The Story of Ruth

“In the midst of all the wars, violence, and bloodshed of these times, life proceeds rather normally for many Israelites.  In sharp contrast to the national breach of faith in God on the part of the Israelites comes the account of personal faithfulness on the part of a woman toward her widowed mother-in-law, Naomi, and with the Israelites and their God.  Her choice brings her the blessings of both a new husband and a son, through whom Ruth becomes the great-grandmother of David, who will be king of all Israel.

This beautiful love story foreshadows the grace which one day will extend to Jews and Gentiles alike through still another Descendant of this godly Gentile woman named Ruth.”
