“I read the book of Job last night. I don’t think God comes well out of it,” Virginia Woolf wrote in a letter to Lady Robert Cecil on 12 November 1922. Using Edward Greenstein’s new translation & commentary on Job (“Job: A New Translation,” Yale University Press 2019) we will situate Job in wisdom materials of the Ancient Near East, the Hebrew Bible, and the Second Temple period, and together read and discuss new readings and interpretations of this profoundly engaging yet perplexing text.
