In Job 4-7 Eliphaz, the first of Job’s friends, comes to Job with a message about his horrendous suffering: you reap what you sow. Eliphaz believes that all personal suffering is a direct result of an individual’s sin. In Sunday’s sermon we saw that Eliphaz did come to Job with a partial truth: some suffering is a result of one’s foolish and sinful choices in life. However, this does not explain all suffering, and it definitely did not explain Job’s suffering. Through Eliphaz, Satan used half-truths and biblical language to tempt Job to deny the Lord. Job stands firm and continues to turn from the false message of his friends, to the Lord.
Here are the discussion questions from Sunday: Job 4-7 Notes.
