What Does Washington Have to Do with Jerusalem?

A Talk by Senator Ben Sasse

“Sadly there are too many of us that, too much of the time, act like something as mundane as politics might possibly be the answer to why we weep and why we hope. That’s an absurd answer. The answer for why we weep and why we hope is because our God is coming quickly, and he is a liberating king, and he is the ruler of the city that has foundations, the hope of the nations.”

Speaker: Senator Ben Sasse

Date: April 4, 2017
