Hadassah, a Jewess, is the main character of the book (Esther ). Her name means 'a myrtle.' After her parents died when she was young Mordecai adopted and raised her (, 15). Her name was changed to Esther, which means 'a star,' when she entered the Persian royal harem.

    Mordecai, in chapter nine, recorded the events of Purim, so there is some speculation that he wrote the book. Historians believe the book was written between B.C. during the reign of Artaxerxes, son of King Xerxes. Judaism refers to Esther as The Megillah of Esther, meaning scroll of Esther.   The book of Esther is short, so it makes sense to read the whole book to get a sense of what’s going on. In brief: the orphan Esther [Jewish name Hadassah] is cared for by her uncle Mordecai, and then after some wild events in the Persian court involving a 6-month-long drinking party and the king’s marital spat with Queen Vashti, wins the.

Full text of "Discourses on the whole Book of Esther: to which are added, sermons, on " See other formats. The Book of Esther is the third part of the Old Testament and of the Hebrew Bible.

Interestingly, of all the books in the Bible, The Book of Esther is the only book that does not explicitly mention God. The book deals with how Esther, a Jew who was selected by King Ahasuerus as the new queen after removing the previous Queen Vashti.

This summary of the book of Esther provides information about the title, author(s), date of writing, chronology, theme, theology, outline, a brief overview, and the chapters of the Book of Esther. Author and Date. Although we do not know who wrote the book of Esther, from internal evidence it is possible to make some inferences about the author.

Esther is read during the Purim feast on 14th and 15th Adar (February/March). Hence it belongs to the best-known OT-books with the Jews and it is also the book, which has the oldest copies. The book of Esther has served the Jewish people as support of their national hope and especially so.

The Book of Esther. The Book of Esther tells a story of the deliverance of the Jewish people. We are shown a Persian emperor, Ahasuerus (loosely based on Xerxes, – B.C.), who makes momentous decisions for trivial reasons, and his wicked minister, Haman, who takes advantage of the king’s compliance to pursue a personal vendetta against the Jews by having a royal decree issued ordering.

The Book of Esther in Hebrew is secular in nature, in that the name of God, the Temple, and prayer are not mentioned. The Greek Septuagint remedied this situation by adding six passages which include the name of God. The Prayers of Esther and Mordecai are especially noteworthy. The Book of Esther is the only one not found in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

His Resolution to Destroy the Jews6. Haman Obtains a Decree for the Destruction of the Jews7. The Grief of all the Jew. The book purports to explain how the feast of Purim came to be celebrated by the Jews.

Esther, the beautiful Jewish wife of the Persian king Ahasuerus (), and her cousin Mordecai persuade the king to retract an order for the general annihilation of Jews throughout the empire.

The massacre had been plotted by the king’s chief minister, Haman, and the date decided by casting lots (purim). A whole series of banquets structure the work: two by the king, one by Vashti, three by Esther, and the joyful banqueting that ends the book. Further artificialities are clear in the way characters are paired (e.g., Mordecai and Esther) and in the delays and the speed of the action (Esther delays the banquet in – 8, but the tempo of chaps.

The Book of Esther begins with the Queen of King Ahasuerus—Vashti—snubbing the king's request to meet with her. Naturally, being a rather unstable fellow, Ahasuerus fires-slash-divorces her. Now he needs to pick a new queen and eventually manages to select Esther—a comely, young (secretly Jewish) woman who is a part of his harem.

God’s name is not mentioned even once in the entire Book of Esther. Esther Bible Study. While I have been praying about writing a Bible study on the Book of Esther which incorporates verse mapping and inductive Bible study, there are some great Bible studies on the book of Esther available, already.

You may wish to consider one of the following. Esther isn't too graphic, but any book that prominently features a massacre (in this case, both a failed one and a successful one) is obviously going to be something more than PG rated. The Book of Esther excels at violence—75, people get killed in the provinces and a guy gets hanged to death on a really big gallows.

The Book of Esther in Review. What a tremendous book we have just completed! Not only is it a great story with all the drama and elements that a novel would contain, but it contains great lessons.

(Esther ) Esther’s uncle was Mordecai. Mordecai learned of a plot to kill the king and made it known to Esther who passed the news to the king. The two men involved in the plot were hanged. In the book of Esther this information is casually presented as unimportant, but comes up later in the story.

(Esther 2).The Book of Esther provides us with the greatest illustrations of the providence of God. Although His name is never mentioned, we see His providence in each page of this wonderful little book.
