Job Listen Up Cover EditTHE BOOK OF JOB… ONE RESPONSE TO THE ANCIENT QUESTION, “WHY DO GOOD PEOPLE SUFFER?

Join Pastor Mark and the Adult Class on a journey through Job… considering the wager made between God and Satan, Job’s descent in the abyss of suffering, his anger and questions, his relationship with his wife and friends who seek to be helpful and ultimately his powerful confrontation with the living God.

Participants in the class will receive workbooks which will guide them through the six-week study. There are optional homework assignments each week which will lead those who have the time to invest into a richer understanding of the biblical text.

The study schedule is as follows…

Sunday, August 5        “A Tale of Two Jobs”                                              Job: Chapters 1-3

Sunday, August 12      “Job & His Friends”                                                Job Chapters 4-27

Sunday, August 19      “Wisdom in an Information Age”                            Job Chapter 28

Sunday, August 26       “Enter Elihu”                                                          Job Chapters 32-37

Sunday, September 2  “The Voice from the Whirlwind”                             Job Chapters 38-42

Sunday, September 9  “The Restoration”                                                  Job Chapter 42:7-17
