review characteristics of biblical wisdom texts

questions
Questions
  • What is the overall purpose of the book of Job?
  • A definition: Theodicy (“justifying God”) - defense of God’s goodness and omnipotence in the face of the existence of evil
  • Is Job a theodicy?
  • How does God deal with Evil?
  • What do we learn about God, the Adversary, and Job from the first two chapters?
  • Was Job “sinless”?
  • What are human motives for obedience?
further questions
Further Questions
  • What is so inappropriate about the friends’ (Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar) statements? After all, they seem to have a good handle on basic principles of justice.
  • What is the essence of Job’s responses to his friends? Does he disagree with them regarding the nature of God?
  • What do Job’s statements about and to God indicate?
  • And what do we learn from the responses of God?
brief background
Brief Background
  • From the land of Uz - which may be equivalent to Edom (Lam 4:21)
  • Date: Customs and institutions may imply patriarchal period for events
  • Authorship and date of composition unknown – but likely composed in the framework of the covenant community of Israel
sketch of the book of job
Sketch of the Book of Job
  • Narrative framework (chs 1-2, 42)
    • Job’s character established – his mediating role
    • Heavenly scenes with God and Satan
    • Epilogue – rebuke of friends; restoration of Job
  • Job’s initial outburst of grief and pain (3) – note the adumbration of Leviathan (3:8)
  • Three poetic cycles of dialogue, the last of which is incomplete (4-27)
    • Note changing character of friends’ statements
    • Note Job’s addresses to God; increasing pleas for audience
  • “Monologues” from Job and Elihu (28-37)
  • God’s verbal responses (38-41)
job s perceptions of god
Job’s Perceptions of God
  • God is just and sovereign over all creation
  • Dismay over God’s sovereign control over his life
  • God seems to be Job’s Adversary – and Job says so!
  • At the same time, Job trusts and hopes for an Advocate (ch 16) and Redeemer (ch 19) who is God
god s responses to job
God’s Responses to Job
  • Job has neither the knowledge nor the power of God
    • God as Architect, midwife, commander-in-chief
    • God’s sovereign control over all the vast reaches of the universe
    • Note allusions to wild animals; no mention of humans
  • Thus, Job cannot claim to speak of the moral realm
  • The figure of Leviathan – what does it suggest?
    • Note Isaiah 27:1; Job 26:12-13 and Revelation 12
