The book of Job wrestles with one of the biggest questions in life-why do bad things happen to good people? Many people in the time of the Old Testament believed that if God was happy with you would be materially blessed. If you were suffering, God must be upset at you. Most Old Testament books have this perspective to greater or lesser degrees. The book of Job was included in the Bible as a challenge to this perspective. Over the course of six weeks we will explore how the Book of Job speaks to the questions and problems we wrestle with in our daily lives. Job’s questions are often our questions. The study will be both on Zoom and in Room 3 (next to the fellowship hall) at the church facility. Each session will start at 7 PM and be about an hour long.
