Satin Tempted Job

Satin Tempted Job January 13, 2015

I didn’t have a lot of howlers in student assignments this past semester. But there was one that made up for it: it said that “satin tempted Job.” I thought that was worth sharing.

The image comes from the Bible Exploration website. Yes, I know it is a depiction of Joseph and his coat of many colors. But it seemed to work as a portrait of Job being tempted by satin, too. Or do you think that this one, from Bible History Online, would better illustrate the misspelling of “Satan” as “satin” in the statement about Job?

    If you were covered in boils, satin would be pretty tempting too.

    The book of Job gives an interesting picture of the mind of God. God had no prior knowledge of the course of Job’s life, to the extent that Satan
    moved God to give Job a life that God had never even considered before
    Satan had caused him to do it:

    Job 2:3 “And the LORD said unto Satan,
    Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the
    earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and
    escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, ALTHOUGH THOU MOVEDST ME AGAINST HIM, to destroy him without cause.”

    This really speaks against the idea that God has knowledge of the whole of our lives and that He has a plan for our life in advance.
