Reading Note – Esther 5

  • Esther was tactful. Mordecai had the king’s favor, so she couldn’t simply accuse him. She had to set the mood, so she invited them to a feast, and at the feast invited them to another feast.
  • Haman was a very proud man. He was glad that the Queen thought so highly of him as to invite him to a feast with the king and herself, but he thought Mordecai’s refusal to bow to him was ruining everything. 
  • Haman decided to hang Mordecai the next day. Was he so proud that he could not stand one person’s refusal – in the entire kingdom? I would like to think he did it because Mordecai was disobeying the king, but that’s not it at all.
