Bible Study Lesson

Most Christians are familiar with such Old Testament stories as Noah and the ark, David defeating Goliath, Daniel in the lion's den, and Joseph's coat of many colors. However, very few are familiar with the miraculous events which occurred during the reign of Queen Esther.

The book of Esther records God's intervention in the affairs of the nation of Israel, literally keeping them from being wiped off the face of the earth. Had Israel been annihilated, the Royal Line would have been severed. Had that happened, Christ would never have become the fulfillment of the Old Testament Passover Feast (Calvary) and the Feast of Firstfruits (Resurrection), thus preventing Him from fulfilling His mission here on earth (1 Peter 1:18-22). Believers would still be in their sins and possessing the wrong status to spend eternity in heaven. (1 Corinthians 15:14, 17)

This lesson examines the following amazing details in the life of Queen Esther:

  • Why the previous queen of Persia (Queen Vasti) was dethroned
  • How a Jewish woman became queen in the pagan land of Persia, a vast kingdom which stretched from India to Ethiopia.
  • Why Esther, and her uncle Mordecai, were living in Persia
  • Why there was an attempt to annihilate the entire nation of Israel
  • Why Esther made that famous statement—"If I perish, I perish"
  • How the Lord raised up Esther to preserve the nation of Israel, thereby enabling Christ to, one day, in real time and space, fulfill the role of Kinsman Redeemer. If you are unfamiliar with this title, I recommend listening to the Kinsman-Redeemer, a vital study in understanding how the Old and New Testaments dovetail together to tell one continuing story, namely, the Fall and Redemption of Planet Earth and its inhabitants. 
  • How Mordecai was elevated to such an important position in Persia, second only to the King.

Comments Are In:

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.

Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!

David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."

Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.

Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."

Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!

Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).

Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.

John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.

Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.

Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.

Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
