In the closing decades of the 7th century BC,

the Ancient Near East is in turmoil.

The once mighty Assyrian Empire is in decline.

And Babylon is stirring.


In the relatively insignificant city of Jerusalem,

King Josiah begins a religious purge,

laying the foundation for a faith

that will change the world forever.


Caught up in the political maelstrom

of a relentlessly resurgent Israel,

the Prophet Jeremiah can feel the winds of change.


But Jeremiah knows that ill winds

have always blown from the south.


From Egypt.
