Talk:Job the Long-suffering
Technically, the claim that Job is an ancestor of Esau is a derivation from the "Testament of Job" a Jewish folkloristic retelling of the story of Job. Other academic interpretations (based on Syrio-Arabic legends) can easily convince you that Job is infact, Tobias and a decendant from the line of Nepthali ...
I am wondering, given that there are two different academical points of view can we state so matter of fact on an Orthodox site that his origins are that of Esau? Vasiliki 05:48, March 20, 2009 (UTC)
