American Christian Broadcasters Awaiting Jesus Christ's Return Prep for Live Coverage of Messiah

Here’s an extreme case of Biblical literalism: two major evangelical Christian broadcasters have bought places in Jerusalem to give them the perfect perch to witness the coming of the Messiah down from the Mount of Olives.


The Los Angeles Times’ Edmund Sanders reports that Daystar  Television Network  and Trinity Broadcasting Network have set up shop in Jerusalem studios on a hill that overlooks the Old City. 

“The duelling studios are part of an aggressive push by U.S. evangelical broadcasters seeking to gain a stronger foothold in the holy city,” writes Sanders. “Their presence not only offers boasting rights with American viewers and contributors, but also — and more controversially — a platform for spreading the gospel of  Jesus Christ  to Jews in Israel.”
