Series: “The Stones Cry Out (2012)”
In recent decades, many marvelous, new archaeological discoveries have greatly illuminated and validated the biblical record. In order to film the archaeological sites and interview the experts, Zola Levitt, Thomas McCall, and the production crew of Zola Levitt Presents journeyed to Israel and Jordan. We found that, just as our Lord said about this remarkable Land, indeed The Stones Cry Out. (Luke 19:40) Myles and Katharine Weiss host this encore presentation, examining the archaeological discoveries that shed light on the Bible.
Episode: “Truth from the Stones”
In this final of 12 episodes, Zola discusses how the archaeological artifacts shown throughout this series illuminate Scripture, and how Believers can be encouraged when The Stones Cry Out.

  • 00:52 Myles: AND WE ARE COMPLETING
  • 00:53 OUR SERIES TODAY,
  • 00:54 "THE STONES CRY OUT."
  • 00:55 REMEMBER LUKE 19:40,
  • 00:57 JESUS HIMSELF ON HIS WAY
  • 00:59 INTO JERUSALEM, AS THE DISCIPLES
  • 01:01 WERE PRAISING HIM AND
  • 01:02 THANKING GOD FOR HIS ARRIVAL,
  • 01:04 THE PHARISEES CAME AND SAID,
  • 01:06 "DON'T LET THEM DO THAT."
  • 01:07 HE SAID IF THEY DID NOT
  • 01:08 PRAISE HIM,
  • 01:09 THE VERY ROCKS WOULD CRY OUT,
  • 01:11 THE STONES WOULD CRY OUT.
  • 01:12 WELL, NOT ONLY SO DO WE GET
  • 01:14 TO PRAISE HIM IN THIS LIFE
  • 01:17 BUT THE ROCKS, THE STONES
  • 01:18 IN ISRAEL ARE TELLING THE STORY
  • 01:20 OF THE GOD OF ABRAHAM,
  • 01:22 ISAAC AND JACOB, VERIFYING
  • 01:23 THE REALITY OF THE BIBLE
  • 01:25 AND THE REALITY OF
  • 01:27 THE JEWISH PRESENCE IN THE LAND.
  • 01:28 AND THIS IS THE 12th IN A SERIES
  • 01:30 THAT WE'VE SEEN ALL
  • 01:31 OF THESE THINGS COME TO PASS.
  • 01:32 Katharine: IT'S BEEN
  • 01:33 VERY POPULAR WITH OUR VIEWERS.
  • 01:35 WE THANK YOU FOR WATCHING,
  • 01:37 WE THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING,
  • 01:39 WE THANK YOU FOR GIVING
  • 01:41 TO THIS MINISTRY SO WE CONTINUE
  • 01:43 TO BRING YOU THESE MESSAGES
  • 01:45 ABOUT THE LAND OF ISRAEL,
  • 01:46 THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL
  • 01:47 AND THE HISTORY ABOUT ISRAEL
  • 01:49 AND THE FUTURE.
  • 01:50 Myles: YES, THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 01:52 YOU KNOW, THESE PROGRAMS
  • 01:53 WERE ORIGINALLY PRODUCED
  • 01:54 IN THE 1990s AND SINCE THAT TIME
  • 01:56 THERE HAVE BEEN
  • 01:57 EVEN MORE DISCOVERIES MADE
  • 01:58 THAT AGAIN MAKE US UNDERSTAND
  • 02:01 THAT GOD'S WORD IS TRUE.
  • 02:03 ARCHAEOLOGY VERIFIES
  • 02:06 THE REALITY OF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 02:07 SO NOW, LET'S GO TO ISRAEL
  • 02:09 WHERE ZOLA LEVITT INTERVIEWED
  • 02:11 DR. DANNY BAHAT.
  • 02:15 Danny: AT FIRST WHAT WE SEE HERE
  • 02:16 IS THE WESTERN WALL
  • 02:17 TO OUR RIGHT-HAND SIDE.
  • 02:19 THIS IS ACTUALLY THE LAST POINT
  • 02:20 IN IT AND IT IS
  • 02:22 ALL CARVED IN THE ROCK BECAUSE
  • 02:24 HEROD THE GREAT REALLY DESTROYED
  • 02:27 EVERYTHING WHICH WAS BEFORE HIM.
  • 02:29 AND WHAT HE DID WAS
  • 02:32 TO PUT HERE DOWN BELOW
  • 02:34 IT IS NATURAL ROCK
  • 02:35 AND TO BRING ONE COURSE
  • 02:37 OF STONES, WHICH WAS HERE.
  • 02:38 Zola: OH, THIS IS ON TOP
  • 02:39 OF THE BEDROCK.
  • 02:40 Danny: YES, THAT'S BEDROCK.
  • 02:41 DOWN BELOW THIS IS BEDROCK,
  • 02:43 AND ABOVE IT, THE BUILDERS.
  • 02:44 BUT THE MOST EXCITING OF ALL
  • 02:46 THE STONES IN THE WESTERN WALL
  • 02:47 IS THE ONE WHICH YOU SEE HERE
  • 02:49 BECAUSE HERE YOU CAN SEE HOW
  • 02:50 HE BROUGHT IT FROM THE QUARRY.
  • 02:53 SEE, COMPLETELY ROUGH.
  • 02:54 DO YOU SEE THE CONCENTRIC
  • 02:56 MOVEMENTS OF THE CHISELS
  • 02:57 WHERE THEY SMOOTH IT?
  • 02:59 AND HERE IT IS ALREADY FINISHED.
  • 03:00 THIS IS THE ONLY STONE
  • 03:01 ALONG THE ENTIRE STORY
  • 03:03 WHERE YOU CAN SEE ON ONE STONE,
  • 03:05 YOU CAN SEE THIS...
  • 03:06 YOU CAN SEE THIS...
  • 03:07 AND YOU CAN SEE THAT.
  • 03:08 Zola: OH, YES.
  • 03:09 Danny: SO IT SHOWS US THAT
  • 03:10 ACTUALLY ALL THE STONES
  • 03:11 WERE HEWN WHEN THEY WERE
  • 03:13 ALREADY INSTALLED IN PLACE.
  • 03:14 Zola: I SEE.
  • 03:15 Danny: YOU UNDERSTAND IT--
  • 03:16 HE BROUGHT IT ROUGHLY,
  • 03:18 HE WORKED ON IT ON SITE,
  • 03:20 AND HERE IT IS
  • 03:21 THE FINAL SHAPE OF IT.
  • 03:22 Zola: HMM.
  • 03:23 ABOVE GROUND RECENT DIGS HAVE
  • 03:24 UNEARTHED FURTHER TESTIMONY
  • 03:26 SUPPORTING THE BIBLICAL RECORD.
  • 03:28 DR. THOMAS McCALL,
  • 03:29 OUR MINISTRY'S
  • 03:30 CONSULTING THEOLOGIAN, JOINED
  • 03:32 ARCHAEOLOGIST YA'AKOV BILLIG
  • 03:34 TO EXPLORE THE EVIDENCE FOR
  • 03:35 A ROMAN CONQUEST OF THE JEWS
  • 03:38 AND THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 03:39 2,000 YEARS AGO.
  • 03:41 Tom: YA'AKOV, CAN YOU TELL ME
  • 03:43 ABOUT THESE LARGE STONES
  • 03:44 THAT HAVE BEEN STACKED UP THERE?
  • 03:47 Ya'akov: THESE ARE SOME
  • 03:49 OF THE ORIGINAL STONES
  • 03:50 THAT WERE ORIGINALLY BUILT
  • 03:53 ON THE WESTERN WALL.
  • 03:56 WHAT WE SEE OF THE
  • 03:57 HERODIAN WESTERN WALL IS MAYBE
  • 03:59 40% OF THE ORIGINAL HEIGHT.
  • 04:03 BEFOREHAND, WHEN THE WALL WAS
  • 04:04 CONSTRUCTED, IT REACHED ABOUT
  • 04:07 35 METERS ABOVE STREET LEVEL.
  • 04:11 NOW, WHEN THE WALL
  • 04:12 WAS CONSTRUCTED,
  • 04:15 ALL THESE STONES WERE WAY UP
  • 04:16 HIGH UP THERE ON THE TOP.
  • 04:18 AND WHEN THE ROMANS DECIDED
  • 04:19 TO DESTROY THE TEMPLE MOUNT,
  • 04:21 THEY JUST DISLODGED THEM
  • 04:23 AND ROLLED THEM DOWN,
  • 04:24 ONE AFTER THE OTHER.
  • 04:25 AND THIS IS WHAT'S LEFT
  • 04:27 OF THE PILE OF THE DESTRUCTION
  • 04:29 OF THE WESTERN WALL STONES.
  • 04:31 Tom: SO THESE HAVE BEEN HERE
  • 04:33 SINCE THE YEAR 70, AND UH--
  • 04:36 Ya'akov: THESE HAVE BEEN HERE
  • 04:37 SINCE THE YEAR 70,
  • 04:38 MAYBE A BIT LATER.
  • 04:40 I GUESS THE ROMAN SOLDIERS,
  • 04:41 IN THEIR LEISURE,
  • 04:42 TOOK ONE OR TWO STONES EVERY DAY
  • 04:44 AS THEIR PROJECT AND CONTINUED
  • 04:46 TO ROLL THEM DOWN UNTIL THEY
  • 04:48 JUST COULDN'T GET ANY MORE.
  • 04:50 Zola: THE TEMPLE WAS
  • 04:51 THE LARGEST HOLY SANCTUARY
  • 04:53 EVER CONSTRUCTED BY HUMAN HANDS.
  • 04:56 THE MASSIVE STONES USED
  • 04:58 FOR ITS RETAINING WALLS WEIGH
  • 04:59 BETWEEN FOUR AND FIVE TONS EACH.
  • 05:05 JESUS PROPHESIED THIS
  • 05:06 DESTRUCTION IN MATTHEW 24:2,
  • 05:09 SAYING:
  • 05:16 ANOTHER TEMPLE ON MT. GERIZIM
  • 05:18 IS INFERRED IN JOHN 4:20
  • 05:20 BY A SAMARITAN WOMAN
  • 05:21 TALKING WITH JESUS.
  • 05:23 DISCUSSING THE APPROPRIATE
  • 05:24 PLACE FOR WORSHIP, SHE SAID:
  • 05:33 FOR OUR PROGRAM TITLED
  • 05:34 "A TALE OF TWO TEMPLES"
  • 05:36 WE TRAVELED TO MT. GERIZIM.
  • 05:37 Ken Berg: SO, RONEN,
  • 05:38 WHAT DO WE HAVE NOW?
  • 05:39 Zola: HERE ARCHAEOLOGIST
  • 05:41 RONEN BITAN PRESENTED
  • 05:42 ASTONISHING FINDINGS
  • 05:44 TO OUR PRODUCER, KEN BERG.
  • 05:45 Ronen: THE TIME OF THE TEMPLE.
  • 05:47 Zola: THIS STONE WAS INSCRIBED
  • 05:48 WITH THE WORD "SACRIFICE"
  • 05:50 EVIDENCE OF WHICH WAS FOUND
  • 05:51 INSIDE THE ANCIENT WALLS.
  • 05:53 Ronen Bitan: IT IS THE BURN
  • 05:54 FROM THE SACRIFICIAL
  • 05:57 DURING THE TIMES OF THE TEMPLE.
  • 05:58 Ken: THE SACRIFICE?
  • 06:00 Ronen: DURING THE TIMES OF
  • 06:01 THE TEMPLE--LOOK HERE, THE ASH.
  • 06:05 LET'S GO NOW
  • 06:06 AND SEE THE AREA ITSELF.
  • 06:09 THE ALTAR WAS PROBABLY
  • 06:10 SOMEWHERE HERE.
  • 06:11 WE DIDN'T DISCOVER IT YET,
  • 06:13 BUT LOOK INSIDE HERE.
  • 06:14 THIS GROUND IS SO BLACK.
  • 06:16 IT IS FULL WITH THE REMAINS,
  • 06:19 REMAINS OF THE TREES BURNED
  • 06:21 AND REMAINS OF THE BONES
  • 06:24 OF ALL THESE ANIMALS
  • 06:25 THAT WERE SACRIFICED HERE.
  • 06:28 LOOK AT THIS.
  • 06:29 THIS IS A PIECE OF A GOAT.
  • 06:31 Ken: WHAT KIND OF ANIMALS
  • 06:32 DID THEY SACRIFICE?
  • 06:33 Ronen: WELL, THEY SACRIFICED
  • 06:35 ONLY PIGEONS, ONLY GOATS,
  • 06:37 AND ONLY SHEEP.
  • 06:38 THIS IS ACCORDING TO WHAT
  • 06:39 IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.
  • 06:42 Ken: SO THIS WOULD NOT BE THE
  • 06:44 ACTUAL LOCATION FOR THE ALTAR.
  • 06:47 IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE DISCARDS
  • 06:48 OF WHAT WAS USED AT THE--
  • 06:49 Ronen: SOMEBODY THREW HERE
  • 06:51 ALL THE REMAINS FROM THE ALTAR.
  • 06:53 PROBABLY HE DID IT BECAUSE
  • 06:54 THEY WERE HOLY, AS THEY DO TODAY
  • 06:56 TO TORAH BOOKS.
  • 06:57 THEY WILL NEVER THROW THEM AWAY
  • 07:00 TO THE GARBAGE.
  • 07:01 THEY WILL ALWAYS BURY THEM.
  • 07:02 THIS IS PROBABLY
  • 07:03 WHAT THEY DID HERE.
  • 07:04 THEY BURIED ALL THESE REMAINS
  • 07:07 AND THEN THEY PUT GROUND
  • 07:08 ALL OVER IT.
  • 07:10 IT WAS HOLY; THEY COULDN'T
  • 07:11 JUST THROW IT AWAY.
  • 07:12 THEY HAD TO GET RID OF IT
  • 07:13 SOMEHOW TO BUILD HERE.
  • 07:15 Katharine: THE STONES CRY OUT
  • 07:16 EVERYWHERE IN ISRAEL, NOT ONLY
  • 07:18 WITHIN THE TUNNELS
  • 07:19 OF THE TEMPLE MOUNT AND
  • 07:21 THE GATES OF THE MT. GERIZIM,
  • 07:24 BUT PLACES LIKE HAZOR
  • 07:26 PROVIDE EVIDENCE
  • 07:28 THAT THE BIBLE'S NARRATIVE
  • 07:29 IS COMPLETELY ACCURATE.
  • 07:31 JOSHUA 11:11 READS:
  • 07:34 "AND THEY SMOTE ALL THE SOULS
  • 07:36 THAT WERE THEREIN HAZOR
  • 07:38 WITH THE EDGE OF THE SWORD,
  • 07:40 UTTERLY DESTROYING THEM:
  • 07:42 THERE WAS NOT ANY LEFT
  • 07:44 TO BREATHE: AND HE," JOSHUA,
  • 07:46 "BURNT HAZOR WITH FIRE."
  • 07:48 TOM SPEAKS WITH
  • 07:50 THE EXPERT AT HAZOR,
  • 07:51 ARCHAEOLOGIST AMNON BEN-TOR.
  • 07:55 Tom McCall: THERE'S EVIDENCE
  • 07:56 OF DEFINITE DESTRUCTION
  • 07:59 OF THE CITY OF HAZOR.
  • 08:01 Amnon Ben-tor: THERE IS EVIDENCE
  • 08:02 OF A MASSIVE DESTRUCTION.
  • 08:04 I ONCE CALLED IT "THE MOTHER
  • 08:05 OF ALL DESTRUCTIONS."
  • 08:06 IN HAZOR, WHEREVER YOU
  • 08:08 COME DOWN TO THE END
  • 08:10 OF THE CANAANITE STRATA,
  • 08:12 YOU COME UPON THIS DESTRUCTION.
  • 08:14 IT IS AN UNBELIEVABLE
  • 08:15 DESTRUCTION, WHICH IS FOUND
  • 08:18 AGAIN EVERYWHERE AND LEFT BEHIND
  • 08:20 THICK DEBRIS OF ASHES.
  • 08:22 THERE WAS A TERRIBLE FIRE
  • 08:24 IN THE PALACE; SO MUCH SO,
  • 08:26 THAT THE BRICKS LIQUIFIED.
  • 08:30 SOME OF THE VESSELS,
  • 08:31 THE CLAY VESSELS, MELTED.
  • 08:33 WE CAN CLEARLY SAY THAT
  • 08:34 THE TEMPERATURE WAS MORE
  • 08:35 THAN 1,200 DEGREES CENTIGRADE.
  • 08:37 WHEN A NORMAL FIRE IS HALF;
  • 08:40 IT'S ABOUT 600 TO 700 DEGREES.
  • 08:42 SO HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?
  • 08:45 WE FOUND EVIDENCE OF A LOT
  • 08:47 OF TIMBER WHICH WAS USED IN
  • 08:49 THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE PALACE.
  • 08:51 SO, THIS IS NUMBER ONE.
  • 08:52 TWO, IF YOU LOOK AT THESE
  • 08:54 ENORMOUS JARS, THIS ONE HERE,
  • 08:56 THIS COMES FROM THE PALACE
  • 08:57 AND WE HAVE DOZENS OF THEM
  • 08:58 IN THE PALACE, IN SOME OF THEM,
  • 09:00 MAYBE ALL OF THEM,
  • 09:01 BUT IN SOME WE CAN PROVE IT,
  • 09:02 THEY CONTAINED OIL.
  • 09:04 THE OIL IS NOT THERE ANYMORE,
  • 09:06 BUT THE SPILLAGE AND THE FIRE
  • 09:07 LEFT VERY, VERY
  • 09:09 DISTINCTIVE MARKS.
  • 09:11 SO, YOU HAVE TIMBER,
  • 09:12 YOU HAVE OIL AND YOU TOLD ME
  • 09:14 YOU WERE AT HAZOR, IF YOU
  • 09:16 WERE THERE IN THE AFTERNOON
  • 09:18 DO YOU REMEMBER THE WIND?
  • 09:19 THE WIND THERE IS UNBELIEVABLE
  • 09:21 AT HAZOR.
  • 09:22 PUT THESE THREE TOGETHER,
  • 09:23 YOU'LL GET THIS KIND OF FIRE.
  • 09:26 Myles: ZIPPORI WAS A CITY
  • 09:27 LOCATED NEAR NAZARETH.
  • 09:29 IT IS BELIEVED THAT JESUS
  • 09:30 WOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT ZIPPORI
  • 09:32 AND POSSIBLY EVEN WORKED THERE
  • 09:33 WITH HIS FATHER AS IT WAS
  • 09:34 AN AREA THAT WAS UNDERGOING
  • 09:36 AN IMMENSE BUILDING PROGRAM.
  • 09:38 CARPENTRY WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 09:39 A POPULAR TRADE HERE IN ZIPPORI.
  • 09:41 DR. McCALL JOINS MITCH PILCER
  • 09:44 OF THE ZIPPORI NATIONAL PARK.
  • 09:47 Tom: AS SEEN FROM NAZARETH,
  • 09:49 AN ANCIENT STRUCTURE ACTS AS
  • 09:50 A GRAVESTONE
  • 09:52 MARKING THE REMAINS
  • 09:53 OF THIS ONCE-GREAT CITY.
  • 09:57 A MAGNIFICENT METROPOLIS OF
  • 09:58 THE GRECO-ROMAN TRADITION,
  • 10:01 THIS PRESTIGIOUS GOVERNMENTAL
  • 10:02 CENTER WAS ALSO A HUB
  • 10:04 OF JEWISH RELIGIOUS ACTIVITY.
  • 10:06 IT HAD A THRIVING
  • 10:07 AGRICULTURAL TRADE,
  • 10:08 BOASTED EXQUISITE MOSAICS
  • 10:12 AND HAD AN IMPRESSIVE THEATRE.
  • 10:15 WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS
  • 10:16 THAT THE GOSPELS BRING OUT
  • 10:17 THAT MIGHT SUGGEST
  • 10:18 THAT JESUS HAD BEEN EXPOSED
  • 10:19 TO THIS KIND OF CULTURE?
  • 10:21 Mitch Pilcer: OKAY, FOR ONE,
  • 10:22 HE USES LOTS OF GREEK WORDS,
  • 10:24 OKAY, GREEK WORDS WHICH HE WOULD
  • 10:25 HAVE NO WAY TO PICK THEM UP
  • 10:27 IN A LITTLE TOWN OF NAZARETH.
  • 10:28 HE WOULD HAVE TO COME
  • 10:29 TO A CITY WHERE THERE WAS
  • 10:30 A SIZABLE GREEK POPULATION
  • 10:32 AND HE EVEN USES WORDS
  • 10:34 THAT ARE CONNECTED TO
  • 10:35 THE THEATRE LIKE "HYPOCRITE."
  • 10:36 "HYPOCRITE" WAS A TERM
  • 10:37 THAT MEANT ACTOR MOSTLY
  • 10:39 AND SOME OTHER MEANINGS.
  • 10:40 ALSO, WE CAN TAKE INTO ACCOUNT
  • 10:42 WHEN WE SEE EVEN LIKE
  • 10:43 HIS STAGING, THE WAY THAT HE
  • 10:44 SET UP THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT,
  • 10:46 OKAY, IT WAS DONE IN THE WHOLE
  • 10:48 STYLE OF THE THEATRE.
  • 10:50 Zola: MITCH'S REFERENCE
  • 10:51 TO STAGING INFERS THAT JUST
  • 10:53 AS AN ACTOR WOULD DELIVER
  • 10:55 HIS LINES FROM THIS STAGE
  • 10:56 TO THE AUDIENCE ABOVE,
  • 10:58 JESUS, TAKING A PAGE
  • 10:59 FROM THE SEPPHORIS THEATRE
  • 11:01 MOST LIKELY DELIVERED
  • 11:02 HIS SERMON ON THE MOUNT
  • 11:03 FROM BELOW THE HILLSIDE
  • 11:05 AT THE MOUNT OF BEATITUDES.
  • 11:07 PREVIOUS PROGRAMS HAVE
  • 11:08 DEMONSTRATED HOW THE SOUND
  • 11:09 RESONATES EFFORTLESSLY
  • 11:11 UP THE HILLSIDE.
  • 11:12 ( Man Speaking Hebrew )
  • 11:17 >> "BLESSED ARE THE MEEK FOR
  • 11:19 THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH."
  • 11:20 ( Speaking Hebrew )
  • 11:28 Zola: "BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH
  • 11:29 DO HUNGER AND THIRST
  • 11:30 AFTER RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • 11:32 FOR THEY SHALL BE FILLED."
  • 11:33 FROM THIS EXAMPLE,
  • 11:35 "THE SERMON BELOW THE MOUNT"
  • 11:36 MIGHT HAVE BEEN
  • 11:37 A MORE APPROPRIATE TITLE
  • 11:38 FOR CHRIST'S MAGNIFICENT
  • 11:39 TREATISE ON GODLY LIVING.
  • 11:43 Katharine: UNLIKE ZIPPORI,
  • 11:44 CAESAREA IS MENTIONED OFTEN
  • 11:46 IN SCRIPTURE AND THERE WE FIND
  • 11:48 EXQUISITE PROOF
  • 11:50 OF BIBLE ACCURACY.
  • 11:54 Zola: JUST SOUTH OF THE HARBOR
  • 11:55 ARCHAEOLOGISTS HAVE RECENTLY
  • 11:56 UNEARTHED THIS LARGE ARENA
  • 11:58 OR HIPPODROME.
  • 11:59 IT MEASURES 300 YARDS IN LENGTH
  • 12:01 BY 80 YARDS IN WIDTH AND WAS
  • 12:03 ONE OF THE LARGEST GATHERING
  • 12:05 PLACES FOR PUBLIC EVENTS,
  • 12:07 SUCH AS CHARIOT RACES
  • 12:08 AND ATHLETIC COMPETITIONS.
  • 12:10 A "BEMA" OR "JUDGMENT SEAT" WAS
  • 12:12 FOUND AT ONE END OF THE ARENA.
  • 12:15 IN ACTS 25,
  • 12:16 THE ROMAN GOVERNOR FELIX...
  • 12:24 Avner: THERE, A PUBLIC HEARING
  • 12:26 WOULD TAKE PLACE, WHEN THE JEWS
  • 12:28 COMPLAINED AGAINST THE GENTILES.
  • 12:30 PROBABLY, IF PETER WAS--
  • 12:34 A TRIAL, AND IT WAS
  • 12:36 A PUBLIC HEARING, IT WOULD BE
  • 12:38 IN FRONT OF THIS BEMA.
  • 12:39 Tom: WELL, WE KNOW THAT
  • 12:40 THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS TRIED
  • 12:42 BEFORE THE ROMAN GOVERNOR.
  • 12:44 IS IT POSSIBLE THAT IT MIGHT
  • 12:46 HAVE BEEN AT THE BEMA?
  • 12:47 Avner: YES, PAUL MIGHT'VE
  • 12:48 BEEN TRIED EITHER THERE
  • 12:50 OR IN THE COURTHOUSE.
  • 12:52 AND AS FOR THE COURTHOUSE,
  • 12:54 IF IT WASN'T IN THE GOVERNOR'S
  • 12:55 PALACE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CLOSER
  • 12:58 BY NOT FAR FROM THE HIPPODROME.
  • 13:01 WE FOUND--WE EXPOSED
  • 13:02 A MUNICIPALITY CENTER IN THE--
  • 13:05 BECAUSE WE FOUND
  • 13:06 BELOW THIS COURTHOUSE,
  • 13:09 SOME UNDERGROUND ROADS,
  • 13:11 PROBABLY SOME PRISONERS' WORK,
  • 13:12 BEING KEPT THERE
  • 13:13 BEFORE BEING TRIED
  • 13:14 OR AFTER BEING TRIED.
  • 13:16 IF PAUL HAD BEEN TRIED THERE,
  • 13:18 AND WE KNOW FROM THE SCRIPTURE
  • 13:20 THAT HE WAS KEPT IN PRISON;
  • 13:21 IT MIGHT BE
  • 13:23 THIS IS ONE OF THE CANDIDATES
  • 13:25 THAT CANNOT BE RULED OUT.
  • 13:27 Zola: ALSO FOUND IN THE RUINS
  • 13:28 OF CAESAREA WAS THE NAME
  • 13:29 OF A FAMOUS NEW TESTAMENT RULER.
  • 13:32 THIS STONE INSCRIPTION
  • 13:33 ASSERTS THE HISTORIC VALIDITY
  • 13:35 OF THE JUDEAN PROCURATOR,
  • 13:37 PONTIUS PILATE.

  • 15:14 Katharine: YOU KNOW, THE LAST
  • 15:15 TIME WE WERE THERE IN ISRAEL
  • 15:17 WAS LAST SUMMER AND WE HAD
  • 15:19 AN AMAZING TIME WITH THE PEOPLE
  • 15:20 THAT CAME WITH US.
  • 15:22 NOT ONLY THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES
  • 15:23 BUT WE WERE ABLE TO FIND
  • 15:24 AN AMAZING TREASURE.
  • 15:26 WE FOUND A MACCABEAN
  • 15:27 TEMPLE COIN.
  • 15:30 AND DURING THE TIME OF OUR DIG
  • 15:31 TOGETHER AS A GROUP
  • 15:33 ONE OF OUR PILGRIMS FOUND
  • 15:35 THIS COIN, AND I TELL YOU,
  • 15:38 THE ARCHAEOLOGISTS WATCH OVER US
  • 15:40 AS WE DO THE DIG SO THAT
  • 15:41 WE DON'T DO ANYTHING WRONG.
  • 15:42 BUT HIS FACE LIT UP LIKE
  • 15:45 WE HAD HIT THE LOTTERY
  • 15:47 WHICH WE HAD BECAUSE WE'RE
  • 15:48 CONTINUING TO ESTABLISH
  • 15:50 THE PRESENCE
  • 15:51 OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 15:53 AND THIS CERTIFICATE,
  • 15:54 IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP US
  • 15:55 STAND WITH THE PEOPLE
  • 15:56 IN THE TEMPLE MOUNT
  • 15:58 AND ESTABLISH THE TRUTH
  • 15:59 OF THE BIBLE, WE WOULD LOVE
  • 16:01 TO SEND IT TO YOU.
  • 16:03 IT'S JUST A WONDERFUL WAY
  • 16:05 OF JUST SAYING, "WE STAND
  • 16:06 WITH YOU, ISRAEL, WE STAND
  • 16:07 WITH THE RECLAIMING OF WHAT
  • 16:09 GOD HAS ALREADY CLAIMED."
  • 16:10 Myles: EXACTLY, IT'S REALLY
  • 16:11 A CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION
  • 16:13 FOR YOUR INVESTMENT
  • 16:14 IN OUR TEMPLE MOUNT FUND
  • 16:15 WHICH GOES TO SUPPORT
  • 16:16 THE ARCHAEOLOGISTS
  • 16:18 AND IT'S VERY MUCH LIKE
  • 16:19 THE CERTIFICATE THAT
  • 16:20 THIS YOUNG MAN RECEIVED WHEN
  • 16:21 HE FOUND THE MACCABEAN COIN.
  • 16:23 SO LET'S GO TO DR. TOM McCALL
  • 16:25 WITH DR. AVRAHAM BIRAN,
  • 16:28 THE ARCHAEOLOGIST WHO FOUND
  • 16:29 THE DAVIDIC STONE
  • 16:31 UP IN TEL DAN.
  • 16:34 Avraham Biran: YOU SEE THE
  • 16:35 WORDS ARE SEPARATED BY DOTS.
  • 16:37 NOW THE EXCITING THING IS
  • 16:38 WHEN YOU FIND SUDDENLY
  • 16:40 AN EXPRESSION,
  • 16:41 WHICH YOU KNOW VERY WELL
  • 16:42 FROM THE BIBLE,
  • 16:43 LIKE "MELECH YISRAEL",
  • 16:44 "THE KING OF ISRAEL".
  • 16:46 THE WORD "MELECH"...
  • 16:47 KING...
  • 16:48 "YISRAEL"...
  • 16:49 OF ISRAEL.
  • 16:51 "KING OF ISRAEL" WRITTEN
  • 16:53 IN ANCIENT ARAMAIC SCRIPT.
  • 16:56 AND BELOW THAT, ANOTHER LINE
  • 16:59 AND YOU HAVE THE LAST LETTER
  • 17:02 OF THE WORD "KING"...
  • 17:03 OF THE WORD "MELECH"
  • 17:05 SIMILAR TO THE ONE BEFORE,
  • 17:06 THE LAST LETTER OF THE WORD,
  • 17:08 "KING"...
  • 17:09 HALF "MELECH"
  • 17:10 AND THEN NEXT TO IT
  • 17:11 IS "BEIT"...
  • 17:13 "BEIT JUDAH"...
  • 17:15 "BEIT"..."HOUSE"...
  • 17:16 "DAVID"...
  • 17:17 "HOUSE OF DAVID"
  • 17:20 WITHOUT THE DOT BETWEEN;
  • 17:22 NOW THAT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE
  • 17:23 THAT EXPRESSION "BEIT DAVID,"
  • 17:27 "HOUSE OF DAVID" WAS APPARENTLY
  • 17:29 A KNOWN EXPRESSION.
  • 17:32 Zola: DR. BIRAN RESPONDS TO
  • 17:33 THE SCHOLARS WHO QUESTION THE
  • 17:35 IMPACT OF THIS INCREDIBLE FIND.
  • 17:38 Dr. Biran: THERE ARE SCHOLARS
  • 17:40 WHO HAVE THEORIES THAT MOST OF
  • 17:43 THE HISTORICAL EVENTS MENTIONED
  • 17:46 IN THE BIBLE ARE POSSIBLY
  • 17:50 LATE INVENTIONS AND WERE NOT SO.
  • 17:54 AND SINCE THE HOUSE OF DAVID
  • 17:57 FOR EXAMPLE, THE NAME,
  • 17:58 THE EXPRESSION,
  • 17:59 AND THE NAME "DAVID,"
  • 18:00 FOR THAT MATTER,
  • 18:01 WAS NEVER FOUND OUTSIDE
  • 18:03 THE BIBLE, PEOPLE USED TO SAY,
  • 18:05 WELL, YOU KNOW,
  • 18:06 PEOPLE INVENTED A LEGEND.
  • 18:10 SO NOW YOU HAVE EVIDENCE
  • 18:13 ON STONE,
  • 18:15 ENGRAVED ON STONE OF
  • 18:17 THE EXPRESSION " BEIT DAVID,"
  • 18:19 "HOUSE OF DAVID."
  • 18:21 Myles: THE HOUSE OF DAVID STONE
  • 18:22 WAS FOUND HERE AT TEL DAN
  • 18:24 JUST OUTSIDE THE CITY GATE.
  • 18:27 WITHIN THE GATE MORE EVIDENCE
  • 18:28 WAS FOUND WHICH SUPPORTS
  • 18:29 THE BIBLICAL NARRATIVE.
  • 18:31 I KINGS 12:28-30,
  • 18:57 Zola: THIS IS THE ENTRANCE
  • 18:58 TO THE HIGH PLACE OR "BAMA"
  • 18:59 IN HEBREW.
  • 19:01 ENTERING THIS GATE, THE PEOPLE
  • 19:02 WOULD BRING THEIR OFFERINGS
  • 19:03 AND BULLS AND YOUNG CALVES
  • 19:04 FOR SACRIFICE.
  • 19:06 THE METAL FRAME SHOWS
  • 19:07 THE EXACT SIZE AND LOCATION
  • 19:09 OF THE ORIGINAL STONE ALTAR.
  • 19:11 PRIESTS WOULD ASCEND THE STEPS
  • 19:13 AND LAY THE ANIMAL ON THE FIRE
  • 19:14 OF THE ALTAR.
  • 19:16 A FLAT STONE PLATFORM COULD BE
  • 19:19 SEEN IN BACK OF THE METAL FRAME
  • 19:20 ON WHICH JEROBOAM PLACED
  • 19:22 THE GOLDEN CALF REFERRED TO
  • 19:23 IN I KINGS 12:28-31.
  • 19:28 Ross Voss: WE HAVE IN THE
  • 19:29 DESTRUCTION OF THE CITY OF DAN
  • 19:30 BY THE ASSYRIANS, WHO ENDED
  • 19:32 THE KINGDOM IN 733 B.C.E.,
  • 19:35 WE HAVE A ROOM WHERE AN ALTAR
  • 19:36 WAS FOUND WITH THE VESSELS
  • 19:38 USED IN THE SACRIFICE.
  • 19:40 WE HAVE THE IRON SHOVELS,
  • 19:42 THE CENSERS THAT TOOK THE COALS
  • 19:44 OFF THE ALTARS AND THE INCENSE
  • 19:46 OUT OF THE INCENSE ALTARS
  • 19:47 THAT WERE BURNED TO THE DEITY.
  • 19:50 AND WE HAVE A BEAUTIFUL BRONZE
  • 19:52 LIBATION BOWL WHICH WAS POURED
  • 19:53 AS AN OFFERING TO THE DEITY
  • 19:55 AS WELL.
  • 19:56 Tom: SO THIS VALIDATES
  • 19:57 THE HISTORICITY OF THE CULTIC
  • 20:00 WORSHIP THAT WAS DESCRIBED
  • 20:03 IN THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES?
  • 20:05 Ross: IT GIVES US OUR FIRST
  • 20:06 TANGIBLE EVIDENCE OF WHAT
  • 20:07 THE DIMENSIONS OF THE HIGH PLACE
  • 20:09 ARE LIKE.
  • 20:10 IF WE LOOK AT THE BIBLICAL
  • 20:11 DESCRIPTION OF THE TABERNACLE
  • 20:12 IN EXODUS IN THE TIME OF MOSES,
  • 20:14 AND WE LOOK AT THE MEASUREMENTS
  • 20:16 OF THE HIGH PLACE, THE ALTAR,
  • 20:18 WHICH WAS 10 CUBITS ON A SIDE,
  • 20:21 ROUGHLY 5 METERS OR
  • 20:23 ABOUT 5 YARDS TO A SIDE SQUARE,
  • 20:26 THAT WAS THE SIZE OR THE
  • 20:27 PRESCRIPTION FOR THE SIZE OF
  • 20:29 THE SACRIFICIAL ALTAR MENTIONED
  • 20:30 AT SINAI THAT MOSES WAS TO BUILD
  • 20:33 FOR THE BURNING OF THE SHEEP
  • 20:34 AND GOATS AND THE BULLS.
  • 20:36 AT DAN WE HAVE AN ALTAR THAT
  • 20:37 FITS EXACTLY THOSE DIMENSIONS.
  • 20:39 AND THEN THE ALTAR IN THE
  • 20:41 TABERNACLE IS TO BE 10 METERS
  • 20:43 IN FRONT OF THE TABERNACLE WHICH
  • 20:45 WAS THE TENT SHRINE THAT HOUSED
  • 20:46 THE ARK OF THE COVENANT.
  • 20:48 AND IN THE HIGH PLACE,
  • 20:50 WHAT WE CALL THE " BAMA ,"
  • 20:51 WE HAVE A PODIUM, WHICH IS
  • 20:52 EXACTLY OF THE SAME DIMENSIONS
  • 20:54 AS THE SIZE OF THE TABERNACLE
  • 20:56 OR THE TENT SHRINE
  • 20:57 NORTH OF THE ALTAR.
  • 21:00 SO THAT SHOWS US HERE,
  • 21:02 THAT IN ISRAELITE WORSHIP,
  • 21:04 THEY'RE FOLLOWING A FORMULA OR
  • 21:05 A PRESCRIPTION THAT GOES BACK TO
  • 21:07 AN ANCIENT TRADITION THAT WE CAN
  • 21:10 DEMONSTRATE EXISTS HERE AT DAN
  • 21:12 IN THE 9th CENTURY B.C.
  • 21:13 IN THE TIME OF KING AHAB.
  • 21:16 Zola: ARCHAEOLOGIST BOB MULLINS
  • 21:17 HAS EXCAVATED IN ISRAEL
  • 21:19 SINCE 1985.
  • 21:21 DURING ONE OF OUR PROGRAMS,
  • 21:22 HE EXPLAINED HOW HIS WORK
  • 21:23 IN ISRAEL HAS AFFECTED
  • 21:24 HIS FAITH.
  • 21:25 Bob Mullins: WHAT I ENJOY MOST
  • 21:26 ABOUT ARCHAEOLOGY,
  • 21:28 EVEN MORE THAN TRYING TO ANSWER
  • 21:30 SPECIFIC HISTORICAL QUESTIONS
  • 21:32 SUCH AS WAS THERE AN EXODUS,
  • 21:33 OR A CONQUEST
  • 21:34 AND THESE KINDS OF THINGS THAT
  • 21:35 ARE VERY MUCH AT THE FOREFRONT
  • 21:37 OF CONTROVERSY TODAY.
  • 21:38 IT'S THAT BROAD PICTURE.
  • 21:40 IT'S REALLY BEING ABLE
  • 21:42 TO PUT MYSELF IN A PLACE
  • 21:44 OF AN ANCIENT ISRAELITE,
  • 21:46 TO STAND IN THE HOUSE
  • 21:47 THAT THEY STOOD IN, TO SEE LIFE
  • 21:49 FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE.
  • 21:51 AND THIS, REALLY, I THINK,
  • 21:53 BRINGS ARCHAEOLOGY
  • 21:54 TO MUCH MORE OF A HUMAN LEVEL
  • 21:56 IS THAT I REALIZE THAT,
  • 21:58 YOU KNOW, THEY STRUGGLED
  • 21:59 WITH THE SAME ISSUES
  • 22:00 I STRUGGLE WITH AND IN MANY WAYS
  • 22:02 THEY HAD IT TOUGHER THAN ME,
  • 22:03 BECAUSE WE LIVE
  • 22:04 IN VERY COMFORTABLE,
  • 22:05 HEATED HOMES
  • 22:06 WITH WALL-TO-WALL CARPETING.
  • 22:09 THESE PEOPLE LIVED
  • 22:10 IN MUD-BRICK HOUSES THAT
  • 22:11 WERE ABOUT A FOURTH OF THE SIZE
  • 22:13 OF MANY OF OUR HOMES.
  • 22:14 THEY WERE COLD, LEAKY,
  • 22:17 THIS TIME OF THE YEAR
  • 22:18 WHERE WE GET RAINFALL
  • 22:19 AND COLD WINDS.
  • 22:20 I'M SURE MANY PEOPLE SUFFERED
  • 22:21 FROM THE COLD AND THE RAIN
  • 22:23 AND DIED OF DISEASES.
  • 22:25 SO THERE WAS FOR THEM, TOO,
  • 22:28 A REAL STRUGGLE OF FAITH.
  • 22:30 WHAT DOES IT MEAN
  • 22:31 TO REALLY TRUST IN GOD?
  • 22:33 THAT GOD IS HERE TO MEET
  • 22:34 MY NEEDS WHEN IT SEEMS
  • 22:36 THAT SOMETIMES THE ODDS OF LIFE
  • 22:38 ARE SO MUCH AGAINST ME.
  • 22:40 AND SO, I CAN SEE LIFE
  • 22:42 FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE
  • 22:43 AND THAT IN ITSELF WILL ENRICH
  • 22:44 MY FAITH.
  • 22:47 Zola: THESE ARE OSSUARIES,
  • 22:48 SMALL LIMESTONE DEPOSITORIES
  • 22:50 FOR THE BONES OF THE DEAD.
  • 22:52 THIS ANCIENT SYMBOL OF DEATH
  • 22:53 USED DURING THE TIME OF CHRIST
  • 22:55 ACTUALLY BRINGS SCRIPTURE
  • 22:56 TO LIFE.
  • 22:57 DR. MARTIN WILD, DIRECTOR
  • 22:59 OF THE ISRAEL MUSEUM, EXPLAINS.
  • 23:02 Martin Wild: AND SUCH BOXES,
  • 23:04 AFTER THE BONES WERE DEPOSITED
  • 23:06 IN THEM, USUALLY WERE THEN PUT
  • 23:08 INTO CAVES IN THE PROTECTED AREA
  • 23:11 WHERE SOMETIMES WHOLE FAMILIES
  • 23:13 KEPT TOGETHER THE BONES
  • 23:15 OF THEIR FAMILY.
  • 23:18 WE HAVE MANY.
  • 23:19 WE HAVE MAYBE HUNDREDS
  • 23:20 OF THOUSANDS OF BOXES LIKE
  • 23:21 THESE OSSUARIES THAT WERE FOUND
  • 23:23 IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 23:24 BUT THIS OSSUARY IS SO SPECIAL
  • 23:26 BECAUSE IT HAS AN INSCRIPTION
  • 23:28 WHICH MENTIONS THE BONES,
  • 23:31 THE NAME OF THE BONES
  • 23:32 OF THE PERSON
  • 23:33 THAT WAS BURIED IN THE BOX.
  • 23:35 THE NAME THAT IS MENTIONED
  • 23:36 IN HERE IS JOSEPHUS CAIAPHAS
  • 23:39 AND THE FAMILY OF CAIAPHAS
  • 23:41 IS WELL KNOWN TO US
  • 23:42 FROM SEVERAL SOURCES;
  • 23:44 THE FIRST SOURCE
  • 23:45 BEING THE TALMUD.
  • 23:47 WE KNOW ABOUT THE FAMILY
  • 23:49 THAT THEY WERE HIGH PRIESTS
  • 23:51 IN THE TEMPLE.
  • 23:52 THEY WERE NOT OFTEN LIKED AT
  • 23:53 THE PERIOD BUT IT WAS APPARENTLY
  • 23:56 A VERY ARISTOCRATIC FAMILY
  • 23:58 BELONGING TO THE GROUP OF JEWS
  • 24:00 WHO WERE CALLED THE SADDUCEES.
  • 24:03 THE SECOND CASE WE KNOW THE NAME
  • 24:05 FROM IS FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 24:07 Zola: ONE SUCH REFERENCE
  • 24:08 IS IN MATTHEW 26:57,
  • 24:18 ANOTHER OSSUARY HELD
  • 24:19 ONE-OF-A-KIND PHYSICAL EVIDENCE
  • 24:22 DECLARING THE ACCURACY
  • 24:23 OF GOD'S WORD.
  • 24:24 Joe Zias: PATHOLOGISTS PUT
  • 24:25 THE VOLUNTEERS ON CROSSES...
  • 24:27 Zola: FOR OUR PROGRAM
  • 24:28 ENTITLED "A MAN CRUCIFIED,"
  • 24:30 DR. McCALL SPOKE WITH
  • 24:32 ANTHROPOLOGIST JOE ZIAS.
  • 24:34 Joe: AND HERE WERE A SERIES
  • 24:36 OF OSSUARIES IN A JEWISH TOMB
  • 24:38 GOING BACK TO THE TIME
  • 24:39 OF CHRIST.
  • 24:41 AND IN ONE OF THE OSSUARIES,
  • 24:42 THEY FOUND A HEEL BONE.
  • 24:43 IT'S WHAT'S CALLED
  • 24:44 A "CALCANEUM" OF AN INDIVIDUAL.
  • 24:46 AND WHAT'S UNIQUE ABOUT THIS,
  • 24:48 IF YOU LOOK VERY CLEARLY,
  • 24:49 YOU CAN SEE THIS IS
  • 24:50 AN INDIVIDUAL WHICH HAD A NAIL
  • 24:52 WHICH IS DRIVEN LATERALLY
  • 24:54 THROUGH A PIECE OF WOOD.
  • 24:55 WE CAN STILL SEE TRACES
  • 24:56 OF OLIVE WOOD HERE
  • 24:57 AFTER 2,000 YEARS.
  • 24:58 IT THEN WENT LATERALLY
  • 25:00 INTO THE HEEL,
  • 25:02 AND THIS SIMPLY MAKES IT
  • 25:04 IMPOSSIBLE TO REMOVE
  • 25:06 SO THEY BURIED THIS INDIVIDUAL
  • 25:07 WITH THE NAIL IN HIS FOOT.
  • 25:08 YOU HAVE TO REALIZE THAT
  • 25:09 WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT HERE,
  • 25:10 YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE ONLY CASE
  • 25:11 IN THE WORLD.
  • 25:12 THERE IS NO OTHER CASE,
  • 25:13 WHATSOEVER, WHERE WE HAVE
  • 25:16 DIRECT PHYSICAL EVIDENCE
  • 25:17 OF CRUCIFIXION.
  • 25:18 (♪ Flute & Harp ♪)
  • 26:02 Katharine: IN THESE LAST DAYS,
  • 26:04 WE NEED TO BE AWARE OF ISRAEL
  • 26:07 AND AWARE OF GOD'S HEART
  • 26:09 FOR ISRAEL AND HIS VOICE
  • 26:11 THAT HE'S SPEAKING ABOUT ISRAEL.
  • 26:13 IT'S NOT TO REPLACE ISRAEL.
  • 26:15 IT'S NOT REVISIONIST THEORIES.
  • 26:17 IT'S NOT THAT THEY WERE
  • 26:20 NEVER THERE OR THEY DON'T
  • 26:21 HAVE A RIGHT TO BE THERE
  • 26:22 OR THEY SHOULD GO
  • 26:23 SOMEWHERE ELSE, BUT THEY
  • 26:25 ARE HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE
  • 26:27 TO STAND IN HIS PLACE.
  • 26:29 IT'S HIS LAND AND HE CHOSE
  • 26:31 THE JEWS TO STAY THERE.
  • 26:33 AND I JUST THINK OF MY SON
  • 26:35 WHO'S IN COLLEGE NOW
  • 26:36 IN UNIVERSITY AND HE'S ASKED
  • 26:38 HIS DAD, MAKE SURE
  • 26:40 YOUR LISTENERS REMEMBER
  • 26:42 THAT US COLLEGE STUDENTS NEED
  • 26:44 TO HEAR THIS MESSAGE
  • 26:45 MORE THAN EVER.
  • 26:46 Myles: YES, IT'S REALLY TRUE
  • 26:47 AND SO WE WANT TO REVIEW FOR YOU
  • 26:49 WHAT WE'VE SEEN HERE BY WAY
  • 26:51 OF NOT FALLING INTO ANY KIND
  • 26:53 OF DENIAL ABOUT THESE THINGS,
  • 26:55 THE ARCHAEOLOGY VERIFYING
  • 26:57 THE BIBLE.
  • 26:58 DAVID IS REAL,
  • 26:59 HIS DYNASTY WAS REAL,
  • 27:00 EVIDENCED BY THE DAVIDIC STONE
  • 27:02 IN TEL DAN.
  • 27:03 WE'VE SEEN THE REALITY OF HAZOR
  • 27:04 AND JOSHUA GOING TO DO BATTLE
  • 27:06 THERE; WE'VE SEEN THAT CAIAPHAS
  • 27:08 WAS REAL AND PONTIUS PILOT ALSO.
  • 27:11 AND ON AND ON, WE'VE SEEN
  • 27:12 THAT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY
  • 27:14 THESE STONES CRYING OUT
  • 27:15 JUST AS JESUS SAID THEY WOULD
  • 27:17 IN LUKE 19:40.
  • 27:19 THEY'RE CRYING OUT FOR YOU
  • 27:20 AND FOR ME
  • 27:21 AND FOR THE NEXT GENERATION.
  • 27:23 WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO BRING YOU
  • 27:24 THESE MESSAGES SO THAT WE
  • 27:26 AND OUR CHILDREN WILL KNOW
  • 27:28 THAT THESE THINGS ARE TRUE.
  • 27:29 WE DON'T WANT THIS
  • 27:30 TO EVER GET LOST.
  • 27:31 IT'S BEEN OUR PLEASURE
  • 27:32 AND OUR BLESSING TO BRING
  • 27:33 THESE PROGRAMS TO YOU
  • 27:35 AND WE'LL CONTINUE TO DO THIS
  • 27:36 AS YOU STAND WITH US AND AS
  • 27:38 WE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING.
  • 27:40 UNTIL WE SEE YOU AGAIN,
  • 27:42 AS ALWAYS WE WANT TO REMIND YOU,
  • 27:44 SHA'ALU SHALOM YERUSHALAYIM.
