RUTH 4: Finding Refuge in Loyal Love

March 4, 2018 Speaker: Kyle Schwahn Series: Ruth

Scripture: Ruth 4:1–1:22

HOME GROUP DISCUSSION:

- What was the difference between the unnamed kinsman redeemer and Boaz as the kinsman redeemer?

- Kyle suggested the book of Ruth was presented to people of Israel during the Babylonian captivity, and is more about Naomi than it is Ruth. What would be the significance of Naomi's story to the captive Jews in exile?

- Why did the elders at the gate use the word "offspring" when referring to the child that would come from Ruth and Boaz' union?

- The book of Ruth ends with a genealogy. Why is that important?
