Bible: An Islamic Perspective: Jesus


SKU: 4426 Category:


Jesus, son of God or Prophet? Jesus, though not as central to Islam as he is in Christianity, is revered by all Muslims. In this study, Jesus’ life and impact in Bible: An Islamic Perspective series compares the Jesus of Christianity with the Jesus of Islam through a detailed examination of the Biblical record, the Quranic Commentary. Many other classical sources are called upon for their witness. In the stories of Jesus’ birth, his miracle-working, and his special nature, Islam may differ in detail, but there is no broad disagreement until we reach the defining events of the crucifixion and their outcome. With a Quranic verse they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them (Q. 4:158), the Islamic view of the human Jesus separates from the superhuman Jesus of Christianity. The last section of the book reviews the Second Coming in Christianity and Islam, and the impact of eschatological beliefs upon Christo-Islamic relations. The volume includes introductory materials about Jesus, the Trinity and Mariolatry. The stories of Mary, her Scandal, Zechariah, and Job the Baptist are also examined.
