Job 18

Job's Sacrifice BC image

Job's Sacrifice Plate 18

Job is a new man, loved by, and for God.   In this picture he is praying for any and all .                                                                                                                   
Notice the angels circling around the border (or are they are Job's

Notice the open Bible on the bottom left and the scroll on the bottom right. (We might see the Bible representing the Old Testament and the scroll the new one.)

Job's arms are spread like a pastor pronouncing the benediction.

The fire in the altar are reminiscent of the fire of God that came to
Elijah's altar in the contest with the prophets of Baal. It is a cleansing and healing fire.
