The course considers the backgrounds, texts, history of interpretations, and ways in which Jews, Christians and Muslims understand their sacred books, shape their communal worship and ethics, and relate to one another and the world in the present. We will reflect on the possibilities for using joint scriptural studies for inter-religious religious dialogue. Knowledge of Hebrew, Greek and Arabic not required.
