BIBLE STUDY with Rev. Effery Flood, Teacher, Spring Training Institute
Topic: A Petition Planned Read: Esther 8
Esther 7 recorded the demise of Haman, the enemy of the Jews. That day began with him having a pity party, then he was escorted to the palace for the second banquet with Ahasuerus and Esther. Before the day was over, Haman's body was on display some 75 feet above the ground for all to see how the king dealt with those who betray him! It started with Esther's response to the king's offer to do whatever she asked, in which she revealed her request was for her life and the lives of her people to be spared from the evil planned for them. Infuriated, Ahasuerus yelled, "Who is he, and where is he, who would dare presume in his heart to do such a thing?" Esther's shocking reply: "The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman!" (From Esther 7:5-6, NKJV)
Ahasuerus was beside himself with anger and stormed from the room. Haman was out of his mind with fear, pleading at the feet of Esther to spare him, ending up collapsed on top of her on the couch. Ahasuerus returned to the room with this sight, thinking Haman was trying to rape Esther on top of everything else! He arrested him immediately, and thanks to the suggestion of one of the eunuchs, Haman was executed on the very device he had built to execute his enemy, Mordecai.
The enemy of the Jews was gone, but his evil plan was still in effect. Today we'll see how this serious problem would be dealt with and how God continued to demonstrate His faithfulness in helping His people through Esther and Mordecai.
What did Ahasuerus do after the death of Haman, and how was the link between Mordecai and Esther revealed to him? (v.1)
This victory over their enemy was bittersweet, however, Esther couldn't stand the pain in her heart another minute. Why was this, and what did she do? (v.3)?
What did Ahasuerus suggest Esther and Mordecai do in view of the situation and why? (v.8)
