  • Prelude: Reflecting with Nelly Sachs on the Man from Ur -- A. Abraham as the Possession of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. I. Abraham and Judaism. 1. The birth of Judaism. How do we speak of Abraham? The Torah as an instrument for coping with crises. No Judaism without Abraham. 2. Abraham's role in the great catastrophe: exile. Even prophets refer back. The collection of the 'Five Books of Moses'. 3. Everything depends on Abraham: the book of Genesis. The remarkable strangeness of Abraham. Guarantor of God's promises: people, land, peoples. Partner in God's second covenant. The primal model of faith: being on the way. 4. The politicizing of Abraham between the Testaments. Judaism as a 'descendant of Abraham': Joshua 24/Psalm 105. A self-portrait with Abraham: Ben Sirach. Radical separation: the spirit of Qumran. Abraham as a militant figure: 'The Apocalypse of Abraham'
  • 5. The Idealization of Abraham: the spirit of Hellenism. Abraham as the primal model for knowledge of God: Philo. Abraham as the great bearer of culture: Josephus. The 'attractiveness' of Judaism for Gentiles. 6. Abraham observes the halakhah: the rabbis. A new 'paradigm' of Judaism. Abraham as arch-priest and primal rabbi. Abraham: the beginning and end of all things. The first monotheist and missionary. 7. The paradox: the non-Jew Abraham is made a Jew. Israel alone is the child of Abraham. Abraham as the primal father of all converts. What does it mean to be a spiritual child of Abraham? Maimonides and the case of a convert. II. Abraham and Christianity. 1. Jesus of Nazareth: renews, does not displace, Israel. What Israel has to relearn. The failure of Israel to convert. The other table-fellowship with Abraham
  • 2. Abraham - 'the father of us all - in the presence of God': Paul. The tension: Jew and Christian at the same time. The battle over the inclusion of the Gentiles. Who are Abraham's children? Is Israel disinherited? Jews - Christians: the universal perspective. 3. From Abraham to Jesus - the line of God's blessing. Jesus Christ - the 'son of Abraham': Matthew. God's mercy on Jews and Gentiles: Luke. Abraham - a model for faith: the Letter to the Hebrews. 4. Christians claim Abraham for themselves: John. Anxiety and crisis: the situation of a marginal community. No hostility to the Jews in principle. The break: children of the devil instead of children of Abraham. The beginning of a disheritance of the Jews. 5. The Christianization of Abraham in the early church. Abraham - the exclusive witness to Christ: the Letter of Barnabas. Judaism as a dead religion: the letters of Ignatius. 'We Christians are children of Abraham': Justin's Dialogue
  • 6. The paradox: the non-Christian Abraham is made a member of the church. The mystery of Abraham: Augustine and the Jews. Jews now serve Christians: the City of God. From the inclusion of the Gentiles to the exclusion of the Jews. III. Abraham and Islam. 1. Ishmael - an enigmatic son of Abraham. What no one could have suspected. Cast out - yet blessed. Ancestor of the Arabs: Jewish traditions. 2. The battle for the one God: the time in Mecca. Arab traditions about Abraham before Muhammad. Muhammad's battle against the idols and their cult. A new, old faith. Key witness against the idols: Abraham. 3. Structures of a new religion: the time in Medina. The break with the Jews. The new role of Ishmael. The new role of the Ka'ba in Mecca. 4. Abraham - the model Muslim. The sacrifice: understanding what 'Islam' is. The primal model of the true believer. Against the claims to possession by Jews and Christians
  • 5. The paradox: the non-Muslim Abraham is made a Muslim. Abraham - Muhammad: the line of the true religion. Islam as the earliest and most authentic religion. Processes of idealization: Muslim traditions. 6. Abraham - the possession of any religion. Abraham and the halakhah: Judaism. Abraham and the church: Christianity. Abraham becomes a Muslim: Islam -- B. Perspectives for an Abrahamic Ecumene. I. Presuppositions for an Ecumenical Awareness. 1. The new horizons of the world. The necessary recollection of a disastrous history. The end of Eurocentric modernity. 2. Self-criticism of the religions as a way to peace. The declaration of the World's Parliament of Religions. Against religious fanaticism. 3. Judaism: salvation for others in the sign of Noah. Why the commandments to Noah are important. What being a Jew means today
  • 4. Christianity: the possibility of salvation for non-Christians. Co-operation instead of polemic: Protestant churches. High respect for Jews and Muslims: the Catholic Church. 5. Islam: no compulsion in faith. Universalism instead of exclusivism. Dialogue in faith: zeal over the good. II. What Abrahamic Ecumene Cannot Be. 1. The difference from the Christian ecumene. 2. No enthusiastic 'back to Abraham'. 3. Abraham does not replace Moses 'our Master'. 4. Abraham does not replace Jesus 'the Christ'. 5. Abraham does not replace Muhammad 'the Prophet'. III. What Abrahamic Ecumene Can Mean. 1. Abraham - an abidingly critical figure. An abiding primal image of faith. Abraham the stranger - a criticism of all traditions. A reminder of responsibility for one another
  • 2. Recognizing Abraham's presence in others. Biblical foundations: Noah - Abraham - Ishmael - Jesus. Abrahamic ecumene: Jewish perspectives. Abrahamic ecumene: Christian perspectives. Abrahamic ecumene: Muslim perspectives. The 'brotherhood of Abraham' in France. And elsewhere? 3. Trust in God beyond intolerance and idolatry. Faith in God without impatience. Freedom from the compulsions of religious systems. No demarcation against non-Abrahamic religions. Against idolatry old and new. 4. Making peace by partition and treaty. How Abraham made peace. Voices of peace in the spirit of Abraham. An Abrahamic peace mission: Anwar el-Sadat. Places of peace for the children of Abraham: Hebron-Jerusalem? 5. Praying together for peace and reconciliation.
