Esther and the Unseen Hand of God [The Hero of the Story]
Is God at work when we can’t see Him? That’s the question we’re discussing as we look at the book of Esther on The Hero of the Story. Listen in as we discuss:
- Why we need to not portray Esther’s ascension to the throne as a beauty pageant—especially with kids
- How we see God at work in all events in Scripture, even when He does not openly make an appearance in the passage
- How Esther points us to Jesus
- How genuine faith is far different than naïve optimism or blind faith
If you are studying along with The Gospel Project at your church, this passage is studied in Unit 18, Session 1, “God Saves His People Through a Queen” (Adults and Students), and “Esther Saved Her People” (Preschool and Kids).
