Divine Providence in the Miracles of Purim

In this lesson, Rabbi Nachman Simon explains that the Purim miracle happened through many instances of hidden Divine Providence. For example, Mordechai was one of the Sages of the Jewish Supreme Sanhedrin during their exile in Persia. In the Megillah (the Book of Esther), it relates that he overheard a plot to assassinate King Achashveros. In fact, it was being spoken in the rare foreign language of Tarshish. He understood, because the Sanhedrin Sages were required to be fluent in all the 70 languages of Biblical times.
