Jesus is not the sole property of Christians they say-or is he? This captivating story sets the Jesus of Islam.

Jeff Morton has lived in Liberia, Guinea, and now of all places, California. He is married, has four children, loves soccer and malted milk balls. Two Messiahs: The Jesus of Christianity and the Jesus of Islam Jan 18, 2012. A long time ago he taught second grade, but now is an adjunct professor at Biola University in the Cook School of Intercultural Studies. He teaches classes in missiology, world religions and Islamics. Two Messiahs is his first book, but he has plans for more in the same genre.

The Jesus Mysteries: Was the "Original Jesus" a Pagan God? is a 1999 book by British authors Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy, which advances the argument that early Christianity originated as a Greco-Roman mystery cult and that Jesus was invented by early Christians based on an alleged pagan cult of a dying and rising "godman" known as Osiris-Dionysus, whose worship the authors claim was manifested in the cults of Osiris, Dionysus, Attis, and Mithras.

Jesus is a figure who is loved and revered by billions of people the world over, yet there is much confusion surrounding the status of this colossal personality. Muslims and Christians both hold Jesus in high regard but view him in very different ways. How can anything be two complete opposites simultaneously? Islam teaches that God is always perfect. Islam teaches us to love and respect all the Prophets of God, but loving and respecting them does not mean worshipping them because worship is due only to God. Acknowledging Jesus as a Prophet of God and becoming a Muslim does not mean changing or losing your Christian identity.

In Christianity, Jesus is believed to be the Son of God and in many mainstream denominations the second Person of the Trinity. Christians believe that through his crucifixion and subsequent resurrection, God offered humans salvation and eternal life. He is believed to be the Jewish messiah prophesied in the Hebrew Bible, called the Old Testament in Christianity

Mary Kahil and the Encounter Between Christianity and Islam. The Christian community or as it is more commonly termed ‘the Church’ is usually thought of as coming into existence after the death and resurrection of Jesus

Mary Kahil and the Encounter Between Christianity and Islam. The Christian community or as it is more commonly termed ‘the Church’ is usually thought of as coming into existence after the death and resurrection of Jesus. The purpose of this essay is to argue that, at least for Luke, the Church comes into existence during the ministry of Jesus. In Luke's presentation of the disciples and in his discussion on discipleship it is his intent to set before his. readers a model Christian community.

Jesus Rejected in his Hometown of Nazareth ^ Butz, Jeffrey. The brother of Jesus and the lost teachings of Christianity. Rochester, Vermont: Inner Traditions.

Jesus Rejected in his Hometown of Nazareth. Deliverance from the curse of a broken heart and rejection through the power of Jesus Christ. Overcome Rejection! Men & Women Identify Relationship & Dating Issues. For two thousand years, a central wish of Christianity was to be the object of desire by Jews, whose conversion would demonstrate their acceptance that Jesus has fulfilled their own biblical prophecies. No Jew accepts Jesus as the Messiah. When someone makes that faith commitment, they become Christian.

Muslims love Jesus. When you meet a Muslim, you meet a person who loves Jesus. Muslims will tell you a true Muslim must love Jesus. Jesus is not the sole property of Christians they say--or is he? This story sets the Jesus of Islam, `Isa ibn am-Maryam (Muhammad's seventh century conception of the first century prophet and Messiah), in direct conversation with the first century, historic Jesus of Nazareth. The reader encounters `Isa and Jesus on a long walk from the little town of Emmaus to Jerusalem, a walk filled with conversation, questions, brief interaction with others, and observations from each man about the other. In the end, it is clear to the reader who Jesus is in both Islam and Christianity.
  • This is a helpful book which shows the contrast between the Isa the messiah of Islam and Jesus of Nazareth. You may be surprised to see the similarities initially, but as the book progresses, you will see that they are two very different people who cannot be reconciled. One is a man who never died and was not God the Son. The other is God the Son, who died on the cross for our sins. These are helpful concepts.

  • Jeff is an old high school chum of mine. He was brilliantly gifted then and even more so now because of his years of first-hand experience in teaching and leading muslims to Jesus. Jeff and his wife have surely built up much treasure in Heaven.
    Thanks, Jeff, for the great book. Loved your style & format!!

  • This book uses a unique literary device to compare what Christians and the Bible know and believe about Jesus with what Muslims and the Quran say about Jesus. The differences are extensive and critical. But the book is so readable, never stuffy or scholastic, that the reader is eager to continue the journey with the two Messiahs.

  • Couldn't find a true meaning of this book. Well written though. I would still recommended it! Also read it for self edifying.

  • A very interesting way of presenting a comparison of Jesus and Mohammed. Good information.

  • Good decision to buy

  • Two Messiahs is an important book and innovation of a `new' genre of education in Muslim Ministry. Prof. Jeff Morton has turned a corner on not only how we learn, through stories, but how enjoyable it is to learn, about a deeply complex subject of apologetic and theological comparisons in Islam and Christianity. I cannot think of a more enjoyable read for new students, missionaries and apologists attempting to grasp the complexities of discourse happening in Muslim-Christian relations and evangelism. The reader learns not only the theological disputes but how one might discuss the issues charitably modeled in the fictional expressions of the Two Messiahs `isa' and `Jesus' along a road that has divided Muslims and Christians for 1300 years! Having known and worked with Morton in i2 Ministries for over ten years now, he has done the scholarly and academic research which makes this simple story so effective. I highly recommend it to readers at all levels.

  • Really good but if you have no initial understanding of Islam you may spend a lot of time reading the end notes. Which may not be a bad thing
