by Tim Hegg
In this article, Tim Hegg looks at a teaching by D. Thomas Lancaster (FFOZ) in which he finds hidden meaning within Esther. Lancaster suggests that finding the hidden meaning in Esther 9:7-9 prophesied the execution of 10 Nazi criminals. Hegg looks at the method used, and the claims made and challenges this view. In conclusion, Hegg suggests this kind of Bible study is an attempt to find the “biblical wow factor.” Hegg compares various texts of the Esther passage, showing the error of searching out hidden meaning.
