1. Sweeney, Mark. Islam and Christianity: Comparing the Theory of Supersession Concerning Abraham.

Degree: MS, Religious Studies, 2014, Florida International University

Supersession is the theory of one idea supplanting the other. In both Christianity and Islam, this idea is commonplace. In Christianity, the message of Jesus creates a New Covenant for both Jews and Gentiles, while in Islam, the revelation of Muhammad restores the original religion that God intended from the beginning. Christianity and Islam both supersede Judaism in very similar ways. In regards to the use of Abraham in particular, each religion inherits him by appealing to Jewish scripture or their oral tradition, using him to prove their truth claims, and claiming that their religion is originally the religion of Abraham. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Eric Larson, Dr. Iqbal Akhtar, Dr. Albert Wuaku.

Subjects/Keywords: Abraham; supersede; supersession; Islam; Christianity; Judaism; fulfillment
