Skip to comments.Professor: 'Jesus was a Muslim'
Posted on 07/11/2012 2:32:01 PM PDT by oliverdarcy
The head of the religion department at Luther College in Iowa recently argued that Jesus Christ, the central figure of Christianity, was in fact, a Muslim.
Was Jesus a Muslim?" asks Prof. Robert F. Shedinger in the beginning of a book he published this year entitled Was Jesus a Muslim? " I will answer with a very qualified yes."
In a recent interview Shedinger also defended his controversial thesis explaining that a Muslim undergraduate student had sent him on academic odyssey that culminated with him asking himself "Was Jesus a Muslim?"
"Even as a Christian I have to answer yes to that," said Shedinger, who is the head of the religion department at Luther College in Iowa.
Shedinger also argued that Islam is a better fit for Jesus since it is not a religion but a social justice movement.

Bye bye prof....
Jesus was a member of a faith not established until 600 years after his death?
Sure, and Moses was a Christian, and Mohammed a Scientologist.
Interesting considering Islam came some 600+ years after Christ.
Yashua was Muslim six hundred years before Mohammad?
Yep - beating women, beheading his enemies, building an army to conquer the middle east, owning slaves, marrying little girls - Jesus did all of that. :)
His Jewish mama would be surprised to hear this...
Actually I’ve seen this before in that profession.
Proof that the only qualification to be a professor these days is a crack pipe.
He gets one thing right.
No Martha, nothing is sacred any longer. Jesus was not a follower of Mohammed, but that won't stop them.
Jesus Heavenly Father was not of this earth. Jesus stated that His relationship with His Father, was the model for our relationship with Him.
I'm pretty sure Jesus would have mentioned Mohammad if he was 'in the loop', instead of just being looped.
Social Justice. This guy must live under a rock, have rocks for brains or both.
Yeah sure I can see the second one, but probably not the first, or the thing about Jesus being Muzzy.

...Islam is a better fit for Jesus since it is not a religion but a social justice movement.
Does that mean that Mohammed the camel humper and child molester was just another con artist?
