Mordecai’s Life-Saving Letter

Investigating Writing and the Bible

This writing saved lives.

 

 

 

Scripture #14 -Esther 8:8

Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s ring: for the writing which is written in the king’s name, and sealed with the king’s ring, may no man reverse.

 

This writing was allowed by King Ahasuerus at the request of Queen Esther as a counter-measure to an earlier decree that all Jews were to be killed. A letter was written by Mordecai with the king’s seal letting Jews know that they could defend themselves.
