Apr 27 '14 at 8:21 comment added Baby Seal How did you understand it? It's contending whether or not Job was Jewish. See footnotes in your lnk, and rashi. I don't see what that has to do with being in the torah, again, because by that logic, many books in the prophets should be in writings. See also judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/34835/…
Apr 27 '14 at 7:51 comment added Shmuel => 6 But did not all the prophets prophesy to the heathen? — Their prophecies were addressed primarily to Israel, but these addressed themselves primarily to the heathen." I don't think I misunderstood this quote, but maybe I did. You can have a go at it.
Apr 27 '14 at 7:51 comment added Shmuel @BabySeal Re Gentiles - Here's the full quote. "Seven prophets prophesied to the heathen, namely, Balaam and his father, Job, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite, Zophar the Naamathite, and Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite.3 He replied:4 Granted as you say [that Job was one of these], was not Elihu the son of Barachel from Israel, seeing that the Scripture mentions that he was from the family of Ram?5 Evidently [the reason why he is included] is because he prophesied to the heathen.

Apr 27 '14 at 7:49 comment added Shmuel @Scimonster - Correct, but I think that's more of a critique of the question than this answer.
Apr 27 '14 at 5:31 comment added Scimonster "it isn't part of Torah because it isn't clear if it was written by Moses" >> You might as well flip it around and say that it's not clear if Moshe wrote it because it's not in the Torah. And then, you also might as well ask why the tehillim that Moshe wrote aren't in the Torah.
Apr 27 '14 at 4:57 comment added Baby Seal What does the quote about prophesying to gentiles have to do with anything? Yoel, Obadiah, and Jonah, are basically all about Ninveh and Edom. That had no bearing on their location.
Apr 27 '14 at 4:55 comment added Baby Seal @DoubleAA the answer is saying that they weren't sure it should be, so they left it out. From Shmuel's most recent comment, though, the question arises again acc. To R Joshua, but he does attempt to address that point toward the end, by drawing on saba hillel's answer.
Apr 27 '14 at 2:12 comment added Double AA So according to R Joshua, it is part of the Torah?
