These Gemara teachings focus on the story of Purim. They feature an in-depth study of the Talmudic expositions of our Sages on the verses of the biblical Scroll of Esther.

The Fifty-Fifth Episode of the study of Masechet Megillah, opens Page 17 a, and concludes the first chapter of this holiday-focused tractate.

“TEACHING PEOPLES’ HISTORY,” features a Purim-inspired analysis of pious past precedents that provide a series of profound lessons on the power and overriding importance of Torah Teaching and Learning!

In the previous Episodes, we’ve already explored the telling descriptions of Mordechai HaYehudi’s popularity and acceptance as overwhelming but not absolute. This segued into a discovery of the overriding virtue of Torah.

In this final segment of Perek Megillah n’Kra’as, we carefully calculation and reconcile the detailed timelines in Jacob’s journey. As a discrepancy is revealed, a historic message shines forth and drives the point home with devastating accuracy!

This will complete the thesis on what pursuit and accomplishment is Jewishly considered to be the most virtuous and important of all!

Episode 55 of this continuing Talmud study-series of Masechet Megillah, ends our series on the second half of the first chapter.
