A Perfect Storm: The Talmud on the Megillah, Lesson 25

The rise of the Jewish people’s wicked archenemy seems to have been facilitated by a rabbi saving the King’s life – but logically exactly the opposite should have happened. Here we discover the deep secret about Divine Providence; only once the future salvation is already in place can dark ominous clouds gather to threaten our people. Haman throws lots and is overjoyed to see fortuitous indications of success, as the month in which Moses passed is now slated for the genocide of his nation. Yet his vision was entirely incorrect, as in fact everything turned inside out! (Tractate Megillah 13b)
