This free 2-part Bible study unpacks the story of Ruth to teach us about godly love and character.
THIS IS HOW THE FREE BIBLE STUDY ON RUTH BREAKS DOWN:
PART 1: RUTH’S LOVE STORY
When flipping through your Bible’s table of contents, you’ll find a love story on the list. It’s called Ruth. This book is interesting for a few reasons. First, Ruth is one of only two books named after women, making it particularly special in my eyes. Second, Ruth is not the name of a Jewish woman, which is a fascinating twist since the Old Testament records Jewish history. Today, we’ll dive into a brief study of this lovely little book filled with lessons of faith, cultural customs, love, and redemption.
Scripture: Ruth 3
PART 2: GOD’S LOVE STORY
It’s tragically easy to approach Scripture with a focus on ourselves. A “me, myself, and I” perspective is universal in modern times. We tend to say, “What can I learn about myself from these stories?” The ancient Hebrews of antiquity adopted a different approach. They asked: “What do the scriptures teach me about God?” Today, we will adopt this ancient Jewish perspective, looking upward rather than inward as we study the book of Ruth. We will see what this book, viewed through an ancient Hebrew lens, teaches us about God.
