Text: Esther 8-10
Haman is dead but the threat still remains for God’s people. Esther pleads for their lives and they are empowered by the King. After a victorious battle, the Jews celebrate and the Feast of Purim is established. In the final reversal mentioned in this book, Mordecai is set in the place of Haman as the second in command. His legacy is as a man who sought the welfare of his people.
