In love,
I know they were found in two different languages but what throws me is where did the Greek version come from? Why is the last chapter of Esther so short? Why is God not credited for Him saving his people?

Please don't get me wrong, I am not arguing you. I am not trying to prove the Apocrypha right. I just don't get this part. Thanks for your answer though!
