The Odyssey and the Book of Job


In the story of The Odyssey, Odysseus shows that he is perseverance throughout the story.

'"Dear friends, surely we are not unlearned in evils. This is no greater evil now than it was when the Cyclops had us cooped in his hollow cave by force and violence, but even there, by my courage and counsel and my intelligence, we escaped away. I think that all this will be remembered some day too. Then do as I say, let us all be won over."' Book 12

Job also showed perseverance throughout The Book of Job

Job endure suffering beyond compare, but through all of his tribulations he persevered and overcame.

I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God.
Job, 19. 25


Picture of Job at one of the weakest moments of the story, he was covered in sores but still be pushed on and was rewarded greatly in the end.

So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and struck Job with loathsome sores from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head. Job 2:7
