Sample text

In short, ''foreigners" who reside in Israel have most of the same rights and responsibilities as citizens (16:9–12; 24:14–15).  Thus, the "devotion" of the Canaanites and the exclusivism of Deuteronomy is religious rather than ethnic in motivation.  So it will be instructive to consider the setting of the Deuteronomistic History before we move to a survey of those instances.  The first was the division of the united kingdom following Solomon into the two nations of Israel and Judah.  But an even greater threat was the gods, like Baal, who were at home in Canaan and closely tied people's thinking to the cycles that brought fertility to land and animals.

Twenty or so were injured, four were dead—Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley.  This was one of the strains of exclusivism that were present in ancient Israel, in spite of the lessons about God's universal love in Genesis. Page 24 Our task will be to try to set it in its historical, cultural, and literary context.  In his speeches he tells the people how they are to take the land and then live in it according to the law that they have received from God.  Then, both here and in subsequent chapters, we will explore the responses to it within the Bible itself.

Naomi does not make any more effort to persuade Ruth to stay behind, because her determination is plain (1:18).  She does not explain why, only that she left full but has returned empty (1:21).  At any rate, his Page 45 servants point out what a hard worker Ruth is, noting that she has been in the field all day from early morning (2:7).  Boaz recognizes the extraordinary unselfishness of Ruth's leaving her family and homeland for a foreign country, all out of love for Naomi (2:11).  She advises Ruth to accept Boaz's hospitality and remain with his harvesters for the remainder of the season (2:21–22), which she does (2:23).
