From Moses To Muhammad

Judaism From Moses To Muhammed by Jean-Pierre Isbouts, From Moses To Muhammad Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download From Moses To Muhammad books, "From Moses to Muhammad" explores the shared literary and cultural origins of Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the context of the Babylonian, Egyptian, Greco-Roman and pre-Islamic civilizations. Among others, the author describes the use of Mesopotamian literary motifs by the Torah; the adoption of Greco-Roman iconography, as well as the Roman basilica form, by early Christianity; and the retention of pre-Islamic practices by early Islam, such as the circumambulation around the Ka'bah, the holy shrine in Mecca. In addition, Dr. Isbouts compares a number of narratives that all three traditions have in common, including the stories of Abraham, Joseph and Moses; and in the case of the Qur'an, the narratives about Jesus and his mother, Mary. What's more, this second edition includes over 100 maps, photographs and archaeological objects photographed throughout the Middle East. "From Moses to Muhammad" has received numerous favorable reviews. Prof. Bruce Chilton ("Rabbi Jesus") wrote, "With sweeping narrative and vivid analysis, Jean-Pierre Isbouts shows that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are rooted in common sources of revelation." NYU's Prof. Francis E. Peters ("The Children of Abraham") calls the book "an exciting and scrupulously fair book," and a "trustworthy guide throughout a perennial minefield." And Rabbi David Rosen said that the book "makes a most important contribution to help overcome negative stereotypes."

Judaism From Moses To Muhammed

Judaism From Moses To Muhammed by Jacob Neusner, Judaism From Moses To Muhammed Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Judaism From Moses To Muhammed books, This book answers the following question for Judaism: among all the things that happened in antiquity, what are the events that, seen from the perspective of the world that would endure, turn out to shape the long future? How did axiological events identify the focal points of the unfolding religious system, Judaism, in its formulation by the rabbinic sages of ancient times? This is the system that originated, in its own telling, with God's teaching to Moses at Sinai in the Torah, in written and traditional form. Of all that happened to the Jews in the millennium from the formation of the Pentateuch ("Moses") to the end of the formative age ("Muhammad"), the particular Judaism that emerged as normative responded to only a select few and did so within a logic all its own. Here we identify those definitive events of danger and opportunity - crisis - and the focal points that they highlighted.

Three Famous Impostors

Judaism From Moses To Muhammed by Adam Freeman, Three Famous Impostors Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Three Famous Impostors books, The three religions proclaim that they are transmitting the Word of God. But can it be that Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad are impostors? Can it be that the Torah was not written by Moses but during the reign of King Josias centuries later? Can it be that the source of the New Testament is Paul and not Jesus? Why is there no chronology in the Quran? Are there two Muhammads and two Islams? Judaism, Christianity, and Islam preach hate and destruction, not love. The Quran (4.82) states, If the Quran was not of God, they would find in it many inconsistencies. This book will study the contradictions and errors of the sacred texts of the three religions to show that they are not from God. Did King David commit adultery and treason? Was King Solomon a dictator? Are the dietary laws for hygienic reasons or to prevent assimilation? Is circumcision from Egypt? Is the epic of Jesus built from Jewish prophecies carefully selected to show they got realized in Jesus? Who cancelled circumcision, the Shabbat, and food restrictions, Jesus or Paul? Did Jesus resurrect? Is the Quran from the angel Gabriel or a salad of the two other religions? Can Allah change His laws? Is Khadija, the first wife of Muhammad, the reason for the teachings of Islam against women? Why is the Muslim paradise so erotic? How did Muhammad resuscitate the pagan beliefs of the Arabs: the Kaaba, the Ramadan, etc.

Peters, a scholar without peer in the comparative study of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, revisits his pioneering work. Peters has rethought and thoroughly rewritten his classic The Children of Abraham for a new generation of readers-at a time when the understanding of these three religious traditions has taken on a new and critical urgency. He began writing about all three faiths in the 1970s, long before it was fashionable to treat Islam in the context of Judaism and Christianity, or to align all three for a family portrait. In this updated edition, he lays out the similarities and differences of the three religious siblings with great clarity and succinctness and with that same remarkable objectivity that is the hallmark of all the author's work. Peters traces the three faiths from the sixth century B.C., when the Jews returned to Palestine from exile in Babylonia, to the time in the Middle Ages when they approached their present form. He points out that all three faith groups, whom the Muslims themselves refer to as "People of the Book," share much common ground. Most notably, each embraces the practice of worshipping a God who intervenes in history on behalf of His people. The book's text is direct and accessible with thorough and nuanced discussions of each of the three religions. Footnotes provide the reader with expert guidance into the highly complex issues that lie between every line of this stunning edition of The Children of Abraham. Complete with a new preface by the author, this Princeton Classics edition presents this landmark study to a new generation of readers.

The Three Rings

Judaism From Moses To Muhammed by Barbara Roggema, The Three Rings Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Three Rings books, In history, Judaism, Christianity and Islam have been both partners and rivals. The well-known parable of the three rings argues in a beautiful paradox how the religion most beloved by the other two will turn out to be in possession of the true ring. This book collects a number of texts in which not just bilateral religious dialogues but the relations between one's own religion and the two others are documented. The texts translated and studied here, date from the medieval period, both from the East and from the West. It brings together in one volume esteemed writers such as the Jews Judah Halevi, Abraham Ibn Daud, Moses Maimonides, and Ibn Kammuna; the Christians John of Damascus, Paul of Antioch, Peter Abelard, Thomas Aquinas and Nicholas of Cusa; and the Muslims 'Abd al-Jabbar, Al-Ghazali, Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya, and Nur-al-Din al-Raniri. The shared knowledge of different religious traditions as testified to in some of these texts, may come as a surprise. Basic patterns of mutual understanding, pluralism, tolerance and dialogue - still relevant today - are drafted.

Allah Is Not God And Muhammad Is The Messenger Of Allah

Judaism From Moses To Muhammed by Ross Genger, Allah Is Not God And Muhammad Is The Messenger Of Allah Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Allah Is Not God And Muhammad Is The Messenger Of Allah books, Islam presents an astonishing situation as it rejects all except those totally committing their will and mind to Allah, Muhammad, and the Qur'an, along with several other authority figures and traditions. The Bible accepts any and all who will come as humble sinners and seek the One God through the sacrifice of the Messiah of the Jews. This book is in total agreement with the Qur'an when the Qur'an says that most Jews and most Christians are evil, corrupt, and liars by the standards of right and wrong found in the Qur'an that is. The alternative is also true and again in agreement with the Qur'an. Muslims do not and may not adhere to the teachings of the Bible, which results in being lost by biblical teachings. The simple truth of the Qur'an is that Jews and Christians do not follow the Allah of the Qur'an, except a few who become Muslim. Also true is that the Muslims do not follow the God of the Bible, except a few who accept Jesus. God of the Bible is not Allah of the Qur'an, and Allah of the Qur'an is not God of the Bible, by name, by description, by personality, by judgment, or by love. The Qur'an has its greatest error when it says it is the completion and continuation of biblical revelation. This is fully accepted by Muslims because they have been taught that the Bible is corrupted, not the true one, and they do not read the Bible.

Download Moses In The Qur An And Islamic Exegesis books, Relating the Muslim understanding of Moses in the Qur'an to the Epic of Gilgamesh, Alexander Romances, Aramaic Targums, Rabbinic Bible exegesis, and folklore from the ancient and medieval Mediterranean, this book shows how Muslim scholars authorize and identify themselves through allusions to the Bible and Jewish tradition. Exegesis of Qur'an 18:60-82 shows how Muslim exegetes engage Biblical theology through interpretation of the ancient Israelites, their prophets, and their Torah. This Muslim use of a scripture shared with Jews and Christians suggests fresh perspectives for the history of religions, Biblical studies, cultural studies, and Jewish-Arabic studies.

Download Wissenschaft Des Judentums Beyond Tradition books, The scholarly study of the texts traditionally regarded as sacred in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam has been an important aspect of Wissenschaft des Judentums and was often conceptualized as part of Jewish theology.

A Day Apart

Judaism From Moses To Muhammed by Christopher D Ringwald, A Day Apart Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Day Apart books, The Sabbath is the original feast day, a day of joy and freedom from work, a holy day that allows us to reconnect with God, our fellows and nature. Now, in a compelling blend of journalism, scholarship and personal memoir, Christopher D. Ringwald examines the Sabbath from Creation to the present, weaving together the stories of three families, three religions and three thousand years of history. A Day Apart is the first book to examine the Sabbath in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. A marvelously readable book, it describes the three weekly holy days--the Muslim Juma on Friday, the Jewish Shabbat on Saturday and the Christian Lord's Day on Sunday--and introduces us to three families, including Ringwald's own, and shows how they observe the holy day and what it means to them. The heart of the book recounts the history of the Sabbath, ranging from the Creation story and Moses on Mount Sinai to the teachings of Jesus and Muhammad, the impact of the Protestant Reformation and the Industrial Revolution, and the rise of the modern weekend. Ringwald shows that the Sabbath instinct, to observe a special day of withdrawal and repose, is universal. Indeed, all religions and philosophies teach that life is more than toil, that time should be set aside for contemplation, enjoyment and culture. In today's frantic 24/7 world, the Sabbath--a day devoted to rest and contemplation--has never been more necessary. A Day Apart offers a portrait of a truly timeless way to escape the everyday world and add meaning to our lives. "I can not recall reading anything on the three faiths that so deftly engages them in robust conversation. Amazingly learned, Ringwald nonetheless has a light, friendly touch. The warmth of his soul is unmistakable." --Christian Century

After Hardship Cometh Ease

Judaism From Moses To Muhammed by Ze'ev Maghen, After Hardship Cometh Ease Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download After Hardship Cometh Ease books, Islam prides itself on being "the religion of facility". Muslim sources are unanimous in assigning to Judaism the role of counterweight in this regard, pronouncing it a system of "burdens and shackles" by which the Jews "oppressed their souls". This neat polarity both fueled, and was the product of, a fascinating reciprocal process: at the same time that sharī'a was being created in the negative image of halakha, halakha was being retroactively re-imagined by Muslim jurists and exegetes as the antipode of sharī'a . Although scholarly studies of the intertexture of Islam and Judaism abound, few have touched upon the Muslim tradition's perception and utilization of Jewish law, and none has done so in depth. This book aims to fill that lacuna and further our understanding of the age-old embrace and grapple between the two faiths.
