Job 9, 16, 19 (Job’s “Redeemer”) with Brennan Breed
Dr. Brennan Breed (Columbia Theological Seminary) talks to us about Job’s “Redeemer” in Job 9, 16, and 19. We discuss a number of things including: the translation of the famous passage in Job 19:25–27, its place in the book, the history of its interpretation, the metaphors it draws on, and its connections with passages elsewhere in the Bible, including Psalm 88, Jeremiah, Genesis 15–18, and Romans.
