Jerusalem Rising: Ancient Prophecy/Modern Lens

The Most Spectacular Before and After Photography book ever published on Israel! 

The City of Peace Reawakens!

The Spectacular Sequel to Israel Rising

By Doug Hershey

In Jerusalem Rising, best-selling author Doug Hershey, a seasoned tour leader, explorer of biblical lands, and the founder of Ezra Adventures, an Israel-focused travel and education company, takes his readers on a tour of Jerusalem like none other. A gifted storyteller, he shares how the ancient biblical prophecies of Zechariah, foretold in the Bible and in newly-discovered Dead Sea Scrolls, are coming to life in modern-day Jerusalem.
The book features amazing then-and-now photographs of the ancient City of Peace, offering a stunning visual narrative that chronicles the city’s miraculous transformation from desolation to abundance, as foretold in the Bible centuries ago. From the famed walls and gates of the Old City to the new city rising around it, Hershey provides compelling evidence about the truth of Bible prophecy, while illuminating Jerusalem’s rich history.
Jerusalem Rising showcases more than 140 stunning images of Jerusalem, including rarely seen photographs taken between the 1840s and the mid-1900s—some of the oldest photos of Jerusalem ever, seen in a way never before published. World-renowned aerial photographer Duby Tal shot the breathtaking photo of Jerusalem that graces the front cover of the book. 

Through Hershey’s network of contacts in the region, he and world-renowned adventure-travel and extreme-sports photographer and filmmaker Edden Ram (GoPro, Lufthansa, Columbia, Billabong) gained exclusive access to many storied vantage points throughout the city to reshoot the exact angles of the seldom-seen historical photos included in the book. The juxtaposition of the old and new is staggering to behold.

“We’ve seen from the success of Israel Rising a growing interest in the documentation of ongoing biblical prophecy,” says Hershey. “More and more people are not just curious about proposed future timelines and scenarios, but also about what is tangibly happening right now. The Ancient Prophecy / Modern Lens series is providing that concrete visual evidence.”

 “In Book 2 of this series, Jerusalem Rising, there are several groundbreaking aspects that have never been published before,” Hershey continues. “We’ve documented the restoration of Jerusalem in a compelling way that has not been visually captured previously. I couldn’t be more excited to share this unique view of Jerusalem being restored, just as Zechariah foretold!”

The book features a foreword from Rabbi Yehudah Glick, the founder and president of the Shalom Jerusalem Foundation and recently a candidate for President of Israel. “Today, reviewing this wonderful book, Jerusalem Rising by Doug Hershey, identifying Jerusalem’s venues and comparing the magnificent photography of what was and what is, my eyes are filled with tears,” writes Glick.

Rabbi Tuly Weisz, director of Israel365 and editor of The Israel Bible, says, “Just like the ancient Hebrew prophets, Doug Hershey’s new book directs our eyes and hearts to the miracles that the God of Israel is doing for the People of Israel in the Land of Israel.”

Jerusalem Rising, which includes quotes from religious leaders through the ages and historical personalities spanning almost 2,000 years, details how this city has captured the longing and desire of hearts around the world for centuries, even while it lay in silent desolation. The book offers fascinating insights into Jerusalem’s earliest photographers and firsthand accounts from pilgrims, locals, and would-be conquerors.

The result is an awe-inspiring and groundbreaking collection that will captivate readers and reveal the accuracy of the prophet Zechariah’s words.

The ancient prophecy referred to in Jerusalem Rising comes from Zechariah 8, which speaks of the peaceful restoration of Jerusalem, prophesying a time when the Jewish people will return to the city, the elderly and children will dwell peacefully in the streets, and the nations will flood to Jerusalem as the city revives.

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “I will save my people from the countries of the east and the west. I will bring them back to live in Jerusalem; they will be my people, and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God” (Zechariah 8:8). “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain” (Zechariah 8:3).

After the layout for Jerusalem Rising was finished and sent to the printer, a previously unknown cache of Dead Sea Scrolls was discovered in a desert cave in Israel. Israel 365 News recently reported that some of these latest fragments are from Zechariah 8.

“It’s a stunning confirmation to me that God is once again bringing Jerusalem to the forefront of the world’s attention and that Jerusalem Rising is right on time,” says Hershey. Indeed, the reawakening of the City of Peace is at hand.
