When was the Book of Job Written.

March 23, 2014

Prophet Ezechiel in his teachings told about three righteous men: Noah, Job and Daniel.
” — Prophet Ezekiel, exiled in Babylon, during the 22 years from 593 to 571 BC—”
So one can understand that already 2600 years there has been   knowledge about the book of Job among Jewish people .http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Ezekiel

He can be one of those  wise believing  righteous  men of East   from among them  even Abraham was called to his  special  task in this world. The  difference  between Abram and Job was only that  Job´s purpose  for all his  righteous living was to  have  the  Divine life  straight away  now  and  here   in this generation,  in daily life. Of cause that  is a good thing and the blessings  of   his righteousness are  seen in 3-4 generations after him.  He was very busy  to  see the results of his righteous living  direct, and could not understand why it can happen something negative to a man like him, who always is striving to do good  works, and God did allow it,at last,  too,  He  really  got a good life after   many natural catastrophes, accidents, damages and sickness and scolding,  nagging  occult adviser- friends.   God   also taught him  about the  eternal life and  His  Divine point of view.

But Abraham , first of all  tried to find out what God  did want  with him.

Book of Job can be  some kind of parallel history of  men of the same time period. becausee one can ask, why God did choose just Abraham. There were so many as  righteous men there in the world.
