Opportunity for Interfaith DialogueFebruary 28, 2011
Brite’s continuing education program is pleased to announce an opportunity for interfaith dialogue that is free for Brite students:
Understanding Abraham: Three Traditions
Co-sponsored by Brite Divinity School and Beth-El Congregation
The stories of Abraham, Hagar, Sarah, and their two sons are foundational to Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. Join three scholars as they explore the meaning of these stories and the way the narratives shape their own tradition’s understanding of call and covenant, promise, sacrifice, and faithfulness. In three consecutive Tuesday evenings we will cover:
March 8—Call and Covenant (Genesis 12:1-7; 17:1-10; Qur’an 2:125-140; 3:65-68)
March 15—The Birth of Two Sons (Genesis 16; 17:15-22; 21:1-20; Qur’an 14:39)
March 22—The Binding of the Sons and the Burial of the Father (Genesis 22; 25:7-9; Qur’an 37:99-109)
