How do we collate 2 Timothy 3:16 with Job 1:8  ?


As there was no one like Job in all the earth [at that time]

A superhero/superhuman/..

Author comment was "This book is no longer relevant to me -  as I could never be like Job"

He was truly super spiritual and above human - I can no longer see the book of job as relating to me as a mere person..

Yes Job was clearly above me ..

Must've been on another level..

For satan to attack wow - must've  been a super hero

[must have had his life sorted

Wow how good How good Job must have been to attract satan's notice....

And how the Journey of the "certain samaritan" must have been activated..

Hi
The story of Job raises many questions why did God allow satan to test Job I think it was to show us what unshakeable faith is.
In spite of all his trials and tribulation he was still able to say these wonderful words.

.
 23  Oh that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book! note

 24  That they were graven with an iron pen and lead in the rock for ever!

 25  For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

 26  And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: note

 27  Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me     


This is faith.

Love and Peace
Dave

What he is really saying is that all Christians who achieve more than he does are not an example to him as they are more spiritual than he is.

It is such a chjildish attitude that I suggest stop reading anything of his.

Why does that make the book irrelevant?

Surely the point is that if even someone as "perfect" as Job (actually, Job wasn't perfect - he did offer sacrifices for his sins) could suffer terribly, then all the rest of us may suffer as well.
"God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ." (I Thessalonians 5:9)
