Copy of The Story of Ruth
Transcript of Copy of The Story of Ruth
Elimelech, Naomi and their two sons went to live in Moab because of a famine in Bethlehem. The two sons got married there.
But Elimelech and both of his sons died in Moab, and Naomi, Ruth and Orpah were left as widows.
Go back to your family because you have no future with me. May the Lord show you kindness.
Orpah left, but Ruth stayed with Naomi and chose to follow her God.
Naomi returned to Bethlehem with Ruth following her. The barley harvest was just beginning.
In order to find food, Ruth found a field and picked up the leftover grain.
The field belonged to a man named Boaz.
His heart was captured the
moment he laid eyes on her.
Who's that pretty lady?
Stay here and work with my servant girls.
Naomi realized that the field was Boaz's, who was Elimelech's close relative. He provided Ruth with safety and kindness.
Keep working at Boaz's field. Then tonight, prepare yourself and lie at Boaz's feet on the threshing floor.
And Ruth did as she was told.
When Boaz woke up...
What are you doing here?!
Let's get married!
I agree! I'm flattered. I'm not that young, but you've still chosen me. Let the whole town know you are a woman of good character.
So Boaz met with ten town elders and asked to be married to Ruth.
But Boaz could not marry Ruth until he got permission from one of Elimelech's other relatives.
So Boaz and Ruth got married.
And so he went to get his permission.
The relative agreed for Boaz to marry Ruth, and they exchanged sandals to seal the deal.
After many years of happy marraige, Ruth and Boaz had kids. Their family line led to King David and later, Jesus.
Don't make me go. I will stay with you forever. Your people will be my people and your God will be my God.
The story of Ruth is important because it shows that although Jesus came FROM the Jews, he came FOR everyone. Ruth was not a Jew, but she was accepted into God's family and followed Him faithfully.
