Ahasuerus

Sort by:
Ahasuerus: (4th century BCE) King of Persia, husband of Vashti and Esther. At the advice of his minister Haman, he issued a decree that all Jews should be killed. At Esther's insistence, he issued a second decree, allowing the Jews to defend themselves, rendering the first decree ineffective, as recorded in the Scroll of Esther which is read every year on Purim.
Esther did not want to be taken to the palace. Not only was she an upright Jewish girl who abhorred the notion of marriage to a gentile vile king, she was actually already married!
