Can Jesus be found in the Book of Esther?

“It has been observed by many that no Divine Name or Title is found

in the Book of Esther. This is most remarkable, since, in this

short book of only 167 verses, the Median King is mentioned 192 times,

his kingdom is referred to 26 times, and his name “Ahasuerus” is given 29 times.

Jehovah had declared (Deuteronomy 31:16-18) that if His People

forsook Him, He would hide His face from them.

Though the book reveals Him as overruling all, His Name is hidden.

It is there for His People to see, not for His enemies to see or hear.”

E.W. Bullinger

The Companion Bible


According to E.W. Bullinger, the tetragrammaton YHVH is encrypted

within the Book of Esther four times, while EHYEH (“I AM”) is encrypted once.

(Click on “The Companion Bible” link above for details)

The “Median King” is mentioned 192 times.

The number 192 begins from position 975 in its first occurrence of pi:

The numeric string 192 appears at the 975th decimal digit of Pi.
              ^ <-- 975th digit

The Name “Jesus” is found 975 times in 935 verses of the Bible (KJV)

This Jesus, stood before the congregation at the onset of His ministry

and read from the book of Isaiah at the appointed time, saying:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me

to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,

to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind,

to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

Then He closed the book and said…

“This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears.”

In the Strong’s Concordance, “closed” (πτυσσω) is Greek # 4428,

while “the book” (βιβλιον) is # 975.

Hebrew # 4428 is מלך (melek), meaning “king”,

while the Greek # 935 is βασιλευς (basileus), also meaning “king”.

“This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears”

οτι σημερον πεπληρωται η γραφη αυτη εν τοις ωσιν υμων

has a numeric value of 6581

The 852nd composite number is 6581

Hebrew # 852 is את (ath) meaning “signs / miraculous signs”,

while Greek # 852 is τριακοντα (triakonta) meaning “thirty”.

Jesus was “about thirty” when He began His ministry,

which just so happened to consist of many miraculous signs.

His ministry ended after 6 hours on the Cross.

6 in binary = 110

From the beginning of His ministry to the end of it,

we see these most “miraculous signs” in the numbers.

The word “ath” appears in 52 Bible verses (KJV).

In its first occurrence in pi, 52 is overlapped by 852 and followed by 110!

The numeric string 52 appears at the 172nd decimal digit of Pi.
               ^ <-- 172nd digit

As if all of this were not enough, the number 52 begins at position 172

The 172nd word of the Bible (KJV) is “ath”

את is the spelling of “aleph-tav” which is the equivalent of

Alpha & Omega…meaning,“the first and the last”.


Meanwhile, Bullinger says that Ahasuerus’ kingdom is mentioned 26 times.

26 in the numeric value of YHVH

Per Bullinger, “Ahasuerus” is mentioned by name 29 times in 27 verses, but…

in one of these it is not actually his name, but a reference made

to Astyages who is the same as Darius the Mede…an associate of Ahasuerus.

So then, technically, “Ahasuerus” appears 28 times in 27 verses,

although it is only the numbers of verses here that is relevant.

Esther 1:1, 1:2, 1:9, 1:10, 1:15, 1:16, 1:17, 1:19, 2:1, 2:12, 2:16, 2:21

3:1, 3:6, 3:7, 3:8, 3:12, 6:2, 7:5, 8:1, 8:7, 8:12, 9:2, 9:20, 9:30, 10:1, and 10:3

The sum of the 27 verses = 1006

(1x1) + (1x2) + (1x9) + (1x10) + (1x15) + (1x16) + (1x17) + (1x19) +

(2x1) + (2x12) + (2x16) + (2x21) + (3x1) + (3x6) + (3x7) + (3x8) + (3x12) +

(6x2) + (7x5) + (8x1) + (8x7) + (8x12) + (9x2) + (9x20) + (9x30) + (10x1) + (10x3) = 1006

Psalm 29:7 says:

“The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire”

This verse has a numeric value of 1006

The word “flames” (להבות) has a numeric value of 443,

as does “The Word” in John 1:1 (ο λογος)

“Ahasuerus”, meaning “I will be silent and poor, is Hebrew # 325

325 is the numeric value of “branch” (κλαδος).

Jesus, our Greater David, is the “branch” of David, Son of Jesse,

spoken of in Isaiah 11:1, which says:

“And there shall come forth a rod out of

the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.”

And who are they “which follow the Lamb withersoever He goes”?

“These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins.

…These were redeemed from among men,

being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.”

“Virgins” (παρθενοι) has a numeric value of 325!

There are a total of 167 verses in Esther…

167 is the numeric value of:

יהוה אלהינו יהוה אחד

“The LORD our God is One LORD”

167 is the 39th prime number.

“One LORD” (יהוה אחד) has a numeric value of 39

39 is the 26th composite number.

Ahasuerus’ Kingdom is referred to 26 times in the Book of Esther.

The encrypted Name YHVH has a numeric value of 26

The Hidden “Face” of The Lamb of God in Esther is The Lord Jesus Christ!

That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee,

that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them;

that they may be one, even as we are one:

I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one;

and that the world may know that thou hast sent me,

and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”

John 17:21-23
