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: Jesus, not God, but God’s Apostle

The following sacred texts, in which the term prophet has been used in respect of Jesus, may now be read with advantage. When the opponents of Jesus raised objections against him, and refused to accept him as an apostle of God, Jesus said in reply that every nation had been indulging in such cruel treatment of the prophet of their age. It would be useful to reproduce below the text in which a mention has been made of the raillery and ridicule poured on him, and how Jesus calmed his conscience, saying that such an ill-treatment had invariably been meted out to the prophets.
