CHAPTER 9 AND 10
THE FEAST OF PURIM BIBLE DISCUSSON
BIBLICAL CELEBRATION OF PURIM IN THE BIBLE ORIGIN
Welcome back to Daily
Bread Bible Study for the conclusion of the Book of Esther. We left
our story when king Ahasuerus sent letters again to all the provinces of his
This time it was a writing allowing the Jewish people to
gather together, stand up for their lives and lay hand on (defend themselves
against) anyone who tried to harm them on the day that Haman ordered that
they be destroyed.
From the time the letters were sent until the time the
king's commandments were to be executed, Mordecai became more and more
honorable in the king's house and his fame spread through all the provinces.
On the 13th day of the
12th month, the enemies of the Jewish people who hoped to prevail over them,
couldn't withstand them because the Lord caused everyone to fear them.
All the kings officers, deputies, lieutenants and rulers of the provinces
helped the Jewish people because the fear of Mordecai fell on them.
THE FEAST OF PURIM BIBLE EXPLANATION
BIBLICAL CELEBRATION OF PURIM IN THE BIBLE PROPHECY
The Jewish people struck all their enemies with the stroke of the sword,
slaughter and destruction to all those who hated them. In Shushan
alone they killed 500 men.
They also slew the
ten sons of Haman, but they didn't lay a hand on their property. You
noticed that the word slew was in italics, so let's have a little Daily
Bread Crumb about that word. The word slew doesn't always mean to put
to death. Sometimes it simply means to strike, overwhelm or affect
You may recall that in the story of David and Goliath,
David slew Goliath with a stone first, then cut off his head and slew him
with his own sword,
1 Samuel 17:50-51. Did David kill the giant twice!
That's quite impossible, so David must have struck him with the stone, then
killed him with the sword.
Now, back to the story.
That day, the number of people slain in Shushan was reported to the king,
and the king told Esther, Your people have slain and destroyed 500 men in
Shushan and the ten sons of Haman, imagine what they've done in the rest of
the provinces. Now, what else do you wish and it will be granted to you.
THE FEAST OF PURIM BIBLE STUDY
BIBLICAL CELEBRATION OF PURIM IN THE BIBLE STORY
Esther said, If it please
the king, let it be granted to the Jewish people that are in Shushan that
according to today's decree, let Haman's ten sons be hanged on the gallows
The king granted Esther's request and they hung Haman's ten
sons. Now, if you wanna look at every possibility, if you read the
text in your Bible, they could have been slain (as in killed) and then hung
afterward as well sort of as a public display, and perhaps this was just
sort of a flashback after the author previously stated that they were slain.
The people in Shushan
continued to fight against the Jewish people on the 14th day of Adar, and
300 more Medes and Persians were slain, but not a hand was laid on their
belongings. (Did you notice that the author made it a point to mention
twice that the Jewish people didn't take any spoil or loot or prey?
Perhaps to point out that the prize of liberating God's people from this
horrible curse of Haman's was what it was all about, not how much stuff they
could come away with.) In the rest of the provinces, the Jewish people
had rest on the 14th day because their enemies surrendered, and they made it
a day of feasting and celebration, but the Jewish people in Shushan feasted
and celebrated on the 15th day. They also sent gifts to one another.
THE FEAST OF PURIM BIBLE TRUTH
BIBLICAL CELEBRATION OF PURIM IN THE BIBLE TIME
these things and sent letters to all the Jewish people of the kingdom, both
near and far, to establish among them that they should keep the 14th and
15th day of the month Adar as a memorial celebration day every year
throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city.
The name of these feast days are called Purim, after the word Pur
because Haman conspired against the Jewish people to destroy them and had
cast Pur, that is, the lot, to consume them, but when Esther came before the
king, he commanded that Haman's wicked idea be returned upon his own head.
The Jewish people enacted
and took upon them, and upon their descendants and anyone who joins
themselves to them, and that it shouldn't fail, that they observe these two
days according to their writing and their appointed time every year so the
remembrance of it is never forgotten. The second letter of Purim was
confirmed and sent to all the Jewish people in all the kingdom with words of
peace and truth and it was written in the book of the chronicles of the
kings of Media and Persia.
The king promoted Mordecai to greatness and all their accomplishments were
also written in the chronicles. Mordecai was made second in command to
the king and he was great among the Jewish people, and respected greatly by
all, acting for the good of his people and speaking peace.
THE FEAST OF PURIM BIBLE PROMISE
BIBLICAL CELEBRATION OF PURIM IN THE BIBLE VOW
All things work together
for good to them that love God, says
Romans 8:28. Why was Esther
orphaned? Why was she put in her cousin Mordecai's care? Why was
she beautiful? What are the chances that she would become queen of a
kingdom that wasn't even of her people? You can bet God has things in
mind, even when they don't make sense to us at any particular time.
Remember, that Esther wasn't the picture of courage at first. She was
afraid of approaching the king about saving God's people at first, but
Mordecai's words of truth, and the hand of God turned her fright into
virtue. Do you think Esther knew the last two verses of
If not, Mordecai sure taught it to her. Favor is deceitful and beauty
is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the
