Esther: Introduction and Overview
The Book of Esther Series
Today we start a new series in the book of Esther. The theme of this book is finding God when he seems absent. Join us for an overview and introduction! #TheBookOfEsther
Bible Project: A classic story of good versus evil, the Book of Esther is a unique account in the Bible. It gives us a glimpse of the Jews who remained outside their homeland after the Exile, particularly the Jews living in the Persian Empire. Here we see that the author chose a fascinating literary choice - never once is God mentioned in the entire Book. This behind-the-scenes take of God at work is brilliantly displayed throughout Esther's chapters through "coincidences" and "happen chances" that help to save the Jews from Haman's wicked plot to destroy them.
