 The Book of Esther

Good battles evil in this timeless story of Biblical heroism.

When Ester becomes King Xerxes’ queen, her Cousin Mordecai and that despicable Haman engage in a dangerous game of intrigue for control of the young Persian King Xerxes.

It’s not secret that Haman plans to exterminate the Jews, but Haman’s plan include something horrible for Mordecai and his people. It is up to Mordecai’s cousin Esther to win the affection of the King, unmask Haman’s treachery and save the Jewish people.

Can Esther convince her husband to spare her people – even though she may be putting her own life at risk?

Based upon the book of Esther, this delightful retelling emphasizes the value of courage, faith and obedience.

I have always loved the book of Esther.  In this particular movie the kindness and sincerity of Esther is really brought out.  What a great example of a heart surrendered to God.

The book of Esther reminds of a Proverbs 31 woman, as well as I Timothy 2:9,10 & I Peter 3:1-4 – Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; while they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.  Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

My favorite part in this film was that it brought out how God spoke to Esther.  The time will come again similar to what Esther went through.  My prayer is that God will get us ready and that our hearts will have so much love for others that the gospel is spread worldwide and people will once again see love in the Christians’ life.
