Register to join us for the fourth event of the series “Preaching Jesus with Interfaith Sensitivity” webinar. The upcoming lectionary includes passages addressing the righteousness of Abraham’s faith, the commandments given through Moses, and the new covenant and the law within. This webinar will address the meaning and importance of the law (including types of legal thought and the relevance of legal paradigms in scripture) and in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions more broadly.

Learn practical and specific ways Lenten sermons might more constructively represent the perspectives of Jews and Muslims from our panelists:
