Two thousand five hundred years ago one of the most amazing dramas of all time unfolded in the heart of the world's super power. A young girl named Hadassah became queen. Her adopted father pushed her to endanger her life for the life of her people. Hadassah was reluctant. Her settled determination became, “If I perish, I perish” (Est. 4:16).
