I’ve been commenting on the book of Ruth- and talk about it on today’s video.
When I taught the book of judges- we saw how God raised up deliverers- who defeated the ‘wicked’ enemies.
One of those enemies was Moab.
Yet- in the Old testament- the book of Ruth comes right after Judges- why?
Ruth’s story took place at the time of the judges- and it gives us a ‘good’ thing that happened- a story of a righteous girl- who was from Moab.
We see redemption in the book.
Ruth was the daughter in law of Naomi.
Naomi and her husband moved to Moab during a time of famine.
They took 2 sons with them.
Naomi’s husband died- the 2 sons got married while there.
Then the sons died.
Naomi was devastated- and decided to go back home.
She tells her 2 daughters in law that she’s leaving- and says goodbye.
But Ruth desires to go back to Naomi’s home land- Judah/Israel.
Ruth is a young beautiful girl- and her mother in law says ‘why go back with me- even if I have another son- would you wait till he was old enough- so you could marry him’?
Yet Ruth insists- and makes Naomi’s God- hers.
When they return- Ruth goes to glean [get the leftovers] of the Barley/grain from the pickers.
The women did this at the time- they were permitted to get the grain that was left behind.
She works in a field owned by Boaz- who just happens to be a relative of Naomi- which means he can ‘redeem’ Ruth.
The Kinsman Redeemer was a man in the family who ‘took up’ for the weaker in the family.
And he had the right to marry the widow of another family member- to raise up children for the relative [brother] who died.
So- Ruth was a widow- from a relative of Boaz [Naomi’s dead son].
See redemption here?
She was ‘connected’ to the family- by the death of a ‘son’.
Moabites had no right to the God of Israel- they were pagans.
Yet- she is now in a position of ‘being redeemed’.
Boaz shows special favor towards Ruth- he tells the reapers- the pickers of the grain- to leave extra in the field- just for Ruth.
Ruth goes to lie down with Boaz- a sign that she’s willing to marry him.
Boaz is an older man- and he’s surprised that Ruth- a young beautiful girl- would even want him.
He says she shows nobility- because she could have any of the younger men- but she’s doing a right thing.
But there’s one Catch- Boaz tells Ruth that there is a closer near relative- and he has to go see if that man wants Ruth first- if not- Boaz will marry her.
Ok- that’s what I covered on the video- Ruth 1-3.
I’ll mention chapter 4- the last chapter- on a future video.
But- to not leave you hanging too much.
Boaz and Ruth will have a son- by the name of Obed.
Obed has a son- by the name of Jesse.
And Jesse has a son- King David.
Ruth is mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus in Matthews Gospel.
It’s quite a story of redemption- that this Moabite girl- had a son who was a great ancestor of Jesus himself.
Jesus is our ‘Boaz’ our redeemer-
Who ‘married’ people who were not worthy- yet we- his bride- have been ‘redeemed’.
And as Boaz loved Ruth- so Jesus loves us- his bride.
Yes- a true romance indeed.
Matthew 1:5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
Matthew 1:6 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;
Ruth 3:1 Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee?
Ruth 3:2 And now is not Boaz of our kindred, with whose maidens thou wast? Behold, he winnoweth barley to night in the threshingfloor.
Ruth 3:3 Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy raiment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor: but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking.
Ruth 3:4 And it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.
Ruth 3:5 And she said unto her, All that thou sayest unto me I will do.
Ruth 3:6 And she went down unto the floor, and did according to all that her mother in law bade her.
Ruth 3:7 And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of corn: and she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and laid her down.
Ruth 3:8 And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself: and, behold, a woman lay at his feet.
Ruth 3:9 And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman.
Ruth 3:10 And he said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich.
Ruth 3:11 And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a virtuous woman.
Ruth 3:12 And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman: howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I.
Ruth 3:13 Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will perform unto thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do the kinsman’s part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, as the LORD liveth: lie down until the morning.
Ruth 3:14 And she lay at his feet until the morning: and she rose up before one could know another. And he said, Let it not be known that a woman came into the floor.
Ruth 3:15 Also he said, Bring the vail that thou hast upon thee, and hold it. And when she held it, he measured six measures of barley, and laid it on her: and she went into the city.
Ruth 3:16 And when she came to her mother in law, she said, Who art thou, my daughter? And she told her all that the man had done to her.
Ruth 3:17 And she said, These six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me, Go not empty unto thy mother in law.
Ruth 3:18 Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.
Note- Please do me a favor, those who read/like the posts- re-post them on other sites as well as the site you read them on. I deal with issues at times that it would be beneficial for some of you to download and save the file from the Word Press link. This creates a permanent record. The on-line videos are only good if sites are not hacked- which has happened in the past. Thanks- John.#
