JESUS CHRIST (pbuh) Was Muslim even According to Bible.
Islam’* means *”the complete submission to God”*. Jesus (pbuh) submitted his will fully to God.
Jesus has not said anywhere in the Bible that I am a Christian or you call yourself a Christian, Jesus has not said on the Bible New Testament or Old Testament that he is a Jew. The Christian name is created by Paul and Barnabas after Jesus gone from the world (Acts 11:26)
You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.
And the Father ( God ) who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form.
And He was saying, “Abba! Father! All things are possible for Thee; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what Thou wilt.
Jesus therefore answered and was saying to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.
For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves.
For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
Jesus therefore answered them, and said, “My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me.
Jesus was a messenger of God. Jesus is no exception to this, he himself was also sent by God just like every other prophet was.
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Here we see *Jesus claiming he was SENT to the lost sheep of Israel.* Just like every other prophet, prophets were sent to a group of specific people, or their own tribe etc. We find Jesus in the same situation as he sent to a specific group of people, the lost sheep of Israel. Jesus being sent to make a strong foundation for the rest.
He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own authority, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him.
So it is crystal clear that Jesus was sent, he did not send himself. So just like all other prophets Jesus is sent, and he is sent to a specific group of people. Ironic Knight – Jesus (pbuh) prayed like a Muslim.
Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed,
My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.
Jesus (pbuh) prayed 5 times. Muslims pray fives times a day. The similar time like prophet Jesus (pbuh).
📔 Mark 1:35
Very early in the morning, *”while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
Muslims pray ‘Fajr’ prayer on that time.
After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone.
One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.
Muslims also pray *”Esha”* prayer at night and other important prayers at late night.
Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.
Muslims pray “Maghrib” in the evening, “Fajr” in the morning and “Dhuhr” at noon.
And at ninth hour in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
Muslim prays “Asr” in the afternoon.
During the -days- of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.
So During his lifetime, he prayed to God everyday.
Muslims prayed everyday too.
