The Gate of Heaven DVD
Bible Archaeology Comes Alive!
by Aaron Lipkin
On a scenic mountaintop in the heartland of Israel, in the biblical territory of the Tribe of Benjamin, lies a mysterious site with evidence of centuries of pilgrimage, habitation, and deep reverence. A thousand-year old oak tree stands beside the ruins of an ancient church and mosque, with Jewish burial caves from the Second Temple Period. Explore a subterranean olive press and winery, dating from 2,500 years ago. On the crest of this hill, see for yourself remains of an ancient platform, the exact size of the Tabernacle of Moses and Joshua.
So why are they all here? Why, throughout the ages, have people come exactly to this place? What is the significance of this mountain? Join your Israeli host, Aaron Lipkin, along with his guest, Joshua Waller, for a personal tour, exploring and explaining the biblical history of the ancient site of Beth-El. Most tours visiting Israel never come to Beth-El at all. We invite you to touch the history of the Holy Land with us, as you feel the Scriptures come alive! The Gate of Heaven is an experience you will never forget. This is the rarely seen mountain site of Jacob’s Dream of the Ladder!
FREE BONUS Music Video- The Gate of Heaven DVD also contains a wonderful music tribute entitled, “I Believe,” Performed by Joshua Waller and friends that will encourage you in your own belief and in support for the Covenant Promise that the people of Israel would return back to their historical homeland.
On a personal note, Gary and Bob found themselves on this exact site in March of 2015. It was a cold, windy day, overcast and semi-miserable for the 50 or so people in our tour group. Aaron Lipkin lectured on the site and we were all in awe. But we were also anxious to get back to the bus because it was not a good day to be outside listening to a lecture. As we left the site, Aaron asked our Tour Organizer, Daniel Wright, to pray. After all, we were on Holy Ground. As we bowed our heads and Daniel began to pray, a strange thing happened. The clouds rolled away, the wind stopped, the sun came out and we found ourselves bathed in sunshine and warmth! We couldn’t help but lift up our bowed heads and look at each other in awe of what we were experiencing. God was at Beth-El again that day! And so were we!
