It is important to listen to Muslims and why they do not believe in the Jesus of the Bible. Here is a dialogue in which Mehdi Hasan, a Muslim political journalist and broadcaster, says he hasn’t seen historical evidence for the Christian belief in Jesus:
“I genuinely am skeptical that Jesus would want me to believe in Him in that manner and I’ve yet to see the historical or theological evidence that says that” (Mehdi Hasan).
Mehdi Hasan says he hasn’t seen the historical evidence for Jesus’ death on the cross and His resurrection; he and other Muslims like him can look here to start.
It would be interesting to take this a little further and ask Mehdi Hasan whether he, as a Muslim, believes in the Virgin Birth of Jesus and His ascension into heaven. If so, what historical or theological evidence has convinced him of these truths?
I also found interesting Ida Glaser’s description of Jesus as being greater than a prophet (Son of God and Second Person of the Trinity) and her quoting of the first half of John 14:6 but not the second half (1:50-2:41). Mehdi Hasan said he could believe in the parts she quoted (2:41-3:13), but sadly Ida Glaser didn’t say everything Jesus said.
