When faced with the tragic loss of her husband to famine, Ruth of Moab chose to leave her family and all that was familiar to go to the land of her mother in law Naomi, who had also lost her husband and sons to the famine. Ruth courageously stepped out of the familiar and into the unknown to adopt Naomi's God and people. Upon their arrival in Bethlehem, Ruth broke many cultural codes and expectations to help provide for and redeem the honor of Naomi. Ruth was one of the women in the bloodline of Jesus.(Book of Ruth)
