God’s Wager: A Theological- Homiletic Reading of Job 1–2

Rob O’Lynn, D.Min.
Associate Professor of Preaching and Ministry
Kentucky Christian University


This is an engaged approach to read Job 1–2 through the application of theological exegesis. As defined by Gorman, theological exegesis seeks to read Scripture formatively in order to develop a confessional approach to disciple- ship. Emphasis focuses on God as the central character of the text. Next, attention turns to the homiletic component, as a theology of hope is applied to gospel proclamation. A sermon précis will be offered as a practical application of the concepts discussed.
