Hindus believe Jesus Christ was a holy man.

Hindus often eager to include Jesus Christ in their list of worshipping Deities.

  1. For Muslims, Jesus Christ is believed to be the Penultimate Prophet and Messenger of God.

Muslims believed he was not crucified nor died on the Cross but rather, was miraculously disappeared and ascended to heaven. In the Quran, Jesus is described as the Messiah(al-Masih), born of a virgin.

The Quran rejects the Christians view of the Divinity of Jesus Christ as the God incarnate or the literal Son of God.

However, in the Islamic eschatology, Jesus Christ will return in the Second Coming with Imam Mahdi to kill the ‘False Messiah’ also known as Al-Masih ad-Dajjal after which the ancient tribes of Magog and Gog would disperse.

After that, Jesus Christ and Imam Mahdi would rule the entire world together, establishing Peace and Justice and die again after a reign of 40years. Some Muslims views that Jesus Christ would then finally be buried alongside Prophet Muhammad at the fourth reserved tomb of the Green Dome in Medina, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

  1. For Christians, we believed that Jesus Christ is the Son of God(as part of the Trinity), died on the Cross to save the World, resurrected and ascended to heaven sitting on the right hand side of God interceding for us. He was born by a virgin Mary.

He will come to the world again as a Second Coming.

We believed that Jesus Christ is the ONE & ONLY WAY to God. He is the Savior.

We believed that Jesus Christ has been elevated by God above all creation of God.


Almost all religions of the World believe in Jesus Christ BUT with different perspectives.

Accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior is the surest way to eternal life.
