EPISODE DESCRIPTION

The story of Esther is one of intrigue, danger, and courage in epic proportions. But this isn't just a Hollywood story or a cheap novel. It is the true life story of a Jewish woman who became queen of the Medo-Persian Empire, and who had a serious choice to make. Because of the scheming of an ego-filled politician named Haman, Esther's husband (King Xerxes) had passed an edict that the Jewish people throughout the empire would be exterminated.

Her cousin and adoptive father, Mordecai, challenges Esther with these words: "Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:13-14, NIV)

Join us as we see how Esther handles Mordecai's challenge, and that we, too, may be where we are "for such a times as this."
