Job – The First Encounter between God and Satan Summary There is no easy answer, and, of course, the book does not mean to be an historical account. The book allows hard issues to emerge because they do in human experience. Allowing the questions is necessary in order to be able to address them.

Satan has put God in a tough place. How does one resist the devil. By drawing close to God. Job was not under this New Testament promise like us, and in fact, since Job’s story happened before Moses received the law, Job wasn’t under the Old Testament, did not have the Holy Spirit, nor did Job have any scripture to guide him because his story happened before Moses wrote.

Job Loses His Health 1 On another day the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them to present himself before Him.

2 “Where have you come from?” said the LORD to Satan. “From roaming through the earth,” he replied, “and from walking back and forth in it.” 3 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job. Job (/ dʒ oʊ b / JOHB; Hebrew: אִיּוֹב ‎ – ʾIyyōḇ; Greek: Ἰώβ – Iṓb) is the central figure of the Book of Job in the rabbinical literature, Job is called one of the prophets of the Gentiles.

In Islam, Job (Arabic: أيّوب ‎, romanized: Ayyūb) is also considered a prophet. Job is presented as a good and prosperous family man who is beset by Satan with. The devil believes Job is only faithful to the Lord because it's profitable for him.

That his is a religion of expediency. If all the good things he enjoys were to be Job and the Devil book from him, Satan is convinced Job would turn his back on God in an instant.

This is an issue of great importance to us all. And it is the reason the book of Job is in the Bible. The Book of Job consists of a prose prologue and epilogue narrative framing poetic Job and the Devil book and monologues. It is common to view the narrative frame as the original core of the book, enlarged later by the poetic dialogues and discourses, and sections of the book such as the Elihu speeches and the wisdom poem of chapter 28 as late insertions, but recent trends have tended to concentrate on the.

The Book of Job in the Hebrew bible was crafted to address human suffering and why bad things happen to good people. In it, Satan is a member of God’s divine court who walks the earth looking for sin and reports back to God. Job is not an Israelite but is a Gentile from “the land of Uz,” perhaps a place in Edom.

The accuser” (Hebrew, ha-satan) is not Satan, the devil, but an angel whose job it is to identify people disloyal to God. The prose story (JobJob ) portrays the “patient” Job, but in the rest of the book Job is an outspoken rebel.

“There is no one on earth as faithful and good as he is. The book that gives us the most information about the devil in the Old Testament, however, is the book of Job. Job gives us insights into his character, his purposes, his tactics, and his goals. Job flesh out a basic doctrinal understanding of Satan.

God did not hand Job over to the devil; he saved his life. Then he blessed him superabundantly. And then he put Job’s story in the Bible so that we might not be unaware of the devil’s schemes. How not to read the Story of Job.

The devil wants you to think that Job was a blameless man that God struck down for no apparent reason. Job Context. 3 His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.

4 And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. IMO God would have restored everything to Job anyway because Job was one of his favorite people.

I think 1 and 2 would describe my belief except for the concept of God tormenting people. The torment in this account came from the devil. And before you can say it, no, God did not create the devil to be evil, the devil did that on his own.

Job was not a sinner before his sufferings as you want to rewrite the story Job. The story starts by saying that he was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil and the greatest man of the East.

“The devil knocked Job down, but God lifted him up. The devil sifted Peter, but God made him into an apostle”. The Bible story of Job, from the book of Job, is a powerful tale of testing the devotion and fortitude of the human will.

He said, "I am very much impressed by the fact that my distinguished colleague here regards as the highest authority the one who said, 'All that a man has will he give for his skin.' You will find that this saying comes from the Book of Job, and the one who utters it is the devil.

The book of Job introduces us to a man who, by God’s own admission, is blameless and upright and who suffers “for no reason” (Job ). Can such a thing happen in God’s good world. This is the theological and ethical question being explored in the poetic dialogues to follow in Job   Of course, there is a back-story to all of this – a backstory of which Job is never made aware.

Job repents of this awful view of God. Many of us need to do the same today. We have falsely attributed all manners of evil to the source of goodness Himself.

There are a lot of false accusations happening in this book. Job’s wife and friends falsely accuse him of being in the wrong. Job falsely accuses God of doing the wrong to him. Job was the wealthiest, most blessed man, maybe in the whole world.

He loves God very much and was faithful to follow His commands. At some point, Satan actually approaches God himself and basically asks God to put Job to the test. God was speakin. Satan as a Sentient Being. Satan appears as a proper being only twice in the whole of the Hebrew Bible, in the Book of Job and in the book of Zechariah (–2).In both of these instances, the term that appears is ha'satan, with ha being the definite article "the." This is meant to show that the terminology is referring to a being.

The Book of Job is a very interesting book in the Bible. Job is described as an upright man who follows God’s commands and is “blameless” in God’s eyes. The word “blameless” doesn’t mean sinless, but rather, that he had a good standing in the eyes of God and was repentant.

Another way of putting it is that Job walked with God. Job’s troubles are attributed to the work of ha-satan, that is, "the adversary," and not, as the English translations insist, Satan with capital word satan in Job could not be a name: in the Hebrew original it is always preceded by "ha," which is equivalent to the English word "the" (this would be equivalent to saying “the Bob”).Thus satan in Job is "adversary," just as it was in.

WE are told in the Bible (Job, i, 16)--"While he [Job] was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them, and I.

The rest of the book becomes Job’s indictment of God for doing such a thing to an innocent person and the (comic) responses of his peers to such an accusation. Job is a seeker after knowledge and wisdom just as much as Faust was. Job is one who learns through experience.

To understand the full impact of the book of Job the book must be read and understood as a whole. In fact, some scholars believe that Job requires and understanding of the book as a whole more than any other book of the Old Testament.

Whole chapters of the book are devoted to speeches by Job’s counselors. Then Job rejects their claims and advice. Job’s story invites us to consider what it means that God runs the world by wisdom, and how this truth can bring peace in dark times.
