Jesus prominent in Quran

This paper has published letters regarding Jesus Christ’s teachings in the Bible. There also are many mentions of Jesus Christ in the Quran. Only a few verses are quoted here for brevity. There is much more in the Quran about Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is considered a major prophet and messenger of God in the Quran. Quran is the holy book of Islam, revealed by God to the prophet Muhammad during the 23 years of revelations from about 610 to 633 A.D. Islam is one of the three Abrahamic religions. The other two are Judaism and Christianity.

Jesus Christ’s birth was miraculous as described in the Quran:

“Behold! the angels said: ‘ O Mary! God gives you glad tidings of a word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter with those nearest to God; he shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity, and he shall be of the righteous’. She (Mary) said: ‘O my Lord! how shall I have a son when no man has touched me?’ He said: even so: God creates what he wills: when he has decreed a plan, he just says to it: ‘be’ and it is! And God will teach him the book, and wisdom, and Torah and Gospel.” (Chapter 3, verses 45-48)

Jesus Christ’s mission, message and his miracles described in the Quran are as follows:

“And (appoint him) a messenger 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 by God’s permission; and I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and awaken the dead by God’s permission; and I declare to you what you eat, and what you store in your house. Surely therein is a Sign for you if you believe; (I have come to you) to attest the Torah, which was before me, and to make lawful to you part of what was forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord, so fear God and obey me. It is God who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him. This is a way that is straight.” (Chapter 3, verses 49-51)
