"The Golden Scepter Held Forth"
Series Esther- The Hidden Hand
Our next message from Esther, titled, "The Golden Scepter Held Forth." Last time, we saw Mordecai sending word to Esther that Haman was planning the death of all the Jews in all 127 provinces of the Persian empire. Now, we see Esther finally taking the stand she needs, to attempt to save her people. As she approaches the king, will he extend his scepter to her? YES! We consider our topic under these headings 1) The Golden Scepter Held Forth, 2) A Feast in Humility, and 3) Hang 'im High! As always I claim no originality but will quote, cite, refer, etc, to various sources including; Ortland, Duguid, Gregory, Baldwin, Cain, and Carson.
