The Book of Ruth… so far. Judges 3 The ten years Naomi was in Moab ended when Eglon and her two sons were killed. We know there was an year period of peace after Moabite oppression ended. Judges The famine in the land was because Israel was under a curse for the moral decay seen in Gibeah by the Benjaminites and for Idolatry.
The Moabite wives Ruth and Orpah influenced their Jewish husbands to worship their idol gods and adopt Moabite custom and allegiance. We know this because when Orpah left, Naomi said: The entire town of Jabesh-Gilead were annihilated in Judges Elimelech therefore probably suffered the same fate as the Jabesh-Gilead for the same reason, except it was God that killed him, not man. She realizes that the gods of Moab are false gods and sees the virtue of faith never lost in Naomi. Ruth would be about 90, Naomi would be about years old. Why the famine of Ruth 1: There are a whole series of passages that directly link a lack of rain, failed crops and famine to Israel worshipping idols and moral decay.
Notice that Elimelech, Naomi and their two sons had considerable farm land, but had to move to Moab where there was food. And a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to sojourn in the land of Moab with his wife and his two sons. The name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife, Naomi; and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehem in Judah. Now they entered the land of Moab and remained there. Then Elimelech, Naomi's husband, died; and she was left with her two sons.
They took for themselves Moabite women as wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. And they lived there about ten years. Then both Mahlon and Chilion also died, and the woman was bereft of her two children and her husband. Then she arose with her daughters-in-law that she might return from the land of Moab, for she had heard in the land of Moab that the LORD had visited His people in giving them food. Therefore, the ten years spent in Moab in book of Ruth must overlap a period of oppression and repentance during the period of the Judges.
Only Ehud fits this and is the only possibility, considering that Rabab the harlot was the mother of Boaz. Here are some of the passages that link Israel's apostasy and sin with famine and curse:. You will thus eat your food to the full and live securely in your land. I shall also eliminate harmful beasts from the land, and no sword will pass through your land.
I will appoint over you a sudden terror, consumption and fever that will waste away the eyes and cause the soul to pine away; also, you will sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies will eat it up. In the period between - BC we have three different stories that focus on Bethlehem:. Levite Jonathan, grandson of Moses is a Bethlehemite who moves north to accept a job with Micah in the hill country of Ephraim as the priest of a pagan shrine in rebellion to YHWH.
It is clear that these stories come as a shock and surprise to those who read the book of Ruth that was written by Solomon - BC and the book of Judges that was written in BC after the Assyrian captivity. The book of Ruth is not so much a beautiful love story between Ruth and Boaz, as much as it is a story of a prodigal family coming to repentance and God bringing them back from destruction to the center of spiritual importance.
Contact the author for comments, input or corrections. Chronology of the Flood outline. Go back and read it. I am still in favor of the whole waiting for Boaz. IDK where you get the idea that this picture victim bashes blames women for everything that happens to them… I think you kind of overshot on that one. Hannah, I agree with your thoughts. My prayer is God would lead us all to himself through this text and our understanding of his character would deepen.
This helped me see the book of Ruth in a whole new perspective. It also reminds me that I should be reading it again. I never looked at the story of Ruth as a love story. It did in fact seem like a woman who did what she needed to do to survive. He just seemed like more of a love story to me. She was going after what she wanted and it was all fueled by love and passion for her mother in law.
I think your wrong in your suggestion of what this story is all about which is the sovereignty of God and how the story foreshadows the future kinsmen redeemer…. Did well maggie,, i pray that God will inspire you each day to write more and that you will have countless of modern day ruth waiting to hear it.! A lot of people arguing with the author about what Ruth means. I have a few things to say in response. One could interpret this as allowing an elder who loves you to choose a match for you. Not that I have ever done this but this is essentially what I believe happened.
Ruth obeyed Naomi and a marriage to Boaz was the result. Others receive other facets via the Holy Spirit and I will never argue with the Holy Spirit as He reveals Himself to others — which brings me to my second point. The Word of God is a living Word of so many dimensions and God chooses to reveal each of those in different ways to different people by way of the Holy Spirit. God is not going to necessarily reveal every facet of a scripture to you personally and make your interpretation the whole complete definitive answer on scripture and not reveal anything different to anyone else ever and you are the only one who is right.
Some of you think this way and I encourage you to pray regarding pride. I have fallen into such traps before which is why I encourage you all to consider it a dangerous path — pride. I have had to repent of this many times and I see it in some of your responses.
I actively sought the first man who would marry me. He was an abuser and a cheater not known until after we married and he was also a Christian.
He loves us and provides abundantly! How old is Ruth here? Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: Menu Home Books About. More about Airelle Snyder. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: We think you have liked this presentation.
My earthly father was against me divorcing him and I held off a long time making a decision and continued to be mistreated because I wanted to please my Dad — also a Christian. Finally, the Holy Sporit spoke to me about grace and His vision for my life — a good life of grace and filled with love and children. So I filed for divorce. I met another man shortly after and he was raised in a Christian home but not practicing or even claiming to be Christian but I knew he was a good man and I loved him.
And so I prayed for him. I asked the Lord to do whatever it took to bring this man I to relationship with God even if it meant I would loose him.
The story of Ruth and Boaz is a great example of this. In my last post, I talked about how God's word never gives us a dating manual. In fact, it. Vivian Hyatt shows how the Old Testament marriage of Boaz and Ruth may also unhinge some of our accepted Christian dating practices.
I prayed this often. Over the next 8 years God brought him to live near me he was several states away we married, had two beautiful children and went through a horrible business partnership that ended in a bankruptcy and lawsuit — but now after all of this, my wonderful husband was brought to his knees in surrender to the Lord. He seeks the face of God — He trusts Him and we pray together as a family every day. There is no formula for how you will find the man God has for your life partner and the father of your children.
But if we all seek the face of God? Thank you for this blog, it was timely for this sister in Christ, with a disabled husband who longs for a kinsmen redeemer and is now finding it completely in the LORD.
About that half a year… Maggie Felisberto's Blog. To place things in there proper perspective, I only have this to say: In this case, it is relative to Jesus as our kinsman redeemer. Now this is not me saying this, but Jesus himself, who in John 5: The great discovery of the Bible is the discovery of Jesus, from Genesis to Revelation!!!
