He Is Risen—Billy Graham preaches in Jerusalem, 1960

In 1960, Billy Graham traveled to Jordan and Israel to “see the places that were sacred to  Christians, Muslims, and Jews … to report to the 50,000 Christians in Israel what was happening in the church in other parts of the world … to preach God’s word in the whole world … to thank the people of Israel for being the nation through whom Jesus was brought to this earth in the divine plan of God (Just As I Am, 1997).”

This video is part of the message of Good News that Billy Graham preached in Israel.

He gives us all a reason to live each day. Someday anyone who believes in him will spend eternity with him. Praise be to God.

    I praise God for sending Dr. Billy Graham to this world to preach and deliver Gods word to us. He has been an inspiration to me for years and years. I have read so many of his books and followed him along the way. I am a better Christian because of him. I enjoyed the video. Hope Dr. Graham and his entire staff and family will have a blessed Easter.

  16. Bishara S. Kawar says:

    If my memory didn’t fail me, I saw the Rev. Billy Graham for the first time in Jerusalem in 1960 when I was eight years old. Members of the Southern Baptist Curches in Jordan took a couple of busses from Amman to Jerusalem to hear Billy preach. A dear friend of ours, pastor Roy Whitman, pastor of Jordans’s first evangelical church located in Amman was the translator to Arabic of Rev. Billy’s message. God has used the Rev. Billy Graham to revive His church throughout the world and I hope America today will listen to God’s message through His servant Billy Graham.
