Job

The Books of Poetry: Job

The Bible was written over some 1,600 years by 40 authors, ranging from kings and princes, poets and philosophers, prophets and statesmen to unschooled fishermen.

The 39 books of the Old Testament were written, before the birth of Jesus Christ, mostly in Hebrew.  The 27 books of the New Testament were written in Greek.

The focal point of the Old Testament is Mt. Sinai in the Arabian wilderness where God gave Moses the Ten Commandments.  The focal point of the New Testament is a hill outside old Jerusalem called Golgotha where God’s only Son, Jesus Christ, was crucified but came back to life three days when He was seen by some 500 witnesses.
