This volume presents essays by Stefan Schreiner referring to texts and themes of the Jewish Bible as they are retold and interpreted in the Qur´an and in Islamic tradition, e.g. the motif of man being created in the image of God, the Sabbath commandment, the narrative of the »binding« of Isaac, the Jonah and Job narratives and the Qur´anic rendering of the Decalogue.

Additionally, this volume brings essays that are of particular interest for Jewish-Muslim and also Christian-Muslim relations: the relevance of the land of Israel (Palestine) and of the city of Jerusalem (al-Quds) in the Qur´an and in Islamic tradition, the interpretation of the death of Jesus according to Muslim texts and the Islamic rendering of Jesus´ sermon on the Mount. It becomes clear that the basic texts of Islam can be understood only if the context of the pre-Islamic Jewish-Christian tradition is reckoned with.
