McDonnell Hall

Jerry Leitner presents Jesus In the World Religions: An Exploration of How Non-Christian Traditions View Jesus

A growing understanding of truth sees truth as plural: no one viewpoint is sufficient to explore any reality. So: imagine a Jew, a Muslim, a Hindu, and a Buddhist seated around a table. Surprisingly, the topic is Jesus - a figure respected by each tradition, but in differing and illuminating ways.

This presentation examines how four of the great religions understand Jesus of Nazareth and the insights they unveil both to those who see him as divine and those who see him as one of world's greatest teachers.
