Special Blessings, The Story of Ruth Lesson 5 (Kinsman Redeemer)

Dec 5 and Dec 12, 2021

Last week, we left the story and Boaz and Ruth were waiting out the long night before they could see what the future had in store for them. Ruth had gone to the threshing floor and lay at the feet of Boaz and had pretty much laid out her heart to him in hopes that he would accept her. She needed him to step in and redeem back what widowhood had stolen from her. She needed her kinsman redeemer because The Law required it!

Special Blessings, The Story of Ruth Lesson 5 (Kinsman Redeemer)

Qualifications of a Kinsman Redeemer:

1. He had to be near of kin
2. He had to be able to redeem
3. He had to be willing to redeem

Chanukkah, by CindyGirl


Life is hard and sometimes we fall but God is faithful and willing to forgive us when we go to Him earnestly in repentance. Today we will be studying what it means to rededicate ourselves unto the LORD. I pray you will be encouraged and blessed as we venture into God’s word together. God Bless you all.


The Temple is so important to the Jewish people because it was the symbol of God’s presence and it was the place set apart for worship and prayer to HIM.  It was everything to them.  The Temple was the spiritual center of the whole nation because GOD’S Spirit dwelt there.

If you will notice in the scriptures we just read, it states that they dedicated the Temple unto the LORD.  That word Dedicate in the Hebrew is Chanuk.  We all have seen this word before in Chanukkah or Hanukkah.  Chanukkah is celebrated by the Jewish people in the month of Kislev on the Jewish calendar which usually happens on our calendar in the month of December. 

During the period between when the old days ended and new testament days began, there were a number of rulers that oppressed the Jewish People and Jerusalem…There were about 13 Monarchs that ruled from the area of Syria over a period of about two and a half  centuries all called Antiochus but there was a particular one who was the worst.  His name was Antiochus Epiphanes…Antiochus IV.  He too was a Syrian ruler who oppressed the Jewish people but Antiochus IV thought himself to be God and he wanted to be acknowledged as divine.  It was about the year 167 B.C., he came barreling into Jerusalem, slaughtered Jews and set up an idol of Zeus.  Being Greek, he worshipped Zeus and thus commanded everyone stop the worship of God and to begin Greek worship there in Jerusalem.  This specific ruler did some major things that were horrific to the Jewish people when he came into power.

  1. He exchanged Hebrew priest for Greek Priests in the temple.
  2. He forbid the offerings and sacrifices to GOD.
  3. He stopped the Sabbath Day.
  4. He stopped the circumcision of new born sons.
  5. He stopped the celebration of the Feasts.
  6. He sacrificed pigs on the alter to Zeus.
  7. He built alters and shrines to Zeus.
  8. He sent the Jewish People into hiding because he was out to kill them.
