From Mr. Potter in the classic movie It’s a Wonderful Life to the Master of Laketown in The Hobbit,Hollywood knows how to cast its greedy landlords. But long before Hollywood, the evil landlord actually existed. Eglon was the King of Moab, Israel’s enemy. Eglon was hunkered down in Israel’s Promised Land and exacting a huge price after turning the once proud owners of the land into virtual renters. Israel needed a deliverer and they found it in an unexpected source. Ehud was a man on mission. His courage inspires and his story points to the illusion of sin and its powerlessness over us.
