Yes, Jesus is mentioned in the Koran. Muslims love to tell us that when they try to convince us that their religion is peaceful. What they neglect to mention is their version of Jesus and his role in Islamic prophecy which is to kill those who reject Allah. No wonder they have such high esteem for Jesus, that is, their version of Jesus.
And BTW, our two religions are not one. We do not worship the same God as some would suggest. There is only one way to God, and that is through Jesus Christ, Not a word about Mohammed in John 14:6..
Read from Weasel Zippers:
One was the son of God who preached peace and love while the other was a 7th century warlord whose armies committed unspeakable atrocities. CAIR is lucky Christians don’t go on bloody rampages over blasphemy.
Jesus and Muhammad are Brothers — Ibrahim Hooper
During the Christmas season, Christian families seek to maintain a focus on Jesus and his legacy.
Many of our Christian brothers and sisters may be surprised to know that Muslims love and revere Jesus as one of God’s greatest messengers to mankind, just as we love and revere the Prophet Muhammad, may peace be upon them both.
The Prophet Muhammad sought to erase any distinctions between the message he taught and that taught by Jesus, whom he called God’s “spirit and word.”
Prophet Muhammad said: “Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all people to Jesus, the son of Mary. The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.”
“Behold! The angels said: ‘O Mary! God gives thee glad tidings of a Word from Him. His name will be Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and in (the company of) those nearest to God.’”
