Is your life not turning out as you had hoped? Has God disappointed you? The trials of life test us to see if we will trust in the promises of God. On the surface, the book of Ruth would appear to be about love and friendship, and that certainly is a theme. However, more profoundly it is the story of people of Israel and the need for a Redeemer. In the same way, God desires to redeem your past and restore your future, so that you may find fulfillment in His gracious love!
In these six sessions of Redeemed: Seeing the Messiah in the Book of Ruth DVD, you\'ll learn:
The historical background to the book of Ruth.
What marriage, widowhood, and redemption meant in Bible times.
How Ruth, a destitute foreigner, becomes an ancestor of Jesus Christ.
How Naomi moves from bitterness to blessedness.
How Boaz as a kinsmen-redeemer points to our ultimate redeemer-Jesus Christ.
Enjoy fantastic section-by-section commentary and insights into the historical and biblical background of Israel at that time, such as-
Naomi had a social status lower than a servant once her husband and sons died.
Ruth took home more than 10 times the average salary of harvesters when she worked in Boaz\'s field.
When Ruth asked Boaz to \spread the corner of his garment\ over her, she is asking him to make a symbolic gesture for marriage (plus you will find out how this particular act points to our redemption and covenant with Christ).
