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?”

Let us study a prophecy, which the Lord gave to Moses concerning
the coming Messiah. The Moslem community maintains that this
prophecy concerns the coming of Muhammed, however the Bible states
clearly, to whom this Mosiac prophecy relates-Jesus Christ:
I will send them a prophet like you from among their own people; I
will tell him what to say, and he will tell the people everything I
command. He will speak in my name, and I will punish anyone who refuses to obey him.(Deut. 18:18-19)
In the age in which Jesus came, the Jewish Priests and Levites were
still excepting the appearance, of the one whom Moses called “the
Prophet.” So it is apparent that this prophecy was not fulfilled by any of
the Old Testament prophets, who had come before. For we find, the
Jews sending the Priests and Levites to John the Baptist, asking him if, may-be he himself was “the Prophet”
John did not refuse to answer, but spoke out openly and clearly, saying:
“I am not the Messiah.”“Who are you, then?” they asked.“Are you
Elijah?”“No, I am not,” John answered.“Are you the Prophet?” they asked.“No he replied.(John 1:19) So then, who was “the Prophet?”
In John 1:46 a man named Philip; an apostle, said to Nathanael,“We
have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth”– Yes, Jesus confirms that, He is indeed the one whom Moses spoke of and whom the Jews were looking for:
Jesus says,
“For had you believed Moses, you would have believed me; for HE WROTE OF ME.”(John 5:45-46)
Jesus again confirms, that it was He of whom Moses spoke:
And Jesus explained to them what was said about himself in all the
Scriptures, beginning with the books of Moses and the writings of all the prophets.(Luke 24:27)
The Apostle Peter also left no doubt in the minds of the Jews, while
referring to this prophecy in Acts, as concerning Jesus.
"For Moses truly said unto the fathers, a prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me (Paul declares it was Jesus) Acts 3:22
Muslims have misinterpreted the word brethen, claiming it means descendants of Ishamel. But the hebrew word is "ach" meaning "relative" or "same tribe" - thus he is speaking of the Jews not Ishmaelites.

Dear MUQ,
I have already done that over the years.
Which ever way you choose to read, the Bible cannot stand under the scrutiny. Very little grain but lots and lots of chaff.
I can stand all the lies and nonsense but the thing that irritates and annoys me most, is Matthew's lying account of the massacre of little kids ordered by Herod.
Thanks and salaams

I understand what you mean. The "poor Matthew", he had to compare Jesus with Moses and find "parallels between them" while there are no two personalities who are so different from each other as Moses and Jesus"!!

But I think you already know that Gospel of Matthews we have in our hands today was not written by Matthew , One of the Chosen Twelve Disciple of Jesus.

It is an anonymous book on which some "unknown hand" has put on title page "Gospel according to Matthew".

Hello, Christ-turd

We don't have to spin any thing. The Christian Bible can be spun anyone, one wants.

We were discussing the gospels. Actually none of them makes any sense and do not have any core message of any value.

What we have is the bullshit spun by the early Church fathers, which is still kept wet and damp by folks like your goodself.

By the way, do you seriously believe that Herod, a Jew, ordered the slaughter of little kids? Do you think Matthew was copying the script to talk about Pharoah?

That is correct, MUQ.

No one knows exactly, who wrote these gospels. Even Bishops agree that John was written by many Johns.

Luke and Matthew copied Mark wholesale. The Church realized this very late and John was ordered.

Yes, that is why they are called, "Gospel, according to.....".

Sr. Anne Catherine Emmerich saw it in vision, not that you believe her or would ever even read her "Life of Jesus Christ and Biblical Revelations" (See: http://www.tanbooks.com/index.php/page/shop:f... ), not when your "prophet's" word on the subject is sufficient for you.

I think the "best way" to read OT and NT books is to study them in the light of Quran.
In that way, you can straightaway see which portions are true and which are corrupted by human hands.
Any one studying in this way can separate grain from the lots and lots of chaff that human hands have inserted in the books of God.

Your "best way" is like using a counterfeit dollar bill to judge the authenticity of an original dollar bill. It's a backward and illogical argument, but its obvious why Muslims insist upon it, because the Qur'an contradicts the Hebrew and Christian scriptures that came before it. Of course, FEW if ANY Muslims would dare to even consider the possibility that Mohammad was decieved or misinformed by Waraqa, I mean, "Allah, via Jibreel."

So, what you have, comes from one called Anne catherine Emmerich, who came a thousand plus seven hundred years later.

Did you even read my post? My point was that we have nothing from Jesus' own mouth about his mother's conception and his birth, etc.

How come Jesus did not say anything to his disciples about the alleged Word, that he was already in Mary, when SHE was born and other junk and stuff?

I would really like to know how educated folks like you can accept funny stories and tales?

Wrong example.

Christian scripture fits the counterfeit dollar bill. You know well that it contradicts almost all the core values and teachings of the Hebrew Scriptures. Right?

The Hebrew Scriptures have no place fro the Christian scripture. Please note that well.

If you read Qur'aan and compare the core teachings of Qur'aan with those of the Torah, you will know that both are like the clean and crisp original dollar bill. Christian scripture proves to be the fake dollar bill under the Ultra-Violet scan.

A propagandist? You say?
The book was "unknown" until it came to light by "accident".
No Muslim knew about its existence, until it was "discovered" by Christians?
What type of picture of the "author" you want to paint?
A highly knowledgeable person with so deep knowledge of Gospels and OT books, write a book "hidden from people's eyes" and inserts it amongst Christian's books and vanishes away till his work is discovered centuries afterwards?
Are you talking of a Sherlock holmes case?
Where you thinking powers and imaginations go?
Ignorant Fool,

How many times do you need to be reminded that the best evidence suggests that your precious "Gospel of Barnabas" was written by a 16th century Christian convert to Islam, that is, by someone who knew the Gospel accounts well enough to rewrite them as a lying Muslim would do in the hope of fooling ignorant Christians into believing that his counterfeit account was the only TRUE one.

Is this any different than what bmz and MUQ have been doing day after day in this very thread when they post what "Jesus" or "God" should have said? You need to start thinking for a change.

Like if Quran or Koraaan doesn't contradict the Torah...

If you are gonna to say that the differences are due because the Torah is corrupt, then why an omniscient god would suggest to Muhammad if he has any doubt about the revelations he was receveing he can go and to Christians and Jews, that rely on corrupt books.

That's the way a bad done "counterfeit dollar bill" sounds like.

All that you have is the word of an Arabian who probably couldn't read a word of Latin or Greek or Hebrew or even Arabic, for that matter, but who did have EARS, so that when the "funny stories and tales" of the Christians were recounted to him "by Allah, via Jibreel," like, for example, the miraculous conception of Jesus and the miracles that he performed as an adult, he would have no choice but to believe the "funny stories and tales" and recite them for his scribes to dutifully record.

Of course, Jesus could not possibly have walked on water. That's an invention of "ignorant fools," besides being a violation of the known laws of physics!!!
