Abraham and His Children is an Old Testament course focusing upon the Abrahamic narratives of the Hebrew Bible, Genesis 11-25, and the traditions of Abraham as developed in the Talmud, New Testament, and Quran. Abraham and His Children is also an interfaith course; the course encounters numerous ‘Abrahams’ among and within the three monotheistic traditions and asks whether the figure of Abraham can, in fact, be a central, unifying force among the ‘Children of Abraham.’ Course themes include hospitality, pilgrimage, faith and failure, strangers and aliens, reconciliation, and the sacredness of relationships.
