If God promises to forgives us and love us, no matter what do, then what was the point of all of the rules — or the “law” — in the Old Testament?

Key Verses: Galatians 3:15-29 Key Words: rules, law, obedience, Abraha…

Key Verses: Esther 4:4…
 
In chapter 3 of Esther, the main action begins to happen, as a sinister plot to destroy the entire nation of captive Jews becomes a reality.

Our everyday anger is easily reflected in the brutal nature of Haman, …
