Qualified and Willing Redeemer

Ruth 3:9-4:12

The Story
Before Ruth's redemption could be settled, she must find the kinsman redeemer.

According to Lev 25:25 and Deut 25:5-10, the kinsman redeemer
  • must be a near relative of the person redeemed
  • must be able to buy back the sold possession
  • must be willing to buy back the inheritance of his kinsman.
Boaz fulfilled all these requirements.

The LORD Jesus Christ also fulfilled the necessary requirements to qualify as our Redeemer
  • He has a relationship to us (Phil 2:5-8)
  • He has the proper resources (Heb 7:25, Eph 3:20)
  • He was willing to pay the price for our redemption (Mark 10:45, John 18:37).
The LORD Jesus Christ alone is qualified to be the Redeemer of mankind!

Remember Ruth, she found in Boaz a qualified and willing redeemer.
