2 Corinthians 4:8 – We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair. In this study, we will focus on the internal, emotional issues that the apostles faced and examine how modern Christians like us today can still find comfort.
Job 1:21 – Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised. In this article, we will examine this verse from 2 angles – what are we and what is God; and build up an argument of how we can be like Job in our sufferings.
Colossians 1:24 – Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.

Job 1:3 – 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. In this study, we will look at how his possessions – and that he was the greatest man among all the East – meant anything in his subsequent reaction to his suffering.
Hebrews 12:11 – No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. In this study we will look at the connotations beyond discipline and grasp the promise embedded within the verse.
Luke 13:4 – Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? In this study we will look into three points that Jesus taught through the analogy of the Tower of Siloam.
Job 42:13 – And he also had seven sons and three daughters. At the end of his suffering, after having prayed for his friends, God gave him twice as much as he had before. We know that God blessed Job with exactly double the amount of cattle that he had lost, but what about his children?
