Muslims, Let's Talk
This life is too short and the next one is too long for us not to talk about our relationship with the one who created us.  
 
Claims Jesus made                                                   

3. Jesus' authority is above God's law     Jesus' disciples plucked ears of corn to eat on a Sabbath day, an activity which the Pharisees condemned as against the law of the Sabbath. Jesus defended His disciples' actions by saying, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath" (Mark 2:23-28).

4. The risen Christ is God's new temple     Jesus cleansed the temple of the money changers and responded to the Jews' demand for a sign to justify His actions by saying, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days" (John 2:18-19). Some of Jesus' accusers repeated these words as a main charge against Him when Jesus appeared before the Sanhedrin (Matthew 26:61). After Jesus' resurrection His disciples finally understood that "the temple he had spoken of was his [resurrected] body" (John 2:21).
