Our Father Abraham

Reading Genesis and the story of Abraham and pulled out a book of essays in Honor of Gordon Professor Marvin R. Wilson entitled Perspectives on Our Father Abraham written by nineteen Jewish and Christian scholars. I didn’t realize that a PBS documentary based on Professor Wilson’s book Our Father Abraham:Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith was made entitled Jews and Christians: A Journey of Faith. Here’s a short segment which is quite thought provoking in itself as various members of both communities openly share their perspectives which provide a place to start in understanding the strong connection and rocky history of relationship between the two communities.

Professor Wilson was the editor and translator of the New International Version from the 1970’s, and taught at Barrington College for eight years, followed by Gordon College for thirty-nine years.
