An Immigrant’s Courage

Ruth is a story of redeemers. Ruth teaches us that friendships can change the world (as with Boaz, the kinsman-redeemer), and that we can and must reach across spiritual and cultural barriers to do so (as with Ruth, the hidden redeemer). Both Boaz and Ruth point to Jesus, our true Redeemer. Once we realize that, we can ourselves reach across barriers to engage in spiritual friendships and be true disciples of Jesus. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on October 19, 1997. Series "Pointers to Christ - Directional Signs in History". Scripture: Ruth 4:13-17
