Biblical dating of job


20-Oct-2015 19:19

If Job can reasonably be dated in the time of the patriarchs, it becomes a very real possibility that the Sumerian stories derived from Job via oral tradition, instead of vice versa.

The book’s theme is the eternal problem of unmerited suffering, and it is named after its central character, Job, who attempts to understand the sufferings that engulf him.

I believe the Book of Job was written during the time of the patriarchs, 1900 to 1700 BC.

This date makes the most Biblical and historical sense given the evidence, some of which I will list below.

Therefore, because both the Sumerian and the Job stories wrestle with similar questions, liberal scholars conclude the Job story MUST be derivative from the Sumerian stories.

On the other hand, many conservative scholars date the book of Job to 1900-1700 BC, the time period known as the time of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Chapters 28 and 32–37 were probably later additions.The Book of Job’s artful construction accounts for much of its impact.
