Ruth | Introduction | Welcome

In this Introduction to Bible study and book of Ruth, we set the historical context of the book. The story of Ruth, Naomi and their families occurred during “the time when the Judges ruled Israel” (Ruth 1:1). We explore a brief history of Israel to that point and discuss the importance of the Promised Land. So often, when we understand the broader story of Scripture, we are able to better understand the smaller stories that we encounter and their significance in God’s grand plan of history.
