Today we read the grand finale of Job’s saga. We have previously read about Job’s anguished protests that God has abandoned him in his time of suffering, God appeared in a whirlwind to reorient Job’s perspective. In the conclusion, we are assured God is always present and intervenes with mercy, in times of suffering. The blessings Job had received before, however, were not the same as those he had lost. In the letter to the Hebrews, Jesus’ high-priestly ministry is further described, with the revelation that God’s mercy and presence is available through Jesus, who still lives to pray and intercede for us when we suffer. In Mark, we see Jesus showing the fullness of God’s compassion to those who are suffering, with Jesus tenderly asking blind Bartimaeus what he would like from him. Ironically, in asking Jesus for his sight, the blind man demonstrates that his perception is already clear. He sees who Jesus is and what he can do for him, which the disciples had yet to fully grasp.
