Gleanings from Ruth-The Kinsman Redeemer

Gleanings from Ruth-The Kinsman Redeemer

Passage: Ruth 2:8-23

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: Gleanings from Ruth

In the first few paragraphs of the Book of Ruth, all the men die. The story becomes the story of three, and then two widows and their struggle to rebuild their shattered lives. And then Ruth means Boaz, a man whom God is preparing to be a Kinsman-Redeemer for Ruth and Naomi. Hope is beginning to reemerge and we are reminded that God sees our struggles and delights in restoring joy. Boaz also provides a compelling portrait of Jesus, the ultimate Kinsman-Redeemer for all of us.
