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

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…

Jesus, the Word of God

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/mqK1yMnKiWs https://youtu.be/XBobGzrQocg 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 aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son…

Virgin birth of Jesus

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/vROvd_9Y11M Both the quran and the Bible teach that he was conceived of a woman only, his mother Mary, before she had known any man. The virgin-birth of Jesus, taught so plainly in the Bible, is no less clearly taught in the quran. In his Gospel Matthew (1.18-25) states that he was conceived in Mary of the Holy Spirit in fulfilment of a prophecy in Isaiah 7.14 (“a virgin shall conceive and bear a son”), while Luke also records the unusual conception, stating unambiguously that Mary was a virgin whom no man had touched when Jesus was conceived in her by the power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 1.26-35). In the quran likewise we find much the same teaching. In one passage we read: Behold! the angels said: “O Mary!…

Sinlessness of Jesus

Jesus in Islam
https://youtu.be/nU7e4iARP0M The Quran testifies to the exclusive sinlessness of Jesus While the quran tells us that other prophets have sinned, there is not a hint there, or anywhere else in Islamic literature, of sin in Jesus. An angel from God announced to Mary .-that she was to receive a “holy son” (19:19). The Quran relates an interesting story about the birth of the Virgin Mary. Her mother placed her newborn daughter and her future issue under a special protection of God saying: “Lord, verily I have brought forth a female [and God well knew what she had brought forth], and a male is not like a female; I have called her Mary; and I commend her to thy protection and also her issue, against Satan driven away with stones” (3:36).…

What is the position of Jesus in Islam?

Jesus in Islam
Why is Jesus the most mentioned person in the Quran? https://youtu.be/TyN943ithbc Exalted position of Jesus even in the Quran https://youtu.be/p_Oqs9jB5Wc 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…
