The Muslim Jesus - how one culture, that of Islam, assimilated the towering religious figure of another, that of Christianity. As such, it is a work of great significance for the understanding of both, and of profound implications for modern-day inter-sectarian relations and ecumenical dialogue.The Muslim Jesus uses the Qur'an and other Islamic texts to explore the differing ways in which Christian and Muslim faiths both acknowledge Jesus.Scholars, teachers, parents, rappers, poets and historians come together for the one hour special narrated by Melvin Bragg.The differences between the Qur'an and Bible portrayal of Jesus are explored in detail, from the role of Mary and his death and resurrection, to the coming of the Anti-Christ.
