The Quran, Good Friday, and Jesus

The Quran and other Islamic writings do describe Jesus as a man perfect and sinless. In fact, Jesus is more holy than Muhammad. But the Jesus of the Quran is not the Son of God, and Jesus was not crucified for the sins of the world. Muhammad said that Jesus was taken by Allah to Heaven and another person was crusified on the cross. This also means that Jesus in the Quran did not resurrect from the grave. The Jesus of the Bible and the Jesus of the Quran are not the same person. Textbooks will give Christian children the impression that the Islamic Jesus and the Christian Jesus are the same person in order to have the Christian student accept Islam as a legitimate religion.

That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;-
—Qur’an, sura 4 (An-Nisa) ayat 157-158[1]

The Hadith indicates that one of Jesus’ disciples volunteered to go in his place, and so Allah made him look like Jesus.
