A kinsman is a relative, whether by blood or marriage. In the story of Ruth & her marriage to Boaz, Boaz was related to Naomi (Ruth's mother-in-law's) husband, Elimelech. Even though Ruth was a Moabitess, her first marriage to Mahlon (Elimelech's son) made her a relative to Boaz. And indeed, Boaz was not only a kinsman, but also a redeemer, in that he married Ruth so as to keep the blood-line intact. So, Boaz is seen as a Kinsman-Redeemer & is a picture of Christ as our Kinsman-Redeemer, having kept the Law of God perfectly & also paying the full price for our (Jew & Gentile's) sins giving us redemption because of his Humanity - His relationship to all mankind.
