The aim of the essay is to give an overall picture of Jesus in the Qur’ān, throughout the Qur’ānic accounts: his prophetic role during the mission God gave him on earth and at the End of Times, amongst the stories of the other prophets. Specifically, the narrative of Jesus has been “rebuilt”, by starting from brief verses distributed in different Qur’ānic contexts, in order to give an exhaustive account of him and other characters connected to him. vFurthermore, stress has been placed on the philological and linguistic aspects, by focusing the analysis on the Arabic version of the Qur’ān, with the intention of examining attributes and keywords related to Jesus, so as to attempt to present his personal profile and his involvement as a divine envoy
