This chapter and the following look into the heart of the matter: the foundation messages of Jesus and Muhammad. Jesus’ was called the “Good News” and, though he worked wonders — chiefly cures and exorcisms — and preached a new morality, Jesus’ chief focus was, as it had been for John the Baptist before him, on the approaching End Time, the arrival of the Kingdom and the need for repentance. Jesus’ own place in that scenario was apparently, and perhaps reluctantly, messianic.
