The Book of Iyov (Job) addresses the problem of theodicy – why God permits evil in the world – through the tragic suffering of the character Job. Wealthy and happy, God allows Satan to destroy Job and his family, in order to test his faith. For centuries the book has puzzled, disturbed and animated philosophers and commentators, as well as artists and writers. In this session, Benny Lau, founder of the 929 project, explores diverse perspective on the Book of Job, based around the daily chapter for 14 June. 929 brings commentary on a daily chapter of Tanach from divergent perspectives, demonstrating the deep resonance and relevance of Tanach for people of all backgrounds.
