In the name of Allāh,
the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Peace and Blessings of Allāh on Mohammad.
Allāh–the Glorious and the High,
Lord of the worlds
Mohammad–who brought the world
to our feet and eternity to our arms.
Christians make all kinds of fancy claims that Jesus was Divine and vicarious atoner and that mankind inherited sin from Adam.
However, the Bible not only contains “monumental errors” and was “tampered with” as Christians have admitted –a Book from God would not have “errors”– the Books of the Old Testament “were written in several languages over a period of more than nine hundred years, based on oral traditions;” and the Gospels were written more than a hundred years after Jesus; and are “according to” Matthew, Mark, Luke and John –not according to God or Jesus– who “were not eye-witnesses of the data they recorded” and is the King James “Version” –not God’s or Jesus’ Version. And, initially Jesus’ teachings were transmitted “orally” and the current four Gospels did not acquire official status until “170 A.D.” (some 140 years after Christ) and not until “excisions” were made from the prevailing “abundance of literature” on Jesus and after numerous other “Gospels were suppressed.”1
So unless Christians have the original HEBREW text of the Old Testament and the original HEBREW or ARAMAIC text of the Gospels (as Jesus was said to have spoken Hebrew or Aramaic) to support their claims their submissions are useless. Judge Julie would not blink twice to throw such “hearsay” materials and its submitter(s) out of Court.
Also the writings of The Acts and the many letters of the New Testament such as Romans, Corinthians, Timothy etc; are the writings of Paul (not the words of God or Jesus): “More than half of the Acts of the Apostles…together with the letters written by him (St. Paul) or in his name, comprises one-third of the New Testament”2
God gave clear doctrines to Jesus as to his status and mission. And Jesus taught clearly and simply his status and mission.
Jesus declared, and Allāh, God, confirmed in His Qur’an, that he (Jesus) was a messenger to the Jews and foretold the coming of the Prophet Mohammad:
“I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel;” “And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever;” “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth”–(Matthew 15:24; John 14:16; 16:13).
“And when Jesus, son of Mary said: O Children of Israel, surely I am the messenger of Allāh to you…and giving the good news of a Messenger who will come after me, his name being Ahmad” (Ahmad being another name of the Prophet Mohammad)–(Qur’an 61:6).
In contrast to Jesus’ teaching of him being only a prophet –a seeker of the lost tribes of Israel, that eternal life lies in following the Mosaic Law till the coming of the Comforter who will guide into “all truth” and “abide forever”– Christians have cast Jesus into the mold of David.
Christians have made Jesus Divine, vicarious atoner for non-existent inherited sin; as judge, redeemer, and renewer of the world; and as “mediator between God and man.” Encyclopaedia Britannica notes:
“David was Israel’s first successful king…
David became the prototype of an awaited Messiah. As symbol of the Messiah, the return of David, or the coming of David’s “son” stood for the reassertion of the divine rule and presence in history: to judge it, to redeem it, to renew it. David thus became the symbol of a fulfilment in the future, final peace.
In the apocalyptic developments in Judaism that mark the last two pre-Christian centuries, the symbolic rule of David stressed his status as divine mediator. The son of David became more emphatically a heavenly figure, the son of God enthroned to rule over the nations of the world. This was the matrix for the rise of Christianity. The new faith interpreted the career of Jesus by means of the titles and functions assigned to David in the mysticism of the Zion cult, in which he served as priest-king and in which he was the mediator between God and man.”3
Clearly, Christians tailored Jesus to suit the Bible.
Whereas God made David a material king, Christians try to make Jesus a spiritual king. And to effect this, Christians consigned Jesus to the bed of celibacy, crowned him with Divinity, made him scapegoat for non-existent inherited sin, and consecrated him ruler of the future-world. (See Jesus-saves; Christianity-a fake).
(Whereas the Gospels portray Jesus as being not married, Allāh tells us in His Qur’an: “And certainly We sent messengers before thee (Mohammad) and appointed for them wives and children”–(Qur’an 13:38). And Allāh mentions Jesus among eighteen prophets who had fathers and descendants/children: “AndWe gave him (Abraham) Isaac and Jacob. Each did We guide; and Noah did We guide before, and of his descendants, David and Solomon and Job and Joseph and Moses and Aaron. And thus do We reward those who do good (to others): And Zacharias and John and Jesus and Elias; each one (of them) was of the righteous, And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot; and each one (of them) We made to excel the people; And some of their fathers and their descendants and their brethren. And We chose them and guided them to the right way”–(Qur’an 6:84-87).
And according to a recent newspaper report, a 4th century papyrus fragment was found that suggests Jesus had a “wife”: “The translation of the 4th century Coptic papyrus by a Harvard scholar read “Jesus said to them, my wife.””4
To have children, Jesus must have a wife/consort, but according to the Gospels Jesus had no wife and children. If Jesus was married why is there no mention of it in the Gospels?
The answer would seem simple. If Jesus had a wife and children, and as Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God, it would mean that God has a daughter-in-law and grandchildren, and even great grandchildren and even other greats as we move down the trail of descendants; and it would also mean that since all these descendants would be of “Divinity,” as their father, they also would have the powers to perform miracles through the ages and also among us today –if Jesus’ followers, being mortals, could perform such miracles as Jesus gave them power–(Matt. 10:7-8)– consider how much more potent his own “divine” off-spring would be.
These ‘multi-great’ grandchildren would be able to feed multitudes on a few loaves and fish –which would take care of any famine or starvation, and food-banks. These “Divine” descendants would also be able to save the cash flow of the world’s ‘drinkers’ by turning mega loads of water into wine –though this might upset and put the ‘spirit’ czars out of business; they may have to hook fish or fork potato banks for a living.
These “heavenly” children would also heal the blind and the sick and raise the dead –man would have found his utopia– though all this would put an end to doctors and hospitals and undertakers and grave-diggers, and to stem-cell research and cloning, as well as an end to all the millions in money collected for cancer and other researches.
The scenario would pretty much be the same regarding the belief that Jesus is God –God would have a mortal wife, children, grand’s, etc.
Thus, the builders of the Church probably having foreseen this expanse of insanity ruled it necessary to wall Jesus in the room of celibacy. Or, since Jesus’ purpose was to be scapegoat for sinners, there was no need for him to have a wife and children.
Any wonder the Church does not seem please over the discovery of this ‘Jesus had a wife’ document?
Contrary to Biblical narrative that the Pharaoh of Moses’ time perished in the sea, Allāh the All-Knowing revealed in His Qur’an 10:92 that He saved Pharaoh’s body to be a sign for future generations: “But this day We shall save thee in thy body that thou mayest be a sign to those after thee. And surely most of the people are heedless of Our signs.”5 It took the world some twelve hundred years after this Qur’anic revelation, and nearly twenty-five hundred years after the fact, to discover this truth of Allāh.
Allāh also revealed in His Qur’an 89:7 the existence of a city named Iram:“Hast thou not considered how thy Lord dealt with ‘Åd, (Of) Iram, having lofty buildings.” Iram seemed unheard of in history. But the December 1978 edition of National Geographic carried an article on the excavation of a city named “Ebla” whereby this city of Iram is mentioned. The article titled EBLA Splendor Of An Unknown Empire is written by Howard La Fay. The article states:
“…in 1975”, “Dr. Paolo Matthiae of the University of Rome” discovered “the ruins of a palace apparently destroyed in the 23rd century B.C.”
“The names of cities thought to have been founded much later, such as Beirut and Byblos, leap from the tablets….Also included is Iram, an obscure city referred to in Sura 89 of the Koran.
Most intriguing of all are the personal names found on the Ebla tablets. They include Ab-ra-mu (Abraham), E-sa-um (Esau), and Sa-u-lum (Saul).”
“The Book of Genesis introduces him (Abraham) as a native of Ur of the Chaldees, in southern Mesopotamia. Scholars have always taken this at face value.”
“But we now encounter a Syrian capital, dating from five hundred years before the widely accepted date for Abraham….Muslim scholars have long held that Abraham’s epic journey occurred about 2300 B.C.” (pp. 731, 735, 736). (See also Ency. Britannica, Vol. 1. Art. Abraham.).
It took mankind over two thousand years to discover the truth of the Qur’an that the body of Ramses (the Pharaoh of Moses’ time) was preserved for future generations; it took some four thousand years for the world to discover the Qur’anic truth about the existence of the city of Iram.
Mohammad, through revelation from Allāh, also made unerring prophecies and pronouncements on science. Whether the papyrus fragment is genuine or not, the words of Allāh enshrined in His Qur’an are true. Jesus had a “wife.”
Whereas Jesus was only a messenger of God sent to the Israelites to call them to “repentance” and “forgiveness”, Christians consigned Jesus to the bed of celibacy, crowned him with Divinity and made him scapegoat for non-existent inherited sin; and whereas David was material king Christians make Jesus spiritual king of future-world. (See Jesus-like David; Jesus-foretold; Jesus-1000-year rule).
Jesus says you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free (from lies, falsehood, and blasphemy). And the Divine truth is, Jesus was a prophet of God and “THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLĀH; MOHAMMAD IS THE MESSENGER OF ALLĀH!”

5. Muhammad Ali comments on this verse, Qur’an 10:92: “That the body was really cast ashore, though the Bible does not mention it, is clear from the fact that the body of Rameses II, who is regarded as the Pharaoh of Moses, has been discovered as preserved among the mummies in Egypt (En. Br. Art. Mummy). This is another instance of the insufficiency of the Bible narrative and of the truth of the Quranic statement where it supplements the Bible. The discovery now made could not have been known to the Holy Prophet; it was not known to any person in the world till very recently.” MA’s invaluable translation of the Qur’an can be viewed online: www.muslim.org.
