I am concerned as someone living in the UK about the way that the media and educational institutions here and abroad are increasingly accepting the Islamic belief that Jesus was a Prophet.
It is established that a prophet is a normal man who receives voices from an angel (usually Gabriel) and commits these revelations to paper.
Jesus by this definition was not a prophet, Jesus as we read from His teachings and actions was no less than God Himself taking the form of a human being.
Jesus lived among us not knowing his Godhead until John the Baptist initiated Him and opened His spiritual vision. Jesus was merged in God and was God; “I and the Father are One.”
My main concern is that Muslims having established the Jesus Blasphemy as a fact now repeated by ignorant Christians and particularly securalists, I am now hearing Muslims saying that “Yes, Jesus was a prophet but He was not as great a prophet as Mohammed”, despite the fact that the teachings of Jesus are on a much higher spiritual level than Mohammed.
