Creation in Abrahamic Traditions

What it Means for Jews, Christians and Muslims

A special Three-Part Series in 2020, Thursday evenings from 7:00-8:30

Six Days of Creation | February 6, 2020
How do our faith traditions (including modern interpretations) inform our beliefs about living in a Created Universe. How old is the Universe and other questions about how we correlate science with Creation. Resting on the seventh day? (Muslims don’t. Christians might, but on usually on Sundays)

Adam and Eve and “Original Sin”? | February 13, 2020
How do our faith traditions understand the story of Adam and Eve, eating the “forbidden fruit”? Are humans born in “original sin”? And if so, what does that mean? Was the Snake “the Devil”?

Humanity Created in God’s Image | February 20, 2020
How do our traditions interpret this concept and how does it relate to how we treat people of other faith traditions. What is the role of humanity in God’s Creation? (Partners? Agents? Servants?) What does God expect from humanity? What does God hope for humanity?
