Who was Jesus as ?

Different believers, in different religions, hold different ideologies of who Jesus as  was and what had happened to him. Here is a little insight as to what Ahmadi Muslims believe about Jesus as.

Ahmadi Muslims hold the unique belief that Jesus (peace be upon him) survived the crucifixion and travelled towards India to continue his ministry among the Lost Tribes of Israel.

Ahmadi Muslims believe that Jesus as was a Prophet of God born to the Virgin Mary and was the Messiah of the Israelites as foretold by Moses as.

The Term “Son of God”

While the term “Son of God” has been used in reference to Jesus, it should be noted that God has used this title for many of His chosen ones.

For example, God, in the Old Testament refers to David: “I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, ‘You are my Son; today I have begotten you'” * (Psalm 2:7)

Furthermore, in a New Testament genealogy, Adam is listed as the “Son of God” (Luke 3.38). In fact, some may argue that Adam could have a greater claim over the “Sonship of God” because, unlike Jesus, he had neither an earthly father nor mother.

In order to reconcile these references and many others, it is not unreasonable to conclude, that the Biblical usage of the term “Son of God” does not necessarily connote a literal “sonship to God” but a metaphorical one instead.

Furthermore, Ahmadi Muslims claim that Jesus as survived the crucifixion because he was taken down from the cross in a state of unconsciousness — not death.

After his survival, Jesus as travelled as far as Kashmir, India and preached to the Lost Tribes of Israel. His tomb can be found there to this day.
