Get More Black History In The Bible For Only $1


The book of Esther is only 10 chapters long, the main hero is a woman, and her actions are still celebrated today in during Purim. What makes the book so unique is that it describes the scenario put forth in the movie The Purge. A law was passed that allowed people to do anything they wanted to the Jews, including murder. The Jews were then allowed to do the same to anyone coming after them. This event resulted in the deaths of over 75,000 people spanning from India to Ethiopia. We’re going to discuss these events in this two part series.

Intro
Show Notes

In the book of Esther, king Ahasuerus ruled 127 provinces from India to Ethiopia.

  • His palace was located at shushan.
    • Shushan is known as Susa.
    • It was established by the Elamites… the black descendants of Shem
      • Search Elam on the BHITB website.

Queen Vashti refused to come to the king when he called.

  • In order to stop all women from rebelling, the wise men decided to punish the Queen by stripping her of her royal estate and giving it to another as a warning to all other women in the kingdom.

The King gathered the best looking virgins in his kingdom.

  • Mordecai advised Esther not to reveal that she was a Hebrew.
  • They would be purified for 12 months
  • They would leave the first house (virgins) to spend the night with the king.
  • In the morning they would move into the second house with the concubines (sex slaves)

Mordecai overheard a plot to kill the king (Esther 2)

  • Mordecai told Esther
  • Esther warned the king.
  • The king had the 2 guys killed.
  • This led to the promotion of Haman the Agagite

Agag was king of the Amalekites

  • Samuel killed Agag in 1 Samuel 15
  • The Agagites were likely descendants of Agag.
  • The Amalekites were descendants of of Amalek.
  • Amalek was the son of Eliphaz, Esau’s sons.
  • The Amalekites were Edomites, which would make Haman an Edomite.

Haman wanted to kill all of the Hebrews because Mordecai wouldn’t bow to him.

  • They’re different from everyone else.
  • They don’t follow the King’s laws so its not profitable for the king to keep them alive.
  • Haman made a law that anyone could kill any Jew (man, woman, and child) without consequence.

Esther is forced to get involved in politics.

  • Lobbyist
  • Esther is going to be forced to reveal her identity and risk her life to save her people.
  • Mordecai warns her that if she doesn’t go to the king, The Most High will send salvation from somewhere else and not spare her.

“For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” – Esther 4:14

  • Esther was willing to risk her life to help her people.
  • She went to the king uninvited, which was a death sentence if he didn’t extend the golden scepter to her.
  • She invited the king and Haman to a special banquet the next day.
  • Haman wasn’t satisfied with his riches and position. He wanted Mordecai and all the Jews destroyed.
  • Haman is convinced by his friends and family to make gallows to hang Mordecai.
  • The king couldn’t sleep, so he had the Chronicles (Persian) read to him and Modrecai saving his life came up.

Haman accidently gets Mordecai crowned as prince to the kingdom of Persia

  • Haman’s wife Zeresh told Haman that if Mordecai was really a Jew his plan would fail.
  • During the banquet the King offers Esther anything she wanted up to half of the the kingdom (India to Ethiopia).
  • Esther calls out Haman for attempting to have the Hebrews destroyed (Daniel in the lion’s den).
  • The king was already mad, and when he came back in, he mistook Haman’s begging as him attempting to rape Esther in front of him.
    • Bag over the head (likely sheets or a cloth of some kind)
  • Mordecai was put in charge of the house of Haman.
  • Esther made a second request to save her people.
