Chiseled from Living Rock: The Lalibela Churches of Ethiopia

Last week, we featured a story from CNN, “Rock churches of Lalibela, the Jerusalem of Ethiopia.”

We received many comments in response, asking for more information about this remarkable place, built during the Middle Ages.

Among the messages on Facebook was a note alerting us to the documentary embedded above. At just under 8 minutes in length, it’s packed full of valuable and interesting information. In particular, it shows how the entire complex of churches was intentionally modeled on the biblical Jerusalem.

Check it out and let us know what you think.
