I like the story of Ruth and Boaz, I like think there is a parallel
there of Jesus and and church (His people).
Boaz was Ruth’s kinsman redeemer. To confirm this hd gave his
sandal. Boaz bought Ruth back. She became his bride. For a woman
not to be covered and aided by a man in biblical times, it meant a life
of poverty, no sense of belonging, a life of hardship.
Jesus did the same for us, He bought us with a price, He redeemed us
with His blood, rather than a sandal. We are His redeemed individually and
also collectively as the church - His bride.
We were lost now we are found. We were not covered, now we are covered
by the blood of the lamb.
Ruth 4:1-10 NKJV
 Now Boaz went up to the gate and sat down there; and behold, the close
relative of whom Boaz had spoken came by. So Boaz said, "Come aside, friend, sit
down here." So he came aside and sat down.  And he took ten men of the
elders of the city, and said, "Sit down here." So they sat down.
 Then he said to the close relative, "Naomi, who has come back from the
country of Moab, sold the piece of land which belonged to our brother
Elimelech.  And I thought to inform you, saying, 'Buy it back in the presence
of the inhabitants and the elders of my people. If you will redeem it, redeem
it; but if you will not redeem it, then tell me, that I may know; for there is
no one but you to redeem it, and I am next after you.'" And he said, "I will redeem it."
 Then Boaz said, "On the day you buy the field from the hand of Naomi, you
must also buy it from Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of the dead, to perpetuate
the name of the dead through his inheritance."  And the close relative
said, "I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I ruin my own inheritance. You redeem
my right of redemption for yourself, for I cannot redeem it."
 Now this was the custom in former times in Israel concerning redeeming
and exchanging, to confirm anything: one man took off his sandal and gave
it to the other, and this was a confirmation in Israel.  Therefore the close
relative said to Boaz, "Buy it for yourself." So he took off his sandal
.  And Boaz said to the elders and all the people, "You are witnesses this
day that I have bought all that was Elimelech's, and all that was Chilion's
and Mahlon's, from the hand of Naomi.  Moreover, Ruth the Moabitess,
the widow of Mahlon, I have acquired as my wife, to perpetuate the name
of the dead through his inheritance, that the name of the dead may not be
cut off from among his brethren and from his position at the gate. You are
witnesses this day."
