Ruth: The Story is in the Names


By Sally Meredith

Women’s Bible study. The book of Ruth comes from the Old Testament. The story I have laid out will become clear as we contemplate the names in the story and what they mean. The story unfolds as the names unfold, ending with the last name which defines our ultimate Redeemer, Jesus Christ. This is a timeless story of love, redemption, tragedy and joy. The circumstances could be events of any era, any age, and any family.
