An important reminder to me and everyone reading this

Death can come anytime. It doesn’t matter if you’re healthy or wealthy, you’ll have to go when it’s time. You can’t challenge or avoid it:

| Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you are in high protective towers |

| The Holy Quran 4:78 |

| The death from which you run away will certainly approach you. Then you will be returned to the One who knows the unseen and the seen, and He will tell you what you have done. |

 | The Holy Quran 62:8 |

  1. Indeed, this truth was revealed many centuries, even millennia, before the Qur’an was around.

    • No; your prophet changed the message by rejecting the true Gospel, (being ignorant, he had no clue as to its contents).

      All of the book of Hebrews, written around 68 AD, proves your prophet was wrong by denying who Jesus is and denying His atonement, crucifixion, death and resurrection, and denying His power and denying the way to have peace with God – John 14:27; Romans 5:1; Matthew 11:27-30; John 5:24

    • F. F. Bruce, in his introduction of his commentary on Hebrews, provides a great discussion of the issues of the human writer of the book of Hebrews, the date (which F. F. Bruce puts at 64 AD – even earlier !), and points out that Clement of Rome (96 AD) was familiar with the book and quoted from it; that Tertullian believed it was written by Barnabas (which makes a lot of sense, given the hints that the author of Hebrews leaves – “letter of exhortation” – Hebrews 13:22 – see Barnabas’ name in Acts 4:36 and the phrase “word of exhortation/encouragement” in Acts 13:15 – and that Barnabas was a Levite points to his familiarity with the Levitical details; and that the author was a close friend of Timothy (see Hebrews 13:23). That the author deliberately was anonymous makes sense because of the disagreement that he and Paul had in Acts 15:39, it is reasonable to see that Barnabas wanted the people to focus on the content of the letter rather than who wrote it. Origen and many others have said that the content is apostolic teaching and shows familiarity with the apostle Paul, and many in the early church believed it was from Paul, or written by Luke from a sermon by Paul. The important thing to understand is that the content of the book of the Hebrews gives the evidence of being “God-breathed” and inspired because of it’s exalted nature and beauty of explaining the atonement of Christ, the fulfillment of the OT (chapters 7, 8, 9, 10), the better promises and better mediator that we have in Christ, the resurrection (13:20-21) and the intercession of Christ (chapters 7, 9) and His mediator-ship, etc. And that Christ and the church and heaven are the fulfillment of the people of God among all nations, and the land promises to Israel (chapter 4, 11:10; 11:16; 12:22; 13:14)

      The character of the book exudes being inspired and “God-breathed” and apostolic.

Do you know the identity of the author and regard him as having accomplished some major historic feat that could best be explained by him being chosen by God?

      Or do you follow a tradition which centuries after the probable composition of the text, was still unsure whether it should be in the canon or not? The people who gave you the 27 book NT canon were not sure whether to included it or not. Those people (early church fathers – who were not liberal scholars by any stretch) did not agree whether it was canon or who wrote it.

      By contrast we know the medium by which we got the Quran. Tawatur transmission going back to the Prophet. Even non-Muslim (and anti-Islam) scholars and researchers accept this.
      Furthermore, the text has intrinsic quality that convinces us it is from God.

He ran out of the city and kept on running. He didn’t stop running until he reached all the way to Samarkand where he thought he would surely be safe from Death.

    Meanwhile, back at the market in Damascus, an Angel had witnessed the encounter and asked Death if he had come for the man whom he had so frightened. The Angel of Death replied, “No I did not come for him at this time, but I do have an appointment with him ten years from now in Samarkand.”

    • The “Asbab ol Nozul” اسباب النزول demonstrates that the Qur’an was not from all eternity past, as there is a lot of historical context for the reasons for the revelations coming when they did; and only in Sunna and Hadith does it give enough details in order to even understand what some passages in the Qur’an are talking about. There is no way to get a full understanding of some of the text (it is unorganized and jumps all over the place with no order or historical background at times) without also knowing Hadith, Sunna, Tafsirs, Tarikh, Sira, etc. Details of Surah 33 and Muhammad’s marriage to Zainab Bint Jahash, and permission to marry more than 4 call into question his prophethood and inspiration and integrity.

      This guy makes a good point:
      “However, there are a number of passages in the Qur’an and the Hadith, which prove, beyond any reasonable doubt, that Muhammad’s revelations were influenced by his desires. Let me give you four examples.

      First, Surah 4, verse 3 of the Qur’an says that Muslims can marry up to four women. But we know from references in Bukhari and other sources that Muhammad had at least nine wives at one time. So why did Muhammad get more than four wives when the Qur’an says that Muslim men can only marry four women? Well, Muhammad received a special revelation, Surah 33, verse 50, which says that he, and he alone, could have as many wives as he wanted. Now I don’t know about you, but when the guy who’s receiving the revelations starts getting special moral privileges—namely, more sex partners than anyone else—I start getting awfully suspicious.

      Second, Muhammad had an adopted son named Zaid, who was called Zaid bin Muhammad—Zaid, son of Muhammad. One day, Muhammad went to visit him and was greeted by Zaid’s wife, Zaynab, who was very beautiful, and who was wearing very little clothing at the time. When Muhammad saw her, he supposedly received some sort of revelation telling him that he was going to marry her, even though she was already married to his adopted son, and Muhammad walked away praising Allah. When Zaid found out that Muhammad was attracted to his wife, he divorced her, so that Muhammad could marry her. Muhammad was worried about what people might think if he married Zaynab, but then he began receiving revelations to justify the marriage. This is when he received Surah 33, verse 37 of the Qur’an, which says that it’s okay to marry the divorced wives of your adopted sons. I’ve never met a person who struggles with this problem. I’ve never met someone who struggles with whether he should marry the divorced wife of his own adopted son. So this verse has no purpose other than justifying what Muhammad did.

      Third, Muhammad’s wife Hafsa once came home early and caught Muhammad in her bed with another woman—his slave-girl, Mary the Copt. Seeking to avoid further conflict, Muhammad promised that he would stop having sex with his slave-girl. But a little later, Muhammad started having sex with Mary again. How did he justify his sexual relationship with Mary when he had taken an oath to stop having sex with her? Well, he received a revelation. Surah 66, verses 1-2 of the Qur’an, where Allah says:
      O Prophet! why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you; you seek to please your wives; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. Allah indeed has sanctioned for you the expiation of your oaths and Allah is your Protector, and He is the Knowing, the Wise.
      Notice, Muhammad swears, “I’ll never have sex with my slave-girl again.” Then he starts having sex with her, because Allah told him to break his oath. Very interesting. “

    • there are no real contradictions in the gospels – there are some apparent and surface level contradictions, but by careful study, there are good explanations for them all.

    • wishful thinking based not on objective study but on religious belief.

    • Focuses on Jerusalem rather than in Galilee – the author purposefully focuses on ministry in Jerusalem and private meetings with disciples and things that the other 3 did not report;

      Yet fully agrees with trials, crucifixion, death, resurrection of Al Masih. (totally refutes Qur’an 4:157 and Islam)

    • “Matthew – eyewitness and apostle and disciple of Jesus”
      You don’t have a gospel written by Matthew. Why else would an eyewitness copy from Mark who was not an eyewitness.
      “Mark – wrote for Peter – disciple, eyewitness, apostle”
      No evidence for that whatsoever. Nowhere is it stated that Mark wrote it. That’s just a later tradition of church fathers attributing it to Mark.
      “Luke – student of apostle Paul, physician, fellow missionary on the apostle Paul’s team; interviewed Mary and the other disciples who did not write gospels – “eyewitnesses and servants of the word” – see Luke 1:1-4”
      If Luke based his gospel on eyewitnesses then most of his gospel wouldn’t be a copy of Mark’s gospel.
      Plus you don’t have anything to test Luke’s reliability. How do you know he is reliable?
      “John – disciple of Jesus, eyewitness, apostle”
      And yet again no evidence that John wrote John.

    • Well, it’s a true statement bad samaritan. The true God revealed both.

      In contrast, your Canaanite god only “inspired” a Canaanite epic telling the stories of some heroes and the genocidal commands of your old man of a god. Lulz…
