Islam and their interpretation of Jesus


I always find it weird that Muslims seem to have these ideas about Jesus and Christians that are not found in the Bible or anywhere else. For example, we know that Jesus was not a Levite, but I was listening to a program on the radio with Fr. Pacwa and he said Muslims for some reason, believe that he is.

Another thing I heard is that Muslims think Jesus was about to be crucified, but then instead, God gave someone else the “appearance” of Jesus, and sent him to die instead.

Islam came over 600 years after Christianity, so how do they presume to know something that Christians, especially those closest to Christ didn’t know?
