After having studied Galatians in our previous online study. We are now turning to the Old Testament and looking over the next 6 weeks at the Book of Esther. Beginning this Wednesday at 7:30pm via Zoom
Each week using the BOOK BY BOOK series we listen to a short analysis on each chapter, followed by an open floor candid discussion from the group lead by the Rev Sam Campbell.
Book by Book: Esther episode titles:
1. The Abuse of Power (Chapter 1)
2. Esther: Married to Power (Chapter 2)
3. Haman: Corrupted by Power (Chapter 3)
4. Mordecai: Using the Power (Chapters 4-6)
5. Some Justice through Power (Chapters 7-8)
6. The Church under Divine Power (Chapters 9-10)
The very fact that the Living God is not mentioned once in Esther might seem strange, but it is no accident. As we go through our daily lives we do not always see the provident hand of our heavenly Father or the glorious rule of our ascended LORD Jesus or the comforting, strengthening care of the Holy Spirit. By the time we get to the end of the ancient story of Esther we will be full of praise and worship for we will see that as children of the Living God we are always kept in His Almighty care. The book of Esther teaches us that the Living God is hard at work in all the complexities of our lives.
Book by Book is presented by Paul Blackham and the late Richard Bewes. With special guest Ruth Chan.
