Queen Vashti Deposed by King Ahasuerus

1: 1-22

The book begins with a banquet given by King Ahasuerus. The events of the banquet led to the king’s disapproval of Queen Vashti. This event is vital in understanding the book as a whole. The anger that the king displays toward Vashti, and her subsequent departure, sets the stage for Esther to take decisive action and deliver her people.
