It might be interesting to some that Ruth was not a Jew, but rather a Moabite (a modern Palestinian?) through whom Matthew traces Jesus’ lineage. It is also interesting to me that Matthew also links Jesus’ lineage through Joseph, although the notion of immaculate conception would deny that lineage through Joseph but would circumvent Joseph by an act of God. As I view it, it is an example of the inclusion of all in “God’s family,” who will be known, not by acclamation of “Father, Father,” but by their works.
