- Biblical Illness: Jesuswas rescued from death as an infant (Matthew 2:13), and Jesus rescued himself on a few occasions (John 7:1, John 8:59, John 12:36-37), why then wasn’t Jesus rescued from the cross?
Excuse; It was not his time yet;
“Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.” (John 7:30)
Rebuttal: There is no chronological significance in the alleged crucifixion date. In fact, if it were to have sacrificial credit, it was supposed to be done when Jesus was a child (Exodus 12:5);
“You may choose either a sheep or a goat, but it must be a one-year-old male without any defects.”
- Biblical Illness: Jesusappeared in a different body after the resurrection (Mark 16:12) Vs Jesus did not appear in a different body after the resurrection (Luke 24:34)
Excuse; copyist error. (Mark 16:9-20) is not found in many ancient manuscripts.
Rebuttal: Jesus’ Original Language is Aramaic, Thus Pagan Greek Translations Are Invalid. The Quran Has Been Kept Pure in the Semitic Language of Arabic that is Like Aramaic for 1,400 Years, Why Drink Sick Polluted Water When You Can Drink Pure Water? .
Quranic Cure: Bible scholars confirm that their eyes were made to see a different person rather than Jesus (Luke 24:16). This adds to the perplexity in the Bible because if Jesus looked like someone else, then inevitably the person on the cross was someone made to appear to be Jesus, since Jesus was made to appear as someone else. This makes perfect sense in the Quran; otherwise, there would be no logical explanation for Jesus to be formed like someone else in the cave.
- Biblical Illness: Are prayers answered according to the Bible, namely with one of the most righteous Prophets; Jesus?
The humble will be answered;
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
The earnest and pure will be answered;
“If you would earnestly seek God and make your supplication to the Almighty, if you were pure and upright, surely now He would awake for you, and prosper your rightful habitation.” (Job 8:5-6)
The fearful will be answered;
“He will fulfill the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.” (Psalms 145:19)
The righteous will be answered;
“The Lord is far from the wicked: but he hears the prayer of the righteous.” (Proverbs 15:29)
Even Jesus himself teaches prayers will be answered; Prayers will be publicly answered;
“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” (Matthew 6:6)
Everyone’s prayers will be answered;
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8)
If two pray together (i.e. Jesus and Mary or the Trinity), their prayers will be answered;
“if two of you on earth agree to ask anything at all, it will be granted to you by my Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19)
The believers will be answered;
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Matthew 21:22)
Worshippers will be answered;
“The Lord said, “Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.” (John 9:31)
We see that in general the righteous will be granted redemption upon request. Based on these prerequisites, the actions and words of Jesus amply qualify him for rescue.
We then see Jesus did indeed attempt to collect his due by praying for God to extricate him;
“And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.” (Matthew 26:39), (Mark 14:36), and (Luke 22:42)
Here, Jesus facing execution, prays to God for freedom, yet contrary to all the promises that the righteous will be saved; Jesus’ desperate prayer is forsaken;
“With a loud cry Jesus died.” (Mark 15:37) and (Matthew 27:50)
Here Jesus cries a second time, with no words recorded, and dies, while in Luke and John, contrary words were reported, yet the outcome was the same, death.
“Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Father! In your hands I place my spirit!” He said this and died.” (Luke 23:46) Or “Jesus drank the wine and said, “It is finished!” Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” (John 19:30)
In three of the four, Jesus cried at least once and prayed to be saved. In two of the four, Jesus cried a second time. In all four Gospels, Jesus appeared to have died, displaying neglect on the part of God in regards to the prayers of Jesus.
Adding insult to injury, because of this apparent unanswered prayer in the Bible, Jesus is portrayed as a disbelieving, doubtful, anxious man, wishing to be rescued, then lashing out when rejected;
“And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, la’ma sabach-tha’ni?” that is, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”” (Matthew 27:46)
Non-Christian religions see this unanswered prayer as a disqualification of Jesus, meaning, he did not fit the criteria to be saved, while the Quran teaches the Prayer of Jesus was answered.
Excuse; God wanted Jesus to die, that is why the prayers of Jesus to be saved were not answered.
Rebuttal: What? Here is where Christian apologists confuse the Bible even more. On the one hand Christians claim Jesus is God, and as we have read, Jesus obviously wanted to be saved, therefore the triune god wanted to be saved from the cross. However, in order to explain the contradiction, the Christians try to have it both ways by saying at that moment, Jesus was not God, and the Real God did not want Jesus saved. They try to have their cake (sacrifice) and eat it too (salvation). Christians claim that their trinity is One God, if so, how could their ‘One God’ want two different things at that same moment? Here we uncover their fallacy because you cannot have One God fighting Himself to live.
Quranic Cure: Allah, being the Ultimate Authority, has issued a verdict settling the crucifixion incident;
“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” (Quran 4:157)
Therefore, the Quran proves what Bible editors have been trying to hide, based on the differing testimonies from Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John, we the lawful jury find the Jewish defendants not guilty of Murder.
If the Christians love Jesus as much as they claim, the Christians would not insist Jesus was killed with all the conflicting evidence surrounding the murder, especially since he was found alive a few days later.
Would Christians Rather Have Guilt and Responsibility For Guilt or a Murdered Christ? Only Those With Guilt More Than Murder Would Rather Have Jesus Dead, Thus Proving They Are Actually Followers of Satan, Wanting God Dead to Not Care About Killing Others.
