Jesus of Nazareth lies at the center of Christian beliefs, though he is not unknown to Judaism, and Islamic tradition is also acquainted with his teachings. Nevertheless, it is the very person of Jesus that most divides the three religions. Is Jesus of Nazareth in fact the fulfilment of the messianic history of Israel? Is Maria more than just a Galiliean mother? How holy is the “holy family”? And what do we say about the uniqueness of God when we revere Jesus as the risen Son of God? Was he perhaps just a major prophet? This is where the Jews and Muslims see things differently than the Christians. The reject both the Christological and Trinitarian dogma of Christianity, so that the common basis is narrow indeed. Yet there is a common basis, which this volume describes in the various ramifications.
