Furcht vor Vernichtung und der ewige Bund: Das Buch Ester im Judentum und in jüdischer Theologie

A large number of exegetes, ballads, poems, es- says, arts, etc. have been composed on it, in all times and places, alongside the Jewish history and culture. Esther expresses one of the worst fears of the Jew- ish people: fear for complete annihilation, which is also well documented in the Hebrew Bible as well as in some extra-biblical sources (e.g., “Israel Stele”, Moabite Stone). Esther replies to that fear, and forwards the theological mes- sage that God never leaves Israel.
