So Boaz Took Ruth

From Series: God of the Ordinary

Ruth 4:1  (ID: 2263)

Before Boaz could take Ruth to be his bride, certain requirements had to be met within the Levirate Law. As a man of God, Boaz was determined to act in accordance with this law of redemption – even though it meant waiting and risking the loss of Ruth to a closer kinsman-redeemer. When Boaz became Ruth’s husband, he assumed both the privilege of buying the family land and the duty of ensuring the family line of Ruth’s first husband would continue. Boaz shows us how our Kinsman-Redeemer, Jesus Christ, takes us as penniless aliens and provides us with security, a future and a hope.


Boaz Redeems Ruth

1Now Boaz had gone up to the gate and sat down there. And behold, the redeemer, of whom Boaz had spoken, came by. So Boaz said, “Turn aside, friend; sit down here.” And he turned aside and sat down.
