A206 ENG 26. The Church in Jerusalem

For the first time in history a prophet of God brought together prophetic ministry and political power and put in place a political religious system that potentially could extend to the whole world. That is why the Hijra is so extremely significant theologically, politically and practically. In this part of the lecture David Shenk talks about the Muslim Ummah in Medina and other territories which were under Muslim control or were hostile.

A206 ENG 25. The Muslim Ummah in Medina

For the first time in history a prophet of God brought together prophetic ministry and political power and put in place a political religious system that potentially could extend to the whole world.

A206 ENG 24. The Significance of the Cross

There are many dementions to the meaning of the cross and Jesus crusified and risen. David Shenk begins this session with the topic of the forgiveness of sins which is also very central to the meaning of the cross. Our Muslim friends yearn for forgiveness but they can't be sure as they haven't received the gift of forgiveness.

A206 ENG 23. Jesus's Journey to the Cross

Now you will look at a different journey. People wanted to establish the kingdom of God in Galilee and asked Jesus to become their king, but he refused their invitation. Muhammad received the same kind of invitation while being in Mecca and he accepted it. The kingdom of Jesus is the way to the Cross. You are going to look at one dimention of Jesus's journey to the cross which is the way of the kingdom to embrace and forgive the enemies.

A206 ENG 22. Migration of Muhammad from Mecca to Medina

On the cross we are given the gift of righeousness and we become free from the obligations to religious rituals. David Shenk uses a narrative form of describing the migration of Muhammad from Mecca to Medina to explain what it means theologically in the islamic understanding of the necessary political mechanisms to bring about the will of God on Earth. That migration is called the Hijrah. You will also learn about the theology that was forming Iranian-Muslim revolution.

A206 ENG 20. Tanzil and Incarnation Part 1

Muslims believe that the final Word of God has come down to us as a book, the Qur'an. Within the Christian movement the eternal Word has become human. In this lecture David Shenk spends some time on interpreting the idea of Living Word and what we mean when we say that Jesus is the Son of God. You will also learn why there is misunderstanding about the Trinity and what the Qur'an says about that issue.

A206 ENG 19. The Arabic Qur'an

Muslims believe that Muhammad was the first one to memorize the revelations received from Gabriel. And the Angel brought it down in Arabic so that the Arab people might understand but it can't be translated. David Shenk explores the Quran to understand why Muslims think that the Bible is corrupted and interpretes what the Qur'an says.

A206 ENG 18. Understanding the Qur'an

Within the Muslim understanding revelation comes down and so it transcends history. After reading the Bible a Muslim might say that it is corrupted because it has historical narratives. The teacher asks the students to come up with the answer to the accusation that the Bible cannot be the Scriptures. David Shenk shows how different our understanding in regard to the nature of revelation is.

A206 ENG 17. Is Muhammad the Seal of the Prophets

A question that we need to ask is "What do we think of Muhammad and the Qur'an?" In our conversations with muslims this question always comes up. David Shenk explains the reasons for asking that question and the way we should answer it.

A206 ENG 16. The Qur'an and Muhammad

In this lecture you will look at the role of Muhammad in the Muslim movement. Muhammad is the model which reveals true submission to the Qur'an. They also think that when Jesus talks about the Comforter He promises to send Muhammad. David Shenk explains why they are wrong in their speculations.
