(This is the only known image of John Toland)
John Toland (1670 – 1722) was one of the greatest theologians and philosophers of the eighteenth century. Here is an incredible quote on Jesus in Islam from his works Nazarenus: Or Jewish, Gentile, and Mahometan Christianity, London, 1718.
“What Mahometans believe concerning Christ and his doctrine were not the inventions of Mahomet … but they were as old as the time of the Apostles, having been the sentiments of whole Sects or Churches.”
*Please note that Mahometan was the common word for Muslim during that era
