While most of us will never suffer to the extent that Job did, his story is included in Scripture to help us understand…
- God’s purposes in human trials & suffering and how they relate to our faith
- Our human response to extreme suffering – sometimes involving despair & depression
- How wrong explanations of trials (Job’s friends) offer little help and can bring greater injury to the one suffering
- How God brings to Job a greater perspective of Himself to reassure him in his trials – is this possible for us as well?
This four-week study will be an exposition of the Old Testament story of Job, including application, questions & interaction.
