Given the current events taking place in the Middle East it is important to assess the Levant—the land-bridge linking three continents (Europe, Asia, and Africa). The Levant set the stage for some of the principal events in history, is the source of two great monotheistic religions, and supplied the foundations for a third. Thus, it is rightly described as the crossroads of world history. Levant, essentially the western rim of the Fertile Crescent, boasts Jerusalem as its epicenter. Jews, Christians and Muslims all hold their heritage in this region; however, the geographic significance is not held to be theologically significant to Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. In this teaching edition of the Hank Unplugged podcast, Hank Hanegraaff investigates the historical significance of the Levant to Judaism, Christianity and Islam in order to better understand the events unfolding in the Middle East and ensure that Christians approach the unfolding events with a proper sense of biblical and historical literacy.
