This paper discusses how Job's tale in the Old Testament is one of the most accessible of Biblical allegories. It looks at how an honorable, just, pious man loses everything--his ten children, his wife, his entire estate and on top of it all is inflicted with a horrendous skin disease that leaves him crippled and how all this was done as a challenge and a test of his faith. It also examines how the Book of Job has a happy ending in which a pleased God restores Job's fortune as a reward for his steadfastness and how it also sends a profound message to its readers and reflects the Hebrew concept of deity described throughout the Old Testament.
