(p.60) Chapter 2 God as One: Early Debates
Christians, Muslims and Jesus

Mona Siddiqui

Yale University Press

This chapter outlines how significant Muslim and Christian scholars who defended their doctrines of God's oneness and transcendence through their own defences as a response to one another's accusations. It explains that according to Christians, God himself was present in the person of Jesus, and thus the status of prophecy was superseded by the doctrine of Incarnation. For Muslims, Christ was to be considered only as a human and a prophet. It then presents what the theologians themselves were saying, as it is essential to understand how certain theological concepts became the defining points of discussion and polemics.

Keywords:   doctrine of Incarnation, Christians, Muslims, Jesus Christ, theological concepts
