CHRTC 203 Topics in Catholic Tradition: A Comparative Study of the Bible and the Qur'an

The Hebrew Bible contains the history of kings, prophets, and people of Israel, also some chapters devoted to religious law. The New Testament contains the Gospels which depict the life of Jesus, and letters regarding Christian belief. In the Qur'an, various topics are scattered within different chapters. However, there are numerous allusions in the New Testament to the Hebrew Bible, and in the Qur'an to both. Notable similarities as well as differences are found in these three scriptures. A comparative study is fruitful for obtaining a better understanding of the Abrahamic faith and the relation between the approaches of the three religions on certain topics.
