The Jordan River is a significant geographical feature in the region and has played a crucial role in the history and narratives of the Israelites.

According to the biblical account, the Israelite spies had made a deal with Rahab, a harlot, who helped them escape.

These judges were appointed by God to deliver the Israelites from their enemies and to govern them. The book chronicles the cycle of the Israelites falling into sin, facing oppression from foreign nations, crying out to God for help, and then being delivered by a judge. Therefore, the title "Judges" accurately reflects the central theme and content of the book.

Samson, Gideon, and Deborah were all judges in Israel, known for their roles in delivering the Israelites from their enemies.

    Correct Answer
    D. Ruth's marriage to Boaz resulted in a child which provided the lineage for Christ
    Explanation
    The most significant thing about the Book of Ruth is that Ruth's marriage to Boaz resulted in a child which provided the lineage for Christ. This is significant because it shows how God's plan for salvation was fulfilled through the faithfulness and obedience of ordinary people like Ruth and Boaz. It also highlights the importance of family and lineage in biblical history, as the genealogy of Jesus is traced back to Ruth and Boaz. This connection between Ruth's story and the lineage of Christ emphasizes God's sovereignty and his ability to work through even the most unexpected circumstances to bring about his purposes.
