Your feeling is not scripture so it does not mean squat...as I explained to Rachel it does not matter because women do not carry the gene to make a manchild the X chromosome is only present in men. this Ruth argument does not change anything concerning the messiah.Here is a map showing the location of the three tribes that received possession of the "Plains of Moab" from Moses [Numbers 32:1-5][Joshua 13:8-13].
After the Israelites fought King Sihon there were no more people left alive on the "Plains of Moab".....except the Israelites: [Deuteronomy 2:26-37]
Specially note verse 34. Note that the Kingdom of Moab is south of the Arnon River and is no where near the "Plains".....or as verse #1 in Ruth says:
And it cometh to pass, in the days of the judging of the judges, that there is a famine in the land, and there goeth a man from Beth-Lehem-Judah to sojourn in the fields of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.
The Plains begin at the northern tip of the Dead Sea as indicated on this map...................
.......and run up the Jordan River to the Sea Of Galilee.
It's my feeling that Ruth probably came from the tribe of Manasseh. This would tie in the Messianic genealogy to both Joseph and Judah. The scepter promise and the blessings from Jacob. [Genesis, Chapters 48 and 49]
Thanks again for starting this thread.
