This talk will expand your horizons and blow your minds - in a good way. Ron, building on his Jewish heritage, begins with Job and the complexity of life. It isn't straightforward or fair. He then traces how the great Jewish thinkers combed through the OT for centuries looking for answers to Job's big questions. They came up with the brilliant concept of 'Tzim Tzum' around the 11th century AD. In essence - it means God's greatness manifests itself in containment and concealment, not explosive 'power'. Elijah's still small voice. We finish with a picture of God that seems to point straight to Jesus and the mystery of the Cross. You will have to listen a couple of times!!
