The book of Job interpreted from an Old Testament covenant perspective
In the last decades studies on the Book of Job have been done on the assumption that it is a book of Wisdom, in which the perspective of wisdom is reflected. The purpose of this study is not to question any previous research. This is fully accepted, but the question that arises is how this book, which was regarded by the Jews as holy scripture, was interpreted by them. Was it from an ancient Near Eastern wisdom perspective, or from another perspective? The hypothesis is that it was from a covenant perspective. This religious frame of reference in post-exilic Judah was not an ancient Near Eastern wisdom perspective, but a Torah-orientated covenant perspective.
