comment Why did John make such a big deal about being a faster runner than Peter?
I'd always heard this was one way John was able to make it clear he was talking about himself without using his own name, like "the apostle Jesus loved," etc.

@JonEricson no, I totally forgot. I'll do so after I knock these dishes out :)

comment Did Ruth uncover Boaz' feet, or something else?
@swasheck it was an interesting theory mentioned to me by our "youth pastor" (I put it in quotes because the youth at our church are 5 teenage guys :)) ...I'm inclined to believe it myself, but it's obviously not "orthodox" or anything ;)

+1 gp, I personally think Naomi was hinting that Ruth have intercourse with Boaz (thus preserving the line) but Ruth, being the upright woman she was, rather cleverly interprets Naomi literally to avoid sinning.
