On this DVD-ROM: RUTH AND NAOMI Begins with the story of Naomi departing Israel for Moab because there was a famine in Israel. In Moab however, her husband dies. Her two sons eventually marry Moabite girls. But Naomi’s sorrow increases when her two sons die and she is left destitute with only her two daughters-in-law. Naomi returns home to Israel, and although she encourages both her daughters-in-law to remain in Moab and find new husbands, Ruth is determined to go to Israel with Naomi to look after her. She proclaimed, “Your God will be my God.” All the emotion and drama of this beautiful story are portrayed in these stunning graphics. RUTH AND BOAZ This second part of the story of Ruth continues as she arrives in Bethlehem, Naomi’s home town. She finds herself gleaning in the fields of a man called Boaz who is a near-kinsman to Naomi. Boaz hears about the faithfulness of Ruth to Naomi, and her care of Naomi. In turn, Boaz orders his workers to leave handfuls on purpose for Ruth to glean. Boaz is an older unmarried man. Will this beautiful young widow, a Moabite woman have any interest in him? So unfolds one of the most beautiful love stories in all the world. Ruth ends up marrying Boaz, joining the commonwealth of Israel and is the great-grandmother of David and thus an ancestor of the Lord Jesus as recorded in Matthew’s Gospel. MARY AND MARTHA Mary and Martha are two typical sisters who did not agree on what was important. Martha was busying herself around the home and was much cumbered preparing supper, she became jealous of her sister who was simply sitting at the feet of the Lord Jesus listening to him. Eventually, Martha in exasperation accuses her sister before the Lord, but Martha is gently rebuked by the Lord Jesus explaining that Mary had chosen the good part which would not be taken away from her. This is a very human story, yet vital lessons can be learned from this situation. The Lord Jesus was not afraid to rebuke when necessary. WOMAN AT THE WELL A Samaritan woman comes to fill her water-pot and is met by a Jewish man—Jesus. Little did she know that the Lord Jesus had come specifically to speak with her. When he asks her for water she is taken aback because the Jews strictly have no dealings with Samaritans. Then, he explains to her that she should be asking him for water. As the conversation progresses the Lord Jesus asks her to go and call her husband. The Samaritan woman answers carefully: "I have no husband". The Lord then explains to her that her statement was correct because she has had five husbands previously and was now with a man who was not her husband. This intelligence on her situation combined with his gentleness and wisdom lead her to remark that she knew that the Messiah (the Christ) would come and tell them all things.
