Shared Stories: Heroic Afterlife in the New Testament & Qur’an (YP)
August 12, 2019 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
From Abraham, Sarah and Hagar to Joseph, Moses, Miriam, King David and the Queen of Sheba, biblical figures loom large in the classic stories of Christians and Muslims. Do these shared traditions connect us, divide us, or both? This lecture series will focus on the three Abrahamic traditions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam – and their respective core scriptures: the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament and the Qur’an. This course will also examine texts from later traditions including rabbinic midrash and Islamic traditions.
