Ruth – Week 4, Saturday

Saturday, October 15

Read Ruth 3

The scene that begins to unfold at the threshing floor (v 4 & 7) bares resemblance to Moab’s conception (Gen. 19:30-37).  Both account begin with a plan.  Both accounts have a sleeping man and a young woman approaching.  What else do you see?  Compare and contrast the scenes.  Why is the Ruth account a redemptive moment for the Moabite woman?
