JESUS vs. JEWS
Jesus dying for the sins of others is based on Christian’s claim that Jesus was of virgin birth and thus free of inherited sin. But, as shown elsewhere, not only is there no inherited sin, Paul –who knew more than Christians and whom Christians follow– taught that Jesus had a human father:
(a) “Therefore (David) being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the FRUIT OF HIS LOINS, ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne”–(Acts 2:30)1
(b) “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ…which was made of the SEED OF DAVID ACCORDING TO THE FLESH” –(Romans 1:3)
(c) “Remember that Jesus Christ of the SEED OF DAVID”–(2 Timothy 2:8).
And “seed” is sperm, and “according to the flesh” is male-female union: sexual intercourse.
Jesus dying for sin was alien to the Jews of his time. Khwaja Nazir Ahmad notes in his revealing book Jesus in Heaven on Earth:
“The Jews, who are represented as inimical to Jesus in the Canonical Gospels, took him to be legitimate and born in the ordinary na-tural way–(Jewish Encyclopaedia; Vol. VII, 170). Whiston in his Dissertation I to the works of Josephus remarks: All the believing Jews and all the rest of the Nazarene Jews esteemed Jesus with one consent, as a mere man, the son of Joseph and Mary–(Ibid; Vol. III, 276). Hastings also says that: It is quite clear that Jesus was popularly looked upon by his contemporaries as Jose-ph’s son by natural generation–(Hastings, Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels, 808).”
Khwaja also notes:
“So long as the early Christians did not assert the virgin birth of Jesus, none of his contemporaries challenged his legitimacy. But the moment Jesus was raised to the ped-estal of Godhead, the imaginations of the hagiographers had full scope to indulge in the most affecting or foolish fabrications accorded to their literary skill. In the second century they attributed supernatural birth to Jesus. The Pagans retorted with the charge of illegitimacy. The Christian legendary cult has to thank itself for this cal-umny against Jesus and Mary. Josephus had provided the Pagans with a parallel–(Josephus, Antiq; XVIII: 3-4) for he records that Mundus, a Roman knight, won Paulina, the chaste wife of a Roman noble, to his wishes by causing her to be invited by a priest of Isis into the temple of the goddess under a pretext that the god Anubis desired to embrace her. In the innocence of faith Paulina resigned herself and would perhaps have after-wards believed that she gave birth to the son of this god had not the intriguer, with bitter scorn, soon after dis-closed to her the true state of affairs.
The Pagans substituted Mary for Paulina and Joseph (for) Pandera, a soldier, for the Roman knight mentioned by Josephus
This calumny was taken up by the Jews of the second century, and found a place in the Talmud.2 Jesus was then styled as ben Pan-dera. (i.e. son of Pandera). It is this calumny of which Celsus accuses Jews and which is referred to by Origen–(Orig; C: Celsus, I:32) but of which the Jews of the time of Jesus were ignorant and innocent.”3
That Jesus was God/Son of God and vicarious atoner and mankind inherited sin were so alien to Jews that Jews chose to die in the Christian inferno than desecrate their Holy Sheema –God is One– and embrace the man-made crucifix of Trinity, inherited sin and vicarious atonement.4
Apart from Divinity of Jesus, “inherited sin” and vicarious atonement being alien to Jews, perhaps Jews had other issues with Jesus’ teachings (if the Gospels are authentic) such as:
(1)Whereas God says a man is to give a monetary ransom for his soul against disease and to make material offering as “an atonement for our SOULS,” and that “The father shall not die for the children, neither shall the children die for the fathers, but EVERY MAN SHALL DIE FOR HIS OWN SIN;” Jesus says he came to die as a “ransom” for many –(Ex. 30:12, 16; Num. 31:50; Deut. 24:16; Eze. 18:20; 2 Chr. 25:4; Matt. 20:28; 26:28).
Jesus says his life is given as a “ransom for many” and his blood is shed for many “for the remission of sins”–(Matt. 20:28; 26:28). That Jesus was “ransom” and remitter of sins only for his disciples is clearly stated in Luke 22:28: “This cup is the new testament in my blood which is shed for YOU.” However, Jesus was mistaken; as shown in JESUS-INHERITED SIN he was not killed.
According to the Gospels Jesus was confused about his mission. Jesus says he was sent only for Jews and prayed only for them and he came specifically to seek and save the lost tribes of Israel; then he says his blood will be shed for many as “ransom” and as “remission for sins” and he would be betrayed and gave instructions that the Gospels be preached to the world. Moreover, Jesus saying he is “ransom” and remitter of sins contradict his saying that eternal life lies in following the Mosaic Law.
(2)Whereas in one breath Jesus condemned the Mosaic law of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth and says to give the other cheek instead, in the next breath Jesus com-manded his people to do whatever the scribes and Pharisees bid them do because they sit in Moses’ seat (and the scribes and Phari-sees follow the Mosaic law which requires an eye for an eye, etc;)–(Matthew 5:38-39; 23:2-3; Exodus 21:24).
(3)Whereas in one breath Jesus says he came to uphold the Law of Moses and gave instructions to follow this Law, and which Law says that a man can divorce his wife for any unpleasantness in her and they can both marry others, in the next breath Jesus says: “Everyone who divorces his wife and mar-ries another commits adultery; and he who marries one who is divorced from a husband commits adultery”–(Matthew 5:17; 23:2-3; Deut. 24:1-4; Matt. 5:32; Luke 16:18).
(4) Whereas in one breath Jesus says his blood “is shed for many for the remission of sins,” in the next breath Jesus says: “I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to REPENTANCE”(NOT to vicarious atone-ment)–(Matt. 26:28; 9:13. This is how Jesus “save(d) his people from their sin,” by calling them to “repentance”–Matt. 1:21).
(5) Whereas in one breath Jesus says “salvation is of the Jews,” and regards non-Jews as “dogs” and “swine” and ordered they be avoided and he even preached in parables so they would not understand and be saved, in the next breath Jesus says to preach to the world–(John 4:22; Matt. 7:6; 15:26; 24:14).
(6)Whereas in one breath Jesus says “I pray for them (Jews): I pray not for the wor-ld;” “I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel,” and tells his disciples not to go to the Gentiles and Samaritans but to “the lost sheep” of Israel, in the next breath Jesus says to preach to all nations–(John 17:9; Matt. 15:24; 24:14; 10:5-6; 24:14).
(7)Whereas in one breath Jesus says he came “to give his life a ransom for many,” in the next breath Jesus prayed to great drops of sweat to be spared this great honor of “ransom for many,” and blasphemed that God had “forsaken” him; and that he would be “betrayed to be crucified” (Jesus cannot be betrayed if he came to fulfill scriptures and die a “ransom for many”–(Matt. 20:28; 27:46; 26:2).
(8)Whereas in one breath Jesus says to love your ene-mies, bless cursers, reward haters, pray for persecutors, and forgive seven-ty times seven, in the next breath Jesus charged that those who are not with him are ag-ainst him, and commanded that his enemies who do not want him to rule be brought and slain, and he lambasted the people of Capernaum, Chorazin and Bethsaida for not believing in him (instead of loving, blessing, reward-ing, praying, and forgiving them, which is hypocrisy)–(Matt. 5:42; 18:21-22; 12:30; Luke 19:27; Matt. 11:20-24).
(9)Whereas in one breath Jesus says he came to fulfill prophecies, in the next breath he asks the Jews “why go ye about to kill me?” (and he full well knew they had to kill him so he can fulfill prophecies)–(Mark15: 28; Luke 22:37; John 7:19).
(10)Whereas Elijah and Enoch ascended to heaven, Jesus says: “no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the son of man which is in heaven”–(2 Kings 2:11; Hebrews 11:5; Gen. 5:24; John 3:13. If Jesus is “Son of God” who came down from heaven and the son of man was till then yet in heaven to come, who is this son of man? Prof. Abdul Ahad Dawud B.D. –“the former Reverend David Benja-min Keldani, B.D., a Roman Catholic priest of the Uni-ate-Chaldean sect” – has shown in his book Muhammad in the Bible that this Son of man is the Prophet Moham-mad; and of whom Jesus foretold as the “Comforter”).
(11)Whereas in one breath Jesus challenged the Mo-saic law of stoning the adulteress, in the next breath Jesus instructed his people to do whatever the scribes and Pharisees bid them do (and the scribes and Pharisees follow the Mosaic law which requires stoning the adult-eress)–(John8:3-11; Matt. 23:2-3; Lev. 20:10; Deut. 22:22).
(12)Whereas in one breath Jesus says the world will end after the Gospels are preach-ed to all nations, in the next breath Jesus says no man knows the day and hour of the work of God–(Matt. 24:14; Mark 13:32. It is poor cerebration to entertain God wants Christians to preach to anyone let alone preach to the world “inherited sin” and “vicarious atonement” –doctrines that attribute in-justice to Him and make Him complicit in murder).
(13)Whereas in one breath Jesus says to not bear false witness, in the next breath Jesus says: “Agree with thine adversary quickly….lest at any time the adversary deli-ver thee to the judge, and the judgedelivertheetothe officer, and thou be cast into prison” (and which agree-ment would open the door to all manner of lies, decep-tion andfalsewitnessing)–(Matt. 19:18; 5:25).
(14)Whereas in one breath Jesus says to give the other cheek to your assailant, in the next breath Jesus com-manded his followers to sell their garments and buy swords(whichishypocrisy)–(Matt. 5:39; Luke 22:36).
(15)Whereas in one breath Jesus says to go another mile with your compeller, in the next breath Jesus boots his compellers (bird-sellers and money-changers) out of the temple (which is hypocrisy)–(Matt. 5:41; 21:12).
(16)Whereas in one breath Jesus says love your neigh-bor, in the next breath Jesus lab-els people “dogs” and “swine” (which is hypocrisy)–(Matt. 22:39; 7:6; 15:26).
(17)Whereas God instructs man to “multiply, and replenish the earth;” Jesus encourages man to be “eunuchs”/celibates–(Gen. 2:28; Matt. 19:12. If everyone practiced celibacy then, barring cloning and artificial means of reproduction, in about 120 years man would be extinct. God would have to send another Adam and Eve to “fill” the earth. And admonish His “son” or Himself, as Christian say Jesus is God, to not tell men to become eunuchs or preach and/or practice celibacy).5
(18)Whereas in one breath Jesus says honor parents, love enemies, bless cursers, do good to haters, pray for users and persecutors, and preach to the world–(Matt.19:19; 5:44-46; 24:14), in the next breath Jesus disowned his mother and bequeathed a legacy of strife, hate, and division to man and earth:
-“Then one said unto him (Jesus), Behold, thy mother and thy brethren…But he answered and said, Who is my mother? And who are my brethren?” (and he gestured to his disciples) “Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother”–(Matt. 12:46–50. Mary could not have been guilty of neglecting God so that Jesus should dishonor her; Mary was chosen over all women because she was“highly favoured”by God, and “blessed”–Luke 1:28. In fact, Christians honor Mary as “Mother of God.” And, as Christians claim, Mary makes appearances and even cures/gives power to people so that they are canonized as saints).
-“I am come to send FIRE on the earth;” “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth, Nay; but rather DIVISION: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; and the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law;” “Think NOT that I am come to send peace on earth: I came NOT to send peace, but a SWORD”–(Luke 12:49, 51-53; Matt. 10:34).
-“If any man come to me, and HATE NOT hisfather, andmother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, hecannot be my disciple”–(Luke 14:26).
With such waffling, contradictions, and hypocrisy (and hypocri-sy is a sin) it is hardly any wonder that Jews did not, and to this day do not, accept Jesus as God or Son of God and not even as prophet of God.
Perhaps Jews paramount reason for not caring about Jesus was because of Jesus’ pronouncements that they adhere to the Mosaic Law and that his mission was only to find the missing Tribes of Israel whereupon they realized right then that as eternal life lies in following the Mosaic Law THEY DID NOT NEED JESUS.

5. Whereas the Gospels portray Jesus as being single Allāh says: “And certainly We sent messengers before thee (Mohammad) and appointed for them wives and children;” and Allāh names Jesus among eighteen prophets as having fathers and children–(Qur’an 13:38; 6:84-87).
According to a recent newspaper report, a 4thcentury 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.””A
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 seems simple. If Jesus had a wife and chil-dren and as Christians say Jesus is “Son of God” it would mean God has a daughter-in-law and grandchildren and even great grand-children and other greats as we move down the trail ofdescendants; it would also mean since these descendants would be of “Divinity” as their father they would have power to perform miracles –if Jesus’ followers could perform miracles (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. They would be able to save the cash flow of the world’s ‘drinkers’ by turning mega loads of water into wine –though this might terribly upset and put the ‘spirit’ czars out of business (they may have to hook fish or fork potato banks for a living; or become “loafers”).
These “heavenly” children would 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, hospitals, undertakers, grave-diggers, 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 fore-seen 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.”B 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. Iram seemed un-heard 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: “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”C
It took mankind two thousand years to discover the Qur’anic truths that the body of Ramses was preserved for future generations, and some four thousand years to discover the existence of the city of Iram (and scientific truths noted in the Qur’an).
Whether the papyrus fragment is genuine or not, the words of Allāh enshrined in His Qur’an are true. Jesus had a “wife.”
