Ruth and Naomi • One-woman Show

Ruth and Naomi • One-woman Show

by Myrth Elizabeth Burr


A Story of love filled with heartache, strife and drama. Many believe that Ruth gleaning in the fields for Naomi is the importance of this story. While this is true, I find of more importance is the fact that Ruth was teachable and listened to Naomi who said, “Ruth wouldst thou present thyself in marriage to Boaz that you might have children, raise up a family, and keep our name alive in Israel?” By so doing, Ruth became the great-grandmother of King David of the house of David, therefore the ancestral mother of Jesus Christ.
