Intro to Job

There is a great debate as to when Job was written. If you just look at the Scripture though you get certain hints

There is no mention of Abraham or his sons, the covenant, the Passover, the Exodus….all the great stories of

history that continually make up Old Testament literature and referring backward in history about the life

of Israel and Judah because of Abraham and the covenant

That’s why I believe Job is pre-Abrahamic, or about 2500 years before Christ.

THE UNIQUE part of Job is a picture that could happen regularly. Satan goes into the presence of God and

says, I want to afflict Job . He only likes you because he’s rich

The entire book is judgment and suppostition why God is “punishing” Job.  Actually God limits Satan to what he can do to Job

That should greatly encourage the Christian
