Bible Project Reading: Week 22!
Here are the readings for this next week, with Day 1 beginning with today, May 28.
Here are a few thoughts from the Bible Project folks:
You’re almost through the book of Job, a formidable literary masterpiece. Ancient Hebrew poetry, especially on challenging topics like the ones covered in Job, is not easy to consume or digest. If you’re feeling a little lost, hang in there. God is about to speak up again, and he’ll provide an answer to this ongoing debate between Job and his friends. It’s important to remember the three questions on the line as you move into the final section of the book.
Is God just? Does God run the universe on the strict principle of justice? How is Job’s suffering to be explained?
The problem is that not all of these can be true at the same time, so how will God answer? It might surprise you.
