    When I pointed out that Jesus is an important religious figure to both Islam and Christianity, the Christians become outraged. I'm curious why that is.

    When I pointed out that the Old Testament, written in Hebrew and Aramaic, is almost completely Jewish. And since Jesus was supposedly Jewish, why do Christians get upset when it's mentioned that religious figure is also a prophet of Islam?

    10 brief points Christians should know about Muslims and Jesus

    Muslims believe that Jesus was born miraculously of a virgin mother and no father.

    Jesus will return before the end of the world.

    It's perfectly clear that I have no "mystical" beliefs. I view Judaism, Islam and Christianity as very similar. All religions claim theirs is a religion of "peace". Until you read stuff like:
    Jeremiah 48:10 NAB
    Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood.

    I know from the violence of the Old Testament, Jews aren't any more peaceful and in the Koran, it's almost a study of violence and torture.

    The bottom line, all three religions hate being compared to the other two. Why is that?

    Exactly! rdean making shit up. What an unusual notion. :lol::lol::lol:

    Newsflash:

    every rational Christian on Earth is fully aware that Jesus was Jewish. In fact, he was a rabbi. His parents were Jewish. The Mohammedans do recognize Jesus as a Prophet, but not as being at all a deity.

    There is no truth to the rumor that Jesus was a Catholic or an Episcopalian or a Baptist or a Seventh Day Adventist or a Mormon.
    He may have had some knowledge of some Eastern religious beliefs, however.

    Why does rdean find it necessary to make such obviously stupid and dishonest shit up?

    :confused:

    One is forced to wonder if rdean is anything but a fucktarded shithead.

    "it" ??

    You are beginning to sound like one of the assholes.

    Jesus was raised as the son of a carpenter and was very likely taught carpentry.

    But Jesus was also a rabbi. You do know what a rabbi is, right?

    Carpenter and rabbi: not mutually exclusive.

    Yeah. I kinda assumed that -- belatedly. Sorry to sound all preachy. I was just surprised that you would speak like that. I should have known better.

    -Joos view Jesus as "bastard"
    -Christians see him as divinity, but there is no single verse in Bible who prove this claim, he 's human who eat and prostrate and get tired, trinity was invented lately in 325.
    -Muslims venerate Jesus as a prophet who came as israelite savior but he has abolished some jewish rules like some hard "eating rules".

    Islamic view is the moderate opinion.
