don't understand the bible

Tyler 2022-10-14 07:41:05

I declare in advance that I am a non-religious person, and I have no concept of the Bible~ But after watching this film, I feel that people seem to regard faith as more important than everything else, and spiritual things seem to be difficult to express in words, so through translation... China People can't understand it.
However, I still have to praise the costumes and scenes, which reproduce the style of a glorious empire 2,500 years ago. I believe that people who like history will find it worth watching (such as me~).
The plot, I've watched it twice and it's still not clear. Maybe it's been edited and it doesn't seem very convincing, especially when she showed Wang the star pendant at the end, and everything ended happily?

One Night with the King quotes

  • Queen Esther: [daunted by Xerxes's anouncement, to Jesse] Nor there's not to be a Queen here any longer. Mordecai has given me his blessing. Let us leave tomorrow. Together.

  • Mordecai: [worried, about the search for a new Queen] There's no need for alarm. Nor likelihood they will not come for you. And not all who taken will be chosen. Not that the Queen has already been selected through bribery or chicanery.

    Queen Esther: [distressed] How do I keep our laws? How do I pray? What excuse do I offer God for not keeping his commandments?

    Mordecai: Oh, Hadassah. God see's the forward observance according to natures place. I think it would be better... if you forget that you were a Jew. If it is a sin, then, then, then let it be on my head. Promise me you will do that if you are taken. Promise me that!

    Queen Esther: If I am taken, I will do as you say.

    Mordecai: We should give a different name. Hadassah is too Jewish... Esther! Esther is a good Babylonian name. Yes. That is what we shall call you from now on. Esther of Susa. Promise me. Promise if you are taken.

    Queen Esther: I said if I am taken. If, if, if...

    [rising to the door]

    Queen Esther: But for now, you should look for me on the streets of Jerusalem. Dancing like David before the glory of the Lord.

    Mordecai: Uh Hadassah?

    Queen Esther: [singing, before she leaves] Who?
