In chapter 2 of Esther, we meet the title character who is drafted into Xerxes’ harem and made queen! In chapter 3, the noble Haman is slighted by Mordecai which sets off a plot to exterminate all the Jewish people from Persia. How could God’s providence be working in these events? How might God be working in the confusing events of today?

Esther 3:1; Exodus 17:8-16; 1 Samuel 15:17-19. Who was Haman? What was the history of the Israelites and the Amalekites?
