    Wow! On the question of evil, answered. We that are not well versed in Hebrew, have a new perspective. In the B’rit Hadashah Messiah tells us rebuke evil and it will flee and not to fear it. I am still wrestling with the testing and trials of Job. Is it a text for the posterity; succeeding or future generations collectively: Judgment of this age must be left to posterity. Deep contemplation is what I am left with. Thank you Job, Ira and Jono.

    I urge the listners 2 self-examine thier own “witnessing styles” in the light of Job’s 3 friends. I was 🙁 2 learn how many of thier bad attributes i have been guilty of! Since i have been mindful of this, i have gotten much more “traction” with my friends/family! Thank you 4 this invaluable resource. Ya bless you and keep u!

    Another masterful dialogue. Thank you so very much. But, may I disagree a tad.

    Did Job know God? God’s own testimony on the matter was that Job was faultlessly righteous. Can a person walk uprightly before God without knowing Him. I think not.

    Job’s testimony was that he was faultless (which corresponded with God’s testimony), and God abandoned him. He was right. Except for protecting his life God had abandoned him.

    Todah Ira – I am slowly getting my head wrapped around it 🙂

  6. Natalie says

    Job’s friends are ganging up on him and he gets a little defensive. He is, after all, only human.

  7. Krisi says

    I try going to Ira’s congregations website but I keep getting a “forbidden” error…is something wrong with his site? I was wanting to explore how he believes 🙂

    Krisi, we will be doing a special program on that very topic in the coming weeks. Stay tuned! 😉

    Todah you two for doing the “evil” insights, although I’m still trying to get my mind around it all, having been tainted by the church for years. Enjoy the Treasures in the Tanakah!!
