We finish the story of Esther this weekend. While justice has been served to the antagonist Haman, we remember the edict he had put in place has not changed. The Jewish people are still in danger and must find a way to counteract the pending calamite. Esther and Mordecai work together to find a solution and a commemoration and celebration is established so the Jews never forget what God has done.

This week, we encounter a few moments in which we have been anxiously waiting in suspense. Esther boldly and courageously confronts King Xerxes regarding the edict again the Jewish people while exposing the evil plan of Haman. We see the reaction and downfall of the story’s most disliked villain with ironic circumstances. Like our own sin, there are some residual consequences from Haman’s actions that ultimately ends with God’s perfect justice.

Those in the Jewish faith say, “next to the Torah, Esther is the greatest story ever told.“ There is good reason because it tells the movement of God’s hand in the circumstances of one of the Jewish peoples’ darkest moments. Just as a deviant Persian King finds favor in a bold young Jewish woman named Hadassah (Esther), God sets the stage for one of the most magnificent rescues in history.

The tension continues to wind even tighter as Esther and Mordecai create a plan to save the Jewish people. Haman strives to claim recognition in the kingdom and the plot takes an ironic twist in favor of Mordecai.

As we continue in the story of Esther, we are introduced to a new character, Haman, and his evil plot to kill all of the Jews.  Mordecai and Esther fast as Esther prepares to risk her life to save her people and the promised line of Jesus.
