The book of Ruth has been regarded as one of the most lovable and fascinating stories in the Bible. It begins as a story of a woman who journeys back to Bethlehem with her mother-in-law, after the deaths of both of their husbands. Adding interest to this is that Ruth is a Moabite, a foreigner belonging to an archenemy of Israel, and yet becomes the grandmother of Israel’s greatest king, David. Ruth is a story of hesed (loyal devotion) and of diligence and kindness. At its center is a love story between Ruth and Naomi, Ruth and Boaz, and ultimately between God and His people. Its central themes include: famine turning into plenty, barrenness to childbirth, and loneliness to redemption. It teaches us about the enduring questions of human life.
