Hidden meanings in the Megillah of Esther:
“It is He who reveals the deep and secret things…” ( Daniel 2:22)
In the prophetic narrative of Esther–Hadassah (הֲדַסָּ֗ה – استير) the people of Israel are miraculously delivered from physical annihilation. This deliverance is a foreshadowing of the great deliverance of Israel and of all the nations, peoples and families of the earth that began when our Messiah was supernaturally conceived in the womb of his mother Miryam.
This miraculous conception—where the promised one was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of his mother Miryam—occurred in Nazret (נצרת) of Galilee on the first day (night) of Chanukkah (6 BCE). He was conceived at the exact moment that the first candle was lit in the house of Miryam at the very beginning of Chanukkah. Then forty weeks later, in the village of the messiah’s ancestor King David, he was born in Beit-Lechem (בית לחם) on the first day (night) of Sukkot (5 BCE).
To this purpose—the testimony of the redemptive life and works of Yeshua ben Yosef ben David—there is an incredible amount of prophetic hidden witness (סודים sodit-סודות-sodim) that can be found in the little Scroll of Esther. Four of these are:
