  • Well considering she was keeping her true identity as a Jew a secret, she might not have. I don't think the Bible is clear on that issue. If she did, she probably did it as secretly as she could.

  • Esther was before Jesus yes? Well it wouldn't matter since we are still in OT laws. But you're right, if she did she was prolly super secret bout it.

  • My philosophy is, if it mattered if she did or not, the Bible would have mentioned it.

  • She was hiding her identity and she was unable to live freely. The point though is not whether or not she kept the sabbath, but that God was gracious to her and the Jews and used her to save His people from destruction, even though they were rebellious and still living in Persia.

  • Well doesn't it say that Esther was modest and her uncle mordechai would visit her? i would assume that she followed the commandments.
