Dr. Serene Jones, Professor Deborah Dash Moore,Professor David N. Myers, and Mr. Safaa Zarzour reflect on the event in their interViews with the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue.

One thought on “Leading Scholars Reflect on the Future of Islam and Judaism in America

  1. You might say both sides miss the point, in that both are right in what they deny (Mark did not write the Longer Ending; Mark 16.9-20 is not uncanonical) but wrong in what they conclude from what they affirm (Mark 16.9-20 can be set aside as “secondary”; the Longer Ending is “original”). Canonicity and originality are two separate issues. That’s equally hard for old-school historical critics as for “original autograph” inerrantists to get their head around.
