An unusual new television series, a cooperative effort of three Christian organizations, explores the modern miracle that is Israel, and its role as an incarnation of God’s Biblical promise – from a Christian point of view. Providing an intimate look at Israel’s history, culture and modern-day life, it allows Christians an insider’s view of the unique Jewish journey.

The one-of-a-kind series was produced by Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), the world’s largest religious television network, along with Christians in Defense of Israel (CIDI), and Liberty Counsel. The 13-part show, called “Why Israel Matters”, is aimed at demonstrating to Christians the living embodiment of Biblical promise in Israel.

“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,” said TBN Chairman Matt Crouch.

And I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:3

“Even though I have lived with this series for over two years and reviewed the rough cut version, I was still moved by the impact of this powerful story about Jews being drawn to Israel from around the world,” Mat Staver, chairman of Christians in Defense of Israel and Liberty Counsel, told the Jerusalem Post.

“There has never been a more important time for Christians and others of goodwill across America and around the world to stand in solidarity with the nation and people of Israel,” said Staver.

Mati Shoshani, an Israeli expert on the country’s history and the director of operations at TBN, narrated the video, leading the viewer through the country he clearly loves. He emphasized that the goal of the series was more personal than political.

“These aren’t political organizations,” Shoshani told Breaking Israel News. “There was no ulterior motive. We didn’t want to prove anything.
