Watched Lesson 1! So good to see you. I do have one question that I’ve been curious about…how is it concluded that Elimelech is sinful/running from God? I’ve read commentary before to that affect, but never quite “got it.” 🙂
Have a blessed day!
It is concluded that he is sinning and running from God because of the destination of where he runs. Moab is a place filled with pagan worship and considered unclean according to God’s standards. Instead of remaining in Bethlehem, Elimelech takes off removing himself from the people of God and surrounding himself with those who do not honor God. Does that help?
