The Lesson of Purim
Purim was this past Sunday. Did you miss it? Well, it's easy to miss. After all, it's only celebrated by Jews, right? But it SHOULD mean something to you if you're a Christian because it's in the Bible, in the Book of Esther. The Book of Esther's written in a way unlike anyother book of the Bible. Martin Luther had problems with it: "I want to toss this book into the River Elbe!" he said. "It judaises too much and is full of heathenish naughtiness!" Later he came 'round to believing it was divinely inspired. Thursday we discuss why, and thus what Purim has to do with Christians. Tune in and take notes! Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson, on Jewish Roots, each Thursday 9:30-10:30 pm DST at blogtalkradio.com/fougcrew. Listen LIVE through Twitter, LinkedIn, GooglePlus and Facebook.com/fougcrew.

This prerecorded 30 minute segment of On the Money with Peter Hebert is titled "Lessons from Esther and Purim." Each year around the world, Jews read from the Book of Esther and recount the tale of horror at the prospect of evil that sought genocide, hope in the winds of political change, and triumph in the taste of victory ... even in hope against hope. Purim is celebrated, because life is good and the retelling of this unique story is sweet. Special guest Rabbi Sholom Raichik appears to provide the Jewish perspective. The Book of Esther shows us the unseen hand of God at work in protecting His people from harm. While each generation faces its unique set of challenges, two things are certain. First, God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. And second, while God's name may not appear in the text, his Name certainly was written on the hearts of those who believed and were saved.
Purim marks an important event in Jewish history, and it also tells a story of a monster that tried to eliminate Jewish people. History as a way of repeating itself and often that history can be deadly.
On today's Home Church Dave will be speaking on the story of queen Esther, Purim and three evil men who threatened Israel and the Jewish people. History is repeating itself and it's important that we all learn from the past.
