Covenants, superpowers, promises and betrayal. Thousands of years ago God vowed to Abraham that He would “bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you” (Genesis 12:3). Many individuals, nations, and empires have put God’s word to the test. As one of the greatest superpowers the world has ever known, has the United Kingdom’s history proved the potency and longevity of God’s ancient covenant with Abraham and his descendants? This documentary film traces the rise and fall of the British Empire alongside Britain’s complex relationship with the Jewish People. What was Britain’s role in the re-birth of Israel in her historic homeland? How did Britain’s rich Christian heritage influence the geo-political factors surrounding the First and Second World Wars? Was the timing and circumstances of the tumultuous British mandate over Palestine merely coincidental? Is the demise of the British Empire a direct result of a forsaken promise? In ancient times King Cyrus had a unique call to restore the Jewish People to their homeland. Is the UK a modern-day Cyrus? Presented by Lance Lambert, the film features interviews with academics and Church leaders, alongside eye-witness accounts, historical footage, and live action dramatizations.
