First, we're not Jews in the desert, and our confines of our community have no real resemblance to theirs in that time, which included an exceptionally antagonistic relationship with the Canaanites, Philistines, and other surrounding peoples.Secondly, these verses are not only about religious, but ethnic as well.Esther, a Jewish orphan, was married to the Persian king Ahasuerus.When a prince conspired to convince the king to kill the Jews throughout the empire, Esther was uniquely positioned to convince the king otherwise, revealing her identity as a Jew.She quotes 1 Corinthians , which states, "A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives.But if her husband dies, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord." While "only in the Lord" is unclear in meaning, what is clear is that this verse is referring to widows.

She posits that all interfaith relationships end up in three situations: marginalize your faith, marginalize your partner, or be miserable together until an inevitable divorce.

Could someone be equally yoked with an "unbeliever" (her term, not mine), or could you be unequally yoked with someone of the same faith or denomination?

The verse could have said more simply "don't be yoked with unbelievers," but it includes the unequal, which really points to the challenge, being stuck with people who don't inspire you to dig deeper in your faith.

Once again, I respect some people will take this to mean that you shouldn't be in an interfaith marriage, but I simply want to illuminate that a more complex discussion can be had.

Even then, however, the Bible tells us of the powerful story of Esther.
