Two prominent Congressman, Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson, traversed the length and breadth of the Heartland of Israel in less than one week with the Yes Israel Project. They went on the Path of the Pilgrims, a massive archaeology project right outside the Old City of Jerusalem, that leads right up to the Temple Mount.
They saw the settlements in Hebron, in the area where David fled from King Saul, and the areas of Samaria where the kingdom of the Jewish people split – a few generations after King Solomon. This was not a politically correct trip, but one built to educate and inspire.
They began in the Jordan Valley where the Jewish people first entered the Land of Israel, and then saw the Bible come alive throughout their trip.
Not all American politicians understand how critical the Judea-Samaria areas are to the beginning of the story of the Judeo-Christian ethics that the Western World is based on. But these two do understand.
King Saul was the first King of Israel and King David was the first one to build his Kingdom in Jerusalem. But King Solomon, King David’s son, was the first to build the Temple. His wisdom and the ethics of the Bible are what we live by to this very day.
Monotheism began with the Jewish people, in Judea and Samaria, and then with God taking His Chosen People out of Egypt and bringing them through the desert to the Promised Land. For most of the world, monotheism began around 2,000 years ago. But for the Jewish people, it goes back nearly 4,000 years.
It all started here.
