This past Sunday, August 21, Glenn Beck began the series of programs leading to his main “Restoring Courage” event, in Jerusalem, Israel on Wednesdady. Kicking off “the Countdown to a Global Movement,” the Beck broadcast welcomed the world to the Jewish State.
Sunday’s “Courage To Love” program was broadcast from the Roman occupation-era amphitheater in Caesarea, Israel. 3,000 people filled the amphitheater, hearing a range of speakers which included Beck, David Barton (Aledo, Texas-based historian and minister), John Hagee (San Antonio-based pastor), Rabbi Shlomo Riskin (founding rabbi of the Upper West Side’s Lincoln Square Synagogue and currently chief rabbi of Efrat in Israel’s Judea region) and Dr. Mike Evans (Phoenix-based Christian-Zionist journalist).
In many ways, this first broadcast was geared toward drawing Christians into the meaning and reasoning behind Beck’s pro-Israel agenda. To that end, Beck spoke to his audience as Christians. As the evening continued, Glenn Beck evolved this Christian approach into an all-encompassing approach. By night’s end, it was clear that Beck could reach out to his Jewish viewers and draw them in with a sense of belonging and community.
