Bible Discussion 15th October 2015

Leader: Edwin Ashforth
The Book of Esther
Chapter 1 9 – 22
Edwin followed on from his talk last Sunday when we had heard about King Xerxes giving a banquet when everyone drank as much as they wished to verse 10 when “he was in high spirits” he summons his wife Queen Vashti to appear before him and his friends – wearing her crown ??? and nothing else ??? but she refuses his command – he is furious – feels humiliated and so confers with seven nobles of Persia – wise men who advised the King – among them was Memukam – the rest of the story is interesting …. We discussed at great length equal rights of men/women the role of women in society then and now – a very interesting evening.
