About this Episode

This Bible study devotional covers Job 1-2. In this passage we’re introduced to an innocent man named Job and a character called “the Accuser.” He accuses Job of only serving God to get his blessings, and he accuses God of mismanaging his universe. So God allows the Accuser to put himself on trial in the suffering of Job.

As always, we are committed to showing you how Jesus fulfills these specific passages. In Job 1-3 we see that God is not transactional. And Jesus proves that true. He died while we were still sinners. Our good news is that God does not rule his universe according to strict transactions. He rules with lavish, loving, and self-giving wisdom.

We believe the only path to transformative Bible engagement is to see Jesus and his gospel wherever you are in the story. Jesus taught that he can be seen on every page of the Bible. Only by seeing the light of the Gospel in the face of Jesus can we be transformed into his image (2 Cor. 3:18, 4:6).

We want to help people engage with every corner of the Bible in a transformative way. To that end, we are making Christ-centered, devotional podcasts that cover every chapter of the Bible. They are brief field guides through every passage of scripture that explain each chapter within its context and how it reveals more about the good news of Jesus.

The Gospel changes things. Through our resources, we hope to create growing, deepening, and transforming Bible engagement that reshapes individuals, churches, and cultures with the Gospel. And we hope that you will join us in that mission.
