THE GATES OF JERUSALEM
A History of the Holy City
Viewers pass through the portal of the city’s historic eight gates to learn about Jerusalem in this splendid documentary commemorating its 3000th anniversary. Four gates represent the spiritual gateways of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; four gates have survived the battles fought over the Holy Land throughout history. Filmed on location in Israel, the program presents a fully animated re-creation of Solomon’s Temple, dramatic re-creations of the entry of Jesus through the Lion’s Gate and the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent, and archival footage of the 1948 War of Independence and the 1967 Six-Day War. Narrated by Richard Kiley.
