The symbolism of the chests as well as the reasoning of the suitors are all explained beautifully right in the play (but a hint: don't overlook the contents of the chests--each one contains an object as well as a note.)

As for the Christian teachings, I'd do a search for the three different materials the chests are made of--the complete searchable text of the King James Version of the Bible can be found on the main page of this site. A couple of (perhaps) not-so-obvious verses from the Bible may help as well: Matthew 23:27 and 1 Samuel 16:7.
