"Route 60: The Biblical Highway" Takes Moviegoers Where Heroes of the Bible Walked
Updated: Sep 21
The documentary travels the Holy Land with former U.S. statesman Mike Pompeo.
Sometimes called the "Path of Patriarchs," Route 60 is a road that runs through the heart of Israel, winding from Nazareth in the north, through Jerusalem, to Beersheba in the south. The new film Route 60: The Biblical Highway will follow the famous thoroughfare, taking viewers along this "sacred link to the roots of Judaism and Christianity and the stories of the Old and New Testaments," as its synopsis puts it.
Former American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and retired U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman serve as the guides on the journey, traveling "the very ground Abraham, Jacob, King David, and Jesus once walked." In an interview with The Christian Post, Pompeo says that during filming in Israel he was struck by "how deeply connected our faith is to the land."
"This is the place (where) Jesus was crucified, buried and rose. We got to travel on some of the same roads that he traveled in this movie. And we tell these stories about his life, about his earthly life, and I think every Christian can see that."
