Confluence and Conflict in the Qur'anic and Biblical Accounts of the Life of Prophet Musa

Opeloye, Muhib O. (1990)


The Article compares the qur'anic and biblical presentations of Moses. Though the Qur'an does not set out the prophet's life chronologically, a chronological account can be constructed from the various passages. It can be seen that this is very similar to the life of Moses as told by the Bible. The Article nevertheless lists seven points of dissimilarity. These he attributes to the different circumstances in which the message was recorded. The similarities, he suggests, indicate a common source and origin.
