Sharing the Gospel with Muslims

You can share Jesus Christ with a Muslim. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. The meaning of the name Jesus Christ

Since Jesus Christ is mentioned in the Koran known as Isa Masih, ask him what does the name Isa Masih mean.

The meaning of a name is important.

Isa: What does his name mean?

3:45 (and remember) when the angels said: “ O Maryam! Verily, Allah gives you the glad tidings of a Word from Him, whose name is Isa Masih (Jesus Messiah), the son of Maryam, held in honor in this world and in the Hereafter, and one of those brought near to Allah.”

Surah Ambiyaa 21:91 “.. and she (Maryam) guarded her chastity, therefore We breathed into her of our Spirit and made her and her son a sign for all people.”

Isa Masih means Savior Messiah

Al-Masih means “the anointed or promised one”

Isa Kalimutaullah (The Word of Allah)

Isa Ruhullah (Isa the Spirit of Allah)

Isa is the Word (Kalim) and Spirit of Allah. He is savior. What did he save us from. The Injeel says:

For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, 1 Peter 3:18

2. Talk about the death and resurrection of Jesus

The Koran tells us that Isa Masih died and was raised to life

Surah al-Imran 3:55 Allah said:
“O Isa! I will cause you to die and raise you to Myself.

Surah Maryam 19:33 Isa says about himself:
Blessed was the day I died, and blessed was the day I was resurrected.”

What was Allah’s purpose in the death and resurrection of Isa?

Isa was not born in sin like you and me. He the is the only one who had no father except Adam. He was the second Adam. He lived a holy and blameless life.

It was Allah’s plan for Isa to be the sacrifice for our sins. Just as Ibrahim made a sacrifice so God cause Isa to die for your sins. It was Allah’s plan for Isa to die as your savior. That is the meaning of the name Isa. The meaning of Masih is the appointed one.

Isa is the appointed one of Allah to die as your savior.

Believe in Isa. Read how one man came to that discovery. 

3.       Have them read the Injeel (New Testament)

The Qur’an tells to read the before books.

Sura Al An’am, 6:115 Perfected is the Word of the Lord in truth and justice. There is nothing that can change His words. He is the knower.

Sura Al-Imran 3:48 And He (Allah) will teach him the Scripture and wisdom, and the Torah (Tawrat) and the Gospel (Injeel)

Give them a New Testament or full Bible and ask them to start reading the Torah and Injeel
