The book of Esther tells the story celebrated at Purim of how the young Jewish Queen Esther risked her life to save her people from destruction through a plot laid by wicked Haman, advisor to the Persian King Ahasuerus.

Even though His name is never mentioned, God is present and actively working behind the scenes, arranging every event to bring about His divine purpose for the salvation and preservation of His chosen people, the Jews.
