On the one hand, many Christians feel that Islam should never have come into existence, and that Muslims are intruders in their world. On the other hand, many Christians live in places where they meet Muslims every day, and have Muslims as friends and colleagues and family members whom they love. The Quran, without describing the event in any detail, confirms for Muslims that “God raised Jesus to Himself” (Quran ). The belief that Jesus is alive with God, then, is common to Muslims and Christians. Muslims also generally believe that Jesus will return to earth before the Day of Judgment.
between Christians, Muslims and Jews in history and at the present time. Their own ideas about these religions play a pivotal role in articulating these relation-ships. I hope that my suggestions will encourage others too, to explore new paths and ﬁnd new kinds of minesweepers in the political mineﬁeld of Christian– Muslim–Jewish. Christianity and Islam are the two largest religions in the world and share a historical traditional connection, with some major theological differences. The two faiths share a common place of origin in the Middle East, and consider themselves to be monotheistic.. Christianity is an Abrahamic, monotheistic religion which developed out of Second Temple Judaism in the 1st century CE.
