-No one is sure who wrote it but there are three theories: Job himself, Moses, or an unknown author
-Five main people: Job, Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar, and Elihu
-The main message of Job is to trust in God no matter what happens
-Written in Hebrew poetic style, except for the first two chapters and the epilogue
Job 1: 1-11
-In the begining of the book of Job, we infer that Job is a prosperous man woth a firm faith in God
-We know this because it states that Job feared God
-God is content with Job, but then Satan comes and challenges God to test Job
Job 1: 13-19
• My part of the chapter ends at verse 11, so my prediction for the story is that Job will be tested by God
• It it similar to how God tests us in everyday life and hpw we should accept these challenges
-Job was blessed with many good things: a big family, a wife, sheep, a nice house, and many servants

-Satan states that he will plague God's servant, Job, and plagues him by giving Job sores from head to toe
-Job's wife tries to make Job question God, and why he is letting this happen
