Many Christians believe the book of Job is the earliest book of the Bible, written sometime before Moses in the patriarchal era. Few Old Testament scholars assign any merit to this idea.

Does any point of biblical history or theology depend on the answer? We discuss all these issues in this episode of the podcast.
