Jesus in Islam

Jesus is not the son of God

Is Jesus the son of the God?

Is Jesus the son of the God?

This is a very important question. If Jesus is God then to worship Him is right, but if He isn’t then to worship Him is idolatry and breaks God’s commandment to worship Him alone.

So does the Bible teach that Jesus is God and should be worshipped?

‏Jesus is not the son of God ‏The language of Bible is metaphorical ‏For example Jesus said in Mathew 15:24. “‏I sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.”

‏Were Israelists animals? ‏-No, ‏But the language is metaphorical lost sheep means misguided servant of God.It’s the same thing with term son of God which means rightious servant of God.Metaphorically not literal ‏All prophets in bible called sons of God ‘Adam, who was the son of God.’

Luke 3:38

Jacob is God’s son and firstborn: ‘Israel is my son, even my firstborn.’ (Exodus 4:22) Solomon: ‘I will be his father, and he shall be my son.’

(2 Samuel 7:13-14) .Ephraim: ‘for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.’ (Jeremiah 31:9) Is God’s firstborn, common people are called the sons of God: ‘Ye are the children of the Lord your God’. (Deuteronomy 14:1) WHO IS THE FIRST SON OF GOD?. Genesis 41:51 says MENASSEH is the FIRST son of God! .Exodus 4:22 says ISRAEL is the FIRST son of God!.

Psalms 89:27 David is the first son of God

Psalms 89:27 says DAVID is the FIRST son of God! Jeremiah 31:9 says EPHRAIM is the FIRST son of God! Already Jesus explained to us this meaning clearly by using the term father which means metaphorically our one God -When Jesus said in John 17-20 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My father and your father….

so ,God is the father of all people not only Jesus metaphorically there for we can also find in Bible that even rightious women called daughters of God.God has no God.God is one,but Jesus has God.

Deuteronomy 32:19

And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.

Evidences from Qur’an and Bible

Acts 4:27
Truly in this city Herod, Pontius Pilate, the Gentiles, and the people of Israel were truly allied to your holy servant Jesus

Surah Al-Ma’idah  5:72
They have certainly disbelieved who say, ” God is the Messiah, the son of Mary” while the Messiah has said, “O Children of Israel, worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.”

Indeed, he who associates others with Allah – Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers.

It is not [befitting] for Allah to take a son

Surah Maryam 19:35-36

“It is not [befitting] for Allah to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, “Be,” and it is.
[Jesus said], “And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.”

  Surah Al-Ma’idah 5:116
And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah ?'” He will say, “Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.

Jesus said worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord

 Surah Al-Ma’idah 5-117
I said not to them except what You commanded me – to worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. And I was a witness over them as long as I was among them; but when You took me up, You were the Observer over them, and You are, over all things, Witness.

According to Islam, Jesus was born of virgin Mary, without father but this does not mean he is divine, we consider (His birth to be a miracle ) and that Jesus was not the son of God, nor God has sons

Conclusion

Simply, many people in Bible beside Jesus were called sons of God, such as Adam, David , Israel etc . so the term son of God must not be taken literally because it means pious servant of God , Great man.It does not mean literally divine son of God !. Otherwise the person who think like that will have to worship all men in bible who were called sons of God
