He didn't deny Jesus as a messenger, he denied him as THE CHRIST and SAVIOR of mankind.<quoted text>
Prophet Mohammad has never denied Jesus the Christ. He's one of the 124,000 prophets that have been sent to earth, and Islam does acknowledge he'll resurrect close to judgement day. What's your point?
Does that clarify for you?
Its like this: I don't deny that Muhammad lived and breathed and preached about a new religion (so in your version I am not DENYING him) but I am here to tell you (like Muhammed told everyone who followed him) He is not what everyone says he is, a "prophet".
Do you get the jist of how offensive Muhammeds so called 'recognition' of Jesus is?
