There are billboards going up all over the country portraying that Jesus and Mohammed come from the same family and give the same message. This is not true.
There is a reason the Bible gives a detailed blood line of our Lord and Saviour. God says one from the line of David will rule. Isaiah 9: 6-7 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given,and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this. Luke 1: “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.”Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I am a virgin?”…
Jesus is not from the line of Mohammed. Let’s start with Mohammed.
“Indeed Allah chose Isma’il from the progeny of Ibrahim, chose the Banu Kinanah over other tribes from the children of Isma’il; He chose the Banu Quraish over other tribes of Kinanah; He chose Banu Hashim over the other families of the Quraish; and He chose me from Banu Hashim.”
A list of important ancestors of Mohammed are: Abraham, Ishmail, Qedarites, Adnan, Malik, and Quraysh. (Complete list here.) There are many ancestors listed from Arabic tribes too many to name.
They do revere Seth Adam’s son whom they and others say he was born after Abel’s death to replace Abel. There is much mysticism around Seth as Islamic tradition and some Jewish tradition say that Adam taught Seth the secrets of the Heavens. That’s as much detail as I will give to that.
The Genealogy of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1)
The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
Abraham was the father of Isaac, and Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, and Judah the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, and Perez the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Ram, and Ram the father of Amminadab, and Amminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon, and Salmon the father of Boaz by Rahab, and Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of David the king.
And David was the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah, and Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asaph, and Asaph the father of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah, and Uzziah the father of Jotham, and Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah, and Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, and Manasseh the father of Amos, and Amos the father of Josiah, 11 and Josiah the father of Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon.
And after the deportation to Babylon: Jechoniah was the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, and Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, and Abiud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor, and Azor the father of Zadok, and Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud, and Eliud the father of Eleazar, and Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ. So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Christ fourteen generations.
There are those always attempting to dissect the Bible and prove falsehoods. Matthew and Luke both give geneologies of Jesus. Again, you either believe the Bible as the infallible word of God or you don’t. I could write volumes on the geneology of Jesus, and Mohammed. But this is the simple facts without sensationalism, without so called scholars dissecting, slicing and dicing. Jesus is not of Mohammed’s blood line. And just in case your still confused. Here is what the Apostle Paul tells us of our lineage from Abraham.
Galatians 4: 29-31
Hagar and Sarah
…29 But as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also. 30But what does the Scripture say? “CAST OUT THE BONDWOMAN AND HER SON, FOR THE SON OF THE BONDWOMAN SHALL NOT BE AN HEIR WITH THE SON OF THE FREE WOMAN.”31 So then, brethren, we are not children of a bondwoman, but of the free woman.
Mohammed comes from Ishmael and yes God did give him a nation also, but his lineage is not chosen, it is not from the line of David, and Mohammed did not worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. If he did, they still today would not be worshiping a black stone. Remember they say that Jesus is not God’s son, He is not even the coming Messiah, they say that He will kill all the Christians who don’t convert to Islam, and they say the Messiah is a descendant of Mohammed. Now unless Mohammed put himself above God, he can not produce a messiah.
Genesis 17: 19-21
But God said, “No, but Sarah your wife will bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. “As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him, and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall become the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. “But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year.”…
(BibleStudyTools.com Definition of Messiah)The New Testament writers, evangelists, and apostles give no reason to doubt that Jesus is the Messiah, or in New Testament language, the Christ. He came, born of Abrahamic and Davidic lineage ( Matt 1:2-16 ;Luke 2:4-15 ). John the Baptist identified Jesus as the Messiah by referring to the wider dimension: “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” ( John 1:29 ). Jesus was the One who would bring judgment as well as life by the Spirit of God ( Matt 3:1-12 ). The evangelists record that Jesus was anointed by the Spirit when he was baptized. Jesus proclaimed himself as the Messiah in Nazareth ( Luke 4:16-22 ) and at Jacob’s well to the Samaritan woman ( John 4:24-25 ).
I’m going to end it here. Study for yourself, but please do not fall for this fallacy that Jesus and Mohammed are one big family with the same message for all. Chrislam is wrong, period.
