Hi, I recently recalled the story of Esther because of Purim observance within Judaism last Thursday. it is important to remember that the Bible is full of stories written by God and the story of Esther happened to be one of the Bible stories. The moral of the story is to focus on women and their roles in marriage as submissive to their husbands, Esther 1:10-12. Because of the action of Queen Vasti, a legal case was brought up against her in which became the law of the land, Esther 1:13-22.
The story of Esther came from the Persian King Xerxes in which a nation of Israel would be saved from annihilation. The object of submission in marriage became the theme in which the Jewish exile could become the next queen of the Persian empire. Since the story was created from the life of a real king of the Persian empire the lifestyle of the Biblical king would lead to the story's genuineness and accepted as sacred Scriptures.
The Bible story emphasis her rise to obtain the title of Queen of the Persian Empire and her role as obedient in a secular government. The Bible also tells how the Jews were saved by the actions of Queen Esther and the permission she got from her husband to defend her people which led to the observance of Purim. Her story features her early life only in which does not have children. What famous and important passage is spoken in the Book of Esther?
12-13 Then Esther’s message was given to Mordecai. When he got her message, Mordecai sent his answer back: “Esther, don’t think that just because you live in the king’s palace you will be the only Jew to escape. 14 If you keep quiet now, help and freedom for the Jews will come from another place. But you and your father’s family will all die. And who knows, maybe you have been chosen to be the queen for such a time as this.”
