Dears FUMC family,
Greeting in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
We just begun our journey that we read and meditate the book of Job. As you know that the book of Job is a part of the wisdom literature in the Bible. The wisdom literature is "A genre of ancient literature characterized by an emphasis on teaching its audience the things necessary to attain to virtue and obtain divine favor. This genre makes up a large portion of the Hebrew Bible. The biblical Wisdom literature comprises the books of Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes. Song of Songs is sometimes included in the list because of its affinity with Wisdom literature themes, as are several psalms. In the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox canons, two more books are included: Wisdom of Solomon and Sirach (Ecclesiasticus)" Stephen J. Bennett, “Wisdom Literature,” ed. John D. Barry et al., The Lexham Bible Dictionary (Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, 2016).
Each Sunday Worship, we are going to deal with these topic. I encourage all of you to read the book of Job everyday, so we can share our ideas after Sunday Worship. Pastor DH will preach based on the story of Job, and we will discuss what we learn when we have table fellowship. You are more than welcome to send your feedback to the office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
May the Spirit of God inspire us through the book of Job.
