A Christian perspective of Islam Jesus vs. Isa

Different Jesuses
"I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I
promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I
might present you as a pure virgin to Him. But I am
afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's
cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray
from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if
someone comes to you and preaches another Jesus whom
we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit
from the one you received, or a different gospel from
the one you accepted, you put up with it easily
(II Corinthians 11:2-4)
"I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting
the one who called you by the grace of Christ and
are turning to a different gospel -- which is no gospel
at all. Some people...are trying to pervert the Gospel
of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven
should preach a gospel contrary to that which we
preached to you, let him be cursed. (anathema) As we
have said before, so now I say again: 'If any one
preaches to you a gospel contrary to that which you
accepted, let him be accursed/eternally condemned.“
(Galations 1:6-9)

The Deity of Christ
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and
that life was the light of all mankind.”
John 1:1-4
“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his
glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of
grace and truth.”
John 1:14
The Deity of Christ
“Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among
you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can
you say, ‘Show us the Father’?”
John 1:14
“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times
and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,
whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the
universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation
of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided
purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is
superior to theirs.”
Hebrews 1:1-4
The Deity of Christ
“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something
to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking
the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found
in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to
death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest
place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of
Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and
every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the
Philippians 2:5-11
“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.”
Colossians 1:15
The Deity of Christ
“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form”
Colossians 2:9
“Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is
the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son
has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.”
1 John 2:22-23
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are
from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how
you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ
has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus
is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming
and even now is already in the world.”
1 John 4:1-3
The Deity of Christ
“Many deceivers who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh,
have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the
(II John 7)
“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The
god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see
the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of
God. For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and
ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, ‘Let light shine
out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the
knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.”
(2 Corinthians 4:3-6)
The Deity of Christ
“‘Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to
the Father except through me.’”
(John 14:6)

other name under heaven given to mankind by
which we must be saved.”
