We shift, with Hebrews, from faith to holiness. Coming to recognize that Christ is the perfecter of our life and faith, we discuss our call to respond to the sanctifying work of Christ by allowing ourselves to be made holy.
In part 2 of 3 in Job, we look how Job and his friends respond to his suffering. How should we respond to suffering? When we suffer. When friends suffer. What does it mean to be faithful and to speak well in the midst of suffering?
We look at Jesus’ fasting and temptations out in the wilderness, and the significance of him resisting these particular temptations. Dostoevsky’s “The Grand Inquisitor” chapter of The Brothers Karamazov helps us out a bit.
