The understanding of Jesus in Islam is very unlike the mainstream Jewish tradition, in which he is regarded as a false Messiah, and the Mandean religion (which views John the Baptist as the faithful one, and Jesus as a trickster).
Jesus' message to mankind was originally the same as all of the other prophets, from Adam to Muhammad, but has been distorted by those who claim to be its adherents.
Jesus is alive in heaven and will return to the world in the flesh with Imam Mahdi to defeat the dajjal ("the deceiver", anti-Christ in Islamic belief), once the world has become filled with injustice.

Isa (عيسى) is the Islamic name for Jesus, who is considered to be one of the Prophets of Islam in the Qu'ran.
However, Muslims strongly disagree with the mainstream Christian belief mentioned in the Gospel of John that, as an embodiment of the divine logos, Jesus was hence divine himself, regarding it as a blasphemous denial of tawhid.
