Esther Is Not A Theological Book
Note- When I mention Ezra- Nehemiah happening before Esther, I am referring to the beginning of Ezra's account where Cyrus gives the decree to rebuild the temple and the building of the second temple.
- Vashti's motives are unknown
- Be careful of Identitarianism in Biblical and LDS Scholarship
- Esther risks her life for her people
- The Book of Esther is built on Irony
- The Festival of Purim is instituted where the Book of Esther is read
