9th century Syriac Exegete and Apologist: Moshe Bar Kephas Commentary on Luke

Moshe Bar Kepha, as a churchman, exegete and apologist, lived in the time and place of the most troubled center of the Abbasid Empire, witnessing the consequences of its policies upon the Christian communities.ƒ†™ƒ¢ââ‚š¬…¡ƒâ‚š‚  The most daring policy was the Islamization policy of Caliph al-Mutawakkel (d. 861), under which Christianity was not merely assailed as a false faith, but also as a social evil.

Abdul M. Saadi is Assistant Professor in Arabic at Baylor University. He received his PhD, from Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, New Testament and Early Christianity, 1999
