But, where can we find about her beauty in the Tanakh and in the Brit Chadasha Scriptures?
Let’s start from the Book of Prophet Isaiah:
Isaiah 61:3: to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning (Psalm 30:3, Psalm 30:10-12), the garment of praise (Psalms 34:3-4. Psalms 119:164) for the spirit of heaviness, that they might be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of ADONAI (BERESHEET 2:8-9, PSALMS 92:14-15), that He may be glorified (Yochanan 14:12-14).
The Beauty of Esther is our First Key to unlocking Israel’s Redemption: Her beauty is not only in her figure and age, but it is in a beauty coming from the ashes (Isaiah 61:3; Hebrews 1:9) of her People Israel during captivity. Being an outcast, rejected by the surrounding culture, where idolatry had mixed with Judaism, and an orphan, she had to face challenges, loss and suffering since an early age and fight to stand in her Jewishness as all of her people in that historical context under a condition of slavery. But Hashem had a plan for her that went beyond her imagination, and her ashes were used to rebuild Faith (Emunah), Hope (Tikvah) & Love (Ahava) in the people of Israel (1 Corinthians 13:13).
