In the Injil Sharif, Isa made a bold statement about himself. He said:
Yuhonna 14:6 “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”
Sura Al-Imran 3:42-55 confirms the Injil Sharif. Isa knows the way to Allah because he has traveled the Straight path (Tarika) to Allah. Isa is the Truth because he is the Word of Allah. Allah’s Word is always true. Isa is the Life because he was given power over death.
THE STRAIGHT PATH TO HEAVEN
Blind people need help in traveling. Until I read Sura Al-Imran 3:42-55, I felt that I was a “spiritually blind” person. My evil and sinful nature prevented me from seeing the straight path (Tarika) to heaven. I needed someone to help me. I needed someone who knows the way. Another blind person is of no use to me. It must be someone who has traveled this straight path before and whose home is heaven.
Can Isa help us get to heaven?
I believe Sura Al-Imran 3:42-55 is a special message from God. This wonderful message tells about a prophet that came from heaven, lived as a man and then went back to heaven. Thus, Isa in in heaven now. And, yes, I believe Isa can help us get to heaven too.
On another page, I wrote about an ayat from the Quran and then I asked a question. It is now time to answer that question.
Sura Al Maidah (5:83) “And when they listen to what has been sent down to the messenger, you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognized. They say; “Our Lord! We believe; so write us down among the witnesses.”
I asked the question, ‘Who is the “They” in this ayat?’
The answer: The followers of Isa are the ones who are called ‘True’ or ‘Complete’ Muslims.
