The book of Ruth
The book of Ruth is the Narrative of a love story, yet also has some important Genealogy. It was written about 1046-1035 B.C. Key personalities include Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz. Its purpose was to demonstrate the kind of love, and faithfulness that God desires for us. It shows the difference between what happens when a nation does not follow in obedience to the covenant of God (Judges), and when God’s people follow in faithfulness within the covenant (Ruth).
