Recent historical Jesus research has focused on the origins and early transmission of traditions about Jesus within early Christianity, with particular attention to the historicity of those traditions and their potential for reconstructing the 'historical Jesus' of first-century Galilee. This paper traces the transmission of traditions about Jesus within early Islam, as one possible source for our understanding of how the early Christian traditions about Jesus were preserved and modified in different religious contexts.
