Ruth 1

A family from Bethlehem leaves and goes to Moab. Naomi’s husband and sons die. She returns to Bethlehem with Ruth her daughter-in-law.

  • When did the events of this book occur? What would that tell you about what “life” was like?
  • Though Naomi discounted it, why would she talk about her daughters-in-law marrying within her family?
  • Note verse 16, Ruth’s “confession of faith.” What is she saying here?
