This week is way too involved to try and ask part of the question here. It wouldn't work without everyone having access to all of the reading that goes with it. So instead, a very oversimplified take on this week's topic:
What defines "religious experience?" Meaning, what is it that allows someone to look at an experience or event and be able to say that because of x, y, or z, it is a religious experience because that does not happen in any other type of experience.
Rules as always - no bible passages, must be universal to all instances of monotheism, not just one single faith.
And if anyone is really bored and wants to see the "big picture" of the week, look up Otto, Schleiermacher and Eckhart on what makes something divine.
