“We believe in Jesus as just a prophet. We don’t believe he was crucified. We believe he just went back to heaven.” — Amal, age 14, American Muslim
Muslims believe that God would not allow Jesus to die on a cross. They believe that if Jesus was killed, it meant that He had failed, and His enemies won.
Christians know that Jesus died and rose to life again after His death. We believe that Jesus’ death and resurrection mean victory over sin and death, and that Jesus did not fail. He defeated sin and death, which are even greater enemies than the people who killed Him. Part of the good news of Jesus is that “death is swallowed up in victory” (1 Corinthians 15:54).
