Job—Deepening the Conversation

Lecture no. 9 from the course: Biblical Wisdom Literature

Job—Deepening the Conversation

Taught by Professor Joseph Koterski, S.J. | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

As you continue your exploration of the first cycle of speeches, gain deeper insight into the logical error made by Job's friends. Job's insistence of his own innocence leads to the conclusion that there must be other reasons for suffering besides divine retribution.
