I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Defining Jerusalem With the Video Turning Point. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. The focus of the film is specifically related to the history of Jerusalem, which provides a stronger understanding of what has happened in Jerusalem. Combining this with the religious affiliations and personal experiences that are a part of the land then offers a broader perspective about the Holy Land.
The video gives the viewer brief and accurate information about the significance of Jerusalem to Jews, Christians and Muslims. The accuracy of the information is based on defining the basic attributes of the religion as well as the perspective that each has to Jerusalem as the Holy Land and what it stands for. More importantly, the video focuses on providing a detailed and accurate history that goes back 4,000 years to show the roots of each religion as well as how they have moved to Jerusalem as the Holy Land. By defining some of the history and giving an overview of the history, there is the ability to connect links to all three of the religions and how they have played a part in religious, political and social affiliations of the land.
Even though there is accurate information on all of the religions, the feedback is limited to the time constraints of giving a documentary in a specific amount of time. Other perspectives of the religions, lifestyle practices and significant events were looked at in terms of a limited perspective or without the ability to understand other marginalized thoughts. If a viewer isn’t familiar with the religions, practices and traditions outside of the video, then the information may seem limited. Since the focus is on Jerusalem, the history is also limited to the space that Jennings is reporting about as well as the individual viewpoints that are connected to this land. However, there are no other stories or objectives given about Jerusalem and the way that it relates from the roots of conflict and religion outside of the basic report that Jennings provides.
