I think more than any other book, Esther wreaks havoc on those who use the Old Testament
for a morality lesson. In a period when Ezra decried syncretistic marriage and Daniel
and his friends were putting their lives on the line, Esther hid her Jewishness in
order to favor a pagan king, before and after marriage. Despite this, she is held
up as a hero. It is only when we look at Esther and Mordechai as prefigurements
of Christ, that this book makes sense.
