This chapter focuses on discerning what Maimonides says about Job. In some passages, every line will have to be carefully scrutinized to get to Maimonides’ true intention. Only toward the end of the chapter will it be possible to analyze Maimonides’ reading with respect to the three interfaces that are the focus of this study. It is shown that Maimonides’ reading of Job greatly influenced other medieval Jewish philosophers. In fact, there is no reading of Job in medieval Jewish philosophy after Maimonides that does not bear his imprint.
