The book of Job is one of the oldest stories in Sacred Scripture, and poses one of the oldest questions: Why do good people suffer? But this question is in fact the gateway to another larger question: What is God really like, and what is he up to in the midst of the things that seem hardest to understand.
In this study, we’ll put our minds together to contemplate these questions as we read and ponder the book of Job. And we’ll consider the different positions represented not only by the title character, but also by his wife, by his friends, and even by God himself, as he “comes out of hiding” to reveal himself to Job later in the book.
Job is a suffering servant, and many if not all of us can relate, having suffered at various times ourselves as we try to serve God in the best way we know how. Job is also a sign of Christ—the book is presented to us in such a way that we as readers will draw this connection. And of course, as Christians, we hope that our lives, too, will be signs of Christ in a world of suffering.
Join us as we take ten weeks to explore these matters together.
