BOAZ AND RUTH – ‘THE ONE NEW MAN’
Two separate paintings become ONE.
Together Boaz and Ruth represent the ‘one new man’.
The olive tree that is set as the focal point in this painting represents the covenant G-d has made with His people.It is in this covenant that the two are made one.
"But if some of the branches were broken off, and you — a wild olive — were grafted in among them and have become equal sharers in the rich root of the olive tree, then don’t boast as if you were better than the branches! However, if you do boast, remember that you are not supporting the root, the root is supporting you. So you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” True, but so what? They were broken off because of their lack of trust. However, you keep your place only because of your trust. So don’t be arrogant; on the contrary, be terrified! For if G-d did not spare the natural branches, he certainly won’t spare you! So take a good look at G-d’s kindness and his severity: on the one hand, severity toward those who fell off; but, on the other hand, G-d’s kindness toward you — provided you maintain yourself in that kindness! Otherwise, you too will be cut off!"
In the background of the painting the story line of the book of Ruth unfolds.
