Job

About the Book of Job

In this book we read the story of a man called Job. Job was a rich man. But Satan destroyed everything that he owned. Job was also a very good man. So he does not understand why such bad things have happened to him. He has three friends who try to give him answers. But their words do not help Job to feel happier. Another man tries to help. But Job does not think that he has really understood Job's problems either. At the end of the story, God speaks to Job. And Job, in the end, understands that he cannot know everything. Only God knows everything. Only God is completely powerful. But we, like Job, must trust God, even if very bad things happen in our lives.
