Job: The Wisdom of the Cross

Job can be an intimidating book. It deals with why a good God would allow an innocent man to suffer. It is long. Really long! And much of it is poetry.
In 2021 our world is wrestling with questions of suffering. The questions being asked in Job aren’t academic. As we read Job together my prayer is that God will bring comfort to the afflicted. We see Job approaching suffering because he is a believer, and as a believer. Job foreshadows Jesus both in his blamelessness and in his perseverance through undeserved suffering.
A helpful book to read is “Job: The Wisdom of the Cross” by Christopher Ash.
