What does the Koran say about Jesus?
The Koran agrees that the coming of Jesus was an act of God.
5:46. And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah.
The Koran agrees to the virgin birth of Jesus. Jesus’ coming is supernatural. It is a miracle.
003.045 Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah;This is a clear statement that Jesus was born without a human father. Only God has the power to create, not an angel. Without a human father, Jesus must be the Son of God!
003.046 "He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity. And he shall be (of the company) of the righteous."
003.047 She said: "O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man hath touched me?" He said: "Even so: Allah createth what He willeth: When He hath decreed a plan, He but saith to it, ‘Be,’ and it is!
An angel who calls Jesus the “Christ”. Christ means “anointed one”, or Messiah.
Here, Muhammad rejects the Trinity, and the divinity of Jesus, but still refers to Jesus as the Christ, the Messiah:
004.171 O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.
How could Jesus be the Christ, born of God? Who is Jesus?
Muhammad had no miraculous birth. He was just a man. There was no angel bring glad tidings of Muhammad’s birth.
In the Koran, Jesus performs miracles. He heals the sick. He breathes life into a bird. Only God has the power to bring forth life.
003.049 "And (appoint him) an apostle to the Children of Israel, (with this message): "’I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah’s leave: And I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and I quicken the dead, by Allah’s leave; and I declare to you what ye eat, and what ye store in your houses. Surely therein is a Sign for you if ye did believe;
In the Koran, Jesus is without sin. There is a Hadith that says “Every child born of Adam is touched by Satan the day his mother is delivered of him with the exception of Mary and her son.” How could this be?
The Koran says that Jesus conquered death, and rose to be with God. The Koran states Jesus was not crucified, but that God “raised Him up unto Himself”.
004.157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:--
004.158 Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;
Jesus was raised into heaven. Muhammad died and lies as dust in Medina.
Muhammad rejected Jesus as the Christ. But God let some truth into the Koran. The Koran points to the divinity of Jesus, and to Jesus as a Messiah. One cannot have a sinless man, born of a virgin, a miracle worker, and the Christ, without accepting his superiority over Muhammad and all prophets.
Pray to God and seek truth. If you seek it, and you are willing to go where it leads you, then God will lead you to all truth. That truth is found in Jesus.
