After studying and researching BOAZ a year ago, so much was brought to light regarding his role and how we reference him in Christiandom.
There’s much misunderstanding to the definition, biblical reference and symbolism around his life and purpose and meaning.
My hope is that after reading this there’s more clarity on the matter.
BOAZ- defined as “swiftness”.
Actually means, “strength is within him”. Scripture References:
Ruth 2:1, 2:5, 2:9, 2:11-12, 3:10, 3:11, 3:12-13, 3:15, 3:18, 4:1-6, and 4:9. • BOAZ is a worthy man who knows the Lord. • BOAZ has a good reputation. He has proven himself to be a man of Godly character and worth through his actions and behavior. • BOAZ has a solid relationship with the Lord, which is of great importance to a woman of worth and substance, so that they are equally yoked. • BOAZ is a protector.
