The Rescue of Jerusalem: The Greatest Battle Never Fought
A Battle of Belief
by Day of Discovery
“What did Hezekiah do? He did absolutely everything he could, humanly speaking. Then he trusted the one who could do more.” —Dr. John Beck
It’s been called the greatest battle never fought. Seven hundred years before Christ’s birth, as Jewish residents holed up behind the wall of Jerusalem, soldiers of the mighty Assyrian army marched toward the gates. They threatened to destroy not only the Kingdom, but but the Davidic line of kings through whom the promised Messiah would come.
With the rest of the Land conquered, only Jerusalem remained. Now, Israel’s King Hezekiah, facing the superpower of the world, prepared his army, bolstered the city gates and assured his people. Then he stood on the promise of God.
Taped on location in Israel, The Rescue of Jerusalem is a remarkable play-by-play of events, bringing together archaeology, Assyrian sources, and biblical accounts. It’s a story with an amazing life lesson—prepare for the challenges, but trust in the One who has all things under control.
