Teachings about Jesus in the Quran and Hadiths

Witnessing to Muslims
Why is it important to know what the Quran teaches about Jesus? There is a tremendous amount of material in its teaching about Jesus that could assist Christians to witness effectively to Muslims. The only two negative aspects of this teaching are the two denials of his deity and resurrection. The rest is all positive and much vital Biblical teaching about Jesus is repeated in the quran. The virgin-birth, sinlessness, ascension and second coming of Jesus are all mentioned in the book and are basic Islamic doctrines There are other teachings which, together with a series of very meaningful titles given to Jesus, make the final image of the man far superior to the dogma that he was nothing more than a prophet. Even a cursory analysis of the whole…

Does the Quran really teach that Allah is One?

God
Does the Quran teach Unitarian Monotheism or Tawhid? https://youtu.be/ad2WcdT0Mho?list=PLHjaRUn9mlITsCytPI2M4mdRYNQr3TrlI The Spirit is from God and part of Him, not part of creation. It is not a force. It can appear as a man and can be spoken to. He can also give life, a divine attribute. https://youtu.be/feIbgKFHvXA?list=PLHjaRUn9mlITsCytPI2M4mdRYNQr3TrlI Not only does the Spirit have divine attributes, he is also referred to using divine names. Therefore, the Spirit cannot be referring to Angel Gabriel. https://youtu.be/K_AD4E-KpP4 In addition, Jesus was also described in the Quran as a Spirit from Allah and as the Word of Allah. The Word of Allah is distinct from Him and uncreated. https://youtu.be/PIkz_0KuL6o

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/2JnFK_3ASRg Only Jesus has the title Messiah in the Quran The full Quranic  name for Jesus is Al-Masihu Isa – “the Messiah Jesus” (cf. Surah 4.157, 4.171). In fact we even read that when the angels first appeared to Mary they said of the holy child they had been sent to announce: Ismuhul Masihu Isabnu Maryam – “his name shall be the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary” (Surah 3.45). Even before the conception of Jesus, therefore, the angels gave him the one title that is applied to him on no less than eleven occasions in the Quran, namely Al-Masih – “the Messiah”. The strange thing is that, whereas the Quran unflinchingly attributes to Jesus the one title claimed for him by the Christians and rejected by the Jews, it attempts…

Second coming of Jesus according to the Quran

Jesus in Islam
What does Islam teach about Isa coming back? https://youtu.be/2yFUkgt0Ww4 It must come as something of a surprise to Christians to hear that the return of Jesus to earth is as much a basic belief of the Muslims as it is ours. Once again the vast majority of the Muslims of the world hold to this belief. As with the ascension the Quran does not treat the subject at any length and, as with so much of its teaching about Jesus, it is somewhat ambiguous. The one passage invariably brought forth to justify the doctrine is this one: And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): Therefore have no doubt about the (Hour), but follow ye Me: this is a Straight Way. Surah 43.61 The…
