Description: Rick Deighton presents an overview of the book of Job, which zooms in on God’s questions to Job in Chapters 37-41 with special emphasis on God’s descriptions of behemoth and leviathan. From these chapters we can come to a clear understanding of the purpose for this oldest book in our Bible. Why did God allow Job to suffer so greatly? God never gave Job a direct answer to that question – but He did give Job powerful object lessons so he saw the answer and fell on his face before our Awesome God.
Speaker: Rick Deighton is a graduate of Boise Bible College, Boise, Idaho, and did post-graduate study at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri.
