CBN CEO Gordon Robertson introduced "In Our Hands: the Battle for Jerusalem" to more than 100 international Christian journalists at Israel's first-ever, government-sponsored Christian Media Conference Tuesday.
Speaking at the first of its kind conference for Christian media sponsored by the Israeli government, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told participants that Christians are Israel’s best friends.
The march was organized by the Israeli grassroots Women Wage Peace movement, and culminated in a rally of some 30,000 people in Jerusalem on Oct. 8. This year’s march was the second of its kind, the first having taken place last year.

Gitte Macbeth returned to Israel this year after an absence of 26 years, serving as a delegate from Denmark to the ICEJ Feast of Tabernacles. “I want to get closer to God,” Macbeth told KNI at the Feast's first plenary session.
Ron writes, "You must forgive me for the title of this blog, but I am just keeping it real! I mean, when your Israeli taxi driver has a revelation and exclaims biblical truth with joy that he has never known, it doesn’t always come out the way you might expect."
This year's biblical Feast of Tabernacles celebration in Israel also marks the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War, when Jerusalem was re-united under Israeli sovereignty. And CBN'S docudrama "In Our Hands" is taking festival goers back in time for that amazing story.
At a time of rising anti-Semitism, thousands of Christians are in Jerusalem to celebrate the biblical Feast of Tabernacles and stand with Israel. They came from the ends of the earth for the six-day celebration, sponsored by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ), answering an ancient invitation.
The 2017 event is the 38th annual gathering sponsored by ICEJ whose proclaimed calling is "to connect the global Church to Israel." The Feast can be viewed live online at ICEJ Live Streaming.
