Esther 2:21-23 In those days, while Mordecai was sitting at the king’s gate, Bigthan and Teresh, two of the king’s eunuchs, who guarded the threshold, became angry and conspired to assassinate King Ahasuerus. But the matter came to the knowledge of Mordecai, and he told it to Queen Esther, and Esther told the king in the name of Mordecai. When the affair was investigated and found to be so, both the men were hanged on the gallows. It was recorded in the book of the annals in the presence of the king.
In the middle of the story about Queen Esther, the focus moves for a brief second to a scene from outside the walls of the palace. There we find her uncle who discovers a conspiracy against the king. Somehow this story seems out of place and insignificant to what we are reading. Mordecai tells what happened to Esther and the two men are hanged. We are reminded that it’s written in the king’s annals, as all issues like this commonly are.
We think the case is closed.
