Mordecai Uncovers a Plot to Kill King Ahasuerus

2:21 to 3:6

Mordecai had a place of reputation at the king’s gate. When the women gathered, he overheard a plot to kill the king. Mordecai told Esther and the plot was stopped. This event would play a major role later in the story in Chapter 6. This act of courage on the part of both Mordecai and Esther reflects their loyalty to King Ahasuerus, who possessed the political power to either destroy or deliver them.30
