Who Is Allah?

There are 256382 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?”

Well he's as STUPID as a muztard.
I have just proven to you with archaeological evidence that Greek was the dominant language in the time of Jesus in the Holy Land.
Jesus lived in Nazareth, a short walk to the much larger Greek city of Sepphoris.
It would be "absurd and a big lie" if Jesus did not speak Greek very well.
This fool is making silly remarks without a full stop!

*** They haven't a brain cell between the whole bunch of "holy" church men. That's why they HAD to STEAL the books from the JEWISH people to give themselves some desperately needed credibility!

---What do they do in return by way of "thank you"?
---They believe their own made up lies and nearly WIPE OUT the Jewish race as Christ killers!!

*** There is something else this fool should know...

---If not for Islam there will be 2billion more people who would be questioning this mythical BJ asking questions like
"DID HE EXIST AT ALL?"!!!!!!!!!!

*** Now that would certainly stick a few cats among the already constipated pigeons!!!

All of this started with BMZ's comment that Greek was not a scriptural language. Furthermore, Eric pointed out that the NT is not a revealed text.
Nothing of consequence has been introduced by those posters to alter any of the above statements of fact.
The NT brings the final Word of God to man.
The Tanakh begins and ends with the NT.
Gods final words to man.

THE TRUTH is as we all know here is that the truth is that JEESUS spoke in the language of the BIBLE. Which he wrote down during the times when he wasnt doing other important stuff at the time that took first place first because that is what he was doing then that needed to get done before writing any books. The BIBLE that has been passed down is in ENGLISH..so you gaots to know without tooo much pain in the brain that the book was written as you read it in ENGLISH. Now he dint go to no any UNIVERSTIES where they study stuff that nobody cares about or gets and they wont let you in unless you prtend you care and they want your tax dollars to pay for and to tax the upper classes for to. My state rep says we will win everything then everbody will either understand what is what or get gone.

This is a New Angle that Jesus spoke Greek!!
Then what about those words of Jesus preserved in Aramaic in the Gospels?
Just displaying his "dual language skills"?
How you translate 'Eli, Eli Lama Sabaqtani" in Greek?
The problem is when you speak one lie, to justify it you have to speak more than hundred lies and still the lie will be lie!!
Why malign the name of Jesus and involve him into controversy about which he knew nothing?
Christianity is already weakest of world religions to justify the "innovations of St. Paul"....why you want to weaken its further by "manufacturing truth"?
LMAO!
Muhammad was no prophet of God.
Muslims are the wild beast of the world.
You are a Muhammadan MUQ.
Muslims preaching that Muhammad was a man of God is shameful.
St. Paul was chosen by Jesus to be an Apostle of God.
Paul was instructed and taught by the Holy Spirit of Jesus to preach the risen Jesus the Son of God.

That is the good news of the Gospels of Jesus.

Christ lived in a Hellenised world.
This has been known for 2000 years.
The Jews of the time of Christ spoke Greek.
The gospels were written in Greek.
The words "Eli, Eli Lama Sabaqtani" are the only time he is quoted as speaking anything other than Greek, and then it is translated into Greek.
Face it wog, your bullshit about Greek being "non scriptural" is a joke.
Horse Shit!

Clueless Ignorant Fool!

Greek was the language of scholars, administrators, and the upper classes
no Jew would discuss his religion using Greek,
the Talmud has the mishnah part in Hebrew, the gemara part in Aramaic

inscribing epitaphs on tombstones was NOT a Jewish custom
only the elite hellenized Jews practised it, hence the majority of Greek inscriptions found

So, if the word is final, you don't believe in the coming of the Messiah.[Second coming for those of the Christian faith.]

That is not the Tanakh. That is the mutilation and forgery known as the Old Testament.

What can be said from your post is that you are not a Christian. You need to put on the new man in Christ to properly understand Sacred Scripture. You are going about in the futility of your own thinking.
You are also off-topic like a true Christian.

I wrote this, so please address the points that I have brought up.

"The true Scripture would have said, "Do not give to Caesar what does not belong to him and do not throw your pearls to Caesar and stand up for your rights!"

I do not believe that Jesus made such a stupid statement.

If he did, then he was being diplomatic!

It is a forgery and was added in to please HM Constantine and appease the Romans."

A man like Jesus, who stood up to Pilate and the San Hedrin, cannot be expected to make that silly statement like a wimp!

The verse shows Jesus as a hypocrite, who either tried to gain favour from the Romans or bent backwards to appease them. I don't like that silly and absurd verse. In other words, he submitted to the Roman occupation.

There is not even a word from Jesus on Paul. He did not even mention the Satan's minion to his disciples.

Paul was the Apostle of Satan.

When Jesus was handed over to Satan for getting tested and certified fit, Satan checked and found out that Jesus was not the son of God but Satan always had wanted to give God a son.

And Satan did achieve that finally through his minion Paul, who saw Satan masquerading as Jesus.

The so-called Holy Spirit taught nothing! In fact, like an evil and a lying spirit, it misinformed many.

Example: Mathew 28:19 and Acts 2:38

It shows you are not a born again Christian and so can not understand God, Jesus. The NT is perfect and correct as it is written and has no need of your commentary.

The Old Testament is a mutilated and circumcised copy of a very poor translation in Greek, known as the Septuagint. And latin Vulgate is a very poor copy of the Septuagint.

You believe that rape, robbery, and Murder is the character of God.
For you accept those evil deeds of rape, robbery, and murder committed by Muhammad as righteousness unto God.

But you admitted you dont follow the Greek. Nor do you read the Syriac.

What you are left is an English translation - flawed and mangled.

If you actually followed the Greek I could see a tiny spot of merit on your argument.

You bypassed his assertion, which is actually based on a standard.

We have a standard - the Hebrew. We also have a Greek version. And then we have your version. When you compare your version with the Greek and the Hebrew we see the flaws.
