Week 12: Judges & Ruth

The book of Ruth has no miracles, while the book of Judges had gobs!

The book of Ruth has no villains, while the book of Judges are replete with them.

The book of Ruth is life as usual for a few individuals, while the book of Judges is the roller coaster ride of tribes and nations.

Chaos and confusion in one, and hesed* and love in the other.

But there are many lessons to be learned about ourselves, humanity and God in both of them.

Not a picture of Bethlehem, but it does display the beauty, fruitfulness and peacefulness of the book of Ruth!

*Finding the exact English equivalent is difficult, but the book of Ruth fully displays it! Lovingkindness, mercy, love, loyalty, goodness, favor, grace, etc.
