Editorial Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to vividly depict the works of scripture. He speaks in a pleasant, friendly voice but with authority, frequently incorporating contemporary references. The programs are a lively combination of a sermon and college lecture.

In this episode, Dr. Creasy discusses Yet We Suffer (Job 1: 1-3: 26).

Publisher's Summary

At the beginning of our journey through the Bible, I noted that our study is built on four foundational principles: 1) the Bible is rooted in geography; 2) the Bible emerges from history; 3) the Bible—in its final finished form—is a unified literary work; and 4) the Bible is the Word of God. As a unified literary work, the Christian Bible is structured as a linear narrative, with recapitulations throughout. The linear narrative of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament) begins with Genesis and ends with Esther. Job is a recapitulation back to the time of Abraham; Psalms is a recapitulation to the time of David; Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs are a recapitulation to the time of Solomon; and the prophets are a recapitulation to the time of the kings. When we read Genesis through Esther, a clear lesson emerges: “If we do what God says, all will go well; if we don’t, it won’t.” And then we turn the page to Job. The story of Job is set during the time of Abraham—the beginning of our story. Here we read that Job “was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil…. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East” (Job 1: 1; 3). Job has done everything God asks; yet his life is a disaster! Placed after Esther, Job calls into question everything we have learned about God in the previous books.
