7 Proofs That The Megila Was Written With Ruach HaKodesh

After the Nes of Purim, Esther wanted the story to be written and recorded in Jewish history.  The Chachomim were not happy about the idea.  There is a machlokes Tana'im if the torah alludes to a Megila written about Esther or not.

Most Tana'im agree that Esther was written with Ruach HaKodesh.  The Braisa brings 4 opinions of Tana'im as to the source for this.  The gemara brings an additional 3 amora'im that bring their own source.  Rava disproves all the sources of the Tana'im and says that the source brought by Shmuel the Amora is the only unquestionable source.  Click here to see Revach List .
