Where Is This Promise Paul Is Referring To?

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

Paul says that the Old Testament made a promise about the coming of the gospel in the future...

Romans 1:1-2

Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures.

John Darby says in his commentary...



To the Gentile it was the revelation of the truth, and of God, in grace; to the Jew it was indeed that, while also putting everything that regarded him in its right place. The connection of the Old Testament with the gospel is this: the gospel of God had been announced beforehand by His prophets in holy writings. Observe here, that in these holy scriptures the gospel of God was not come, nor was it then addressed to men: but promised or announced beforehand, as to be sent. The assembly was not even announced: the gospel was announced, but as being yet to come

So basically the promise of this Gospel was to come and this promise is supposedly found in the Old Testament. However, when one reads the Old Testament he does not find even the word 'gospel' to be there. So if the word 'gospel' is no where to be found in the Old Testament then how can the Old Testament promise the Gospel of Jesus to come later on in the future. Is it possible that it did and that we do not have it in our possession today? Or did Paul make a false statement?

Christians should not come up and start bringing out the so called prophecies of the Old Testament that refer to Jesus. Because that is not what Paul says. Paul did not say that the Holy Scriptures contain a promise of Jesus to come, but his GOSPEL. So where is that promise?

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.    My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
