The Qur'anic Jesus

Talk by Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad - Keble College, Oxford - 9 February 2009 - 1 hr 25 mins 09 secs

Our brothers and sisters over in Oxford have also been working hard, outdoing us with a whole term of Experience Islam events, may God reward them. Check out the impressive programme here, and get along to some of the events yet to come if you can. Among the talks so far was this one on Islamic perspectives on Jesus by Sheikh Abdal Hakim. In it he presents the Qur'anic understanding of Jesus ('Isa, peace be upon him), and relates it to historical and contemporary debates about his nature and role. The talk highlights in particular the possibility of a shared Christological dialogue between the Abrahamic faiths.

The sheikh has a truly indispensable knowledge when discussing interfaith issues - especially those with an Islamo-Christian theme.

I think the sheikh should do more lectures like this one because (acccurate) knowledge of Christianity is very scarce among Muslims.

Also can I ask why the post before this was allowed to be published? It clearly serves no purpose.
