Gina dating esther queen of persia guy loses interest dating
Women in Persia were very honored and revered, they often held very important & influential positions in the Courthouse, Ministries, Military, State and Treasury Department, and other official administrations.
The significant role of women in Ancient Persia both horrified and fascinated the ancient Greek and Roman male-dominated societies.
Although they were free to return to Jerusalem by decree of Cyrus, many had become established and probably did not wish to risk the dangerous journey back to their homeland.
Esther and her family were among the Jews who stayed behind in Persia. We clearly see God's interaction with man's will, his hatred of racial prejudice, his power to give wisdom and help in times of danger.
This annual festival commemorates God's salvation of the Jewish people, similar to their deliverance from slavery in Egypt.
The name Purim, or "lots," was likely given in a sense of irony, because Haman, the enemy of the Jews, had plotted to completely destroy them by casting the lot (Esther ).
Meanwhile, Mordecai learned of the plan and shared it with Esther, challenging her with these famous words:"Do not think that because you are in the king's house you alone of all the Jews will escape.
The king bought into the plot and agreed to annihilate the Jewish people on a specific day.At this same time, the king's highest official was a wicked man named Haman.He hated the Jews and he especially hated Mordecai, who had refused to bow down to him.On the final day of the festivities, he called for his queen, Vashti, eager to flaunt her beauty to his guests. Filled with anger, he deposed Queen Vashti, forever removing her from his presence.To find his new queen, Xerxes hosted a royal beauty pageant and Esther was chosen for the throne.
We can trust in the Lord's sovereign care over every aspect of our lives.
