The Story of Esther. Ap The story of Queen Esther is one of the Bible’s most dramatic – a new young queen, an evil adviser to the king, a king prone to fits of rage, and a big dilemma for Esther! The basic plot summary is this: King Artaxerxes gets very angry as his queen, Vashti, and banishes her.

    The Book of Esther begins with the Queen of King Ahasuerus—Vashti—snubbing the king's request to meet with her. Naturally, being a rather unstable fellow, Ahasuerus fires-slash-divorces her. Now he needs to pick a new queen and eventually manages to select Esther—a comely, young (secretly Jewish) woman who is a part of his harem. Hosts Aunt Carole, Aunt Nikki and Uncle Jon bring their warmth and love to children around the world as they narrate exciting, dramatized stories straight from the pages of the Bible, the annals of history and the experiences of life.
