Ruth 3:15 – 4:12


As we attempt to cover Ruth 3:15 – 4:12 this next Monday, here are questions to facilitate your preparation:

1. What are some of the potential multiple meanings for the “six measures of barley” that Boaz gave Ruth in 3:15?

2. Why are ten elders of the city selected by Boaz to “sit down” in the city gate (4:2)?

3. How was it possible for Naomi to “sell the piece of land” which belonged to her deceased husband, Elimelech (4:3)?

4. What is significant about how Boaz identifies “Ruth the Moabitess” in 4:5?

5. Why did the nearer kinsman change his mind about redeeming Elimelech’s land (4:6)?

6. The city elders bless the actions of Boaz by invoking the memories of Rachel, Leah and Tamar (4:11-12) … why?

Dessert is served at 7 pm … the study starts shortly after that … see you Monday!
