Preacher: Monty Simao, elder
Key Text: Job 4-7
Description: In chapter 4 the first of Job’s friends, Eliphaz, breaks the silence and provides council to Job. It is miserable council. Eliphaz believes that calamity only follows sin and so has already concluded that Job is in sin and calls for his repentance.
Job is discouraged by his friend and eventually turns his plead to God. In fact, Job is so discouraged that he requests God turn His gaze away from him and let him die in peace.
