itgelicht: Ruth stays with her mother-in-law Noömi
She could easily have chosen a different future. Her mother-in-law, an Israelite who had lost her husband and both sons in Moab, even encouraged her: “Go back to your own people. I will travel alone to the country where I come from.” Unlike the other daughter-in-law, Ruth knew nothing about it: “Your God is my God and your people are my people,” she said firmly.

In the spotlight: Ester prevents genocide
Ester has prevented genocide against the Jews. It all started with a party that got out of hand of the ill-fated king Ahasuerus. He wanted Queen Wasti to appear, to show all his male guests how beautiful she was. However, she put the king publicly in his shirt by not coming to the banquet hall. She was promptly rejected. Soon after, Ahasuerus missed his wife. Then he had the most beautiful women from the empire included in his harem, to choose a new queen over time. He chose Ester. When a law was later passed that allowed Jews to be killed, she had to be persuaded to talk to the king to prevent that. Because whoever went to the king without being asked, risked his life. Ester nevertheless did that and relied – as the story suggests – on God. This led to a new law: Jews were allowed to defend themselves. This prevented mass slaughter.
