Boaz is a type of Christ, as the Kinsman redeemer.
We are so encouraged about our Redeemer Jesus Christ through looking at Boaz in his providing for Naomi and Ruth.
Intro: when I think of something being redeemed I think of a pawn shop. Someone has gotten into a financial fix, gives something of value to the pawn shop, and comes back later to buy back their stuff. They redeem it. Something they owned had been lost, now they come to buy it back, to redeem it.
