Ruth final Ruth final Presentation Transcript

  • The Book of Ruth
    He Qi, 2001
  • Brief as this book is, and simple as is its story, it is remarkably rich in examples of faith, patience, industry, and kindness, nor less so in indications of the care which God takes of those who put their trust in him.
    --Shavuot - PentecostHome Study website
  • --William Blake, 1795
  • -- Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld, 1828
  • Our Group Discussion
    At first, we wondered why this story was in the Bible. Then, we concentrated on the mechanics of the story. What characters orchestrated which events?
    “The assertive deeds of Naomi and Ruth are the driving force of the story.”
  • --Book of Ruth, Wordle.net, NLT
  • --James Tissot, 1896
  • -- Marc Chagall, 1960
  • Much of the pleasure of the story lies in the way all difficulties and chance events conspire to produce a happy ending, a lovely “human comedy.” All the worst forebodings of solitariness, starvation, and childlessness are quieted by the steady progress of the plot towards community, abundance, and fertility.
    -- Norman K. Gottwald
  • He Qi, 2001
