    Mark 3:3; Job 1:13-15



    Mark 3:3 King James Version (KJV)

    And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.

     

    Mark 3:3 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    Jesus told the man to stand up where everyone could see him.

    These are my thoughts.

     

    Jesus’ word has power but also has authority.

     

    Job 1:13-15 King James Version (KJV)

    13 And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:

    14 And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them:

    15 And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

     

    Job 1:13-15 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    Job's Children and Wealth Are Destroyed

     

    13 One day when Job's children were having a feast at the home of their oldest brother, 14 a messenger came running to Job. “We were plowing the fields with the oxen,” he said, “and the donkeys were in a nearby pasture. 15 Suddenly the Sabeans attacked and stole them all. They killed every one of your servants except me. I am the only one who escaped to tell you.”

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    13 They often had feasts but it shows they were doing this instead of reacting to what happened, it shows that they had comfort in life and lost  it due to their taking comfort if they were out their with the servants they may have been able to spare so.

     

     

     

    14 This messenger was a servant of Job spared so Job could have known what had happened. The number of oxen Job had was not numbered, but would have most likely been in the hundreds or even thousands. Job had 500 donkeys.

     

     

     

    15 This have taken many people to steal all these donkeys, So Job has a servant left that cared for the donkeys and worked with the oxen but there are no longer any donkeys or oxen. Sabeans were lived in the south west of the Arabian Peninsula. They were a group of idol and star worshipers. They are often viewed as a group of bandits that lived in the desert. They were also worked with trading, so it is likely they gave what Job had to others for money or something else rather than keeping it for them.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 3:2; Job 1:9-12



    Mark 3:2King James Version (KJV)

    2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.

    Mark 3:2Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    The Pharisees wanted to accuse Jesus of doing something wrong, and they kept watching to see if Jesus would heal him on the Sabbath.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    People are going to watch us to see when we mess up, Christ did not but we will, the greatest witness we have is what we do after we do something wrong.

    Job 1:9-12King James Version (KJV)

    Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?

    10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

    11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

    12 And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.

     

    Job 1:9-12Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    Satan replied, “Would Job worship you if he got nothing out of it? 10 You have always protected him and his family and everything he owns. You bless everything he does, and you have given him enough cattle to fill the whole country. 11 But now suppose you take away everything he has—he will curse you to your face!”

     

    12 “All right,” the Lord said to Satan, “everything he has is in your power, but you must not hurt Job himself.” So Satan left.

    9 Satan was bale to still talk with God because he did not get throne in the lake of fire yet and until he does he still has the ability to talk to God. Satan questions Job, Satan will try to knock us down make us question ourselves. Satan made Eve question God’s word, Satan is known as the accuser.

     

     

     

    10 Satan was saying that because God blessed Job he served Him. We will receive blessing from serving the Lord but our we following Him to serve Him or to receive blessings from Him.

     

     

     

    11 Satan wants to see us suffer, Satan can not do anything to God or do anything to us that God does not allow but he loves the chance to make us unhappy and things hard for us.

     

     

     

    12 God granted Satan the ability to take from Job but was not able to touch Job, no matter what Satan tried to do he would not be able to touch Job because God did not grant it, Satan even though does not follow God is still under God’s authority, those that refuse to follow God are still under His power even though choose not to accept His power.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 3:1; Job 1:6-8



    Mark 3:1 King James Version (KJV)

    And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.

     

    Mark 3:1 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    A Man with a Crippled Hand

     

    The next time that Jesus went into the meeting place, a man with a crippled hand was there.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    A good place to find Jesus is at church.

    Job 1:6-8 King James Version (KJV)

    Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.

    And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

    And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?

     

    Job 1:6-8Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    When the day came for the heavenly beings to appear before the Lord, Satan was there among them. The Lord asked him, “What have you been doing?”

     

    Satan answered, “I have been walking here and there, roaming around the earth.”

     

    “Did you notice my servant Job?” the Lord asked. “There is no one on earth as faithful and good as he is. He worships me and is careful not to do anything evil.”

     

     

     

    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    6 This refers to the angels, this shows that they did not meet with God everyday but had a set time, this might just be for the fallen angels to meet with Him. Satan was and is the leader of the fallen angels and the father of evil.

     

     

     

    7 The Lord knew what He had been doing and knew that Satan would have most likely lied about it as well. God can handle having a conversion with Satan we should not but should talk with God. Satan responds to God, this shows God has authority over Satan because he responds to Him. This is what Satan did and he caused trouble in doing it.

     

     

     

    8 Job is referred by God as His servant, we who follow Him are His servants, and God notices us even if others don’t. Jesus is alone good but because Job had faith and followed God, he was made good by his and the fact that Jesus would later die for his and our sins. We should always worship God and avoid evil; if our eyes are on God then we will not turn to evil, but evil is always just a step in the wrong direction.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 2:28; Job 1:1-5



    Mark 2:28 King James Version (KJV)

    28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

     

    Mark 2:28 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    28 So the Son of Man is Lord over the Sabbath.”

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    This is one of many references where Jesus calls Himself Lord.

     

    Job 1:1-5King James Version (KJV)

    There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

    And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.

    His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.

    And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.

    And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.

     

    Job 1:1-521st Century King James Version (KJ21)

     

    There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one who feared God and eschewed evil.

     

    And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.

     

    His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred sheasses, and a very great household, so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the East.

     

    And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day, and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.

     

    And it was so, that when the days of their feasting were ended, Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all; for Job said, “It may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus did Job continually.

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    1 People do not know exactly where Uz was but people think around the Euphrates where the earlier world was dominated. Job was never a common name people whether this troy actually happened or was just given by God to teach us things, I think it both s true and we should learn from it. This does not mean he was without sin because only Christ was without sin but says that he served the Lord and was made righteous. He had a respect for God, followed His ways and not the ways of the world.

     

     

     

    2 Big families at that time showed that God had favor for you. It was also uncommon in those days to include daughters. Most things of the time would have just said he had seven sons and some daughters or said he had seven sons not making mention of the daughters.

     

     

     

    3 This shows his wealth, how God chose to bless him by giving him wealth. Wealth of that day was measure by what you owned not by the money you had because at this time they may have not had money but did things by trade.

     

     

     

    4 His sons partied everyday; this did not use what God had given them to bless Him they just wasted it. We can be like these sons if we are not careful.

     

     

     

    5 This shows Job’s righteousness, he did not want to even come close to upsetting God, we often times only do things we are wrong to make them right, Job wanted to make sure that when his family did wrong they were forgiven. We can not save others even if we try in the way Job did, Christ would save others by being a sacrifice for us.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.
