The Jesus of Islam

Posted By on December 9, 2019


The perception of Jesus in Islam is non-existent to most Christians, I want to break this down because being an ex Christian myself, I know how many people have a misconception about this In fact, I myself was shocked when I found out Muslims hold Jesus in high regard American media puts out so much negative press about the religion that they are shocked knowing a peaceful figure like Jesus in the Christian faith is also a part of Islam Jesus is the central figure in the New Testament of the Bible, but he is also valued in Islam and holds importance in the Quran. Muslims believe Jesus to be one of the greatest prophets sent to Earth by the Creator. Muslims also like the Christians believe in the miraculous birth to the Virgin Mary known as Maryam in the Quran. She has an entire chapter dedicated to her. But there is one big difference in belief Muslims don’t consider Jesus or anyone for that matter to be the begotten son of God He’s strictly a human being. An incredible one, but in no way was he divine. Jesus was a messenger sent with a Holy Scripture for his people which affirmed the message of the previous prophets before him. Muslims believe God gave Jesus the ability to perform miracles. Aside from his immaculate birth, he also spoke as an infant, healed the sick, and revived the dead. Islam condemns depictions of Jesus and Muslims believe Jesus wasn’t crucified, but rather he ascended to heaven alive Muslims believe he will return to Earth before Judgment Day to restore justice and defeat the Antichrist

  1. I'm a Christian and in this case, Muslims are correct when they say that Jesus isn't God because the Bible doesn't teach this …..only corrupted Bible translations do this, the worst being the KJV.

    For the rest Muslims, like most of Christianity, are wrong about who and what Jesus is and about what the Bible really teaches.

    Jesus isn't God according to the Bible but a prophet sent by his God to earth and the first created angelic son of God who was transformed from his angelic state to that of a human being to deliver us a message and invitation and to free us from the bonds of slavery.

    =========================================================================

    The word "Father" in Scripture doesn't just mean a father that produces offspring with a woman through intercourse.

    It can also mean: "He that brings forth", "the originator of something".

    Jesus was brought forth by God as the first created angelic son of God.

    All angels are called "the sons of God" and are of the same substance as God is, being spirits.

    Jesus existed "in the form of God" before he was transferred by his God and Father into the womb of a woman called Mary to be born fully man.

    ========================================================================

    Philippians 2 verses 5 to 11

    5 You must have the same way of thinking which also was in Christ Jesus.

    6 Who, existing in the form of God (= (a) spirit), did not consider (contemplate) taking by force to be equal to God. (something Satan, also a spirit = angel, did try. Compare with Isaiah 14 verses 12 to 14)

    6 Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider taking by force to become equal to God.

    6 Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider taking by force to exist equal to God.

    =========================================================================

    7 Instead, he emptied himself, taking on the form (external appearance) of a slave and was made in the likeness of men.

    8 And being found in this fashion as a human being, he humbled himself, becoming obedient unto death, even death on a cross (stauros: wooden stake, post, pole).

    >>> 9 For this reason, God also highly exalted him and granted him a name that is above all names ( read Psalm 45 verses 6 and 7 below),

    10 so that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven, on earth and under the earth,

    11 and every tongue should confess (profess, acknowledge) that Jesus Christ is lord for the glory of God the Father.

    (einai: to be(come), being, to exist, to be present, lust after, etc… )

    John 6 verses 60 to 62

    60 When many of his disciples heard it, they said, “This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?”

    61 But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples were grumbling about this, said to them, “Do you take offense at this?

    62 Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before?

    ==========================================================================

    John 8 verse 23

    23 He (Jesus) said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not from this world.

    ==========================================================================

    John 3 verse 31

    31 The one (Jesus) who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all.

    ==========================================================================

    John 16 verse 28

    28 I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father."

    ==========================================================================

    John 1 verse 18

    18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten (G3439) son who is in the bosom of the Father, he has explained Him.

    G3439

    μονογενής

    monogenēs

    mon-og-en-ace

    From G3441 and G1096; only born, that is, sole: – only (begotten, child).

    G3439

    μονογενής

    monogenēs

    Thayer Definition:

    1) single of its kind, only

    ===========================================================================================

    Proverbs 8 verses 22-31

    22 Jehovah created me (Jesus) as the beginning (first) of His ways (actions) from the earliest (ancient) times, at that time I was made. (read Revelation 3 verse 14, Colossians 1 verse 15)

    23 Ages ago (in antiquity) I was cast (anointed, installed) as the first, before the earth.

    24 When there were no depths I (Jesus) was brought forth (born), when there were no springs abounding with water.

    25 Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I (Jesus) was brought forth (born, H2342),

    26 before He (Jehovah) had made the earth with its fields, or the first of the dust of the world.

    27 When He (Jehovah) established the heavens, I (Jesus) was there; when he drew a circle on the face of the deep

    28 when He (Jehovah) made firm the skies above, when He (Jehovah) established the fountains of the deep,

    29 when He (Jehovah) assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress His (Jehovah') command, when He (Jehovah) marked out the foundations of the earth,

    ======================

    30 Existing beside (near, in the proximity of) Him (Jehovah) as an architect (master workman), being His object of delight daily and rejoicing before Him all the time.

    ======================

    31 rejoicing in His (Jehovah') inhabited world and delighting in the children of man.

    ==============================================================================================================================

    We see in verse 30 that Jesus is called “an architect” and that Jesus existed beside (near, in the proximity of) Jehovah God.

    What did Jesus say?

    ==============================================================================================================================

    Point 1:

    John 17 verse 5

    5 And now, Father, honor (glorify) me beside (near) you (in your presence) with the glory (honor) I had with you before the world (earth) was created (existed).

    Point 2:

    Now we go back to John 1 verse 1.

    As I have shown you, John 1 verse 1 can be translated into different ways.

    Now let’s go to the middle part of John 1 verse 1

    John 1 verse 1

    1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with (G4314) God, and the Word was God.

    but it can also be translated as:

    1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with (G4314) God, and the Word was a god. (article "a" and lowercase "g", or: (a) divine (being), a deity.)

    ==============================================================================================================================

    Let’s look what the Greek word can also mean that’s now translated in most translations as the word “with”.

    G4314: at, near (to), by, to, towards, with, with regard to, directed at, by the side of, in the proximity of, etc.

    So we can now see that John 1 verse 1 can also be translated as:

    ==============================================================================================================================

    John 1 verse 1

    1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was near (to) God, and the Word was a god (or: (a) divine (being), (a) deity).

    ===

    1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was beside God, and the Word was a god (or: (a) divine (being), (a) deity).

    ===

    ===

    1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was in the proximity of God, and the Word was a god (or: (a) divine (being), (a) deity).

  2. Have you read the book :
    "Jesus : Man messenger messiah"
    I think you'd like it . You can download the pdf for free from the iERA website . Just type the title in and then iERA.
    It discusses the idea of Jesus in the religions and the contrasts between each, and most interestingly it talks about the Prophet Muhammad (saw) predicted in the bible.
