2. Esther's StoryRelated Media
The Book of Esther describes how the Jewish holiday of Purim came to be. There was a plot to commit genocide against Jews living in Persia. God sovereignly used an orphaned, timid foreigner, Esther, to thwart the heinous plan through her presence in the right place at the right time with the right face. Purim is still celebrated (2500 years later) in celebration of God’s remarkable faithfulness to save the Jewish people in Esther’s time. God can take sin and turn it around to show his grace and glory.
