Royal Fire and Fury

The Talmud on the Megillah, Lesson 16


Royal Fire and Fury: The Talmud on the Megillah, Lesson 16

Having given up on his Jewish judiciary, the enraged King now taps his seven-member personal Persian Politburo; the empire’s multicultural crafted royal cabinet. The Scripture lists the individual names of this outstanding group of seven. Our sages see the unique enumeration as an allusion to a silent subtext of the narrative. As the rebellious Queen’s future lie in balance, heavenly angels entreated the King of all Kings for just desserts. The identity of the vocal mystery minister is visited, and the class concludes with the literary fortuitous fallout that followed.
