“How can God be loving and allow suffering?” is one of the most difficult theological questions there is. Though we may not know why we suffer, we do not suffer alone. Yeshua Himself is called “a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief” (Isaiah 53:3). When enduring the inevitable trials of life, we are to trust in Him.
In this episode, we speak with Carissa Kerstetter and Kim Surasky, who struggle with chronic illness. We discuss questions including:
- How does Yeshua’s suffering give us hope to endure our own suffering?
- Does suffering have any purpose?
- What advice would you give to a family member of someone who is suffering?
- How does being aware of suffering in Jewish history help us share about the Messiah with Jewish people?
