Islam teaches that Jesus is important
but not essential to knowing God!

Islam says He was just a prophet, Jesus says I am the Son of God

“Jesus Christ was one of the Prophets. We believe that he was a human being, not God nor the son of God…he was just a human being and a Messenger of God.” – Questions About Islam

John 17:1-5 NLT

After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so he can give glory back to you. For you have given him authority over everyone. He gives eternal life to each one you have given him. And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth. I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began.

Islam Says He is not co-equal with God, Jesus says We are one
