Ruth - Introduction

Book Introduction - Ruth

Read first chapter of Ruth

This lovely story should be read in connection with the first half of Judges, as it presents a picture of life in Israel at that time.

Typically, the book may be taken as a foreview of the church (Ruth), as the Gentile bride of Christ, the Bethlehemite who is able to redeem. Ruth also gives a normal Christian experience:

  1. Ruth deciding, 1
  2. Ruth serving, 2.
  3. Ruth resting, 3.
  4. Ruth rewarded, 4.

The events recorded in Ruth cover a period of 10 years (Ussher)
