Why is Naomi represented as the Church in the Book of Ruth?

Actually, Ruth is pictured as the Church, who marries Boaz (Jesus). Naomi pictures the Sarah Covenant which is over the Church, the Mother of us All

Below is an exerpt of our verse by verse study on Ruth (click on to see).

The name Elimelech means “God is King.” His wife’s name, Naomi, signifies “pleasantness,” “pleasant one.” Mahlon and Chilion were their two sons. Mahlon means “sickly,” “one having an infirmity,” and the thought of Chilion is “pining” or “wasting.” Both of the sons’ names suggest a process of illness, a sickly condition. In antitype they represent the Jewish people, the ten-tribe and the two-tribe kingdoms, who rejected Jesus. Jesus said, “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate” (Matt. 23:38).

Before the two sons died, they married two Moabite women, Ruth and Orpah. Ruth, whose name means “beauty,” is a representation of the Little Flock, specifically Gentile Christians.
