INTRODUCTORY COMMENTS:

 

And so we come to the conclusion of the Book of Ruth with this list of famous (and not so famous) men in the genealogy of David – and of Christ.

 

The LORD God is a God of the individual. His word contains thousands of the names of not only His people, but those of the world in general as well. He has known them and written down their names.

 

Please remember that the book is about Elimelech, Naomi, Ruth, Boaz and other members of this family. It is a wonderful story of the dedication and love that made up the lives of the people in it.

 

The other things we have had to say, along the way, have been by application – seeing into God's word the way in which it not only tells one story, but also how wonderfully He tells the bigger picture through symbolism and allusion (not illusion). All at one time He shows us His love of this family, His covenant people, how He deals with the wayward and then repentant heart, the preservation of the lineage of king David, and that of the Christ.

 

Because you can see the character of our God in these words we can also make application to the age of the Church and how He has made available for us if we would turn from a break in fellowship with him that confession restores us.

 

And finally, we can see His character as He calls us and brings us to Himself through redemption in His Son, Jesus, The Christ.
