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, the Son of a Prophet

While the Pharisees were gathered together Jesus asked them, saying:

“What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David” (Matthew, 22:41–42).

Jesus it is clear, was the son of Joseph, son of David, son of Abraham, son of Adam. Jesus took this reply of the people to be correct and true, that he was the son of David, that is, the son of a prophet. Jesus was indeed a mortal born of mortal parents.
