Who is Jesus?

So if the Messiah was to be the son of God. What was The prophet like Moses to be?

The Prophet like Moses was to be Jewish. Moses said, "I will raise up a prophet among your OWN BROTHERS". That means within the Jewish tribes... Both Moses and Jesus gave covenants and the ways of atoning for sin. Do you not see the paralell?

Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." (John 1:45 NIV) emphasis added

But do not think I will accuse you before the Father. Your accuser is Moses, on whom your hopes are set. If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me. (John 5:45-46 NIV) emphasis added

22For Moses said, 'The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you must listen to everything he tells you. (Acts 3:22 ; Deuteronomy 18:15 NIV) emphasis added

14After the people saw the miraculous sign that Jesus did, they began to say, "Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world." (John 6:14 NIV) emphasis added

On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet." (John 7:40 NIV) emphasis added

The Book of Revelation is false.

Apostle John, the one who wrote the Book of John, which Muslims consider inspired, wrote this book. How can one man be both a devout worshiper of Allah and a liar at the same time?

Let me ask this. Who do you say Jesus is? A liar, a madman, or the Son of God? No other options that are possible.

Jesus could not have been the Messiah or a prophet if he was not the Son of God. Jesus told his followers to depend on him for their salvation. If Jesus lied about being the Son of God, then he is a liar. And worse, because he commanded people to depend on him to get to Heaven. A prophet would lie so wickedly!!! But do you really think that the most blameless man without sin (which the Qu'ran upholds) would make the greatest lie?

Jesus could have been a madman. He could have 'thought' he was the Son of God. But would he really make some of the wisest sayings, perform miracles, and have such a strong foundation of Scripture if the man was really insane?

So if you deny the first two, then you must accept that Jesus is the Son of God. He was not a moral teacher or a prophet. He was the Son of God.

May God Bless You All
