A Jew, a Christian and a Muslim Walk into CU…

Rabbi Marc Soloway

Has the Messiah been and gone?  Are we anxiously awaiting his arrival so we can all be redeemed?  Is he coming round for a second time?  Could the Messiah be a she or an it?  How will the world be different once the Messiah is here? These are some of the questions that we are likely to be pondering on an interfaith panel called The End of Time: The Concept of the Messiah in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

I will be joining Reverend Paul Carson from Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Denver and Ozgur Koca, an Islamic scholar from the religious studies department at Claremont Graduate School in California, as we ponder what each of our faith traditions has to say about who or what Messiah might be at the end of days.  The panel will be moderated by Dr. Brain Catlos from CU’s Religious Studies Department next Thursday September 27th, the night after Yom Kippur, at at 6:00 pm in Eaton Humanities (HUMN) , room 150. It is co-sponsored by the Rumi Club.  Kindly RSVP to rumiclub@colorado.edu

In the event that the Messiah arrives before Thursday night, we may relocate to Jerusalem.  Look out for more details.
