Main Passages

Job 1:6-1220-22

Job 16:1-518-22

Job 40:1-5 42:7-9

“The story of Job confronts us with the question “Why do good people suffer?” And the story offers us insight into right and wrong ways to pursue the answer to this question. The suffering of Job points us forward to the ultimate answer to the problem of evil—the redemptive suffering of Jesus Christ and the promise of a world made new. And as Jesus’ followers, we seek to alleviate suffering as we walk alongside others.” – The Gospel Project

Theological Theme

God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, does not give us the answer to why we go through suffering, but He does give us Himself.

Christ Connection

In his time of suffering, Job yearned for a mediator—someone to stand between him and God. Jesus is the mediator who suffered, even though He had never sinned, in order to pay the price for human sin and to put an end to suffering on earth.

Missional Application

God, through His Holy Spirit, calls us to comfort people going through a time of suffering, not by answering every question but by assuring them of God’s great love.

“Jesus does not give recipes that show the way to God as other teachers of religion do. He is Himself the way” 
― Karl Barth
