In this Bible study of the Book of Ruth Chapter 2 we see the provision of God. See what happens when Ruth meets Boaz her new relative and how he treats her.
We pray this Bible study of Ruth is a blessing to you.
1. Read the first seven verses of Ruth Chapter 2 to answer the following questions:
2. Why was Ruth so surprised to be treated with favor by Boaz?
3. What is the hardest part about your job? How do you react when doing a job that perhaps isn't to your full potential? What attitude should we have? (Read Colossians 3:23)
4. How was Ruth known to Boaz?
5. What can you determine about the character of Boaz from the reading of Ruth Chapter 2?
6. Have you ever struggled in helping someone because they are different from you?
7. What can you determine about the character of Ruth from reading the following verses from Ruth Chapter 2:
8. How do Ruth and Boaz both benefit from the law as prescribed in your reading of Leviticus 23:22 and Deuteronomy 24:19-21?
9. What are some sacrifices we can make for people? What's the biggest sacrifice you've ever made for someone?
10. Which verses from Ruth Chapter 2 indicate the character of the relationship between Naomi and Ruth and what was the nature of that relationship?
11. Consider how Boaz treated Ruth as a poor relative and the promise of God from the Scripture cited from Psalm 41 on the subject.
Would you (or do you) have the same attitude towards your relatives who are in need?
12. What does verse 23 of Ruth Chapter 2 and your review of Deuteronomy 16:9-12 tell you about the length of time Ruth worked in the fields?
13. How can this study of Ruth, Boaz, and Naomi help us in our relationships with our families?
14. In verse 17 Ruth gleaned enough grain to produce an ephah of barley. According to the Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary, an ephah, as a dry measurement, is estimated to have been about a half a bushel. How much did the grain weigh?
We pray this Ruth Chapter 2 Bible study has blessed you.
