Prophet Jesus  

× Read More  |  Close Jesus is designated a Muslim Prophet for two reasons:
   1.   Monotheism - Jesus preached God's oneness
   2.   Submission - Jesus submit himself to God's commands
   3.   Monotheism + Submission = Muslim - Anyone who believes in one God and submits themselves to God, is in essence, a Muslim

Jesus was a prophet of God sent to guide the children of Israel with a new scripture, the Injil (Gospel).

Jesus was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. The Quran states that Mary gave birth to Jesus without a man having touched her

He was made a prophet when he was 30, and he did his duty as a prophet for three years. He was the last prophet sent to the children of Israel.

Muslims believe that Jesus will return to earth near the end of time to restore justice and defeat the Anti-christ.

Q&A (36) | JESUS
Jesus is clear the Father is greater than himself
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
The early Jewish-Christians such as the Ebonites, the Cerinthians, the Basilidians, the Capocratians, and the Hypisistarians. The Arians, Paulicians and Goths also accepted Jesus as a prophet of God.

Even in the modern age there are churches in Asia, in Africa, the Unitarian church, the Jehovah's witnesses, and even the majority of todays Anglican Bishops do not worship Jesus as God.
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
Clement of Alexandria in 215 AD first used the word for the Old Testament. His student Origen (223 AD) used 'the books' to describe all the scriptures.
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
No serious historian doubts Jesus actually lived and died.
  • Tacitus (Annals I5.44.3) wrote early Christians were blamed by Nero fir the fire in Rome in 64 AD
  • Suetonius (Claudius 25.4) wrote debates about how Jesus led to Emperor Claudius expelling Jews from Rome in 49 AD
  • Pliny (Letters I0.96) wrote to Emperor Trajan around 111 AD for advice on the people who worship 'Christ as a God' in the Asia Minor region
  • Rabbinic Traditions (bSanhedrin 43.a) state Jesus of Nazareth was executed before he practised sorcery
The above historical and diverse evidence from Roman and Jewish opponents is significant enough to prove the existence of Jesus.
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
The resurrection is the most controversial creed issue facing Christianity today. There are numerous explanations for the resurrection, all of which are contested. There is no concensus if Jesus' tomb was found empty or not; whether disciples saw anything or not; even if anything happened or not.
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
Paul does not show any interest in the life and career of Jesus'. Instead his writings depict someone fixated on the death and resurrection of Jesus, the man he calls 'the Lord'.
And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Jesus was sent and approved by God.
Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
Although the King James Version (KJV) Bible claims "his Son Jesus". Modern, more reliable Bible translations use "his servant Jesus" for this verse.
The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
What was the most important belief for Jesus? Jesus was a Unitarian who held to the sacred Jewish creed, the Shema which he devotionally recited daily:

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Deuteronomy 6:4-5 / Leviticus 19:18
Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
Yes
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
When read in context with previous verses 22-30, Jesus makes a distinction between himself and the Father. 'My Father who has given them to me, is greater than all'. Therefore, Jesus and the Father are not one in person, for the Father must be a distinct person from the Son, and the Son a distinct person from the Father. The use of the verb plural, "I and [my] Father", (esmen) , "we are one" is in nature and essence.
I and the Father are one
The Jews were mistaken. Jesus did not claim to be God, claim divinity or commit blasphemy. In the next verse (John 10:34), Jesus tells the Jews to read their own books, Psalm 82:6 where men in power, eminence, dignity, government, judges, magistrates, in high office posts are called Gods too. i.e. the term God does not literally mean GOD.
The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God
There is no doubt the Jewish religious leaders of Israel were responsible for Jesus' death. The Romans carried out the actuall crucifixion under the authority of Pontius Pilate.
Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done. Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. And one of them, named Caiaphas (Jewish high priest), being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
Jesus confirmed God was greater then him
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I
Jesus makes a distinction between himself and God here
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
This verse 28 is a statement by Doubting Thomas and is used to demonstrate that Jesus was viewed as God, and therefter worshipped as one.

In the earliest manuscript, Papyrus66, the words "and my God" are missing. So verse 28 reads "And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord".

It appears that later bible scribes came across a gap in the manuscripts and using guesswork and speculation, filled it with the words "and my God".

Unfortunately, it is impossible to know what the original words in the papyrus were.
And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God
Yes
Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
Yes
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
Jesus confirms he is a man. This was the perfect opportunity for Jesus to claim he was a diety and greater than a man.
But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
Jesus was circumcised eight days after he was born
And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
Jesus said that only God is good alone.
As Jesus started on His way, a man ran up and knelt before Him. 'Good Teacher,' he asked, 'what must I do to inherit eternal life?'

Why do you call Me good? Jesus replied, No one is good except God alone.
Yes
And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
Jesus' brothers were married. It is likely that Jesus had a wife for the following reasons:
  • Pious 1st century Jews took God's commandment to Adam and Eve to 'multiply' seriously
  • No evidence to suggest Jesus was celibate
  • As a future king of Israel, Jesus would never have been celibate
  • He was close to his companion Mary Magdalene - Gospel of Philip has Jesus kissing Mary on the lips
Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
Many Christians believe that Jesus abolished the Old Testament dietary laws. The dietary interpretation of Jesus' words (i.e. swine pig consumption) does not exist in the Textus Receptus Bible, the authoritative Greek New Testament text that was accepted by the Christian Church until about 100 years ago.

This parenthetic interpretation of Jesus words was obviously a comment that some Bible scribe wrote in the margin of the text. Later scribes accidentally or deliberately incorporated the marginal comment into the text itself, so the statement appears only in corrupted texts.

But the statement does not appear in the Textus Receptus, so the KJV says nothing about Jesus "declaring all foods clean."

God had clearly prohibited pig, swine and pork in the Old Testament. This verse was over whether or not 'unwashed hands' caused clean food to become unclean.
Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats?

Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
To love God with all your heart and soul
One of them, an expert in the Law, tested Him with a question:

Teacher, which commandment is the greatest in the Law?

Jesus declared, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind'
Some disciples did doubt Jesus' resurrection of Jesus, based on the text from Matthew 28:17
Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted
Yes
Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
The resurrection of Jesus is of crucial importance to Christian doctrine. The Christian religion was founded many years after the death of Jesus based on the beliefs in his resurrection. Put simply, if there was no resurrection story, their would be no Christianity.
And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
To attain salvation, Jesus insisted on his followers keeping the commandments, by obeying the Old Testament Law.
And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
Kosher was based on Biblical precepts such as Leviticus 11, Jesus would have observed them because, Jesus fully obeyed the Law of Moses under which he lived and died.

There is no doubt that Jesus lived as a Jew, thus fulfilling the obligation of every Jew to "keep kosher" and the same can be said for all of the twelve disciples.
For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it be received with thanksgiving:
Jesus was responsible for killing and destroying the people who did not remain faithful. Surely he could have forgiven them?
Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
Jesus denied his message would bring peace on the earth.
Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Jesus said his message would not bring peace to a family, but may cause disunity and the breakup family members
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Jesus fell on his face and prayed
And he [Jesus] went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt

Jesus in the Torah

Torah is the first 5 books* of the Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

Jesus in the Psalms

Psalms is the third section of the Hebrew Bible. Many of the Psalms are linked to David.

Jesus in the Bible (Old Testament)

The Old Testament consists of 39 books* including the Jewish Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy)


IMPORTANT NOTE: Whilst the Bible OT is acknowledged by CHRISTIANITY, Christians today are more observant of the Bible NT version

Jesus in the Bible (New Testament)

The New Testament (Christianity) consists of 66 books*. 39 books from the Old Testament, and 27 additional books including Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
3 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
4 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
5 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
6 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
7 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
8 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
9 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
11 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;
12 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
13 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
14 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
15 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
16 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
17 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.
18 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
19 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
20 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
21 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
22 And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever.
23 Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about him, he gave commandment to depart unto the other side.
24 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
25 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
26 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
27 And, behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus: and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts.
28 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
29 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
30 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
31 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.
32 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
33 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
34 And Jesus arose, and followed him, and so did his disciples.
35 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
36 And when Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the minstrels and the people making a noise,
37 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us.
38 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
39 And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.
40 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
41 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
42 And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.
43 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:
44 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
45 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
46 At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.
47 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
48 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
49 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
50 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
51 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
52 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.
54 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.
55 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,
