The Islamic position on the identity of Jesus is taken from the Qur'an and Hadiths which together comprise the ultimate authority in the Muslim Religion.
Some Christians are not aware of their own Biblical Scriptures defending the identity of Christ. And certainly, many Christians are not aware of either the Biblical or Islamic Scriptures describing Jesus Christ.
It is crucial to bring into focus for you exactly what Bible says about Jesus and then compare it to what the Qur'an says about who Jesus is.
