One of the most marked and hopeful signs of our time is the increasing attention given on all sides to the study of Holy Scripture. Those who believe and love the Bible, who have experienced its truth and power, can only rejoice at such an issue. They know that "the Word of God liveth and abideth for ever," that "not one tittle" of it "shall fail;" and that it is "able to make wise unto salvation, through faith which is in Christ Jesus." An excellent resource for Sunday-school teachers, the advanced scholar, and the Bible-class.
“Israel’s great king sprang from the union of Boaz and Ruth, which is symbolical of that between Israel and the Gentile world.” (Volume 3, Page 179)
“And so the story which began in poverty, famine, and exile leads up to the throne of David.” (Volume 3, Page 191)
“they must expect to remain for ever homeless and strangers” (Volume 3, Page 181)
“As Ruth went on her bitter errand, not knowing whither, Scripture puts it:—‘her hap happened the portion of field belonging to Boaz’—the same Divine ‘hap’ by which sleep fled from Ahasuerus on that decisive night; the same ‘hap’ by which so often, what to the careless onlooker seems a chance ‘occurrence,’ is sent to us from God directly.” (Volume 3, Page 183)
“the famine in Bethlehem, ‘the house of bread,’ evidently caused, as afterwards its removal, by the visitation of God” (Volume 3, Page 179)
