Jesus, Allah or Prophet?

In recent times muslims have continually argued that Jesus is a prophet not God, however i think its time we actually show the truth of the matter, and show that Christ is Truly is God and  not some prophet.

Before i begin however i intend no offense to our Muslim brothers, rather i offer a branch of dialogue and opinion on this important Issue!

In Christianity, Jesus is the word of God and the Son of God

Proof:

  • John 1:1 “In the beginning was the word of God”
  • I John 5:7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.
  • Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

So we clearly see that the “WORD” is the “SON”.

Now if Jesus is the Son of God he must also be the Word of God!

So lets look at an example, when i talk, the spoken “WORD” belongs to me, no one else i own the word we are inseparable.

Another example may be the following, if im in theatre and ask for a scalpel, that utterance of speech – is my word, which belongs to me and no one else.

So what does the Quran say, since muslims believe that Jesus isn’t God, but rather a prophet.

If we take a look at Surat al Nesa (women) chapter 171 we find this verse

“O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and say not “Three” – Cease! (it is) better for you! – Allah is only One God. Far is it removed from His Transcendent Majesty that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allah is sufficient as Defender.”

Ok this verse needs to be read several times to be comprehended.

Jesus was a messenger of Allah.

But at the same time he was his WORD….”and his word”

Now we agreed above that word and the person that speaks that word are a unity.

This leaves only one conclusion that Jesus is the Word of God, meaning that Jesus is of Allah and he must be Allah.

Thus unlike what is proclaimed by muslims that Jesus is only a prophet we clearly see that even their own Quran states that he was God.

There are many other examples that can be said from the quran that prove that Jesus is God, but i think this is as simple as it possibly can get.

  1. Allah was a Chief idol in pagan Arabia along with many other pagan idols. Muhammad, in order to get control of the people, banned all others Idols and gods except Allah. He then set Allah up to be the supreme god. This brought the people together and under Muhammad’s control.
    The idol, Allah, had the body of a bull and the head of a man. It was an inanimate object that never had life. How could anyone come up with the idea that the living Jesus is Allah. Allah was an invention of Muhammed. When you hear a Muslim say “Allah will protect me”, just know the only way Allah can protect them is using it to get under in order to get out of the rain. That’s about all the protection anyone could expect to get from a rock.

  2. To be honest Jerry my research has revealed that Allah was actually Ellaht the moon God of arabia.

    This is why there is a crescent on top of the Mosques.

    Cheers
