Intro
Esther is about the girl who came to be the queen of Persia. It is a book that gives her story of how she became sovereign, starting out during a banquet that lasted one hundred and eighty days. This banquet was put on by the wealthy King Xerxes to show off to people the power and fortune that he held. The queen, at the time, denied to appear at this banquet and was ordered to be put to death, because of how angry the King was at this. The pursuit for a new queen is now on.

Haman thought he was talking about him, so he came up with an incredible reward that he wanted to get. Little did he know the reward was not for him, it was for Mordecai. When Haman finds this out he is livid that it was not for him, and especially because it was for Mordecai.
The second banquet comes now, and the king tells Esther that she can whatever, asking her what she wants again. She tells King Xerxes about Haman’s plans to kill the Jews. She announces that she is Jewish, so they must kill her also. The king is furious and orders Haman to be put to death at the spot Haman had made for Mordecai to be killed.
Mordecai becomes the new viceroy and takes Haman’s spot. The Jews then receive full security. Esther, with this single act, saves all of her Jewish people. This tells us that Esther was very daring in doing this, and served her God in a great way.
