the role of Messiah dying on cross is the belief of Pauline Christians. Jews has their own belief on Messiah. Muslims has own belief regarding the Messiah which will be the same as the early followers of Messiah the (Nasoreans/Ebionites).

Messiah means....a leader regarded as the saviour of a particular country, group, or cause. Jesus, peace and blessings be upon him and his family, was given this title, and will attain this title more so when he returns, in his second coming. This will be when he tells the Christians the truth as to what they were previously believing in....in a false assumptions.
Messiah does not mean he has to die on a cross....who made up this assumption, ask them? this is nothing but conjecture and mindless hope and confusion on their part. Christians have no real recourse as to how to explain there own beliefs.

And because of their disbelief and of their speaking against Mary a tremendous calumny; And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah's messenger - they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain. But Allah took him up unto Himself. Allah was ever Mighty, Wise. There is not one of the People of the Scripture but will believe in him before his death, and on the Day of Resurrection he will be a witness against them - 4;156-159

As'salamu Alaikum Delita,

Tell them that the very Bible itself DECLARES that the Messiah will not be crucified.  Not only that, but GOD Almighty VOWED to save him from all harm:

www.answering-christianity.com/psalm_91.htm

The New Testament also clearly testifies that Jesus never died on any cross, nor ever died.  I personally believe that Jesus never even placed on the cross, because the Glorious Quran declares this and the Old Testament also fully supports this.  But even if we take the New Testament's position about Jesus was placed on the cross, then we still have ample passages from the NT declaring that Jesus never died on the cross.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

jesus said that I will preform a miracle like that of Jonnah. May Peace and blessing be upon both of them. With this fact in sha Allah it is easy to disprove the crucifixion.
Here is some more details:
