Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “From the creators of ‘The Hope’ and ‘Made in Israel’ comes a CBN Documentaries Film, ‘In Our Hands: The Battle for Jerusalem,’ which marks the 50th anniversary of the Six-Day War and commemorates this historic battle. For centuries, their nation had been in exile. For a generation, they had been without access to their ancestral city. For six days, surrounded by enemies, Israel stood alone … and changed history. In May of 1967, Arab nations joined together with a stated goal to wipe Israel off the map. Less than 20 years after reforming as a nation, Israel was on the verge of extinction. Yet six days in early June 1967 changed history forever.

‘In Our Hands’ tells the story of Israel’s 55th Paratrooper Brigade and how Israel’s Defense Forces risked everything for the sake of their homeland. With firsthand interviews and historical reenactments, this powerful docudrama focuses on the commitment and sacrifice of the soldiers who reunited Jerusalem. Experience an exclusive conversation with Gordon Robertson, as he discusses the significance of the Six-Day War.”

Editor’s note:

“Thus says the LORD,
Who gives the sun for light by day
And the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,
Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar;
The LORD of hosts is His name:
‘If this fixed order departs From before Me,’ declares the LORD, ‘Then the offspring of Israel also will cease from being a nation before Me forever’.” —Jeremiah 31:35-36 NASB

“The land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac,
I will give it to you,
And I will give the land to your descendants [literal: seed] after you.” —Genesis 35:12 NASB

“…the land which the Lord your God is giving you for all time.” —Deuteronomy 4:40b NASB

“Israel's national polity has been broken up by the Romans. But their preservation as a distinct people amidst violent persecutions, though scattered among all nations for eighteen centuries, unamalgamated, whereas all other peoples under such circumstances have become incorporated with the nations in which they have been dispersed, is a perpetual standing miracle.” (Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible)

Movie Critics
…The film succeeds in going into great depth, but not bogging down the viewer with too much information. But this is more than just a documentary. This is a detailed description of the emotional roller coaster that Israel and its citizens have experienced throughout their history, with the focal point being the Six Day War and the events surrounding it. …
Benjamin Glatt, The Jerusalem Post
…terrific, fascinating …a very engaging documentary with strong Christian and Biblical moments… [4]
