ESA(a.s) Jesus

 

An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

 

As Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
(Bible - Matthew - 12: 39, 40)

 

Most of the christian groups proclaimed that "Jesus died for our sins" but the Quran says Jesus was neither crucified nor did he die. It was made to appear so.

 

That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah.;-  but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not.... no indeed; God raised him up to Him; God is Almighty, All-Wise.
(Qur’an 4:157)

 

 

Quran says he was neither crucified - In the sense that Jesus did not die on the cross; only people who died on the cross would be termed as crucified. Since Jesus did not die, the Quran rightly says Jesus was not crucified. Also, what the Quran says is right, since the bible and Jesus through his own words proves it.

 

The Quran challenges people that if it is not the words of God then to prove at least a single fault in it. Great scholars have been researching for many a century but with no luck, none had been able to find any fault, not even a single fault, whatsoever till date in the Quran.

 

Now, coming to Jesus - The Quran says, he did not die but God raised him up to the heavens and God says in the Quran he was made to appear to be dead. For, if he did not appear to be dead to the soldiers, they would have broken his limbs and mutilated his body to kill him (bible John 19:33,34) but since he appeared dead, they let him be in one peice. Great scientists on the human anatomy had researched this matter that blood and water flowed out from Jesus’  body when the soldier pierced the body of Jesus by his spear to confirm if there be any movement and since there was no movement whatsoever, they assumed that he had died and they also said that he had died quickly indeed, and took his body down, they had to take the body of Jesus down before the day break, as the following day was the Sabbath day for the Jews and they were not allowed to keep anybody on the Cross on their Sabbath day, that was the reason they wanted to bring down the body immediately from the cross.

 

This blood and water that flowed out of the body of Jesus when the spear was pierced, the scientists say only proves that Jesus was still alive though he appeared dead to the Soldiers as blood would immediately coagulate in a dead body and if Jesus was dead, there was no chance for the blood to have flowed out of his body, When pierced with the spear and further state that the flowing blood very much confirms that Jesus was very much alive though he appeared dead to the soldiers. Thereby confirming the Quranic statement that God made Jesus appear to be dead:

 

but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them,”
(Quran:4-157)

 

But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.
 Bible (John 19: 33, 34)

 

 

Jesus in his own words said when the evil and adulterous generation of people kept running behind him asking him to show magic, he gets very upset and says there are no more signs,  all are over, except one and only one sign that is to be shown that will be exactly like the sign of prophet Jonas. Just as Jonas was thrown from a ship but he did not die. The whale swallowed him but he did not die. He was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly being digested in the fish's enzyme and tortured in the fish's belly but he was alive. On the third day, the whale vomited him out and he was still alive and Jesus says, this will be the final sign for me; just as Jonas was tortured I too will be tortured on the cross but I will be alive. They will bury me in the earth, I will not die but I will be alive. I will remain three days and three nights in the womb of the earth. I will not die but I will be alive. On the third day, I will come out of the grave and I will still be alive. Jesus in his own words clearly proves and states that he will not die after all the tortures on the cross and burial in the grave but he will be raised up to God. The Quran confirms to this. Now, how can any true Christian refute these words of Jesus and claim the contrary that he died and that too he died for OUR sins.

 

Jesus came to this world to show the people to lead a pious life, refrain from sins, and to seek forgiveness for sins. Being such, how could such a man claim to encourage people to do sin, saying "I will take your sins or I will die for your sins". Nobody dies nor can anybody take the sins of others, each person would be accountable for their own sins and not the others sins. Also, If Jesus had died then what he said would be completely false – the last sign would not be like the sign of Prophet Jonas – for Jonas was alive right through the venture and Jesus also says that I too would be alive right through the venture. If Jesus has died, it would not at all be like the sign of Prophet Jonas.

 

Jesus says "I am the path", meaning, that he brought the path of salvation from God to show a clear path away from hell, but a path to God and paradise. This is what all the messengers of God claimed to do. All of them said we are the path and only by this path you can reach God and heaven and paradise. Jesus did not differ in any way from any of the other messengers though he was born without a father. God says the creation of Jesus was in likeness to Adam.

 

the likeness of Jesus with God is as the likeness of Adam. He created him of dust, then He said unto him: Be! and he is
(Quran – 3:59)

 

 

 Just as Adam did not have a father and mother but was created by God himself, Jesus too did not have a father and was created by God himself. Just as Adam was a messenger of God, so also Jesus was a messenger of God and both were human beings chosen to be messengers of the Almighty God and they had all the human needs just as any other human being. If just because Jesus did not have a father he is entitled to be the Son of God then in that case Adam has much more right to be called the Son of God as he did have neither a father nor a mother. But, he was just a messenger of God just as Jesus was.

 

As for the Comforter:

And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
Bible: John- 14:16

 

Here in the above statement  - Jesus (peace be upon him) states very clearly that he will pray to God to give us ANOTHER Comforter

 

But the Comforter, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Bible: John- 14:26

 

The above verse is very clear that Jesus would pray to God, Who would in turn send down the Comforter who would remind the people of all the things that Jesus said and make TRUTH of all that Jesus had said – tell me who could do this can the holy Ghost do this- NEVER – only a person who could converse freely with the human beings would ever be able to do this it has to be a Prophet of God and this Prophet was Mohammed(s.a.w) for the Hebrew word for Comforter is “Paracletos” or “Periclytos”, and the literal translation means “Praise worthy” and the Arabic name “Mohammed” also means ‘Praise worthy’ and for the past  - 1400 years no man has come to the standard of Prophet Mohammed who spoke of Jesus in the most high standard and made TRUTH of all that Jesus said;  this too proves that Mohammed (s.a.w) has been foretold in the Bible and there are many places where the coming of Prophet Mohammed(s.a.w) has been foretold in the Bible and we can be sure that the Comforter is Mohammed the Prophet and none else.

 

 

 At this juncture, we make it clear to you that at any given time, there will be one true revelation from God and only one. Only when a revelation gets corrupted, perverted, and polluted, God sends another prophet or messenger of God and gives him a clear revelation to show mankind a clear path to peace, prosperity, victory, and success in this world and the next and above all, to God and paradise towards an eternal, blessed life. The bible got totally corrupted, perverted, and polluted beyond recognition. Nobody knows which are the words of the lord and which are the words of men in the bible. Only when the bible brought by Jesus was totally mutilated, corrupted, perverted, and polluted beyond recognition, in contrast to the pure and holy bible which Jesus brought and gave to mankind, did God Almighty in His great mercy and benevolence send Muhammad (s.a.w) with the pure and holy Quran which to date remains in its pristine purity and will remain so till the end of the earth and it will be common sense to follow the pure and holy scripture which will remain pure as there is no necessity for a new revelation when the Revelation of God is kept pure by itself. Even when Jesus comes the second time, he will not bring a new revelation but will follow the Quran which will remain pure and unadulterated and complete till the end of the earth.

 

God Almighty says about the Quran:

Had it been from other Than God, they would surely have found therein Much discrepancy.
(Quran 4:82).

 

Almighty God challenges the entire Mankind and Jinn and says if they refute this statement that the Quran was not from God then He, God challenges them to find a single fault in it. And also says that if it was not from God then they would have been able to find a lot of faults and mistakes in it, but since it is from Almighty God they will never never be able to find a single fault in it.(aameen).

 

This life is very very short and God Almighty in his endless Mercy and Benevolence has given us a wonderful opportunity to use our Common Sense and seek the Universal Truth that has been brought by messengers after messengers; Prophets after Prophets of God, revelations after revelations advising us and teaching us to worship the God Almighty Our ONE and ONLY Creator and not to associate any partners with Him.

 

Wishing you ALL THE VERY BEST
