The three major religions of the world, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, share central stories and stem from the teachings of the prophet Abraham.
"There is a close link between Judaism, Christianity and Islam," humanities and philosophy department Chairperson David "Dejarah" Houston said. "It's all the same thread."
Judaism was the first of the three monotheistic religions founded and is, in a sense, more traditional, Houston said. Christianity, the most populous religion in the world, followed and embraces the Old Testament. Islam, Houston said, embraced all of Judaism and Christianity when it was created.
"It all comes from the same place," he said. "Muhammad (Islam's central prophet) said Jesus (from the New Testament) is one of the prophets and Abraham (from the Old Testament) is one of the prophets."
