Yes, I do struggle with Job the most of any book out of the Bible. It's the most challenging to me. With Jesus in the equation it definitely gives a deeper meaning to the fact that Jesus took a lot of the suffering of Job -- but the selling point of Job was that he did not sin and the fact that he was the most righteous of God's followers.

I am finishing up a Bible in the year devotional right now. Job 42 and the resurrection end the devotional. What strikes out to me is that Job just realizes how insignificant he is at the end. He is completely humbled. And so should we all as disciples of God instead of being tied to the world.
