Why is Jesus Christ honored in the Quran more than any other prophet of Islam?

As a Born-Again Christ-follower, I think that the god of Islam should honor prophet Mohammed more than Isa Al Massih.

You are wrong:

Of all the Prophets cited in the Quran, The Prophet Moses is talked about the most, even more than Prophet Muhammad, within the Quran, his life, journies, and relationships with the children of Israel is spoken about more than other Prophets.

176 Verses in the Quran mention the name of Prophet Moses:


002.051 002.053 002.054 002.055 002.060 002.061 002.067 002.068 002.069 002.071 002.087 002.092 002.108 002.136 002.246 002.248 003.003 003.084 003.093 004.153 004.164 005.020 005.022 005.024 005.044 006.084 006.091 006.154 007.103 007.104 007.107 007.115 007.116 007.117 007.122 007.127 007.128 007.131 007.132 007.134 007.138 007.142 007.143 007.144 007.148 007.150 007.151 007.154 007.155 007.159 007.160 010.075 010.077 010.080 010.081 010.083 010.084 010.087 010.088 010.089 011.017 011.096 011.110 014.005 014.006 014.008 017.002 017.101 017.102 018.060 018.062 018.064 018.066 018.069 018.071 018.073 018.074 018.076 018.077 019.051 020.009 020.011 020.017 020.019 020.025 020.036 020.040 020.045 020.049 020.057 020.059 020.061 020.065 020.067 020.070 020.077 020.083 020.086 020.088 020.091 020.092 020.095 020.097 021.048 021.105 022.044 023.045 023.049 025.035 026.010 026.018 026.020 026.024 026.026 026.028 026.030 026.032 026.043 026.045 026.048 026.052 026.053 026.061 026.062 026.063 026.064 026.065 026.066 027.007 027.009 027.010 028.003 028.007 028.008 028.010 028.011 028.015 028.018 028.019 028.020 028.029 028.030 028.031 028.036 028.037 028.038 028.043 028.044 028.046 028.048 028.076 029.039 032.023 033.007 033.069 037.114 037.120 040.023 040.026 040.027 040.037 040.053 041.045 042.013 043.046 043.052 043.054 046.012 046.030 051.038 053.036 061.005 062.005 079.015 079.020 087.019

I am asking why prophet Isa Al massih is the most highly HONORED prophet of the Quran?  This is not about how many times a prophet is "talked about" in the Quran.

Each prophet has their own status and honor.

Prophet Mohammad was the last Prophet and was given the glorious Qur'an.

Prophet 'Eesa (Jesus) had a miraculous birth and will return in the end times to fight the kings of the earth.

Prophet Moosa (Moses) was protected by Allah from the pagan Egyptians and saved the sons of Israel from the Pharaoh and had many great miracles.

Prophet Dawood (David) was a King and was given the holy book of Zaboor.

Prophet Sulayman (solomon) was given power and authrity over the Jinn and Shayateen whom he used to build magnificant structures.

Prophet Ibraheem (Abraham) was the builder of the Ka'bah and the father of Arabs and Israelites.

and so on...

They were all great men.

Yes, he is wrong and you are absolutely correct. Moses is the most talked about in Qur'aan. Qur'aan also addresses the Children of Israel and talks a lot about them. Muhammad's name can be found only four times in the entire Qur'aan.

The Lord Almighty honoured all the prophets in Qur'aan.

However, if you are saying that Jesus is the most honoured in Qur'aan, then you better read this: 

Qur'aan tells us that Yahya (John the Baptist), was the first prophet whom the Lord Almighty, for the first time, had called by that name and his parents name him.

Another prophet, who was raised to the loftiest stature in the sight of the Lord Almighty, was Enoch (Idrees).

Compare that with Jesus. He was supposed to be named Immanuel by his mother but unfortunately, instead of being named Immanuel, he was named Jesus by people but is not remembered by his real name. He is remembered with a Greek name.

Surah 18
1.
Praise be to Allah, Who hath sent to His Servant the Book, and hath allowed therein no Crookedness:

2. (He hath made it) Straight (and Clear) in order that He may warn of a terrible Punishment from Him, and that He may give Glad Tidings to the Believers who work righteous deeds, that they shall have a goodly Reward,

3. Wherein they shall remain for ever:

4. Further, that He may warn those (also) who say, "(Allah) hath begotten a son":

5. No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. It is a grievous thing that issues from their mouths as a saying what they say is nothing but falsehood!

6. Thou wouldst only, perchance, fret thyself to death, following after them, in grief, if they believe not in this Message.

Who or what prompts you to enlist in the hordes of Gog and Magog?

In this context the Qur'an warns:

"Upon this day when their faces are turned about in the fire, they shall say: 'Ah, would we had obeyed God and the messenger!' They shall say: 'Our Lord, we obeyed the chiefs and great ones, and they led us astray from the way. Our Lord, give them chastisement twofold, and curse them with a mighty curse" [ Qur'an, "The Confederates", chapter 33:66].

The next verse admonishes:

"O believers, be not as those who hurt Moses, but God declared him quit of what they said, and he was high honored with God" [Qur'an, "The Confederates", chapter 33:68].
