3/28/08 Setting of Prophets- 8 th century dates. Introduction to Isaiah. 735-732 BC “The question of Job is the question of disinterested righteousness.” Bildad’s advice (chapt. 8) “Does God pervert justice? Maybe your children have sinned. If you make things right he will restore you. If this theory does not hold, society will far apart.” Obey= blessings (Deuteronomy) Disobey= cursing (Proverbs) “Job, you should rely on tradition.” Job’s reply (chapt. 9) “There is no one like God. He is all-powerful. He is not a mortal that we should come to trial together and I may have a chance of being right and he wrong. There is no one to judge. God is judge, jury, and executioner.” Eliphaz Speaks (chapt. 15) “Have you listened to the councilof God?” He challenges Job’s arguments against tradition/ “You are undermining societal tradition.” Ending (chapt.s 38-42) God answers Job “Who is it that darkens my council? Who is running their Mouth? Was he there when I built the world?” Job is humbled.
