Jesus and Muhammad

F. E. Peters

Oxford University Press

This chapter traces what might be called the “Second Act” in the lives of the two religious figures: the historical circumstances of Jesus’ last days in Jerusalem and the plot against his life, his Last Supper, arrest, trial, execution and burial. Muhammad escaped his own execution by a flight/migration (hijra) to oasis Medina where he becomes, by invitation, the head of the polity there. A prophet became an aggressive general and a skilled statesman for the ten years before his death from natural causes.

Keywords:   Jesus, Jerusalem, triumphal entry, Last Supper, crucifixion, Muhammad, hijra, Medina, Quran, Jews, Badr Wells
