“I Know That My Redeemer Liveth”
We all know the story of Job, but the book itself proves more challenging and complex than you remember. That said, it provides one of the most powerful wrestles with questions of loss and meaning in scripture.
This portion of the episode includes:
- Literary issues in the book of Job
- Did Job exist?
- Translation issues in Job 19:25
- A return to theodicy
