1.2.3.23 But he must be God, he was crucified for blasphemy:


Some members of the Church, in an attempt to prove that Jesus (pbuh) was God would quote for example John 10, as seen in sections 1.2.2.7 and 1.2.3.2, in an attempt to prove that Jesus was God and that this is the very reason why the Jews crucified him. However, as seen in that section, he never said what they claimed and this was not the real reason why they so dearly wanted to kill him. It was only one of many excuses they had tried to come up with in order to mask their true reasons and justify before the masses a conviction of death. The real reason was that he was the Messiah that God had promised them and they did not want a Messiah who would come and rebuke them telling them that they were wrong, misguided, full of corruption and needed to mend they ways before God took vengeance upon them, rather, they wanted a Messiah who would come and tell them what wonderful and pious elect children of God they are were and then to lead them into an ultimate all-conquering victory over all of nations of the earth. So they rejected him, just as six centuries later they would also reject the "second Messiah" they were promised and whom they would travel to the barren deserts of Arabia to await (see chapters 6, 7 and 10 ). We read the confirmation of this in the Bible:

"His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jews; for the Jews had already agreed that anyone who confessed that Jesus was the Messiah would be put out of the synagogue."

(RSV) John 9:22

"Now some of the people of Jerusalem were saying: 'Is not this the man whom they are trying to kill? And here he is speaking openly but they say nothing to him!. Can it be that the authorities really know that this is the Messiah?'"

(RSV)John 7:25-26

"Whosoever desires honor, power and glory, then [let them know that] to Allah belongs all honor, power and glory. To Him ascends the good word, and the righteous deed does raise it; but those who plot iniquities, theirs will be an awful doom; and the plotting of such (folk) will come to naught."

The noble Qur'an, Fatir(35):10

"Do not think that Allah is unaware of that which the unjust do. He but gives them respite until the day when [their] eyes shall stare in horror. [They will be] hastening forward, their heads raised up [towards the sky], their gaze returning not to them, and their hearts empty (out of terror). And warn mankind of the Day when the torment will come unto them; then the unjust will say: 'Our Lord! Respite us for a little while, we will answer Your call and follow the messengers!' (It will be said): 'Had you not sworn aforetime that you would not leave [the world for the Hearafter]? And you dwelt in the dwellings of those who wronged themselves, and it was clear to you how We had dealt with them and we put forth many parables for you.' Indeed they plotted their plot and with Allah is their plot, though their plot were such that [if it were possible] it would remove the mountains "

The noble Qur'an, Ibraheem(14):42-46

"So when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief, he said: 'Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah?' The disciples said: 'We will be the helpers of Allah; we believe in Allah and bear witness that we have surrendered unto Him (Literally: 'we are Muslims'). Our Lord, we believe in what you have sent down, and we follow the Messenger, so write us down among those who bear witness.' And they (the disbelievers) plotted and Allah plotted, and Allah is the best of plotters. When Allah said: 'O Jesus! I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you of those who disbelieved, and I will make those who follow you [on true Monotheism which you preached to them] above those who disbelieved until the Day of Resurrection, then you will all return unto Me and I will judge between you in the matters in which you used to dispute"

The nobel Qur'an, A'al-Umran(3):52-54
