Job: Introduction

Ok, so many of you have heard of Job, he has a book in the bible called "Job" which is about the tests God gave him. This book has over 40 chapters, so I could make quite a long series about  him, but I'll make it as short as I can while hopefully teaching you something about Job.

In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job. This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. He had seven sons and three daughters, and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East. His sons used to take turns holding feasts in their homes, and they would invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. When a period of feasting had run its course, Job would send and have them purified. Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking, "Perhaps my children have sinned and cursed God in their hearts." This was Job's regular custom.
(Job 1:1-5)

Job is a very rightoues man, he does everything he can to please God.
