Legacy of the Prophets

Date(s): Feb. 11, 2013 - Feb. 25, 2013
Event Time: 6 PM - 7:30 PM

Jews, Christians and Muslims all affirm that God has spoken through prophets. While each tradition has its own convictions about when prophecy ceased (or climaxed), all three Abrahamic faiths look to the prophets as teachers and exemplars of what it means to be a community called to justice and holiness.
