Islam vs. Christianity Debate: Jesus, the Cross and the Resurrection
Like Christianity, Islam is a monotheistic religion promoting the worship of one true God. Islam also highly honors Jesus (Isa) as one of God’s holy messengers. Nevertheless, Allah of Islam is not the same God that is worshiped by Christians. No Muslim would ever profess that Allah is the Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ nor would they tolerate the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. Likewise, the Jesus (Isa) of Islam is not the Christ of Christianity (2 Cor. 11:4). Islam denies Christ’s Deity, incarnation, crucifixion, and resurrection – essential elements of His identity according to the biblical Gospels. Who is right?
