Ruth, Act 4: Unto Us A Child is Born

December 22, 2019 Speaker: Mike Sciarra Series: Ruth

Topic: Ruth Passage: Ruth 4:1–22

Discussion Questions:

  1. Read Psalm 49:7–9. How is the impossibility described solved in Jesus Christ who was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, and died in the place of lost sinners? (1 Peter 1:18–19.)
  2. Read Romans 3:21–31. How did the death of the Lord Jesus satisfy the law of God? What should be our response?
  3. In what ways was Ruth’s identity transformed and how does a person redeemed by Jesus have their identity changed? (2 Cor. 5:17)
  4. How does the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus on the cross give a Christian assurance? How would you counsel a friend who is unsure whether he or she is truly saved?
  5. What is the importance of the genealogy at the end of Ruth in terms of God’s redemptive plans? Discuss the tension (or balance) in your life as a servant of Jesus between taking action by faith and waiting for Him to carry out what He has planned.
