The Deeper Koran

I found Wright’s recent NYT article a powerful reminder of collectivized, and often misplaced, attachment.

Test your religious literacy:Which sacred text says that Jesus is the “word” of God? a the Gospel of John; b the Book of Isaiah; c the Koran.The correct answer is the Koran. But if you guessed the Gospel of John you get partial credit because its opening passage — “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God” — is an implicit reference to Jesus. In fact, when Muhammad described Jesus as God’s word, he was no doubt aware that he was affirming Christian teaching.
