UNDERSTANDING OUR SCRIPTURES AND OURSELVES
INTER-FAITH DIALOGUE SERIES
Jews, Christians and Muslims believe that their Scriptures are inspired messages from God to humanity. Yet we have sharp disagreements about what is included in the Scriptures and how to understand them. How do Tanak, Old-New Testaments, and Tawrah-Zabur-Ingil describe the “Bible”? What is the Qur’an’s relationship to the Bible and to non-Muslims? Does God “speak” in different “voices” to different faith communities? Is there a unified message? How might we understand “hot-button” passages? What may we learn from one another?
The Fall series opens our 12th year of Inter-Faith Dialogues. All sessions are held at the Respect Graduate School where there is ample parking. The discussions are candid and respectful. The recommended donation of $20 per person covers the initial dinner, refreshments and expenses for the entire series. All sessions are held on Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:15-7:30 PM and conclude by 9:00 PM. Presenters will be announced soon!
