Loss and Restoration—Two Biblical Stories

Lecture no. 24 from the course: The World of Biblical Israel

Loss and Restoration—Two Biblical Stories

Taught by Professor Cynthia R. Chapman | 35 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Conclude your study of biblical Israel with a look at the stories of Abraham and Isaac and the trials of Job. Each of these tells a narrative of loss and recovery, of displacement and restoration, and each asks questions about the nature of suffering and the mystery of the Israelite god. These questions—and what answers the text could offer—would have held meaning and hope for a community in exile.
