Purim – The Feast of Lots – The Feast of Esther
Purim – The Feast of Lots.
The Hebrew word for Purim is “lots” in remembrance of pur (“lots”) cast by the wicked Haman. Also to determine the month and day on which the Jewish people were to be killed the lots were cast. The Jews were to be killed throughout the mighty Persian Empire. Also Purim is known as “The Feast of Esther.” Furthermore in antiquity the day is known as “Mordecai’s Day.” Purim commemorates the deliverance of God’s people at the hands of Esther and Mordecai.
Anti-Semitism is hardly a modern phenomenon. For untold centuries, Israel’s enemies have, with craft and cruel hatred, plotted the annihilation of the sons of Jacob. Yet, Israel’s detractors are the litter of many landscapes. Most noteworthy they have plotted, schemed, and counseled together, but in the end their treachery has only brought about their own demise. Especially relevant is that the only lasting achievement has been for a new holiday on the Hebrew calendar.
