Commentary

The book of Job tells the story of a man who loses everything -- his wealth, his family, his health -- and wrestles with the question, "Why?". The book begins with a heavenly debate between God and Satan, moves through three cycles of earthly debates between Job and his friends, and concludes with a dramatic discussion between God and Job. In the end, Job acknowledges the sovereignty of God in his life and receives back more than he had before his trials.

Job was possibly the earliest book written in the Bible.
