The person we know as Jesus is referred to in the Bible and the Quran. Except the Bible says he will return. Does the Quran teach the same thing ?

Yes. Islam teaches us that 'Isa عليه السلام‎ ('Jesus') will return. Allah سبحانه و تعالى told us that he was not killed but was raised up instead (still alive, didn't die). And He also tells us that death will come upon every person, including Jesus. So he will return to earth and die a normal death like all prophets before him. And the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم told us that he (Jesus) will descend to earth with his hands on Angels. Plus plenty of more proof.

Of course, the Bible & Qur'an differ on what is going to happen after he returns. Islam says (summary) that he will kill al-Masih ad-Dajjal ('Anti-Christ') and then all other religions except for Islam will cease to exist at that point. Peace & justice will prevail. Alhamdulillah. He will die a normal death, and the believers will bury and pray over him. (Things will eventually go downhill to the point that there are few believers left on earth - so God will take their souls.. and then the end will come upon disbelievers). Much more interesting stuff to be learned, so I suggest you do your own research on this.
