Bible Stories: Queen Esther

Esther prayed to the Lord to save her people from destruction

Queen Esther

Esther (born Hadassah) is a Hebrew woman who becomes queen of Persia around 475 B.C. and thwarts the destruction of her people. Her story is one of courage, strength, and faith in God. The story forms the core of what has become the Jewish festival of Purim.
