    The Book of Ruth is a refreshing story after the Book of Judges, as it ends with the 25th verse of 21st chapter: ”In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes”.

    The Book of Ruth is often times treated as a book of history for Christians since its setting is around the time of the Book of Judges and gives linage to the Messiah, Jesus Christ, in the Old Testament. But the fundamental meaning of the Book of Ruth is to show a contrast between itself and the book of Judges. In the Book of Judges, the love of God and holding obedience to God’s covenant are taking a backseat to the Hebrews own wants, needs and struggles. But the book of Ruth restores that…

    The Book Of Ruth

    • 4 Pages

    To both men and women, Ruth is one of the most beloved books of the Bible. Ruth is the one of the only books in the Bible which have a woman as the main character, other than God. Ruth shows women, one in particular, in a remarkable light. Although Ruth happens during the time of the book Judges, it greatly varies from it. While focusing and depicting a portion of Ruth and Naomi’s life, the book is a short narrative of love, family, dedication, and, most of all, God. The book of Ruth begins…

Further, it would be faulty to attribute Ruth to being simply a story of a cause and effect relationship between kindness and positive things. Such as the cause being kindness with results in the effect…

    When we think of the Bible, the first thing that comes to most people’s mind is Adam and Eve, the miracles performed by Jesus, the conversion of Paul or the poetic word of the Psalms. Most are prone to forget about the women in the Bible, for in the Bible the characterization of most women is either that of being a seductress, an unholy prostitute or a supporting character there to either lend aid to men in terms of pleasure or as someone’s wife. Ruth, a book about a lonely widowed young woman,…
