Estranged People

Mordechai & Haman

  • Mordechai & Haman
This scene commemorates Purim, and serves as a reminder of the powerful story of God’s protection of His people.
from Wikipedia: King Ahasuerus (of Persia) learns of the services rendered by Mordecai in the earlier plot against his life. Ahasuerus asks whether anything was done for Mordecai and is told that he received no recognition for saving the king's life. Just then, Haman appears, and King Ahasuerus asks him what should be done for the man that the king wishes to honor. Thinking that the king is referring to Haman himself, Haman says that the honoree should be dressed in the king's royal robes and led around on the king's royal horse. To Haman's horror, the king instructs Haman to render such honors to Mordecai.
