What a start to today’s readings. We are dropped into Job’s monologue that paints his current emotional state as one of utter despair and brokenness.

What's in a name? In today’s Gospel passage by John we have an assortment of names applied to Jesus—“Lamb of God,” “Rabbi” (teacher), and “Messiah” (the Christ). Jesus is in the process of picking the Apostles and each of these names gives us a different view of Jesus depending on whom he was interacting with. None fully described who he was or his mission.
