This week we looked at the final pursuit of the Preacher in finding meaning in life through his toil -- which in the end was vanity.
The book of Ecclesiastes is an Old Testament book that offers a contemporary question: what is the purpose of life? In the opening lines, 'the Teacher', says, 'What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?' It is this question that has led to countless pursuits of happiness, meaning, and purpose. As we walk through this book, we will discover the biblical principles that help shape the Christian today.
Many have called this book pessimistic, but as we will see, it shapes the Good News of the Gospel and the resurrection of Christ!
