Scofield's Reference Notes


- Ruth

by C.I. Scofield

Book Introduction - Ruth

Ruth 1:1

This lovely story should be read in connection with the first half of Judges, as it presents a picture of life in Israel at that time.

Typically, the book may be taken as a foreview of the church (Ruth), as the Gentile bride of Christ, the Bethlehemite who is able to redeem. Ruth also gives a normal Christian experience: Ruth deciding, 1 Ruth serving, 2. Ruth resting, 3. Ruth rewarded, 4.

The events recorded in Ruth cover a period of 10 years (Ussher)
