What does the midrash mean when it says that Esther became queen over 127 provinces paralleling the 127 years of Sarah’s life? Why did Esther go through a similar experience to Sarah in becoming young again after becoming old? How does that parallel the state of the Jewish people at the time? Why does Sarah’s death coincide with Rivka’s birth? Why does the binding of Yitzchak coincide with the birth of Rivka? Why are Sarah, Rivka and Esther all taken by kings?
