Writer In his presentation for Suffering Interfaith and Intercultural Interpre tations of at Texas Lutheran Colleges Krost Symposium Solo mon Bernards on Wednesday shared Jobs story of going from prosperity to total destruction Bernards said that the central con cern of the book of Job its very essence is the experience of suffer ing unfair unjust suffering He says this book rejects easy answers but is a harvest of insights about relationships of justice a lov ing God and suffering true author of the book according to Bernards is not really known but it is known he was a tru ly sophisticated writer Bernards said it has been ques tioned whether Job was a true figure or a fictional character He says there has been evidence on both sides Scholars who have studied fabled heroes say the stories are based on real people Bernards said the book of Job was written during the fifth and third preChristian century He pointed out that there are some pas sages very difficult to understand Its transmission must have been low Bernards said The scribes were not as precise or exact in the transmission of this Bernards then shared the story of Job that is in two chapters and five scenes Job was an extremely prosperous man blessed with seven sons and three daughters He was known to allow his children to hold wonderful celebrations He was also known for his compassion and piety In the next scene a scene in heaven Bernards said God is with Satan a celestial being that reports scandal to the Almighty The Almighty is boasting of Jobs piety Satan taking a cynical observation challenged God to take away Jobs well being his goods and his family and see that the piety will vanish God is provoked and agrees In four disasters Jobs posses sions and children are taken away from him Job tears his garments shaves his head and prostrates himself shouting that naked he came into the world and naked he would return Job recites the famous statement The eternal gave the eternal has taken away praise the name of the DOROTHEE SOELLE was the first speaker Wed nesday afternoon asthe 10th annual Krost Sym posium got under way at Texas Lutheran Col See Rabbi Pg 2 lege This years theme is Suffering Interfaith and Intercuttural Interpretations of Soelle was followed at the podium by Solomon Ber nards The Krost Symposium concludes this afternoon Staff photo by Steve Boehm Reactions mixed on first discussions at TLCs Krost Symposium By BARRY HALVORSON Writer While there was an apparent con sensus among the major participants jri this years Krost Symposium entitled Suffering Interfaith and Jntercultural interpretations of their reactions to the initial two speakers were mixed based on a panel discussion held in response to those two opening presentations The presentations were delivered by Dorothee Soelle a resident of Germany and among the founders of the action group Political Evening a movement of theological political reflection and action and Solomon Bernards a recognized Jewish theologian The first response was given by Ruth Bernards the wife of Solomon Bernards She said the topics raised the question of suffering and that she could identify with the idea that suf fering is punishment for sin but said that the challenging part of the ques tion was in how a person would respond to the suffering She told the tale of a survivor of the holocaust who during a forced death march stopped and attempted to aid a German soldier She said the woman said it was at that point she chose what course her life would take to live as a human being and help other human beings She said that the lesson taught by the holocaust which Mrs Bernards said was the greatest example of suffering in history was to be sure as individuals that it not be allowed to happen again to work at elimi nating any suffering that was being inflicted on man by man God wants an active Bernards said God doesnt want blind piety but for people to take She was followed by Maria Tere sa Porcile a recognized Roman Catholic lay worker from Uruguay Porcile focused on the difficulty in interpreting the biblical text of Job and that had she not been familiar with the book she would have had two different impressions of the book based on the earlier presentations She said that the book which is based on the theme of innocent suf fering raises a number of disturbing issues She said that in the context of the book Job no longer exists in the current world She said that it raises a pair of concepts one of an omnipotent God who is not so omnipotent and the second a God of compassion See
