This week on No Falling Word, our series through the book of Ruth will conclude with none other than a traditional, happy ending! But this story is more than just fairytale material. It’s an historic account with global ramifications, and something to teach us about the mystery of the Gospel.
Although no tribe is named after him, and the Messiah is not descended from him, Joseph nonetheless occupies a crucial role in the Bible's drama of redemption. Ultimately Joseph's story is about God's intention to save, not just Joseph's family, but bringing through his brother Judah's family tree the savior of the world.
Jesus taught us that the key to unlocking the whole Bible is to see it as a book about Himself. Every story more than whispers His name. It teaches us not only how to develop our moral character but also points to understanding the nature of Jesus- and what He came to do.
