Job 28 (The Wisdom Poem) with Scott Jones

Dr. Scott C. Jones (Covenant College) helps us “mine” the depths of the marvelous and mysterious wisdom poem in Job 28. We discuss a number of things, including: the speaker of the poem, its challenge to human self-confidence, its ancient Near Eastern background, the difficulty of translating its imagery (and translating in general), and its connections with the Epic of Gilgamesh (and space exploration).
