The religion founded by Mohammad gives primacy to the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses, and, although it may be a surprise to many Christians, considers Jesus one of the prominent religious figures of Islam. The Islamic Jesus is a book for all those who are interested in Christology, in which Daniel Deleanu brings together both canonical and traditional Islamic texts, adding a new facet to the image of Jesus in this often misunderstood religion. Deleanu shows that there are substantial discrepancies between the canonical and the apocryphal portraits of Jesus in Islam. Alongside the authoritative Koranic stories of Jesus, this anthology presents traditional accounts from the Hadith and other less known sources, whom Daniel Deleanu has collected and co-translated to produce a genuine Islamic gospel.
