 TREASURES FROM GOD’S WORD | JOB 11-15

Job Was Confident in the Resurrection

Job Was Confident in the Resurrection

Job expressed his faith in God’s ability to resurrect him

14:7-9, 13-15

  • Job used a tree—perhaps an olive tree—to illustrate his confidence in God’s ability to resurrect him

  • An olive tree’s expansive root system enables it to rejuvenate itself even when the trunk has been destroyed. As long as the roots remain alive, the tree will sprout again

  • When rainfall breaks a severe drought, a dry olive stump can spring back to life with shoots rising from its roots, producing “branches like a new plant”
