How the Women of Bethlehem Welcomed Ruth

How the Women of Bethlehem Welcomed Ruth

Did you see any women standing near the gate of Bethlehem when Ruth arrived? Who are these elusive women of Bethlehem, hiding within the text of the book of Ruth, and how did they come to embrace Ruth the Moabite into their community? Watch this fascinating collaboration with Samantha Corcoran from Geo-Logos to see the importance of women working together and how we can do the same today to build up our own communities.

Did you know, community is life-giving and biblical?!
We read about community in such verses as Romans 12:4-5 and Hebrews 10:24-25.
Check out what Ramsey Solutions shared about Community and how it is:
  • Encouraging

  • Essential to following Christ
Bonus Reason: Community is life giving and essential to following Christ. Scripture shows that we’re better together than we are alone (Romans 12:4-5).


It can be hard for some of us to commit to community, especially if we’re guarded or prefer solitude. Yet, community is God’s desire for us and is a sign of a mature faith. At the end of the day, we’re growing in relationship with Him!
