From the Gemara in Megillah 18a it is evident that there is also an aspect of publicizing the miracle associated with reading the megillah. We can now suggest that there are two aspects regarding the megillah reading: reading Kesuvim and publicizing the miracle. Perhaps this is the reason that we recite two berachos prior to reading the megillah, “…al mikra megillah” and “…she’asah nisim…” – the first for the obligation of reading Kesuvim, the second for publicizing the miracle.
