Bibi Showdown With Iran A ‘Replay Of Bible Story’

Christian supporters of Israel see Tuesday’s address to Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as more than just a political speech. They’re calling it a “wake-up call,” and a “warning,” one that appears eerily similar to another from 2,500 years ago in which the Jewish people found themselves in grave danger. With the Feast of Purim and Netanyahu’s speech converging in the same week, there are lessons to be drawn from history, they say.

Purim celebrates Queen Esther’s brave intervention to stop a plot that, if allowed to go forward, would have led to a genocide against the Jews. But is the biblical story of Esther replaying thousands of years later? The threat Israel faces today does include some of the same national players, the same dates and the same stakes, according to Bible scholars and Christian friends of Israel.
