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).
