Boaz asks Ruth to break bread with him. Our heavenly Father invites us into relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus (the Bread of Life). The story of Ruth and Boaz bears a similarity to the relationship of Myles and Katharine—Jew and gentile in the harvest field with the Lord.
Your people shall be my people
In this eight-program series, we follow the famous love story verse by verse, and watch as Israeli actors re-enact it in their native Hebrew language. Myles and Katharine Weiss, hosts of Zola Levitt Presents, explain the biblical characters’ journey from darkness to destiny, and Messianic Israeli tour guide Arie Bar David puts it in context by clarifying Israelite culture at the time of Ruth. Sasha and Anya Poberejny provide the uplifting music for this multi-layered story. The intrigue of the unusual commitments—between Naomi and her gentile daughter-in-law Ruth, and also between Ruth and the wealthy Jewish “Kinsman/Redeemer” Boaz—draws the audience into the ultimate prophetic tale: the eternal love story of the Bridegroom of Heaven and His bride, the Church, which includes all Believers, both Jews and gentiles. This series will enlarge your understanding of being grafted into the life of God’s own olive tree, the children of Abraham.
