Its name means ''city of peace.'' But as a focal point of three major world religions, and home to some of those faiths' holiest sites, Jerusalem has witnessed 3,000 years of bloody conflict, intrigue and passion. National Geographic, with exclusive access, intimately explores locales held sacred by Christians, Jews and Muslims.
From footage filmed inside the magnificent Dome of the Rock to the vast underground expanse of Solomon's Stables to the traditional sites of Jesus Christ's death and resurrection, it's a spellbinding journey into this ancient, multilayered urban landscape of war, worship and timeless wonder.
Bonus feature: interactive timeline - The Crusades.

I watched this alone and will suggest to my Bible class that we watch it together. Everything about it was very good. I wish someone had told us why the Jewish men rock back and forth while they pray at The Wailing Wall. I have always wondered about that. It was an excellent source of information. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
