The Book of Ruth

The Book of Ruth

In the opinion of all scholars, the Book of Ruth, although one of the shortest in the Bible, is a true masterpiece of world literature.

In Jewish tradition, it is directly related to the feast of Pentecost and is read on this occasion in the synagogue.

But since the discovery of the Qumran manuscripts, we have seen that at the time of Jesus and the apostles, this book was made a prophetic reading in relation to the coming of the Messiah and the end of time. The researchers realized that such a reading was not foreign to the authors of the New Testament and that in particular in the Gospel of John several passages indirectly allude to this book, after all, mysterious.
The Book of Ruth is one of a set of small books called "  the five rollers  Which underline in Judaism the prophetic character of five festivals on the occasion of which they are read.

Obviously, the prophetic dimension of these books generally escapes Christians and even specialists, because they are not trained in such reading. This book intends to fill this gap and awaken its readers to another dimension of the book than the one to which they are accustomed. We then discover that the book of Ruth is  a book of burning topicality which concerns our time and consequently concerns us directly.
