If Jesus was the messiah, then what does that make Mohamed?

    If Jesus was the messiah then Mohamed would have to be the new kid on the block - second fiddle. But it doesn't really matter, does it? Neither one of them was a representative of God since there is no God to be represented.

    Faithful belief is just hogwash, isn't it....

    Messiah as in the Savior of a people. Then Mohamed is a poor prophet from what little I have read of the Koran so far(only up to sura 2. may take several reading to get a better comparison). but about on a par with a couple of Jesus' apostles.that give a different viewpoint on what they think Jesus said and meant.

    From the Hebrew root verb ma·shach′, meaning “smear,” and so “anoint.” (Ex 29:2, 7) Messiah (ma·shi′ach) means “anointed” or “anointed one.” The Greek equivalent is Khri·stos′, or Christ.—Mt 2:4, ftn.

    In the Hebrew Scriptures the verbal adjective form ma·shi′ach is applied to many men. David was officially appointed to be king by being anointed with oil and so is spoken of as “anointed one” or, literally, “messiah.” (2Sa 19:21; 22:51; 23:1; Ps 18:50) Other kings, including Saul and Solomon, are termed “anointed one” or “the anointed of Jehovah.” (1Sa 2:10, 35; 12:3, 5; 24:6, 10; 2Sa 1:14, 16; 2Ch 6:42; La 4:20) The term is also applied to the high priest. (Le 4:3, 5, 16; 6:22) The patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are called Jehovah’s “anointed ones.” (1Ch 16:16, 22, ftn) Persian King Cyrus is termed “anointed one,” in that he was appointed by God for a certain assignment.—Isa 45:1; see ANOINTED, ANOINTING.

    In the Christian Greek Scriptures the transliterated form Mes·si′as occurs in the Greek text at John 1:41, with the explanation, “which means, when translated, Christ.” (See also Joh 4:25.) Sometimes the word Khri·stos′ is used alone with reference to the one who is or who claims to be the Messiah, or the Anointed One. (Mt 2:4; 22:42; Mr 13:21) In most of its appearances, though, Khri·stos′ is accompanied by the personal name Jesus, as in the expressions “Jesus Christ” or “Christ Jesus,” to designate him as the Messiah. At times the word is used alone but specifically referring to Jesus with the understanding that Jesus is The Christ, as in the statement, “Christ died for us.”—Ro 5:8; Joh 17:3; 1Co 1:1, 2; 16:24; see CHRIST.

    Messiah in the Hebrew Scriptures. At Daniel 9:25, 26 the word ma·shi′ach applies exclusively to the coming Messiah. (See SEVENTY WEEKS.) However, many other texts of the Hebrew Scriptures also point to this coming One, even if not exclusively so. For instance, Psalm 2:2 evidently had first application at the time when Philistine kings tried to unseat anointed King David. But a second application, to the foretold Messiah, is established by Acts 4:25-27, where the text is applied to Jesus Christ. Also, many of the men called “anointed” in various ways prefigured, or pictured, Jesus Christ and the work he would do; among these were David, the high priest of Israel, and Moses (spoken of as “Christ” at Heb 11:23-26).

    Jesus taught us all we need to know. Then why should Almighty God send someone else 700 years later? for what purpose?

    And with teachings about a SOLO GOD.

    Because of Jesus' sacrifice, we can all look forward to a new life on this earth WITHOUT sickness and death [ Rev. 21;4]

    WHAT, along these lines, has mohammad's God promised. Anything at all a just a continuing miserable existence among all the killing and auguments, with only death as the final RELIEF.?

    surely the God who made the earth would want it used properly and protected. Continuous

    civil strife and warfare in all the Muslim countries do nothing towards achieving this.

    What Jesus was or is depending on ones point of view, is really irrelevant to the life of Mohamed. Mohamed was a war lord of his time and place. He began a cult to worship one of the moon goddess and a few years later figured out that he can play prophet and claimed to be sent from god. He racked up many victory's in battle and much, much wealth from his conquered lands. Hay, he had a good thing going, It's kind of sad that the people who were taught to worship him never took the time to look at his life and how he lived, Kind of like actions speak louder then words.

    By the way, his being a warlord is just a fact. Has nothing to do with faith or religion.

    A false prophet. If one looks at the prophesies before Jesus' time, Jesus fulfill's all of them according to the coming messiah. The Bible also says that there shall be false prophets that will come as satan's shepards, such as mohamed and smith.

    If you check and study the history of him and when he started you will realize that Mohammed was a fraud. Only after being rejected with absurdities by both the Jewish and Christian scholars did he start saying that the Bible was a lie. But he contradicted himself, because he used the same Bible to refer back to the prophets to back up his fairytale. His lies don't add up if you actually research Islamic origins. By the way, the Islamic religion didn't get created until hundreds of years after the death of Christ Jesus, so Mary couldn't have been a muslim. And Jesus did claim Himself to be the I AM in human form. Muslims don't understand this, because they limit God to human terms of what God can and can not do. That in and of itself is absurd. Also, originally, the word allah was used for pagan false gods, not the God Jehovah of Abraham. The non- Hebrews claiming to be offspring of Abraham, are possibly, but they are the bastard offspring of a slave of Egyptian ancestry.

    Hello =)

    Jesus is the Messiah to Christians, but only a Prophet to Jews and Muslims.....

    Mohamed is a Prophet to Muslims, and a minor Prophet to Jews, and nothing to Christians.

    This really isn't a classic if-then statement...

    Why would there be a prophet after a messiah? Also, why would the answerer above me ^ say that Jesus is a minor prophet to Jews? I don't see him as a prophet.

    Source(s): Seriously confused...give me a thumbsdown if you're also confused
