The Talmud from over 2000 years ago tells a fascinating story about Rabbah bar bar Hana, who was on a boat in the ocean, and happened upon an island. Little did he know, that this island was the back of a giant fish. They stopped the boat for a break, and took out a barbecue to cook some food. The heat from the fire triggered the fish, and it flipped over. Had it not been for the boat near by, they would have drowned. The Netivot HaMishpat, (a great Rabbi from around 250 years ago) explains the parable to be referring to what will be when the Jews finally make their return to Israel, the land of Israel.
