"Say: Shall I seek Lord other than God, while He is the Lord of all things? No person earns any sin except against himself (only), and no bearer of burden shall bear the burden of another. Then unto your Lord is your return, so He will tell you that wherein you have been differing" (Quran 6:164)

"Whoever goes right, then he goes right only for the benefit of his ownself. And whoever goes astray then he goes astray to his own loss. No one laden with burdens shall bear another's burden. And We never punish until We have sent a Messenger" (Quran 17:15)

"And no bearer of burdens shall bear another's burden; and if one heavily laden calls another to (bear) his load, nothing of it will be laden even though he be near of kin, you can warn only those who fear their Lord unseen and perform prayers. And who purifies himself then he purifies for the benefit of his ownself. And to God is the final return." (Quran 35:18)

"If you disbelieve, then God is not in need of you; He likes not disbelief for his slaves. And if you are grateful, He is pleased therewith for you. No bearer of burdens shall bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, and He will inform you what you used to do. He is the All-Knower of that which is in the breasts (Of men)" (Quran 39:07)

"Did you see him who turned away {} And gave a little then stopped {} Is it with him the knowledge of the Unseen so that he sees? {} Or is he not informed with what is in the scriptures of Moses? {} And of Abraham who fulfilled (What God ordered him ot convey) {} That no burdened person (with sins) shall bear the burden (sins) of another {} And that man can have nothing but what he does (good or bad) {} And that his (man) deeds will be seen (By God) {} Then God will recompense him with a full recompense {} And that to your Lord is the end (Final reach) {} And that it is He (God) who makes laugh and makes weep {} And that it is He (God) who cause death and gives life " (Quran - The Star (53))

You see no need for any one to bear the burden of another, not even Jesus Christ

Every Prophet is a savior to his people, including Jeus Christ and Mohammad too.
