A Bigger Story
Play episode · 29 min

The Book of Ruth ends with what, to our modern ears, sounds like a boring anti-climax: a list of names we can’t pronounce in a family tree we don’t understand. But when we read through the lens of an original reader and remember what we know about ancient cultures, we find that the author of Ruth makes a meaningful point with this list of names: God is writing a bigger story than you or I could imagine. How will you be a part of God’s cosmic story?
