Esther’s Royal Power Play

The Megillah in Depth, Chapter 7, Part 2


Esther’s Royal Power Play: The Megillah in Depth, Chapter 7, Part 2

As zero hour arrives, Esther lifts her eyes to petition Heaven and then, authoritatively and with great emotion, addresses Achashvairosh with piercing words. Tactfully, she dramatically pleads for her own life, only afterwards petitioning the King to spare her nation. Now self-identifying herself as Jewish – she also reveals royal pedigree. Demonstrating that the adversary cares not for the King’s welfare, as slavery would have been far more profitable, Esther brilliantly maneuvers; and without confronting the King, devastatingly turns the tables on Haman.
