Theology of Prophecy in Dialogue (Bonn)

Research group of the University of Paderborn.
The Qur’anic approach to prophecy challenges Jewish and Christian perspectives for a variety of reasons. The Qur’an seems to have some concrete features of prophets in mind that are not completely coherent with the Biblical tradition. Moreover, it is the selection of prophets within the Qur’an that is idiosyncratic and confusing from Jewish and Christian perspectives. For example, important prophets, such as Isaiah and Jeremiah, do not appear by name in the Qurʾan but Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, considered as patriarchs in the Bible, are named prophets in the Qur´an.
