Based on the Ayat Allah Numbers 16 and 17, what new insights have you gained regarding Isa Al Massih? What is the effect of this new knowledge about him on you?
The Noble Qur'an states that Isa Al Massih "was no more than a servant." Yet "We granted Our favour to him," Allah said, "and We made him an example to the Children of Israel." Surah 43:59. As decreed by Allah to be His servant, Isa Al Massih responded by saying: "The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." Matthew 20:27 To serve Allah and humanity has been the chief philosophy of Isa Al Massih.
Though he was still an infant, Isa Al Massih gave the following testimony which is a summary of his earthly life: "I am indeed a servant of God: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet. And He hath made me blessed wheresoever I be, and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live; (He) hath made me kind to my mother, and not overbearing or miserable; So peace is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)!" Surah 19:30-33.
