In this episode we look at the historical identification of Achashveirosh. This issue is deeply connected to the discrepancy between secular history and the Tanachic system regarding the dating of the Destruction of the First Beis Ha-Mikdash. Why is there such a discrepancy? What is each chronological system based on? How should that affect how we view the issue? What can we learn about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising regarding the issue?
