Were ever the being of God, his glorious attributes and perfections, his unsearchable wisdom, his irresistible power, his inconceivable glory, his inflexible justice, and his incontestable sovereignty, discoursed of with more clearness, fulness, reverence, and divine eloquence, than in this book?
The creation of the world, and the government of it, are here admirably described, not as matters of nice speculation, but as laying most powerful obligations upon us to fear and serve, to submit to and trust in, our Creator, owner, Lord, and ruler. Bible commentator Matthew Henry on the book of Job
Jesus' reason for dropping only dark hints about (for instance) His messianic role, atonement, resurrection, and forthcoming reign, was twofold: first, only events could make these things clear in any case; and second, Jesus' concern was to call people into discipleship through His personal impact on them, and then teach them about Himself within that relationship, rather than to offer detailed theological instruction to the uncommitted. J.I. Packer
