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.

Lessons
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.
