Who is THIS Man?

The narrator of Ruth introduces the readers to a new character in chapter 2. The introduction is intentionally prolonged to heighten its importance and stresses the character of the man called Boaz. We learn that Boaz is a mighty man of character who is a kinsman redeemer in Elimelech’s line. He is meticulously faithful to the Lord and his law. He protects and cares for Ruth and Naomi. The Lord providentially works through Boaz to bring about redemption for Naomi and Ruth; and also you and me. For through Boaz, we get David. And through the line of David, a Savior who is Christ the Lord!
