Enter Sinister Haman

Gentlemen,

The following questions should get you ready for next Monday’s study:

  1. Who was Haman the Agagite?
  2. What reason would a Jew, like Mordecai, give for not bowing down or paying homage to Haman?
  3. Why did Haman seek “to destroy all the Jews” (v. 6), instead of just eliminating Mordecai?
  4. What was “pur” (v. 7)?
  5. Haman claims that the Jews’ “laws are different” and that “they do not observe the king’s laws” (v. 8 ).  Does this sound familiar?  Can you find other Scripture passages where these same claims were made?
  6. What was the approximate value of “10,000 talents of silver” (v. 9)?
  7. What is significant about Haman’s decree to “seize their possessions as plunder” (v. 13)?

If you haven’t yet voted on the poll question from two posts ago, please do so this week.  Only seven of you have done so, and I would appreciate all of your input before the decision is made.

Remember to download next Monday’s handout on Esther chapter three.  It is available at the “Media Drop Box” located on the right-side toolbar, under “Bible Study Tools.”

Steve T. promises to bring the dessert which will be served at 7 pm, with the study starting shortly after that.

Let’s all remember to pray for each other throughout this week!
