The Book of Ruth has much depth, it's not only about Ruth and Boaz, but a picture of Jesus Christ.
Scripture interprets scripture.
The OT is a picture of everything that was to be fulfilled by the New Covenant, Jesus Christ.

Bob, Thats the way I see it also! Ruth is in Love with Boaz her husband, And Boaz is in Love with Ruth his wife. The greatest love story of the Bible in my opinion. Next to Song of Solomon of course. But I could not express it any better than you have.

has anyone else got a opinion on this?

That's a really interesting interpretation of the Book of Ruth, 'jack'.
One I do not agree with, actually.
For someone who rants and raves about 'Sola', that was very literal and quite sola.

Ruth Marries Boaz
Ruth 3:1-18, 4:1-22
Ruth - we see the great blessings of the Lord on both her and on Naomi. Naomi will find blessing through her daughterinlaw, Ruth. Ruth will find blessing through Boaz. He (a picture of Christ) is a kinsman of Naomi (a picture of Israel). He redeems Ruth (a type of Gentile believers) by purchasing her as His bride.

Naomi, who lost the blessing, is finally brought back into a time of blessing through the union of Boaz and Ruth. God is so good.

When Ruth came to trust God (Ruth 1:16, 2:12). Not that bad things could not happen, but that good would be the final result. Ruth, what a great book of trust in God.

Amazing how some interpret placing your trust in God as a trick.

**Read the story of RUTH in the Bible.**

Does ANYONE here read the Bible in context of itself and customs of the time?

The Book of Ruth is not a good advertisement for marriage.

In chapter 1, the words "wither thou goest..." were said by one WOMAN to another WOMAN, and it's about REJECTING heterosexual marriage and finding a husband.

And it's obvious that by "sleeping at Boaz's 'feet'" that she was trying to compromise him, tricking him into marrying her.

This is only a fraction of the reason to get married. Get Gods choice, then you can't lose. Do not trust in your own choice. Read the story of RUTH in the Bible.

Yes. In the Bible, Jesus said that celibacy was only for those prepared to receive it. And St. Paul said that it was better to marry than to burn, and recommended marriage as an antidote to fornication in 1 Cor 7.

Jamea, Maternal instincts are natural ,stronger in some than others, if this is your feeling then look around for a lifelong mate!
---1st_cliff on 11/22/07

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Do you believe God's Word is truth, then practice it. Either God gives us strength to resist temptation, or He is a liar.
