… is the intriguing title of this Thursday’s (22 October) Bible study.
Eddie suggests that, after you have read Esther 4:1–5:8, as well as referring to the notes at this link) you might like to consider the following questions:
- What do you think Esther’s reasons were for sending clothing to Mordecai? Why did he refuse it?
- Though God is never mentioned in the book of Esther, 4:14 does carry an air of divine intervention. Do you think the writer intended this?
- We see in this passage a sudden change by Esther to the world around her as she prepares to go against the prevailing forces and norms. When in your life have you had to make such a sudden change? Why did you do it? What was the outcome?
The Zoom meeting starts at 10:30am, includes a time of sharing at the beginning, and finishes at about 11:40am. If you don’t have the meeting details, or are new to the study group, please email Eddie at ku.gro.tsidohtemhtysornull@retsinim for an access code.
