Saturday Night at the Movies on Wejew.com: Esther

The Story of Esther

Following the conquest of Babylon, the King of Persia gives a banquet for his people at which he requests the presence of his wife, Vashti.  As she refuses the King's demand, Ahasuerus disowns Vashti and goes in search of her replacement. In his harem, he meets the young girl Esther who immediately captivates him with her charm and beauty.  

Unaware of her Jewish heritage, King Ahasuerus falls in love with Esther.  Esther then reveals to Ahasuerus that she is Jewish and asks him to show her people mercy, because of a planned genocide of the Jews by the King's right hand man, Haman.
