There is no greater Love Story in the holy writ than this – a beautiful story of loyalty and royalty with special symbolism (typology) of salvation through Jesus.
A famine forced Elimelech and his family to move to a Gentile land (and for their sons to marry Gentile brides).
After losing everything, Ruth and Naomi return to the Promised Land barren widows.
While working in the field, Ruth was noticed by a wealthy man: Boaz.
Once he heard her story and knew that he could do something about it – he ‘redeemed’ her as his own wife.
