Book of Ruth

Written in Palestine in its original form, as a record in Israel, between 1600-1500 B.C., but in its present form perhaps by Samuel between 1163-1123 B.C., or by Isaiah 743-683 B.C.  The Book of Ruth is a simple historical record of life in Israel during the judges, illustrating the law of kinsman redemption, recording the story of a Gentile woman in the genealogy of Jesus Christ, and updating the genealogy of David—from Pharez to David.
