This course seeks to cover a significant amount of biblical material in a short period of time. It will therefore be an overview of the book of Job and its theology. Special attention will be given to situating the book’s theology in its redemptive-historical and canonical context. Therefore, the course will suggest ways to interpret Job biblically-theologically and therefore eschatologically and Christologically. There will be non-trivial pastoral application, particularly to the questions of care for the suffering and how to glorify God in the midst of “the fiery trial.” Last of all, we will give brief attention to the question of theodicy and how Job speaks to key apologetic insights by Cornelius Van Til.
