Ruth Ecclesiology and Esther Eschatology (Part II)

The books of Ruth and Esther describe real historic events, but may also be seen as parables with prophetic meaning. Ruth contains a message about the relationship between Israel and the Church. This is what we call "Ruth Ecclesiology." In a similar fashion, the book of Esther contains a message about the End Times. We call this: "Esther Eschatology."
