Jesus – the only perfect man. He was the only human being to walk upon this earth and be blameless before the eyes of God. In fact, He is God! He lived the life that we should have lived and died the death that we deserved. He was the only perfect man. Praise Him for what He’s done for us! Praise Him for the cross.
There’s something amazing about God. He is perfect, and He is just, but it is in His nature to love. It’s in His nature to love even when it hurts Him.
You can read an excerpt of Samy Tanagho’s book below. It’s called ‘Glad News! God Loves You My Muslim Friend.’
The Gospel, in Luke 4, teaches that Satan tempted Jesus to act independently from God’s will and offered the kingdoms of the world if He worshiped him. Unlike Adam and Eve, who lost their relationship with God through their disobedience, Jesus had complete victory over Satan’s temptations to sin.
In the Gospel, Jesus is recognized as the perfect man who submitted every moment of His life to the will of God.
All other people throughout human history have yielded to Satan’s temptations and have sinned regularly. Jesus was the only exception. According to the teaching of both the Qur’an and the Gospel, Jesus was the only man to live a life without committing one single sin.
Because Jesus alone lived His life in perfect obedience to God, He is the only One able to restore us to a right relationship with God.
