["On Demand" Episode. Pre-recorded. Do not call in.]Purim is this Wednesday the 23rd?. Did you know that? Well, it's easy to forget about it. 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 the 17th, we'll 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.
