Fundamentals of the Christian Faith in the Light of the Gospels

by Maulana Sadr-ud-Din

Jesus Had Been Raised for the Guidance of The Children of Israel: The Gospels regard Jesus as a Human Being

“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man” (Luke, 2:52).

It has again been repeated in this verse that the mental and physical faculties of Jesus developed gradually, and that on account of his righteousness and moral rectitude he gained favour with God and man. These qualities also show that Jesus was nothing more than a human being, and to raise him, therefore, from the plane of humanity to that of Divinity is an unjustifiable contradiction of the clear teaching of the Gospel.
