Ruth was the daughter-in-law of Naomi, a woman from
Bethlehem who settled in Moab with her husband and two sons to escape a famine. Both Naomi’s husband and her two sons died. Ruth decided to follow her
mother-in-law, Naomi, and they settled in Bethlehem. In Bethlehem, Ruth
met Boaz, a family redeemer (someone who helps his close relatives if they were
in trouble) . Boaz bought back the land Naomi and Ruth had lost when their husbands died, and he married Ruth. They had a son named Obed, whose grandson would be King David. Jesus is our Redeemer who bought for us salvation
paying the price with His very own blood.
