Misconception: Muslims reject Jesus

Background: Some think that Muslims do not believe in Jesus or think negatively of Jesus.

Jesus is considered a prophet and a messenger of God, like others, e.g. Abraham, Moses, Noah [see 2:136, 4:163, 61:6]. The Quran however strongly rejects Jesus being part of a divinity or anything more than a human being [see 4:171, 5:17, 5:72, 5:75, 10:68, 19:30-31]. Jesus' message was simply a continuation of the message of monotheism and doing good, like prophets before him. Jesus is one the most mentioned prophets in The Quran.
