Unformatted text preview: Chapter Questions BIBL 105 part 2 1 : Chapter Questions BIBL 105 part 2 Jerald Brooks BIBL: 105-B33 Professor: Nehemiah Hanson Date: Chapter Questions BIBL 105 part 2 2 Module 5 Chapter 19 Chapter 19: Question 1- What are some of the common characteristics of Hebrew poetry? How does biblical poetry differ from much of our modern poetry? The common characteristics of Hebrew poetry are; Meter, Parallelism, Chiasm, and Acrostics. Biblical poetry differs from modern poetry by its Parallelism; in which is two parallel lines of a verse. (Arnold, & Beyer, 2003) (pgs. 282-285). Chapter 19: Question 2- How would you explain parallelism to someone who had never heard of it? We would explain it by the following; “we have at least two parallel lines of verse; that is, each complements the other(s) in some way. Typically, the lines display parallelism of thought rather than parallelism of rhyme or sound.” (Arnold, & Beyer, 2003) (p. 282). Chapter 20 Chapter 20: Question 4- Describe the points of view of Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar. Where did they place the blame for Job’s suffering? What was Job’s response? The points of view of Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar are; "Eliphaz emphasized God's justice and purity, and taught that people (including Job) bring trouble on themselves. Bildad typically appealed to tradition and considered himself a defender of orthodox doctrine. He explained that an individual who pursues wickedness (like Job) should not be surprised by divine punishment. Zophar considered himself a rationalist , and reasoned that Job's punishment was no less than can be reasonably expected." Job’s suffering was from his friends which “where approaching the problem from the perspective of Israelite monotheism, their solutions failed to transcend the Mesopotamian Chapter Questions BIBL 105 part 2 3 solutions.” Job’s response was that; “In chapters 6 and 7, Job answered that his so-called friends were not helping his situation. He challenged his associates to be specific about his guilt (6:24, 30), implying that God’s reproof was out of proportion to his sin. Death appeared to be the only resolution for his problems (7:16-21) (Arnold, & Beyer, 2003) (p. 295). Chapter 20: Question 5- How does Elihu characterize Job’s problem? To what does he attribute God’s silence? What does he see as the key to alleviating Job’s suffering? Elihu characterizes Job’s problem by; “He addressed Job directly and recapitulated the problem as one of unanswered prayer (33:13).” He attributes God’s silence by; “Elihu informed Job that God was unaffected by events on earth. If God has been silent, it was because he recognized insincerity in Job’s requests (35:13-16).” The key to alleviating Job’s suffering was that; “He informed Job and his counselors that God is just in his treatment of king and slave alike, and in any situation, repentance is the key (36:10-12).” (Arnold, & Beyer, 2003) (p. 30)....
