Biblical wisdom literature, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job, offers a surprising and unified message about what it means to live a good life.
The Bible is full of rich wisdom that is still relevant to our modern world. Specifically, the Bible’s wisdom literature—Job, Ecclesiastes, and Proverbs—reveals the collected wisdom of generations of godly people, inviting us to consider both the complexities and simplicities of life.
These books are asking the same question: What does it mean to live a good life? And they all offer different solutions. But when we look at the wisdom literature as a collection of writings, we see a clear picture emerge.
