“Redemption” is something that we often hear associated with God, but we can sometimes think of it in purely spiritual terms. Yet, in the majority of uses in the Old Testament, the word spoke about people practically and physically working to redeem one another. In this passage, Boaz sacrifices, takes ownership of the problem, and follows through. And in this, we see a picture of the God who gives everything to redeem his people, ultimately in the Lord Jesus.
