This volume collects essays by Stefan Schreiner on the interpretation of themes and texts of the Jewish Bible, the Koran and Islamic tradition, as the subject of the divine image of man, the Sabbath commandment or Quranic interpretation of the Ten Commandments. There are also issues that are in regard to the relationship between Jews, Christians and Muslims are of particular interest: the importance of the land of Palestine and the city of Jerusalem in the Koran and Islamic tradition, the interpretation of Jesus' death according to the tradition of the Koran and the Islamic interpretation of the Sermon on the Mount.The result is a picture of the Judeo-Islamic (and Christian-Islamic) relations in the formative period of the third monotheistic religion, which has a surprising perspective. It is clear that the basic texts of Islam can only be understood if they are embedded in the Judeo-Christian tradition in sight.
