JESUS AND HIS FAMILY IN M?TUR?D??S COMMENTARY: METHODS AND SOURCES

Abstract

Author(s): Murat MEM??

Ab? Man??r al-M?tur?d? is one of the most important scholars of Qur’an commentary and Islamic Theology at the first period of the thought of Ahl al-Sunnah. His views have been particularly influential in places where the Hanafi views are practised. While interpreting the verses about Jews and Christians, al-M?tur?d? exposes some different perspectives as well as common approaches of other commentators. Interpreting the Qur’?n with the Qur’?n, commentary with prophetic sayings (?ad?th), references to the discussions among theological schools and theological polemics with Christians are some of his methods and sources. In this article I tried to show the information about Jesus which al-M?tur?d? gave, through his methods and resources. At the same time, I have also identified his theological goals which he always held in the foreground when he interprets the verses concerning with Jesus.
