Study of Esther

Historic Timeline:

The Sovereignty Of God

This book is one of two in the Bible that doesn’t mention the name of God (the other is the Song of Solomon). However, even though His name is not mentioned, His sovereignty through providence is seen as the events unfold. The key to understanding the book of Esther is in understanding God’s providence.

Ro 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The book of Esther gives the story of what takes place with those Jews who did not return to Jerusalem after the decree of Cyrus. Note: Ezra 1:1-4

I. The Danger to God's People 1:1-3:15

II. The Decision of God's Servant 4:1-5:14

III. The Deliverance of God's- People 6:1-10:3
