1. Before she was a queen, Esther did not have any parents. What had happened to them when she was a child?

Answer: they had died

2. The king was very displeased with his wife for not coming to a party. What did he do to Queen Vashti?

Answer: he banished her

The king had commanded his wife to come to a party in front of all his princes. He wanted to show her off because she was very beautiful. Queen Vashti said no and did not come. It made the king very angry. The king's advisors were afraid that because the queen disobeyed the king, she would encourage other women to dishonor their husbands.

They told the king to send her away, and the king did. He realized later it was a horrible mistake.
3. After Queen Vashti was punished, what did the king's advisors suggest he do to find a new queen?

Answer: have a beauty contest

When Queen Vashti was sent away, the king was very sad and angry. His advisors suggested he have a beauty contest and went out to find the most beautiful ladies in the land so he could select a new wife. Esther and a few other ladies were chosen as the most beautiful from around the kingdom.

They were taken to the palace for the king to select a new bride. During their stay they were given many beautiful things. When the time came for Esther to appear before the king, Esther pleased the king and he selected her to be his wife.
4. Esther was told not to tell anyone she was a Jew.

Esther's cousin, Mordecai, told her before she left for the palace not to tell anyone that she was a Jew. She married the king and no one knew. Later when the Jews were in danger this protected Esther.
5. In the kingdom there was an evil man named Haman who wanted people to bow down to him. Why did he hate Mordecai?

Answer: Mordecai would not bow to Haman.

Haman loved attention. He was the second most powerful man in the kingdom. The king honored him by putting him above all the other princes, giving him special clothes, and by decreeing a law that everyone should bow down to him. Mordecai did not bow because Jews only bowed to the true God. When Haman heard this he was very angry.
6. Mordecai had saved the king's life. How did the king honor him?

Answer: He dressed Mordecai in royal robes and had a parade.

Mordecai had kept some very evil men from killing the king. The king asked Haman what he should do to honor the man that pleases him. Haman told the king to dress the man up in royal robes and have a parade telling everyone this is the man who pleases the king. The king was so pleased he had Haman do it. Haman was shocked when he found out it was Mordecai.
7. Haman hated the Jews so much he told the king to sign a law to kill them all. Haman made a special plan to kill Mordecai. What did he plan to do?

Answer: He wanted to hang Mordecai

Haman was so upset when he had honored Mordecai for the king, he went to his wife and his wife told him to kill Mordecai. They built a tall gallows, and planned to hang Mordecai when they got the opportunity. Haman convinced the king to write a law to kill all the Jews by telling him that these people had no respect for the king or his kingdom.

The king agreed and let Haman make the law. A reward was put out for anyone who killed or assisted the death of the Jewish people.
8. Mordecai found out about Haman's plan and went to Esther. Haman and the king did not know Esther was a Jew. What did Mordecai ask Esther to do?

Answer: Go to the king and ask him to save her people.

When Mordecai found out about Haman's plan he tore his clothes and cried. Esther found out about it and asked him why he was so sad. Mordecai told her of Haman's law and how all the Jews would be killed. He begged her to go to the king, but Esther knew anyone who saw the king without permission could be killed. Mordecai told her she had become queen for such a time as this. Esther had her people pray and when she went to the king, the king showed her favor.
9. Esther invited Haman and the king to two parties. At the end of the party the king told her she could have anything she wanted. What did Esther ask for?

Answer: That the king save the lives of her people.

When the king showed Esther favor by holding out his golden rod, he asked Esther what she wanted. Esther invited him and Haman to a party. The first party was so good, the king told her to ask for anything she wanted. Esther asked for them to join her again for dinner. On the second night, Esther told the king if she had pleased him, to spare the lives of her and her people. Haman and the king did not know she was a Jew.

The king was so angry he asked Esther who had planned this evil thing. Esther told him it was the wicked Haman.
10. Esther and the king lived happily ever after! What happened to Haman and Mordacai?

Answer: Haman was killed and Mordecai got his job.

The king took Haman and had him killed the same way Haman had planned to kill Mordecai. He then took Haman's ring and gave it to Mordecai, making Mordecai the second most powerful man in the kingdom. A new law was written for the Jews to kill anyone who threated their lives or their homes. Everyone was so afraid, the Jews did not have to worry about anyone trying to harm them. Mordecai became a great ruler and Esther became a very great queen.

The Jews celebrated by giving Esther her own holiday because she was the brave queen who saved her people.
