Our belief in god also keeps us away from all sorts of sins or bad deeds.
The Story Of Jesus In Islam And Christianity
The name Jesus was first found in Judaism as “Yeshua”. He was the religious leader according to Hebrew bible (old testament). The Christian community named him as Jesus that comes from latin word lesus. But Jesus in islam is a bit different. He is nothing but a human being and only a prophet named Isa sent to mankind by allah (god in islam). Jesus in islam and judaism is a bit same as they both are the ancient followers who believe in monotheism. Lets follow the stories below to learn about jesus in different religions who follow jesus as their god :
Jesus In Judaism
According to Hebrew Bible Jesus was a religious leader of Jews. He was born among Jews that is why he was called Jewish. Jesus used to lead his followers about God and his mercy. He taught his followers about worship of god and the values of good deeds. The thought of Jews about Jesus is totally different from Christians. They believe that Jesus was a divine spirit rather a person. Even he is not a god as their religious formula was same as jesus in islam. Islam and Judaism claims that Jesus was not a god and no one can be equal to god.
Jesus was a great religious leader in Judaism. He was always monotheistic that hurt the King of Roman Pontius Pilate. He claimed Jesus for his blasphemy attitude and ordered his soldiers to kill him. The roman soldiers went out to seek jesus. They got him out of his house and beat him very cruelly. At a time they tied him with a cross. Then they nailed his hands and feet. In this was he was kept hanging and then he died. But he remained a great leader in the heart of Jews people not as a son of god but as a religious leader.
Jesus In Christianity
Jesus is called messiah which was derived from Judaism. They called him messiah because he was the only king of Israel people on that age. The messiah then turned into Christ by the christian community. When Roman was polytheistic, the christian community was still trying to establish their religion. But the situation was so cruel that they had to loss their dearest Jesus. What if he claimed that he was a son of god. For his religious thought the roman leader wanted to kill him. The cruel King never wanted to bow down before him or his father (God). The king sent his men to arrest jesus and kill him. The death of jesus made Christians very upset as they had lost the god of mercy.
From this thought they created an image of Jesus and started worshiping him. Before his death Jesus promised that he will come back again on the day of judgment. This belief keep the Christians all over the world are aware of the their god and his mercy through their heartiest Jesus Christ. Although Jesus is in heaven but they feel that his drops of blood keep them always pure. They will be no longer sinner till they follow jesus and his guide. The bible says that Jesus soul was sent to hell after his death. He also said that his followers will remain in the “heart of earth” for three days and nights (Matthews 12:40). They must die and their soul will be free of sin after they stay in hell.
Jesus In Islam
The story of jesus in Islam is quite different from other two religions. The muslims (followers of islam) only believe that prophet issa (known as jesus christ) was sent by Allah (god in islam) for the welfare of mankind. On that time the jews disagreed to his proposal. They didn’t believe in Allah in stead of believing in Pontius Pilate (A power king of roman). But Prophet issa continued preaching islam in Israel and told them about the god he worships alone. This made many jewish to belief in him. It made the king very angry and he sent his men to bring Issa (Jesus) in court. There was an argument between the king and jesus that he (jesus) is blaspheming god and the religion.
Jesus didn’t accept kings words and left his court. This hurt the ego of the King and he sent his soldiers to kill jesus. They went out to find prophet in his house. One of the soldiers entered into his (Jesus) room but he didn’t find anyone there. A secrete of the story jesus in islam was not known to many who follow other religions. When Kings men on the journey to kill prophet issa (jesus). The almighty (Allah) raised prophet issa up from the earth to heaven. He (Allah) also turned the face of the soldier same as jesus. When he came out of the house, the other soldiers killed him. They thought that it was jesus and although he was swearing of god that he was not jesus.
Whatever or whoever is Yasua, Jesus or Issa. After all he was a great religious leader and a pure soul created by god. His death story makes us cry and the each drop of tears will give us mercy as long as we are get in touch with jesus and follow his advices about god and doing his worship. Thus we will a very peaceful and comfortable life in paradise (Jannah)
