Marianne Bjelland Kartzow is preparing with colleagues in South Africa for THE SECOND UNISA SYMPOSIUM OF NEW TESTAMENT AND EARLY CHRISTIAN STUDIES
The time when Jesus was portrayed exclusively as a salvation figure in Christianity and as a symbol for the West and European nationalism is gone. Christians in the West are surprised to learn about the role that Jesus plays in Islam, and ideological criticism challenges the picture of a mono-cultural Jesus.

Seminar with Lars Kirhusmo Pharo, Post.doc.

In this seminar, we will attempt a more dialogic comparison of presentations of Jesus and Muhammad as historical figures who also have a role as role models for current religious identity.
