Segments in this Video

Doctrine of the Holy Trinity (03:52)


The concept of trinity is the basic blueprint on which Christian life is built. God reveals himself as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Muslims believe in the unity of God, and therefore do not accept the trinity concept.

Fundamental Unity of God (06:02)

Muslims reject the concept of three gods in one. The Quran warns that those who believe in the trinity will be punished. All three major religions believe in the fundamental unity of God.

Holy Spirit (05:17)

In Christianity, the Holy Spirit is the part of the triune God. The Spirit is mentioned in the beginning of Genesis, present at the Creation. In the New Testament, the Holy Spirit takes on some qualities of "personhood."

Messiah: Islamic Christology (05:52)

Jesus Christ is mentioned many times in the Quran and is honored as a great prophet, often referred to as the "son of Mary." Jesus is quoted as saying he is the messenger of God. Muslims also believe in the second coming of Christ.

Crucifixion (07:21)

The cross is the central symbol of the Christian Church. The Quran teaches that Jesus was not crucified, but was taken directly into heaven by God. The rescued, raptured Jesus makes more sense to Muslims than a crucified Jesus.

Salvation (04:10)

Christianity and Islam are religions of revelation and redemption. Original sin requires a sacrificial lamb in Christianity, but Islam holds that all are born with "clean slates." Muslims will be judged by their actions and obedience.

Islam, Christianity, and Judaism possess a rich body of writings that are authoritative and normative for the life and faith of their respective communities. In this program, Timothy George, author of Is the Father of Jesus the God of Muhammad?; Amina Wadud, author of the groundbreaking Qur’an and Woman; and Ibrahim Kalin, author of many articles on Islam and Islamic thought, present their perspectives on the revelatory and inspirational texts of the three religions of the Book. In the process, they compare the illiteracy of Muhammad to the virginity of the Virgin Mary as essential conditions for the untainted transmissions of the Word and contrast views on the validity of sacred works in translation.
