Two thousand years ago, when narrow pride and thick ignorance defiled mankind, Jesus came as the embodiment of love and compassion and lived among men, holding forth the highest ideals of life. He was a divine born with a purpose, the mission of restoring love, charity and compassion in the hearts of man. He had no attachment to self, nor paid any heed to joy or sorrow, loss or gain. He had a heart that responded to the call of anguish, and he went about the land preaching the lessons of love. Jesus transformed many sinners into saints.
Jesus is also mentioned in the Qur'an, where his name is Isa.
The Qur'an also has a lot of material on the Second Coming of Jesus, whom Muslims call Isa.
