Ruth and Boaz (Doré, Gustave). Click image to enlarge.

“So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife” (Rth 4:13)

Both Luke and Matthew list Boaz as direct lineage of Jesus Christ. The relevance of this is made more distinct by Matthew who highlights that Boaz’ wife was Ruth. Ruth, the main character of the book which bears her name, was a Moabite (from the area located around Jordan, east of the Dead Sea); a Gentile precursor of our blessed redeemer.

This series attempts to answer the question, “Present a “Royal Line of Salvation” throughout the Old and New Testament. Start at Genesis 3:15 passing through Isaiah 9:6 and ending at John 3:16. Join together at least twenty verses outlining the salvation story.” by giving a chronological account of the genealogy of Christ recorded in Luke 3.
