Part 3 - Scattered Light
In this unit Rev. Dr. John Tweedie takes you back nearly 2000 years to A.D.70 when the Romans destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem. This was a watershed moment in Jewish history. It marked the beginning of a long period of Jewish dispersion and separation from their sacred homeland.
The destruction of Jerusalem also raised many questions about the Jews' seemingly uncertain future: Would they survive as a distinct, if dispersed people? And if so, how would God bless the nations through them?
In Part 3 of Israel: A Journey of Light you will discover how the Jews continued to be a light to the nations as Jewish researchers made some of the world's greatest scientific, medical and technological discoveries even during the darkest of times. You will also learn how Jewish cultural influence helped shape America during the first half of the 20th Century.
