In the Abrahamic religions, God is all-important. Nothing comes before God.
In Islam and maybe Judaism, Jesus is considered a prophet, and should be revered because he helps one interact with God - but God is the most important thing. Jesus is important because he helps people interact with God.
In Christianity, Jesus IS God - so your question doesn't make sense. However, paraphrased, you could ask if Jesus the Son or God the Father is more important. They are different parts of the same thing I guess. Jesus is the guy you're supposed to interact with for the most part I think. God the Father is more involved with events that relate to the environment and giving orders like creation, plagues, transformations into salt, demanding obedience, etc.
It's kinda like Jesus is Mommy and God the Father is...well, the Father. The Holy Spirit would be the love they share with you or something in this tortured metaphor.
But I'm an atheist, what do I know? To me Jesus is a much nicer guy than God the Father.
