Sermon on Job 19:23-27, for the Resurrection of Our Lord, Easter Sunday; about the resurrection faith of Job in the midst of his trials and sufferings. A faith that confessed his hope in the resurrection of the physical body and his Redeemer, who would one day stand upon the earth. What other longings did Job express that are also fulfilled in Christ Jesus? How does the book of Job answer the question of why the righteous serve God, even in the midst of suffering? Why is this sentence: "I Know that my Redeemer Lives" of such great comfort to believers?
