Timeline of Truth: Introduction to the Book of Ruth

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

We’re off and running! We have recommenced our Timeline of Truth with the next chronological book – the Book of Ruth. In this introductory lesson, we discuss who might have written the book, the timing of the writing of the book, and the timing of the events of the book. Additionally, we review the key theme of Ruth, other key purposes of Ruth, and, with help from Dr. Thomas Constable’s notes, highly four revelations, three values, and three major lessons found in Ruth. We end with 20 questions that we will seek to answer throughout our study of Ruth. You can be righteous and pure in evil times!
