Difficult Texts in the Old Testament: A Workshop Approach

Date, time, and location TBA

Each year the Difficult Texts in the Old Testament group will examine a difficult passage in the Old Testament from multiple angles. This year we will focus on Job 42:5-7, with three brief (5-min) invited presentations. These will focus on Interpretive Problems in Job 42:5-7, Job 42: 5-7 in Its Literary Context, and Job 42: 5-7 and a Biblical Theology of Lament. Each will be followed by a collaborative audience-driven discussion. We will then conclude with a brief (5-min) response and a final shorter discussion. Questions may be directed to Brittany Kim ([email protected]), Charlie Trimm ([email protected]), or Traci Birge ([email protected]).
