Book of Ruth is a romantic drama and love story on how God use people to carry out his divine agenda. Even non-believers carries God message, as depicted with Ruth, a Moabite woman (Gentile). “Historically, Ruth is the lynchpin of the covenant. Theologically, the story of Ruth and Boaz illustrates the biblical concept of redemption” (Ed Hindson and Elmer Towns, Illustrated Bible Survey: An Introduction, 2013, page 111). While the authorship of the Book of Ruth is anonymous, some experts’ thinks possibly it was written by Nathan. The love story centers during the era of 1020 to 1000 BC, and signifies a “Ray ...view middle of the document...

The next of kin (kinsman-redeemer) also refuse to accept, “I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I mar mine own inheritance: take thou my right of redemption on thee; for I cannot redeem it” (Ruth 4:6, ASV). As with many love story, Ruth and Boaz wed and beget a son name Obed. Thus perpetuating the Davidic and messianic lineage.
David story starts to unfold in 1 Samuel 17, “which begins by telling us the location of this event, the valley of Elah” (Ed Hindson, Courageous Faith: Life Lessons From Old Testament Heroes, 2003, page 151). While authorship of I and II Samuel is anonymous, scholars predicts the books was written by Nathan or Gad. David lived in the land of Israel, the town of Bethlehem, the youngest son of Jesse from 1040 BC- 970 BC. During the era of many wars Israel were having in maintain the promise land. Under King Saul reign, Israel had been in battle with the Philistines. The Philistines had kept King Saul under control for forty days, and, was being taunted by the Philistines main force, Goliath. Since King Saul was not God’s choice as a ruler of his chosen people, Saul were the people choice. A Benjaminite, a strapping tall man with not so God-like tendencies. “He was greedy, selfish, and jealous. His kingship was a failure, and his kingdom was about to collapse. The Promise was in jeopardy as well” (E. Hindson, et.al. page 152).
Jesse, David’s father being a concerned parent, sent his 17-year old son to check on the welfare of his three oldest sons. As David reached the camp, the soldiers were preparing to go into battle with the Philistines. David went along with the army, as they marched and sang the war cry. Just as David found his brothers, he also discovered Goliath. David thought, he is huge, no wonder they fled from him. “The bible describes the Philistine “giant” as being over nine feet tall. Proportionately, he would have weighed at least 600 pounds. He was huge” (E. Hindson, et.al. page 153)! Goliath had been taunting the Israelites for forty days and nights, “I defy the ranks of Israel. Give me a man and let us fight each other” (1 Samuel 17:10). The challenge was issued eighty times, no Israelite stepped forward. On the forty-first morning and the eighty-first challenge (David had only heard it once). “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God” (1 Samuel 17:26)?
As the final curtain falls of the story of David, so does Goliath with one of 5 stones David had selected from a creek bed. David rose that morning a boy, when the sun set, he was Israel hero. His many escapes from the wrath of Saul, with the aid of Saul’s son, Johnathan. Further attributes that God’s hands were upon David for something greater than he had...
