The book of Esther begins with a luxuriant feast hosted by the Persian king Ahasuerus, or Xerxes. As Alistair Begg points out, this king must have thought that bigger was better. While Scripture doesn’t challenge earthly rulers or provoke us to despise authority, it does recognize that God ordains the rise and fall of all nations and kings. Everyone from ancient to modern times will someday bow before the ultimate authority of Jesus Christ, who commands us to spread His kingdom.
