They all place the Crucifixion on the 14th of Nissan. Many thing this is quoting Euripides Bacchants. But I think that is possibly actually an allusion to Ecclesiastes. Esther is being read inside, out!
The Spiritual man will see Esther as a warning to be watchful towards an ungodly powerhungry Jewish dispora, that rejects the culture, of their host, usurps government, and commits genocide, like the Bolshieviks, and Jews in Spain did for years! Am I the only person who is bothered by the book of Esther? I read this book and I keep wondering where God fits in. They killed seventy-five thousand of them but did not lay their hands on the plunder. Jesus and the apostles never mention it. I just wonder if it is…. I can see why you might be uncomfortable with the Violence there, but it was in Self Defense, even in the New Testament Jesus says we should have Swords.

Frankly the Torah itself has more questionable Violence then Esther. Do you have a list with all the books of the OT mentioned even if not quoted in the NT?

Here is some background thinking and an answer from my perspective. There is a very popular view that essentially says that Christians cannot properly understand the Old Testament unless it is read through the lens of the New Testament. There is a sense in which this is a sound and helpful idea. But the way it is commonly applied leads to strained interpretation that many words that the Old Testament authors used and their authorial intent based on those words. One of the benefits of your study is to expose a way that this approach impoverishes many Old Testament texts.
In the Old Testament books as a whole, there are vast portions that are not only not quoted, but also are not alluded to in the New Testament.

If the New Testament is our only lens, how does it help with those passages? Ordinary Christians who want to read and understand Scripture for themselves receive little or no help. Your study points to the need to equip people to just read each text for what it says, not to look somewhere else for understanding of that text. The authors human and divine , wrote with an intention in each text and wrote in a way that ordinary people, guided by the Spirit, could understand that intention. If Christians are trained to examine the text well and think about the implications of the words, they will understand.

What a beautiful picture of redemption. Your email address will not be published.
