Esther’s “Defining Moment” ~ Chapters 5 and 6

Gentlemen,

There is a three-day time gap between Esther chapters 4 and 5, during which the Queen is fasting (and certainly praying).  We have a seven-day time gap until our next study, during which you can reflect on and research these questions about chapters 5 and 6 in order to prepare you for our time together.

  1. Based on what occurs in chapter 5, in what specific ways has Esther changed during this three-day time period?
  2. Why do you think this occurred?
  3. Can you identify other biblical characters who experienced a similar transformation?
  4. What is the significance of the king’s response in 5:3?
  5. What is the biblical principle behind Haman’s actions in 5:11-12?
  6. How high is “fifty cubits”(5:14)
  7. Why couldn’t Ahasuerus sleep?  (6:1)
  8. What is the biblical principle behind Haman’s thoughts in 6:6?
  9. What is the true significance of Haman’s request in 6:7-9?

Download next Monday’s handouts on Esther chapters 5 and 6.  They are available at the “Media Drop Box” located on the right-side toolbar, under “Bible Study Tools.”

Dessert will be served at 7 pm … the study starts shortly after that.
