Our Father Abraham

Date(s): Jan. 8, 2013 - Jan. 22, 2013
Event Time: 6 PM - 7 PM

In addition to sharing core beliefs and values, Jews, Christians and Muslims find kinship in the figure of Abraham. Whether upheld as a model of faith, righteousness, or reverence, Abraham embodies what his progeny are called to be towards one another.

Using the Bible and the Qur'an, as well as post-biblical Jewish traditions, this series explores how each of the Abrahamic faiths presents its spiritual ancestor. Special attention will be given to how ideas about Abraham developed in one tradition impact the others, and how these connections can help overcome interreligious misunderstanding and misrepresentation.

  • January 8 - Abraham the Christian
  • January 15 - Abraham the Jew
  • January 22 - Abraham the Muslim

Lectures are free and open to the public. They will be held in the Barrette Business and Community Center on the Walsh University Campus. This series is part of Walsh University's Lifelong Learning Academy, which encourages and recognizes ongoing adult study by offering stimulating, high level courses and experiences to the general community.
