Religion 502 pages, 19 hours 15 minutes on Audible
Description: The Qur'an (sometimes Koran) is the primary religious text of the Muslim faith, canonically writings by the prophet Muhammad between the years 609 and 623. We will have a practicing member of the faith join the call who can speak to the as-lived experience of their religion.
Intent of Session: This religious workstream is making its way through the holy texts of major world religions. It is intentionally a beginner or entry level discussion - these are important texts that people literally spend their lives understanding, and this short session is not intended to be able to cover all details, stories, and teaching exhaustively. The discussion will be free form, with very loose guiding themes of:
-Both local/historical context discussions (such as location and time period relevance of the Tanakh and Qur'an, political motivation for King James Bible's creation, etc.).
-Commentary on the comparison/contrast between each text as we go along, as many text share prophets and stories in different forms. Specific regard and perception of figures and shared stores, such as the life of Moses in the Old Testament compared to the Qur'an , resurrection of Jesus from different perspectives, etc.
-A 'what's actually written' vs. 'what the mainstream understanding' is, for anywhere we find particularly interesting differences or discussion points.
