At our Melbourne church I recently had the chance to explore the longest speech in the Book of Job and its implications.
Get audio-only here and an accompanying group study here.
1. Questions to ask:
How is Elihu’s speech different? … Why is Elihu’s speech ignored? … Why is Elihu’s speech so long? … Why doesn’t God appear right away? … How does Elihu’s speech relate to God’s speech?
2. Elihu’s tone (32:1-5; 32:10-20)
3. Elihu’s claims:
a) Job is wrong (34:5-15)
b) God is right (35:9 – 36:4)
c) God won’t appear (37:14 – 38:1)
4. Emmanuel, God with us
