The second half answers a number of questions including:

  1. Did Mary and Joseph have children after Jesus?

  4. Christian executioners and forgiveness

Questions2

Our entire study tonight answered submitted questions including:

  1. Why do we wish the holy spirit to the priest in the Mass and not to us?
  2. Why do priests not marry?
  3. Was Jesus married?
  4. Why are some Christians allowed to divorce and remarry while others are not?

Thus there is no handout.

Most questions were asked from a Catholic perspective but we have attempted to shape the answers to be relevant to all.

Foundations of Bible Study: Distorted Relationships - Job, the Disciplined Man Who Did the Right Things

Foundations of Bible Study: Distorted Relationships - Job, the Disciplined Man Who Did the Right Things

Our study on Job continues with an exploration of the words of Elihu and his taking Job to task for questioning God“s justice.  God afflicts Job because He loves Job and God blesses Job because He loves him.  Every dimension of God“s relationship with us is clothed in His love for us.
