One wonders if that was intentionally inserted in an attempt to refute the idea that he is the Son of God.

I saw a Muslim evangelistic outreach recently where the evangelist was leading another to become a Muslim by reciting the shahada. And Zakariya and John, and Jesus and Elias: all in the ranks of the righteous: To them and to their fathers, and progeny and brethren: We chose them, and we guided them to a straight way.
However, the Bible teaches something far different. Though Jesus did function in the role of a prophet, he was vastly superior to all others. Not only is Jesus superior to every other prophet, he is superior to the angels Heb. Among other things, Muslim theology teaches that Jesus will return to Earth. However, in his second coming, Jesus returns as a Muslim and fights for Islam. He will descend to the earth. When you see him, recognize him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet.
He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizya.
Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. This could not differ more from the return of Christ taught in Scripture. When Jesus returns, he will fight, but not for the cause of Islam. Instead, he will fight against all who have rejected him—the eternal Son of God who died on the cross for our sin and rose from the grave Rev.
Further, Jesus will return and both the resurrected church and Old Testament believers will reign with him Rev. In Sahih Al-Bukhari , a story is told of individuals suffering in hell. They approach Adam, Noah, Abraham, others, and Jesus, making a request for intercession. Each of them points those seeking help away from themselves, including Jesus. Muhammad is said to be the only one who can intercede effectively before God.
This is a serious deviation from the true Jesus of Scripture.
One of the most important facts about Christ is that he is the one and only intercessor for sinful man. Since he is fully God and fully man who extinguished the righteous wrath of God for us; since he rose victorious from the grave; since he ascended to the right hand of the Father, therefore, he serves as intercessor. He alone is qualified for the role. And, if Jesus is not the intercessor, then all humanity is utterly doomed because no other individual in history is even remotely qualified.

And he was. The Truth comes from Allah alone; so be not of those who doubt. Sadly, this is an extraordinary christological error. The most important thing about Jesus is that he is eternal. He was not created. Jesus is God John , ; Col. Jesus is not said to be the Head of the Body nor the Husband of the Bride.
This is a major contrast to the Jesus of the Bible. The very reason he came to the world was out of obedience to God the Father for the redemption of his people John Since his Father had chosen a people, he came to redeem them Eph. Christ shed his blood for the church Acts Consequently, he is the head of the church Eph. The church is so united to him, and to each other, that she is rightly called his body 1 Cor. Christ keeps a pure, fierce, and loving commitment to his people, the church, just as a perfect husband would his bride Eph.
He is the ultimate and final prophet. There is a zenith and finality to the prophetic ministry coinciding with the Person and work of Christ which is also evident in the conclusion of revelation.

With the close of the canon and the end of the foundation age of the church also comes the end of the prophetic office. Thus, the prophetic office close with the apostolic age five centuries prior to Muhammad. However, Muhammad is said to be the ultimate moral example for humanity Surah Thus, one must conclude that Muhammad is morally and ethically superior to Jesus.
This, too, is a significant difference from the Jesus of the Bible. Though Muhammad is not discussed in Scripture so as to be compared with Jesus, it is clear that Jesus is unmatched morally John , Heb.
JESUS MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE | Right From The Heart Ministries
Being fully God and fully man, he is as holy, moral, and righteous as God Luke Hebrews In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering.
Jesus received holy spirit at his baptism. What purpose would this have served? We know why people are anointed, but what power could God give to Himself?
Spot the Differences
Hebrews For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. God cannot die. Romans and 23 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Hebrews and 11 10 In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering.
The Difference Between God and Jesus Christ
So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers. This would be absurd if Jesus were God, because then we disciples would be commissioned to do greater works than God does. John KJV Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
