Many of you have probably seen the movie “Castaway” where Tom Hanks is stranded alone on an island. The film does a good job of showing his intense longing for the day when he will be rescued. He has a small picture of his fiancée, which he looks at day after day, year after year. Hoping, hoping, hoping, he will see her again. Although he had never received a promise that he would.

At least the stranded nations of Israel and Judah had a promise to keep them going. They had been picked on for centuries, all the while believing they were God’s chosen people. Even after they returned from captivity in around 430 B.C., they were quickly under the reign of another oppressive dictator.

So among the Jewish community expectancy for deliverance ran high.
