Thesis

A Comparative Study of Moses in the Hebrew Bible and the Quran and their Exegesis of him

This thesis aims to look into why scriptural connections between Jewish and Muslim literature exist, particularly focussed around the character of Moses as he is focal to both religions. I aim to track his development in both religions and seek what his key character features are.
