Jew and Gentile

God, in His great mercy, gave us pictures of the New Covenant long ago. In Ruth, Yahweh is already preparing the world for this great cosmic body He is creating. Through the gentleness and comfort of Boaz (2:13), Ruth is grafted in to the great covenantal family. Here we have the union of Jew and Gentile picturing to us God’s future for the peoples of earth. God always intended to bring Gentiles into His family and Ruth serves as a type of what happens in the New Covenant when Paul says: “There is no longer Jew or Gentile; the walls of partitions are broken down.”
