Ruth & Naomi
This poster depicts the beautiful speech between the women at the end of Ruth chapter 1. Naomi is sadly begging her daughter-in-laws to leave her as she goes back to her people unsure of what her future will be like. Orpah leaves yet Ruth stubbornly remains. In this speech, the bond of trust between them is forged. We see the wisdom of Naomi and the integrity and unfailing trust of Ruth as she does exactly what Naomi tells her to do without question. We see the friendship between Ruth and Boaz, the man of honor develop with the help of the shrewd and wise Naomi. If you like a good romance novel or Rom-Coms then you will absolutely love the story of Ruth!
Mary Magdalene (John 20:15)
“Dry your tears, know that Christ Jesus lives!”
“Good Friday has been and gone and those who were devoted followers of Jesus are in emotional turmoil. The Sabbath had prevented the anointing of Jesus body with spices, and so Mary Magdalene came to the tomb where Jesus was buried on the Sunday to only find Jesus was not there. The immediate assumption to the cause behind the missing body was that someone must have taken him away. After Mary had got Peter and John to check it out for themselves, she found herself alone once again.
And then the ‘gardener’ appeared to a sobbing and crying Mary. Yet she wasn’t crying over the death of Christ but the fact that his body wasn’t there. Jesus’ body did not lay where it should have done, she had no way to honor him and was mortified by the potential desecration of his body. And yet this is glorious truth, it was the risen Lord Jesus who was speaking to her. There was no need for tears of sadness or fear, the death defeating Jesus now presents an opportunity to honor him, not to a dead corpse but a living glorified conqueror; not with spices but now with her whole life!”.
At the time of Jesus, women were considered as second class citizens so Mary’s testimony would have been largely discredited. And yet it was to a woman that God entrusted this first witness, not only giving evidence that this story was not an invention of man, but also demonstrating God’s equal regard for men and women alike.
