"But here, it's like they're still celebrating. It was here. Yeah. And we built around it and now it's part of us. Yeah. Or in this case, like the palace gets turned into a little symbolic. You know, garden oasis. So yeah, right now we're just looking at 7th century wall carving of ashurbanipal's throne room, where it's just a big garden and he's hosting some other royal dignitaries and looks like he has some sort of arc of the covenant kind of thing there. This is solid point. I think it might be a serving table for the food items. It almost looks like it has like chairman wings on it. Yeah, it's interesting. Handles, but famously in ashurbanipal's palace, he made one of the most famous gardens in the ancient world. And he says he describes it as a little, he channeled through a conduit or those things called conduit of water where you can direct it. Aqueduct. Made a big aqueduct to funnel a stream into his palace garden and then he had this court poets all about it about how it was like the center of the kingdom and he talks about all the different types of bushes that he grew there. The whole point is, even when a king, in a city, wanted to create an ideal space. To display how the gods and live here with me and they have pointed me to rule. What they make is a garden. Yeah. That's the fundamental picture here. And so the Garden of Eden is another expression of that ideal that God, the ultimate cosmic king for the israelite authors would touch heaven on earth together and plant his human ruling images and what do you get? It's in the garden. So that's the first very general point to make. Like that's what we should be feeling. Those vibes. We're in the garden itself. So when we are there in the garden story, God plants a garden in the middle of the desolate wilderness. There's a wilderness, provides a river out of the river, water, create the mud. And I think a wilderness I think of a flat place. Oh yeah. But you keep saying like, look, the river flows all the earth. So this is a wilderness that was on a mountain. Yeah, or at least a hilly region. In this case, it doesn't say it, but this stream that God's going to provide is on a hill because it's going to become a river that splits and goes out to water all the earth. Yeah, pretty epic hill. The epic hill. Totally. Yeah. So the elevation of the hill is not drawn attention to, or it's not focused on here, but it's kind of assumed it is assumed because water goes downhill. So God forms a human from the dust of the ground and breathed into the nostrils of breath of life. So then there's a big focus on that river and says it went out and watered the garden and after it left the garden it separated and became four rivers out it goes. And lo and behold, this is going to be important for the cities. It waters one river is called pichon. And it goes down to the land of havilah, which is, as you find out later in genesis, an important

"It was a insignificant looking little insect that lived and bred on prickly pears. And the Spanish called it cochineal, cochineal. And so by the middle of the 16th century, these little insects were the most valuable import from the Americas after gold and silver. And the Spanish managed to keep their monopoly on it for more than 200 years, which is pretty impressive, but inevitably eventually the Brits and the French and the Dutch and so on found their own sources. And prickly pears and cochineals go on to have their own interesting history in quite different parts of the world, but to keep on track about this early fascination with these first new arrivals as you picked up on people wanted to collect them. So they were prized for their looks. And as you said, the paintings in the book are very detailed and will come on to how they were done and everything. But the aloes in particular are presented rather beautifully in their fancy colorful urns that their potted up in. They're not made to look like wild plants at all. And that's how they would have been displayed by collectors. And perhaps surprisingly, some of the most enthusiastic collectors were in Northern Europe, where the cool damp climate. It is quite the opposite of what most succulents like. But I don't know, maybe that's exactly why. There's nothing like a challenge or a scarcity or something to make it covetable and a must have. Yeah, you're right. Some of these containers are, I mean, I might even describe them that they're very jolly and some of them I would even say a bordering on gaudy. That's quite elaborate. I mean, some of there's a few which are kind of more simple, just look like sort of half oak barrels, but then there's some which have really gone for the whole pink and gold scrolls and ruffles look. I mean, it must have been made these plants look even more dramatic. I mean, I guess and also was just showing off the wealth of the owner. I'm assuming, along with the valuable plant, they've got a valuable pot to go with it. That's definitely case because this wasn't your average Joe. Living in an ordinary street who could afford these. The biggest collectors were the aristocracy. We all know the story about pineapple pits and things like that being grown. And it was all about saying how wealthy, how grand I am that I've been able to produce this exotic plant. And yes, the pots were all part of the sac look. But rather nicely, we can see one of those collections today. If you happen to be in the vicinity of London, because of the collection that Mary the second made. Mary was the daughter of James the second. James 7th, the Scotts out there. And her interest in plants probably began at an early age because her tutor was an enthusiastic botanist who later became the bishop of London. And then she was married off to Prince William of orange and of course, moved to the Netherlands, and she would have come across a great many more plants that were new to her there because Williams was also interested in botany and plants and the Dutch at the time had extensive territories. The Dutch East Indies and Malacca bits of India and Southern Africa and then right across to the Caribbean and the coast of South America. Then when she William came to England, they were asked to become joint monarchs in 1688. They brought with them what Mary called her tender exotics. And they were kept in special early glass houses and oranges at the royal palace at Hampton court. There's one section of the gardens, which was known as the glass case garden, and it had three hot houses, and each of them, these make our greenhouses seem very pathetic. Each hothouse was 55 foot long. That's over 16 meters. And very sadly, Mary died when she was very young, she was only 32. But the collection that she and William as well made was really one of the best in the world, and it continued to be treasured by the royals who came after them. And when George the third decided to live at Q palace rather than Hampton court, he had the plants all moved there. And in time, her exotic garden became one of the foundations of what's now world famous, Cuba botanical gardens. But have you been to Hampton court palace recently, Jane? I have for the flower show, but I didn't get a chance to look at the gardens. And I haven't really been to the gardens park since I was probably a child. Which is a long time ago. I remember getting very lost in the maze. Right, well, next time you go, avoid the maze. And head for the queen's garden. Because for, oh, goodness. 30 years, I think, the garden team there has been researching Mary's original collection. So you can now visit what they recreated. There are lots of orange trees, William and Mary of orange, of course, but also lots of the succulents that she had. And in the summer, they put them all displayed outside in replicas of the decorative pots that she would have used. There's lots of Delft type blue and white as you can imagine, but just the sort of pots that had been depicted in the book that the illustrations came from. Oh, well, that is definitely going on the garden visit list in that case. That's yeah, that's interesting. And I didn't realize that that was the foundation that then that collection sort of was the foundation of Q, which is also really interesting. And there was one particular succulent that you talk about in the book, which is still going to call this a form plant at one of these kind of fat plants that still going, and it alive today, although I suspect it's possibly past its best. Can you tell me a bit more about that? Oh, you're thinking of this is such a sweet story, I think. Though you score at the end that you realize apologies. The Austrian emperors were also great collectors. And by the 18th century, the imperial palace gardens in Vienna had to an amazing reputation for the plants they contained. And right at the end of the 18th century, they received this really odd looking plant from South Africa. As you say, if the type of caldy form, which is succulents that store water in their trunks, so they usually have quite a look about them. But this was any small. It wasn't tree sized. And nobody had seen anything like it, and it was just kept as a curiosity. In fact, for quite a while it was believed not even to be a living plant. They thought it was a fossil. And it was only in the beginning of the 20th century that it was finally identified. And it's a Pocky a crisper.

"The idea that wine is a strong drink and it is raging and there is great danger that is represented in the imbibing of search is set against the fact that wine is given by God to gladden the heart of man. And so there is little that is able to gladden the heart of a king here in relationship to what he's enjoying and he goes out into the palace garden erupting in his anger. Now there's all kinds of thoughts, aren't there that run through our minds as to what he's doing out in the garden? I don't think he's out in the garden trying to figure out what he's supposed to do. Heyman has already figured out what's going to happen to him because he saw 7 says he saw that harm was determined against him by the king. He knew in that instant, I'm a dead man. Because he knew what this king was like. So if the king hasn't gone out into the garden to say, what should I do now? What is he doing in the garden? I think he's out in the garden. This is conjecture in my part. Your sense of people figuring it out. He's out in the garden, on the horns of a dilemma. Because he had signed haman's edict into law. He had backed it with his royal signature. He was as much responsible for the potential demise of his queen and the death of the Jewish people that eradication as him and himself in many ways more so. So what is he now going to do? Is he now going to kill his prime minister? For a plot that he the king had actually approved. And how is that going to play? And then newspaper. Whereas ordered the assassination today of prime minister Heyman. For a plot to annihilate the Jews, which has been published throughout the entire kingdom and is anticipated in some 8 months time.

"And the king returned from the palace garden to the place where they were drinking wine as Heyman was falling on the couch, where Esther was. And the king said, will he even assault the queen in my presence in my own house? As the word left the mouth of the king, they covered him in his face. One of the eunuchs in attendance on the king said, moreover, the gallows that him and his prepared for mordecai, whose words saved the king is standing at haman's house 50 cubits high. And the king said, hang him on that. So they hanged him and on the gallows that he had prepared for mordecai. Then the wrath of the king abated. Thanks, Peter God, for his word. Father rebel before you were great and good God, thanking you that you have made yourself known to us, the wonder of your ways and your dealings in your word. And as we continue our study here in this book from so long ago, our prayers that you will make yourself known to us, help us to see ourselves and to see our savior. And to turn to him in repentance and in faith for its in his name we pray. Amen. Some of you will remember that I told you before that radar was invented by a Scotsman. A man by the name of Robert Watson watt. He was later knighted for his work in the military. And the invention of radar was a wartime invention, and he received as a reward some $140,000, which was the largest sum ever awarded for a wartime invention. Subsequently, when he was driving in Canada, he was caught for speeding in a radar trap. And acknowledging the irony of what was represented in that, he wrote a little verse about it, which goes as follows pity, sir Robert Watson watt, strange target of his radar plot. And thus, with others, I could mention a victim of his own invention. Now, I begin there because that provides an apt summary of what happens here in chapter 7 to Heyman. Far more significant, far more devastating, but nevertheless, Heyman is essentially hoisted on his own petar. You will recall, I hope that at the end of chapter 5 him and had been pleased at the suggestion of his wife and friends to take mordecai out. If he was such a nuisance to him, let's be done with mordecai. Let's kill him. And so if you allow your eye to scan the text, then you will find inverse 14 of chapter 5 that this idea pleased came in and he had the gallows made. And so at the end of chapter 5, he has the gallows made. And now at the end of chapter 7, we read the words so they hanged him and on the gallows that he had prepared for mordecai. Now what a difference a day makes. Heyman would have been well served by paying attention to the wisdom of Solomon. Captured for us largely in the book of proverbs. A book that tells us that real wisdom is found in the fear of the lord. In understanding who God is, what God desires what God has done. What he is accomplished in making a way for sinful men and women who have no interest in him to be reconciled to him. It is in this discovery of God. And in this rightful sense of fear of God, that wisdom has to be found.

"Some people who live their lives as secret disciples. They prefer to keep their faith private. Eventually, though, there will come a day when every person has to step forward and declare what they believe. Today on truth for life, we'll find out what happened when Queen Esther revealed her true identity to the king. Alistair begg is continuing a series called a study in Esther. Esther chapter 7 verse, while that started verse 14 of chapter 6. I had the conversation has taken place between his wife, that's the wife of him and some of his friends. They're essentially telling him that he's pretty well on his own now. And while they were yet talking with him the king's eunuchs arrived and hurried to bring him into the feast that Esther had prepared. So the king and him and went into feast with Queen Esther and on the second day as they were drinking wine after the feast, the king again said to Esther, what is your wish, Queen Esther? It shall be granted you. And what is your request? Even to the half of my kingdom, it shall be fulfilled. Then queen Astor answered, if I have found favor in your sight or king, and if it please the king, let my life be granted me for my wish, and my people, for my request, for we've been sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be killed, and to be annihilated. If we had been sold merely as slaves, men and women, I would have been silent for our reflection is not to be compared with the loss to the king. Then king and his wearers said to Queen Esther, who is he, and where is he, who has dared to do this? And Esther said, a full and enemy, this wicked Heyman. Then haman was terrified before the king and the queen. And the king arose in his wrath from wine drinking and went into the palace garden, but hayman stayed to beg for his wife from Queen Esther for he saw that harm was determined against him by the king.

"So what do you think she should do now? Trade the garden walnut. What do you think? It could be a poisonous walnut. A hug, maybe. If she could either ask the guards to see the prize, or throw the walnut at maybe a window that he was. Oh, that's interesting. She didn't throw the walnut at the prince's window. Instead, she decided to get a job in the royal kitchens. She worked and worked away as a kitchen mate until her hands were rough and red and her arms were strong like ropes. And she learned some things. She learned that you scour a pot with steel, but never the fine plates. She learned that soap was good for plates, but bad for cast iron pants. And she learned that the prince was due to be married to another princess. Are you kidding me? You know, after all this, right? The princess watched the prince dine with his bride to be. The bride to be was jealous and selfish and vain. The prince didn't even seem to like his bride to be very much. He basically like the princess before she changed. That's a great point. The princess was certain that if only she could talk to the prince and tell him of her great journey to reach him, perhaps he would reconsider going away with his bride to be. But the princess could never speak to him alone. The bride to be was always there, preventing the princess from even getting close. So what should she do? Take the walnuts and stuff it down soon. The princess sat down in the palace gardens and cracked the walnut. Out of the nutshell, spilled a beautiful ball gown. Exactly the color of the ice mountains at sunrise and the sands of the desert at sunset. What is she gonna do now? She's gonna wear the dress and somehow change what she wants. The princess was just about to put the ball down on when the bride to be rushed up to her. She had been walking in the garden when she saw the ball gown in the princess's lap. The bride to be ran up to the princess and said, I'll give you anything for that dress. So the princess thought carefully. And then she replied. I just want ten minutes to talk to the prince. And she quickly added, you can be there. The bride to be eyed the princess skeptically. But then she looked at the dress that was the color of sunrise and sunset at the same time. The bride to be replied. 5 minutes. Deal. So the bride to be took the princess to the throne room. As they entered, the bride to be hissed 5 minutes. When the princess who was working as a kitchen maid saw the prince, she threw her arms wide and shouted. My best friend. And the prince said, who are you? The princess stared. He didn't remember her? She'd climbed over the ice mountains with knitting needles and rolled over a blazing desert on a waterwheel and journeyed for a whole year, and he didn't remember her? She said, I freed you from the iron stove. The prince said the bride to be exclaimed. What? Is she talking about? The princess turned to her. He didn't tell you? He was trapped in an iron stove for a very long time. I got him out. The prince squinted at the princess. The girl who freed me was a princess, not a kitchen maid. She was pampered and soft and a bit spoiled. You are not she. But the princess said. I am. Or I was. I climbed over the glass mountains with knitting needles and rolled over a blazing desert on a water wheel and journeyed for a whole year to find you. I came all this way because I'd never had a best friend before I met you, and I was selfish and conceded in spoiled, and I made you way too long. And I could not stand the idea of losing you forever. The prince stared. And stared. And stared. And then, he smiled. He took the princess's hand. He said, this is the one who freed me from the iron stove. The one who climbed the glass mountains with knitting needles and crossed the blazing desert for me. The first best friend I ever had, too. And the bride to be said wait. What? The prince said, let's go. I want to see this blazing desert, and these glass mountains. You didn't come over them yourself? Ask the princess? How did you get home then? Oh, I'm from here. That does not answer the question. The prince shrugged. Anyway, you want to show me the mountains in the desert? Yes. To the princess. The sunsets and sunrises, particularly. And they set off together, leaving both of their kingdoms behind, and they lived happily ever after. The end. What was the walnut for? What was the woman for? Oh yeah. Yeah. How could the frost dick that she was a princess? How could the toads break that she was going to need all those things to get to the prince? But that was they heard that they needed all those things to get there. But what about did they know she was a princess? The spoiled one? Yeah. I don't know. All right, get out of here, guys.

"Them. -ployees can collaborate together. So even if you have the smartest employees without humility to work with other people the businesses doomed the gateway to an open mind partially is because it allows you to process information without always ragging fearfully or defensively so to that is managing yourself which means taming your own emotions and thinking critically reflective listening listening to learn and understand rather than just give this constant defensive answer and i just think it's funny that they called it the new smart. They found that most business leaders do not like the word humility. And isn't that just great irony. Is i think a lot of them. Associate humility with meekness. I don't think meekness is is a problem. Either but i think they think about in terms of weakness who would have thought. The united states leaders don't like the word humility so they change it to something that would stroke their egos but the finding seems to be there whether it's basketball or business. Humility actually allows for a community. Accompany a team to actually function together. When you think about it if you walk into a room of people and you thank you are the smartest person in the room and or you think you have to be the smartest person in the room because you're quote the manager the leader whatever. There's no way you can hear any input from anybody or take any criticism because then you're not the smartest person in the room. You're not opened at. You're not open to ideas. You're not open to criticism. You're not open to getting better. You're just opened a being the big guy and you know. I gotta have all the answers. That's why another word for humility. You could just say as reality that with humility you accept reality it seeing yourself in the world true as they are with all its faults. Sins and beauty. Humility is seeing the fake for being fake but winning most people don't wanna see reality. Humility is seeing the reality of truth and people and even your business and what's going on and would say humility even makes us more human literally. The word humility comes from humus. Which means earth so the humble they can be their true selves true human beings and this is like i mentioned kind of some sociological evidence to back that up but believe it or not. That's the bible. There's all these stories in the bible. That humility makes you a true human being one of my favorites from the book of daniel where spink speaks about the king nebuchadnezzar the he's in babylon right and he has built this great city. One of the seven wonders of the ancient world and because of his arrogance. God punishes them. He's not he's not part of the chosen people but still guard. God guys them and there's just great story where he looks and he says look at everything. I have done when the joke is known. Oh god has has worked with you. So he actually gets punished for his era gance and he becomes a beast if he's gonna be prideful. There's not a true human being and get some sort of like mental illness and he becomes kind of like the ammo. Figures hair grows long. His nail grows long. He's in the palace gardens living like this wild animal just clearly lost his mind and ideas. When you lose humility you've lost your humanity..

"Heyman was enjoying his new position as second in command under the king. His specially appreciated having everyone in the court bowel and pay homage to him. Everything was going great until he saw mordechai in the kingsgate and mordechai paid him no mind. This infuriated him but he held his temper until he got home. Then he called his friends to come over and brought his wife's arash so that he might pour out his indignation with them. Heyman reminded them how rich he was. How many children he had and how the king had promoted him so that he was over all the other officials and servants not mention queen. Esther had invited him to an intimate dinner. Which just him and the king but none of it mattered to him because there was mordechai the ju- sitting there at the kingsgate then his wife and friends gave their advice. They told him to build a gallows and in the morning to go to the king and suggest that mordechai behind on it after that he could go to the banquet. Worry free but they didn't account for was that night the king couldn't sleep so he commanded his servants to bring in the book of records and read it to the king so that it might help them sleep but as he read. He ran across the account where mordecai had worn tim about an attempt on his life. The king asked what had been done for mordecai to thank him for saving the king's life and the servant said nothing had been done so the king asked who was in the court. Well at the moment he asked mordechai had just arrived eager to present his request to the king. The king brought in mordechai and ask him what should be done for someone to king wish to honor mordechai of course assume the king was talking about him so he came up with an elaborate plan. That involved a royal robe and a parade through the city. The king liked the idea and ordered him to bring plan to fruition for mordecai heyman followed orders but as soon as he was done parading mordechai around he went into mourning covering his head. He hurried home to pour out his sorrows to his wife and friends again when she heard what had happened. warned him if mordechai before whom you have begun to fall is of jewish descent you will not prevail against him but will surely fall before him. They had no time to discuss. Further for that time the kings unix came to escort him to esther's second banquet. The king esther and heyman dine together and after the meal. The king repeated his appeal to find out what it was that as to requested this time she was ready. If i have found favor in your sight oh king and if it pleases the king let my life be given me at my petition. And my people at my request for we have been sold my people and i to be destroyed to be killed and to be annihilated. The king completely clueless what she was talking about. Wanted to know who would do such a thing. She pointed her finger at heyman calling him a wicked adversary and enemy. Her accusation caused heyman to tremble in fear and the king to tremble enrage. The king left behind his wine and storm to the palace garden. Heyman realizing the king was plotting against him decided to make a plea to esther to save his life only as he advanced towards esther he tripped and landed on the couch where she sat king hazardous arrived in time to see him draped over the queen. The king exclaimed. willie also assault the queen. While i'm in the house as the word left the king's mouth they covered hayman's face one of the unix pointed out that mordechai had set up fifty foot gallows for mordecai the one who saved the king's life the king ordered heyman be impaled on the gallows which they did when it was done. The king. Calm down that day. The king gave hayman's house to esther and appointed mordechai to hayman's position and esther appointed mordechai over hayman's house. Isn't it interesting when women were seen as little more than property. Then heyman sought out advice from his wife when he was first upset by mordecai's refusal to bow heyman called in his friends and his wife. It's funny that he begins by pointing out to them his power and influence. Of course they already knew that but maybe he just needed a soundboard to reassure himself. And perhaps that's why he listened to psoriasis. Crazy suggestion to build fifty foot gallows because it appealed to his ego. So what about rash wishy flattered that he consulted her as haymond reminded them of his powerful position to take go head since she was the wife of such an important man. And this is very important. Man was seeking her opinion. Perhaps that's why she came up with such an extravagant suggestion to further prove both his power and hers as his wife obviously she blurted out without thinking through it and he lewin along with it without question. What a contrast to the second time when mordecai came to her for comfort and advice after hearing what had happened zorich realized the foolishness of her previous advice but it was too late from her later words. We can gather that deresh had a gift for insight. If only she had thought through the words the first time and sought wisdom rather than spouting out. The first thing that came to mind was blessed with an amazing opportunity to have a husband who actively sought her advice was quite an honor if only should cherish that honor and chosen her words more carefully. I can imagine that suresh but the rest of her life regretting her foolish advice. I she had to watch her husband impaled by the gallows pole and then left to die high up in the sky in front of her house then. She lost her house. When the king gave it to esther and esther appointed mordechai to to run it did they let her remain. I doubt it more than likely she would have returned to family or else be reduced to a position as a servant or slave. It's interesting that the book of esther and closes with wives who were at the top of their game then lost it all due to their impulsive decisions. At least vast. He kept her self respect. Pours arash had no such comfort. What about you do you act. Impulsively like bashed ian rush. Or do you take time to carefully. Calculate your words and actions like esther. Have you ever paid dearly for a few offhand word. Thrown out without thought. What do you do in such times today. Let us challenge ourselves to take seriously any time. Someone comes to us for advice. And to conscientiously pray and ponder so that the words that come out of our mouth are straight from the lord. Oh lord god. This story of russia's rash behaviour hits far too close to home. Oh how quick we are to act emotionally lashing out at those who heard or disappoint us. Forgive us for those times. We speak i and pray. Last grant is wisdom so that we're prepared and ready whenever anyone comes to us seeking advice. Give us a call when those around us are upset. Use our words for good nod. Evil we love. You sat very much in christ. We pray amen. That concludes today's episode of all gods. Women it's also the last in our three week series. It's not easy being a queen.
