Jewish Identity in the Scriptures (The Book of Esther)

Christians accept the Book of Esther as the eternal Word of God.  The Jew and the Judeo-Christian love the Book of Esther because the Jews physically murdered 75,000 of their own enemies; this is largely the interpretation of the book of Esther for those inculcated into the idea the modern Jews are “God’s chosen people.” has long argued modern Jews are, in fact, of the synagogue of Satan, the seed of the serpent, and the children of the Devil.

The Book of Esther is a bomb-shell revelation once a reader accepts the point-of-view of Jesus Christ regarding the Jews (Rev 3:9, Rev 2:9, John 8:44).   If the reader can adopt, even for the moment, the idea that those who call themselves Jews are not the holy people the claim to be (with the endorsement of Judeo-Christians), the Book of Esther takes on a whole new meaning.

The Book of Esther is void of any mention of God, the Patriarchs, the Law, Moses or the nation of Israel. Esther hides her Jewish identity and marries a pagan and a foreigner.  The Persian empire — for whatever reason — had developed a distaste for the Jews.  Mordecai — the Jewish hand behind Esther (also Jewish) — used Esther’s beauty to access the center of power (the King of Persia).  Neither Esther nor Mordecai revealed the Jewish identity of Esther until it became useful.

Once they had the power, the Jews used legal power to murder 75,000 people whom they identified as their enemies, people who had not (according to the book of Esther) raised a finger against the Jews. Esther records no event in which Jews were actually attacked or murdered — it was a “potential” for murder, yes, codified by Law.  But it was murder that never occurred.

Upon the successful slaughter of their enemies, a new Jewish national holiday was initiated — Purim.  Purim is devoid of any references to the Law, the writings of Moses, the Patriarchs, David, or the God of Israel.  It is a completely secular and Jewish holiday, giving no credit to the Almighty, centered around the power of the Jews and the slaughter of their enemies.

The Jews in Esther not once pray to the God of the Patriarchs.  They fasted, but even atheists and Hindus fast — there is nothing in Esther that indicates the Jews asked the Almighty for help or mercy or forgiveness.

The Jews expressed an identity devoid of reference to the Almighty, centered around their own existence and power, and celebrated the slaughter of their enemies.  This core Jewish identity — based on the Holy Scriptures — must be brought to bear on the entire history of the Jewish race since the events of of Esther and since the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

The Word of God tells us what the Jew is, if we have ears to hear and eyes to see.
