In Prep to Meet Esther
Esther 1 Now in the days of Ahasuerus, the Ahasuerus who reigned from India to Ethiopia over 127 provinces...
All this week we'll be reading through and considering the Book of Esther. As we start into this Book, the first chapter is pretty much background information that will give us context for the rest of the story. So here's a slightly different assignment today.
Read Esther 1-2:4 and do your best to imagine what the general environment of the country was and what is taking place there, think about the feast that is taking place, and consider the main characters in the story. Basically, try to imagine yourself being there. That should get you prepped to meet Esther and start learning the details of her story tomorrow. And if you see anything you want to discuss, don't hesitate to shoot over a comment on the blog. Tami W.
