  • - KRIS VALLOTTON: I'D LIKE TO
  • 00:00:17.010 --> 00:00:17.220
  • PROPOSE TO YOU THAT
  • 00:00:17.220 --> 00:00:18.250
  • NOBILITY AND ROYALTY
  • 00:00:18.250 --> 00:00:20.100

  • TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN...
  • 00:00:21.120 --> 00:00:22.140

  • 00:00:28.110 --> 00:00:30.280
  • THE CROSS DIDN'T JUST FORGIVE
  • 00:00:30.280 --> 00:00:31.260
  • YOUR SIN; IT TRANSFORMED
  • 00:00:31.260 --> 00:00:32.220
  • YOUR BEING.
  • 00:00:32.220 --> 00:00:34.120

  • I'M THRILLED THAT BETHEL IS A
  • 00:00:48.240 --> 00:00:49.150
  • PART OF THE TBN FAMILY.
  • 00:00:49.150 --> 00:00:50.080
  • AS WE CONTINUE OUR SERIES ON
  • 00:00:50.080 --> 00:00:52.110
  • THE THEME "IDENTITY," I WANNA
  • 00:00:52.110 --> 00:00:53.220
  • SHARE MY MESSAGE ON THE
  • 00:00:53.220 --> 00:00:55.030
  • RESPONSIBILITY OF ROYALTY.
  • 00:00:55.030 --> 00:00:57.010
  • OUR IDENTITY AS SONS AND
  • 00:00:57.010 --> 00:00:58.090
  • DAUGHTERS OF THE KING MEANS
  • 00:00:58.090 --> 00:00:59.190
  • THAT WE CAN EXPERIENCE AND
  • 00:00:59.190 --> 00:01:01.000
  • ENJOY THE PRIVILEGES OF LIVING
  • 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:02.210
  • BUT I'D LIKE TO PROPOSE THAT
  • 00:01:05.130 --> 00:01:06.080
  • THE CLOSER WE GET TO THE
  • 00:01:06.080 --> 00:01:07.080
  • PALACE, THE GREATER OUR
  • 00:01:07.080 --> 00:01:07.260
  • RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:01:07.260 --> 00:01:09.080
  • BECAUSE OF THIS, WHEN WE SEE
  • 00:01:09.080 --> 00:01:09.290
  • INJUSTICE, WE RESPOND
  • 00:01:09.290 --> 00:01:10.200
  • DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:01:10.200 --> 00:01:12.060

  • I WANNA TALK TO YOU TONIGHT
  • 00:01:30.090 --> 00:01:30.290
  • ABOUT THE RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:01:30.290 --> 00:01:31.220
  • SO, IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5:21, THE
  • 00:01:34.290 --> 00:01:37.050
  • BIBLE SAYS, "HE..." --
  • 00:01:37.050 --> 00:01:39.140
  • SPEAKING OF JESUS -- "
  • 00:01:39.140 --> 00:01:40.030
  • ...MADE HIM WHO KNEW NO SIN
  • 00:01:40.030 --> 00:01:40.230
  • TO BE SIN ON OUR BEHALF,
  • 00:01:40.230 --> 00:01:42.070
  • THAT WE MIGHT BECOME THE
  • 00:01:42.070 --> 00:01:43.060
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN
  • 00:01:43.060 --> 00:01:44.250
  • CHRIST JESUS."
  • 00:01:44.250 --> 00:01:45.280
  • [CHUCKLE]
  • 00:01:45.280 --> 00:01:46.160
  • HOW MANY KNOW THAT YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:47.130
  • JUST RIGHTEOUS, YOU'RE THE
  • 00:01:47.130 --> 00:01:48.160
  • RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN
  • 00:01:48.160 --> 00:01:49.040
  • CHRIST JESUS?
  • 00:01:49.040 --> 00:01:51.080
  • YOU'RE NO LONGER A SINNER;
  • 00:01:51.080 --> 00:01:51.270
  • YOU'RE A SAINT.
  • 00:01:51.270 --> 00:01:53.050
  • WHEN YOU RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:01:53.050 --> 00:01:54.230
  • YOU WERE TRANSFORMED FROM
  • 00:01:54.230 --> 00:01:56.140
  • SINNER TO SAINT.
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:01:57.280
  • IT'S NOT EVEN IN YOUR NATURE TO
  • 00:01:57.280 --> 00:01:59.120
  • SIN ANYMORE.
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:01.040
  • WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS SO MANY
  • 00:02:01.040 --> 00:02:02.000
  • TIMES THAT, LITERALLY, THE
  • 00:02:02.000 --> 00:02:03.130
  • CROSS DIDN'T JUST FORGIVE YOUR
  • 00:02:03.130 --> 00:02:05.010
  • SIN, IT TRANSFORMED YOUR BEING.
  • 00:02:05.010 --> 00:02:07.180
  • YOU BECAME A NEW CREATION.
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:09.260
  • OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY AND
  • 00:02:09.260 --> 00:02:11.140
  • ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW.
  • 00:02:11.140 --> 00:02:13.230
  • IN 1 PETER 2:9, IT SAYS THAT:
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:15.280
  • "...YOU ARE A CHOSEN RACE, A
  • 00:02:15.280 --> 00:02:17.090
  • ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY
  • 00:02:17.090 --> 00:02:19.110
  • NATION, A PEOPLE FOR GOD'S
  • 00:02:19.110 --> 00:02:21.030
  • OWN POSSESSION..."
  • 00:02:21.030 --> 00:02:22.290
  • YOU'RE A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD.
  • 00:02:22.290 --> 00:02:24.110
  • HOW MANY KNOW IN THE OLD
  • 00:02:24.110 --> 00:02:25.070
  • TESTAMENT THE LEVITICAL PRIESTS
  • 00:02:25.070 --> 00:02:26.080
  • WERE A PRIESTHOOD?
  • 00:02:26.080 --> 00:02:28.060
  • BUT YOU'RE NOT JUST A
  • 00:02:28.060 --> 00:02:28.250
  • PRIESTHOOD; YOU'RE A
  • 00:02:28.250 --> 00:02:29.200
  • ROYAL PRIESTHOOD.
  • 00:02:32.110 --> 00:02:35.110
  • YOUR DAD ISN'T A PRESIDENT;
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:36.010
  • HE'S KING OF KINGS.
  • 00:02:36.240 --> 00:02:39.240
  • HOW MANY KNOW YOU MARRIED
  • 00:02:39.240 --> 00:02:40.130
  • INTO THE FAMILY.
  • 00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:43.110
  • YOU WERE ADOPTED, YOU GOT
  • 00:02:43.110 --> 00:02:44.150
  • MARRIED INTO THE FAMILY,
  • 00:02:44.150 --> 00:02:45.100
  • AND YOU'RE A KING'S DAUGHTER
  • 00:02:45.100 --> 00:02:47.160
  • OR SON.
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:48.080
  • THAT MAKES YOU ROYALTY.
  • 00:02:48.120 --> 00:02:51.120
  • THAT'S A GOOD WORD
  • 00:02:51.120 --> 00:02:52.070
  • RIGHT THERE ALREADY.
  • 00:02:52.070 --> 00:02:53.120
  • MESSAGE COULD BE OVER RIGHT
  • 00:02:53.120 --> 00:02:54.160
  • NOW, AND YOU WOULD ALL
  • 00:02:54.160 --> 00:02:56.050
  • BE BLESSED.
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:58.210
  • GENESIS 1:26: "THEN GOD SAID,
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:02:59.120
  • 'LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR IMAGE,
  • 00:02:59.120 --> 00:03:00.250
  • ACCORDING TO OUR LIKENESS...'"
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:02.060
  • HOW MANY KNOW THAT YOU'RE MADE
  • 00:03:02.060 --> 00:03:02.270
  • IN THE IMAGE AND THE
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:03.130
  • LIKENESS OF GOD?
  • 00:03:03.130 --> 00:03:05.080
  • IN FACT, SO MUCH SO THAT
  • 00:03:05.260 --> 00:03:08.260
  • 2 CORINTHIANS 3:18 SAYS:
  • 00:03:08.260 --> 00:03:09.140
  • "BUT WE ALL..." --
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:10.040
  • THAT'S ALL YA'LL --
  • 00:03:10.040 --> 00:03:11.280
  • "...WITH UNVEILED FACE,
  • 00:03:11.280 --> 00:03:13.030
  • BEHOLDING AS IN A MIRROR THE
  • 00:03:13.030 --> 00:03:15.140
  • GLORY OF THE LORD, ARE BEING
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:16.210
  • TRANSFORMED INTO THE SAME IMAGE
  • 00:03:16.210 --> 00:03:18.050
  • FROM GLORY TO GLORY, JUST AS
  • 00:03:18.050 --> 00:03:20.040
  • FROM THE LORD, THE SPIRIT."
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:21.250
  • LET ME READ IT TO YOU AGAIN.
  • 00:03:21.250 --> 00:03:23.060
  • "BUT WE ALL, WITH UNVEILED
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:25.060
  • FACE, BEHOLDING AS IN A MIRROR

  • THE GLORY OF THE LORD, ARE
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:28.060
  • BEING TRANSFORMED INTO THE SAME

  • IMAGE FROM GLORY TO GLORY,
  • 00:03:28.290 --> 00:03:30.150
  • JUST AS FROM THE LORD,

  • THE SPIRIT."
  • 00:03:32.120 --> 00:03:33.060
  • IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN YOU LOOK
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:34.290
  • AT JESUS, IT'S LIKE LOOKIN' IN
  • 00:03:34.290 --> 00:03:35.280
  • A MIRROR.
  • 00:03:35.280 --> 00:03:36.210
  • WHY?
  • 00:03:36.210 --> 00:03:38.040
  • 'CAUSE YOU WERE MADE IN HIS
  • 00:03:38.040 --> 00:03:38.250
  • IMAGE AND IN HIS LIKENESS.
  • 00:03:38.250 --> 00:03:40.030
  • YOU LOOK LIKE YOUR DADDY.
  • 00:03:40.030 --> 00:03:41.140
  • EPHESIANS 5:1 SAYS:
  • 00:03:42.140 --> 00:03:45.140
  • "THEREFORE, BE IMITATORS
  • 00:03:45.140 --> 00:03:46.150
  • OF GOD..."
  • 00:03:46.150 --> 00:03:48.030
  • HOW MANY KNOW WHEN YOU ACT LIKE
  • 00:03:48.030 --> 00:03:48.260
  • GOD, YOU'RE BEING YOU'RE
  • 00:03:48.260 --> 00:03:49.200
  • BEING YOURSELF?
  • 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:50.080
  • I DIDN'T SAY IT; IT'S IN
  • 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:52.010
  • THE BIBLE.
  • 00:03:52.010 --> 00:03:55.010
  • "THEREFORE, BE IMITATORS OF GOD,
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:58.030
  • AS BELOVED CHILDREN..."
  • 00:03:58.030 --> 00:03:58.270
  • SO, I WANNA TALK A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:03:58.270 --> 00:04:01.050
  • ABOUT...NOT SO MUCH THE
  • 00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:03.090
  • IDENTITY OF ROYALTY, 'CAUSE
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:05.200
  • WE'VE TALKED SO MUCH ABOUT
  • 00:04:05.200 --> 00:04:07.080
  • THAT, BUT THE RESPONSIBILITY
  • 00:04:07.080 --> 00:04:08.020
  • OF ROYALTY.
  • 00:04:08.020 --> 00:04:09.170
  • YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL HOW CLOSE
  • 00:04:09.170 --> 00:04:11.080
  • YOU LIVE TO THE PALACE BY HOW
  • 00:04:11.080 --> 00:04:12.290
  • YOU RESPOND TO INJUSTICE.
  • 00:04:12.290 --> 00:04:13.240
  • HERE WE GO.
  • 00:04:14.150 --> 00:04:17.150
  • YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL HOW CLOSE
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:18.230
  • YOU LIVE TO THE PALACE BY HOW
  • 00:04:18.230 --> 00:04:20.270
  • YOU RESPOND TO INJUSTICE.
  • 00:04:20.270 --> 00:04:23.160
  • LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE: IN
  • 00:04:23.160 --> 00:04:24.100
  • EXODUS 2:10, IT'S THE
  • 00:04:24.100 --> 00:04:27.040
  • STORY OF MOSES.
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:29.060
  • AND YOU KNOW THE STORY OF MOSES
  • 00:04:29.060 --> 00:04:30.050
  • -- THAT THE PHARAOH WAS KILLING
  • 00:04:30.050 --> 00:04:32.010
  • ALL THE FIRSTBORN MALES.
  • 00:04:32.010 --> 00:04:33.150
  • AND SO, HIS MOTHER PUT HIM IN A
  • 00:04:33.150 --> 00:04:35.150
  • BASKET AND SENT HIM
  • 00:04:35.150 --> 00:04:36.230
  • DOWN THE RIVER.
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:38.050
  • WHO SHOULD RESCUE HIM, BUT,
  • 00:04:38.050 --> 00:04:39.100
  • COINCIDENTALLY, IT WAS
  • 00:04:39.100 --> 00:04:40.200
  • PHARAOH'S DAUGHTER.
  • 00:04:42.160 --> 00:04:45.160
  • SO, WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:04:45.160 --> 00:04:46.060
  • MOSES WAS RAISED IN
  • 00:04:46.060 --> 00:04:46.270
  • WHAT HAPPENED TO MOSES?
  • 00:04:49.170 --> 00:04:50.050
  • WHY WAS MOSES RAISED IN
  • 00:04:50.050 --> 00:04:50.230
  • PHARAOH'S HOUSE?
  • 00:04:50.230 --> 00:04:51.070
  • I HAD AN ENCOUNTER MANY YEARS
  • 00:04:51.070 --> 00:04:51.280
  • AGO, WHICH I'VE SHARED
  • 00:04:51.280 --> 00:04:52.260
  • MANY TIMES.
  • 00:04:52.260 --> 00:04:53.130
  • AND THE LORD SAID: DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:04:53.130 --> 00:04:54.200
  • WHY THE LORD HAD TO BE RAISED
  • 00:04:54.200 --> 00:04:55.130
  • IN PHARAOH'S HOUSE?
  • 00:04:55.130 --> 00:04:56.190
  • I SAID, "NO, BUT I BET YOU'RE
  • 00:04:56.190 --> 00:04:57.130
  • GONNA TELL ME."
  • 00:04:57.130 --> 00:04:58.030
  • HE SAYS: BECAUSE A MAN WHO'S IN
  • 00:04:58.230 --> 00:05:01.250
  • SLAVERY INTERNALLY CANNOT FREE
  • 00:05:01.250 --> 00:05:02.180
  • PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:05:02.180 --> 00:05:03.110
  • ENSLAVED EXTERNALLY.
  • 00:05:03.110 --> 00:05:04.100
  • SO, IT WAS NECESSARY FOR MOSES
  • 00:05:04.100 --> 00:05:05.010
  • TO BE RAISED AS A PRINCE SO HE
  • 00:05:05.010 --> 00:05:06.130
  • - KRIS: LOOK WHAT IT SAYS.
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:12.150
  • IT SAYS, VERSE 11: "NOW IT CAME
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:13.140
  • ABOUT IN THOSE DAYS, WHEN MOSES
  • 00:05:13.140 --> 00:05:16.010
  • HAD GROWN UP, THAT HE WENT OUT
  • 00:05:16.010 --> 00:05:17.130
  • TO HIS BRETHREN AND LOOKED ON
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:18.200
  • THEIR HARD LABORS; AND HE SAW
  • 00:05:18.200 --> 00:05:19.250
  • AN EGYPTIAN BEATING A HEBREW,
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:20.250
  • ONE OF HIS BRETHREN.
  • 00:05:20.250 --> 00:05:22.270
  • SO, HE LOOKED THIS WAY AND
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:23.280
  • THAT, AND WHEN HE SAW THERE WAS
  • 00:05:23.280 --> 00:05:25.110
  • NO ONE AROUND, HE STRUCK DOWN
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:26.080
  • THE EGYPTIAN AND HID HIM
  • 00:05:26.080 --> 00:05:27.290
  • IN THE SAND."
  • 00:05:27.290 --> 00:05:29.130
  • WHAT I'M GETTING AT IS THIS:
  • 00:05:29.130 --> 00:05:30.070
  • MOSES LIVED IN THE PALACE.
  • 00:05:30.070 --> 00:05:31.250
  • AND WHEN YOU LIVE IN THE
  • 00:05:31.250 --> 00:05:33.090
  • PALACE, WHEN YOU'RE CLOSE TO
  • 00:05:33.090 --> 00:05:34.110
  • THE PALACE, YOU RESPOND TO
  • 00:05:34.110 --> 00:05:35.230
  • INJUSTICE DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:37.280
  • YOU, SOMEHOW, HAVE THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:43.240
  • THAT EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS
  • 00:05:43.240 --> 00:05:44.230
  • IN THE KINGDOM IS SOMEHOW
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:46.040
  • RELATED TO SOMETHING YOU SHOULD
  • 00:05:46.040 --> 00:05:47.220
  • DO ABOUT IT.
  • 00:05:48.130 --> 00:05:51.130
  • AND WHAT I'M GETTING AT IS
  • 00:05:51.130 --> 00:05:52.020
  • THIS: IT'S GREAT TO BE ROYALTY,
  • 00:05:52.020 --> 00:05:53.020
  • IT'S GREAT TO BE NOBILITY, BUT
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:54.030
  • I'D LIKE TO PROPOSE TO YOU THAT
  • 00:05:54.030 --> 00:05:55.000
  • NOBILITY AND ROYALTY HAVE A
  • 00:05:55.000 --> 00:05:56.050
  • RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:05:56.050 --> 00:05:58.290
  • TO WHOM MUCH IS GIVEN...
  • 00:05:58.290 --> 00:05:59.230
  • MUCH IS REQUIRED.
  • 00:05:59.230 --> 00:06:01.200
  • AND SO, WHEN YOU LIVE CLOSE TO
  • 00:06:01.200 --> 00:06:03.150
  • THE PALACE, YOU START TO
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.050
  • PERCEIVE INJUSTICE FROM A
  • 00:06:05.050 --> 00:06:06.100
  • TOTALLY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:07.110
  • BECAUSE NOBILITY DOES NOT
  • 00:06:07.110 --> 00:06:08.160
  • LIKE INJUSTICE.
  • 00:06:08.160 --> 00:06:11.020
  • WHEN MOSES, WHO WAS RAISED IN
  • 00:06:11.020 --> 00:06:12.150
  • THE PALACE, AS YOU KNOW, TO BE
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:13.260
  • A KING LIKE PHARAOH -- WHEN HE
  • 00:06:13.260 --> 00:06:15.080
  • SAW HIS BROTHERS BEING
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:17.080
  • MISTREATED, HOW MANY KNOW
  • 00:06:17.080 --> 00:06:18.130
  • NOBODY TOLD HIM, "GO DO
  • 00:06:18.130 --> 00:06:19.160
  • SOMETHING ABOUT THAT"?
  • 00:06:19.160 --> 00:06:20.200
  • IT WAS JUST BEING RAISED IN A
  • 00:06:20.200 --> 00:06:22.050
  • HOUSE OF A KING, WHO EVERYTHING
  • 00:06:22.050 --> 00:06:24.010
  • IN THE KINGSHIP WAS
  • 00:06:24.010 --> 00:06:25.170
  • HIS RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:06:25.170 --> 00:06:27.060
  • THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT MOSES
  • 00:06:27.060 --> 00:06:28.010
  • BEING RAISED AS A PRINCE --
  • 00:06:28.010 --> 00:06:30.170
  • WHEN HE SAW INJUSTICE, HE FELT
  • 00:06:30.170 --> 00:06:32.020
  • LIKE HE NEEDED TO ACT.
  • 00:06:32.020 --> 00:06:33.110
  • NOW, OBVIOUSLY, WE KNOW THAT HE
  • 00:06:33.110 --> 00:06:35.030
  • DID NOT ACT RIGHTEOUSLY.
  • 00:06:35.030 --> 00:06:36.130
  • BUT THE POINT IS: HE DID ACT.
  • 00:06:36.130 --> 00:06:37.140
  • AND WHEN GOD SAW MOSES ACTING,
  • 00:06:38.020 --> 00:06:41.020
  • WHEN GOD SAW THAT MOSES ACTED
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:43.180
  • ON INJUSTICE, HE SAID:
  • 00:06:43.180 --> 00:06:44.290
  • I GOT MY MAN.
  • 00:06:44.290 --> 00:06:46.220
  • NO, THAT'S KRIS' VERSION OF IT.
  • 00:06:46.260 --> 00:06:49.260
  • YOU'RE LIKE, "WHERE'S THAT IN
  • 00:06:49.260 --> 00:06:50.190
  • THE BIBLE?"
  • 00:06:50.190 --> 00:06:51.040
  • IT'S IN THE UNAUTHORIZED
  • 00:06:51.040 --> 00:06:51.240
  • VERSION.
  • 00:06:51.240 --> 00:06:52.120
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:06:52.120 --> 00:06:55.100
  • WHAT I'M GETTING AT IS THIS:
  • 00:06:55.100 --> 00:06:56.090
  • GOD SAW PEOPLE WHO WERE BEING
  • 00:06:56.090 --> 00:06:58.290
  • DEALT WITH UNJUSTLY, RIGHT?
  • 00:07:01.140 --> 00:07:04.140
  • HE NEEDED A DELIVERER.
  • 00:07:04.140 --> 00:07:05.010
  • HOW MANY KNOW WHEN HE SAW
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:07.030
  • MOSES HATED INJUSTICE, HE KNEW
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:08.240
  • HE HAD SOMETHING TO WORK WITH?
  • 00:07:08.240 --> 00:07:10.120
  • WE SEE THE SAME THING.
  • 00:07:10.120 --> 00:07:12.240
  • WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET CLOSE
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:14.030
  • TO THE PALACE?
  • 00:07:14.030 --> 00:07:15.180
  • THERE'S THE STORY OF ESTHER.
  • 00:07:15.180 --> 00:07:17.240
  • AND I LOVE THE STORY OF ESTHER.
  • 00:07:17.240 --> 00:07:20.050
  • WE SORT OF DOCTOR,
  • 00:07:21.270 --> 00:07:24.270
  • PHOTOSHOP THE STORY OF ESTHER.
  • 00:07:26.100 --> 00:07:29.100
  • I DON'T KNOW-- DO YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:07:29.100 --> 00:07:30.020
  • GOD'S NOT MENTIONED IN THE
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:30.210
  • IT'S AN INTERESTING STORY
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:33.180
  • BECAUSE ESTHER WAS NOT IN
  • 00:07:33.180 --> 00:07:34.240
  • A BEAUTY CONTEST.
  • 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:39.040
  • SO, I DON'T WANNA WRECK THE
  • 00:07:39.040 --> 00:07:39.240
  • WHOLE STORY FOR THE CHILDREN.
  • 00:07:39.240 --> 00:07:42.060
  • AND THE WHOLE THING IS ACTUALLY
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:42.280
  • A LITTLE BIT WEIRD TO ME.
  • 00:07:43.130 --> 00:07:46.130
  • BECAUSE HER UNCLE, MORDECHAI,
  • 00:07:46.130 --> 00:07:47.230
  • IS THE ONE WHO GIVES HER THIS
  • 00:07:47.230 --> 00:07:48.140
  • GREAT, GREAT IDEA THAT SHE
  • 00:07:49.010 --> 00:07:52.010
  • SHOULD GET INVOLVED IN THE
  • 00:07:52.010 --> 00:07:54.040
  • BEAUTY CONTEST IN WHICH THE
  • 00:07:54.040 --> 00:07:55.000
  • KING SLEEPS WITH THE GIRLS THAT
  • 00:07:55.000 --> 00:07:56.210
  • HE LIKES...AND THEN CHOOSES THE
  • 00:07:56.210 --> 00:07:58.030
  • ONES, YES.
  • 00:07:58.030 --> 00:08:00.030
  • GO LOOK AT THE STORY.
  • 00:08:00.030 --> 00:08:00.290
  • YOU CAN REREAD THE STORY.
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:03.150
  • BUT, ACTUALLY, THE KING STAYED
  • 00:08:03.150 --> 00:08:04.240
  • WITH EACH ONE OF THEM ALL NIGHT;
  • 00:08:04.240 --> 00:08:05.160
  • THEY WEREN'T PLAYING CHECKERS.
  • 00:08:05.160 --> 00:08:06.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:08:06.280 --> 00:08:08.270
  • I WOULD JUST SAY THIS,
  • 00:08:08.270 --> 00:08:10.170
  • THAT THE REAL VIRTUOUS
  • 00:08:10.170 --> 00:08:13.010
  • PERSON IN THE BOOK OF
  • 00:08:13.010 --> 00:08:14.070
  • ESTHER IS ACTUALLY VASHTI,
  • 00:08:14.180 --> 00:08:17.180
  • WHO WAS THE FIRST WIFE
  • 00:08:17.180 --> 00:08:19.220
  • OF KING AHASUERUS.
  • 00:08:19.220 --> 00:08:22.140
  • SHE REFUSED TO DANCE FOR THE
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:24.110
  • KING WHEN HE WAS DRUNK, IN
  • 00:08:24.110 --> 00:08:26.270
  • FRONT OF HIS GUESTS.
  • 00:08:26.270 --> 00:08:29.050
  • I WOULD SAY SHE WAS THE
  • 00:08:29.050 --> 00:08:29.280
  • VIRTUOUS ONE --
  • 00:08:29.280 --> 00:08:31.150
  • AT LEAST, IN THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:08:31.150 --> 00:08:33.210
  • BUT, ANYWAY, SORRY TO MESS UP
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:35.180
  • THE STORY OF ESTHER FOR YOU.
  • 00:08:35.180 --> 00:08:36.280
  • I LOVE ESTHER.

  • SHE'S AWESOME.

  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I
  • 00:08:40.190 --> 00:08:43.190
  • LOVE ABOUT THE BIBLE IS

  • I LOVE THAT GOD TELLS US HOW

  • AMAZING DAVID WAS AND I LOVE

  • THE FACT THAT HE INCLUDES THE
  • 00:08:49.070 --> 00:08:51.200
  • STORY OF BATHSHEBA AND URIAH
  • 00:08:51.200 --> 00:08:54.040
  • I JUST LOVE IT.
  • 00:08:54.040 --> 00:08:57.030
  • I JUST LOVE THAT GOD'S LIKE:
  • 00:08:57.030 --> 00:08:58.010
  • THIS IS A MAN AFTER MY HEART.
  • 00:08:58.010 --> 00:08:59.090
  • OH, YEAH, HE HAD A LITTLE
  • 00:08:59.090 --> 00:09:00.050
  • MISTAKE, LIKE HE...COMMITTED

  • WATCHING BY BETHEL.TV.
  • 00:11:57.190 --> 00:11:59.070
  • SO, ESTHER BECOMES QUEEN
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:00.150
  • THROUGH, YOU KNOW, A SERIES OF
  • 00:12:00.150 --> 00:12:01.120
  • INTERVIEWS AND-- AND SPENDING
  • 00:12:01.120 --> 00:12:03.200
  • THE NIGHT WITH THE KING.
  • 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:05.090
  • AND SHE BECOMES QUEEN, WHICH IS
  • 00:12:05.090 --> 00:12:06.220
  • A REALLY GREAT THING.
  • 00:12:06.220 --> 00:12:09.130
  • AND SHE HAS AN UNCLE-- OR,
  • 00:12:09.130 --> 00:12:10.290
  • ACTUALLY, HE'S A COUSIN WHO
  • 00:12:10.290 --> 00:12:11.290
  • ACTUALLY RAISED HER,
  • 00:12:11.290 --> 00:12:12.150
  • AND MORDECHAI AND ESTHER ARE
  • 00:12:14.090 --> 00:12:14.290
  • JEWS AND THEY'RE IN EXILE IN A
  • 00:12:14.290 --> 00:12:16.090
  • FOREIGN LAND, A GENTILE LAND.
  • 00:12:16.090 --> 00:12:17.060
  • AND SO, MORDECHAI IS REALLY-- I
  • 00:12:17.060 --> 00:12:18.260
  • DON'T KNOW HOW TO
  • 00:12:18.260 --> 00:12:21.210
  • DESCRIBE MORDECHAI.
  • 00:12:21.210 --> 00:12:23.080
  • HE'S GOT AN INTERESTING
  • 00:12:23.080 --> 00:12:24.100
  • PERSONALITY.
  • 00:12:24.100 --> 00:12:25.080
  • BASICALLY, HE'S A VERY STRONG
  • 00:12:25.080 --> 00:12:28.040
  • PERSONALITY AND HE-- HE'S A
  • 00:12:28.040 --> 00:12:29.100
  • VERY HONEST MAN.
  • 00:12:29.100 --> 00:12:32.080
  • BUT HE'S ALSO...A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:12:32.080 --> 00:12:33.260
  • LIKE MY GRANDFATHER.
  • 00:12:33.260 --> 00:12:34.230
  • HE'S A LITTLE STUBBORN.
  • 00:12:34.230 --> 00:12:37.090
  • AND THEIR KING HAS A RIGHT-HAND
  • 00:12:37.090 --> 00:12:38.090
  • MAN.
  • 00:12:38.090 --> 00:12:39.130
  • HIS RIGHT-HAND MAN IS
  • 00:12:39.130 --> 00:12:40.000
  • NAMED HAMAN.
  • 00:12:40.000 --> 00:12:41.000
  • AND HAMAN, YOU KNOW, STANDS
  • 00:12:41.000 --> 00:12:43.060
  • OUTSIDE OF THE KING'S COURTS
  • 00:12:43.060 --> 00:12:44.150
  • EVERY DAY.
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:46.140
  • AND, AS PEOPLE WALK BY, THEY'RE
  • 00:12:46.140 --> 00:12:47.260
  • SUPPOSED TO DO HOMAGE,
  • 00:12:47.260 --> 00:12:49.230
  • LIKE, YOU KNOW, BOW
  • 00:12:49.230 --> 00:12:50.290
  • AND MORDECHAI'S NOT HAVIN' NONE
  • 00:12:53.210 --> 00:12:54.130
  • OF THAT.
  • 00:12:54.130 --> 00:12:54.280
  • HE'S LIKE, "I'M NOT BOWIN' DOWN
  • 00:12:54.280 --> 00:12:55.220
  • TO THAT GUY."
  • 00:12:55.220 --> 00:12:57.050
  • AND, EVERY DAY, HAMAN STANDS
  • 00:12:57.050 --> 00:12:58.260
  • OUT IN FRONT OF THE PALACE.
  • 00:12:58.260 --> 00:13:00.110
  • AND, EVERY DAY, MORDECHAI JUST
  • 00:13:00.110 --> 00:13:01.220
  • HAPPENS TO BE ON THE SAME
  • 00:13:01.220 --> 00:13:03.250
  • STREET AND REFUSES TO BOW.
  • 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:06.150
  • IT SEEMS A LITTLE BIT LIKE HE'S
  • 00:13:06.150 --> 00:13:07.200
  • TRYING TO IRRITATE HAMAN OR
  • 00:13:07.200 --> 00:13:08.290
  • THAT HAMAN'S TRYING TO
  • 00:13:08.290 --> 00:13:09.250
  • IRRITATE HIM.
  • 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:11.090
  • BUT, AS THE DAYS GO ON, HE
  • 00:13:11.090 --> 00:13:13.020
  • BEGINS TO HATE MORDECHAI.
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:14.260
  • AND HE FINDS OUT THAT MORDECHAI
  • 00:13:14.260 --> 00:13:16.140
  • IS ACTUALLY A JEW, NOT A
  • 00:13:16.140 --> 00:13:18.100
  • GENTILE, THAT HE'S A JEW.
  • 00:13:18.100 --> 00:13:19.130
  • AND SO, LITTLE BY LITTLE, HE
  • 00:13:19.130 --> 00:13:21.160
  • FINDS OUT THAT HE WON'T BOW
  • 00:13:21.160 --> 00:13:23.100
  • BECAUSE MORDECHAI HAS A
  • 00:13:23.100 --> 00:13:25.060
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND HE'S
  • 00:13:25.060 --> 00:13:26.160
  • NOT GONNA WORSHIP ANYBODY
  • 00:13:26.160 --> 00:13:27.050
  • BUT GOD.
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:27.220
  • AND HE KINDA FIGURES OUT THAT
  • 00:13:27.220 --> 00:13:28.250
  • ALL THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE A
  • 00:13:28.250 --> 00:13:30.060
  • GOD, AND, THEREFORE, ARE NOT
  • 00:13:30.060 --> 00:13:31.020
  • GONNA WORSHIP AHASUERUS,
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:31.260
  • THE KING.
  • 00:13:31.260 --> 00:13:34.150
  • AND, THIS STORY KINDA GOES ON
  • 00:13:34.150 --> 00:13:36.110
  • AND IT'S REALLY A GREAT STORY.
  • 00:13:36.110 --> 00:13:37.190
  • IF YOU'VE NEVER READ THE BOOK
  • 00:13:37.190 --> 00:13:38.260
  • OF ESTHER, IT ACTUALLY IS A
  • 00:13:38.260 --> 00:13:39.220
  • REALLY, REALLY GREAT STORY.
  • 00:13:39.220 --> 00:13:40.230
  • AND SO, HE GETS
  • 00:13:40.230 --> 00:13:43.120
  • MADDER AND MADDER.
  • 00:13:43.120 --> 00:13:44.040
  • AND, IN THE MEANTIME, WHILE
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:45.090
  • HE'S GETTING ANGRIER AND
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:47.070
  • ANGRIER, THE KING--
  • 00:13:47.070 --> 00:13:48.290
  • THERE'S A PLOT TO
  • 00:13:48.290 --> 00:13:50.090
  • KILL THE KING.
  • 00:13:50.090 --> 00:13:51.160
  • MORDECHAI HEARS ABOUT IT.
  • 00:13:51.160 --> 00:13:53.290
  • AND THROUGH A STORY,
  • 00:13:53.290 --> 00:13:55.290
  • THIS IS KIND OF LIKE THE
  • 00:13:59.180 --> 00:14:00.080
  • SUBPLOT THAT'S HAPPENING.
  • 00:14:00.080 --> 00:14:02.250
  • WHILE MORDECHAI AND HAMAN ARE
  • 00:14:02.250 --> 00:14:03.260
  • HAVING THIS CONFLICT,
  • 00:14:03.260 --> 00:14:06.090
  • MORDECHAI ACTUALLY IS LOYAL
  • 00:14:06.090 --> 00:14:08.080
  • TO THE KING AND HE ACTUALLY
  • 00:14:08.080 --> 00:14:10.150
  • SAVES THE KING'S LIFE.
  • 00:14:10.150 --> 00:14:12.010
  • SO, SOME THINGS HAPPEN.
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:13.070
  • AND MORDECHAI -- HE'S GOT A
  • 00:14:13.070 --> 00:14:14.140
  • BUNCH OF FRIENDS THAT ACTUALLY
  • 00:14:14.140 --> 00:14:16.120
  • HATE JEWS, TOO.
  • 00:14:16.120 --> 00:14:18.120
  • SO, THEY KIND OF--
  • 00:14:18.120 --> 00:14:19.010
  • MISERY LOVES COMPANY,
  • 00:14:19.010 --> 00:14:19.240
  • THEY'RE ALL HANGIN'
  • 00:14:19.240 --> 00:14:21.150
  • OUT TOGETHER.
  • 00:14:21.150 --> 00:14:22.090
  • AND MORDECHAI GOES HOME EVERY
  • 00:14:22.090 --> 00:14:23.100
  • DAY AND HE'S JUST GETTIN' MORE
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:24.190
  • AND MORE DEPRESSED BECAUSE--
  • 00:14:24.190 --> 00:14:25.200
  • BECAUSE-- UH--
  • 00:14:25.200 --> 00:14:27.260
  • I'M SORRY.
  • 00:14:27.260 --> 00:14:28.110
  • HAMAN IS GETTIN' MORE AND MORE
  • 00:14:28.110 --> 00:14:29.180
  • DEPRESSED BECAUSE MORDECHAI
  • 00:14:29.180 --> 00:14:30.210
  • WON'T BOW TO HIM AND-- AND IT'S
  • 00:14:30.210 --> 00:14:32.070
  • KIND OF CREATING THIS WHOLE
  • 00:14:32.070 --> 00:14:33.070
  • KIND OF WAVE OF PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:35.070
  • WON'T BOW TO MORDECHAI.
  • 00:14:35.070 --> 00:14:38.010
  • AND SO, HE'S HANGING AROUND
  • 00:14:38.010 --> 00:14:38.210
  • WITH HIS FRIENDS AND HE'S LIKE
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:39.120
  • SCHEMING, LIKE: "AGH, I GOTTA
  • 00:14:39.120 --> 00:14:40.120
  • KILL THIS GUY!

  • WHAT AM I GONNA DO WITH
  • 00:14:41.220 --> 00:14:42.100
  • THIS GUY?"
  • 00:14:42.100 --> 00:14:44.170
  • AND, SO, ONE OF HIS FRIENDS
  • 00:14:44.170 --> 00:14:46.020
  • SAYS, "WHY DON'T YOU JUST SET
  • 00:14:46.020 --> 00:14:47.070
  • SOME GALLOWS UP AND JUST...GET
  • 00:14:47.070 --> 00:14:48.210
  • A DECREE FROM THE KING TO HANG
  • 00:14:48.210 --> 00:14:50.110
  • HAMAN ON THE GALLOWS?"
  • 00:14:50.240 --> 00:14:53.240
  • SO, LIKE, HAMAN'S LIKE, "THAT'S
  • 00:14:53.240 --> 00:14:54.160
  • A GREAT IDEA..."
  • 00:14:54.160 --> 00:14:55.110
  • SO, HE SETS UP SOME GALLOWS --
  • 00:14:56.070 --> 00:14:59.070
  • IT'S LIKE A NOOSE,
  • 00:14:59.070 --> 00:14:59.260
  • YOU KNOW, WHERE YOU HANG PEOPLE?
  • 00:14:59.260 --> 00:15:01.210
  • AND, IN THE MEANTIME, THE KING
  • 00:15:01.210 --> 00:15:02.220
  • HAS A DREAM.
  • 00:15:02.220 --> 00:15:04.070
  • AND-- NO, I'M SORRY.
  • 00:15:04.070 --> 00:15:06.290
  • THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:15:06.290 --> 00:15:08.190
  • IN THE MEANTIME, THE KING CAN'T
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:09.150
  • SLEEP ONE NIGHT.
  • 00:15:09.150 --> 00:15:10.060
  • THAT'S THE OPPOSITE OF A DREAM.
  • 00:15:10.060 --> 00:15:11.120
  • HE HAS INSOMNIA.
  • 00:15:11.120 --> 00:15:12.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:15:12.060 --> 00:15:14.220
  • SORRY.
  • 00:15:14.220 --> 00:15:15.040
  • I ALWAYS GET THAT MIXED UP WITH
  • 00:15:15.040 --> 00:15:15.260
  • THE BABYLONIAN KING OF DANIEL.
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:17.150
  • IN THE MEANTIME, THE KING CAN'T
  • 00:15:17.150 --> 00:15:18.210
  • SLEEP ONE NIGHT.
  • 00:15:18.210 --> 00:15:20.090
  • AND HE GOES OUT ON HIS, YOU
  • 00:15:20.090 --> 00:15:21.260
  • KNOW-- HE'S LOOKIN' OUT OVER
  • 00:15:21.260 --> 00:15:22.280
  • HIS KINGDOM, THERE.
  • 00:15:22.280 --> 00:15:25.160
  • AND HE STARTS THINKIN' ABOUT
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:26.260
  • THIS GUY MORDECHAI THAT SAVED
  • 00:15:26.260 --> 00:15:28.010
  • HIS LIFE.
  • 00:15:28.010 --> 00:15:28.230
  • AND HE'S THINKING: "YOU KNOW, I
  • 00:15:28.230 --> 00:15:29.290
  • DON'T THINK I'VE DONE ANYTHING
  • 00:15:29.290 --> 00:15:31.030
  • FOR THIS GUY!
  • 00:15:31.030 --> 00:15:31.170
  • LIKE, DID I...DID I GIVE HIM A
  • 00:15:31.170 --> 00:15:33.040
  • REWARD OR ANYTHING?

  • DID WE DO ANYTHING FOR
  • 00:15:34.100 --> 00:15:34.280
  • THIS GUY?"
  • 00:15:34.280 --> 00:15:35.280
  • SO, HE CALLS HAMAN IN AND HE
  • 00:15:35.280 --> 00:15:37.190
  • GOES: "HAMAN, YOU KNOW, WHAT
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:39.090
  • SHOULD THE KING DO FOR SOMEBODY

  • AND HE GOES, "OH, I KNOW WHAT

  • YOU SHOULD DO."
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:15:57.230
  • HAMAN'S THINKIN' IT'S HIM.
  • 00:15:57.230 --> 00:15:58.180
  • "I THINK YOU SHOULD PUT YOUR
  • 00:15:58.180 --> 00:16:00.120
  • ROYAL ROBE ON HIM, YOU SHOULD
  • 00:16:00.120 --> 00:16:01.240
  • PUT HIM ON THE ROYAL DONKEY,
  • 00:16:01.240 --> 00:16:04.090
  • YOU SHOULD MARCH HIM DOWN THE
  • 00:16:04.090 --> 00:16:05.280
  • STREET, AND YOU SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:16:05.280 --> 00:16:07.010
  • PEOPLE PAY HOMAGE TO HIM."
  • 00:16:07.010 --> 00:16:08.260
  • AND THE KING GOES: "THAT IS A
  • 00:16:08.260 --> 00:16:10.170
  • GREAT IDEA.
  • 00:16:10.170 --> 00:16:12.150
  • TAKE MY ROBE AND PUT IT
  • 00:16:12.150 --> 00:16:14.000
  • OVER MORDECHAI...
  • 00:16:14.000 --> 00:16:16.110
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:16:16.110 --> 00:16:18.040
  • ...AND MARCH HIM THROUGH

  • THE STREETS."
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:21.000
  • AND HAMAN IS LIKE...UGH!
  • 00:16:21.000 --> 00:16:22.290
  • HE'S JUST LIKE-- HE JUST WANTS
  • 00:16:22.290 --> 00:16:24.180
  • TO KILL MORDECHAI!
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:26.190
  • SO, YOU KNOW, HERE HE IS --
  • 00:16:26.190 --> 00:16:28.160
  • HE'S THE GUY THAT WANTS TO
  • 00:16:28.160 --> 00:16:30.150
  • KILL MORDECHAI.
  • 00:16:30.150 --> 00:16:32.050
  • HE'S GOT SOME, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:16:32.050 --> 00:16:33.030
  • GALLOWS SET UP TO
  • 00:16:33.030 --> 00:16:34.030
  • KILL MORDECHAI.
  • 00:16:34.030 --> 00:16:34.240
  • AND, NOW, HE'S THE GUY THAT'S
  • 00:16:34.240 --> 00:16:36.060
  • GOT THE KING'S DONKEY, AND HE'S
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:37.260
  • PUT THE ROYAL ROBE ON
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:39.100
  • MORDECHAI, AND HE'S MARCHIN'
  • 00:16:39.100 --> 00:16:40.100
  • HIM THROUGH THE STREET, AND
  • 00:16:40.100 --> 00:16:41.100
  • PEOPLE ARE GIVIN' HOMAGE
  • 00:16:41.100 --> 00:16:42.030
  • TO MORDECHAI.
  • 00:16:42.030 --> 00:16:42.280
  • AND IT'S JUST LIKE-- HE'S JUST,
  • 00:16:42.280 --> 00:16:43.290
  • LIKE, BESIDE HIMSELF.
  • 00:16:43.290 --> 00:16:45.190
  • HE JUST CAN'T EVEN STAND

  • HIMSELF!
  • 00:16:49.010 --> 00:16:52.010
  • SO, FINALLY, HE'S JUST SCHEMING
  • 00:16:52.010 --> 00:16:53.000
  • AND THINKING AND HE'S GOT THESE
  • 00:16:53.000 --> 00:16:54.190
  • EVIL FRIENDS THAT ARE SCHEMING
  • 00:16:54.190 --> 00:16:56.100
  • WITH HIM.
  • 00:16:56.100 --> 00:16:56.250
  • AND, ONE DAY, HE DECIDES-- HE
  • 00:16:56.250 --> 00:16:59.050
  • IN VERSE-- CHAPTER 3 OF ESTHER,
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:03.210
  • VERSE 8, STARTS THERE:
  • 00:17:03.210 --> 00:17:04.130
  • "THEN HAMAN SAID TO KING
  • 00:17:04.130 --> 00:17:05.250
  • AHASUERUS, 'THERE IS A CERTAIN
  • 00:17:05.250 --> 00:17:07.190
  • PEOPLE SCATTERED AND DISPERSED
  • 00:17:07.190 --> 00:17:09.020
  • AMONG THE PEOPLES IN ALL THE
  • 00:17:09.020 --> 00:17:09.220
  • PROVINCES OF YOUR KINGDOM;
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:12.000
  • THEIR LAWS ARE DIFFERENT FROM
  • 00:17:12.000 --> 00:17:12.210
  • OURS, FROM ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:17:12.210 --> 00:17:14.030
  • AND THEY DO NOT OBSERVE THE
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:14.280
  • KING'S LAWS,
  • 00:17:14.280 --> 00:17:16.000
  • SO IT IS NOT IN THE
  • 00:17:16.000 --> 00:17:18.100
  • KING'S INTEREST TO
  • 00:17:18.100 --> 00:17:19.080
  • LET THEM REMAIN.
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:21.030
  • IF IT IS PLEASING TO THE KING,
  • 00:17:21.030 --> 00:17:23.220
  • LET ME DECREE THAT THEY BE
  • 00:17:23.220 --> 00:17:25.290
  • DESTROYED, AND I WILL PAY TEN
  • 00:17:25.290 --> 00:17:27.130
  • THOUSAND TALENTS OF SILVER INTO
  • 00:17:27.130 --> 00:17:28.170
  • THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO CARRY ON
  • 00:17:28.170 --> 00:17:30.130
  • THE KING'S BUSINESS TO PUT
  • 00:17:30.130 --> 00:17:31.120
  • INTO THE KING'S TREASURIES.'
  • 00:17:31.120 --> 00:17:32.250
  • THEN THE KING TOOK HIS SIGNET
  • 00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:34.040
  • RING FROM HIS HAND AND GAVE IT
  • 00:17:34.040 --> 00:17:36.240
  • TO HAMAN...THE ENEMY
  • 00:17:36.240 --> 00:17:38.250
  • OF THE JEWS.
  • 00:17:38.250 --> 00:17:40.180
  • THE KING SAID TO HAMAN, 'THE
  • 00:17:40.180 --> 00:17:42.170
  • SILVER IS YOURS, AND THE PEOPLE
  • 00:17:42.170 --> 00:17:43.240
  • ALSO, TO DO WITH THEM

  • AS YOU PLEASE.'"
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:46.270
  • NOW, HE HAS NO IDEA-- THE KING
  • 00:17:46.270 --> 00:17:48.130
  • HAS NO IDEA THAT MORDECHAI
  • 00:17:48.130 --> 00:17:49.230
  • IS A JEW.
  • 00:17:49.230 --> 00:17:52.210
  • AND, HAMAN DOESN'T KNOW THAT
  • 00:17:52.210 --> 00:17:54.060
  • ESTHER'S A JEW.
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:56.210
  • SO, HE'S GOING TO KILL ALL THE
  • 00:17:56.210 --> 00:17:57.280
  • JEWS AND THE KING JUST DECREED
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:17:59.270
  • THAT THEY KILL ALL THE JEWS IN
  • 00:17:59.270 --> 00:18:02.080
  • ALL OF THE KING'S KINGDOM.
  • 00:18:02.080 --> 00:18:05.050
  • IT SAYS THIS IN CHAPTER 4:
  • 00:18:05.100 --> 00:18:08.100
  • "WHEN MORDECAI LEARNED ALL THAT
  • 00:18:08.100 --> 00:18:09.020
  • HAD BEEN DONE, HE TORE HIS
  • 00:18:09.080 --> 00:18:12.080
  • CLOTHES, PUT ON SACKCLOTH AND
  • 00:18:12.080 --> 00:18:13.210
  • ASHES, AND WENT OUT INTO THE
  • 00:18:13.210 --> 00:18:15.290
  • MIDST OF THE CITY AND WAILED
  • 00:18:15.290 --> 00:18:16.250
  • LOUDLY AND BITTERLY."
  • 00:18:16.250 --> 00:18:18.120
  • VERSE 2: "HE WENT AS FAR AS THE
  • 00:18:18.120 --> 00:18:20.000
  • KING'S GATE, FOR NO ONE WAS TO
  • 00:18:20.000 --> 00:18:22.260
  • ENTER THE KING'S GATE CLOTHED
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:25.050
  • IN SACKCLOTH.
  • 00:18:25.050 --> 00:18:27.000
  • IN EACH AND EVERY PROVINCE
  • 00:18:28.240 --> 00:18:31.240
  • WHERE THE COMMAND AND DECREE OF
  • 00:18:31.240 --> 00:18:33.180
  • THE KING CAME, THERE WAS GREAT
  • 00:18:33.180 --> 00:18:35.040
  • MOURNING AMONG THE JEWS, WITH
  • 00:18:35.040 --> 00:18:36.080
  • FASTING, WEEPING AND WAILING;
  • 00:18:36.090 --> 00:18:39.090
  • AND MANY LAY IN SACKCLOTH
  • 00:18:39.090 --> 00:18:41.210
  • AND ASHES."
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:43.160
  • SO, YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT THIS
  • 00:18:43.160 --> 00:18:44.180
  • THE KING'S MADE A DECREE, IT'S
  • 00:18:47.080 --> 00:18:47.290
  • LIKE A MONTH AWAY, ALL THE JEWS
  • 00:18:47.290 --> 00:18:49.010
  • ARE-- YOU KNOW, THERE'S NO 7R
  • 00:18:50.260 --> 00:18:53.260
  • NEWS, THERE'S NO CNN.
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:54.290
  • I MEAN, PEOPLE SLOWLY ARE
  • 00:18:54.290 --> 00:18:56.120
  • HEARING ABOUT THIS DECREE.
  • 00:18:56.120 --> 00:18:57.270
  • AND, AS IT'S GOING FROM
  • 00:18:57.270 --> 00:18:59.090
  • PROVINCE TO PROVINCE, THE
  • 00:18:59.090 --> 00:19:00.110
  • PEOPLE ARE WEEPING AND WAILING.
  • 00:19:00.110 --> 00:19:02.030
  • MORDECHAI TEARS HIS CLOTHES.
  • 00:19:02.030 --> 00:19:04.230
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT ALL THE
  • 00:19:04.230 --> 00:19:05.230
  • PROPHETS ALWAYS RIP THEIR
  • 00:19:05.230 --> 00:19:06.120
  • CLOTHES OFF WHENEVER
  • 00:19:06.120 --> 00:19:07.040
  • GOD'S ON 'EM.
  • 00:19:07.040 --> 00:19:08.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:08.270 --> 00:19:09.100
  • I'M GLAD I'M NOT A OLD
  • 00:19:09.100 --> 00:19:10.070
  • TESTAMENT PROPHET 'CAUSE...
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:11.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:11.130 --> 00:19:12.230
  • ...IT'S EASIER TO TURN THE LIGHT
  • 00:19:12.230 --> 00:19:13.230
  • OFF THAN TO LOSE WEIGHT.
  • 00:19:13.230 --> 00:19:15.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:18.140 --> 00:19:21.140
  • SO, MORDECHAI IS--
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:22.090
  • HE'S WRECKED.
  • 00:19:22.090 --> 00:19:25.040
  • YOU CAN IMAGINE --
  • 00:19:25.040 --> 00:19:25.260
  • HE'S WRECKED.
  • 00:19:27.040 --> 00:19:30.040
  • HE'S-- YOU KNOW, HE'S TOTALLY,
  • 00:19:30.040 --> 00:19:31.060
  • YOU KNOW, STRESSED OUT,
  • 00:19:31.060 --> 00:19:33.070
  • MOURNING, WAILING.
  • 00:19:33.070 --> 00:19:33.220
  • YOU KNOW, THE WORD'S BEGINNING
  • 00:19:33.220 --> 00:19:34.200
  • TO GET OUT.
  • 00:19:34.200 --> 00:19:35.260
  • YOU CAN IMAGINE THE PEOPLE ALL
  • 00:19:35.260 --> 00:19:37.090
  • OVER THE KING'S NATION ARE
  • 00:19:37.090 --> 00:19:38.190
  • BEGINNING TO WEEP AND WAIL.
  • 00:19:38.190 --> 00:19:41.190
  • AND IT SAYS MANY HAD PUT ON
  • 00:19:41.190 --> 00:19:42.090
  • SACKCLOTH AND ASHES, AND
  • 00:19:42.090 --> 00:19:44.150
  • THEY'RE JUST LAYING IN THE
  • 00:19:44.150 --> 00:19:46.020
  • VERSE 4'S INTERESTING --
  • 00:19:49.150 --> 00:19:50.100
  • CHAPTER 4, VERSE 4.
  • 00:19:50.100 --> 00:19:52.040
  • "WHEN ESTHER'S MAIDENS AND HER

  • THE QUEEN WRITHED IN
  • 00:19:56.280 --> 00:19:58.140
  • GREAT ANGUISH.
  • 00:19:58.140 --> 00:19:59.010
  • AND SHE SENT GARMENTS TO CLOTHE
  • 00:19:59.010 --> 00:20:00.120
  • MORDECHAI THAT HE MIGHT REMOVE
  • 00:20:00.120 --> 00:20:01.090
  • HIS SACKCLOTH FROM HIM, BUT HE
  • 00:20:02.110 --> 00:20:05.110
  • DID NOT ACCEPT THEM."
  • 00:20:05.110 --> 00:20:06.170
  • IT'S A VERY INTERESTING-- HER--
  • 00:20:06.170 --> 00:20:07.220
  • YOU KNOW, YOU CAN IMAGINE,
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:09.140
  • ESTHER, UNLIKE MOSES, WAS NOT
  • 00:20:09.140 --> 00:20:11.030
  • SHE'S, IF YOU WILL, A SLAVE
  • 00:20:15.250 --> 00:20:17.000
  • GIRL IN EXILE WHO HAPPENS TO--
  • 00:20:17.010 --> 00:20:20.010
  • I UNDERSTAND IT WASN'T LUCK,
  • 00:20:20.010 --> 00:20:22.160
  • BUT, FROM THE OUTSIDE, GETS
  • 00:20:22.160 --> 00:20:24.090
  • LUCKY AND WINS...THE QUEENSHIP.
  • 00:20:24.130 --> 00:20:27.130
  • SHE HAS NO TRAINING, EXCEPT FOR
  • 00:20:27.130 --> 00:20:28.180
  • BEAUTY TRAINING.
  • 00:20:28.180 --> 00:20:31.050
  • SHE HAS NO TRAINING ON HOW TO
  • 00:20:31.050 --> 00:20:32.030
  • ROLL WITH THE KING.
  • 00:20:32.030 --> 00:20:33.030
  • SHE DIDN'T GROW UP IN A PALACE.
  • 00:20:33.030 --> 00:20:34.170
  • SHE DIDN'T GROW UP IN A
  • 00:20:34.170 --> 00:20:35.080
  • ROYAL FAMILY.
  • 00:20:35.080 --> 00:20:37.070
  • AND SO, YOU CAN IMAGINE --
  • 00:20:37.070 --> 00:20:37.260
  • SHE'S-- IN MY EXAMPLE, SHE
  • 00:20:37.260 --> 00:20:39.240
  • DIDN'T GROW UP CLOSE TO
  • 00:20:39.240 --> 00:20:41.240
  • THE PALACE.
  • 00:20:41.240 --> 00:20:43.070
  • SO, SHE SEES MORDECHAI, IF YOU
  • 00:20:43.070 --> 00:20:45.190
  • WILL, ACTING-- YOU KNOW, HE'S
  • 00:20:45.190 --> 00:20:48.010
  • NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT.
  • 00:20:48.010 --> 00:20:50.080
  • HE'S RIPPED HIS CLOTHES.
  • 00:20:50.080 --> 00:20:51.260
  • EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS HER
  • 00:20:51.260 --> 00:20:52.270
  • UNCLE MORDECHAI, A MAN
  • 00:20:52.270 --> 00:20:55.120
  • OF NOBILITY.
  • 00:20:55.120 --> 00:20:57.110
  • AND, YOU KNOW, HE COMES CLOSE
  • 00:20:57.110 --> 00:20:58.110
  • TO THE PALACE, AND HIS CLOTHES
  • 00:20:58.110 --> 00:20:59.230
  • ARE RIPPED AND HE'S GOT ASHES
  • 00:20:59.230 --> 00:21:00.280
  • ON HIS HEAD, AND HE'S WEEPING
  • 00:21:00.280 --> 00:21:02.000
  • AND HE'S MOURNING.
  • 00:21:02.000 --> 00:21:03.060
  • AND SHE'S LIKE-- SHE'S TRYING
  • 00:21:03.060 --> 00:21:04.180
  • TO GET HIM TO ACT NOBLY.
  • 00:21:04.180 --> 00:21:05.240
  • SHE'S TRYING TO GET HIM -- I'M
  • 00:21:06.130 --> 00:21:09.130
  • GOING SOMEWHERE -- SHE'S TRYING
  • 00:21:09.130 --> 00:21:11.010
  • TO GET HIM TO BE
  • 00:21:11.010 --> 00:21:13.110
  • POLITICALLY CORRECT.
  • 00:21:13.110 --> 00:21:16.090
  • SHE'S LIKE: CALM DOWN, IT'S
  • 00:21:16.090 --> 00:21:17.080
  • ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:21:17.080 --> 00:21:18.110
  • AND, YOU CAN TELL BY HIS
  • 00:21:21.240 --> 00:21:22.230
  • RESPONSE THAT SHE'S SIPPING
  • 00:21:22.230 --> 00:21:24.050
  • SUDS IN THE PALACE, AND SHE
  • 00:21:24.050 --> 00:21:26.180
  • THINKS THAT THE PALACE AND
  • 00:21:26.220 --> 00:21:29.220
  • ROYALTY ARE GONNA SEPARATE HER
  • 00:21:29.220 --> 00:21:31.220
  • FROM THE PROBLEMS OF
  • 00:21:31.220 --> 00:21:32.270
  • HER PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:37.010
  • AND SHE'S TRYING TO GET
