Sunday 20th January – Unlikely women – #2 Ruth

Moray McKaySermons

Ruth is a star

Apart from Mary, Jesus’ mother, only four other women – unlikely women, as we might see them – are given a place of honour in the list of Jesus’ human forebears, in Matthew chapter one. We thought about Rahab of Jericho, in the first two of our series on the book of Joshua, back in the autumn. Today we look at another of the four women: a foreign migrant, a widow called Ruth.
