Job 4–5, 11 (Job’s Friends) with Patricia Vesely
Dr. Patricia Vesely of Memphis Theological Seminary talks to us about Job’s friends, looking in particular at Eliphaz in chs. 4–5 and Zophar in ch. 11. We discuss a number of things including: the significance of friendship in Job; what the friends get right and wrong; connections between Job and the Psalms; the friends’ low view of humanity; and their emphasis on technique in relating to God.
