Section one of Job contains a very modern narrative of setup and exposition, which was typical of the Western tradition and indicates that this part was written after Alexander the Great swept over Judah in B. The happy ending of Job is also very much in this tradition.
Between these two sections, the list of misfortunes that Job endures, and his tumultuous confrontation with God, are written in a style that would have been around eight or nine centuries old when the beginning and ending were written. Proverbs was likewise continuously updated until about the mid-second century B. Wikimedia CommonsA rendering of the Greeks taking Persia. Before then, the Jewish people had been doing very well under the Persians, and they were not happy about the Greek takeover.
Their main objection seems to have been cultural: Within a few decades of the conquest, Jewish men were flagrantly adopting Greek culture by dressing in togas and drinking wine in public places.
Women were even teaching Greek to their children and donations were way down at temple. The writings from this time are of a high technical quality, partly thanks to the hated Greek influence, but they also tend to be melancholy, likewise due to the hated Greek influence.
Finally, the question of who wrote the Bible turns to the texts dealing with Jesus and beyond. In the second century B. In time, Hellenistic rule fell apart in the area and was replaced by the Romans. It was during this time, early in the first century A.
The first Gospel to be written may have been Mark, which then inspired Matthew and Luke John differs from the others.

Saul of Tarsus famously converted after an encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus, after which he changed his name to Paul and became the single most enthusiastic missionary of the new religion. Soon John was also given the responsibility of overseeing the Alliance Elementary School program, which was subsidized by the Dutch government.
He also filled in as a teacher at the Continuation School in Tigi, grades four through six. At the same time he did district work in the Lake Tigi area. For the last year of their first term, John and Janine moved back to Enarotali to teach in the Kapauku language Bible School. After furlough they taught in the same Bible School, now located at Kebo, where they worked for several years with Walter and Viola Post, the first missionaries to the interior of Irian Jaya.
Since no medical work was being done in Kebo at that time, they began to give out medicine, learning to give injections and treat injuries.
Though they had no formal training, they learned by doing, often consulting a mission doctor via the short wave radio.
Most of the people who came were helped, and nobody died! The years in Kebo became the best of their lives, even though they had to evacuate twice because of political unrest in the area. The Later Years After an extended furlough because of a severe medical problem of one of their children, they returned to Irian Jaya and at the request of the church they started the Theological School in Nabire. The Lord evidently gave His approval to this new project, since He provided the money to develop the campus and the personnel to teach.
John and Janine can look back over years of blessing in that second phase of their ministry. Their three oldest children, Ruthy, John Paul and Mitch, were born during their first term, with Viviane joining the family after their first furlough.
All their children are following the Lord and serving Him in different ways. Chapter 7  Then the LORD said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before me in this generation. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark.
Chapter 8  But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and all the domestic animals that were with him in the ark.
And God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided;  the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, the rain from the heavens was restrained,  and the waters gradually receded from the earth. At the end of one hundred fifty days the waters had abated;  and in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
So he put out his hand and took it and brought it into the ark with him. Ham was the father of Canaan. These are the descendants of Japheth in their lands, with their own language, by their families, in their nations. The descendants of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan. Afterward the families of the Canaanites spread abroad. Chapter 11  Now the whole earth had one language and the same words.
When Shem was one hundred years old, he became the father of Arpachshad two years after the flood;  and Shem lived after the birth of Arpachshad five hundred years, and had other sons and daughters.
She was the daughter of Haran the father of Milcah and Iscah. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. When they had come to the land of Canaan,  Abram passed through the land to the place at Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. At that time the Canaanites were in the land. So Abram went down to Egypt to reside there as an alien, for the famine was severe in the land. And the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house. Why did you not tell me that she was your wife?
Now then, here is your wife, take her, and be gone. At that time the Canaanites and the Perizzites lived in the land. Separate yourself from me. If you take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if you take the right hand, then I will go to the left.
Let them take their share. Chapter 16  Now Sarai, Abram's wife, bore him no children. She had an Egyptian slave-girl whose name was Hagar,  and Sarai said to Abram, "You see that the LORD has prevented me from bearing children; go in to my slave-girl; it may be that I shall obtain children by her. I gave my slave-girl to your embrace, and when she saw that she had conceived, she looked on me with contempt.
May the LORD judge between you and me!
So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant. I will bless her, and she shall give rise to nations; kings of peoples shall come from her. Can Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child? I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him.
When he saw them, he ran from the tent entrance to meet them, and bowed down to the ground. At the set time I will return to you, in due season, and Sarah shall have a son. He said, "Oh yes, you did laugh. Far be that from you! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?
Will you destroy the whole city for lack of five?
