Who is Jesus? Is Jesus of the Bible the same as Isa of the Quran ?
Updated: Mar 15
Muslims claim that their Isa al-Masih (Isa the Messiah) in the Qur'an is the same as our Jesus (or Yeshua) of the Bible. In their claim, Isa (Muslim Jesus) is the true Jesus. Therefore, it is common in their Daw'ah (proselytizing ) of Christians they use the tagline " Muslims love Jesus" to mislead ignorant Christians that the Muslim Jesus (Isa) is similar to the Jesus (Yahshua) of the Bible and hence, converting to Islam does not deny Jesus. Is this true? of course, this is not true. Islamic narrative about Jesus directly contradicts who Jesus is and his redemptive work. In short, Islam preaches another Jesus and another gospel.
For Christians, you need to understand why knowing Christ is essential. See the following links:
Why is Christology important?
The Muslim Jesus (Isa) is presented in a way in the Islamic narrative that is starkly different from the Jesus in the Bible. It is essential for Christians to understand the subject, in what systematic theology is described as "Christology" which is the study of the person of Jesus Christ and His works.
