A kinsman redeemer. A queen who protects her people from a murderous plot. A blameless man who suffers. The story of two lovers. They’re all in the Bible and you can learn about each one. Journey with Dr. Bill Bryan through the Book of Ruth to uncover the lineage of King David, the Book of Esther to behold God’s miraculous preservation of His people, and one of the most intriguing books of the Bible, Job. You’ll also explore the remainder of the Bible’s wisdom literature, including one of its most often overlooked treasures, Song of Solomon.
