BIBLE STUDY with Rev. Patricia Simmons, Teacher, Spring Training Institute
Week 9 • Topic: A Resounding Victory • Read: Esther 9
Haman, the enemy of the Jews, was hung upon the gallows he intended for his enemy Mordecai. But Esther 8 showed us that this was a bittersweet victory. Esther informed Ahasuerus of the relationship between herself and Mordecai, Ahasuerus promoted him, and he was placed over the house and position of Haman. In the midst of this, Esther became overcome with grief. Despite Haman's demise, his plans were still in effect to destroy the Jewish people. She once again pleaded with the king to do something about it, but his law couldn't be revoked. Instead, he suggested that Esther and Mordecai write another law in the king's name that would help the Jews, and so they did, authorizing the Jews to defend themselves against the attack of those who allied with Haman in his hatred of them. This all truly was a reversal of fortune, and Mordecai was lifted up in the sight of the people. There was joy, gladness, and celebration among the Jews for probably the first time since their Babylonian captivity. Even many Persians converted to Judaism, at least superficially, because of this.
So, the author of Esther left us in suspense. Would this plan work out? Would the Jews survive the date chosen by lot, the thirteenth day of the month of Adar? The story quickly turns to the resolution of this problem in today's study of Esther 9:1-19. In our final lesson (Lesson 10), we will see how the Feast of Purim was officially established and how things turned out for the heroes of our story.
1. There is no question that in the Book of Esther we see God's hand of providence at work like nowhere else in the Bible. How does v.1 all the more confirm this?
2. What capped the Jews' victory, and what did they not do although the King's edict allowed it (vv. 7-10, see Esther 8:11)?
3. This victory brought rest at last for the Jews after such turmoil. We too have been given rest in Jesus Christ, freed from our enemy! Read Galatians 3:11—14 and record how the way was made for us to also enter into His rest.
