Maybe, but I suspect the difference isn’t as great as some might think. I believe we often wrongly ascribe very primitive and even naive worldviews to first-century Jews, but human nature hasn’t evolved much in the last 2000 years. 

I suspect most Jews had no reason to believe independence and a return to greatness were prophetically plausible.
