Through the book of Job, we can begin to form an answer to the question of why we suffer still. What is being discussed by recounting the story of Job? In other words, what is the point of the book of Job? The theological message behind the book of Job is to show us why we suffer. Job 1:1b says “He was blameless—a man of complete integrity.

    • 5 Pages

    The Book of Job has often been seen as an explanation of why good people suffer.

Yet, his life still falls apart around him. However, there is a very interesting character involved that may seem surprising initially to the readers. Satan, an angel many associate with the Devil, is present in Heaven and even has a…

    Job understands/presents the problem of human knowledge about God as humans are incapable of actually understanding God in his full omniscience. Throughout the book of Job, the man Job continually asks God to meet with him in trial-esque setting. Job declares God unjust in His treatment towards him, and he wants to know why God has decided to punish him. In Job’s eyes he has done nothing to deserve this punishment. Eventually, God grants Job this “trial,” and the following quote is an excerpt…

    It was another moment of transition for Job in his constantly dynamic thinking, only to be interrupted by Bildad who failed even more miserably than before to make a meaningful contribution. Job pounced on Bildad’s brief allusion to God’s peace-making presence in the heavens (25:2). After a sarcastic jab about how helpful Bildad’s counsel was, Job unleashed a vibrant description of what God actually does in those heavenly realms. Some of his discourse described the visible heavenly realms – the…

    The above passages from “Hecuba” and The Book of Job exhibit moments of suffering induced by the forces of beings in positions of power and influence.

Of course, Hecuba and Job beg the question of “why”; why are they enduring such grief and suffering despite being relatively ‘good’ in a moral sense. The answer is never clear, if such an answer exists for these…
