El libro de Ester lo encontramos en la Biblia en el Antigüo Testamento. Es un libro de 10 capítulos y te invito a leerlo en la Biblia. Este es un libro especial para mi esposa y yo, ya que a nuestra segunda hija la llamamos Esther que significa «estrella».
We can fin the Book of Ester in the Bible in the Old Testament. This is a 10 chapter book and I encourage you to read it. This also a special book for my wife and me, because we named our second daughter «Esther» which means «star».
Esther was Jewish. That means she was and Israelite. She lived in the land of Persia with her older cousin Mordecai.
The king or Persia needed a new queen. He announced, «Bring me the most beautiful women from all over my kingdom». Esther was one of the women sent to the palace. When the king met Esther, he chose her to be his queen.
Haman was the king’s chief helper. He hated the Jewish people. They were God’s people. Haman wanted everyone to bow down to him. Mordacai refused to bow down to Haman. Mordecai would only bow down to God.
Haman went to the king. He said, «The Jews are bad people. You should sign a law that will help me get rid of them». So the King signed the new law. God’s people were in great danger!
Mordecai heard about the new law. He ran to tell Esther, «You must save yourself and the rest of God’s people. Perhaps God has made you the queen for his reason.» So Esther came up with a plan. It would be very risky for her.
Esther invited the king and Haman to a special dinner. Then she asked the king, «Why does Haman want to get rid of me?» The King was surprised. She said, «I am Jewish. Haman tricked you into signing a new law that would get rid of all the Jews.»
The King told his guards, «Arrest Haman!» Then he made Mordecai his new chief helper. He told Queen Esther, «I will make a new law that will keep you and your people safe.» God used Esther to save his people!
