The Quran is the Muslim holy book. Chapter 4, Verse 157 of the Quran says, “[They claimed]…’We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of God,’ but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them…” (Sura 4:157, Yusuf Ali translation).
So Muslims do not believe that Jesus was crucified. During the Easter season, pray that Muslims will understand that Jesus died, rose again, and conquered death.
Pray especially for radical Muslims who persecute Christians. Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, the founder of The Voice of the Martyrs, said, “They will not succeed in making us hate them.” Their persecution of Christians will just make us want to do more to bring them the message of Christ. If they understand what Jesus taught, they will no longer wasn’t to persecute others.
