Job's Happy Heavenly Ending

Job’s Happy Heavenly Ending

Job begins and ends after the pattern that Jesus speaks of, that the Old Testament anticipates him in his suffering and in his glory. We saw the sufferings anticipated in the first two chapters and throughout the book, and now comes the glory as the Lord restores the fortunes as Job returns out from under the curse.

Job: the Causeless Cursebearer

Job is not about you. Job is not about me. Job is about Jesus. So when we come to this book we need to say, “Show me Jesus.” It is about Jesus and his righteousness, Jesus and his curse-bearing, Jesus and his defeat of the devil, Jesus and his acquisition of glory. That’s what Job is all about.
