Who Is Allah?

There are 256016 comments on the The Brussels Journal story from Aug 24, 2007, titled Who Is Allah?. In it, The Brussels Journal reports that:

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

No one has claimed to an expert translator. The problem with you is that you have no knowledge of Hebrew, Aramaic and te non-scriptural language Greek.
Hebrew, Aramaic and Arabic are very close. Idioms, figuratives, etc are strikingly similar. And that is why we can easily understand the context and true meanings of Jewish Scripture, without even knowing Hebrew.
By the way, there are many words, which are common among Hebrew, Aramaic and Arabic but there is nothing common between Hebrew and Greek.
We just want you to try and compare different translations and try to detect wrong insertions, forgeries, etc.
A very masterpiece post BMZ.

We can understand most of "aramaic words" which Jesus spoke and which are recoded "verbatim" in the NT books, even when we do not understand Aramaic as a language. The same holds for Hebrew.

And as you pointed out there is nothing common between Hebrew and Greek.

East is east and west is west and the twain shall never meet.

Christianity (of St. Paul) was an attempt to patch Western Ideas into an "eastern religion" preached by Jesus, and that is why there is so much confusion.

But your post was really brilliant.

Peter did not follow that so-called command at all.

Peter baptized ONLY in the name of Jesus.

You cannot deny this! Don't even try. OK?

How come that trinitarian formula for baptism was not mentioned in the other three gospels?

Thanks, MUQ for the compliment.

If Jesus' teachings were understood in his native language, there would have been no Christianity at all.

The Greek language ruined it all.

If Paul had not gone West (Turkey, Greece and Rome), this triune God would never have been concocted and created to win pagan converts for the religion founded by Constantine.

Which name are you referring too?

Jesus was called by many different names by his disciples. Including the Messiah, Master, the one promised by the prophets and rabbi. While many of his disciples may have been uneducated fisherman they seemed to know that he was the one promised in the Old Testament.

Jesus in Matthew 28:19 gave the disciples the command to baptize
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Which name was I referring to? I did not ask you the various names of Jesus.

The question was: Under whose name did Peter baptize the people?

And my post showed that Peter did not baptize folks in the name of the three. So, it is quite obvious that Matthew 28:19 was a forgery.

Under whose name did John baptize Jesus?

Read mu post.
It may be added that this interpretation accords with the connection in which the word occurs. Though it may be admitted that the connection would not "necessarily" lead to this view, yet this interpretation is in entire harmony with the statements in the previous verses, and in the following verse. Thus, in the previous verse, the psalmist had said that "his flesh would rest in hope," - a sentiment which accords with either the idea that he would at some future period be raised from the grave, and would not perish forever, though the period of the resurrection might be remote; or with the idea of being raised up so soon that the body would not return to corruption, that is, before the change consequent on death would take place. The sentiment in the following verse also agrees with this view. That sentiment is, that there is a path to life; that in the presence of God there is fulness of joy; that at his right hand there are pleasures forevermore - a sentiment, in this connection, founded on the belief of the resurrection from the dead, and equally true whether the dead should be raised immediately or at some remote period. I infer, therefore, that the apostles Peter and Paul made a legitimate use of this passage; that the argument which they urged was derived from a proper interpretation of the language; that the fair construction of the psalm, and the fact that David "had" returned to corruption, fully justified them in the application which they made of the passage; and that, therefore, it was the design of the Holy Spirit to convey the idea that "the Messiah" would be raised from the dead without undergoing the change which others undergo in the grave; and that it was thus "predicted" in the
Utter nonsense!

There is no mention of a Messiah in the Torah. Only a prophet was foretold.

And there is no mention in the Jewish Scriptures of a messiah, who was to be a son of God, who would die and get resurrected.

Please stop lying and start thinking hard.

Your salvation is only from the Jews as Jesus said. So please listen to Jesus, revert to Judaism and start going to synagogues.

I am yet to see any religion with roots so weak and shallow as Pauline Christianity.

No doubt Jews have totally neutralized Christianity in the west, there is no Christian Scholar worth his name who can stand to Jews in any religious debate and hold his ground even for 5 minutes.

For three years, the disciples could not understand a thing of what Jesus spoke. How much could Jesus teach and how much could they have learned within a short walk on the track?
In Acts 2, Peter lies boldly by saying, "32 God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it."
He and other disciples were not witnesses to the alleged resurrection.
And here I am opening your mind on the broadband, to show the deliberately twisted and distorted translations in the OT.
Jesus appeared to all the apostles and St Thomas on seeing Him proclaimed: "My Lord and my God!!!" All the diciples and hunderds of others were witnesses to Jesus' resurrection. Jesus preached to the people for 40 days after His resurrection before He ascended into heaven; from where He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

Jesus goes into the tomb on Friday eve. That is 24 hours on Saturday eve. Left early morning on Sunday, say 12 hours.
Total time in: 24 + 12 = 36 hours
NOBODY saw Jesus getting up! Your scripture agrees with me.
The guards saw Jesus rise from the tomb after the angel rolled back the stone from the enterence. Praise be to God!!!

The only liar is you muztard.
The very word "synagogue" is a Greek word.

The word "synagogue" itself comes from Koine Greek, a language spoken by Hellenized Jews across Southeastern Europe (Macedonia, Thrace, Northern Greece) and the MENA area after the 3rd century BCE. Many synagogues were built by the "Hellenistai" or adherents of Hellenistic Judaism in the Greek Isles, Cilicia, Northwestern and Eastern Syria and Northern Israel as early as the first century BCE - notably in Delos, Antioch, Alexandretta, Galilee and Dura-Europos: because of the mosaics and frescos representing heroic figures and Biblical characters (viewed as potentially conductive of "image worship" by later generations of Jewish scholars), many of these early synagogues were at first mistaken for Greek temples or Greek Orthodox Churches.
