“The events of the book of Ruth are like a jewelled cameo woven into the fabric of Israel’s chequered background.
The account of Ruth’s arrival on the pages of God’s Word is an interweaving of His grace, His call – so typical of His reaching out to Abraham, Rahab, and to Gentiles – and His purpose. So, during Israel’s dull days, she is like a colourful butterfly emerging from a very drab chrysalis. There is no shallow end to the story of Ruth, as depths of despair at the beginning lead on to deepening delight, which causes us to exclaim, “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!”
Join Bible teacher Andy McIlree in this heart-warming study as, chapter by chapter, he explores the depths of this wonderful Old Testament book, and in particular how Boaz is a picture of the Lord Jesus as our kinsman redeemer, bridegroom and the Lord of the harvest.
