Carving through the heart of the Promised Land is the biblical spine of Israel, sometimes referred to as the Path of the Patriarchs and officially designated as Route 60. A highway of deep historical significance while often the scene of unrest and violence, this 146-mile road of asphalt and concrete begins in Nazareth, Israel’s largest Arab city, and ends in Beersheba, one of Israel’s high-tech centers. Running north to south, Route 60 connects ancient Israel with modern Israel, Jews, and Christians with Muslims, and Israelis with Palestinians.

This trek is far more than a two-lane highway; it is a historic, sacred link to the roots of Judaism and Christianity and the stories of the Old and New Testaments. Follow world-changing diplomats David Friedman and Mike Pompeo as they venture down this sacred road, treading the very ground Abraham, Jacob, King David, and Jesus once walked. Discover the history, witness the healing, and realize the hope along Route 60, the Biblical Highway.

“Visually stunning and compelling storytelling.”

— Mike Huckabee

“ROUTE 60 combines the truth of the Bible with undeniable archaeological proof, and like our tour guides, Pompeo and Friedman, that’s a powerful combination!”

— Erick Stakelbeck

My Review

I recently had the opportunity to review the documentary film Route 60: The Biblical Highway. I was blown away by the beauty of the film, the power of the stories it told, and the hope it offered.

The film follows two world-changing diplomats, David Friedman and Mike Pompeo, as they travel along Route 60, a 146-mile road that winds through the heart of the Holy Land. Along the way, they visit ancient sites, meet with religious leaders, and share their own personal stories of faith.

The film is beautifully shot, with stunning visuals of the Israeli landscape. The stories are told in a way that’s both informative and inspiring. And the film’s message of hope is both timely and important.

Route 60: The Biblical Highway had a profound impact on me. It reminded me of the power of faith, the importance of hope, and the beauty of the Holy Land. And I don’t know why it hit me like this but seeing Jacobs well and alter he built and realizing those Biblical places are still there. Don’t ask me why I thought they may not be there due to wear and tear on the land. I became teary seeing them. I highly recommend this film to anyone who’s interested in learning more about the history and culture of Israel.

Additional Thoughts

In addition to the film’s beauty, power, and hope, I also appreciated its balanced approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film doesn’t shy away from the challenges facing the region, but it also offers a message of peace and reconciliation

I highly recommend Route 60: The Biblical Highway to anyone interested in history, religion, or the Middle East. The film is a beautifully made and thought-provoking exploration of a road that’s both ancient and modern, sacred and contested.

  1. This sounds fascinating. I had not realized one highway connected so many important places. I had not realized Jacob’s well was still there, either.

  2. Paula, the trailer is amazing. I would never have thought of a highway connecting so many important places from Scripture. It is also so interesting to me that they are as well preserved as they are. A testament, I think, to God’s faithfulness to His people.

    1. I was blown away. I got teary when I saw that these places were still there and even though I was just seeing them in a movie, I was still SEEING them.

  3. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and allowing me to find you, you’ve created a lovely space here.
