Today we read one chapter of second Corinthians and the first three chapters of Job.
2 Corinthians 12, Paul describes his vision of paradise and his thorn in the flesh (“for when I am weak, then I am strong”.) The marks of an Apostle are signs, wonders and miracles, and Paul displays his love for the Church.
Job 1. This is the oldest book in the Bible and predates even the Pentateuch. It is written in old Aramaic. Job and his Family lived in in Uz, righteous before God. Satan attacked Job’s Character and as a result Job lost his property and his children.
Job 2. Satan Attacked Job’s Health, and then was visited by three friends, keeping him company for a week without saying a word.
Job 3. Job deplores his birth before his three friends, and they still keep quiet.
