Rambam on the Identity of Job


"The incredible matter of Iyov is of the type we have been discussing, a parable to explain human views regarding Divine supervision. You already know their explanation, and how some have said, 'Iyov did not exist and was not created; he was a parable,' and how those who thought he existed and was created and that his story is about a real event knew neither his time nor his location… This strengthens the view that he did exist and was not created…"

(Rambam, Moreh haNevuchim 3:22)

Have a great day,
