THE PLACE IN THE STORY

This week, we continue in Job.  Job is considered to be in the category of the “Wisdom of Israel.”  Some also know this category as “The Writings.”  It includes Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, and Job.

The account of Job is very old…see the summary of Job below:

Considered both a theological and a literary masterpiece, the book of Job is an honest portrayal of God allowing a good man to suffer. The test of Job’s faith, allowed by God in response to a challenge from Satan, revealed God’s loving sovereignty and the supremacy of divine wisdom over human wisdom (personified by Job’s friends). Believing that God is good despite the apparent evidence to the contrary, Job rested in faith alone. In the depths of agony he could still proclaim, “I know that my Redeemer lives” (19:25). In the end God silenced all discussion with the truth that he alone is wise (chs. 38–41). Yet he vindicated Job’s trust in him (ch. 42), proving that genuine faith cannot be destroyed. The unknown author was probably an Israelite writing sometime between 1500 and 500 b.c.  [The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton: Standard Bible Society, 2016), Job.]
