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…

Why is Isa called “Al-Masih” in the Quran?

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/2JnFK_3ASRg Transcript of the video 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…

What does the name “Isa” mean?

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/QYe2RlpnUco I understand that Jesus is called Isa Al-masih in the Quran. What is the meaning of Isa according to the Quran? The Quran does not tell us the meaning of the name Isa. How does the Bible describe this name? In the Bible the name is Isa, the same as Yeshua, which means God Saves. The Injil tells us that Mary will give birth to a son and she has to give him the name Jesus because he will save his people from their sins.  Did Jesus teach that he will save his people from their sins? I thought it was the Apostle Paul who invented this teaching? Not at all. Jesus told his disciples that he came to earth to give his life as a ransom for many.…

Second coming of Jesus according to the Quran

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/2yFUkgt0Ww4 Transcript of the video 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 key words in the…

Death of Jesus according to the Quran

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/zybyE_Bfgnw I understand Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross. Muslims however believe that Jesus did not die but rather God took Jesus to himself alive. Is there a verse in the Quran that says that Jesus did not die? In the Quran it is stated that the Jews said “We have killed the Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary, the messenger of God.” In fact they did not kill him nor did they crucify him but it appeared to them as if they did.  Muslims interpret the phrase “it appeared to them as if they did” to mean that it wasn't Jesus who died but someone else died in his place? That's right. I believe there are prominent Muslim scholars who believe that Jesus died. Mahmoud Shalut was…

Jesus, the Word of God

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/mqK1yMnKiWs Transcript of the video https://youtu.be/XBobGzrQocg Transcript of the video Jesus is referred to as the word in the Quran Surah 3 45. Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah. 39. While he was standing in prayer in the chamber, the angels called unto him: “(Allah) doth give thee glad tidings of Yahya, witnessing the truth of a Word from Allah, and (be besides) noble, chaste, and a prophet,- of the (goodly) company of the righteous.” Surah 4:171. O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah…
