The Kingdom of Judah’s Ancient History (1960)

Synopsis: Across the centuries many legends have grown around the biblical story of Ruth. All of them begin in the Jews’ ancient land of Judah (today’s so-called “West Bank”) later known as The Kingdom of Judah under the reign of King David (circa 1040 - circa 970 B.C. - Before Christ).

Inspired by the scriptural tale. Moabitess priestess Ruth is drawn both to a Judean man and to his talk of a forgiving God. After tragedy strikes, she begins a new life in Bethlehem.

The book of Ruth describes an episode in the time of the Hebrew’s Judges. It gives a lively picture of ancient life, with its manners and customs. Ruth was a great-grandmother of King David, and so is in the earthly ancestry of Jesus Christ. » Read the biblical story of Ruth - written circa 1322 B.C. (Before Christ)
