20. For Readers of the Qur'an
The Names and Titles of Christ as Declared to Mary

2. 'Isa or Jesus?

In the Qur'an, the name of the Son of Mary is 'Isa. Some scholars state that this form of his name goes back to the Syrian pronunciation of the Aramaic word for Jesus. However, in the Gospel, the angel Gabriel ordered Joseph, his father by adoption, to call the newborn child "JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21). This unique name appears 975 times in the New Testament. In the Son of Mary, Allah prepared a perfect purification for all men from all their sins and the deliverance from God's wrath on the Day of Judgment. 'Isa was born to die as a substitute for all men, so that his atonement should justify whoever believes in him. The substitution for sinners is the mystery in the name of Jesus. For this reason he was born. God sanctifies, freely, whoever accepts the redemption of Christ, which is prepared for everybody. In the name of Jesus we find the great plan of God for justifying and renewing the world. This unique name also contains the power to execute this plan in all its details.
