The Prophet Esa(aws)
Jesus was born in Nazareth (could be Bethlehem) miraculously (i.e. withouta father) as the son of Maryam, during the reign of Tiberius Caesar, theRoman Emperor. When Mary, his mother carried the baby to her people,they questioned her and as a baby in her arms, he gave them the answer.Read the 19th chapter of the Qur'an called Maryam, in the following versesHe said: "I am indeed
a servant of God
: He hath given me revelation andmade me
a prophet
; "And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, andhath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live;"(He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable;"So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that Ishall be raised up to life (again)"! Surah 19 Verses 30-33Allah appointed
Isa (as) to be a prophet to the Children of Israel
; hepreached to the people what Allah revealed to him in His Book called the
Injil 
(
Gospel of the Kingdom of God
; not the Gospel according to Matthew,Mark, Luke or John, which were composed in Greek language by people wholived later on). Jesus preached to the Jews or the Children of Israel; hehimself was a Jew; he was a follower of Moses' Book, the Torah (
Taurat 
inArabic).
Jesus never said that he was the Son of God
(in a special sense);
orthat he was God
; he never said that his mission was to replace the Torahwith
Injil 
(the Bible) either. Rather he said that there cannot be any changein the Word of God. He came to fulfill what was incomplete in the previousbooks. But at the same time, he also said that his mission was not, to revealeverything to his followers; but he said that another would come in his place,after his departure, to complete the divine guidance. He called thatmessenger,
Paracletos
or
Perycletos
(Greek for "The Spirit of Truth" = theComforter): Read the Gospel according to John: “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall hespeak: and he will show you things to come. He shall
 
glorify me: for he shallreceive of mine, and shall show
it
unto you …” (John 16: 12 - 14)This prediction by Jesus of another messenger, who was coming after him,corresponds to the coming of the Last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Though Jesus
, by the grace of Allah was able to perform many miracles, thepeople, even his own disciples (according to the Gospel accounts), forsookhim at the critical moment. This was when he was about to be captured bythe Roman soldiers, at the instigation of the Jewish high priests. Christianscame to accept the belief, at the instance of one Saul of Tarsus (who was nota disciple of Jesus; though he later became St. Paul--the real founder of modern Christianity), that he was crucified by the Romans.
 
The Holy Qur'an
very clearly states that they did not crucify or kill him; butso it appeared to many of them. Someone else was crucified in his place; andthere were few witnesses to this.And (on account of) their saying, "We killed the Messiah, 'Isa son of Maryam,Messenger of Allah." They did not kill him and they did not crucify him but itwas made to seem so to them. Those who argue about him are in doubtabout it. They have no real knowledge of it, just conjecture. But theycertainly did not kill him. Allah raised him up to Himself. Allah is Almighty,All-Wise. (Surat an-Nisa: 157-158)Though the Christians insist that the crucifixion of Christ was witnessed by “thousands”, still their own Gospels say: “
There
were also women looking on afar off: among whom was MaryMag'dalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, andSalo'me; who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministeredunto him; and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem..” (Mark 15: 40, 41).This means that apart from the Roman soldiers, there were some womenwho watched the crucifixion “afar off”. That was all.
Again, Matthew says
: “And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus fromGalilee, ministering unto him; among which was Mary Mag'dalene, and Marythe mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zeb'edee's children.” (Matthew 27: 55, 56)Then where were his own disciples?
The Gospel says:
  “… and they all forsook him and fled. And there followed him a certain youngman, having a linen cloth cast about
his
naked
body
; and the young menlaid hold on him: and he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.” (Mark 14: 50, 51, 52) “
But
all this was done, that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled. And they that had laid hold onJesus led
him
away to Cai'aphas the high priest, where the scribes and theelders were assembled.” (Matthew 26: 56, 57)
Thus
, the Bible makes it clear that there were no witnesses among
Jesus'disciples to what happened after his arrest. This is because they hadall forsaken him and fled at the time of his arrest. Therefore, there wasno means of knowing what exactly happened after his arrest, exceptdepend on hearsay.
The Qur'an (the Word of God) categorically says that
Jesus was neithercrucified nor killed
. God saved him from such a shameful death. This isquite in keeping with the Biblical view that Jesus had prayed to God to savehim. Also the Bible says death by crucifixion is an accursed death.
All thissimply points to the fact that Jesus, who was a prophet of God, musthave been saved by God from the shame and curse of crucifixion.
