Written in the pages the Injil, was a bold claim that Jesus made about himself. He said:
I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.– Yuhonna/John 14:6
Sura Al-Imran 3:42-55 also confirms the Injil.
Jesus knows the way to Allah because he has traveled the Straight path (Tarika) to Allah. Jesus is the Truth because he is the Word of Allah. And Allah’s Word is always true. Jesus is the Life because he was given power over death.
The Straight Path
Blind people need help when they travel.
In a sense, we are all blind in some areas. And until I read Al-Imran 3:42-55, I also was spiritually blind. I was unable to be perfect on my own. And my selfish nature prevented me from seeing the straight path to heaven. I needed someone to help me… someone who actually 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.
Jesus is the way to heaven
I believe Sura Al-Imran 3:42-55 is a special message for all Muslims. This wonderful message tells about a prophet that came from heaven, lived as a man and then went back to heaven. And this prophet, Jesus, in in heaven now.
And, yes, I believe Jesus 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.
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.”– Sura Al Maidah (5:83)
If you have read this before, who is the “They” in this ayat?
The answer: The followers of Jesus are the ones who are called ‘True’ or ‘Complete’ Muslims.
