Sermons on Esther

 

 

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.
