Two very important religious men in history were Jesus Christ and the prophet Muhammed Al Amin. Both men have qualities and history to compare and contrast throughout their lives connected with their respective religions and followers. The lives of these two men took place at different times in history yet the impact they had in history is monumental. The comparisons between the two are few in relation to the men themselves but the similarities in their beliefs are closer than might appear. Jesus' life is recalled in the New Testament. According to Gospels, his mother Mary was visited by an angel announcing that Mary will give birth to the Son of God. Jesus was born in 4 CE at Galilee. His mother Mary is said to have been "A virgin when she conceived him by the Holy Spirit; her husband was Joseph, a carpenter from Bethlehem" (Fisher, 2005, p. 288). Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph by immaculate conception and from a very young age Jesus claimed to have a very different relationship with God, whom he called his Father. Jesus, which means "God Saves" (Fisher, 2005, p.288) made mention of his relationship with God at a young age. He made a journey with his parents to Jerusalem for Passover when he was a young boy of twelve years old and discussed the Torah with the rabbi's there showing his above average capacity for knowledge as a youngster and when leaving, Jesus stated aloud "Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?" (Fisher, 2005, p.289). This statement would show his relationship with God and later would become the start of his teachings about God and the relationship all people should have with the Creator. There is no real documentation in the Gospels of the life of Jesus between the conversations with the rabbi's and his baptism by John who protested he didn't think he should baptize the savior. However, Jesus insisted and stated the baptism…...

...Literary Commentary The song of the old mother Presented to: Miss Angela Presented by: Mohamed Nour Oasis school of Maadi 16/10/2012 English In this ten-line poem, Yeats talks about the life of an old woman who compares her harsh daily routine with that of carefree young women. In the first four lines, the old woman tells us that she has to get up at sunrise, start a fire and prepares to cook throughout the day and work. It is obvious that the mother is compared to the sun in a metaphorical way. First of all she states “I rise in the dawn” which is an image of the sun rising early in the morning. The fact that she says 'I must scrub and bake and sweep' gives the impression that she has no other choice, and does not enjoy this work. . The only time that the mother is allowed to stop working is at night. In the fourth line there is a personification they 'blink and peep', to give the old woman a hint that her day's work is finally over. Over the next four lines, the old mother comments on the life of the young girls around her, who is totally different than hers. She complains that young women have no work to do; they spend their time in day dreaming. They don't have to get up early like she does; they can stay in bed as long as they wish. All that matters is if their hair and their clothes match each other. In the last two lines of the poem, the old mother returns to thoughts of how she has to spend her days: there is a repetition of the word “must”......

...Jesus and Mohammed are two very different historical religious figures but yet despite their differences they did share some similarities. Jesus and Mohammed both played important roles and were highly respected in their religion. They both had important messages that they wanted to be heard and passed on by their followers. Jesus It’s impossible to accurately reconstruct the life of Jesus due to the fact that there are so many versions of his life especially before he began his ministry, however, after an extensive analysis most scholars have concluded that the grounds of linguistics and regional history of the New Testament that many of the sayings attributed to Jesus by the gospels may be authentic (Fisher, 2005). Jesus’ life began in an interesting fashion. He was born in Bethlehem to Mary, who was a virgin when she conceived him by the Holy Spirit, and Joseph a carpenter. They named their son Jesus because it had a spiritual meaning to them, which was “God saves” (Fisher, 2004). Besides the story of the birth of Jesus that took place in a stable. Jesus and Mohammed Jesus and Mohammed both laid the foundation for two similar and yet very different religions. Jesus was the founder of Christianity while Mohammed was the founder of Islam.

Jesus and Mohammed

...| Jesus and Mohammed | Hum/130 | | | 11/16/2013 | Jesus & Mohammed Jesus and Mohammed have shaped the course of history and the destiny of man for over two millennia. Christianity and Islam are currently the largest religions with a following of 1.8 billion and 1 billion respectively. No other religion in the world comes close to achieving such numbers. These are the only two religions that have a global presence; in other words you will find Muslims and Christians present in every territory in the world. Both Jesus and Mohammed shared a lot of similarities and differences which is reflected in their respective religions. Historically, we encounter reports of miraculous events before and upon the Birth of both leaders. The Christian Bible talks of a host of Angels appearing to shepherds (Bible, Luke 2:8 NIV). There is also the star of Bethlehem, a celestial body, said to have guided three Magi to the birthplace of Jesus where they rendered gifts. (Bible, Mathew 2:2 NIV). As for Mohammed, the Quran reports that as a baby he was sent to be taken care of by a nurse which was the custom in those days. Halimah, his nurse, explains that with the entrance of Prophet Muhammad, blessings showered her life such that their property and herd increased daily. Although drought had spread throughout the deserts and cities, Halimah's sheep were healthy and full of milk. Their shriveled trees prospered and grew back green leaves. The camels regained their milk.......

...BSCE-1 THEO 2 1:00-2:00 TTHS HUMAN SAVIOR IMAGES OF JESUS Jewish Mystic / Spirit Person: One of those figures in human history who had frequent and vivid experiences of the sacred. Jesus, too, was a spirit person, according to the Gospels, he had visions including one at his baptism in which, like Ezekiel, he “saw heaven opened before him and he saw the Spirit coming down on him like a dove”. Jesus also used spiritual practices like fasting and long hours of prayer typical for spirit persons. His intimate communion with God is indicated by his use of the word Abba. He called God Abba, a term signifying closeness and familiarity. It is equivalent to the words papa, daddy, or itay, or tatang. Jewish Healer: The historical evidence that Jesus performed paranormal healings is very strong; he must have been a remarkable healer. Jesus both healed and exorcised. Not all spirit persons become healers and exorcists, but some do and Jesus was among them. His contemporaries and he himself viewed these abilities as the result of the Spirit’s power working through Him. The Gospels refer to healings and exorcisms and healings. In addition to possessions by evil spirits, the conditions treated included fever, paralysis, withered hand, bent back, haemorrhage, deafness and dumbness, blindness, dropsy, coma, and skin disease. Jewish Wisdom Teacher: He taught a subversive and alternative wisdom. Jesus was regularly addressed as a teacher during his lifetime by......

Understanding why Jesus was chosen to come to Earth, his miracles, and learning his sacrifices for us will help anyone understand the world we live in.

He is sent to Earth as the Messiah as stated in the Bible (Isaiah 9:6 King James Version) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Jesus

...Jesus was the son of God. Jesus Christ came to Earth to live among mankind and to teach and minister to us. Jesus provided mankind with the hope of everlasting life and happiness if only we lived by God’s word. Jesus taught us that life was a gift and through his teachings he was able to show us that God only wants the best for us and if we chose to live by his word we will have this. Jesus was sent to live among mankind by God. He was born to the Virgin Mary and to Joseph a carpenter. God knew that if Jesus was born to a virgin it would show that Jesus was pure and truly from God. Joseph didn’t want to marry Mary once he found out she was pregnant, but when God appeared to him in his dreams he knew that Jesus was going to save us from our sins and decided to stay married to her. Once it was time for Jesus to be born, his poor parents could find no place to have the baby and resorted to Jesus being born in the stable. However, this was the best decision because it showed that Jesus came in poverty and with humility so that Jesus could identify with weakest among us. As Jesus grew up, he began to teach to people. His disciples were his primary focus, for they were to carry on his message to those that he could not come in contact with. Jesus had to perform miracles to prove to nonbelievers that there was a God and that God truly had their best interest at heart. These miracles Jesus performed were simple, but were significant. In one of them for example, Jesus came upon a......

...Jesus and Muhammad Anthony Ebron 3/1/2009 Trace the lives of Jesus and Muhammad historically. Compare what impact the death of each person had on his respective religion. Describe the ways each individual was/is worshipped. Explain how their messages are being carried out in the world today. Jesus and Muhammad Paper Life of Jesus: There is very little historical proof of the life of Jesus outside of the Bible. What Christians believe about Jesus’ life and teachings is based largely on biblical texts, particularly the first four books of the New Testament, which are called the gospels. These books seem to have been written around forty to sixty years after Jesus’ death. They are based on the oral transmission of the stories and discourses, which may have been influenced by the growing split between Christians and Jews. The gospels were first written down in Greek and perhaps Aramaic, the everyday language that Jesus spoke, and then copied and translated in many different ways over the centuries. Jesus was probably born a few years before the first year of what is now called the Common Era. Traditionally, Christians have believed that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Jesus’ mother was Mary, who was a virgin when she conceived him by Holy Spirit; her husband was Joseph, a carpenter from Bethlehem. No other stories are told about Jesus’ childhood in Nazareth until he was twelve years old. He accompanied his parents on their yearly trip to Jerusalem for Passover. Left......

...scripture says, “What no one ever saw or heard, what no one ever thought could happen, is the very thing God prepared for those who love him. But[a] it was to us that God made known his secret by means Of his Spirit. The Spirit searches everything, even the hidden depths of God's purposes. Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Hebrew 11: 3, 6 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Ephesians 1:3,7 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose....

...Jesus & Mohammed Brian Smith HUM/130 9/4/10 Lori Silverstein Jesus & Mohammed The lives of Jesus and the Prophet Mohammed are somewhat linked forever. There are those that believe that Jesus is the son of God and that he was born of the Virgin Mary, sent to earth in the form of a man and died for the sins of man. There are those that believe that the Prophet Mohammed was the last prophet of God, a messenger of God and considered to be the founder of the religion of Islam. Regardless of what a person may or may not believe, the lives of the two are intertwined forever. The Prophet Mohammed as called by those who follow Islamic faith was born somewhere around 570 CE in the city now known as Mecca. He has been credited with being the father of Islam and is largely regarded by Muslims as the greatest law-bearer in the group of Islamic prophets. Mohammed was the son of a merchant however was orphaned at the age of six. Mohammed is said to have been a descendent of the Prophet Ishmael the son of father Abraham who is said to be the father of the three major religions in the world, Christianity and Islam being tow of them. When Mohammad grew up he married a wealth rich widow by the name of Khadijah at her proposal, which whom he had six children four daughters and two sons.

...In my search for the historical Jesus I found that there are several different opinions about Jesus’ life, from his birth, to where he was between the ages of 12 until he was 30, to his resurrection. I have taken several different opinions of who the real historical Jesus, but first I want to start with the facts. We know that Jesus was born in the time of Herod. This tells us that he had to be born somewhere around 6 BC. It is also known that he visited the temple at age twelve. Little is known about where Jesus was between the age of 12 and the age of thirty; thirty being when he started his ministry which took place in and around Israel. Most people do agree that Jesus died by crucifixion in the year thirty-three. I used the biblical story of Jesus for a base line story to get started; then explained other opinions at the end of this essay. Luke 2:1-20 1-5About that time Caesar Augustus ordered a census to be taken throughout the Empire. This was the first census when Quirinius was governor of Syria. Everyone had to travel to his own ancestral hometown to be accounted for. So Joseph went from the Galilean town of Nazareth up to Bethlehem in Judah, David's town, for the census. As a descendant of David, he had to go there. He went with Mary, his fiancée, who was pregnant. 6-7While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. She gave birth to a son, her firstborn. She wrapped him in a blanket and laid him in a manger, because there was no room in the hotel.......

...Jesus and Mohammed Paper Kai Taylor Jesus and Mohammed Paper The lives of Jesus of Nazareth and of the Prophet Mohammed are still being told today. Their life stories and teachings have impacted and inspired many people from all over the world. Jesus and Mohamed are the holiest in their religions right behind God. They were both great leaders of their religions and continue to lead to this day to the faithful. Jesus was said to be born in a mangier in the city of Bethlehem. His birth was a miraculous birth, meaning that his mother, Mary, was a virgin and had been impregnated by God himself. Jesus was believed to be a carpenter, although the bible and scriptures do not say exactly what he did for a good part of his adulthood. Very little is known about Jesus until he was about 30 years old. That where his story picks back up. Jesus starts his travels and preaches his teachings to the people and begins to gather a following. Through his travels he gathers disciples and preached about forgiveness and having faith. Throughout his travels, Jesus preformed many miracles. He healed the sick, raised the dead, and turned water into wine among many other things. As Jesus’ following began to gain strength with many followers, the Romans got concerned that he could become a threat to the king of Rome. He was arrested and brought before Pontius Pilate and where was asked if he was the king of the Jews and the son of God. When he answered yes to the questions he was......
