As an experiement, I read through the events surrounding Jesus’s final few hours with some dear friends from around the world.

Lockdown thoughts from Job 8:1-7

Day 14 of our nationwide lockdown. Hoping to keep my nose in the Bible while there’s time and energy. Job’s just responded to the unhelpful accusations of Eliphaz, and now friend #2 has a go.

Lockdown thoughts from Job 6:1-30

I posted most of this yesterday but it didn’t seem to upload – my bad. It’s Day 12 of 28. We’re in chapter 6, Job has just heard Eliphaz say to him: “God only punishes wicked people. Don’t despise His discipline of you now.” How does Job respond to these simplistic adages? Previously: 1:1-5 | 1:6-12 | 1:13-22 | 2:1-6 | 2:7-13 | 3:1-10 | 3:11-26 | 4:1-21 | 5:1-7 | 5:8-27 […]
