Are you Orthodox or not?ÂÂ  Christ was not a prophet, thats what Muslims think!

On several occasions Jesus speaks of himself as a prophet:

"A prophet is not without honour except in his home town and his own house" (Mathew 13:57) (Mark 6:4) and (Luke 4:24)

We also read:

"I must journey today, tomorrow and the day following for it cannot be that a prophet should perish outside of Jerusalem" (Luke 13:33)

"This is the prophet Jesus" (Mathew 21:11)

Luke 24
13 Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles[d] from Jerusalem. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. 16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.
17 And He said to them, “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him.

If Jesus was not a prophet then no man has ever been a prophet. Perhaps the 'unorthodox' position would be to deny the prophethood of Jesus. It is true that Christ is much more than just a prophet, but He was a prophet none the less.
