Hey everyone, this is a great movie Christina found out about, a very authentic and very pro-Jewish movie made about the life of Queen Esther. It starts Friday, Oct. 13th in the box office and I can't wait to see it tomorrow!!!
Be sure and watch the trailer and interview with Michael Medved on their site. http://www.8x.com/onenight/
We did get to see this movie late last night after going to one city where it was sold out, we headed south to Lodi, and were able to see it, and I'm back to report that One Night with the King is phenomenal!! It follows the Biblical story of Esther very closely and the acting by 25 year old Tiffany Dupont is wonderful, plus it has legends like Omar Sharif and Peter O'Toole.
It powerfully shows how the deep faith and early training in the Scriptures by her parents and cousin Mordecai helps prepare one Jewish orphan girl for the biggest test of her life, to risk her own life in order to save the lives of her people . It also shows how God is Sovereign over kings and kingdoms and everything else that happens and and how just as God told Jeremiah, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..." Jeremiah 1:5...God has a destiny for each one of us to fulfill if we have the courage to do it!
Favorite verse from the book of Esther: "Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish. (4:16)
