Psalm 91 clearly confirms that Jesus never got crucified!
 

Psalm 116, 117 and 118 indisputably prove that Jesus Christ never got crucified.

 

Was Jesus Christ Crucified?


(Click here to play 3-hour debate)

At hour 1:00:00 - 1:07:55, Dr. Zakir Naik really sealed
this debate and destroyed Christianity!

This is yet another wonderful 3-hour debate and video by
Dr. Zakir Naik where he thoroughly demonstrated from
the Bible's New Testament
that Jesus Christ was never
crucified, nor did he ever rise from the dead.  This 3-hour
debate was between Dr. Zakir Naik and Pastor Rukni.

Here is my shortened version videoDr. Naik provided many more verses than the following ones.  But the following verses and points were from my shortened version video.  See also this text-debate between me and a Christian on my blog.  You're welcomed to join in.

According to the NT's accounts themselves (Luke 24:1-8, Mark 15:40-47, Mark 16:1-8, John 19:38-42, John 20:1-29), Jesus Christ was NEVER buried underground.  He was placed in a rich man's tomb (a cave like a bear's or mountain lion's cave) for three days above the ground, laying on the floor there. 
  

  
He received medicine and massaging from Mary Magdalene and others during this time.  He then "rose up from the dead" and left the tomb (cave).

1- Notice in Luke 24:1, the women came to the tomb with medicine and found Jesus gone.  If he was already dead, they would have no reason to bring this to dead Jesus.  But Jesus was alive and was receiving medical treatment.

2- Also, notice in John 20:15, Mary Magdalene thought Jesus was a gardener, after he healed and rose back up.

3- And in John 20:17, Jesus was still in pain, he told Mary Magdalene "touch me not!".

4- And in John 20:19-29, Jesus showed his original body to the disciples, and they checked it.

Jesus Christ:

  • Never actually died. He has always been alive in the tomb receiving medical treatment.
     
  • He was never buried underground, or in a coffin. He was laid on the floor, alive.
      
  • Dr. Zakir Naik provided many more verses during his 3-hour debate.  Again, the above points were taken from my shortened version video.  And again, see also this text-debate between me and a Christian on my blog.  You're welcomed to join in.

  • I also added a new video "Rose from the Dead" is an old Semitic idiom even before Christianity (7 minutes long).  I used video clips, proverbs and verses that thoroughly demonstrated how the term was commonly used for people who survived fatal injuries or accidents, or survived very dangerous situations and close calls.  Also, I proved that the Bible also uses this term metaphorically.  Did you know for example that in the following verse, Isaac was said to have risen from the dead:

    Hebrews 11:19
    19 Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.

    Yet, Isaac wasn't physically dead.  Similarly, we also find in all of the world's civilizations, terms such as "A cat has 9 lives" and others.  This also metaphorically refers to the person "coming back to life", or "rising from the dead" many times due to his luck.

    Another brief video that demonstrates from the Bible's Old and New Testaments that Jesus Christ never got crucified.

  •    Crucifixion refuted in 3 minutes!

    Brother "YahyaSnow" makes this short youtube video of where he
    posted a short clip from my debate with Nabeel Qureshi, below,
    and his (brother YahyaSnow) commentary.  This brief video gives
    good short refutation to the crucifixion hoax.  The video can also
    be
    downloaded here.

      
      

    Lies upon Lies!

    Isaiah 53:8, below, its Hebrew says that Jesus will be thrown in jail.  The ample liars of the English translations currently translate it as "he will be cut off from the land of the living (i.e., he will die)"  See the proofs below about this and the rest of Isaiah 53's mistranslations and you be the judge!  

      

    My Latest Debate on the alleged Crucifixion of Jesus:

    Did Jesus die on the Cross as an Atonement?

    Also, my other debate with Nabeel.

    What parts of the Bible and Hadiths do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth, and Why? [1] [2]

    Note to Muslims:

    As Muslims, we must be very careful when we comment on the previous Scriptures, because there is always a possibility that there might be Divine Revelations parts in the verses that we might be objecting to.  I know that the many of the disbelievers constantly insult and mock Islam all the time, and even lie on their own Scriptures with their "End of Times Prophecies" lies, -where they hijacked even the Bible with their bigotry, hate and lies, - but still dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we must always be very careful when we deal with previous Scriptures, because as Muslims we do believe that they do contain remnants of Divine Revelations in them.  May Allah Almighty forgive me, and forgive all sincere Muslims, for any and all mistakes and errors that we may have fell into.  Ameen.

    Zionist Israel will rule the earth with Mighty Evil!  (Islamic Prophecy)

    The Glorious Quran declared 1,400 years ago that the Israeli Zionist machine will rule the entire earth with mighty evil and power.  They will reach "Mighty Heights" علوا كبيرا  of evil power and might on earth.  See Noble Verses 17:4-8:

    Also, Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, made a stunning prophecy about the one-eyed anti-Christ who will rule the infidels and the world:
     
    Narrated Ibn Umar: "Once Allah's Apostle stood amongst the people, glorified and praised Allah as He deserved and then mentioned the Dajjal (anti-Christ)
    saying, "l warn you against him (i.e. the Dajjal) and there was no prophet but warned his nation against him. No doubt, Noah warned his nation against him but I tell you about him something of which no prophet told his nation before me. You should know that he is one-eyed, and Allah is not one-eyed."  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 553)"
      

    9/11 was 100% an Israeli Mossad Operation!

    Many references of this Hadith (Saying) exist throughout our Islamic Texts.  This is one of the most popular Hadiths and Prophecies of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.  And indeed, we are seeing it come to pass before our very eyes.

    The Gospel Christ:

    So, what was the Gospel of Jesus Christ then, i.e., the Injil of Jesus Christ?  Even among Christians, this remains a mystery.  But the Didache; a Gospel which existed even before the current Bible-Gospels (or canonized Gospels), contains a great deal of teachings of Jesus Christ.  The following points are important to always keep in mind: (1)- No single Scripture, the Didache or any other Scripture, is 100% pure and accurate.  There are always forgeries and alterations.  This is the same with every single book and gospel. (2)- The Original Teachings of Christ exist in Scriptures that are in the Bible and outside the Bible.

    The "Son of God" Title in the 1 John 2:22

    Jesus is Yahweh the Son?  See how Christians got this very wrong in the NT, using Jesus' words himself!

    Father and Son Definitions:

    Definition of Key Terms (a discussion between me and a Christian):

    1-  What does "The Father" really mean in the Bible?  How is it defined in Islam? (see point #5 below)  How does the Bible really define it?

    2-  What does "Son of GOD" really mean in the Bible? 

    3-  Jesus had to at least match Melchizedek in Miracles and  Power.  See this text-debate between me and a Christian brother.

    4-  Does the Bible say that Yahweh created Jesus Yes it does.

      
      
    "Father" and "Son" in Islam and the Bible:

    5-  Is Islam the anti-Christ system according to 1john 2:22 No it isn't.  Here are some Bible facts regarding "FATHER" and "SON":

    (a)-  Allah Almighty is the Believers' only Guardian (المولى):

  • See Noble Verses 8:40, 22:13, 22:78.  In Arabic we say ولي الأمر , which means "The Legal Guardian".  المولى is derived from the root word ولي  .ولي also means a chosen friend to Allah Almighty, as in the following point.   

  • (b)-  FRIENDS = SONS in the Bible and Quran (ولي , وليهما and خليلا):

    We further read the following in the Bible:

    Isaiah 41:8
    "But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend,

    Chronicles 20:7
    Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend?

    James 2:23
    And the scripture was fulfilled that says, "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness," and he was called God's friend.

    So being GOD Almighty's "SON" in the Bible is equal to being GOD Almighty's "FRIEND".  Now compare this to the following from the Holy Quran:

    [002:257] Allah is the friend (ولي) and patron of those who believe. He brings them out of the depths of darkness into light. While those who do not believe, have the forces of evil as their friends; they lead them out of light, into the very depths of darkness. Such ones shall be the inmates of the fire. They will stay there forever.

    [003:122] (And remember) when the two groups among you lost heart (and almost fell out), even though Allah was their Friend and Protector (وليهما)? In Allah (alone), should the believers place their trust!

    [004:125] Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to God, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith? For God did take Abraham for a friend (خليلا).

    So the Bible's "FATHER" & "SON" for GOD Almighty and the Believers is clearly metaphoric, and it only means that GOD Almighty:

    1-  Is the Protector.
    2-  Is the Friend.
    3-  Is the Guardian.

    (c)-  BEGET = CHOSE:

    Regarding the following verse, and many others like it:

    King James Bible Psalm 2:7
    I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

    Let us look at Noble Verses 27:59, 3:33, 3:42, 7:144, 22:75, 35:32, 38:47, 39:4 from the Glorious Quran:

    [027:059] Say: Praise be to God, and Peace on his servants whom He has chosen اصطفى (for his Message). (Who) is better?- God or the false gods they associate (with Him)?

    ‏27:59 قل الحمد لله وسلام على عباده الذين اصطفى ءالله خير اما يشركون

    [003:033] God did choose اصطفى Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of 'Imran above all people,-

    ‏3:33 ان الله اصطفى ادم ونوحا وال ابراهيم وال عمران على العالمين

    [003:042] Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! God hath chosen thee اصطفاك and purified thee- chosen thee above the women of all nations.

    ‏3:42 واذ قالت الملائكة يامريم ان الله اصطفاك وطهرك واصطفاك على نساء العالمين

    [007:144] (God) said: "O Moses! I have chosen thee اصطفيتك above (other) men, by the mission I (have given thee) and the words I (have spoken to thee): take then the (revelation) which I give thee, and be of those who give thanks."

    ‏7:144 قال ياموسى اني اصطفيتك على الناس برسالاتي وبكلامي فخذ ما اتيتك وكن من الشاكرين

    [022:075] God chooses يصطفي messengers from angels and from men for God is He Who hears and sees (all things).

    ‏22:75 الله يصطفي من الملائكة رسلا ومن الناس ان الله سميع بصير

    [035:032] Then We have given the Book for inheritance to such of Our Servants as We have chosen اصطفينا: but there are among them some who wrong their own souls; some who follow a middle course; and some who are, by God's leave, foremost in good deeds; that is the highest Grace.

    ‏35:32 ثم اورثنا الكتاب الذين اصطفينا من عبادنا فمنهم ظالم لنفسه ومنهم مقتصد ومنهم سابق بالخيرات باذن الله ذلك هو الفضل الكبير

    [038:047] They were, in Our sight, truly, of the company of the Elect المصطفين and the Good.

    ‏38:47 وانهم عندنا لمن المصطفين الاخيار

    [039:004] Had God wished to take to Himself an (actual) son, He could have chosen لاصطفى whom He pleased out of those whom He doth create: but Glory be to Him! (He is above such things.) He is God, the One, the Irresistible.

    ‏39:4 لو اراد الله ان يتخذ ولدا لاصطفى مما يخلق مايشاء سبحانه هو الله الواحد القهار

    Furthermore, when Jesus was asked about when the Hour will come, he replied by saying that only GOD Almighty Knows, and that no one knows, and that Jesus himself also didn't know.  Please visit:

    http://www.answering-christianity.com/questions.htm
    http://www.answering-christianity.com/ac7.htm#links

    Jesus spelled it out clearly that he knew NOT.  And as to calling GOD Almighty "Father", and that Islam denies that GOD Almighty is an ACTUAL FATHER to anyone, in Islam GOD Almighty is called:

    1-  Rab - Lord, Father (you are the Rab of your home for being the husband and the father).

    2-  Wali - Guardian.

    In the old Aramaic and Hebrew, GOD Almighty was called what-is-equivalent-to-Islam our Rab and Wali.  But that doesn't make GOD Almighty our actual Father.  This is exactly as Judaism metaphors such as idolatry is equivalent to spiritual adultery.  No Jew is actually married to GOD Almighty to actually commit a personal marriage-adultery against GOD Almighty!  Yet, the Jews use metaphors like these.  Islam came to straighten all of this out and to set the record straight that GOD Almighty has no son and no daughter.  Otherwise, why would GOD Almighty torture us to Hell if we were His perfect sons and daughters??  No imperfect being could be an actual son of GOD Almighty (and no being is the son or daughter of GOD Almighty, period!):

    [005:018] (Both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We are sons of God, and his beloved." Say: "Why then doth He punish you for your sins? Nay, ye are but men,- of the men he hath created: He forgiveth whom He pleaseth, and He punisheth whom He pleaseth: and to God belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between: and unto Him is the final goal (of all)"

    Again, please visit: http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,1368.msg5203.html#msg5203.
      

    6-  Did you know that Elohim is Allah [1] [2].  The "im" in Hebrew is a majestic plural for GOD Almighty.  The root Word is "Eloh".  And the more original Jews such as Yemenites and others say Alohim or Alah-im.  And when you yourself pronounce it, you do naturally pronounce it with a double "l": Allah.  Jews do call Him: Allah-im.  Aramaic-speaking people also call GOD Almighty Allah.  See the following videos for Biblical references and proofs.  Also, pre-Islamic Biblical archeological findings have GOD Almighty as "Allah".  So the Original Holy Name for GOD Almighty is not Eloh.  It is Allah!  Eloh is a Hebrew dialect, which not all Hebrew speakers use anyway.  Allah had always been the Original and Universal GOD Almighty even before birth of Judaism, and the existence Hebrew.  And Hebrew is a developed language from Phoenician.  See the following links:

    The Crucifixion and Resurrection were never prophesied in the Bible's Old Testament:

    The sections of this article are:

    1-  Ample Prophesies in the Old Testament about the Messiah getting saved from crucifixion.
         

          (a)-  Psalm 91 is not just limited to the foot striking the rock!
          (b)-  The Crucifixion is Symbolic in the New Testament.
          (c)- 
    Indisputable errors and contradictions in the Crucifixion and Resurrection Accounts!

          (b)-  Isaiah 53:12.

    3-  The crucifixion would've broken at least one bone and refuted John 19:30-40!
    4-  Islam denies the crucifixion and much of the Bible agrees.

          -  Jesus was never "disfigured" to a point "beyond human likeness"!

    5-  GOD Almighty Changed His Mind a lot throughout the Bible.

    8-  Rebuttals.

         (a)-  Detailed rebuttal on Isaiah 53.
         (b)-  Rebuttal from the New Testament.

      

      

      

    1-  Ample Prophesies in the Old Testament about the Messiah getting saved from crucifixion:

    You would expect that major events such as the crucifixion and the resurrection of Christ, that make up the entire case for Christianity, to be at least prophesied in the Bible's Old Testament clearly, without any ambiguity, and without any deliberate mistranslations and lies.  But the Truth and the sad reality for the believers in the crucifixion, who are too also desperate to prove trinity even though the word itself, "trinity", doesn't even exist in the entire Bible, is that these major events, the crucifixion and the resurrection, were never mentioned in the entire Old Testament.

    The following Biblical verses that further refute the crucifixion and resurrection lies:

    Being lifted and saved:

    Luke 4:10-12
    10 For the Scriptures say, ‘He will order his angels to protect and guard you.
    11 And they will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
    ’”
    12 Jesus responded, “The Scriptures
    also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’”

    Matthew 4:5-10
    5 Then the devil took him to the holy city, Jerusalem, to the highest point of the Temple,
    6 and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say, ‘He will order his angels to protect you. And they will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.’”
    7 Jesus responded, “The Scriptures
    also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’”
    8 Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.
    9 “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.”
    10 “Get out of here, Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’”

    Please visit: Psalm 91 clearly confirms that Jesus never got crucified.

    There are few points to notice in these verses:

    1-  Notice how satan referred to Psalm 91 regarding the protection of Jesus.

    2-  Notice how Jesus confirmed that Psalm 91 was indeed speaking about him by saying "the Scriptures also say..." (Luke 4:12 and Matthew 4:7).

    3-  As we will see in the sections below, Psalm 91 is not just concerned with preventing Christ or the Messiah from striking his feet against the ground.  This is the least point the chapter is concerned with.  The chapter concentrated heavily on:

    (see the following sub-section's points)

      

    (a)-  Psalm 91 is not just limited to the foot striking the rock!

    The following table contains all of Psalm 91 and detailed analysis about its key verses.  Notice how the New Testament in Luke 4:10-11 and Matthew 4:5-6 and in many other places completely misquoted and misunderstood Psalm 91.  Psalm 91 and its verses are not just concerned about Jesus' striking of his feet against a rock (Psalm 91:12).  That is a lie and a clear fabrication! [1] [2]  This piece is very minor in the chapter, because the chapter is more focused on:

  • GOD Almighty will hear his cries (Psalm 91:15) and will save him (Psalm 91:3).
     
  • GOD Almighty will cover him with His Protection (Psalm 91:4).
     
  • Christ will then not have any fear in him (Psalm 91:5).
     
  • Christ will then observe with his own eyes the punishment of the crucified ones (Psalm 91:8).
     
  • No harm (this includes crucifixion!) or disaster will even come near Christ (Psalm 91:10....this even contradicts him getting beaten up before crucifixion).
     
  • GOD Almighty will send down the Angels to protect him and lift him (Psalm 91:11-12, 14, Isaiah 52:13).  Not even his foot will strike the ground from his enemies pushing, grappling and punishment.
     
  • Christ's call will be HEARD, and he will be delivered and honored (Psalm 91:15, Isaiah 52:13).  No way would these verses be valid if Christ got crucified.
     
  • His life will be prolonged (extended) and he will live to even see his offspring (Isaiah 53:10 and Psalm 91:16, which by the way contradict Jesus never got married and had children.  In Islam's Noble Quran's 13:38, however, it is quite possible that Jesus Christ had wives and children).
     
  • His life will overpower death (Isaiah 53:12).
     
  • "Death" in Isaiah 53:9 is proven to be symbolic using the Hebrew Lexicon and several English translations, and it never meant a literal death.
     
  • Important Note:  Psalm 91 is speaking as a number of Prophecies that WILL take place.  Notice how the verses are speak of future events that WILL TAKE PLACE.  Never once throughout the entire New Testament were the Angels sent to save Jesus from striking his foot against a rock.  This, again, clearly proves that the NT is indeed false and corrupt.
     
  • Here is Psalm 91 that Luke 4:10-11 and Matthew 4:5-6 link to Jesus:

    (Pay attention to the red text below, especially in Psalm 91:11-12, 15 and the others)

    Psalm 91

    1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a]
    2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
    3
    Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
    4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
    5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
    6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
    7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
    8
    You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. 

    (According to the Noble Quran and the original writings of the Disciples of Jesus, Jesus was not crucified, and he watched the crucifixion of the doomed person.

    Also, according to the Apocalypse of Peter that was discovered in Egypt, Jesus sat on the tree and watched the crucified one getting crucified.  Peter witnessed this and wrote the Apocalypse.  Not only that, but while Christians insist that the book is a Gnostic one, but according to Wikipedia.org, "It is unclear whether this text advocates an adoptionist (Jesus was Divine) or docetist (Jesus' body and crucifixion were an illusion) christology". 

    So there is no proof that the book is Gnostic.)

    9 If you make the Most High your dwelling— even the LORD, who is my refuge-

    10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.

    11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
    12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

    (If Jesus died on the cross and got buried, then his feet would've struck the ground and the stones on it from bringing him down, throwing him on the floor and burying him).

    13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

    14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

    15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

    16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."

    Footnotes:

    1. Psalm 91:1 Hebrew Shaddai
    2. Psalm 91:2 Or He says

     

    There is no question!

    There is no question that the emphasized parts above, especially in Psalm 91:11-12, 15 and others, clearly and indisputably agree with the Noble Quran and Isaiah 52:13!  Jesus was neither crucified nor resurrected, and he was protected and lifted by GOD Almighty.  Also, the New Testament, again, confirms that Psalm 91 is referring to Jesus Christ.

  • GOD Almighty will hear his cries (Psalm 91:15) and will save him (Psalm 91:3).
     
  • GOD Almighty will cover him with His Protection (Psalm 91:4).
     
  • Christ will then not have any fear in him (Psalm 91:5).
     
  • Christ will then observe with his own eyes the punishment of the crucified ones (Psalm 91:8).
     
  • No harm (this includes crucifixion!) or disaster will even come near Christ (Psalm 91:10....this even contradicts him getting beaten up before crucifixion).
     
  • GOD Almighty will send down the Angels to protect him and lift him (Psalm 91:11-12, 14, Isaiah 52:13).  Not even his foot will strike the ground from his enemies pushing, grappling and punishment.
     
  • Christ's call will be HEARD, and he will be delivered and honored (Psalm 91:15, Isaiah 52:13).  No way would these verses be valid if Christ got crucified.
     
  • His life will be prolonged (extended) and he will live to even see his offspring (Isaiah 53:10 and Psalm 91:16, which by the way contradict Jesus never got married and had children.  In Islam's Noble Quran's 13:38, however, it is quite possible that Jesus Christ had wives and children).
     
  • His life will overpower death (Isaiah 53:12).
     
  • "Death" in Isaiah 53:9 is proven to be symbolic using the Hebrew Lexicon and several English translations, and it never meant a literal death.
     
  • Important Note:  Psalm 91 is speaking as a number of Prophecies that WILL take place.  Notice how the verses are speak of future events that WILL TAKE PLACE.  Never once throughout the entire New Testament were the Angels sent to save Jesus from striking his foot against a rock.  This, again, clearly proves that the NT is indeed false and corrupt.

    Lifting up those who bow down:

    Psalm 145:14
    The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.

    Psalm 146:8
    the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous.

    Isaiah 52:13
    13 See, my servant will act wisely ; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

    GOD Almighty Saving His annointed King and saving those who take refuge in Him:

    Psalm 20:6
    6  Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed king. He answers him from his holy heaven. The power of God's right hand saves the king.

    Psalm 17:7
    Show the wonder of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.

    Psalm 18:3
    I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.

    Psalm 9:13
    O LORD, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death,

    Psalm 30:1
    [ A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. Of David. ] I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.

    Note:  The Psalms of David, while they are narrated by him, but they do contain many prophecies about the coming of Jesus Christ or the Messiah.  The New Testament had made many references to many of the Psalms verses and linked them to Jesus Christ.

    It is also interesting to know that King David was never killed by his enemies.  Therefore, the speech in Psalm 9:13 and Psalm 30:1 refer to a live man and not a man who died.  Notice how David said:

    1-  "I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me."

    2-  "Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death".

    The two quotes indicate that David cried out to GOD Almighty for help, and GOD Almighty lifted him from the enemies' defeat and death.  In other words, David was victorious and was never killed or put to death by them.  Remember that King David was never killed by his enemies.  He was lifted up by GOD Almighty and was made victorious over them.

    Therefore, it is also safe to say that GOD Almighty's Commands about "saving" and " sending down the Angels to lift up" Christ from his enemies, in Psalm 91 and the rest of the Psalm verses above, also undoubtebly prove that Jesus Christ indeed never got crucified and was indeed saved from crucifixion and death.

    Psalm 91 clearly states that Jesus Christ will never get crucified.

    Psalm 116, 117 and 118 indesputably prove that Jesus Christ never got crucified.

    2-  Isaiah 53 and its mistranslations:

    Please visit the Rebuttals section below for great analysis on Isaiah 53.  Before we look at the Isaiah 53 chapter, I'd like for you to keep the following important points about the chapter in mind:

     

    (a)-  Isaiah 53's symbolic speeches:

    (Most of the following points were taken from brother Musa's rebuttal; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him)

    1-  Isaiah 53:3 says that "Jesus" is despised by all men.  In Luke 10:1, Jesus has at least 70 followers, and in other verses we're told that he fed and healed thousands (John 6:9-11, Luke 17:11-19 and other verses).

    2-  In Isaiah 53:5 it says he was wounded for our transgressions.  Now right away one might assume this is the death of Jesus.  However it says he was WOUNDED not killed.  But let us go with killed for your arguments sake.  This is not what this verse is saying.  It is saying that they made a mistake so he is paying for it.  They plotted or accused against him.  This is exactly what happened.  And again, the verse says wounded, which further proves that Christ was never killed.

    3-  Isaiah 53:7 states that "he did not open his mouth".  There are two possible interpretations and answers to this:

    1. Jesus never literally spoke a single word during the crucifixion trial.  This is obviously wrong because Jesus spoke during his trial with both Pontius Pilot and the Jews.  And we all know Jesus' famous and final cry to GOD Almighty when he said:  "Eloi Eloi lama sabachtani!", which translates: "My GOD my GOD, why have you forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46)  So wrong.  He did open his mouth.
       
    2. Jesus did not object to GOD Almighty's Will.  This is also wrong, because again, Jesus cried during the crucifixion "My GOD my GOD why have you forsaken me?", and he also prayed ENDLESSLY to GOD Almighty on the night of the crucifixion to not get crucified!  (Matthew 16:39, Matthew 26:36-44, Luke 6:12) He even bowed down his face to Allah Almighty in worship endless times begging Him for a change in Decision.  So yes, Jesus did object.

    4-  Isaiah 53:8's English translation falsely states "he will be cut off from the land of the living".  See below in my rebutttals section where I've proven from the NIV Bible's commentary itself that the Hebrew word says "He will be thrown in jail."

     

    5-  Isaiah 53:9 says that he made his grave with the wicked and the rich.  According to http://scripturetext.com/isaiah/53-9.htm:

    "in his death" is a translation to the Hebrew Mawth.  This word is symbolic as further confirmed in the Hebrew lexicon:
  • "in his death
    maveth  (maw'-veth)
    death (natural or violent); concretely, the dead, their place or state (hades); figuratively, pestilence, ruin -- (be) dead(-ly), death, die(-d)."

    (http://scripturetext.com/isaiah/53-9.htm)

    So in his death here is symbolically referring to his execution trial and not necessarily his physical and literal death.  This is further proven in Young's Literal Translation of the verse:

    He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death [Here is how the literal translation says: "And it appointeth with the wicked his grave, And with the rich [are] his high places"....This is verified at this link: (Young's Literal Translation)], though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.
      
     

  • Other translations read:

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah 53:9;&version=51;

    Isaiah 53:9 (New Living Translation)
    9 He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone. But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man’s grave.
     
    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah 53:9;&version=46;

    Isaiah 53:9 (Contemporary English Version)
    9 He wasn't dishonest or violent, but he was buried in a tomb of cruel and rich people.

  •  
    There are also two errors in the fulfillment of this Prophecy:

    1. Jesus was never buried (Matthew 27:59-66, Matthew 28)!  He was temporarily placed in a tomb and then his body disappeared after that.  But he never ONCE was buried under ground as our dead get buried.
       
    2. Jesus, who was never buried from the first place, was also NEVER BURIED with the wicked and the rich.  His tomb was placed in an isolated area as recorded in the gospels.

    Again, verse 9 says that he was to be buried with both the wicked and the rich.  Jesus was buried alone.

    6-  In Isaiah 53:10-11, GOD Almighty will prolong Jesus' life and Jesus will live to even see his offspring (his children)!  And Christ will see the Light and be satisfied after the suffering of his soul.  The suffering of his soul here is referring to the overwhelming fear that Jesus had and the countless cries and Prayers that he made to Allah Almighty to save him.  Psalm 91 further speaks clearly on this.  Also, Jesus' life was never made long or extended.  He only lived for 33 years, so we're told in the gospels, and he certainly never married any woman nor had any child from any woman.  Yet, Isaiah 53:10 clearly says that he will live and he will have and see his children.

    7-  In Isaiah 53:12, we are told that Jesus' life or soul will be poured unto death.  To me, given the Islamic position about Christ never got crucified, and given the symbolic speech in Isaiah 53 chapter that most of it conflicts with what really took place with Christ in the gospels, and given the fact that many early writings in Palestine and elsewhere stated clearly that Jesus never got crucified such as in the Apocalypse of Peter and other ancient texts, then my interpretation of this verse about Jesus' life being poured unto death means to me that Jesus' life will overpower death!  This is indisputably proven in Psalm 91 where it states that not only Jesus will not get crucified, but GOD Almighty will also hear his cries and will send down the Angels to PROTECT HIM and SAVE HIM.  And Psalm 91 also says that Christ will call upon GOD Almighty and GOD Almighty will HEAR him and HONOR himChrist would not have been honored if he have died the humiliating death of the cross.  And certainly, he would not have been "saved" either by the Angels.
     

     

    Given all of this, let us now look at the Chapter of Isaiah 53 in the Bible:

    1
    Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
    2
    He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
    3
    He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
    4
    Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.
    5
    But he was pierced wounded (KJV) for our transgressions, he was crushed bruised (KJV) for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
    6
    We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
    7
    He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
    8
    By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living (This is a lie!  The Hebrew says he will be thrown in jail according to the NIV Bible's commentary.  Read the Rebuttals section below for ample details); for the transgression of my people he was stricken.
    9
    He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death [Here is how the literal translation says: "And it appointeth with the wicked his grave, And with the rich [are] his high places"....This is verified at this link: (Young's Literal Translation)], though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.
     

    Isaiah 53:9 says that he made his grave with the wicked and the rich.  According to http://scripturetext.com/isaiah/53-9.htm:

    "in his death" is a translation to the Hebrew Mawth.  The word is symbolic one as further confirmed in the Hebrew lexicon:
  • "in his death
    maveth  (maw'-veth)
    death (natural or violent); concretely, the dead, their place or state (hades); figuratively, pestilence, ruin -- (be) dead(-ly), death, die(-d)."

    (http://scripturetext.com/isaiah/53-9.htm)

    So in his death here is symbolically referring to his execution trial and not necessarily his physical and literal death.  This is further proven in Young's Literal Translation of the verse:

    He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death [Here is how the literal translation says: "And it appointeth with the wicked his grave, And with the rich [are] his high places"....This is verified at this link: (Young's Literal Translation)], though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.
     
      

  • Other translations read:

    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah 53:9;&version=51;

    Isaiah 53:9 (New Living Translation)
    9 He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone. But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man’s grave.
     
    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah 53:9;&version=46;

    Isaiah 53:9 (Contemporary English Version)
    9 He wasn't dishonest or violent, but he was buried in a tomb of cruel and rich people.

  • 10
    Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.
    According to Christianity, Jesus Christ was single and never married nor did he have children.  This verse clearly refutes Christianity, because the Servant here will live to see his biological children ("his offspring") along with his days being prolonged (made longer).  Christ died at the young age of 33 according to Christianity, which is also against this verse.  Christs' years are short in Christianity, while in Isaiah 53:10, the servant's years are very long and extended along with him living them with his biological children.
    11
    After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.
    12
    Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death [It doesn't at all mean that he will die.  The literal translation says: "Because that he exposed to death his soul"....This is verified again at this link: (Young's Literal Translation).......Both Islam and Isaiah 52:13 claim that Jesus never got crucified. See below.], and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

      

    (b)-  Isaiah 53:12:

    The mistranslated verse states:

    Isaiah 5:12 "....because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors....." 

    This verse doesn't clearly state that the predicted servant will actually die.  It could be easily read as he will defeat, overpower and/or escape death.  Also, when we study carefully the poetical literature of Isaiah 53, and study carefully the claims made above, we see that "him pouring his life unto death" means that the goodness that he will bring from GOD Almighty will be the light that will bring his people from darkness (death) into light (goodness).  He will defeat death (darkness).  Isaiah 5:12 does not state that he will die.  It clearly states that he will shadow or overwhelm death by his life.

    If I, for instance, pour my cup of cranberry juice on the white carpet, then I would create a big red spot on the carpet.  I wouldn't be changing the juice into carpet, or the carpet into juice.  No, I would simply defeat the whiteness of the carpet by the color of the juice.  That's what pouring the juice on the carpet means.

    Same thing applies with the servant pouring his life unto death.   GOD Almighty considers evil doing and not believing in Him as equal to death.  

    Important Note: In many Verses in the Bible, we see that GOD Almighty used in Hebrew, Sheol, the word for "hell" as the same Hebrew word for "death".  That is why the Christian Jehovah Witnesses don't believe in "Hell Fire" as punishment for the unbelievers.  They believe that "Hell" is actual "Death".   So to put it in other words, Isaiah 53:12 could also mean that the Servant (Jesus) will over shadow or cover "hell (death)" with "life (good)".  So whoever believes in that Servant from the People of Israel will be saved from hell or death.

    Have Isaiah 53:12 clearly said "and he will die for people's sins and resurrect after 3 days", then we would have nothing to argue about.  So Jesus pouring his life (good) unto death (bad), means that whomever believes in his message from the People of Israel will defeat bad (darkness) and will be saved, and will have Jesus' life (goodness).  This perfectly matches what Islam claims about our beloved Prophet Jesus peace be upon him.

    3-  The crucifixion would've broken at least one bone, refuting John 19:30-40!

    If we were to take the Bible literally, then we will see clear contradictions in the crucifixion story.  Let us look at what the Bible says about piercing Jesus:

    John 19:30-40:

    30
    When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
    31
    Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.
    32
    The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other.
    33
    But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.
    34
    Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.
    35
    The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe.
    36
    These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: "Not one of his bones will be broken,"

      

    The Verses that reference the Bones:

    "A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.  (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 34:19-20)"

    As these verses don't even seem to be talking about the Messiah or any crucifixion, but assuming that they did, notice how Psalm 34:20 says that GOD Almighty will protect "all his bones".  So, not even an inch from his bones will be damaged according to the Scriptures - again assuming that the verses are even talking about the Messiah!!  This is exactly what the Noble Quran and Isaiah 52:13 say!

    Also, notice how Psalm 34:19 says that the LORD delivers him from "ALL OF THE troubles, which clearly goes against the crucifixion lie.  But anyway despite the John 19:36 verse, I still proved, by Allah Almighty's Mercy, Grace and Will, that the Psalm verses actually further proved the Noble Quran's claims along with Isaiah 52:13, and Jesus' Disciples' and the Early Christians original writings that were found in Palestine and Egypt about Jesus never got crucified!  See below...
     

    Also, please visit: Chapter Psalm 91 clearly and indisputably confirms that Jesus never got crucified!

    Psalm 116, 117 and 118 indesputably prove that Jesus Christ never got crucified.

    Psalm 22 and 88 confirm Islam's claim about Jesus never got crucified.

    A serious forgery in Luke 24:44-48 about Jesus' "resurrection on the third day" claiming that it was foretold in the OT when it wasn't!

    Forgery of Matthew 23.
     

     

    37
    and, as another scripture says, "They will look on the one they have pierced."
    38
    Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jews. With Pilate's permission, he came and took the body away.
    39
    He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.
    40
    Taking Jesus' body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.

    First of all, notice the man-made third party narration in the book of John.  The NIV Bible's Historians and Theologians are not even sure who wrote the books of John, 1 John, 2 John and 3 John.  The original authors are mysterious. 

    In the above verses, the mysterious author or authors suggest that Jesus' bones were reserved because the soldiers did not break his knees, hence this fulfills the Scriptures' prophecy that GOD will protect his body that not even a single bone would break.

  • Also see detailed refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20 that supposedly suggest that GOD Almighty was going to get pierced on the cross.
      
  • Hebrews 5:7-8 clearly and irrefutably claim that Jesus was saved from the cross; confirming Islam's claims.
     
  • None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion. They "all fled" and "deserted" Jesus. This further confirms Islam's claims.
     
  • Chapter Psalm 91 clearly and indisputably confirms that Jesus never got crucified!
      
  • Psalm 116, 117 and 118 indesputably prove that Jesus Christ never got crucified.
      
  • Psalm 22 and 88 confirm Islam's claim about Jesus never got crucified.
     
  • A serious forgery in Luke 24:44-48 about Jesus' "resurrection on the third day" claiming that it was foretold in the OT when it wasn't!
     
  • Forgery of Matthew 23.
     
  • Contradictions in the resurrection story in the Bible.
  •   
    Let us look at the obvious contradiction in the above verses:

    Taken from the above verses:   "These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: 'Not one of his bones will be broken,' and, as another scripture says, 'They will look on the one they have pierced.'  (From the NIV Bible, John 19:36-37)"

    "A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.  (From the NIV Bible, Psalm 34:19-20)"

    Again, as these verses don't even seem to be talking about the Messiah or any crucifixion, but assuming that it did, notice how Psalm 34:20 says that GOD Almighty will protect "all his bones".  So, not even an inch from his bones will be damaged according to the Scriptures - again assuming that the verses are even talking about the Messiah!!

    As you might know, the crucifixion back then was done by nailing to the cross the hands and the ankles or the feet.  If GOD Almighty was going to protect Jesus' body that not even a single bone will be broken, then how would the crucifixion and the death of Jesus be possible then?!

    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?!

    And for the parts of the Bible that suggest that Jesus actually died (which clearly contradict the Verses that I presented above), please visit What parts of the Bible do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth?

     

    I clearly see the Noble Quran's Claim about Jesus being saved from crucifixion being confirmed in Psalm 34:20!

      

      

    Would Jesus have at least cracked a bone?

    When one's hand and feet are nailed to a cross and then he is left on the cross to die slowly and painfully, would his body's weight at least:

    1-  Not break a single bone from either one of his hands or one of his feet?

    2-  Would he not at least crack a bone?

    A crack is a break!  And since we have 28 bones in each foot [1], and 27 bones in each hand [2], and some of them are very tiny and slim, then I find it quite impossible that at least not a single tiny one of them would break if the entire body's weight was resting on them.  But anyway, regardless, Psalm 91 which Luke 4:10-11 and Matthew 4:5-6 link Jesus Christ to it, clearly declares that Christ won't get crucified.

These are: the Talus, which connects to the tibia at the ankle; the Calcaneus, which forms the heel; the Navicular, Cuboid, and three Cuneiforms (Medial, Intermediate, and Lateral), which form the middle of the foot; the five Metatarsals, which radiate out to the toes; and 14 Phalanges (2-3-3-3-3), which form the toes."

    4-  Islam denies the crucifixion and much of the Bible agrees:

    Both Muslims and Christians believe that the grave of Jesus today is empty.  It doesn't have his body in it, because both believe that he was raised to Heaven.  The difference between Muslims and Christians in this issue is that Muslims believe that Jesus never died on the cross but was raised to GOD Almighty.   Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross, was buried in the grave (obviously his foot would've struck at least one stone!), and was resurrected to GOD Almighty. 

    Both the crucifixion and resurrection, as we've seen above, are not supported nor were ever foretold in the Bible's Old Testament, especially for the resurrection!  I mean, Christians could doctor and twist verses and translations in the OT to support the crucifixion, but with absolute certainty, there is not a single verse in the entire OT that even talks about the resurrection.  Please visit:

  • A serious forgery in Luke 24:44-48 about Jesus' "resurrection on the third day" claiming that it was foretold in the OT when it wasn't!
     
  • Forgery of Matthew 23.  By Abdullah Smith.
     
  • The Resurrection hoax.  By Abdullah Smith.
     
  • Contradictions in the resurrection story in the Bible.
  • In Isaiah 53, all it says is that he will get pierced which again it never mentioned the cross nor did it ever mention any sort of resurrection, not just in this chapter, but also throughout the Old Testament.  If this servant is indeed Jesus peace be upon him, then him being pierced and never dying seems to perfectly support the Islamic teaching about Prophet Jesus peace be upon him NEVER died on the cross for anyone's sins.

    Let us look at the following Noble Verse from the Noble Quran (The Muslims Holy Scripture):

    "That they rejected Faith; That they uttered against Mary A grave false charge;  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.  Nay, Allah raised him up Unto Himself; and Allah Is Exalted in Power, Wise.  And there is none of the people of the book (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him  (Jesus) Before his death; And on the Day of Judgment He (Jesus) will be a witness Against them.   (The Noble Quran, 4:156-159)"  

    Now compare the Noble Verses to Isaiah 52:13 "...he will be raised and lifted up....".   Notice that Isaiah 52:13 did not say "....he will be RESURRECTED and lifted up...."  Not even once, did the Old Testament predict for the foretold Servant to be raised to GOD Almighty after death.  There absolutely no mention of any sort of resurrection in the Bible's Old Testament what so ever.

    Here are the English translations of Isaiah 52:13 that say exactly "raised and lifted up" or something very similar: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16].

    The verses from the Noble Quran and Isaiah 52 are perfectly supported and confirmed at:

    Psalm 91 clearly confirms that Jesus never got crucified.

    Psalm 116, 117 and 118 indesputably prove that Jesus Christ never got crucified.

    Also, please visit: Does the Noble Quran in Verse 19:33 confirm Jesus' crucifixion?

    Furthermore, there are early writings that were found in Palestine that say that there is another who was called Jesus BarAbaa (son of his father since his father wasn't known) got crucified in the place of our Jesus Christ, whom people also called "Jesus BarAbaa".

    Please visit: The disciples' original writings that were found in Palestine declare that Jesus never got crucified.

     

    Again, I clearly see the Noble Quran's Claim about Jesus being saved from crucifixion being confirmed in Psalm 34:20!

     

     

     

    Jesus was never "disfigured" to a point "beyond human likeness"!

    Let us look at the following verse:

    Isaiah 52:14 "Just as there were many who were appalled at him - his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and his form marred beyond human likeness-"

    It appears that this verse further proves Islam's claims about Jesus, peace be upon him, never got crucified on the cross, because according to today's corrupt New Testament, Jesus never got disfigured to a point where no one could recognize his face; not from crucifixion, nor from the beating that he supposedly received before the crucifixion.

    The different "Canons" of the Bible!

     

    Since the Bible was not documented until 150 to 300 years after Jesus peace be upon him, and during his ministry, nothing was ever documented on paper regarding his deity, we Muslims believe that a great deal of corruption had entered the Bible. The following reasons will clarify the Muslims' position:

    1- As I mentioned above, the Old Testament doesn't in predict the resurrection of Jesus, nor it ever considered him as GOD.  Please read The "God" title in Isaiah 9:6 was given to others before and after Jesus.

    2- The early Christians rejected Trinity and never believed in it.

    3- The disciples of Jesus (John, Mark, Luke, etc...) didn't write the Gospels that were named after them in the New Testament.  I quoted from the NIV Bible the Christian Theologians themselves regarding the history of the NT.

    4- We believe that few centuries after Jesus peace be upon him the Church tampered with the Bible and invented the Trinity belief.

    5- We only believe in Jesus' personal quotes as closest to the truth.

    6- Jesus himself in the New Testament taught what Islam teaches; the Oneness of GOD Almighty and doing Righteousness.

    7- Jesus according to Islam never got killed on the cross.  Allah Almighty saved him. As I mentioned in point #5, we only believe in Jesus' quotes as closest to the Truth in the New Testament.  Islam's claims regarding Allah Almighty saving Jesus seem to fit with Jesus peace be upon him asking Allah Almighty to save him from crucifiction (Matthew 26:39).

      

      

    5-  GOD Almighty Changed His Mind a lot throughout the Bible:

    Even though we do not have a single proof about the Old Testament prophesying about the Messiah's crucifixion, but in this section, we will go ahead and accept this man-made fabrication.  We are still left with ample verses, in the Bible, about GOD Almighty Changing His Mind a lot that clearly support that GOD Almighty Had all the reasons to save Jesus from the pain and humiliation of the crucifixion:

     

    GOD Almighty Changing His Emotions:

    Ample verses from the book of Isaiah.

     

    GOD Almighty Changing His Mind:

    Hosea 11:8
    How can I give you up, Ephraim? How can I hand you over, Israel? How can I treat you like Admah? How can I make you like Zeboiim? My heart is changed within me; all my compassion is aroused.

    Amos 7:3
    So the LORD relented. "This will not happen," the LORD said.

    Jeremiah 18:8
    and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned.

    Exodus 32:14
    Then the LORD relented and did not bring on his people the disaster he had threatened.

    Jonah 3:9-10
    Who can tell, God may turn and revoke His sentence against us, and turn away from His fierce anger so that we perish not. And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God revoked His evil that He had said that He would do to them and He did not do it.
     

    Joel 2:13-14
    Rend your hearts and not your garments and return to the Lord, your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness; and He revokes His sentence of evil.  Who knows but what He will turn, revoke your sentence, and leave a blessing behind Him, even a cereal or meal offering and a drink offering for the Lord, your God?

    1 Chronicles 21:15
    And God sent an angel to destroy Jerusalem. But as the angel was doing so, the LORD saw it and was grieved because of the calamity and said to the angel who was destroying the people, "Enough! Withdraw your hand." The angel of the LORD was then standing at the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.

    Exodus 32:14
    and Jehovah repenteth of the evil which He hath spoken of doing to His people.

    Genesis 6:6
    and Jehovah repenteth that He hath made man in the earth, and He grieveth Himself -- unto His heart.

    Judges 2:18
    And when Jehovah raised up to them judges -- then was Jehovah with the judge, and saved them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for it repenteth Jehovah, because of their groaning from the presence of their oppressors, and of those thrusting them away.

    2 Samuel 24:16
    and the messenger putteth forth his hand to Jerusalem to destroy it, and Jehovah repenteth concerning the evil, and saith to the messenger who is destroying among the people, `Enough, now, cease thy hand;' and the messenger of Jehovah was near the threshing-floor of Araunah the Jebusite.

    Jeremiah 26:19
    Put him at all to death did Hezekiah king of Judah, and all Judah? Did he not fear Jehovah? yea, he appeaseth the face of Jehovah, and Jehovah repenteth concerning the evil that He spake against them; and we are doing great evil against our souls.

    My Challenge to Christians:

    Since the early Christians' and the Disciples' original writings all claim that Jesus never got crucified, then why couldn't Jehovah Almighty have said something similar to this:

    "...And Jehovah repented from the evil of crucifying the Messiah...."

    Why couldn't this be possible when GOD Almighty saw that the Jews were total losers and that no Prophet was ever fruitful with them?  They were even notorious in slaying Prophets:

    "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!  (From the KJV Bible, Matthew 23:37)"

    "We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of apostles; We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit. Is it that whenever there comes to you an apostle with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!  (The Noble Quran, 2:87)"

    "And remember ye said: "O Moses! we cannot endure one kind of food (always); so beseech thy Lord for us to produce for us of what the earth groweth, -its pot-herbs, and cucumbers, Its garlic, lentils, and onions." He said: "Will ye exchange the better for the worse? Go ye down to any town, and ye shall find what ye want!" They were covered with humiliation and misery; they drew on themselves the wrath of God. This because they went on rejecting the Signs of God and slaying His Messengers without just cause. This because they rebelled and went on transgressing.  (The Noble Quran, 2:61)"

    "As to those who deny the Signs of God and in defiance of right, slay the prophets, and slay those who teach just dealing with mankind, announce to them a grievous penalty.  (The Noble Quran, 3:21)"

    "God hath heard the taunt of those who say: "Truly, God is indigent and we are rich!"- We shall certainly record their word and (their act) of slaying the prophets in defiance of right, and We shall say: "Taste ye the penalty of the Scorching Fire!  (The Noble Quran, 3:181)"

    Show one logical reason that would disprove my challenge here!  Didn't Jehovah Almighty already "repent" many times in the past from Divine Decisions that He has already taken as we clearly saw above?

    Please visit: The Jews' understanding of Isaiah 53.

      

      

    7-  Conclusion:

    It is quite clear from all of the verses and points above that:

    1-  We do not have a single clear-cut statement from the entire Old Testament that says that:

  • Jesus will get crucified.
  • Jesus will resurrect from death.
  • 2-  We have many verses from both the Old and New Testaments that declare that Jesus Christ will be saved and lifted by the Angels from any and all harm that his foes will try to throw at him.

    With this said, I ask my respected Jewish and Christian readers to reconsider your beliefs.  I ask you to give Islam a serious and honest research and thought.  I strongly recommend starting with the following links:

    1. The Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran.
       
    2. What is Islam?
       
    3. The blessed Jesus in Islam.
       
    4. Answering Trinity.
       
    5. Allah is GOD Almighty's Holy Name in the Bible's original Manuscripts that were discovered - centuries before Islam.

    I want to end this article with the following verses from the Holy Quran, and the Bible's Old and New Testaments:

    "Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.  (The Noble Quran, 112:1-4)"

    "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.  (From the NIV Bible, Deuteronomy 6:4)"

    "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.  (From the NIV Bible, Mark 12:29)"

    ""Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good–except God alone."   (From the NIV Bible, Mark 10:18)"

    "God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?  (From the NIV Bible, Numbers 23:19)"

    Indeed, Jesus Christ, the man, is only a Messenger from Allah Almighty, and he was never crucified. 

    May Allah Almighty enable you to see the Light and the Truth of Islam.  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our beloved and blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

      

      

    8-  Rebuttals:

    The following interactions present detailed analysis on some of the main points of this article:

      

    (a)-  Detailed rebuttal on Isaiah 53:

    The following is an interaction about Isaiah 53 between me and a person by the name of Nakdimon:

      

    He wrote:

    1 - Isaiah 53:3 says that "Jesus" is despised by all men. In Luke 10:1, Jesus has at least 70 followers, and in other verses we're told that he fed and healed thousands (John 6:9-11, Luke 17:11-19 and other verses).

    First of all, Isaiah is describing the status of the servant in his suffering. In the case of Yeshua that would be during his trial and his death.

      

    My response:

    Right from the start you've presented your case with erroneous assumptions without proving them.  Before I start thoroughly refuting your points, I must make this important point: 

    In the New Testament, Psalm 91 is directly linked to Jesus Christ, in the New Testament, by Jesus Christ himself, while Isaiah 53 isn't linked to Jesus by anyone.  Psalm 91 said many Prophecies, and they are listed above in this article.  Satan, in the New Testament, even tried to use Psalm 91 to tempt Jesus into testing GOD Almighty to try to kill himself by throwing himself off of the canyon or mountain to see if GOD Almighty will be True to His Word and Promise and send down the Angels to lift Jesus up from death and harm as precisely mentioned in Psalm 91.  Psalm 91 further declares that Christ will call upon GOD Almighty for help to protect him from death, and GOD Almighty will honor him and protect him from death. 

    By the way, Psalm 91 says that GOD Almighty will not even let Jesus strike his foot against a rock from harm.  This is a symbolic speech that means that GOD Almighty will not let Jesus get hurt at all.  Satan tried to fool Jesus by trying to have Jesus test GOD Almighty or force GOD Almighty into executing this Promise by trying to jump off the mountain to see if GOD Almighty will truly send down the Angels to lift Jesus up or not.

    Now certainly, the Prophecy wasn't speaking about Jesus jumping off of a mountain.  It was again a symbolic speech that meant that GOD Almighty will protect Jesus from death all the way

      

    Was Psalm 91 for a limited time only?

    Some argued that Psalm 91 could've been only till the time before crucifixion, and that after that, it no longer applies.  This is false and is refuted in Psalm 91 itself once again, because Psalm 91 says clearly that the servant will call upon GOD Almighty in trouble, and GOD Almighty will save him from death!  GOD Almighty will honor him and protect him, and will not allow for ANY HARM to come near him.  The only time Jesus called upon GOD Almighty to save his life, in the New Testament, was during the time of crucifixion.

    Again, Isaiah 53 is no where linked to Jesus Christ in the New Testament.  It is Psalm 91 that is clearly linked.  Not only that, but Isaiah 53 has deliberate mistranslations and misinterpretations in it that we will see below, insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).

      

    He wrote:

    He carried the suffering alone, with no one to aid or assist him. Second, I’m looking at the Hebrew of Isaiah 53:3 and I see nothing about the servant being despised by “all” men. Can you tell me where the Hebrew word for “all” is in the text? Seeing you made the claim that Isaiah 53 is mistranslated, I take it your understanding of the text must be in accordance with what actually is written in the Hebrew text. As far as I’m concerned, the word “all” isn’t even in the text and therefore point 1 is moot!

      

    My response:

    The English translations say "all".  And even if we don't put "all" in the translation, it will still mean that since "some" does not exist in the text.  Now, "all" here would mean most or many.  But yet, Jesus was very popular by many, and he supposedly performed his Miracles in front of thousands of eye witnesses, which would've exploded his popularity among the people in no time.

    So in either case, you are refuted.

      

    He wrote:

    2 - In Isaiah 53:5 it says he was wounded for our transgressions. Now right away one might assume this is the death of Jesus. However it says he was WOUNDED not killed. But let us go with killed for your arguments sake. This is not what this verse is saying. It is saying that they made a mistake so he is paying for it. They plotted or accused against him. This is exactly what happened. And again, the verse says wounded, which further proves that Christ was never killed

    And in typical Muslim fashion you read the verse and don’t bother to read on what is said about the same servant:

    Verse 8 says he was “cut off from the land of the living”,

      

    My response:

    Again, as I mentioned above in the article, "wounded" here could easily mean felt hurt spiritually, and not necessarily got physically hurt.  Also, Psalm 91 doesn't mean that not a scratch will be upon Jesus.  GOD Almighty's Protection to Jesus from both harm and death could easily be referring to serious wounds and not minor ones.  But in either way, "wounded" here could easily refer to a spiritual one, because Jesus was probably upset because his people were about to be doomed to Hell for Eternity for rejecting his Message.

    Now as to him being cut off from the land of the living, here are what your NIV and YLT Bibles and many others say:

    1-  From http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah 53&version=NIV:

    8 By oppression [a] and judgment he was taken away.
           And who can speak of his descendants?
           For he was cut off from the land of the living;
           for the transgression of my people he was stricken.
    [b]

    a. Isaiah 53:8 Or From arrest
    b. Isaiah 53:8 Or away. / Yet who of his generation considered / that he was cut off from the land of the living / for the transgression of my people, / to whom the blow was due?

    2-  From http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah%2053&version=YLT:

    8By restraint and by judgment he hath been taken, And of his generation who doth meditate, That he hath been cut off from the land of the living? By the transgression of My people he is plagued,

      

    It's talking about Jesus' imprisonment!

    It seems quite clear to me that this quotation is referring to Jesus' arrest and him being imprisoned!  He was taken away from the people and put into isolation.  That's how I clearly see it.  In fact, the NIV Bible in its (a) foot note above, explicitly says "From arrest".  It is clearly and indisputably speaking about Jesus' arrest, which doesn't really prove anything.

      

    He wrote:

    Verse 9 speaks of his grave and his death

      

    My response:

    Verse 9 speaks about the servant being assigned a grave, which is true.  Jesus today has a grave and it is empty.  Nothing refutes Islam here.  As to "his death" my detailed refutation to this lie is further down.

      

    He wrote:

    Verse 10 speaks about giving his soul as an asham (guilt offering)

      

    My response:

    You are sadly a victim of the false interpretations and lies that are given to you.  Here is what the NIV Bible comments:

    1-  From http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah 53&version=NIV:

    10 Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
           and though the LORD makes
    [c] his life a guilt offering,
           he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
           and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

    c. Isaiah 53:10 Hebrew though you make

      
    The Hebrew doesn't say "the LORD makes".  It says "you make"!  It is talking about people and not GOD Almighty.

    Furthermore, here is what the YLT Bible says:

      

    2-  From http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah%2053&version=YLT:

    10And Jehovah hath delighted to bruise him, He hath made him sick, If his soul doth make an offering for guilt, He seeth seed -- he prolongeth days, And the pleasure of Jehovah in his hand doth prosper.

    Do you see any crucifixion in here?  It's talking about Jesus getting bruised by his enemies (again minor injuries that are not fatal), and that it caused to get sick.  And then it says that if his soul were to be a guilt offering, which proves that it wasn't make a guilt offering.

    Your point is again soundly refuted!

      

    He wrote:

    Verse 12 says he bore his soul unto death

    But none of this seems to face you, doesn’t it? And you don’t even realise that you have shot yourself in the foot. You applied this verse to Yeshua and said that this proves that he was never killed, but only wounded. Herewith you have undercut everything you have said in your article regarding Psalm 91. You cant have it both ways. Either Isaiah 53:5 is about Yeshua and he was wounded, according to your reading, or Psalm 91 is about Yeshua and he was NOT wounded, also according to your reading. So, what will it be? As far as I’m concerned point 2 is moot!

      

    My response:

    He poured his soul unto death means that he overpowered death!  He killed death.  He defeated death.  Sure, he was saved and lifted by GOD Almighty from the cross.  He was victorious over death.

    1-  From http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah 53&version=YLT

    12Therefore I give a portion to him among the many, And with the mighty he apportioneth spoil, Because that he exposed to death his soul, And with transgressors he was numbered, And he the sin of many hath borne, And for transgressors he intercedeth.

    Here we see that Jesus faced death.  But he never died!  Isaiah 53 doesn't claim it at all, and Psalm 91 clearly declares that Jesus will cry out to GOD Almighty to protect him from death, and GOD Almighty will save him and honor him!

      

    He wrote:

    3 - Isaiah 53:7 states that "he did not open his mouth". There are two possible interpretations and answers to this:

    Jesus never literally spoke a single word during the crucifixion trial. This is obviously wrong because Jesus spoke during his trial with both Pontius Pilot and the Jews. And we all know Jesus' famous and final cry to GOD Almighty when he said: "Eloi Eloi lama sabachtani!", which translates: "My GOD my GOD, why have you forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46) So wrong. He did open his mouth.

    Jesus did not object to GOD Almighty's Will. This is also wrong, because again, Jesus cried during the crucifixion "My GOD my GOD why have you forsaken me?", and he also prayed ENDLESSLY to GOD Almighty on the night of the crucifixion to not get crucified! (Matthew 16:39, Matthew 26:36-44, Luke 6:12) He even bowed down his face to Allah Almighty in worship endless times begging Him for a change in Decision. So yes, Jesus did object.


    How about a third: He never objected to his accusers. Which is the exact understanding that becomes obvious to anyone who has any regard for the context and even for the verse itself. The verse starts out “He was oppressed”. He was oppressed by whom? His accusers. It then goes on to say “like a lamb that is led to the slaughter”. He was led to his execution by whom? His accusers. He didn’t say a word of defence himself before them. Point 3 is also moot!

      

    My response:

    But Jesus in the New Testament did object to the crucifixion.  He did beg GOD Almighty to save him, and according to Psalm 91, GOD Almighty did save him.  But either way, your point here doesn't disprove anything.

    As to him being led like a lamb to the slaughter, sure, they wanted to kill him through crucifixion, but he was never crucified nor killed:

    "That they rejected Faith; That they uttered against Mary A grave false charge;  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.  Nay, Allah raised him up Unto Himself; and Allah Is Exalted in Power, Wise.  And there is none of the people of the book (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him  (Jesus) Before his death; And on the Day of Judgment He (Jesus) will be a witness Against them.   (The Noble Quran, 4:156-159)"  

    Now compare the Noble Verses to Isaiah 52:13 "...he will be raised and lifted up....".   Notice that Isaiah 52:13 did not say "....he will be RESURRECTED and lifted up...."  Not even once, did the Old Testament predict for the foretold Servant to be raised to GOD Almighty after death.  There absolutely no mention of any sort of resurrection in the Bible's Old Testament what so ever.

    And again, Psalm 91 clearly says that GOD Almighty will protect him and save him from death, and He will honor him.

      

    He wrote:

    4 - Isaiah 53:9 says that he made his grave with the wicked and the rich. According to http://scripturetext.com/isaiah/53-9.htm:

    in his death" is also a false translation to the Hebrew Mawth. At the worst, it should be translated as "in death", making the word a symbolic one as further confirmed in the Hebrew lexicon:

    in his death
    maveth (maw'-veth)
    death (natural or violent) [notice not "his death". It only says "death"]; concretely, the dead, their place or state (hades); figuratively, pestilence, ruin -- (be) dead(-ly), death, die(-d)."


    A lot of points here:
    FIRST: you look at the definition of the word “mawet” and then highlight the “figurative” sense in your article. But you don’t even regard all the other definition that your source put for you to read.

     

    My response:

    This is because no where in the entire Old Testament does it say that the Messiah will actually die!  All you have is figurative expressions about him:

    1-  Facing death, or getting exposed to death.

    2-  Having a grave assigned to him.

    3-  And now, "in death" or "in his death" doesn't at all mean that he will die.  Here is what the NIV Bible says:

    From http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah 53&version=NIV

     9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
           and with the rich in his death,
           though he had done no violence,
           nor was any deceit in his mouth.

     10 Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him [1] and cause him to suffer,
           and though the LORD makes
    [c] his life a guilt offering,
           he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
           and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

    c. Isaiah 53:10 Hebrew though you make

    [1]. This note is mine.  In the Arabic it says: وَمَعَ ذَلِكَ فَقَدْ سُرَّ اللهُ أَنْ يَسْحَقَهُ بِالْحَزَنِ,  which literally translates as:  And despite this, it delighted Allah to crush him with (ample) grieve!

    Here is how I read these verses:

    1. The servant was assigned a grave to die in despite the fact that he has done no violence.
        
    2. The servant will have ample grieve in him due to the doom of his people.  Remember!  Psalm 91:8 says that he will see the punishment of the wicked with his eyes!
        
    3. GOD Almighty will cause him to suffer (through fear and bad experience), but will not let him die because He, the Almighty, Will prolong his life!

      

    Do you see any proof here that the servant will actually die??

    Especially in light of Psalm 91?

      

      

    He wrote:

    SECOND: is there a particular reason why you have scratched “his” in the “in his death” phrase in your article?

      

    My response:

    I only quoted what the lexicon said as you also quoted me above.  But in either case, I have proven that the "death" here is definitely symbolic.

      

    He wrote:

    THIRD: all the lexicon says about death being figuratively is that it can ALSO be understood to be figuratively. But its foremost meaning is literal death.

      

    My response:

    False!  Death throughout the Bible is many times symbolic.  It is so symbolic that you can't even know for sure, from your Bible, whether Hell is an actual Fire or a place of complete death and cease of existence.  This confusion is caused primarily by the too much use of symbolic speeches for death, grave and other key words.

    To the reader, please visit: Sheol in the Bible: Hell and Death.

    Also, according to the Lexicon, maweth meant "high places" in other Biblical verses:

    in his death-Hebrew, "deaths." Lowth translates, "His tomb"; bamoth, from a different root, meaning "high places," and so mounds for sepulture (Eze 43:7). But all the versions oppose this, and the Hebrew hardly admits it. Rather translate, "after His death" [Hengstenberg]; as we say, "at His death." The plural, "deaths," intensifies the force; as Adam by sin "dying died" (Ge 2:17, Margin); that is, incurred death, physical and spiritual. So Messiah, His substitute, endured death in both senses; spiritual, during His temporary abandonment by the Father; physical, when He gave up the ghost.

    because-rather, as the sense demands (so in Job 16:17), "although He had done no," &c. [Hengstenberg], (1Pe 2:20-22; 1Jo 3:5).

    violence-that is, wrong.

      
    Notice that Adam did not literally die.  The "death" here is symbolic.

      

    Again, do you see any proof here that the servant will actually die??

    Especially in light of Psalm 91?

      

    Please visit:

    He wrote:

    FOURTH: Since you insist that “mawet” has to be figuratively and cannot in any way shape or form be literally death, can you tell us what the Hebrew word for literal death is that Isaiah should have used to give us the impression that this is a physical death and not a mere figurative death?

      

    My response:

    I first of all never said that.  But to answer your question, it would have to be the same word but with FAR MORE CLEARER TEXT to back it up!  The delimma of your Bible is that it contains far too many symbolic terms and words that it is virtually impossible sometimes to know whether it is to be taken literal or symbolically.

    Certainly, with all of the points that I mentioned above, I don't see any direct claim that the servant will actually die!

      

    He wrote:

    FIFTH: you then go to translations that aren’t translations at all. The NLT and the CEV are NOT translations, but paraphrases. You object to the word “mawet” being translated as “death”, yet you subsequently run to other translations that don’t even translate the word “mawet” at all!
    SIXTH: Even the YLT translates it incorrectly, since the YLT has an improper understanding of the word at hand. The YLT reads the word “bemotaaw” to understood as “bamotaaw”. But this reading is untenable, since “bamot” (high places) are places where idol worship is being practiced. This is NOT what Isaiah is saying about the servant.
    SEVENTH: The word “bemotaaw” DOES mean “in HIS deaths”. The suffix “-aaw” is third person singular in the masculine form denoting a plurality of possession.

    Then you go on to say:

    1. Jesus was never buried (Matthew 27:59-66, Matthew 28)! He was temporarily placed in a tomb and then his body disappeared after that. But he never ONCE was buried under ground as our dead get buried.

    2. Jesus, who was never buried from the first place, was also NEVER BURIED with the wicked and the rich. His tomb was placed in an isolated area as recorded in the gospels.

    The sheer ignorance you display is astounding. And I read someone praising you for your scholarship earlier in this thread. Burial in ancient days took place in tombs. There were two burials: stage one was that the body was placed in a tomb to decay so that only the bones were left and then stage two would follow, where the bones were collected out of the tomb and piled up in a small coffin and were buried. So, no, Yeshua was never buried as our dead get buried, because that was never the method that people got buried.

    As for your second point, since the Hebrew in Isaiah 53 is very poetic, the words of Isaiah are open to interpretation. The words are just as probable to read, that he was buried between the wicked, referring to those surrounding graves with their dead. It can also be referring to his burial by Yosef of Arimathea and all those that were with him, since the servant is described as the Righteous One that suffers for and bares the iniquities of the unrighteous multitude. In addition, you don’t know that the grave was in an isolated area since the Gospels don’t give us that information. All the Gospels say is that the grave was new and unused. You are just making this up in order to be able to raise objections. And with that said, point 4 is moot!

      

    My response:

    Your points above are all refuted above, and you're only left with desperation and confusion.  You're trying to force a certain meaning of a word upon a verse, and this meaning is not supported at all throughout the chapter!  Not only that, but the word itself, muth or mawth, had been used throughout the Bible to mean different things!

    In short, you have absolutely no proof whatsoever about the servant will actually die!  On the contrary, we see that GOD Almighty will prolong (extend, make longer) his life!

    Also, as I demonstrated amply and thoroughly above, both Psalm 91 and Isaiah 53 and 52 and other chapters clearly state that the Messiah will be lifted up and honored and protected from death and harm.

    As to the burial, again, you're forcing a certain meaning without giving any regard to the other meanings of the same word.  Yes, Jesus was never actually burried!  He was placed temporarily in a tomb according to your New Testament, which contradicts Psalm 91 and Isaiah 52, and ironically also Isaiah 53.  But regardless, I don't think this point is that relevant.  Defining what burial is, and whether or not placing Jesus in the tomb is considered burial is irrelevant here.  The main point is whether or not he actually was crucified and whether or not he actually died.

      

    He wrote:

    5 - In Isaiah 53:10-11, GOD Almighty will prolong Jesus' life and Jesus will live to even see his offspring (his children)! And Christ will see the Light and be satisfied after the suffering of his soul. The suffering of his soul here is referring to the overwhelming fear that Jesus had and the countless cries and Prayers that he made to Allah Almighty to save him. Psalm 91 further speaks clearly on this. Also, Jesus' life was never made long or extended. He only lived for 33 years, so we're told in the gospels, and he certainly never married any woman nor had any child from any woman. Yet, Isaiah 53:10 clearly says that he will live and he will have and see his children.

    Here you go again shooting yourself in the other foot. Psalm 91 says that he will not be harmed, Isaiah 53 says he will be harmed. WHAT WILL IT BE???? And then, if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, you go on to make the following mistakes:

    1. You were the one that claim others mistranslate verses. Verse 10 doesn’t say that the servant will see HIS seed (zero) but that he would see seed (zera). It says nothing about the seed being that of the servant.
    2. Just as in other places the word “zera” can be metaphorical and not referring to physical offspring of the subject. Such as Psalm 22:31 where YHWH is the subject, yet no one will say that the seed is His. And in Isaiah 57:4 where falsehood is the subject, yet no one will say that the seed is the physical product of falsehood.
    3. If you had any regard for the context of the verse, you would see that the prolonging of his days is AFTER HE DIED, which clearly points to a resurrection from the dead. So this isn’t talking about a person that would live “happily ever after” and become old. This is talking about a person living after he had died.

    So I repeat that your objection point 5 is moot!

      

    My response:

    Jesus' suffering was through his grieve with maybe some minor bruises, kicks, punches and slashes, if any!  There is no contradiction here.  Psalm 91 clearly promises that Jesus will cry out to GOD Almighty for help, and GOD Almighty WILL send down the Angels to protect him from death and harm.  "Harm" here could mean permanent or fatal harming that is too damaging.

    Also, the "will" here shows that Psalm 91 is about prophecies that will happen and will be fulfilled.  And according to Islam, yes, Jesus was lifted up and saved as I demonstrated above.

    As to Jesus seeing "seed", whether they are his children or not, the point about prolonging his life remains, and it proves that he will not die at all. 

    And as to the prolonging his life is after he dies, this is a perfect example of the type of hog wash and absurdities that Christians invent and call faith and theology.  All of your points had been based upon speculations and ridiculous absurdities.  My refutations to you, on the other hand, are based on solid proofs that prove that Jesus was never prophesied to actually die.  It just talked about him facing death, but never actually to die.

      

    He wrote:

    6 - In Isaiah 53:12, we are told that Jesus' life or soul will be poured unto death. To me, given the Islamic position about Christ never got crucified, and given the symbolic speech in Isaiah 53 chapter that most of it conflicts with what really took place with Christ in the gospels, and given the fact that many early writings in Palestine and elsewhere stated clearly that Jesus never got crucified such as in the Apocalypse of Peter and other ancient texts, then my interpretation of this verse about Jesus' life being poured unto death means to me that Jesus' life will overpower death! This is indisputably proven in Psalm 91 where it states that not only Jesus will not get crucified, but GOD Almighty will also hear his cries and will send down the Angels to PROTECT HIM and SAVE HIM. And Psalm 91 also says that Christ will call upon GOD Almighty and GOD Almighty will HEAR him and HONOR him. Christ would not have been honored if he have died the humiliating death of the cross. And certainly, he would not have been "saved" either by the Angels.

    Oh my, where to start:

    1. There was no Palestine in the first century, the land was Israel. Palestine was not invented until well into the second century.
    2. The Apocalypse of Peter is NOT an early authentic text, it is a later apocryphal book!
    3. When properly understood, Isaiah 53 ONLY makes sense when applied to the description of the Messiah in the Gospels
    4. You erroneously start with the a-chronological position that is the lens of the Quran and then look at what the text of Scripture allows for. It never even occurs to you that the Quran is a false book to begin with and that you have to look at how IT relates to the previous revelations and NOT the other way around.
    5. Your understanding of the servant overpowering death is a correct one. But not as you put it. The chapter speaks of the rejection of the servant, his suffering, his death and his resurrection, which is how he conquers death! But you don’t allow that clear reading because of your illogical position that you have to look at what the Quran allows for and adjust the reading of the text of Isaiah to that.
    6. You still haven’t shown us why we should even entertain the thought that Psalm 91 is specifically about Yeshua or even generally Messianic at all. I have challenged you about that reading to prove your point. You haven’t done so to this day. If Psalm is really “indisputably” about the Messiah, please provide the evidence to stop this despute.
    7. You wrote: “Christ would not have been honored if he have died the humiliating death of the cross. And certainly, he would not have been "saved" either by the Angels”. Which is exactly why your reading is flawed. You, again, start with the illogical position that your reading of Psalm 91 is correct (without ANYTHING that remotely looks like evidence that it is), and then judge the Gospels’ claims about the Messiah based on your flawed understanding of ONE unambiguously non-Messianic Psalm.
    8. As for Christ not being honoured if he died. What greater honour is there to be falsely accused of wrongdoing, then put to death by your accusers and then completely vindicated by God through resurrection and exaltation above the heavens? If you have an answer to that, I’m eager to see it.
    9. You completely miss the purpose for all this suffering of the servant. The verse says: “because he bared his soul unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors”. Question: What did he intercede for? How did he bare the sins of many? WHY did he bare the sins of many? Who were the “many” and the transgressors? How did he intercede for the transgressors? This verse sums it all up perfectly: Through the suffering and the death of the Righteous Servant, the sins of many transgressors will be interceded for. But, of course, you will not allow for this clear reading, because the Quran doesn’t allow you to go there.

    Your point 6 is moot!

      

    My response:

    1-  The Philistines, and the people of Palestine, existed long before Moses and his followers ever migrated to Palestine.  But this is a seperate topic altogether and is irrelevant to us here.

    2-  I've already proven in the article that the Apocalypse of Peter existed and was very popular among early Christians.

    3-  That's just your opinion and biase.

    4-  Another blasphemous and worthless opinion from you.

    5-  "Your understanding of the servant overpowering death is a correct one. But not as you put it."  Thank you for openly admitting that my interpretation is correct and is quite possible!  I already demonstrated why my interpretation is the right one above.  But thank you for demonstrating how confusing and ridiculous your Bible's use of the words.

    6 through 9- I already covered all of this in the article above.  But in regards to Jesus interceding for the transgressors, it could be as little as a simple request or prayer for them.  Did not Jesus, in the New Testament, pray to GOD Almighty and say: "Father forgive them for they know not"

    As to Jesus bearing the sins of many, it is referring to him being burdened by the sins and the wickedness of his people.  This is why the second half of the sentence says "and he made intercession for the wicked," because he loved them so much that he wanted to seek a second chance for them with GOD Almighty.  He carried their sins for them before GOD Almighty to seek intercession for them.  This is what the verse is exactly saying.

      

    Remember that Jesus was sentenced to death!  This is why we see references to death and life in Isaiah 53.

    But the main point is that YOU CAN NOT establish that he actually died!

    Conclusion: Osama, your article on Isaiah 53 is grossly erroneous, contradictory, disordered, incoherent, childishly written, poorly edited and a scholarly disaster. In other words, all that work was a total waste of time. It didn’t take any effort from my part to dismantle your silly accusations of mistranslations. Take it off and give it another go.

    My response:

    I invite you and the reader to visit: The Overwhelming Scientific Miracles of the Noble Quran to see how our Holy Book is indeed a Divine and True Miracle from GOD Almighty, and is His True and Living Word.  You are terrified from Psalm 91 and the interpretations that I gave above about Isaiah 53.  Isaiah 52 also says clearly that he will be raised and lifted.  You know well that if we establish that Psalm 91 is about Jesus Christ, then this will be the end of Christianity!  As I mentioned above:

    In the New Testament, Psalm 91 is directly linked to Jesus Christ, in the New Testament, by Jesus Christ himself, while Isaiah 53 isn't linked to Jesus by anyone.  Psalm 91 said many Prophecies, and they are listed above in this article.  Satan, in the New Testament, even tried to use Psalm 91 to tempt Jesus into testing GOD Almighty to try to kill himself by throwing himself off of the canyon or mountain to see if GOD Almighty will be True to His Word and Promise and send down the Angels to lift Jesus up from death and harm as precisely mentioned in Psalm 91.  Psalm 91 further declares that Christ will call upon GOD Almighty for help to protect him from death, and GOD Almighty will honor him and protect him from death. 

    By the way, Psalm 91 says that GOD Almighty will not even let Jesus strike his foot against a rock from harm.  This is a symbolic speech that means that GOD Almighty will not let Jesus get hurt at all.  Satan tried to fool Jesus by trying to have Jesus test GOD Almighty or force GOD Almighty into executing this Promise by trying to jump off the mountain to see if GOD Almighty will truly send down the Angels to lift Jesus up or not.

    Now certainly, the Prophecy wasn't speaking about Jesus jumping off of a mountain.  It was again a symbolic speech that meant that GOD Almighty will protect Jesus from death all the way

      

    Was Psalm 91 for a limited time only?

    Some argued that Psalm 91 could've been only till the time before crucifixion, and that after that, it no longer applies.  This is false and is refuted in Psalm 91 itself once again, because Psalm 91 says clearly that the servant will call upon GOD Almighty in trouble, and GOD Almighty will save him from death!  GOD Almighty will honor him and protect him, and will not allow for ANY HARM to come near him.  The only time Jesus called upon GOD Almighty to save his life, in the New Testament, was during the time of crucifixion.

    Again, Isaiah 53 is no where linked to Jesus Christ in the New Testament.  It is Psalm 91 that is clearly linked.  Not only that, but Isaiah 53 has deliberate mistranslations and misinterpretations in it as I demonstrated above.

      

      

    (b)-  Rebuttal from the New Testament:

    Many Christians have already attempted to directly refute this article by presenting several verses from the Bible's New Testament that say that Jesus:

    1. Was crucified.
    2. Died on the cross for our sins.
    3. Was raised from the dead.

    My response:

    My simple answer to them is that they have missed the entire point of this article.  If one could prove with ample and indisputable proofs, from the Bible's Old Testament, that GOD Almighty regarding the foretold Messiah:

    1. Will hear his cries (Psalm 91:15) and will save him (Psalm 91:3).
       
    2. He will cover him with His Protection (Psalm 91:4).
       
    3. Christ will then not have any fear in him (Psalm 91:5).
       
    4. Christ will then observe with his own eyes the punishment of the crucified ones (Psalm 91:8).
       
    5. No harm (this includes crucifixion!) or disaster will even come near Christ (Psalm 91:10....this even contradicts him getting beaten up before crucifixion).
       
    6. GOD Almighty will send down the Angels to protect him and lift him (Psalm 91:11-12, 14, Isaiah 52:13).  Not even his foot will strike the ground from his enemies pushing, grappling and punishment.
       
    7. Christ's call will be HEARD, and he will be delivered and honored (Psalm 91:15, Isaiah 52:13).  No way would these verses be valid if Christ got crucified.
       
    8. His life will be prolonged (extended) and he will live to even see his offspring (Isaiah 53:10 and Psalm 91:16, which by the way contradict Jesus never got married and had children.  In Islam's Noble Quran's 13:38, however, it is quite possible that Jesus Christ had wives and children).
       
    9. His life will overpower death (Isaiah 53:12).
       
    10. "Death" in Isaiah 53:9 is proven to be symbolic using the Hebrew Lexicon and several English translations, and it never meant a literal death.

    then one is clearly left with overwhelming proofs that prove that most of the New Testament is false, especially when we know that the Bible's own theologians admit that its books and gospels had all been:

    1. Written by mysterious men.
    2. Written by an unknown number of men.
    3. Written in unknown places.
    4. Written in unknown dates.
       
    5. Paul never even met Jesus Christ in person while the latter was on earth.  It is falsely claimed that Jesus appeared to Paul while Paul was on his way to Damascus after the "crucifixion" (Acts 9:2-4Note: Paul's name used to be Saul.  Yet, Paul admittedly wasn't even sure whether the Holy Spirit was inspirning him or not).
       
    6. None of the disciples, even in the false writings attributed to them, ever claimed that their writings were inspired or Divine.  Not only that, but we even ironically see that:
       
    7. Luke for instance, wrote his "gospel" for the sake of another person and not GOD Almighty.  See below for details.
    8. The disciples even fought with each others [1] [2].
    9. We read about direct invitations to dinner and other occasions between the disciples in the "books" [1].
    10. According to the commentaries below, all of the books of the bible were altered and corrupted.
       
    11.  The Bible's own theologians even admit that the bible contains "fictions", its original manuscripts "had been lost", and contains "fairy tails and fables".

     
    And, it is also an indisputable fact that the Bible:

    1. Is filled with ample contradictions, man's alterations, corruption, and false scientific absurdities.
       
    2. Is written in third-party narrations, which is why we find in all of the gospels' titles "This gospel according to....", and countless verses that speak about the disciples and about their activities in third-party narrations [1] [2] [3] [4], which proves that the books and gospels were certainly not written by them.
       
    3. This also means that much gossips and exaggerations and fabrications were made up and inserted into the books and gospels.  So even if some people back then thought that Jesus was crucified, they in reality never actually saw it.  It could very well be that they've only heard about it from a neighboring town and believed it.  There are certainly in the books and gospels:
       
    4. Too much gossips.
       
    5. Too wide of date gaps by the decades [1] [2] [3] [4] between when the supposed event took place and when it was actually written, by hand, in the corrupt gospels.
       
    6. Too many unknown people wrote the stories.
       
    7. Too many Prophecies in the Old Testament that promise that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, will be saved from the crucifixion.
       
    8. Too many mistranslations and desperate misinterpretations in Isaiah 53 and elsewhere.
       
    9. This also means that the books and gospels were definitely not inspired by GOD Almighty.  Paul even admits that he had his delusions and doubts.

    So now based on what objective grounds should we reject the claim about the Bible's New Testament's accounts being mostly false and fabricated by men?  And again, as I mentioned in the conclusion section, I strongly recommend visiting the following links:

    1. The Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Holy Quran.
       
    2. What is Islam?
       
    3. The blessed Jesus in Islam.
       
    4. Answering Trinity.
       
    5. Allah is GOD Almighty's Holy Name in the Bible's original Manuscripts that were discovered - centuries before Islam.

    I also want to end this rebuttal with the following verses from the Holy Quran, and the Bible's Old and New Testaments:

    "Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.  (The Noble Quran, 112:1-4)"

    "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.  (From the NIV Bible, Deuteronomy 6:4)"

    "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.  (From the NIV Bible, Mark 12:29)"

    ""Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good–except God alone."   (From the NIV Bible, Mark 10:18)"

    "God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?  (From the NIV Bible, Numbers 23:19)"

    Indeed, Jesus Christ, the man, is only a Messenger from Allah Almighty, and he was never crucified. 

    May Allah Almighty enable you to see the Light and the Truth of Islam.  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our beloved and blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

    Just who were the authors of the Bible?

    Muhammad was prophesied in the Old Scriptures.

    Psalm 91 clearly confirms that Jesus never got crucified!

    Psalm 116, 117 and 118 indisputably prove that Jesus Christ never got crucified.

    Corruption in the Old Testament.

    Answering Trinity.

    The New Testament confirms the Apocalypse (Revelation in Greek) of Peter which claims that Jesus never died on the cross!

    1. Did the Disciples of Jesus really die for the trinity and/or crucifixion lie?

    2. The many different Canons (New Testaments) that Christians believe in, and the hundreds of manuscripts.

      

    Crucifixion of Jesus is a lie according to several of the Disciples' early writings.

    Also see detailed refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20 that supposedly suggest that GOD Almighty was going to get pierced on the cross.

    History of Man's corruption of the Bible.

    The New Testament was not even written by its original authors.

    The "God" title in Isaiah 9:6 was given to others before and after Jesus.

    The early Christians rejected Trinity and never believed in it.

    Contradictions in the resurrection story in the Bible.

    Was Jesus crucified on a tree (according to Peter), cross (according to others), or never got crucified (according to Islam)?

    We only believe in Jesus' personal quotes as closest to the truth.

    Jesus according to Islam never got killed on the cross.  Allah Almighty saved him.

    The blessed Jesus in Islam.

    Do Psalm 16:8-11 refer to Jesus' resurrection as the book of Acts suggest?

    Jesus was never crucified according to the Gospel of Barnabas.

    Isaiah 42-54 seem to predict Islam and the removal of GOD Almighty's Covenant from the people of Israel.

    Deconstructing Isaiah 53 & the crucifixion/resurrection of Jesus - Exposing Paul's inventions.

    None of Jesus' disciples witnessed the crucifixion. They "all fled" and "deserted" Jesus. This further confirms Islam's claims.

  • (b)-  FRIENDS = SONS in the Bible and Quran (ولي , وليهما and خليلا):

    We further read the following in the Bible:

    Isaiah 41:8
    "But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend,

    Chronicles 20:7
    Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend?

    James 2:23
    And the scripture was fulfilled that says, "Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness," and he was called God's friend.

    So being GOD Almighty's "SON" in the Bible is equal to being GOD Almighty's "FRIEND".  Now compare this to the following from the Holy Quran:

    [002:257] Allah is the friend (ولي) and patron of those who believe. He brings them out of the depths of darkness into light. While those who do not believe, have the forces of evil as their friends; they lead them out of light, into the very depths of darkness. Such ones shall be the inmates of the fire. They will stay there forever.

    [003:122] (And remember) when the two groups among you lost heart (and almost fell out), even though Allah was their Friend and Protector (وليهما)? In Allah (alone), should the believers place their trust!

    [004:125] Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to God, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith? For God did take Abraham for a friend (خليلا).

    So the Bible's "FATHER" & "SON" for GOD Almighty and the Believers is clearly metaphoric, and it only means that GOD Almighty:

    1-  Is the Protector.
    2-  Is the Friend.
    3-  Is the Guardian.

    (c)-  BEGET = CHOSE:

    Regarding the following verse, and many others like it:

    King James Bible Psalm 2:7
    I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

    Let us look at Noble Verses 27:59, 3:33, 3:42, 7:144, 22:75, 35:32, 38:47, 39:4 from the Glorious Quran:

    [027:059] Say: Praise be to God, and Peace on his servants whom He has chosen اصطفى (for his Message). (Who) is better?- God or the false gods they associate (with Him)?

    ‏27:59 قل الحمد لله وسلام على عباده الذين اصطفى ءالله خير اما يشركون

    [003:033] God did choose اصطفى Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of 'Imran above all people,-

    ‏3:33 ان الله اصطفى ادم ونوحا وال ابراهيم وال عمران على العالمين

    [003:042] Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! God hath chosen thee اصطفاك and purified thee- chosen thee above the women of all nations.

    ‏3:42 واذ قالت الملائكة يامريم ان الله اصطفاك وطهرك واصطفاك على نساء العالمين

    [007:144] (God) said: "O Moses! I have chosen thee اصطفيتك above (other) men, by the mission I (have given thee) and the words I (have spoken to thee): take then the (revelation) which I give thee, and be of those who give thanks."

    ‏7:144 قال ياموسى اني اصطفيتك على الناس برسالاتي وبكلامي فخذ ما اتيتك وكن من الشاكرين

    [022:075] God chooses يصطفي messengers from angels and from men for God is He Who hears and sees (all things).

    ‏22:75 الله يصطفي من الملائكة رسلا ومن الناس ان الله سميع بصير

    [035:032] Then We have given the Book for inheritance to such of Our Servants as We have chosen اصطفينا: but there are among them some who wrong their own souls; some who follow a middle course; and some who are, by God's leave, foremost in good deeds; that is the highest Grace.

    ‏35:32 ثم اورثنا الكتاب الذين اصطفينا من عبادنا فمنهم ظالم لنفسه ومنهم مقتصد ومنهم سابق بالخيرات باذن الله ذلك هو الفضل الكبير

    [038:047] They were, in Our sight, truly, of the company of the Elect المصطفين and the Good.

    ‏38:47 وانهم عندنا لمن المصطفين الاخيار

    [039:004] Had God wished to take to Himself an (actual) son, He could have chosen لاصطفى whom He pleased out of those whom He doth create: but Glory be to Him! (He is above such things.) He is God, the One, the Irresistible.

    ‏39:4 لو اراد الله ان يتخذ ولدا لاصطفى مما يخلق مايشاء سبحانه هو الله الواحد القهار

    Furthermore, when Jesus was asked about when the Hour will come, he replied by saying that only GOD Almighty Knows, and that no one knows, and that Jesus himself also didn't know.  Please visit:

    http://www.answering-christianity.com/questions.htm
    http://www.answering-christianity.com/ac7.htm#links

    Jesus spelled it out clearly that he knew NOT.  And as to calling GOD Almighty "Father", and that Islam denies that GOD Almighty is an ACTUAL FATHER to anyone, in Islam GOD Almighty is called:

    1-  Rab - Lord, Father (you are the Rab of your home for being the husband and the father).

    2-  Wali - Guardian.

    In the old Aramaic and Hebrew, GOD Almighty was called what-is-equivalent-to-Islam our Rab and Wali.  But that doesn't make GOD Almighty our actual Father.  This is exactly as Judaism metaphors such as idolatry is equivalent to spiritual adultery.  No Jew is actually married to GOD Almighty to actually commit a personal marriage-adultery against GOD Almighty!  Yet, the Jews use metaphors like these.  Islam came to straighten all of this out and to set the record straight that GOD Almighty has no son and no daughter.  Otherwise, why would GOD Almighty torture us to Hell if we were His perfect sons and daughters??  No imperfect being could be an actual son of GOD Almighty (and no being is the son or daughter of GOD Almighty, period!):

    [005:018] (Both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We are sons of God, and his beloved." Say: "Why then doth He punish you for your sins? Nay, ye are but men,- of the men he hath created: He forgiveth whom He pleaseth, and He punisheth whom He pleaseth: and to God belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between: and unto Him is the final goal (of all)"

    6-  Did you know that Elohim is Allah [1] [2].  The "im" in Hebrew is a majestic plural for GOD Almighty.  The root Word is "Eloh".  And the more original Jews such as Yemenites and others say Alohim or Alah-im.  And when you yourself pronounce it, you do naturally pronounce it with a double "l": Allah.  Jews do call Him: Allah-im.  Aramaic-speaking people also call GOD Almighty Allah.  See the following videos for Biblical references and proofs.  Also, pre-Islamic Biblical archeological findings have GOD Almighty as "Allah".  So the Original Holy Name for GOD Almighty is not Eloh.  It is Allah!  Eloh is a Hebrew dialect, which not all Hebrew speakers use anyway.  Allah had always been the Original and Universal GOD Almighty even before birth of Judaism, and the existence Hebrew.  And Hebrew is a developed language from Phoenician.  See the following links:
