --> 00:11:55.130
  • - NO.
  • 00:11:55.150 --> 00:11:56.190
  • - WE'RE EAST OF IT, WE'RE OUT IN THE DESERT.
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:11:58.250
  • AND THIS BRINGS US TO, I THINK, AN INTERESTING POINT
  • 00:11:58.270 --> 00:12:00.110
  • THAT IN THOSE DAYS, YOU DIDN'T HAVE BORDERS
  • 00:12:00.130 --> 00:12:03.030
  • THE WAY WE DO TODAY WITH A LINE ON THE MAP,
  • 00:12:03.050 --> 00:12:05.070
  • AND YOU'RE ON THIS SIDE, AND I'M ON THAT SIDE.
  • 00:12:05.090 --> 00:12:07.100
  • BUT LAND WAS MUCH MORE ABOUT CONTROL.
  • 00:12:07.120 --> 00:12:10.060
  • IF YOUR ARMY COULD REACH OUT TO IT, YOU CONTROLLED IT.
  • 00:12:10.080 --> 00:12:13.130
  • IF THERE WAS AN ARMY ON THE OTHER SIDE,
  • 00:12:13.150 --> 00:12:15.060
  • THERE MIGHT BE AN OVERLAP OF INFLUENCE AND POWER
  • 00:12:15.080 --> 00:12:17.250
  • WITHOUT AN EXACT BORDER BETWEEN THE TWO.
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:20.230
  • SO WE'RE NOT STRICTLY IN THE LAND OF THE PHILISTINES,
  • 00:12:20.250 --> 00:12:23.220
  • BUT THE PHILISTINES INFLUENCE REACHES OUT TO HERE.
  • 00:12:23.240 --> 00:12:26.280
  • THIS IS A TIME WHEN THERE ARE NO REAL BORDERS IN THAT SENSE,
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:29.210
  • BUT RATHER INFLUENCE AND POWER.
  • 00:12:29.230 --> 00:12:31.150
  • REAL BORDERS ONLY BEGIN IN THE BOOK OF JOSHUA,
  • 00:12:31.170 --> 00:12:34.200
  • CHAPTER 14 AND BEYOND WHERE THE BORDERS OF THE TRIBES
  • 00:12:34.220 --> 00:12:37.240
  • ARE DELINEATED POINT BY POINT, LOCATION, LOCATION.
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:41.010
  • WHAT HAPPENS HERE IS THE PHILISTINES ARE OUT THERE
  • 00:12:41.030 --> 00:12:43.090
  • GRAZING, THEY NEED THE WATER THEY TAKE THE WELLS.
  • 00:12:43.110 --> 00:12:46.140
  • - INCLUDING THIS ONE.
  • 00:12:46.160 --> 00:12:47.220
  • - INCLUDING THIS ONE, AND ABRAHAM COMPLAINS
  • 00:12:47.240 --> 00:12:50.150
  • TO ABIMELECH, THE KING AND THE KING COMES OUT
  • 00:12:50.170 --> 00:12:53.050
  • AND SIGNIFICANTLY COMES OUT WITH HIS GENERAL,
  • 00:12:53.070 --> 00:12:55.260
  • THE LEADER OF HIS ARMY.
  • 00:12:55.280 --> 00:12:57.130
  • THIS IS NOT JUST A POLITICAL ISSUE, IT'S A MILITARY ISSUE
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:13:01.090
  • AND THAT'S WHERE THEY HAVE THE COVENANT BETWEEN THEM.
  • 00:13:01.110 --> 00:13:05.130
  • AND THE WELL IS KNOWN AS THE WELL
  • 00:13:05.150 --> 00:13:09.080
  • OF THE COVENANT OR THE PROMISE.
  • 00:13:09.100 --> 00:13:12.060
  • BE'ER SHEBA, BE'ER SHEVA COMES FROM THAT.
  • 00:13:12.080 --> 00:13:14.270
  • - SO THAT'S WHAT IT TRANSLATES INTO.
  • 00:13:14.290 --> 00:13:16.100
  • SO, ABIMELECH COMES OUT WITH HIS GENERAL,
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:18.130
  • HE'S READY TO GO TO BATTLE WITH ABRAHAM OVER THIS WELL,
  • 00:13:18.150 --> 00:13:21.030
  • BUT ABRAHAM, ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OF GENESIS PROVES,
  • 00:13:21.050 --> 00:13:24.060
  • HEY, I DUG THIS. THIS IS MINE.
  • 00:13:24.080 --> 00:13:26.120
  • IT'S A VERY DEEP WELL, BY THE WAY, AS PEOPLE CAN SEE HERE.
  • 00:13:26.140 --> 00:13:29.120
  • - YES. ABIMELECH DOESN'T WANNA GO TO WAR WITH ABRAHAM
  • 00:13:29.140 --> 00:13:31.260
  • BECAUSE HE ALREADY KNOWS ABRAHAM IS THE CHOSEN ONE.
  • 00:13:31.280 --> 00:13:36.220
  • AND YOU DON'T MESS WITH HIM BECAUSE YOU GET INTO TROUBLE.
  • 00:13:36.240 --> 00:13:39.040
  • HE LEARNED THAT WITH SARAH.
  • 00:13:39.060 --> 00:13:40.200
  • AFTER THAT, THEY BUILD A CITY HERE
  • 00:13:40.220 --> 00:13:42.190
  • AND THE ORIGIN OF THIS CITY SOME 3500 YEARS AGO,
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:47.140
  • BUT THE CITY THAT REALLY ESTABLISHES THIS PLACE COMES
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:52.280
  • LATER IN THE TIME OF DAVID AND SOLOMON.
  • 00:13:53.000 --> 00:13:54.190
  • - YOU KNOW, ELLIOT, YOU MENTIONED HOW ABIMELECH
  • 00:13:54.210 --> 00:13:56.130
  • KINDA LEARNED THE HARD WAY ABOUT ABRAHAM'S FAVORITE
  • 00:13:56.150 --> 00:13:59.290
  • POSITION IN THE EYES OF GOD ALMIGHTY.
  • 00:14:00.030 --> 00:14:01.280
  • - YES.
  • 00:14:02.000 --> 00:14:03.080
  • - HE HAD A DREAM, A VERY DISTURBING DREAM WHERE GOD SAID,
  • 00:14:03.100 --> 00:14:05.040
  • HEY, YOU TOOK ABRAHAM'S WIFE, YOU'RE IN BIG TROUBLE.
  • 00:14:05.060 --> 00:14:08.070
  • -[ELLIOT] AND HE SAID, I DID WHAT?
  • 00:14:08.090 --> 00:14:09.040
  • I THOUGHT SHE WAS HIS SISTER.
  • 00:14:09.060 --> 00:14:10.140
  • -[ERICK] BECAUSE ABRAHAM TOLD ABIMELECH IN AN ATTEMPT
  • 00:14:10.160 --> 00:14:13.030
  • TO KEEP THE PEACE, OH, SARAH IS MY SISTER.
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:15.170
  • SHE'S NOT MY WIFE.
  • 00:14:15.190 --> 00:14:17.130
  • - AND I THINK IT'S AN INTERESTING EXAMPLE.
  • 00:14:17.150 --> 00:14:19.050
  • AND IT'S A RATHER COMMON ONE IN THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES,
  • 00:14:19.070 --> 00:14:22.180
  • THAT EVEN THE GREATS, WHETHER IT'S ABRAHAM, ISAAC,
  • 00:14:22.200 --> 00:14:26.100
  • JACOB, MOSES, ARE HUMAN BEINGS, DAVID, HUMAN BEINGS.
  • 00:14:26.120 --> 00:14:30.160
  • THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN CONSTANT INTERACTION WITH GOD.
  • 00:14:30.180 --> 00:14:35.190
  • AND YET THEY HAVE THEIR MOMENTS.
  • 00:14:35.210 --> 00:14:38.050
  • - THEY'RE HUMAN. - THEY'RE HUMAN.
  • 00:14:38.070 --> 00:14:40.000
  • THEY'RE NOT PERFECT.
  • 00:14:40.020 --> 00:14:41.160
  • - AND SOME OF THEM ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB MAY HAVE WALKED
  • 00:14:41.180 --> 00:14:44.070
  • THIS VERY PATH WHERE WE ARE WALKING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:14:44.090 --> 00:14:47.170
  • THEIR FEET MAY HAVE TREAD THESE STONES
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:50.080
  • CLOSE TO 4.000 YEARS AGO. BUT THEY'RE ONLY HUMAN.
  • 00:14:50.100 --> 00:14:53.210
  • AS YOU SAID, HIGHLY FAVORED, ANOINTED BY GOD.
  • 00:14:53.230 --> 00:14:56.080
  • BUT ABRAHAM MADE A MISTAKE.
  • 00:14:56.100 --> 00:14:58.040
  • - GREAT BELIEF BUT HE SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:14:58.060 --> 00:15:01.100
  • I STILL HAVE TO COVER MYSELF.
  • 00:15:01.120 --> 00:15:02.240
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:15:02.260 --> 00:15:04.080
  • SO THERE'S KIND OF AN UNEASY TRUCE I GUESS YOU WOULD SAY
  • 00:15:04.100 --> 00:15:05.180
  • WITH ABIMELECH, BETWEEN ABRAHAM, ABIMELECH.
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:08.040
  • THEY MAKE THE TRUCE OVER THE WELL,
  • 00:15:08.060 --> 00:15:09.190
  • KIND OF AND PEACE TREATY WE WOULD SAY TODAY, I GUESS.
  • 00:15:09.210 --> 00:15:12.060
  • - AND THE TEXT TELLS US THAT FROM THAT POINT ON,
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:14.190
  • HE STAYS IN THE LAND OF THE PHILISTINES FOR MANY DAYS,
  • 00:15:14.210 --> 00:15:18.130
  • IN OTHER WORDS, HE TRAVELS AROUND ALSO TO THE WEST,
  • 00:15:18.150 --> 00:15:21.040
  • MEANING CLOSER TO THE PHILISTINES.
  • 00:15:21.060 --> 00:15:22.290
  • AND BACK TO HERE BECAUSE IT'S FROM HERE OF COURSE,
  • 00:15:23.010 --> 00:15:25.220
  • THAT HE ALSO LEAVES ON THE THREE DAY JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM
  • 00:15:25.240 --> 00:15:29.200
  • TO SACRIFICE ISAAC, WHICH OF COURSE--
  • 00:15:29.220 --> 00:15:31.010
  • -[ERICK] MOUNT MORIAH.
  • 00:15:31.030 --> 00:15:32.120
  • - MOUNT MORIAH, WHICH, OF COURSE, THE ANGEL STOPS HIM.
  • 00:15:32.140 --> 00:15:34.220
  • BUT IT'S FROM HERE HE GOES, AND THEN RETURNS HERE.
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:38.080
  • AND THEN SARAH DIES IN HEBRON.
  • 00:15:38.100 --> 00:15:41.060
  • SO APPARENTLY SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY,
  • 00:15:41.080 --> 00:15:42.120
  • THERE WAS A ANOTHER BIT OF A TRANSITION.
  • 00:15:42.140 --> 00:15:44.140
  • - YEAH, BUT HE SPENT A GREAT AMOUNT OF HIS TIME,
  • 00:15:44.160 --> 00:15:47.220
  • A GREAT AMOUNT OF BIBLICAL NARRATIVE MENTIONING ABRAHAM
  • 00:15:47.240 --> 00:15:50.170
  • UNFOLDED WHERE ELLIOT AND I ARE STANDING RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:15:50.190 --> 00:15:54.070
  • WOW, THE PATRIARCH RIGHT HERE IN TEL BE'ER SHEBA.
  • 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:57.200
  • BY THE WAY, WE HAD THE ONE WELL CONFLICT BETWEEN ABIMELECH
  • 00:15:57.220 --> 00:16:01.170
  • AND ABRAHAM, THEN A LITTLE LATER ON IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS
  • 00:16:01.190 --> 00:16:04.240
  • ABIMELECH VERSUS ISAAC, ABRAHAM'S SON,
  • 00:16:04.260 --> 00:16:07.210
  • ONCE AGAIN OVER A WELL, RIGHT?
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:09.100
  • - YES. AND IT SHOWS AGAIN, THAT IMPORTANCE OF
  • 00:16:09.120 --> 00:16:12.060
  • WATER IN THIS AREA,
  • 00:16:12.080 --> 00:16:15.050
  • MORE SO THAN LAND PER SE. ESPECIALLY FOR GRAZERS.
  • 00:16:15.070 --> 00:16:19.240
  • AND HERE, LET'S KEEP IN MIND THAT WE'RE TALKING
  • 00:16:19.260 --> 00:16:21.260
  • ABOUT ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB
  • 00:16:21.280 --> 00:16:23.170
  • AND HIS CHILDREN ARE SHEPHERDS.
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:26.180
  • MOSES, SHEPHERD.
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.060
  • THERE'S A RECURRING THEME HERE.
  • 00:16:28.080 --> 00:16:30.110
  • AND THE IDEA OF CONTROL OVER AN AREA BUT ULTIMATELY THOSE
  • 00:16:30.130 --> 00:16:35.150
  • ANCHOR POINTS, THE ANCHOR POINTS OF THE WELLS DOWN HERE.
  • 00:16:35.170 --> 00:16:39.210
  • -[NARRATOR] HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH, IRAN, ISIS,
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:43.270
  • THE SAME TERRORIST FORCES THAT SEEK TO ANNIHILATE ISRAEL
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:47.050
  • HAVE A BULL'S EYE ON THE BACK OF THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:16:47.070 --> 00:16:50.000
  • AT CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR ISRAEL,
  • 00:16:50.020 --> 00:16:51.260
  • WE KNOW THAT ISRAEL'S ENEMIES
  • 00:16:51.280 --> 00:16:53.190
  • AND AMERICA'S ARE ONE AND THE SAME.
  • 00:16:53.210 --> 00:16:56.020
  • WHEN ISRAEL COMES UNDER ATTACK, A NATIONWIDE NETWORK
  • 00:16:56.040 --> 00:16:58.290

  • TO MOVE THE US EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM,
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:10.010

  • - YOU KNOW ELLIOT, WHEN I THINK OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:18:03.270 --> 00:18:05.010
  • I THINK OF HIS NARRATIVE, HIS STORY.
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:06.230
  • WHAT A MAN OF INCREDIBLE FAITH, OF TRUST IN GOD.
  • 00:18:06.250 --> 00:18:10.090
  • NOT ONLY COMING HERE TO THE GREAT UNKNOWN
  • 00:18:10.110 --> 00:18:12.080
  • TO TEL BE'ER SHEBA, BUT AS YOU MENTIONED, MOUNT MORIAH
  • 00:18:12.100 --> 00:18:14.240
  • NEARLY SACRIFICING ISAAC HIS SON.
  • 00:18:14.260 --> 00:18:17.100
  • WOW, A PORTRAIT OF FAITH HERE.
  • 00:18:17.120 --> 00:18:19.260
  • BUT SUCH HUMBLE BEGINNINGS, RIGHT, FOR THIS MAN OF GOD.
  • 00:18:19.280 --> 00:18:22.140
  • - YES. HE LEAVES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:18:22.160 --> 00:18:27.070
  • - AT LEAST IN HIS PROPHETIC CAREER, HUMBLE BEGINNINGS,
  • 00:18:27.090 --> 00:18:29.220
  • I GUESS YOU WOULD SAY?
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:30.150
  • - SURE.
  • 00:18:30.170 --> 00:18:32.000
  • WELL, LET'S SAY HE TRADES ALL THE PHYSICAL TO COME TO LIVE
  • 00:18:32.020 --> 00:18:34.170
  • OUT HERE IN A TENT IN THE DESERT AND BECOME A SHEPHERD.
  • 00:18:34.190 --> 00:18:37.260
  • - YEAH, BUT LOOK, THE ABRAHAMIC STORY WASN'T THE END
  • 00:18:37.280 --> 00:18:42.270
  • OF TEL BE'ER SHEBA'S BIBLICAL LINEAGE, RIGHT?
  • 00:18:42.290 --> 00:18:46.140
  • OKAY, WE KNOW ABOUT ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB,
  • 00:18:46.160 --> 00:18:48.020
  • WE MENTIONED THE STORY OF ISAAC AND THE WELL.
  • 00:18:48.040 --> 00:18:50.250
  • JACOB HAD SOME PIVOTAL MOMENTS HERE
  • 00:18:50.270 --> 00:18:52.170
  • AS LAID OUT IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS.
  • 00:18:52.190 --> 00:18:54.260
  • WHAT CAME NEXT?
  • 00:18:54.280 --> 00:18:56.180
  • - THE MAJOR POINTS HERE, THERE'S A PERIOD OF COURSE,
  • 00:18:56.200 --> 00:19:01.090
  • THE ISRAELITES ARE SLAVES.
  • 00:19:01.110 --> 00:19:02.290
  • THIS AREA IS NOT INHABITED BY THE ISRAELITES.
  • 00:19:03.010 --> 00:19:07.130
  • BUT AFTER THEIR RETURN ULTIMATELY, THERE'S A KINGDOM
  • 00:19:07.150 --> 00:19:10.160
  • UNDER DAVID, THE SON SOLOMON.
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:14.050
  • AND THE REFERENCES ALL TALK ABOUT THE LAND FROM DAN
  • 00:19:14.070 --> 00:19:17.080
  • FROM DAN IN THE NORTH TO BE'ER SHEBA IN THE SOUTH.
  • 00:19:17.100 --> 00:19:21.060
  • SO WE'RE AT THE SOUTHERN EXTENT OF THE NATIONAL BOUNDARIES.
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:25.200
  • I USE THE WORD BOUNDARY RATHER THAN BORDER BECAUSE
  • 00:19:25.220 --> 00:19:27.250
  • IT'S AS I SAID BEFORE, IT'S NOT A SHARP LINE.
  • 00:19:27.270 --> 00:19:30.130
  • THERE ARE NO MAPS IN THOSE DAYS.
  • 00:19:30.150 --> 00:19:31.260
  • - THAT'S FASCINATING, BY THE WAY,
  • 00:19:31.280 --> 00:19:32.230
  • JUST AS A QUICK ASIDE, ELLIOT,
  • 00:19:32.250 --> 00:19:34.020
  • THE FIRST BORDERS KNOWN TO MANKIND WERE LAID
  • 00:19:34.040 --> 00:19:37.000
  • OUT BY GOD HIMSELF--
  • 00:19:37.020 --> 00:19:38.270
  • - IN JOSHUA. - IN JOSHUA.
  • 00:19:38.290 --> 00:19:40.010
  • - IN JOSHUA, STARTING IN CHAPTER 14.
  • 00:19:40.030 --> 00:19:43.120
  • BUT IF YOU SAID FROM NORTH TO SOUTH IN THOSE DAYS,
  • 00:19:43.140 --> 00:19:45.200
  • NOBODY WOULD HAVE KNOWN WHAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:19:45.220 --> 00:19:47.060
  • SO DAN IS THE ANCHOR OF THE NORTH,
  • 00:19:47.080 --> 00:19:49.000
  • BE'ER SHEBA IS THE ANCHOR OF THE SOUTH.
  • 00:19:49.020 --> 00:19:51.130
  • AND NOW WE HAVE A KINGDOM.
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:53.140
  • AND DAVID ESSENTIALLY DEFEATS THE ENEMIES AROUND.
  • 00:19:53.160 --> 00:19:56.260
  • SOLOMON IS NOW BUILDING THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:19:56.280 --> 00:19:58.180
  • HE BUILT THE TEMPLE, AND HE'S FORTIFYING THE KINGDOM.
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:20:02.230
  • THIS GATE IS FROM THE TIME OF SOLOMON.
  • 00:20:02.250 --> 00:20:05.020
  • SO IT'S ONLY 3000 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:20:05.040 --> 00:20:06.250
  • - IS THAT ALL?
  • 00:20:06.270 --> 00:20:08.210
  • - YOU KNOW, ERICK, WHAT YOU PEOPLE IN AMERICA CALL HISTORY
  • 00:20:08.230 --> 00:20:11.270
  • WE CALL THE LATE MODERN PERIOD.
  • 00:20:11.290 --> 00:20:14.090
  • WE USE CENTURIES AS ROUNDING ERRORS.
  • 00:20:14.110 --> 00:20:16.230
  • SO, YEAH, 3000 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:20:16.250 --> 00:20:18.220
  • BUT WHAT REALLY MAKES IT INTERESTING TO ME--
  • 00:20:18.240 --> 00:20:21.150
  • ITS AGE IS NICE.
  • 00:20:21.170 --> 00:20:23.120
  • BUT IT'S IDENTICAL IN DESIGN TO THE GATES THAT SOLOMON BUILT
  • 00:20:23.140 --> 00:20:27.280
  • IN MEGIDDO IN THE NORTH, IN HAZOR IN THE NORTH.
  • 00:20:28.000 --> 00:20:30.240
  • IN OTHER WORDS, WHAT WE SEE HERE IS NO LONGER
  • 00:20:30.260 --> 00:20:33.290
  • A TRIBAL CONGLOMERATE, BUT A CENTRAL KINGDOM
  • 00:20:34.010 --> 00:20:38.230
  • THAT IS NOW TAKING OVERALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE LAND.
  • 00:20:38.250 --> 00:20:42.050
  • - WITH SHARED CHARACTERISTICS. THE GATES ARE THE SAME.
  • 00:20:42.070 --> 00:20:44.270
  • - EXACTLY. IN OTHER WORDS, THE ORDERS,
  • 00:20:44.290 --> 00:20:46.160
  • THE DESIGN IS COMING DOWN FROM ABOVE.
  • 00:20:46.180 --> 00:20:48.280
  • AND IT MAY NOT MAY HAVE BEEN THE SAME BUILDERS,
  • 00:20:49.000 --> 00:20:52.020
  • PROBABLY NOT, BUT THE DESIGNERS ARE THE SAME.
  • 00:20:52.040 --> 00:20:54.240
  • THE SUPERVISORS ARE COMING FROM THE SAME SCHOOL OF THOUGHT,
  • 00:20:54.260 --> 00:20:57.230
  • AND THEY'RE USING THE EXACT SAME DESIGN METHOD.
  • 00:20:57.250 --> 00:21:00.210
  • I THINK IT'S ALSO IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:21:00.230 --> 00:21:02.230
  • THAT WHILE BEERSHEBA, BE'ER SHEVA IS MENTIONED
  • 00:21:02.250 --> 00:21:05.010
  • AS THE SOUTHERN END, THEIR FORTRESSES FURTHER SOUTH
  • 00:21:05.030 --> 00:21:08.220
  • TOWARDS THE EDGE OF THE LAND OF JUDAH,
  • 00:21:08.240 --> 00:21:11.180
  • AS MENTIONED EVEN IN JOSHUA IS THE WILDERNESS OF ZIN,
  • 00:21:11.200 --> 00:21:16.180
  • SOUTH OF US IN THE NEGEV, AND IN THAT AREA,
  • 00:21:16.200 --> 00:21:19.160
  • THERE WAS AN OUTPOST LINE OF FORTRESSES,
  • 00:21:19.180 --> 00:21:21.170
  • DEFENDING REALLY THE EDGE OF WHAT WAS CONSIDERED
  • 00:21:21.190 --> 00:21:24.190
  • TO BE THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:21:24.210 --> 00:21:26.010
  • BUT EVEN THEN, THE INFLUENCE OF THE KINGDOM EXTENDED
  • 00:21:26.030 --> 00:21:29.130
  • MUCH FURTHER SOUTH, ALL THE WAY TO THE SOUTHERN TIP.
  • 00:21:29.150 --> 00:21:32.060
  • - WOW, THE GOLDEN DAYS FOR SURE.
  • 00:21:32.080 --> 00:21:34.040
  • THE DAVIDIC DYNASTY AND UNDER SOLOMON,
  • 00:21:34.060 --> 00:21:36.200
  • AND IT'S INTERESTING TOO OBVIOUSLY AS YOU'VE LAID OUT
  • 00:21:36.220 --> 00:21:39.270
  • SO ELOQUENTLY, ELLIOT, BORDERS, BORDERS, BORDERS.
  • 00:21:39.290 --> 00:21:42.110
  • BE'ER SHEBA'S MENTIONED MANY TIMES IN THE BIBLE
  • 00:21:42.130 --> 00:21:44.210
  • OFTEN IS LIKE A SOUTHERN POINT.
  • 00:21:44.230 --> 00:21:47.240
  • IT'S ALSO MENTIONED A LITTLE BIT LATER ON, RIGHT?
  • 00:21:47.260 --> 00:21:49.200
  • THE DESTRUCTION OF BE'ER SHEBA.
  • 00:21:49.220 --> 00:21:53.010
  • THERE'S A GREAT DEBATE AMONG THE ARCHEOLOGISTS,
  • 00:21:53.030 --> 00:21:56.050
  • WHETHER IT WAS DESTROYED BY THE ASSYRIANS UNDER SENNACHERIB,
  • 00:21:56.070 --> 00:22:00.050
  • OR UNDER THE BABYLONIAN'S NEBUCHADNEZZAR
  • 00:22:00.070 --> 00:22:02.160
  • DURING THE TIME OF THE DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:22:02.180 --> 00:22:03.250
  • -[ERICK] TWO NASTY GUYS.
  • 00:22:03.270 --> 00:22:04.270
  • - TWO VERY NASTY GUYS.
  • 00:22:04.290 --> 00:22:06.120
  • ONE MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN THE OTHER FOR THEMSELVES.
  • 00:22:06.140 --> 00:22:10.150
  • BUT IT'S, I THINK AN INTERESTING ILLUSTRATION OF
  • 00:22:10.170 --> 00:22:14.100
  • THE FACT THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A DISCREPANCY
  • 00:22:14.120 --> 00:22:15.160
  • OF ABOUT 150 YEARS BETWEEN THEM.
  • 00:22:15.180 --> 00:22:18.010
  • WHAT'S A CENTURY AND A 1/2 BETWEEN FRIENDS?
  • 00:22:18.030 --> 00:22:20.200
  • IT COULD HAVE BEEN ONE, IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE OTHER.
  • 00:22:20.220 --> 00:22:21.250
  • IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO IN EITHER CASE,
  • 00:22:21.270 --> 00:22:23.120
  • BOTH MAJOR INVASIONS OF THE LAND OF ISRAEL FROM MESOPOTAMIA.
  • 00:22:23.140 --> 00:22:28.220
  • BUT THAT REALLY BRINGS BE'ER SHEBA TO AN END
  • 00:22:28.240 --> 00:22:32.030
  • DURING THAT PERIOD.
  • 00:22:32.050 --> 00:22:33.090
  • - YEAH, AND JUST A BRIEF MENTION ELLIOT,
  • 00:22:33.110 --> 00:22:34.270
  • 2 KINGS SAYS THAT KING HEZEKIAH AND HIS GREAT REFORMS
  • 00:22:34.290 --> 00:22:38.130
  • AGAINST PAGAN IDOL WORSHIP, APPARENTLY MADE SOME REFORMS
  • 00:22:38.150 --> 00:22:42.010
  • HERE IN BE'ER SHEBA.
  • 00:22:42.030 --> 00:22:43.250
  • FROM ABRAHAM, FROM THE HEIGHTS OF ABRAHAM THE FATHER,
  • 00:22:43.270 --> 00:22:46.010
  • IT FELL INTO IDOL WORSHIP EVENTUALLY.
  • 00:22:46.030 --> 00:22:48.030
  • - YES. AND THEY FOUND REMNANTS OF AN ALTAR ACTUALLY USED
  • 00:22:48.050 --> 00:22:54.020
  • IN ONE OF THE WALLS, NOT INTACT,
  • 00:22:54.040 --> 00:22:57.060
  • BECAUSE IT SAYS THAT HE DESTROYED THEM.
  • 00:22:57.080 --> 00:22:59.010
  • - HEZEKIAH DID, TO HIS CREDIT.
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:01.160
  • - AND IT MATCHES. IT WOULD HAVE NOT MATCHED.
  • 00:23:01.180 --> 00:23:05.020
  • AND I'M NOT SURPRISED THAT THE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE
  • 00:23:05.040 --> 00:23:08.070
  • MATCHES THE SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:23:08.090 --> 00:23:10.110
  • BUT IT WASN'T FOUND INTACT.
  • 00:23:10.130 --> 00:23:12.150
  • BUT IT SHOWS I THINK, ALSO A RATHER IMPORTANT POINT,
  • 00:23:12.170 --> 00:23:16.100
  • THAT EVEN AND WE SEE THIS AMONG THOSE
  • 00:23:16.120 --> 00:23:20.000
  • THE ISRAELITES IN THE DESERT AND BEYOND,
  • 00:23:20.020 --> 00:23:22.130
  • THEY HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING PHYSICAL.
  • 00:23:22.150 --> 00:23:25.260
  • IT'S SO DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE IN THAT INVISIBLE,
  • 00:23:25.280 --> 00:23:30.160
  • OMNIPOTENT GOD.
  • 00:23:30.180 --> 00:23:32.140
  • - YEAH, MUCH EASIER TO JUST HOLD THIS IDOL--
  • 00:23:32.160 --> 00:23:34.280
  • - AND SAY, OH, THIS I GET.
  • 00:23:35.000 --> 00:23:37.060
  • - BUT WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE EXAMPLE OF THAT VERY TRUST
  • 00:23:37.080 --> 00:23:40.160
  • IN THAT INVISIBLE GOD IN ABRAHAM.
  • 00:23:40.180 --> 00:23:43.040
  • - YES.
  • 00:23:43.060 --> 00:23:44.160
  • - MORE THAN ANYONE I THINK IN THE PAGES OF THE BIBLE.
  • 00:23:44.180 --> 00:23:46.000
  • THAT'S WHY IT WAS SO SPECIAL TO COME HERE TODAY, ELLIOT.
  • 00:23:46.020 --> 00:23:47.240
  • WOW, TO WALK ON THIS ANCIENT LAND HERE IN TEL BE'ER SHEBA,
  • 00:23:47.260 --> 00:23:51.160
  • TO THINK OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB.
  • 00:23:51.180 --> 00:23:53.250
  • IN MANY WAYS, THIS IS WHERE IT ALL BEGAN,
  • 00:23:53.270 --> 00:23:56.250
  • IN TERMS OF THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL,
  • 00:23:56.270 --> 00:23:58.100
