Event Details

Where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding?
Mortals do not know the way to it, and it is not found in the land of the living.
The deep says, ‘It is not in me,’ and the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’
Job: 28: 12-14

Tempest Horizon 2021, Nicky von Fraunhofer


Bereaved, bankrupt, and unwell, the eponymous hero of our story, Job, searches for meaning in his suffering. By turns comforted then taunted by ill-advised but well-meaning friends, Job’s quest for wisdom finally brings him face to face with God. Through poetry, provocation and personal encounter will Job resolve his quest, or does his conversation only bring about more questions?

Whether you come from any faith background or none, find out how this epic narrative from the Hebrew Wisdom tradition explores issues that have startling modern resonances. For this study, you are welcome to bring any version of the Bible. If you do not have access to one, the text is also freely available on many websites.
