In the book of Job we see Job struggle with understanding God’s justice as he suffers and responds to the criticisms of his friends. Job’s friend, Bildad, has no category for innocent suffering in his view of God’s justice, and Job seems to overshadow God’s justice with his view of God’s sovereignty which makes God unsympathetic to Job’s plight. Both of these approaches do not provide the answers Job needs. As we struggle with God’s justice, and as we help others who struggle, we want to be able to avoid both of these errors.
Here are the notes from Sunday: Job 8-9 Notes.
