Job: From Tragedy To Triumph – Job’s Miserable Comforters

Four friends of Job, Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar and Eluid hear of the catastrophe that had befallen Job, and set out to visit him with intentions of sympathizing and comforting. Instead, they end up accusing, criticizing and condemning. Job calls them ‘miserable comforters’. Author and Bible teacher, Charles Price, gives us insight into the explanations for Job’s suffering as given by his first two friends, Eliphaz and Bildad. From it, we learn what not to assume as to why we are suffering, and what not to say or presume when comforting others in their suffering.
