Job, A Contemporary of Abraham (Job)

In this lesson we introduce Job who lived at the same time as Abraham.

(1) Job’s Awful Trials
Job’s motives for worshiping God had been challenged by Satan during a confrontation in the heavenlies. A sovereign God thereupon allows the five trials

(2) Job’s Non-supportive Wife and Fair Weather Friends
"Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? Curse God and die" (2:9).
Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar, Elihu – “Repent and turn back to God”

(3) Job’s Dialogues with his Glorious God
The suffering patriarch responds to his accusers in nine separate speeches. Suddenly from out of a whirlwind comes the mighty voice of God. The sullen Job is then subjected to a quiz.

(4) Job’s Bountiful Blessings
Job has been subjected to five fiery trials and has participated in five painful debates, but now he receives at the hand of God a tenfold blessing
