This chapter explores how the two religions of Christianity and Islam perceive the role of Jesus Christ. It also examines how Christians discuss the role of Jesus and how the Muslims respond. It seeks to identify the theological nuances in the doctrinal debates from the eighth century onwards and how the poetical references to Jesus reflect a certain kind of empathy. It then asks whether the theology of the cross have any significance for a Muslim in the present time.
