    Dr. Price mentioned his theory during the live event that The book of Ester could have been something to be kept at home.

    This fascinated me, because it might explain why it is mentioned but not found among Dead Sea Scrolls.

    It also might be an explanation for why the Book of Ester doesn’t have the sacred name of God. It is not hard to imagine that they didn’t want to keep something that is too sacred inside your house.

    For freeing Jews it might have served them as a disguised survival kit, something that didn’t draw attention of their persecutors.
