So, even if you are not ready to utter it, join us.
He has blocked my way so I cannot pass; he has shrouded my paths in darkness. This was pretty sophisticated stuff. Matt has been through his own personal crucifixion. But has he kept his soul? He points out several linguistic links between the portrayal of both the Servant, Job, and righteous, God-fearing, Israelites in exile — those who shared the fate of disobedient Israel, and suffered, while still being faithful.
Job, and the suffering servant, become the figure who will lead Israel out of exile from God — death — and into life. The Good Samaritan is this sort of figure too — if the person in the ditch is also exiled Israel. In his lecture notes that he provided, which were received in thanks Doug says: Jesus, in his full divinity and full humanity holds those two aspects of any answer to the question in tension.
The experience of Job, and righteous Israelites suffering in exile the suffering servantanticipate the suffering of Jesus. I know the story Matthew. Well, then, you know what happens next.
God rained shit and misery on the life of his most perfect servant, and still, Job would not curse him. You know what I realised. Job was a pussy… See. That was me sister. I am what I do in the dark now. Friends who visit him in his misery, and, rather than being a comfort, pile on more misery… mostly by giving horrible advice.
He is not suffering because he did something wrong. God has not abandoned him.
And yet… he suffers. The central moral dilemma in this season is the question of what should happen to Kingpin. His friends are faithful. If he crosses that line Matt will never be able to forgive himself. Where he has Fisk truly at his mercy, in that crucible moment, he stays his hand.
His relationships are mended. He has listened to his wise friends — and in his restoration, his redemption, they are all redeemed. They all discover the power of forgiveness and reconciliation. Much like Job ends up making sacrifices to restore himself and his friends to relationship with the life-giving God.
See, I was pretty angry at God and bitter towards his world. How could a loving God blind me? And the tragedy of being human is that we only get to see it from the back. With all the ragged threads and the muddy colors.
And we only get a hint at the true beauty that would be revealed if we could see the whole pattern on the other side as God does. Maybe my life has been exactly as it had to be. Matt is now free to be Job; free to trust God. Free to be a servant. Light in the darkness.
We see God, our friend, stepping in to our suffering — and taking on suffering, death, hell and exile, for us, to bring not just his resurrection, but ours, to end our suffering, exile from God, and death, by giving us life with God forever, so that we might face what comes without fear.The premise for the ad is ‘do what Jesus would do’ – the filmmaker was ‘brought up in a Christian home’, and says: “You have to look at the intent to really look at what Jesus would do if he was alive in seeing religion is all about being selfless, this is the most selfless act anyone could do, if they were going to pass, you know, giving up their organs so that someone.
