So the two of them went on
until they came to Bethlehem.
[Ruth 1:19]
******************************
"Lord?"

"Yes, child?"

"Are You in the Old Testament?"

[LAUGH.]
"In many places, child!"

"Uh, uh! I mean, the Lord JESUS?"

"Ah. Why do you ask, My precious?"

"Well, You know Jews don't
believe in Him, Lord. So, I
was tryin' to find somethin'
about Him, in THEIR part."

"I see.
Look, child."

"Well, in one Bible study
at church, they talked
some king named.......
Methuselah?"

[LAUGH.]
"You know that's not
his name, child!"

"Yeah, I know, Lord.
WHAT was his name........
Mechalzedek?"

"Look."

"Eh......hey, Lord;
it took me FOREVER
just to find the Book of RUTH!
Okay, okay!
Let's see.
(silence)
(lots of pages shuffling)
Nope! Can't FIND him, Lord!"

"Look again, My child."

"WHAT was his NAME:
Mechalzidek?
King McCalzadek?
McCalezak?
King MacKailzek?
MacDonalds?"

[LAUGH.]
"Keep going, child.
Where do you first find him?"

"Wasn't he with ABRAHAM?"

[NOD.]

"Alright, Lord.
Lemme' go back toward
Your Beginning part.
(more page shuffling)
AH!
I FOUND IT!
I FOUND it, LORD!
HERE it IS:

And Melchizedek king of Salem
brought out bread and wine;
he was priest of God Most High.
and he blessed him and said,
Blessed be Abram by
God Most High,
maker of heaven and earth......
And Abram gave him
a tenth of everything.
[Genesis 14:18-20]

I don't know, Lord.
I was brought up Jewish,
and I never heard of this guy."

"It is a mystery, child."

"What, Lord: that I was brought
up JEWISH,
or that I never heard of
King Malchazidechelah?"

[LAUGH.]
"Perhaps both, child!"

"Well, anyway.....I was surprised
about Bethlehem, Lord."

"What about it, My child."

"Well, that it's even
mentioned in the Jewish Part:
I mean, the O.T."

"That it is, child.
That it is."
********************************
So Boaz took Ruth
and she became his wife.......
Now these are the descendants
of Perez......Salmon of Boaz,
Boaz of Obed,
Obed of Jesse,
and Jesse of David.
[Ruth 4:13-22]
