Job 42 (Job’s Response and Epilogue) with Carol Newsom

Join us as Dr. Carol A. Newsom (Candler School of Theology) talks to us about Job’s response and the epilogue in Job 42. We discuss a number of things including: how to understand Job’s enigmatic response to God, why the translation of 42:6 in your English Bible is likely wrong, God’s surprising approval of Job’s speech, how the epilogue fits (or doesn’t) with the rest of the book, why readers find it disturbing, Job’s re-embrace of life, and the significance of Job’s daughters.
