The Book of Tobit

The book of Tobit is my favorite bible story.  It is sad to say it is not in all Christian Denomination's bibles.

One reason I like it because it is the one story in the whole bible which mentions a dog.  I had a dog named Toby and dogs have been important to me on my journey throughout my life.

I like it because it is a happily ever after love story, where demons are triumphed over.  Arc Angel Raphael chases Asmodeus out of town and strangles him.

It is a story about the power of prayer.  The newly weds pray together.

Arc Angel Raphael, (a close friend of mine) is an angel walking among people, as his family is mentioned.

It is a story of the healing of a man who was blinded by bird poop.  Arc Angel Raphael uses fish parts when healing Tobias's father Tobit and when Tobias helps drive out the demon.  Arc Angel Raphael is the patron saint of doctors and nurses (I am a Registered nurse).  Thus, it is a story of healing.

It is a story about economic justice.  Tobias asked how much he is to pay his fellow traveler and he is told to pay him as he is paid.

"Prayer with fasting and alms with uprightness are better than riches with iniquity."  XI The Revelation 12:8

If anyone else has noticed anything cool about the book of Tobit, please comment.

Oh- I researched.....It also tells that God rewards the Just and punishes the wicked.
