Default The Jewish Roots of Ash Wednesday

In the book of Esther we can also see these events:

[Esther 7]
{7:1} When Mordecai had heard this, he tore his garments and put on sackcloth, strewing ashes on his head, and he cried out with a loud voice in the main street of the city, revealing the anguish of his soul.

{7:3} Likewise, in all provinces, towns, and places where the king’s cruel decision arrived, there was extraordinary mourning among the Jews with fasting, wailing, and weeping, with many using sackcloth and ashes for their bed.
John 3:27; John 15:5; Matthew 19:26
