Who Is Allah?

“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?”

I believe that after rescuing Jesus and moving him to safety, God gave Satan the authority to see what best he could do.
Satan succeeded and with the help of his minions, founded Christianity. You should praise Satan.
God, Emanuel, is with His Christian people. Jesus brought about His victory over the pagan Roman gods, and further helped bring about the Kingdom of God. Praise be our Lord and God, Jesus the Christ.

islam lives in fear of Christianity for it knows how God over came the pagan gods of Roman and will one day over come the pagan gods of islam.

the gospel writers seriously mixed up Pesach with the Sukkot festival

No, you said the language was Greece. After claiming that CE meant BCE.

Even Hughbe made reference to the absurdity of your positions.

As I have said often, the gospel writers took as many prophecis as they could and forced the retelling of the life of Jesus into them. This one is even more egregious because they admit that the whole thing was contrived.

I know that you are in a better position to tell me how I do it given that you have the ability to speak on non-existent things.

I am going to repeat what I have said every year since I have been on this forum and several times a year. Now pay attention. I celebrate ONLY the commanded feast days so for example I shall be keeping Passover next Sunday. Do you know what is Passover? If so, are you planning to keep it?

Homer's poetry
of the Iliad and Odyssey were written in a sort of literary Ionic with some borrowed words from the other dialects. Ionic, became the first literary language of ancient Greece until the ascendancy of Athens in the late fifth century. Greek lyrical poetry and Ancient Greek Tragedy was written in Doric.

Attic Greek was a sub dialect of Ionic that belonged to the language of the Athenians for centuries. Classical Literature that survived is written in Attic Greek, this includes extant text of Plato and Aristotle .

Hellenistic Greek 'Koine'(meaning Common, also known as Biblical Greek) came from the colonization of Asian Minoans to Egypt and to the Middle East; this is where the language evolved into multiple dialects. Alexander the Great was instrumental in combining these dialects to make the 'Koine' dialect. As this allowed Alexander's combined Army to communicate with itself and the language also taught the inhabitants of the land he conquered, making Greek a world language. This then allowed the Greek language to flourish during the Hellenistic period.

From the beginning of the classical period, Greek has been written in the Greek alphabet, which was derived from the Phoenicians. This is clear from the shape of the letters, even Herodotus in his book of Histories, claimed the Greek alphabet included Phoenician styled letters in the alphabet, However, the Phoenician language only had letters for constants, which the Greeks adopted and evolved to included letters of sounds that were not included. Early Ancient Greek was also written from right to left, the same as the Phoenician.

The books of the Maccabees are counted among the apocryphal books of the Old Testament.

These books are not extant among the Hebrew scriptures, but rather in the Septuagint, abbreviated LXX.

Chapter 1.
Verses 15-16
And they built a place of xercise in Jerusalem, according to the laws of the nations, 16. and they made themselves prepuces, and departed from the holy covenant, and joined themselves to the heathens, and were sold to do evil.

They claim it is a wilderness, but you explain that to the lizards, the Jackrabbbits, and the 700 species of plants that grow there?

Do you understand that historical events are recorded in books other than scriptures?

Now I ask again, have you heard about the war between the Maccabees and the Assyrian Greeks?
