MENARASIKAN KISAH-KISAH AL-QUR’AN DALAM RUANG HISTORIS (Studi Pemikiran Karel Steenbrink dalam The Jesus Verse of the Qur’an)

Abstract

The logical consequence of the revelation pattern which was annuled in the books of Qur’anic studies is that revelation (in this case al-Qur’an) seeks dialogue with the social-political dynamic of the Arab community. This thesis requires an understanding of the Qur’an depart from historical study of the verse where spesifically time and place of the verse was revealed. This model of interpretation has been aplied by Muslim scholars to a number of verses for getting a holistic meaning, but still not in the verses of the story. The accentuation of Muslim scholar interpretation tends to jump over ona stage then give moral legitimation. By that, Karel Streenbrink initiated the importance of historical analysis/historical explanation of the Qur’anic naratives. This study will discuss the patterns of interpretation and aplication of the theory of Karel Streenbrink in Jesus Verse of the Qur’an.
