Feast of Purim


We will wrap up our study of the book of Esther next Monday.  The following questions on chapters 9 and 10 should help you prepare for our discussion.

  1. Why are the names of Haman’s ten sons included in the narrative? (9:7-9)
  2. Three times the phrase occurs, “but they did not lay hands on the plunder” (9:10, 15, 16) … Why?
  3. Why did Esther request an additional day for the edict to be exacted, and why have Haman’s sons impaled on the gallows? (9:13)
  4. Do the numbers of those killed by the Jews (500, 300, 75,000) sound extreme?
  5. How do the Jews celebrate the Feast of Purim today? (Feb. 28, 2010)
  6. Identify the components of Mordecai’s epitaph. (10:3)

You may download the handout for chapters 9 & 10 from the “Media Drop Box” located on the right-side toolbar, under “Bible Study Tools.”

Dessert will be served at 7 pm, followed by our study.  See you Monday!
