The Great Banquet
Esther 5:1-8 // Today, we slow down in our narrative and examine an important theme of the book of Esther--the banquet motif. The frequent mention of banquets in Esther fits in the larger context of the banquet theme in the entire bible, culminating in the Messianic Banquet that we look forward to. God prepares an abundant feast for us and invites us to sit at the king's table as his heirs. This is truly amazing grace!
