Messenger Posted September 3, 2020 Share Posted September 3, 2020 7 hours ago, EnigmaticWorld said: I don't know much about King Cyrus or Queen Esther, probably like most folks, although I feel like I should know more about them, especially if the leader of the most powerful nation in the Western world is on a coin with one of them. "Cyrus the Great figures in the Hebrew Bible as the patron and deliverer of the Jews. He is mentioned 23 times by name and alluded to several times more. According to the Bible, Cyrus the Great, king of Persia, was the monarch under whom the Babylonian captivity ended." "Esther is described in all versions of the Book of Esther as the Jewish queen of a Persian king Ahasuerus. In the narrative, Ahasuerus seeks a new wife after his queen, Vashti, refuses to obey him, and Esther is chosen for her beauty." I already knew the basics that I have quoted from Wiki, but there might be more significance to those biblical/historical figures than I'm aware of. I also remember the media saying that the Trump coin is likely to rile Iranians, who uniformly respect King Cyrus as an ancient Persian hero. So typical. Interesting, thanks. In passing I have heard Persian people mention a genocide or holocaust like event such as the Jewish people in Germany experienced. This NWO faction seem to enjoy wiping out indigenous people in every country and land. I will have to look into the gold coin and Cyrus and Esther some more when I get a chance.
