Revelation and Prophecy

Prof Dan Madigan S.J.
Georgetown University

The issue of revelation is one of the most contested questions between Muslims and Christians, but often degenerates into an unproductive argument about the textual reliability our respective scriptures, and the relative merits of Jesus and Muhammad. The Muslim critique presses Christians to consider carefully the relationship between revelation and scripture. It also poses the question of what Christians might say about the Qur’an and Muhammad.
