Ah...you are so right to say that I think highly of Jesus. It was because of Jesus
(peace be upon him) that I surrendered to God.
For Jesus said, " If you love God, follow me." I followed Jesus and he showed me the straight path which is " Worship Your Lord, and My Lord, that
is the straight path. "
He never said, " Worship me for I am the Lord our God. "
Truth is, I became a better follower of Jesus, because I am worshiping The Lord that Jesus worshiped."
Jesus answered: "As God lives, in whose presence my soul stands, I am not the Messiah whom all the tribes of the earth expect, even as God promised
to our father Abraham, saying: "In your seed will I bless all the tribes of the earth." But when God shall take me away from the world, Satan will
raise again this accursed sedition, by making the impious believe that I am God and son of God, whence my words and my doctrine shall be contaminated,
insomuch that scarcely shall there remain thirty faithful ones: whereupon God will have mercy upon the world, and will send his Messenger for whom he
has made all things who shall come from the south with power, and shall destroy the idols with the idolaters who shall take away the dominion from
Satan which he has over men. He shall bring with him the mercy of God for salvation of them that shall believe in him, and blessed is he who shall
believe his words.
Here Jesus is telling all the people of Israel about the Prophet Muhammad
(peace be upon him)
The coming of the Messenger, who shall destroy every false opinion of me, and his faith shall spread and shall take hold of the whole world, for so
has God promised to Abraham our father. And that which gives me consolation is that his faith shall have no end, but shall be kept inviolate by God."
The priest answered: "After the coming of the Messenger of God shall other prophets come?" Jesus answered: "There shall not come after him true
prophets sent by God, but there shall come a great number of false prophets, whereat I sorrow. For Satan shall raise them up by the just judgment of
God, and they shall hide themselves under the pretext of my gospel." Herod answered: "How is it a just judgment of God that such impious men should
Jesus answered: "It is just that he who will not believe in the truth to his salvation should believe in a lie to his damnation. Wherefore I say to
you, that the world has ever despised the true prophets and loved the false, as can be seen in the time of Micaiah and Jeremiah. For every like loves
Then said the priest: "How shall the Messiah be called, and what sign shall reveal his coming?" Jesus answered: "The name of the Messiah is
admirable, for God himself gave him the name when he had created his soul, and placed it in a celestial splendour. God said: "Wait Muhammad; for your
sake I will to create paradise, the world, and a great multitude of creatures, whereof I make you a present, insomuch that whoever shall bless you
shall be blessed, and whoever shall curse you shall be accursed. When I shall send you into the world I shall send you as my Messenger of salvation,
and your word shall be true, insomuch that heaven and earth shall fail, but your faith shall never fail." Muhammad is his blessed name." Then the
crowd lifted up their voices, saying: "O God send us your Messenger: O Muhammad, come quickly for the salvation of the world!"
I hope this answers your question, Jesus(pbuh) did not set up a new religion, but was a follower of the religion of our forefather Abraham, as was the
2:140 Or say ye that Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the tribes were Jews or Christians? Say: Do ye know best, or doth Allah? And who
is more unjust than he who hideth a testimony which he hath received from Allah? Allah is not unaware of what ye do.
