Job 29—31

Click or touch “Firestarter”
To listen to Nick read the one-minute introduction.

Job rebukes his companions, proclaiming the power of God. Strife and dissension continue to mount and pervade this book. Arguing rarely brings resolution, for each person stubbornly holds on to his or her position. Job and his so-called friends strive to grab after the last word that will silence the others; but it never comes.

The tension causes Job to become so defensive about his innocence, that he becomes self-righteous. While innocent of the charges leveled against him, Job fails to see that he needs to learn something about his predicament. This will come when Job finally explodes with anger in God’s presence, ironically disposing him to the Lord’s words and the beginnings of peace.

Live the tension of these readings. Prepare yourself to hear God’s Words in the response of God that comes in the final passage on Tuesday of Holy Week.
