Bible Study on Ecclesiastes - Ecclesiastes 1:1-11

Please pray for tomorrow evening when Stefano will continue the series of Bible Studies on Ecclesiastes.

What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?
Ecclesiastes 1:3 (ESV)

To illustrate the meaninglessness of a life's search for satisfaction apart from Christ, we will look
at the figure of Sisyphus.

In Greek mythology Sisyphus was a king punished by being compelled to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this action forever.

The word "sisyphean" means "endless and unavailing, as labour or a task".
