ESTHER AND AHASUERUS STUDY ON ESTHER AND AHASUERUS STORY WITH ESTHER AND AHASUERUS MESSAGE
Welcome back and
glad to have you back once again at Daily Bread to share this unique story. Looking back,
Haman had just been humbled unbeknownst to the king, when he was ordered to
parade Mordecai around the city in honor of saving the king's life. Then
after going home and crying in shame to his wife and friends, he was
promptly picked up by the king's chamberlains to be brought to the banquet
of wine that queen Esther had prepared.
When the king and
Haman arrived, the king asked once again, What is your petition, queen
Esther and it will be granted to you. Whatever your request is, it will be
granted, even up to half of the kingdom.
If I've found favor in your eyes, O king, let my life and the life of my
people be spared. We've been sold to be destroyed. If we had been sold for
slaves, I would've held my peace, even though the enemy couldn't compensate
for the king's loss.
ESTHER AND AHASUERUS LESSON WITH ESTHER AND AHASUERUS EXPLANATION
AND ESTHER AND AHASUERUS SUMMARY
Who dares presume in his heart to do such a thing? Esther said, The
adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman! The king in anger, getting up and
leaving the banquet, went into the palace garden. Haman was afraid and he
stood up to beg for his life from Esther because he saw that the king
determined evil against him.
Haman threw himself on the bed where Esther was and just then, the king
returned from the garden to the banquet. Infuriated to see Ahasuerus laying
on the bed with his wife ... Said, "Will he assault the queen also, with me
in the house?" While the king spoke, they covered Haman's face.
Hungry for a
little Daily Bread Crumb? It was the custom of the kings of Persia, that
their servants covered the face of anyone the king was angry with, so the
king wouldn't have to look at him anymore. It was also a custom that the
Romans, the Macedonians and possibly the Persians commonly muffled the heads
of prisoners with a napkin or veil before executing them.
ESTHER AND AHASUERUS INFORMATION WITH ESTHER AND AHASUERUS MEANING
AND ESTHER AND AHASUERUS DISCUSSION
One of the king's
chamberlains told the king, There is a gallows, fifty cubits high, that
Haman had made, for Mordecai the man who saved the king, at Haman's house.
The king said, Hang him on it. So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he
had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king's anger was pacified.
Well, that wasn't
the end of the matter. Don't forget that Haman convinced the king to put in
writing and seal with the king's ring, that Mordecai and his people would be
destroyed. Although Haman has been hung, the writing was still standing.

more of what happened when God's divine hand assists Esther and Mordecai in
helping to save His people, next time, at Daily Bread Bible Study.
