So who was Esther? Esther was a descendant of Sarah. Sarah lived for 127 years. And that is why the targum or Shawn says that Esther was destined to marry the king, because he ruled over 127 problems. And says, and that’s the same number of years that Sarah lived. Since every Hebrew woman is a descendant of Sarah. It could be said that the king was destined Marissa Hebrew a woman. According to the story, Esther was the most beautiful woman in all the land. And the Lord was short this so that she would marry the capital of the Persian Empire was Susa and Susa was chosen by derrius, the first who lived between 521 in 485 BC, as the side of the main administrative capital of the Persian Empire, but also he used it as his winter residence. They were told by the scripture that there was a party and a feast Susa palace and Susa had very Large assembly rooms. They were separate from the rural residents. So it gave ambassadors a place to sleep that was separate from where the parties were going on. There are a lot of reliefs that were found about different guests that had come to see the elite Persian society. The royal throne that is mentioned in chapter one has been interpreted in several different ways. There were four capitals of the Persian Empire, Susa, act baton, Babylon, and Persepolis. The Persian Empire was a combination of Persian media. Persia was to the east of the Babylonian Empire while media was in the Northwest. It took both of these nations to join together to topple the Babylon In Empire, the Persian media empire was from India in the east, to media in the West. And all the way down to Ethiopia in the south. Were told in the third year of the reign of the king, is when this feast began. The charmer Shawn says that the Lord decreed that Vashti was going to die nude, because she used her influence to stop the rebuilding of the Temple of Jerusalem. Now three does signify a divine influence, so that the Lord was influencing what was happening at the time. In the third year of the king, the Lord’s influence over him was at its strongest, and it was time to remove Vashti because once she was removed, the temple at Jerusalem would have been built. Now the king displayed his riches for 180 days, which seems like a really long time. But the 10 target marshawn says that the Kings riches were that huge and came from several sources. A large portion of his riches were left to him by Cyrus the meat who was king before him. Cyrus’s wealth came from the capture of the Babylonian Empire, and there are legends about Cyrus digging into the banks of the Euphrates, finding gold and silver and emeralds. The Hundred and 80 Day party is often compared to the 120 Day party of Nebuchadnezzar, which could be found in the book of Judith, which is found in the Apocrypha and a Babylonian king was not going to upstage Xerxes. So he extended Did his party longer than Nebuchadnezzar is because of his triumph. There was also a banquet of seven days. And after the first banquet or short one lasting about elite a week was made for the residents of the Royal city. excavations at suicide have confirmed that there was a lightly populated residency that surrounded the Royal area. Novosti at the same time, who is the queen gave a banquet for the women in the which belong to the king? Well, Vashti wanted to show off the wealth of the king and the women that were part of his harem was a great part of his wealth. So she brought together the women of the palace, which the king own dish basically show them off. The authors of Esther ensured that the reader would discover that the Lord planned to have kings zerks he married a Jewish woman, and that woman was Hadassah, which is Esther’s true name. A lesson in this chapter is that if one tortures the Lord’s chosen people, that one day the Lord will bring a calamity against the offender, having the girls work in the nude, and this was Vashti, who did it would have been torture to them because of the mini customs of the Hebrew people in Babylon. The chapter is filled with semantic storytelling and elaboration of a theological symbols and phrases. The chapter introduces the reader to the Persian Empire, pyre period, and why the king was looking for a new queen. Another lesson is that one must respect the law or laws of the Lord by following the laws of the Lord. One shows the Lord reverence. Interesting.
