Mohamed Kohia, Rockhurst University professor:The 'Star' asked for suggestions for future articles in this same "FAITH" section, I mailed in the following request:
No Muslim is considered a Muslim unless he believes in Jesus.
The Qur’an refers to Jesus as righteous (3:45-48), great prophet (5:75, 19:30-35), a humble servant of God (5:116-117), and the return of Jesus (Messiah) to Earth (4: 159). The Qur’an recalls his miraculous birth (19:16-21), his teachings, the miracles he performed by God’s permission, and his life as a prophet of God.
The fact that Jesus was born to a virgin mother does not necessitate that he is divine in essence or spirit, nor is he worthy of worship.
“Indeed, the likeness of Jesus with God is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust, and then he said to him: ‘Be!’ and he was.” (3:59)
The Islamic view of Jesus lies between two extremes: the Jews, who rejected Jesus and called him an imposter, and the Christians, who considered him to be God or the son of God....
The door to forgiveness is open to anyone who seeks it.
Syed E. Hasan, Midland Islamic Council:
Jesus (may peace be on him) is a highly revered prophet in Islam. Not only is he mentioned 27 times in the Qur’an (compared with 14 for Muhammad), but an entire chapter is named after his mother, Mary.
In fact, it may be very difficult, if not impossible, for a reader to figure out whether the following passage is from the Bible or the Qur’an.
“Mary asked: ‘How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me and I am not unchaste?’
The angel replied: ‘So it will be. Thy Lord says this is easy for me.’ So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place.” (Qur’an 19:20-21).
There are remarkable similarities between the story of Jesus and Mary in the two scriptures: Muslims, like Christians, believe that Mary was a virgin who miraculously conceived Jesus, and assert that Jesus performed a number of miracles...
I enjoyed reading the "Could you speak of the place Jesus holds in Islam?" article and would like to see a similar article done in "FAITH" that shows what Jews think of Jesus Christ and what Judaism teaches its adherents about Jesus.
Since the USA is supposed to be founded on Judeo-Christian religious principles, it would be enlightening to compare the main dogmas on Jesus Christ between Judaism and Christianity.
They haven't replied, nor do I expect them to, nor do I expect them to publish that request. It would be very costly to the paper's advertising revenue to ask such a simple, straight-forward question, thanks to the usual suspects that would savagely attack the paper for seeking TRUTH.
What place does Judaism hold in Jesus Christ?
If the Star ever answers my email--they won't--and decides to compare Judaism to Christianity, especially what the Jew Talmud says about Jesus Christ, hope they choose some choice passages, like this one:
Like Gittin 56b, 57a, which says JC is spending eternity burning in a pit of excrement.
Or Sanhedrin 106b, which says JC's mother was a whore.
And that Jesus was a demon, a blasphemer and of unclean spirit.
Or the passages that teach Jews to hide their hatred of Christians when they are around.
But I don't think the Star is going to publish those passages, since putting out that much TRUTH about the Judaic gangsters would be a form of suicide, since within days of trying to have an intelligent discussion of why Judaism portrays Jesus Christ as some kind of bastard demon, forever condemned to sitting in a hot pile of shit, all hell--no pun intended--would break upon the Star's offices.
Jew MSM promotes the homosexual lifestyle to 14 year old kids.
