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.
Purim, Scroll of Esther

I was looking forward to the rest of the chapters! Any way we can watch the rest, if any? Reply Staff June 29, 2020

Sure, look at the right side of the player, for links to the videos for the other chapters. Reply

Thanks for the quick response. I did but the videos stopped in the middle of chapter 7. The rest of the chapters aren’t in the queue or in the section. Reply

With Hashem’s help I plan to continue the series next winter in the weeks leading up to Purim. This was, and will be done annually until I finish the entire Megillah Reply
