What Muslims Believe About the Cross

Most Muslims believe that death by crucifixion was not a worthy death for a good prophet like Jesus. Based on the Qur’anic passage cited above, the majority of Muslims in our day say that Jesus never went to the cross. It is commonly thought that He was taken up into heaven without dying and that someone else died on the cross in His place.

How Muslims understand Man and Sin

For Muslims, man is the high point of God's creation. Religious activity such as ritual prayer, pilgrimages, alms giving, fasting and reciting the Muslim confession of faith are at the heart of Islamic religious experience. But for Christians, sin is not simply a matter of making mistakes, but rather of living in opposition to Godly character.

Helping Muslims read the Bible

Muslims need to know that there are treasures within the Bible, our personal sharing with Muslims are dynamic events involving interaction. Psalm 19 is a good choice. I point out that this is the "Zabur" (Psalms) mentioned in the Qur'an.

How Muslims understand Gospel of Barnabas

Most Christians are fairly uninformed about Islamic beliefs. In a similar way, many Muslims do not understand or are ignorant of Christian teaching about Jesus. Muslims claim that Jesus did not die on the cross - such a death is considered to be unworthy of such a good prophet. They affirm that Jesus was taken up to heaven without dying.
