Character Study: Ruth Part 3 – Ruth’s Rest 3 & 4

Juniors Class
Story Summary: 

Naomi knew that Boaz would be a great husband for Ruth, so she sent her back to visit him. (3:1-5)
 After Boaz went to sleep that night, Ruth came and laid down by his feet after she had uncovering them (this was a ceremonial act). Boaz was surprised when he saw Ruth, but he was encouraged by her virtue and wanted to help her. (3:6-11) Boaz informed Ruth’s closest relative of his right to buy Naomi’s land and marry Ruth. The relative was unable to do both, so he abandoned his rights to Boaz. (4:1-8)
 Boaz gladly filled the role of a kinsman-redeemer. All the people who were present, along with the elders of the city, acted as witnesses and requested God’s blessing on the marriage. (4:9-12)
