Boaz immediately goes to the gate of the city to perform the work of a kinsman redeemer to redeem Naomi and Ruth. Boaz (as pointing us to the work of Christ) met all the requirements of a kinsman redeemer: proper relationship, willing, able, and willing and able to redeem all the possession. Jesus came into this world to redeem his bride from the penalty of sin paying the price of his own blood to save us.
