What does Islam teach about Jesus?

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/bwO8b1eBX-8 Islam teaches that Muslims must believe in Jesus. It's important to recognize that the Islamic version of Jesus is not the same as the biblical or true version of Jesus. For example, in Islam Jesus did not die, he was not crucified, he didn't rise again, he didn't atone for sins. In the Islamic version of Jesus, he is merely a human being who's commissioned to be a prophet, just like we would believe Moses was merely a human being who's commissioned to be a prophet. Despite that lower Christology, it's still significant to understand that the Quran actually has a fairly high view of Jesus. For example, the Quran teaches that Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, that his birth was announced by angels, that he lived…

The Absurdity of the Muslim Jesus Claim

Jesus in Islam
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ijjmfDr8Tk There is this Islamic idea  that Jesus was a Muslim. I know it  sounds very strange, very absurd and some  people might ask why I'm even talking  about this. But  people believe in very weird things. It  is actually a fundamental Islamic  idea, very popular in the Muslim world,  propagated by Muslim preachers and  apologists,  that Jesus was a Muslim and that he will  come back  as a Muslim. What Muslims mean when they  say that Jesus was a Muslim  is that Jesus was misrepresented by  Christians,  that he was actually just a prophet who  called people to submit to Allah. And  that he was basically completely in  agreement with Islamic  belief, Islamic tradition and that he  would have  followed Muhammad if he had lived at the  same time.…

10 Surprising Miracles of Jesus In Islam

Jesus in Islam
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FpROtrUvWw Not just in Christianity but also in  Islam,  Jesus is seen as someone who did many  surprising and amazing miracles. Most people are familiar with Jesus  turning water into wine and walking on  water according to the Christian holy  book,  but what does Muslim texts have to say? Let's take a look at 10  surprising miracles performed by Jesus  according  to the religion of Islam. The first miracle  that we're going to be looking at  is Jesus speaking in the cradle. To  give birth to a child while being a  virgin  of course was a criminal act during the  time of Jesus  and the Quran details the way that Mary  was saved from being  charged as guilty for this by Jesus, who  was still a baby  in the cradle,…

Quran says Jesus is the word of God

Jesus in Islam
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBobGzrQocg Surah 4:171 of the Quran says that Jesus is his word,  Allah's word, which he gave to Mary. Not only is he the Word of God, it  says the Word of God that he gave to  Mary.  In order  for him to be given to Mary, he must have  been with God before he was given to her. That means Jesus was with  God as his word before he was given to  Mary. The second line further confirms  that. “a spirit from him” A spirit that comes  from Allah and enters Mary. If he's  the word and spirit from God, sent by God  to Mary, that means he existed with Allah  or God before he was given to Mary. That's number one. Number two. If Jesus is  the word…

Exalted position of Jesus even in the Quran

Jesus in Islam
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_Oqs9jB5Wc Muslims, let me ask you something. Is  Jesus more than a prophet? They said “No,  he's nothing more than a prophet.” “I see. Is he the greatest of all  prophets?” “Muhammad is the greatest.” I said, “Let's see if your Quran agrees.” I'm going to  take you to four references and ask the  question “Who is the greater, Muhammad or  Jesus, just starting with the Quran.” Surah 19:20 says  very clearly that Jesus was born of a  virgin and that's why everyone believes  that the Virgin Mary bore  Jesus. There's not a Muslim that  disbelieves that because they have to  argue with their own Quran. Was Muhammad  born of a virgin? No. Was Muhammad  born miraculously? No. So there's nothing  special about Muhammad's birth? But Jesus had a special…

Quran 4:171 never says that Jesus was no more than a prophet

Jesus is God
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNgGYkztGKw Surah 4:171 O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary… The words “no more than” is  not in the Arabic. It says Jesus son of Mary, the  prophet of Allah, the Rasul of Allah and  his word. Jesus was described as being “the Word”. What  does it mean “the word”? We've talked to  Muslims before all the Muslims agree the word is eternal. It says Jesus is  the word and in the Arabic it doesn't  say he was no more than than an apostle. On the contrary, it  rather indicates that he was more than  an…

Quran contradicts itself on whether Jesus died

Muslim reject resurrection
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eY-hFTU_F9w Surah 4:157 And because of their  saying “we killed Messiah, Isa son of  Maryam, the messenger of Allah but they  killed him not, nor crucified him but it  appeared so to them. And those who differ  therein are full of doubts. They thought they had killed him  but they killed him not. The image of  Jesus was put on another man. So it's implying that that  man died in his place. Muslims who read that verse  are very clear that Jesus did not die. The problem is obviously there are some  contradictions because then you go to  Surah 19:33  it's very clear that Jesus says of  himself “Blessed be me the day I was born,  the day I die and the day I rise again”,  present continuous. So Jesus…

Should You Believe the Gospel of Barnabas?

Muslim reject resurrection
Some Muslims appeal to the Gospel of Barnabas as evidence that God has made Judas Iscariot look like Jesus so that Judas was crucified instead. Should you believe in the Gospel of Barnabas? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJRLwMbVr-o One of the main differences and how Islam and Christianity view Jesus pertains to his fate. The New Testament claims Jesus died for our sins whereas the Quran states that Jesus did not die but God made it appear so, then took him to heaven (Surah 4:157). The Quran does not provide further details on how this occurred. This has led Muslim Scholars to speculate over the centuries resulting in two major views. One view is that God allowed Jesus to be crucified and made it appear he died. Mistaken for dead, Jesus was removed from…

Quran teaches that Allah deceived the Jews into thinking they killed Jesus

Muslim reject resurrection
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_EMG-t-D2s According to Ibn Kathir, a tradition that goes back to Ibn Abbas concerning the meaning of Surah 4:157 is the following: On the night of  the Lord Jesus’ betrayal, he was with  his disciples. The traditions vary - some say there are 13 disciples, some say  17, some say 19. Jesus, on the  night of his betrayal, asked the disciples which one of  them would volunteer to look like him,  which one of them would volunteer to  take his appearance, Jesus' appearance  on himself, die in the place of Christ. Whoever is willing to accept this  proposal to die in Jesus' place, Jesus  supposedly said he would be given  paradise. In other words, the disciples  were asked to look like Jesus in his  place and Allah will give you…

Crucifixion – Does Qur’an Deny It?

Muslim reject resurrection
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWWHb9C4t9c In recent times some television preachers have tried to argue  that Jesus never actually died on the cross.  Can this be true?  Let us begin our investigation by examining  whether the Qur’an does indeed deny the crucifixion.   Only one passage deals with the crucifixion.  Only one passage speaks to this issue.  Surah4:157,  “They” (the Jews,  speaking of the Jews) said in boast,  (notice that they were boasting something) said,  we killed Christ Jesus the Son of Mary,  the Apostle of Allah.  But they killed him NOT,  nor crucified him,  but so it was made to appear to them.  That verse says THEY,  they, the Jews,  the ones boasting,  did not kill him.  It doesn’t say he did not die.  Ask yourself the question,  out of more than six thousand…
