Queen Esther Bible verse free printables for kids

Beautiful. Obedient. Courageous. The true life story of Hadassah, or Esther as we often know her, is an incredible story of a brave young orphan who grew up to become a queen and a hero to her people. What a fabulous role model for our girls. The book of Esther in the Bible has always fascinated me. God’s name is not mentioned, but incredible ‘coincidences’ just ‘seem to happen’ out of the blue. Just for fun one day, make a list of them all. See God’s hand behind the scenes, clearly orchestrating all these seemingly unrelated events, just as He does in our lives and in the lives of our children.

QUEEN ESTHER ~ BIBLE VERSES

Esther  Read the true story of this brave queen who saved her people – she has her own book!

Esther 4:14  For if you hold your peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but you and your father’s house shall be destroyed; and who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

QUEEN ESTHER ~ DEVOTIONALS / INFORMATION

Esther – devotional  (whatsinthebible) My daughter found it on the rack at the consignment shop. A beautiful, red, royal cloak! Needless to say, she wore it home. She was a princess! No, she was the Queen. I informed her I was the Queen of the house, but she didn’t like that too much. She set up two thrones, one for her, and one for the King. And then I asked her, “What kind of Queen are you going to be? Mean and evil like some from the fairy tales?” “No, Mama. I’m Queen Esther.” It’s the story of fairy tales: ashes to beauty, poverty to wealth, an obscure girl becomes the beloved Queen. But Esther is not the name of a cartoon character in a movie. Esther was a real woman with blood and bones, and someone who was willing to stand for her people during a turbulent time in history.

Esther  (Chuck Missler) The famed foiling of the wicked plot of Haman to blot out the Jews is, of course, one of the more dramatic narratives in the Bible… The entire drama has deeper roots. Haman was a royal Amalekite, a descendant of the very king Agag whom King Saul was supposed to have slain (1 Sam 15:1-28). If Saul had followed his instructions, there wouldn’t have been a Haman. For Saul’s failure, his kingdom was taken away. Mordecai, too, a key benefactor in the tale, was a result of David having refused to take vengeance upon Shimei so many years earlier. It was Esther’s marriage to the King of Persia that ultimately led to the rebuilding of Jerusalem.

It picks up from the time of King Solomon to the decline and eventual exile of Israel.
