Islam and Jesus The Prophet

John Collins10/15/2012 7:41:00 PMWMB had a theology that differed from most mainstream and even non-denominational Christians. Were this teaching not in the Quran, we could even say that it was unique. But it wasn't unique.

WMB taught that Jesus had to see a vision from the Father, and He only did what the Father showed him in the vision. Multiple times throughout his ministry, WMB claimed that Jesus was a "super prophet."
Quote:
Now if you'll notice, my dear Christian friend, fellow citizen of the Kingdom of God, that Jesus testified while on earth, that He did nothing in Himself, that He only did, what the Father showed Him, by vision to do. Is that true? That's right. See? Only by what the Father showed Him. See? He said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, the Son can do nothing in Himself; but what the Father showeth Him, that doeth the Son."

He said, "The things that I do, shall you do also, and greater than this shall you do, for I go to My Father." Is that right? Do you believe so?
Now, you sick people, look here for a minute now. Do you believe that that is the truth, that Jesus said in Saint John 14:7--or--or I mean 14:12, "The things that I do, shall you also; and greater than this shall you do, for I go to My Father"? And Jesus plainly stated... Now, listen, and outside, I hope you hear. Jesus plainly stated that He could do nothing of Himself, but what God showed Him to do in a vision, that's what He done. Is that right?

The Quran mentions Jesus by name twenty-five times, while it only mentions Muhammad by name four times. WMB's "different Jesus" fits the description of "super prophet" perfectly as He is described in the Quran. From the virgin birth to his "healing campaigns and visions", the Quran seems to be the most accurate description of Jesus Christ according to WMB's doctrines.

In general Muslim belief, Jesus was the last prophet sent by God to guide the Children of Israel. In Islam, Jesus is a precursor to Muhammad, and is believed by Muslims to have foretold the Muhammad's coming.

The Quran also teaches that Jesus came to "confirm" the Law of the Old Testament, not Fulfill it as the Christian Bible describes. Very interesting when you consider that WMB taught the same.

Like WMB, the Quran teaches that God was NOT the son of Mary --even though the Quran states that Jesus was born of immaculate conception. In fact, they teach strongly against trinitarian religion -- even mentioning the "trinity".
Sura 5:72-73, 5:75 "They do blaspheme who say: "God is Christ the son of Mary." They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a trinity: for there is no God except one God Allah. If they do not desist from their word of blasphemy, verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them. Christ the son of Mary was no more than a Messenger; many were the Messengers that passed away before him."

Quote:

The virgin birth was a paradox. I do not believe that Jesus was any part of Mary. That was not His mother. It was a woman that God used for that purpose, a incubator to bear His Child.
