It is tradition to read the book of Ruth on Shavuot which is the last spring biblical holiday celebrated 50 days after the day of First Fruits.
The story in the Book of Ruth takes place during the harvest season, which is when Shavuot is celebrated. It tells the story of a gentile woman named Ruth who was very loyal to her family and followed her mother-in-law, Naomi, to a new land and a new idenity. There, she met a man named Boaz who showed her kindness and eventually they got married.
Ruth teaches a lesson about a gentile's redemption through Messiah. Just as Ruth purposed in her heart to identify herself as an Israelite eventhough she was a gentile, we today can make the same choice through Messiah. Boaz redeemed Ruth and gave her a covering through a marriage covenant, just as Messiah redeems us as the "bride of Messiah".
