Israel, Saudi Arabia, and a Common Enemy
Israel is reportedly in the process of completing a peace deal between themselves and Saudi Arabia, with Egypt also playing a role, the continuation of a warming of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia. And while the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two nations may remain a ways off, things appear headed in the right direction. But Israel has other challenges in the Middle East, as tensions continue flaring with the Palestinians and Iran's nuclear program continuing to ramp up. This all comes as the White House is reportedly planning a trip by President Biden to the region at the end of the month. CBN News Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell joins the Rundown from Jerusalem to discuss.

Helping Those on the USS George Washington
The United States Navy is investigating a string of suicides on the USS George Washington, a Naval aircraft carrier that is currently docked in Newport News, Virginia. Navy officials are looking at working conditions aboard the GW, searching both for answers and solutions.

These stories and more on today's podcast.
Christian Revival At Harvard?
It's among the Ivy Leagues and named after Puritan clergyman John Harvard; but even the oldest institution of higher learning in the US and one of the most prestigious in the world isn't exempt from secular influence. Over the last few centuries, Harvard Law School has endorsed secular ideologies rather than clinging to its biblical foundations. CBN News Reporter Mark Martin talked to a few students on campus about what it's like to be a Christian law student at Harvard, and their answers may surprise you. He is on today's episode to share their surprising experiences.
Ukraine, A "Fight for Freedom"
This week, the US Senate approved another 40 billion dollars in military and economic aid to Ukraine on the same day the prime ministers of Finland and Sweden came to the White House for a trilateral meeting with President Biden. Those two nations, long on the sidelines of NATO's decades-long standoff with Russia, are asking to join the organization in response to Putin's war in Ukraine. CBN News' George Thomas is back stateside after covering the first few months of this war for CBN News, and he joins The Rundown to tell us what he saw, how Ukrainian Christians are responding, and what's next.
Also, what is "The Metaverse?" It is a concept that has been growing in popularity over the last few months, as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says his company is going all-in on the idea. CBN's Faith Nation anchor John Jessup recently traveled to Oklahoma and visited a church that is using the metaverse to reach unbelievers. He joins the show to discuss what he found.
