Jerusalem: Center of the World Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Tue, Feb 5, 2013 -- 9:00 PM

For over 40 centuries, untold numbers of Jews, Christians and Muslims have come to Jerusalem to look for God, while billions more have worshiped from afar. This documentary delves into the historical facts and religious beliefs that have led so many thousands to live and die for this city. Host Ray Suarez, together with an outstanding roster of historians and scholars, explores the founding of the city, and the birth and convergence of the world's three major monotheistic religions. He lends voice to the key events in the city's history as described in the Hebrew and Christian Bibles, the Talmud, the Hagaddah, the Koran and the Hadith. And he takes us through Jerusalem's constantly shifting role in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The documentary takes viewers far beyond the city's exteriors to follow the paths taken by Abraham, David, Jesus, and Mohammed, among countless others. From a strikingly intimate perspective, Suarez travels deep into the city. With illustrations from over 300 pieces of iconic artwork from every genre and period, this program brings one of the oldest cities in the world to life.
