Esther 1-2, Revelation 13
10If anyone is to be taken captive,
to captivity he goes;
if anyone is to be slain with the sword,
with the sword must he be slain.
Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.
9And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day the Lord will be one and his name one.
Absolutely written content material , Really enjoyed studying.
love love LOVE that we’re reading Esther! I love the detail that the author took to tell this story – I’ve never seen One Night With The King, so I think after we finish this book I’ll have to watch it!
One Night With The King is a great picture of what it may have looked like. Definitely recommend that one! The book of Esther has always been one of my favorites. I love the women of the Word!
Revelation is such a complex book. Has anyone ever read any scholarly books on it?
I have not, but I plan on digging deeper into this book after reading it through this first time!!
I’ve done a Precept bible study (Kay Arthur) on Revelation twice…. So good. There is so much to learn and God reveals a little more each time but still so much to understand. I’m guessing more will be understood as we get closer to those last of the last days. We’re getting closer though bc even 15-20 years ago I don’t think we could imagine technology to “mark” someone’s right hand or forehead in order a to buy or sell. But now we have locator/Health information chips inserted into animals — and just maybe that same technology will move to people bc of identity theft?!?
I’ve read Triumph of the Lamb: commentary on revelation by Dennis Johnson while auditing a class on revelation at Westminster seminary. It’s a great read!
The word of God is truly poetry as the feast is described in such elaboration you can almost taste the king’s wine
