In this paper I will be exploring the Biblical understanding of suffering from a Jewish and Christian perspective. Then, based on post-Holocaust Jewish thinkers such as Richard Rubenstein, Emil Fackenheim, Eliezer Berkovits, Zachary Braiterman, and Christian thinkers such as Jürgen Moltmann and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, I will contemplate whether or not a shift occurs in the Biblical interpretation of suffering after the Holocaust.
