Gather summer study

Lessons from Esther

The book of Esther is one of the latest writings of the Old Testament, perhaps written to inspire Jews who had been scattered in the diaspora. The narrative takes place in the court of the King of Persia, King Ahasuerus. Some think that it was written to explain and establish the Jewish festival of Purim.

This three session-study is brought to us by Kay Ward, a bishop of the Moravian Church who lives in a Moravian retirement community in Watertown, Wisconsin. Ward wrote the popular ninth-month study in Gather magazine, In Good Company: Stories of Biblical Women.
