The story of Jesus (peace be upon him) in the Islamic tradition. Muslims believe in the Virgin Birth, that Jesus performed miracles, and that he is the Messiah. They don’t believe he was crucified, but he was taken up to heaven by God and will return to earth as a Muslim. This is an illuminating film with commentary from scholars who highlight the similarities and differences between the Jesus of the Gospels and in the Quran – concluding that the two faiths have more in common than most people realise, including an appearance by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, who was filmed quite extensively for this documentary.
The one-hour special,’The Muslim Jesus’, commissioned and narrated by Melvyn Bragg, used the Quran as its main source and featured various interviews with scholars and historians.
