Ruth

…or should that be Naomi?
The bible study this evening was a brief overview of the book of Ruth, as Ron is planning on going through it in depth in the next few bible studies. The book of Ruth tells of a family, living at the time of the Judges, a period of uncertainty and relativisim, who through their trials and tribulations suffer great loss.
Yet, it also tells of the great grace of God and his loving kindness, as the family find joy and peace through a kinsman redeemer.
Not only is God working at the level of this family, but he is working on a much greater level, because through Ruth, God plants the seeds of certainty and the truth, from which the monarchy of Israel is to be established, and ultimately, bring about the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ.
