[USA / New York Times] What Jesus Can Teach Today’s Muslims ('Beware of False Prophets', 'I am the Way, the Truth and the Life', 'False Christs and False Prophets will arise and deceive many' - perhaps not what the NYT has in mind)

... Jesus claimed to be the very savior — the Messiah — that his people awaited. But unlike other Messiah claimants of his time, he did not unleash an armed rebellion against Rome. He did not bow down to Rome, either. He put his attention to something else: reviving the faith and reforming the religion of his people. ...
... As a Muslim, he did not agree with the Christian theology about Jesus, but he still was moved by Jesus’s teachings, which were relevant to a problem Abduh observed in the Muslim world. ...
... If Jesus is “a prophet of Islam,” as we Muslims often proudly say, then we should think on these questions. Because Jesus addressed the very problems that haunt us today and established a prophetic wisdom perfectly fit for our times.
More on the very Savior, Messiah, Son of God, Redeemer ... whose deity and crucifixion muslims continue to deny as they follow the strange god of islam and its false prophet along the broad way (sharia?) that leads to destruction at New York Times
