Who is the Muslim Jesus? “Isa”

The main focus of Christianity is Jesus Christ, while in Islam the main focus is Allah and the revelation given by Mohammad, the Quran. Though Jesus, called Isa, is part of the Quran, his role is one of being just a prophet, not the Son of God; he is one of many messengers or apostles. Mohammad is the "seal of the prophets". The Jesus of the Bible and Jesus of Islam are two distinct persons, though they seem similar. For some this might sound like an odd statement, but lets examine why its not. Since both Islam and Christianity accept Jesus as an actual person who lived, the person Jesus would have distinct aspects of his life. Since there was only one Jesus, contradictions between the Jesus of Islam and the Jesus of the Bible cannot be reconciled, since some of these contradictions are diametrically opposed to each other. The chart below illustrates some of these obvious differences, which clearly cannot be reconciled. Jesus cannot be the "Son of God" and not be the "Son of God". He could not die on the cross, and not die on the cross.




           Son of God

Jesus is not the Son of God, but only a prophet. Surah 4:171, Surah 9:30 Surah 10:68, Surah 17:111, Surah 18:4, Surah 19:35,88

Jesus is the Son of God, and a prophet. Matthew 27:53, Mark 1:1, Luke 1;35, Luke 22:70, John 1:35, John 3:18, 5:25, 20:31


Jesus is just a man, and not God. Surah 5:17, 75,116 Surah 23:24

Jesus is not only man, but God incarnate as proclaimed in the Old and New Testaments. Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-3

             The Cross

Jesus did not die on the Cross, but a phantom was killed in his place. Surah 4:157 Surah 3:55

Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world. Matthew 27:50, John 19:30, Mark 15:37, Luke 23;46


Jesus came to deliver the message of the prophets, who were before him. Mohammad like Jesus came to give the same message of Islam. Surah 2:136, Surah 3:84, Surah 42:13, Surah 5:46

Jesus came to die for the sins of the world, as the way of salvation. His death paid for sins. John 3:15-17

Therefore since both positions cannot be reconciled, we can clearly see the Jesus of the Bible and the Jesus of the Quran, cannot both be the same person. In addition to these differences, the Jesus Islam and the Quran have other differences, which can be clearly seen.
