Master of Theology (Th.M)
The first step to answering these questions, the aim of this paper, is to identify this author's assumptions. These may include, though they are not limited to, 1) the coherence of the final form of Job as a literary work,23 2) the MT as a reliable starting point for examination, 3) a "responsibility toward evidence" related to the methodology of historical criticism 24 and 4) that no one methodology, scholar or tradition ought to drown out the others, but that a broad survey of Joban scholarship will prove helpful to the task.
