Did Jesus Say That He Is God?

One of the most famous points of debate between Muslims and Christians is the nature of Jesus. Is Jesus God? To answer this question, we must refer to what Jesus himself said, as no one knows about Jesus more than what he knows about himself.

In the Gospel of John, verse 17:3, Jesus was clear in showing that the Father is the only true God. This is a clear proof that Jesus is not God. Christians believe that the Father is not Jesus as they are two different persons although they are one God. Actually those who believed that the Father is the son were a heretic sect that appeared in the third century. So if Jesus is not the Father, and the Father is the only true God, the conclusion will be that Jesus is not God.

This is what Jesus understood, he tells that he is a man telling the truth he heard from God. He frequently calls himself the son of man. This proves that Jesus is not God, since the Old Testament never said that God shall become a man. On the other hand, it tells in Numbers 23:19 that God is neither a man nor the son of man. If Jesus is God, didn’t he know what the Old Testament says?

But was Jesus asked this question? Did anyone accuse him of saying that he is God? Yes, the Jews did it. Jesus answered them and denied that he is God. When he was asked that question by the Jews in John 10:33, he quoted Psalm 82:6, which tells that some mere men in the Old Testament were called gods and sons of God. Did anyone believe that Psalm 82:6 is a blasphemy? No. Did anyone believe that these people were God the Creator? No. So why did the Jews consider calling Jesus son of God a blasphemy? This is simply proving that calling Jesus the son of God is the same as calling these people gods and sons of God. Both are not taken literally. This is a clear denial by Jesus that he is God.

Jesus never said that he can do anything by his own power, but he was always referring to the Father’s power. Jesus said that he doesn’t know the hour, only the Father knows it. He even needed an angel to strengthen him. God doesn’t need His creatures. Jesus says that the Father is greater than him. He is simply denying that he is equal to God. So how do we say that Jesus is God?

Does Islam Give a Guarantee to Heaven?

#Islam gives us a guarantee to#Heaven if we were on the right way leading to Heaven. #Allah says in the#Quran:
9. Allāh has promised those who believe and do righteous deeds [that] for them there is forgiveness and great reward. (Holy Quran 5:9)

But we can’t guarantee that we shall stay on the right way, that’s why Muslims pray to Allah 17 times a day saying:
6. Guide us to the straight path –

7. The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray. (Holy Quran 1:6-7)

Bible Manuscripts are Late Hence Unreliable

Do Bible Manuscripts Prove its Authenticity?

Does the Bible really have evidence through manuscripts?

This photo is for the oldest fragment that contains some verses in Gospel #John. It’s called (John Ryland’s) manuscript and #Christians say that it refers to about 125 AD, which is about 50 years from the date Christians says that it is the date of writing the #Gospel. So we actually have at least 50 years gap from the suggested date of writing the #Gospels. And these are only some words in about 5 verses not the whole Gospel, as the oldest manuscript for the complete#Newtestament is about 240 years from the suggested writing date.

We don’t know what happened through these years, manipulation and distortion of the message of Jesus during these 240 years is very easy especially when we know that many Christian sects, beliefs and tens (may be even hundreds) of gospels were already present at this time, we cannot conclude who was true and who was false, and that’s why we cannot trust the Bible, simply because it lacks evidence. When we compare this with the science of Isnad in the Quran and Sunna where gaps is not accepted at all we can understand how #God preserved the Quran.

Jesus Is Muslim

If you came to a Christian and said to him: ” Jesus is Muslim”. He may stare at you and say: ” Are you kidding me? How do you say that Jesus is Muslim?!! Jesus is actually a Jew who came 600 years before Islam.”

This shall be his immediate answer because he doesn’t understand what Islam is. Islam is simply telling that there is only one God. He is only God whom we should worship and pray to and there is no other God beside Him. He is God who sent His prophets to the world to tell people about Him. God sent Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus, Muhammad and many other prophets (Peace be upon them all). All these prophets came to teach people about God and guide them to God’s right way.

The main teaching these prophets were concerned with in their message is that God is one. God is the one whom people should direct their worship to. God is the one whom they should love more than anything else. God is the only one whom they should rely on. God is the only one whom they should fear. This is the main message of all prophets because this is what shall guide people to happiness in this world and in the Hereafter. If people left God and went to anything else, they will lose happiness in this world and after they die. This is the reason why all prophets came and this what Islam teaches. That’s why all prophets including Jesus are Muslims.

Jesus’ main message was to tell people that there is only one God. Jesus never said that he is god, but actually Jesus said the father is the only true god. Jesus said that the eternal life is to know that the Father is the only true God and that Jesus was sent by God, which means that he is just a prophet sent from God. Jesus never mentions the Trinity, Jesus says that he is a man and son of man, while the Old Testament says that God is neither a man nor the son of man. Jesus says that the Father is greater than him, and that he can do nothing by himself except what is through the will of the Father. Jesus says that the Father is his God.

This is actually the message of Islam and the Quran, and this is what Islam actually tells about Jesus, the Quran tells that Jesus says that Allah is my God and your God, so worship Him, the Quran says that Jesus denies that he said that he is God, and Jesus in the Bible never said that he is God, but kept on confirming that the Father is the only true God. Even when he was called the son of God in the Bible, others were also called sons of God, and Jesus said that God is your Father. Although Muslims don’t agree on the idiom “Father and son”, but at the end it doesn’t point that Jesus is God as others were called sons as well.

This is the belief of Islam, and this is what Jesus confirmed even in the Bible, that’s why Muslims say that “Jesus is Muslim”. Jesus believes as Muslims believe. Yes, Islamic law is different from the law of Moses. But this is because laws may change with time and place, as what Prophet Muhammad said that prophets are paternal brothers, they have one faith but different laws. So Jesus is Muslim because he has the same faith of Muslims although he may have a different law.
