The holiday of Purim is undoubtedly a phenomenon. Like in the Holiday of Passover, one can see in it the miracle of the deliverance of Jews from an inevitable extermination. The motif of a danger of extermination and a miraculous deliverance is present in many biblical texts. It seems to be the leitmotif of the whole history of salvation. Besides some decisive and spectacular events, it is full of “miracles” of every day, which happen quietly and unnoticed. All these make up the incomprehensible miracle of God’s control over the history of an individual, a people and the whole world. For God controls the fate of each of them in such a way that their lots cross and intertwine, leading some to extermination and others to deliverance. In the case of Purim, both ways are commemorated as God’s care of his people.
