Fundamentals of the Christian Faith in the Light of the Gospels

by Maulana Sadr-ud-Din

Jesus, a Human Being and an Apostle of God

In the verse quoted above, some very valuable truths have been stated: first, that Jesus was an apostle of God; second, that the teaching which he imparted unto the people was not his own, but it had been revealed unto him by the Most High God, and those who accepted that teaching set a seal on the fact of God’s existence. And this is, of a truth, the intended purpose of religion.

God’s word came upon Jesus:

“If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God” (John, 8:39–40).
