Lecture Description

The Persian king traditionally identified as the husband of Esther is Xerxes the Great, who succeeded Darius and fought the Second Persian War. While Persian records make no direct reference to the events described in the Book of Esther, the chronology of Xerxes's career is fully compatible with the story described in the famous book of the Hebrew scriptures.
