Abstract

ALMIRZANAH, Syafa'atun. Many ways to God, many ways to salvation (A conversation on Isaiah 56:1-8 with Islamic tradition). Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2021, vol.77, n.2, pp.1-10. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v77i2.6231.

Salvation is the objective of every religious tradition. Christian tradition claims Jesus as the particular redeemer, as he is viewed as the only one who reveals God, truly and fully. Thus, Jesus can be seen as the only way to Salvation. The question then arises, what about other people who do not follow Jesus, instead they follow prophet Muhammad or some other religious figures whom they believe that God has sent to save them? How then, the relationship between Christianity and other religions? By the study on Isaiah, this article is an interreligious conversation on the problem of salvation both in Christianity and Islam. One of the theological points of Isaiah is salvation, and it is also the Christian message. Isaiah is analysed from a hermeneutical approach and then the Qur'anic perspective is presented in conversation with Isaiah. CONTRIBUTION: This article speaks for multidiscipline, inter-discipline and transdisciplinary approaches of religious studies in the global theological field. From a multidisciplinary theological perspective, it reflects on the textual and hermeneutical studies within the Abrahamic religions as revealed in the Judaistic scriptures, the Old and New Testament, and the Qur'an

Keywords : salvation; Christianity; Islam; Isaiah; Qur'an; dialogue.
