Sept 21: Ruth and Boaz

Posted on: September 22nd, 2014 by Amy Vetter

Ruth and Naomi moved back to Bethlehem to Naomi’s family’s land. Ruth went to gather grain in the fields of a man named Boaz, who turned out to be a family redeemer. As family redeemer, Boaz had the right to marry Ruth and claim the property and responsibility for himself. Boaz did just that and took care of Ruth and Naomi. Ruth and Boaz soon had a son whom they named Obed. Obed was the grandfather of King David. Through David’s line God sent the perfect Redeemer in the person of Jesus Christ. We need help because we sin, Jesus bought our salvation for us by taking our punishment when He died on the cross.
