We wrapped up the story of Abraham and Isaac today by creating mind maps that explore the characterization of both God and Abraham. Was it right for God to test Abraham’s faith in such a cruel way? Why would God need to test him anyway? God testing man is a common idea that we see throughout the Old Testament. Our next piece, The Book of Job, is no exception. In this selection, God and Satan square off to test the faith of a man named Job.
For homework, please read The Book of Job. When you finish, please do a blog post that adresses the following question: How is this story similar than other stories we’ve read in the Old Testament? How is it different? Your blog post should be 300-400 words and should have an photo that was found on Creative Commons.
