The first part of this lesson consists of an overview of the history from the time of Babylon’s capture of Jerusalem in 605 BC to the end of the Old Testament. Hopefully, this will help us understand how Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther fit into the flow of history.
Discussion of the intense hatred of Jews by many people throughout history.
Discussion of how God uses even horrible events and circumstances, engineering events from behind the scenes, to prepare us to bring much glory to Him.
Discussion of how Esther’s submissive and teachable spirit brought great glory to God and great blessing to herself and to her people.
Discussion of some things that we must try our hardest to teach young girls over whom we have any influence.
