008 - Preview of Unit 02: The Bible and the Koran as Books

To get started and as an introduction to the whole field, we will look at the Bible and the Koran as complete books.

For this we first highlight four seeming similarities between the book of the Bible and the book of the Koran: both have to do

(1) with revelation,
(2) with God,
(3) with men of God and
(4) with God's creation and God's judgment.

Then we will look at seven differences that clearly distinguish the book of the Bible from the book of the Koran: for each book we discuss

(1) the history of formation of the book, then
(2) the original language(s),
(3) the status of translations,
(4) the order of the content,
(5) the size of the entire text,
(6) the usage of the book, as well as
(7) the existence of possible supplements to the respective book.

These differences will help you pinpoint the inner limits for any comparison between the Bible the Koran.
