When was the book of job written?


Answer by  Kurt (4579)

There is a wide range of dates of when scholars think the book of Job was written. There is no exact date that can be proven. Most scholars think it was written somewhere between the time of Solomon and Israel's exile to Babylon. ( 2000 - 1000 bc )

Interesting: Solomon came after David, and David was around 1000BC. The exile has been precisely dated to 598/7 BC and ended in 538 BC: so, where did the 2000 - 1000 BC come from ?  add a comment

It is said that Job is the Oldest book in the Bible. Possibly even before the books of Moses were written. (The first 5 books. )
