Scholars suggest that the Book of Job has produced more literature than any other Biblical texts except Psalms. Augustine believed Job to be the supreme illustration of God’s grace. The timeliness & relevance of Job is found in the major themes. The book (1) unveils the Sovereignty of God; (2) reveals the unseen spiritual battle between God & evil that we are called to encounter and participate in daily; (3) refutes the theological premise that God will always bless the righteous with prosperity while poverty & suffering are the result of unrighteousness; and (4) warrants the intercessory power of the prayer of the righteous man while illustrating what authentic, raw communication with God resembles in the midst of suffering.
Our lectureship theme is best summarized by Job himself. “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last, He will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh, I shall see God” (19:25-27). The pursuit of the Redeemer, Jesus Christ, is the only means to enduring suffering and encountering hope in the resurrection we must all confront.
