Jesus and Mohammad

JESUS AND MOHAMMED

The objective of this work is to compare and contrast the lives of Jesus and Mohammed historically and to compare what impact the death of each person had upon his respective followers. Further this work will describe the ways each is worshipped by their respective followers and explain how their messages are being carried out in the world today.

There are both likenesses and differences in the lives, messages and worship associated with Jesus and Mohammed. The work entitled: "A Comparison Between Jesus and Muhammad" states the following differences: (1) Jesus rose from the dead - Muhammad stayed dead; (2) Jesus never fought - Muhammad fought many times; (3) When Jesus heard from God in the desert he went to be tempted and began his ministry with boldness. (Mark 1: 14-15) When Muhammad heard from God (through an angel) he cowered, was uncertain and wanted to commit suicide (Quran 75:1-5); (4) Jesus claimed to be God (John 8:24; 8:38) as well as a man. Jesus claimed to be the way, the truth, and the life. (John 14:6) Muhammad claimed to be a man; (5) Jesus spoke well of women but Muhammad said women were 1/2 as mart as men (Had. 3:826; 2:54') that the majority in hell will be women (Had. 1:28,301; 2:161, 7:124) and that women could be mortgaged.

When he was 25 years old he married a "40-year-old widow named Khadijah" (Ibid) and it was at this age that the first began to speak prophecy due to dreams that he had and this his wife believed were messages that came from God. He was rejected as a prophet in Mecca but he traveled to Medina and "became a religious and political leader."

Jesus was made know to man to be the son of God when he was baptized by John the Baptist and a voice spoke from heaven saying "this is my son in whom I am well pleased." Jesus' ministry was one of love, peace, and forgiveness and because of his love for mankind laid down his life so that mankind could obtain salvation.
