An upcoming film titled “Route 60: The Biblical Highway,” which delves into the historical significance of a biblical route known as “Route 60,” is expected to strengthen the faith of its viewers as it guides them through various biblical sites. David Friedman, the former U.S. Ambassador to Israel, alongside former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, serves as co-host for the film. Their roles involve embarking on a voyage from Nazareth to Beersheba, tracing the path of a modern highway that coincides with an ancient roadway dating back 3,000 years. Notably, Friedman practices Orthodox Judaism while Pompeo identifies as a Christian. Friedman expressed, “These events actually happened,” underscoring the correlation with the events depicted in Scripture.

A new movie that explores a historic biblical road known as “Route 60” will build viewers’ faith as it takes them on a journey to the sites of the Bible, says David Friedman, the former U.S. Ambassador to Israel.
Friedman and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are co-hosts in the upcoming movie Route 60: The Biblical Highway. The film follows Friedman and Pompeo as they travel from Nazareth to Beersheba along a modern paved highway that is the same path as a 3,000-year-old ancient road. Friedman is Orthodox Jew, and Pompeo is Christian.
The film will be in theaters Sept. 18-19.
“These things actually happened,” Friedman told Christian Headlines, referencing the events of Scripture.
“You can bring the Bible back to life by coming to these places,” Friedman said. “And I think when you can do that, in my own personal experience, it’s massively more powerful than just studying.”
In the movie, Friedman and Pompeo visit the sites of the Old Testament patriarchs and the places where Jesus and the apostles walked.
The road, Friedman asserted, is filled with history.
“In ancient times, 3,000 years ago, 2,000 years ago, there was a temple in Jerusalem, and pilgrims from all over Israel would come to Jerusalem,” he noted. “Well, they took this road. So the road is over 3,000 years old. It didn’t have asphalt and blacktop or lane markers, but that road was there, and it was walked by Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, King David, King Solomon, [and] Jesus.
