Speaker 3:

Alright, so this one. So Debbie is asking, did Esther and the King of Persia have children? Show me the scripture source.

Speaker 1:

Esther, that is a fantastic question and I’m going to be and honest with you, I don’t know. The Bible doesn’t say that they had children as far as I know. And I was thinking maybe she was in the line of Jesus, but I don’t see that either. Am I mistaken? Is Boez one of the descendants of Jesus or ancestors of Jesus? Yes. Do you know that one off the top of your head? I’m trying to.

Speaker 2:

Boaz is.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I’m just kidding. Yes. Then he would have been on the line. But I don’t have that off the top of my head because I don’t see it. In the Gospels, there are two lineages of Jesus, and I think it’s from his mother’s side and his father’s side as far as Joseph and then Mary. And I thought he was in there. But when you search for his name, I don’t see it in there. So I’m sorry, I don’t know my head.

Speaker 3:

I’m not talking about Ruth and Boaz here. We’re talking about Esther.

Speaker 1:

Oh, I’m getting my female the two books. I’m so sorry. You’re going to see my humanity. I don’t know everything.

Speaker 2:

We’re talking about art exercise.

Speaker 1:

I’m sorry.

Speaker 3:

As far as I know.

Speaker 1:

There’s no mention in the Bible as far as Esther and Arctic Circuses having any children. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did, but to my knowledge, there’s no Bible versus sharing that they had any children. But if they did, they would have ended up possibly being an exile, possibly being captive eventually in the Babylonian Kingdom. So I don’t have a Bible verse for you there, so I apologize, but yeah, we don’t know. We have to ask God when we get to heaven. Share, Wendy, any other thoughts?

Speaker 2:

Yeah. I mean, I think you’re writing that we don’t have any biblical record of her having kids, but it would have been shocking, given what seems to be her faithfulness to the Lord, that the Lord would have had her bearing her whole life. The Bible suggests usually that that’s almost a curse. And God broke the curse for Rebecca down to list for Hannah, for so many people. God blesses them, but give them a child. Esther is known as one of these heroes of the Bible. So why would God have her bearing.

Speaker 1:

Yes, unless he knew that God in his mercy didn’t let it happen because he knew it was going to happen with Babylon down the line. Yeah, exactly. Sorry. Babylon already happened, man. I’m just I’m sorry.

Speaker 3:

We’re glad it’s Friday, right?

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

It’s easy to think of that. Babylon exile time.

Speaker 1:

Yes, exactly. Because after Babylon, you’re right. But yeah, I mean, they would have been the ones then to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild. And so, I don’t know, maybe that was the troubles’ time. Definitely. Maybe God and his mercy knew something. And in her case.

Speaker 3:

Maybe she didn’t.

Speaker 1:

We don’t know.
