Answer The answer to the uestion “are God and Jesus the same person?” really depends on what is meant by the same person If this uestion means to ask “Is Jesus really God?” or “Is Jesus God in the flesh?” then the answer would be “Yes Jesus is fully divine He has all the attributes of God” see Colossians Jesus In The uran uran Verses About This post is a collection of ayat about Jesus in the uran In the uran Jesus is referred to as 'Isa alayhi salam He's an important figure in both the Abrahamic religions of Islam and Christianity Jesus in the uran is mentioned a lot of times throughout You can read and reflect on ayat about Jesus in the uran below O you who have believed be supporters of Allah as when Jesus the Jesus and the Disinherited Thurman Howard “Jesus and the Disinherited is the centerpiece of the Black prophet mystic’s lifelong attempt to bring the harrowing beauty of the African American experience into deep engagement with what he called ‘the religion of Jesus’ Ultimately his goal was to offer this humanizing combination as the basis for an emancipatory way of being moving toward a fundamentally unchained life that is Reasons The Story Of Jesus Might Be An Whether a person called Jesus Christ ever actually existed or not the story attributed to Him is largely although unofficially agreed by most atheists to be an allegory for the yearly journey of the SunWritten accounts can be found that predate the lifetime of Jesus by thousands of years and each draws from a previous version essentially telling the same story right back to ancient times Jesus in Islam What Does the uran Say? In the uran there are many stories about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ called 'Isa in Arabic The uran recalls his miraculous birth his teachings the miracles he performed by God's permission and his life as a respected prophet of GodThe uran also repeatedly reminds that Jesus was a human prophet sent by God not part of God Himself Jesus Drives the Money Changers From the Temple Jesus was so filled with anger at the desecration of the holy place that he took some cords and wove them into a small whip He ran about knocking over the tables of the money changers spilling coins on the ground He drove the exchangers out of the area along with the men selling pigeons and cattle He also prevented people from using the court as a shortcut As he cleansed the Temple of Paul Jesus Monroe

Jesus' opponents usually identified REVIEW AND CRITIUE Wright N T Jesus and the Victory of God Christian Origins and the uestion of God 2 Minneapolis Fortress 1996This work is the second volume of a N T Wright’s six volume series entitled “Christian Origins and the uestion of God” Wright firstly critiues the misguided “first uest” of historical Jesus that gives no real Jesus but a reimagined Jesus conformed to modern expectations Secondly Wright critiues the reductionistic “new uest” of historical Jesus that only begins to acknowledge the significance of eschatology in Jesus’ faith but fail to see his historical Jewish context The “authentic” historical Jesus according to Wright is in line with the “third uesters” who takes seriously the Jewishness of historical Jesus Wright does not share the radical skepticism of modern critics that deny the significance of historical Jesus nor is he daunted by the accumulation of varying material about Jesus that becomes available in our day’s knowledge base He believes that real knowledge of the historical Jesus is possible with his optimistic version of critical realism His motive is both apologetic and historian if we can know much about this Jesus in the history then we can revitalize our faith in the twenty first centuryAs a historian Wright insists that every word and every act of Jesus must be encoded or decoded against the uniue historical and cultural context of the first century Judaism in the Greco Roman world It was this very Judaism that Jesus was interacting challenging and confronting Wright is sensitive to differentiate “how does Jesus fit into the Judaism of his day?” from “how does Jesus uniuely different and radically challenging to the Judaism of his day?” As Wright has demonstrated in the first volume of the series he believes that the “first century Judaism can be understood only within a climate of intense eschatological expectation” 96 The central feature of this eschatological expectation according to Wright’s historical reconstruction is the long awaiting covenantal fulfillment of restoring the Israel from the exile If we consistently interpret and reinterpret Jesus through the lens of “Israel’s restoration from the exile” we will find a new portrait of Jesus somewhat different from the traditional portrait of Jesus for centuries in the Western world The “authentic” portrait of Jesus must embrace this Jewish hope making it thematic for his own Messianic vocation Here are the syntheses of Wright's portrait of the “authentic” historical Jesus 1 Jesus’ beliefs are summarized in terms of the three most fundamental Jewish beliefs monotheism election and eschatology2 Jesus believed that the coming kingdom of Israel’s god would bring about the real return from exile the final defeat of evil and the return of YHWH to Zion 3 Jesus told stories as the most effective way to subvert and challenge the various versions of the first century Jewish hope for the eschatological kingdom 4 Jesus saw himself than a prophet no less than the public persona of a prophet but he envisaged his work as bringing Israel’s history to it fateful climax he was inaugurating the kingdom of Israel’s god 5 Jesus’ idea of Messiah is thoroughgoing Jewish in character who will be commissioned by YHWH to end the injustice of the world 6 The difference between the beliefs of Jesus and those of thousands of other Jews of his day amounted simply to this he believed also that all these things were coming true in and through himself 7 Jesus’ idiosyncratic vision of the eschatological kingdom was challenging contradictory and offensive to the Jews 8 Jesus showed how to live a new life as the new way of being the new Israel9 Jesus refined and reinterpreted the symbols of Judaism pointing toward himself 10 Jesus’ own symbols concerning the kingdom a restored land a restored people a redefined family a redefined Torah a rebuilt temple centered on the theme of returning from exile 11 Jesus understood his particular task was to offer a symbolic encodingdecoding of this entire theology and expectation in terms of his own life and work 12 Jesus as a dangerous political liability who defied minimized and spoke against such Jewish identifying symbols as the law food Sabbath and temple and thus aroused anger and agitation against him13 Jesus saw himself as Yahweh’s special agent and that his going to Jerusalem was in reality as the symbol and embodiment of YHWH’s return to Zion 14 Jesus’ message called his followers into repentance However the repentance was referring less to individual than to national repentance The nation was to repent of its revolutionary desire for war and the overthrow of Rome 15 Jesus did not know that he was God in the same way as we do; he was fully aware of his “Messianic vocation” as the symbolic return of YHWH to Zion 16 Jesus died to subvert the mainstream symbols of the Judaism of the day and demonstrated the end of Israel's exile and Yahweh's covenantal promise of forgiveness and redemption as the climax of the covenant 17 Jesus meant to die for his vocation in order to fulfill the role of righteous prophet whose suffering through death would take upon himself the judgment due to the Israel nation18 Today’s Christians should reconsider their own portrait of Jesus in the first century Jewish context and ponder how we can learn from what Jesus did and imitate Jesus’ way in running our livesCritiuesWright’s thesis is very fresh and challenging in terms of correlating Jesus with his historical Jewish context He is also very ingenious in coordinating many important biblical theological themes in the Second Temple literatures and in the NT to create a synthetic picture However I am not convinced by his critical realist methodology exegetical tendency and his thesis with regard to the historical Jesus Here are my critiues 1 Normative Judaism As a critical realist Wright appears too confident in his reconstruction of the first century Judaism as primarily the hoping for restoration from exile community Readers of Wright must realize that his reconstruction of the early Judaism is still inconclusive in shape The Second Temple Judaism to our knowledge today does not have a “normative Judaism” but show many forms and shapes Wright generalizes the eschatological orientation of apocalyptic Judaism as “the Judaism” among the many “Judaisms” and then reduces it to the hoping for restoration from exile Judaism Wright has been too earnest in promoting his model to the degree of using it as the only theme of the first century Judaism in practice It is methodologically faulty to assume that every aspect of the Jewish environment in which Jesus was interacting and challenging is about the vision of returning from the exile 2 Forcing the text to meet one sided context While Wright attacks the first uesters such as the Jesus Seminar for judging the evidences about Jesus based on the picture “which has already been chosen” 33 he is doing no better than looking at Jesus in a different direction with the picture of a “Jewish Jesus” which has been already chosen by him After stripping the traditional portrait of Jesus from the influence of Western introspective conscience Wright “remythologizes” Jesus with the alleged Jewish background overlooking the other characteristics of Jesus portrayed in the Gospels that appear universal than Jewish 3 Extrabiblical materials over biblical materials Wright’s exegeses have the tendency of ignoring the direct discourse context but introducing his chosen biblical theological themes and the alleged Jewish background into the text He seems to give credit to the reliability of extrabiblical materials than to the biblical materials 4 Historicist impulse Wright in his interpretation of Jesus discusses the evangelists’ theological shaping of the accounts for Jesus in profound detail If there is such an “authentic” historical Jesus who lived much closer to the evangelists than to us it is significant to ask why we would want a fairly different portrait of Jesus from those of the evangelists if it is not demanded by our own contemporary worldview The evangelists did not seem to bother portraying the kind of divine and universal Messiah as we have traditionally known not thinking themselves as distorting the “authentic” Jesus if there had been such kind of Jesus ever existing The traditional assumption that the evangelists preserved different parts of Jesus’ proclamations remains a likely hypothesis that deserves contemporary scholars’ attention Wright’s historicist impulse seems to preclude the witness of the Scripture in interpreting the historical Jesus event 5 Marginalizing miracles Wright’s worldview laden hermeneutic eschews apologetically the historical significance of miracle materials about Jesus The physical manifestation of miracles in the Gospels is by and large marginalized in Wright’s model of interpretative framework Traditionally Jesus’ miracles are significant because they demonstrate Jesus’ authority in employing the symbolic values of the miracles to show his connection with the OT But in Wright’s model he uses only the symbolic values without paying attention to their links to Jesus’ miracles As a result Jesus’ Messianic vocation in Wright’s model is primarily to provide a set of refined symbols and reinterpreted meaning in order to fulfill the intensive expectation of the first century Jews Jesus did not come to change the world but to change the views of the world Without adeuate place for the miracles Wright radically de contextualizes the historical significance of Jesus’ miracles from the historical events of Jesus’ miraculous acts 6 Jesus’ fulfilling human expectation over fulfilling the Scripture Wright’s model does not differentiate the OT tradition from the Second Temple Judaism in a clear fashion He seems to think of Judaism and OT as indistinguishable or inseparable duplex Although Judaism is deeply dependent on the OT tradition Jesus tends to appeal the OT itself to make his case when attacking the Judaism of his time as “human tradition” Mat 153; Mk 77 Jesus claimed that his mission was to fulfill the “Scripture” not the intensive expectations of the first century Jews Mk 1419 On the contrast he constantly avoided to meet their expectations Jn 615 Wright’s interpretation of Jesus’ proclamation of national repentance is controlled by his own presupposition of the Israel’s hope of national restoration but he neglects the speaking of individual repentance Pss 2518; 3215; 3818; 512 3; 103310; 1304 and of individual forgiveness Lev 4263135; 1922 in the OT

Jesus then redefines faithfulness as allegiance not just to the Torah or to the Temple ritual but to following Jesus himselfThe chapters on Jesus' trip to Jerusalem were especially compelling NT Wright draws out the dramatic prophetic actions performed by Jesus in Jerusalem which eventually led to his death These included his action in the temple and his speech afterward in which he condemned the temple and predicted its destruction and said that its destruction would be Jesus' own vindication Jesus didn't just die accidentally or just because of petty jealousy; his message was deeply subversive to the powerful Jewish leaders at the time and specifically condemned the nation's actions and symbols as having been corrupted from YHWH's commandLike I wrote in my previous review I don't have the background to evaluate the strength of the historical arguments I'm learning that in contrast to the deductive methods of philosophy historical argument proceeds often by asserting what would have made sense in a less rigorous way that I'm used to perhaps because that's the best we can do given the data So I will need to keep readingBut after reading this book I definitely won't read my bible or see Jesus the same way that I did before To be honest the Jesus of timeless truths that I understood before did not seem to have a distinct personality that I could understand Or perhaps he always had some sort of mystical ethereal uality towards him since I was always thinking that he was speaking to me directly through the pages of the bible with a message that just happened to be infinitely transferrable across time and culture He was infinitely relatable because I was always immediately interpreting his actions and words to be directed towards myself and my situation But the Jesus presented in this book who addressed the people of his time and spoke regarding the problems of his time with authority and boldness that Jesus though less relatable to me due to the time and culture difference seems to be real That is the Jesus I want to know
