Our Relationship with the True Redeemer
The book of Ruth is an interesting book. It is an amazing story of commitment and dedication, trials and testing, deliverance and freedom. Everything is embedded in it – well, apart from a nasty villain but we cannot ask for everything. Yet like other historical books in the Old Testament, I believe that the Holy Spirit has placed this book within the Bible for more than historical benefit. He has placed within the characters and story line, key elements and pictures that teach us today about our relationship with the true Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
