Why is it that “Jesus” can be used as a curse word? They can make movies like D’Vinci Code and Jesus Christ Superstar and we never see riots. Yet, one cartoon or video degenerating Islam and its violence and killing. Maybe it is because Christianity is centered on a man who was beaten, slapped, dragged, nailed, pierced and responded, “Father, forgive them.” Thank God He never said, “Father, kill them…”
I believe that there should be genuine discourse and we should seek the truth and not insult each other’s religion.
However, have Muslims offended Christians when they claimed that Jesus was not crucified?
Interestingly, Roman, Historical sources, Jewish sources, Josephus, Gaius and every other historical record marks Jesus’ crucifixion. All of the known evidence supports and corroborates the crucifixion.
Are Muslims claiming the Bible is flawed? Are they claiming the Holy Bible is flawed? I wonder what will happen if Christians claim that the Quran is flawed?
The Quran, chapter 4:157 says:
“They declared ‘We have put to death the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the apostle of God’. They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but they had only his likeness.”
And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. And sitting down they watched him there; And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
