watch what you say against Israel!

Megillat Esther

In 9:10 the Passuk tells us the Jews killed the 10 sons of Haman. Rashi says it is brought down in Seder Olam that these 10 sons of Haman had disparaged Israel, when Koresh had allowed the jews to return and begin rebuilding the Temple, then Ahashverosh took over and Haman came to power and he wrote accusations against the jews to stop them from returning and rebuilding.

The Megilla is indicating that they are singled out here as having been slain by the jews, despite many other people having been killed as well, specifically to tell us that they were slain as retribution for their false accusations against the jews and Israel.

Gods got our back, You want to mess with us, you are also messing with God. he particularly takes offense at those who disparage His nation and country. Do so at your own risk.

While I am a Christian you may find the following interesting. I have written a book on biblical history. The name of the book is "The Fourth Day: Why the Bible is Historically Accurate". Presently, biblical history uses the events of the Bible and the theories of secular historians to develop the biblical timeline. I take a unique approach in my book by using only information from the Bible to develop the biblical timeline. By doing this I have uncovered several historical questions. Did the Persian Empire only last 21 years or over 200 years? Is there a 300 year period in Egypt's history, shortly after the Biblical Exodus, in which Egypt did not have a Pharoah? Was Ahasuerus of the book of Esther, claimed by experts to be Xerxes, actually Cyrus? My book can be viewed on lulu.com at the following address: http://www.lulu.com/dmthompson
