Interfaith Webinar (Part 2): Jesus, The Christ


Interfaith Webinar (Nov 10, 2021): Jesus, The Christ

Moses, Jesus, and Muhammed are considered central figures in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam respectively. Despite the seeming similarity, the three religious traditions actually differ considerably in their understanding of the role and function of these key figures.

The Trialogues will explore their respective religious significance and their relevance for today.

The purpose of the trialogues is to explore both commonalities and differences between the three religious traditions.

Each webinar will include a presentation by our panelists, a discussion with the responders, and questions from the audience.
