Jesus and Muhammad

F. E. Peters

The legacy of each man is the subject of this chapter. Though it presents grave problems to the historian, Jesus’ resurrection from the dead — there were reportedly witnesses to the risen Jesus — empowers the Twelve and sets in train the Jesus movement that soon begins to worship him as the Son of God. What followed Muhammad’s perfectly natural death was more political: a struggle over the succession to the leadership of the community, overshadowed perhaps by the expanding military conquest of Arabia and then the Middle East. Muhammad meanwhile grows in stature after his death: he becomes the ideal Muslim, the paragon and model of all the virtues he preached in the Quran.
