    • 2 Pages

    The Book of Esther, also known as “The Scroll”. in The Hebrew Bible, recounts the restoration of God’s people, the Jews, from a death sentence. The purpose of the Book of Esther is to display the providence of God, especially in regard to His chosen people, Israel. Again, we are met with the same lesson that we can extract from Genesis, Exodus and Job: trust in God completely. However, as we analyze the characterizations of women in Sophocles's Oedipus Rex, the Book of Genesis and the Book of…

    Esther 4:10-17 The book of Esther is a historical narrative, which tells the story of God’s people escaping exile in Israel with the help of a brave Jewish woman, Esther. While Esther has reservations about Mordecai’s request for her to appeal to King Xerxes, Esther follows through with the request, as she knows that it will serve the Jewish people. Mordecai on the contrary understands that God will stand true to His promise of redeeming the Jews, even if it is not on their desirable timeline.…

    Book Of Esther Essay

    • 2090 Words
    • 9 Pages

    The book of Esther has a more profound meaning than that of a young girl who becomes queen. The story shows a brave young girl who is willing to sacrifice her life to save her people, from what seems an inevitable genocide. As a result of the book of Esther’s complexity I will use summary, irony, and compare and contrast to further understand the selection of Esther (Esther 2:1-18) and the ruin of Haman as Mordecai rises to power (Esther 6:1-13). Aside from the three tools I will be using, the 3…

These women held both public and political positions in their empires, and possessed the authority that women in previous times had never had before. Both the Roman and Persian women who obtained this power did so in different ways, and these women also both conducted themselves differently once obtaining this uncommon privilege. Livia and Esther were both some of the first patricians in…

    Esther In The Odyssey

    • 1204 Words
    • 5 Pages

    In the Greek book, Esther is a symbolic object. She aids in the freedom of the Hebrews, but the author chose to follow Mordecai’s story as a prophet and standing against Haman. Instead of standing in behind the scenes in the Hebrew version, Mordecai uses Esther’s positions as the king’s favorite to persuade the king to accept any of her requests. Esther still asks the same desires as in the Hebrew book, but the author of the Greek book puts much more detail into it, changing the scenario and the…

    command to Queen Vashti, she refused to come. Furious at her refusal to obey, the king asked his wise men what should be done. One of them said that all the women in the empire would hear that "The King Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not." Then these women would despise their husbands, which would cause many problems in the kingdom. Therefore it would be prudent to depose Vashti.[2] Many beautiful maidens were then brought before the king in order…
