The story of Esther is set in the time period of Israel’s exile in the great Kingdom of Persia. There is a threat to their survival as a people from an anti-semitic leader. As the narrative unfolds, the process of the redemption of a doomed people unfolds. Finally, the perpetrators of the planned genocide are judged and executed.

The story is a parallel to the final confrontation in which Israel will face their implacable enemies. The details are unmistakenly a parable of the Kingdom of God overcoming the rule of men
