    Legacy of the Prophets Webinar Recording

    Legacy of the Prophets: A Dialogue about Scripture from Baptist and Muslim Perspectives
    Webinar Recording

    In this 60 minute webinar recording, Muslim and Baptist women consider together the concept of prophecy and its similarities and differences between Islamic and Christian perspectives. Baptists and Muslims revere many of the same prophets, and both traditions seek to learn from the lessons of these prophets.  In this webinar, we studied messages and prayers of the prophets from both the Baptist and Muslim traditions, including Isaiah, Abraham, Moses, and others. We discussed Jesus and Muhammad, too. This webinar explories the legacy Muslims and Christians have received from the prophets in scripture, as well as the legacy we create today by being prophets in our own time, in our own communities!
