In our October sermon series, we took a fresh look at the book of Job, and all of the mystery and emotion it explores.
It can be a difficult book to read and interpret, even for the most advanced Biblical scholars, but focusing on the book of Job can be an opportunity to embrace vivid imagery, human emotion, and the mysterious nature of a God who created the entire universe.
There is plenty of mystery to be found in this story, and many people suggest reading this book as a work of fiction to interpret its meaning. Notice God’s questions and how much they are connected to God’s creative power. The God who created the universe and all things in it is the same God who understands our pain, our brokenness, and our humanity.
There is mystery in that.
