Quick Intro to Job

Job answers the question, “why do people who are faithful to God suffer?” Job was one of the most pious, integrous and dignified worshippers of God. He was respected by young and old and very kind. But Satan came to God and asked him how Job would respond if things in his life were taken away from him. So his possessions, children and his integrity were removed. Job’s three friends tried their best to tell Job that the calamities were because he must have done something wrong. Job disagrees. In the end God appears to Job and Job realizes that before he had only heard of God, but now He has seen Him. The reason for Job’s suffering was not because he had done something wrong, but so that Job would see God and not just hear about Him. In them Job gained God.
