Reply To: Analyze one of the supplementary Bible passages in light of the course content. Do you see evidence of the Hebraic map? Did anything about the passage surprise you? Was there any part of the passage that stuck out to you in particular?
What I find interesting about the book of mention is the author’s lack of God’s voice, action, or even God’s presence. With that said, it doesn’t mean God was not working behind the scenes. Personally, I find that very encouraging in my own life. Although I may not be hearing God speak, move, or even at times, God’s presence, I firmly believe God is working behind the scenes for good. With your take on responsibility, Esther had to trust in God’s protection when she took on the responsibility to discuss with the king. Esther’s role as queen is an encouragement to stand up for injustice and trust that God will bring good.
