Muslims in Islam / Islamia respect Jesus / Isa as a great prophet. Many proclaim a love of Jesus. And who better to tell us about Jesus than his best friend John the Apostle "whom Jesus loved"? For the Gospel according to John please click here.
Prefacing from Mark in the New Testament:
Mark 12:29 ... The Lord our God is one Lord: ... 32 ... for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
The famous Islamic entertainer Ahmed Deedat taught (video) that the First Epistle of John confirms Muhammad was a true prophet. Click here to go straight to that Epistle, in the same version he used, and decide for yourself.
THE QURAN ON SCRIPTURE
What does the Quran say about the bible? The following suras are from the popular Yusuf Ali English translation.
Sura 57.27 Then, in their wake, We followed them up with (others of) Our messengers: We sent after them Jesus the son of Mary, and bestowed on him the Gospel; and We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him Compassion and Mercy.
Muhammad was instructed by his "Allah" regarding where to get his advice if he had doubts:
Sura 10:94 If thou wert in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book from before thee: the Truth hath indeed come to thee from thy Lord: so be in no wise of those in doubt.
These Suras were written hundreds of years after the bible had been translated into every popular language, copied tens of thousands of times, and had been read all over the known world for centuries. We have over 5300 partial or complete manuscripts of the New Testament that were penned prior to 300 AD.
Sura 5:47 Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.
So Christian's are specifically instructed by Muhammad to judge - even Islam - according to what God has revealed to us in the Gospel.
Sura 5:68 Say: "O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord." It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Faith.
Mark 1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
And Muslims are given similar instruction in sura 4:136 O ye who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the scripture which He hath sent to His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those before (him). Any who denieth Allah, His angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Day of Judgment, hath gone far, far astray.
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Some Muslims claim that the bible was corrupted, but this would be going directly against the Quran, let alone an admission that Allah didn't know the bible would be corrupted before he prompted Muhammad to recite these verses.
Sura 48.29 ... This is their similitude in the Taurat; and their similitude in the Gospel is: like a seed which sends forth its blade, then makes it strong; it then becomes thick, and it stands on its own stem, (filling) the sowers with wonder and delight. As a result, it fills the Unbelievers with rage at them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do righteous deeds forgiveness, and a great Reward.
Perhaps the most widely quoted verse in the Gospel is:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
But the Quran says in surah 4:157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
In Jesus words from the gospel of Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Tragically, Muhammad's followers are filled with complete resolve as to what to DISbelieve. That Jesus wasn't sacrificed on the cross to save all those from sin who have faith in His shed blood. If the Scriptures were corrupted before the 7th century and Christians and Jews are condemned, then how could Muhammad's "Allah" have indicated the following - in the future tense - regarding Christians and Jews?
Sura 2.62 Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (also 5.69)
Those "those who follow" not followed, "shall have" not are having, "shall be" no fear, all in the present or future tense to Muhammad.
Sura 80.13 (It is) in Books held (greatly) in honour, 14 Exalted (in dignity), kept pure and holy,15 (Written) by the hands of scribes- 16 Honourable and Pious and Just.
That was written during Muhammad's early Mecca days, so the books he referred to are necessarily the Scriptures of the Jews and Christians as they existed for hundreds of years before Muhammad.
Indeed Muhammad was to confirm and guard those Scriptures according to sura 5:48 To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety:...
But given sura 4:157 above, he wouldn't seem to have accomplished that.
...so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute;
Do you trust God to show you the truth?
Allah instructs Muhammad's followers to believe in the scripture that came before Muhammad. How could a Muslim obey Allah's commandment to: "Believe in ... the scripture which He sent to those before (him)." if you haven't read those scriptures?
Sura 5:43 But why do they come to thee for decision, when they have (their own) law before them?- therein is the (plain) command of Allah; yet even after that, they would turn away. For they are not (really) People of Faith.
Surah 2:106 (Asad) Any message which, We annul or consign to oblivion We replace with a better or a similar one. Dost thou not know that God has the power to will anything?
Are we to believe that God was in such a state of confusion that He had to annul and replace inspired verses in the Quran?
In the following pages the Gospel is copied from the King James Version which is the most widely quoted and respected English version in Christianity. It is also the version from which Ahmed Deedat used to quote. Why not read a little and trust Allah to "show you the truth of the matters"?
Jeremiah 17:9 The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10 I the LORD search the heart, try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, [and] according to the fruit of his doings.
1Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
May God bless you and guide us ALL in ALL truth.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
