Esther (Part Two): The Bachelor, Medo-Persian Edition
As the study of the book of Esther continues, we examine Mordecai's and Esther's entrances into the story. Xerxes loses a war, Esther enters the ancient world version of The Bachelor, and Mordecai saves the king's life. Taking a fresh look at this part of the story, you'll find that Mordecai and Esther weren't particularly "good Hebrews" in the sense of obeying the commands and instructions set forth in the Jewish law by God. But in spite of their hidden faith and questionable morals, God set them both in prominent positions for greater plans. God doesn't create evil or sin, but when humanity errs, He works through/in spite of those events to bring about ultimate Good.
