The Story of Ruth has been treated only as a historical account of one of the ancestors in the line of Yahshua.   Ruth’s second husband, Boaz, was a Patriarch of that lineage.   Ruth and Boaz bore Obed, the father of Jesse, and grandfather of David.  Much speculation has been purveyed about Ruth’s racial ancestry.  Those who preach the gospel of race-mixing insist that Ruth was a non-Israelite.  A careful reading of the text proves otherwise, as Ruth is called the near kinswoman of Boaz.  (Ruth 3:12.)  Boaz’s exact words to her are, “And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman: howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I.”
