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: Jesus, a Follower of Jewish Law

“Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the feast of the passover. And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tar­ried behind in Jerusalem” (Luke, 2:41–43).

This passage and those preceding it point to the fact that Jesus, his mother Mary and his father Joseph were Jews and fol­lowed the Jewish law. How, then, can Jesus be considered God?
