The Feast of Esther or Purim is one of the feasts of the people. This holiday was created by Mordecai in the Book of Esther to celebrate God’s rescue of the Jewish people in ancient Persia. Esther is a gripping story of dirty politics, wild parties, assassination plots, a beautiful queen, a true hero, and a scoundrel. Since the time of Queen Esther, Jews have celebrated Purim with riotous feasting, joyful laughter, and gifts of food for the poor.
Purim’s spiritual significance is both profound and prophetic. In this chapter in the Feast Book, you will learn how a Bible Code hidden in the Book of Esther was fulfilled in the 20th century! You will be introduced to the Gematria, the numerical value of Hebrew letters, and relive the ancient drama of Esther.
… that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, in every clan, province, and city, and that these days of Purim should never fall into disuse among the Jews, nor should the commemoration of these days cease among their descendants. —Esther 9:28 [ESV]
