Why does God allow us to suffer? Why do bad things happen to good people? The book of Job takes these questions head-on but may not give us the answers we want. The main answer Job does provide is that, in suffering, God is doing something beyond what our minds and logic can grasp. Ultimately, though, Job points us to Jesus who suffered for us and provides ultimate answers to our pain in his death and resurrection. Use this introduction video on the book of Job, which outlines the book's main theme and how it is fulfilled in Jesus, in your sermon, on social media, or in a small group setting.
