The story of Job is about human suffering. Most people think: if God is just He will reward the good and punish the evil. But Job, who is good, has to suffer severely. Job 1.1-12: How does the author explain this? Job 20: What explanation does Job's friend find for this suffering? Job 38, 39: How do these verses explain that Job's suffering does not contradict the concept of a just God?
