Who Is This Man Jesus?

Since I briefly introduced myself in my earlier blog post, as well as the About section, earlier we can continue our conversation with a question that you might have asked and that is, “Who is this man Jesus? I have read about him in the Quran as Isa. Is that who you are asking about”?
Well, yes about Jesus who started His formal ministry in 30AD. But although Jesus of the Bible and Isa of the Quran are both viewed as prophets in their particular faiths, being Christianity and Islam, they are in fact two different individuals who had vastly different positions in their faiths. A major difference is that Jesus of the Bible was born and lived in what is now the Nation of Israel from His birth in Bethlehem till His death, burial and resurrection in Jerusalem in 33AD. Well, back to our question, “Who is this man Jesus”. We are given the answer in the New Testament or Injil.

Peter declares that Jesus Is the Messiah:

18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say I am?” 19 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, that one of the prophets of long ago has come back to life.” 20 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “God’s Messiah.”

Peter’s answer was exactly correct. The Lord God had promised in the Old Testament that He would send a Messiah for ALL mankind who would offer the gift of Salvation to all and giving instruction in the Truth of the Lord God’s revelation of His Love for ALL humanity.
