  • (Mati Shoshani narrating) It is the land of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
  • 00:00:02.060 --> 00:00:05.280
  • the birthplace of Jesus.
  • 00:00:05.290 --> 00:00:09.000
  • From Genesis to Revelation,
  • 00:00:09.010 --> 00:00:11.010
  • Israel is the centerpiece of God's story,
  • 00:00:11.020 --> 00:00:13.240
  • a saga that continues to unfold in our daily news.
  • 00:00:13.250 --> 00:00:18.230
  • But behind the headlines are the people
  • 00:00:18.240 --> 00:00:20.050
  • caught in the crosshairs of some really complex issues.
  • 00:00:20.060 --> 00:00:22.270
  • It can be hard to see clearly from the outside,
  • 00:00:22.280 --> 00:00:25.020
  • so let's explore my homeland from within.
  • 00:00:25.030 --> 00:00:28.030
  • 00:00:28.060 --> 00:00:38.040
  • 00:00:38.050 --> 00:00:48.040
  • 00:00:48.050 --> 00:00:58.040
  • 00:00:58.050 --> 00:01:05.100
  • (narrator) Modern Israel is a relatively young nation.
  • 00:01:07.160 --> 00:01:11.180
  • But it has seen its fair share of dark moments
  • 00:01:11.190 --> 00:01:13.260
  • over the last 7 decades of its existence.
  • 00:01:13.270 --> 00:01:17.190
  • Keeping your vision alive isn't easy when opposition,
  • 00:01:17.200 --> 00:01:20.100
  • antagonism, and even war are pounding on your door.
  • 00:01:20.110 --> 00:01:24.100
  • Faith can dim when you don't see eye to eye
  • 00:01:24.110 --> 00:01:26.150
  • with those closest to you.
  • 00:01:26.160 --> 00:01:29.050
  • This is the story of a man who looked beyond the circumstances
  • 00:01:29.060 --> 00:01:32.120
  • to see what others could not.
  • 00:01:32.130 --> 00:01:36.180
  • 00:01:36.190 --> 00:01:46.200
  • 00:01:46.200 --> 00:01:56.200
  • 00:10:22.140 --> 00:10:27.020
  • 00:21:56.270 --> 00:22:06.280
  • 00:23:34.090 --> 00:23:38.110
  • 00:25:44.090 --> 00:25:46.200
  • (narrator) When the children of Israel were trapped
  • 00:25:46.230 --> 00:25:48.120
  • between Pharaoh's army and the Red Sea,
  • 00:25:48.130 --> 00:25:50.150
  • God told Moses, "Stand firm and you will see
  • 00:25:50.160 --> 00:25:53.180
  • the deliverance of the Lord."
  • 00:25:53.190 --> 00:25:56.280
  • Yes, their predicament looked hopeless, but God was at work.
  • 00:25:56.290 --> 00:26:00.270
  • In fact, whether we see it or not,
  • 00:26:00.280 --> 00:26:03.180
  • God is always working.
  • 00:26:03.190 --> 00:26:06.230
  • But like the children of Israel, fear, doubt, and unforgiveness
  • 00:26:06.240 --> 00:26:10.260
  • can blind us from seeing God's presence.
  • 00:26:10.270 --> 00:26:14.240
  • Simply remember the Apostle Paul,
  • 00:26:14.250 --> 00:26:17.040
  • a man whose life was changed
  • 00:26:17.050 --> 00:26:18.260
  • when he saw the light of Christ.
  • 00:26:18.270 --> 00:26:23.030
  • I leave you with a psalm penned by King David,
  • 00:26:23.040 --> 00:26:25.210
  • a blessing over the city, and indeed a prayer for Israel.
  • 00:26:25.220 --> 00:26:31.080
  • "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
  • 00:26:31.090 --> 00:26:33.120
  • "May they prosper who love you.
  • 00:26:33.130 --> 00:26:35.100
  • "May peace be within your walls
  • 00:26:35.110 --> 00:26:37.030
  • "and prosperity within your palaces.
  • 00:26:37.040 --> 00:26:39.120
  • "For the sake of my brothers and friends,
  • 00:26:39.130 --> 00:26:41.110
  • "I will now say may peace be within you.
  • 00:26:41.120 --> 00:26:43.280
  • "For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
  • 00:26:43.290 --> 00:26:46.170
  • I will seek your good."
  • 00:26:46.180 --> 00:26:49.160
  • 00:26:49.170 --> 00:26:55.120
