Christian groups have banded together to launch a new documentary television series called Why Israel Matters, which is a program geared to inform believers and non-believers alike about what the ancient land of Israel and its Jewish people mean – or should mean – to the world today.
In a joint partnership, Christians in Defense of Israel (CIDI), Liberty Counsel and the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) worked to produce the new 13-episode television series, Why Israel Matters, to set the record straight about the biblical importance of the Holy Land in the midst of the fierce opposition waged against the Jewish State by the pro-Palestinian politically correct agenda promoted by the schools, entertainment industry and mainstream media.
Setting the biblical record straight
The program shares with viewers how Israel was given to the Jewish people by God – dispelling the propaganda disseminated by the mainstream media and liberal pundits that Israel has unrightfully taken land from the Palestinians. It takes audiences back thousands of years ago – when God led the Israelites to take over the Middle Eastern region – and shows how the Jewish people fulfilled biblical prophesy by reclaiming the Holy Land in 1948 … approximately 2,000 years after they were dispersed as a nation to every corner of the world.
The series – which takes audiences through the Promised Land from a biblical perspective – debuted last Tuesday. It sets out to explain to the world why a tiny nation in the Middle East – about the size of New Jersey – is so important to Christians, America and the entire world.
TBN Chairman Matt Crouch stressed how important it is for the United States to support Israel in its ongoing conflict against the Palestinians and the Islamic nations surrounding it in the Middle East that are set upon its ultimate destruction.
"From the moment TBN first went on the air back in 1973, we've taken seriously the scriptural promise that God will bless those who bless Israel," Crouch expressed, according to CBN News.
The Christian leader’s main purpose behind the series is to familiarize people with a true and honest understanding of what the nation of Israel and the Jewish people mean to God and how He has worked through them over the millennia in miraculous ways.
"[W]e're proud to team up with CIDI and Liberty Counsel for an exciting new weekly show that will give viewers an up-close look at this nation and the people so close to the heart of God," Crouch continued.
A virtual tour of Israel
Mati Shoshani, an Israeli expert on the history of the Jewish State, leads viewers through various biblical sites of the Holy Land on a weekly basis, uncovering the miraculous story of how and why God chose the people of Israel to inhabit and claim the Holy Land for His glory.
CIDI Chairman Matt Staver played a major role in making the new series touring Israel possible. He has been a staunch supporter of Israel for decades and frequently challenged former President Barack Obama on his anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian foreign policy. Most recently, he opposed Obama’s refusal to veto the United Nations Security Council’s anti-Israel resolution that condemned Israel for building new settlements in the West Bank and Eastern Jerusalem – also known as Judea and Samaria in biblical times.
Staver, who is also serves as chairman of the Orlando, Florida-based Christian legal organization Liberty Counsel, says the show helps make it clear why Americans from all walks of life should support Israel as Islamic terrorists continue to wage jihad on the tiny, yet powerful Middle Eastern nation.
"There has never been a more important time for Christians and others of good will across America and around the world to stand in solidarity with the nation and people of Israel," Staver insisted.
The Israel advocate believes that it is imperative in this day and age – which is on the doorstep of the End Times referred to in the Bible – for people to glean a better sense of what Israel and its people truly stand for, especially as the latest wave of anti-Semitism in the U.S. continues to escalate, as witnessed through more than 100 bomb threats to Jewish organizations and the vandalism of hundreds of tombstones in Jewish cemeteries across the nation.
"Every viewer will be inspired and empowered to be thoughtful, compelling participants in the global conversation about Israel," Staver assured.
Over the next few months, Why Israel Matters will air every Tuesday at 7:30 PT on TBN to divulge new pieces of the puzzle to solve the mystery as to what makes Israel the focal point of the Bible – and the history of the entire world.
