Abraham's Whiteboard: Angelic Beings of Abrahamic Traditions


What’s Happening?

Registration: https://www.trifaith.org/events/abrahams-whiteboard-angelic-beings-of-abrahamic-traditions/

Angels and other angelic beings have captivated the imagination of both artists and everyday believers for millennia. In scriptural stories and theological beliefs, otherworldly figures serve a multitude of roles in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. How are angels described in these traditions, and what purposes do they serve? What similarities or differences are there in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam’s perspectives on angels and other similar figures? Do they matter to your personal faith? This session will explore these questions and more through scriptures, art, and history.

Abraham’s Whiteboard is a monthly educational class led by Tri-Faith’s Education Director, Jeremy Fricke, on a wide variety of special topics, historical moments, and world religions. For example, a session could focus on definitions of religion or on non-Abrahamic religions like Hinduism or Buddhism. All Abraham’s Whiteboard sessions are open to all people regardless of background, but will connect the content to Judaism, Christianity, and/or Islam.
