Gospel of Jesus
It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong).
Christians have problems with this claim of the Quran that the Gospel was sent by God completely and directly rather than being written by man.
Christians claim that men who were inspired by God wrote the Gospel and this was written after the departure of Jesus. Christians also reject the idea of the Gospel of Jesus.
Quran says that God revealed a book on Jesus, so this is the truth and Jesus in the Christian Bible has also mentioned it.
In Mark Jesus said: "...but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it."
How could Jesus have said this when there was no gospel when he lived? The gospel did not appear until after his departure from earth.
It is very clear that there was some Gospel that was with Jesus, the one that Jesus followed and called it worth giving your life for. This is a big ask; giving you life for a book.
It is important to note here that Jesus is not talking about the future but is speaking of a Gospel already available. The tenses used are present and the person whom he is talking to does not wonder as to what he is talking about.
This verse of Jesus clearly proves that the current Gospels written by men are nothing more than storybooks. One more thing to note here is that Paul never met Jesus, he came much later and therefore, all his books and teachings are useless as the original Gospel was already there which Jesus followed. As for Paul, we can conclude from this verse that whatever he has to say should be thrown away in garbage, even if he speaks the truth as some places, it should be thrown away as it has no relation to the Gospel of Jesus.
Some Christians claim that the Qur’an tells the Muslims to read the Gospel and Torah and they also quote verses from the Qur’an to support their claim.
The Quran does not give any such order to the Muslims. It says that the Gospel was from God, which no longer is from God as supported by the above statement of Jesus, which no Christian can reject.
Another point that is raised by this verse is that to call the Gospel corrupt is incorrect as it is completely altered. A corrupt book has the original part in it as well.
If we read the Quran we see that the pronouns used indicate that the words are only and only of God, for example, God says, “I favored Israel above all nations…” indicates that God is speaking whereas the Christian Bibles would say such a statement as, “God favored Israel…” clearly indicating that a human being is writing rather than God. Since Christians themselves say that their books are written by men, this argument is not completely worth discussing.
A proper gospel of Jesus should not have the words of any of the disciples, nor of Jesus but of God only. But for argument, we suppose that Jesus wrote the Gospel of Jesus, then the present gospel is still completely not the real Gospel as it should not contain the statements of any of the disciples, neither of Paul.
"...but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it."
Christians should reject all present Gospels and follow the Quran, which God sent for all of mankind. Please do not take this as an attack but rather be thankful to God for sending us the Qur’an which corrects the Old books and brings mankind back to the true religion of God.
