Such A One
Is the Church in view as the man with no name in the accounting of Boaz and Ruth? Let's examine.
SUCH-A-ONE: CHURCH UNDER JUDGMENT?
Ru 4:1 Then went Boaz up to the gate, and sat him down there: and, behold, the kinsman of whom Boaz spake came by; unto whom he said, Ho, such a one! turn aside, sit down here. And he turned aside, and sat down.
Ru 3:12 And now it is true that I am thy near kinsman: howbeit there is a kinsman nearer than I.
Ru 3:13 Tarry this night, and it shall be in the morning, that if he will perform unto thee the part of a kinsman, well; let him do the kinsman’s part: but if he will not do the part of a kinsman to thee, then will I do the part of a kinsman to thee, as the LORD liveth: lie down until the morning.
Ru 4:6 And the kinsman said, I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I mar mine own inheritance: redeem thou my right to thyself; for I cannot redeem it.
Ru 4:8 Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe.
De 25:9 Then shall his brother’s wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother’s house.
De 25:10 And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed.

Ps 41:5 Mine enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?
Pr 10:7 The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.
SUCH-A-ONE: CHURCH REDEEMED?
2Co 12:3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
Heb 7:26 For such <5108> an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

The Bible appears to be equating such a one (man with no name) to the church. God first looks to IT to be the near kinsman redeemer. As a whole, it failed to do that and came under judgment in tribulation. The elect however are saved out of trouble as God Himself (Christ) performed the duty of the kinsman redeemer to them.
