Ruth and Esther are the two books named for women. I’ve written on both of these books: Ruth, the Romance of Redemption and Esther, the Romance of Providence. Redemption is a romance; it is a love story. We love Him because He first loved us, and He gave Himself for us because He loves us. The Book of Esther is the romance of providence.

Esther: A Story of the Providence of God in a Pagan Land Page 4 INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK The book of Esther is the only book in the Bible that does not mention the name of God. Esther is not quoted in the New Testament. Neither Mordecai, Esther, nor the . Read the book of Esther from the Bible with full chapters, summary and outline, Bible commentary, and our favorite verses to help you study and understand Scripture. Book Summary: God’s name is not mentioned in this book but the pages are full of God who hides himself behind every word. This book is placed between chapters 6 and 7 of Ezra. Easter become queen of Persia (BC) at a time when Persia comprised half the known world. Esther 1 - NIV: This is what happened during the time of Xerxes, the Xerxes who ruled over provinces stretching from India to Cush: At that time King Xerxes reigned from his royal throne in the citadel of Susa.
The book of Esther has many inter. ideas. I am encouraged when I read of her obedience to her uncle M. and trust in God - as she request prayer and fasting! Could this be a lesson for us to go boldly before our King? He loves us even more than King A. loved Esther - He extends the golden scepter as we seek Him. Also inter., this happened 5. 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. 21 In those days, while Mordecai sat in the king’s gate, two of the king’s chamberlains, Bigthan and Teresh, of those which kept the door, were wroth, and sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus. 22 And the thing was known to Mordecai, who told it unto Esther the queen; and Esther certified the king thereof in Mordecai’s name. Interest in the book of Esther has been both negative and positive. "Opposition to the Book of Esther is not a modern phenomenon Esther is the only book of the Hebrew Bible not represented among the Dead Sea scrolls." Interestingly enough, in the New Testament no allusions to Esther exist (Gordis ).
