The thesis raises the current question of comparing Christianity and Islam, and analyzes God's revelation in both religions. A primary focus of our research is the Jesus of the Gospel and the Prophet Muhammad of Islam through a comparison of their lives and mission.
A basic point of difference explored in our thesis is the question of God's revelation, which Muslims claim to have been completed in Islam and not in Christianity. This contention is based on Jesus' announcement of the arrival of another advocate in John 14:26. Our thesis, developed through exegetical manuals, explores and explains the prediction of Jesus. In the same way, through the literature of Bosniak Islamic theologians, we examined the reasons and justification of Islam as the true religion and the belief that Islam claims the last and ultimate revelation of God.
At the beginning of our thesis development, we compare the Christian and Islamic conceptions of God's revelation. We approach this part of our studymore methodologically than content-wise. We then delve into considerations of the role of God's people, and above all focusing on the work of Jesus and Muhammad, their place in their respective communities, and their role as founders of two great religions. We shall include references to Jesus found in the Quran as a great prophet in Islamic Christology.
The research and findings of our thesis are derived from the roots of both religions, and the comparison of their common points. This phase of our studyis of key importance for the later development and conception of revelation.
Our thesis is purely theoretical founded on elements of a comparative and synthetic method to identify, describe and explain the differences and the common points of today's two major religions and their protagonists.
