Who is "Jesus" then?

in response to reader comment: Question to Muslims

Submitted by Nura (United States), Feb 2, 2009 at 22:53

And my question to Muslims is that why do you believe in false prophets ..... because your prophets are not the prophets of the Old Testament and the New Testament.. For example, Jesus, you call him by his islamic name issa ibn Maryam and not yechou" !!

False prophets? I guess you mean Prophet, Muhammad (PBUH) is really the only one that we disagree on.

What an interesting and clever question. In all my life I have heard only one Christian who called "Jesus" Yeshua! What kind of silly question is this? Who is Jesus? Huh? Perhaps you do not believe in your own "Christ"? A false "son of God".Or perhaps Jesus was a nickname? Sorry, I couldn't resist.

But above all, for Christians Jesus is not a prophet but THE SON OF GOD

You are incorrect. If you would look up the word prophet, then you will understand why he is called so. Did he not make prophecies? Did he not warn his people of what is to come? Then he was a prophet! I guess you would rather him be a lamb or the bread of God.

And Muslims believe only in the KORAN and consider that the Old Testament and New Testament are corrupted. Tissue of lies.

I know Christians who believe that the Gospel is corrupted so what is your point? Believing that the Talmud and Gospel have been corrupted is only a matter of fact, it does not negate the true origins of the books. A Muslim must believe in all of the books of Allah, which includes the Talmud, psalms of David, and Gospel, in its original version of course.
