Admittedly, this is not my favorite portion of scripture. To compensate for my lack of knowledge in the nuances of different interpretations of Daniel’s (crazy) visions, this week’s lesson PowerPoint is a compilation of links to sites — some of which I agree with, some of which I don’t, that offer explanations and clarifications of these prophecies. I hope that you’ll continue to study–and if you come up with a coherent interpretation of these passages–will you share them with me in the comments?
This week’s discussion revolved around the many questions from the book of Job. For one, why in the world is it not pronounced like it looks like it should be? :-)
We considered the problem of pain and suffering. God points out Job to Satan. Were it not for His actions, we could assume that Job’s life would have missed the suffering he experienced, and so on.
We looked at files from other congregations. Here are their materials:
More to come next week…
This week we wrote cards — I hope you will too. Here’s our brief PowerPoint.

Dear faithful reader,
If you exist, I just wanted to let you know that I’m now caught up. Thanks to RememberTheMilk.com, I’ll now have a weekly reminder to put the PowerPoint files from our Wednesday night study of F. Lagard’s Chronological Bible on the site.
Sorry for the delay. I back-dated the posts to help with organization…
The end, finally, is here. Week 36 PowerPoint.
