Panel Discussion: Stories of the Prophets
Can understanding the Torah, the Bible, and the Qur’an increase empathy and connections among cultures that are often at odds? Join a conversation with local faith leaders on the similarities and differences among prophetic traditions in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The stories of Noah, Abraham, Jonah, Mary, and others play a key role in all three religions. Their stories are told differently, and the lessons for the faithful are not always the same, yet all three faiths see themselves as following the tradition of Abraham. In this interfaith dialogue, an imam, a minister, and a rabbi share the teachings they take from these ancient tales. Panel members include Imam Talib Shareef, Rabbi Jack Moline, and Reverend Donald Isaac. Made possible in part through the support of the El-Hibri Foundation.
