HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY AND PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAL) IN THE BIBLE.
Christianity is a semitic religion and the term "Christian" is taken from the word Christ. The sacred scripture of Christianity is the Bible. The word bible is derived from the Greek word "Biblos" which means book of books.True to its name, the bible has many authors and the first fundamental criticism starts from here. The bible is devided in to two parts namely, the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old testament is accepted by the Jews as the Torah and comprises the the records of all the prophets that came before Jesus Christ (P.B.U.H).
INAUTHENTICITY OF THE BIBLE.
The language spoken by Jesus Christ (P.B.U.H) was Aramaic but the bible was originally written in Greek (The old testamnet was in Hebrew). the true author of the bible is unknown. Under the order of emperor constantine the Ecumenical Council of Nicea was called with the participation of many Christian theologians in 325 A.C. The perpose was to examine and determine the authenticity of the books in the bible. It was decided that epistle of Jude was genuine and all the other books were declared doubtful. This was mentioned by Jerome the 1st in his prologue to Judith in his Vulgate version of the Bible in the 'Biblica Sacra Iuxta Vulgatam Versionem".
There is no certainty in the Bible among the Catholic and the Protestants. The entire Bible's authenticity is based on assumptions and conjectures and their is no order with an uninterrupted change of narrators. The protestant accept only 66 books of the Bible in contrast to the 73 books of the Catholics. The old testament or in other words the Torah is believed to be the words of Moses but its not authentic because the script of the old testament was found by a priest by the name of Hilkaih 18 years after Josiah's ascention to the throne. The other point is the old testament was destroyed completely in the invasion of Jerusalem by Nebuchdnazzar and there is no evidence of these books existing after this invasion. The second book of Edras 14:19-48, mentions this with detail although the protestants deny this completely. But the book of Nehemiah accepted also by the protestants mentions that the Pentateuch was destroyed and the prophet Ezra wrote and read it to the people. But this story of Ezra writing it is doubtful and cannot be accepted because of the contradictions. Rahmatullah Khairanvi's " Izhar ul haq" Page number 16 highlihts these contradictions as follows,
"It is an accepted notion of all Jewish and Christian scholars that the First and Second books of Chronicles were rewritten by Ezra with help of the Prophets Haggai and Zechariah, but we note that the seventh and eighth chapters of this book consist of descriptions of the descendants of Benjamin which are mutually contradictory. These descriptions also contradict statements in the Pentateuch, firstly in the names, and secondly in counting the number of the descendants. In chapter 7 we read that Benjamin had three sons 7 and in chapter 8 we find that he had five 8 sons while the Pentateuch claims that he had ten sons . Both the Christian and the Jewish scholars are unanimous on the point that the statement made by the First Book of Chronicles is erroneous, and they have justified this error by saying that the Prophet Ezra could not distinguish and separate the sons from the grandsons, because the genealogical tables from which he had quoted were defective and incomplete. It is true that three prophets (who wrote the Pentateuch) were necessarily sincere followers of the Pentateuch. Now if we assume that the Pentateuch of Moses was the same one written by these Prophets, it seems quite illogical that they should deviate and or make mistakes in the divine book, neither was it possible that Ezra would have wrongly trusted an incomplete and defective table of genealogy in a matter of such importance. Had the Pentateuch written by Ezra been the same famous Pentateuch, they would have not deviated from it. These evidences lead us to believe that the present Pentateuch was neither the one revealed to Moses and written down by him nor the one written by Ezra by inspiration. In fact, it is a collection of stories and traditions which were current among the Jews, and written down by their scholars without a critical view to their authorities. Their claim that three prophets committed mistakes in copying the names and number of the sons of Benjamin leads us to another obvious conclusion that, according to the Christians, the prophets are not protected from wrong action and can be involved in committing major sins , similarly they can make mistakes in writing or preaching the holy books".
The same could be said on the new testament as well. The new testament mainly comprises of the gospels of Matthew,Mark,Luke and John. Lets analyze who these authors are because the bible forbids innovation.
"Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you".
The gospel of Matthew is thought to have been authored by Matthew but there is no evidence to prove this. The New American Bible states,
"The unknown author, whom we shall continue to call Matthew for the sake of convenience, drew no only up the Gospel according to Mark but upon a large body of material (principally, sayings of Jesus) not found in Mk that corresponds, sometimes exactly, to material found also in the Gospel according to Luke. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1008)"
The gospel of Mark is thought to have been authored by mark but this is not certain and in the commentary of Mark 16:9-20:
The following is mentioned.
"Serious doubts exists as to whether these verses belong to the Gospel of Mark. They are absent from important early manuscripts and display certain peculiarities of vocabulary, style and theological content that are unlike the rest of Mark. His Gospel probably ended at 16:8, or its original ending has been lost. (From the NIV Bible Foot Notes , page 1528)"
There unacceptable lies to be seen. One is in the below vers of the gospel of Matthew ,
"And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover"
The above is accepted as a forged lie attributed to Mark .This is a challenge to the christians if they are that faithful belivers then why don't they drink poison and see for themselves and why don't they go to any hospital and treat the sick and cure any sick person no matter what illness they have by just touching them? If the above verse is true then there won't be a need for doctors and all you will need is a bunch of faithful christian believers who only needing to touch a patient and then they'll be cured.
Luke is accepted as the author of the gospel of Luke is based on a peculation. This is just a speculation and cannot be proven as a fact. This speculation explained below in the NIV Bible commentary.
"Although the author does not name himself, evidence outside the Scriptures and inferences from the book itself lead to the conclusion that the author was Luke. (From the NIV Bible Commentary , page 1643)"
The gospel of John is another gospel without an author. Its like a child without a mother. The authorship is unknown and like all the other three gospels there is no concrete evidence to prove the authorship. The New American Bible puts it this way.
"Critical Analysis makes it difficult to accept the idea that the gospel as it now stands was written by one person. (The New American Bible, ISBN: 978-0-529-06484-4, Page 1136)"
It is clear that the Bible as a whole is not at all authentic and the authorship are based only on mere speculation.
WHO WAS PAUL ?
It is proven from the bible that Paul was a liar. The Christians claim that Paul met Jesus hence making him a person who was divinely revealed. Let us analyze this story and know the truth that Paul never met Jesus.
The entire story of Paul seeing the voice of jesus is not true because there are many contradictions. Paul meeting Jesus fr the first time is mentioned in the bible as follows :
And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man"
(Acts 9: 1-7)
As mentioned above, Paul is on a journey, he then sees a light and hears a voice, this voice is supposedly Jesus. Paul then asks Jesus what do you want me to do? The response by Jesus is for Paul to go to the city and it will be made known to him over there. Now this is what's said in another place.
" Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me"
(Acts 26: 12-18: 12)
In the first account all Jesus tells him is go to the city to find out what you must do, in this account in Acts 22 we see Jesus already telling Paul what he meant to do! So which one is it? Will Paul know what his purpose is in the city? Or did he already know? the account version of Acts 22: 5-10, there is no mention of Jesus telling Paul all this information: This account agrees with the version of Acts 9, Acts 26 is the only different one in this case, Acts 26 contradicts Acts 9 and 22. It is very easy to notice the contradiction, in Acts 9 and 22, Jesus tells Paul that he will know what to do in the city, in Acts 26 Jesus already tells Paul what he will do and mentions nothing about going to a city to find out. So which one is it?
In Acts 9: 1-7, There is another story.
" And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man"
In Acts verse 7 says that the men who accompanied Paul heard a voice, but saw no man, they did not see anyone.. Now let us compare this with Acts 22 5-9:
" As also the high priest doth bear me witness, and all the estate of the elders: from whom also I received letters unto the brethren, and went to Damascus, to bring them which were there bound unto Jerusalem, for to be punished. And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me. And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest. And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that was speaking to me. So now as you can see, in Acts 22 Paul says the man saw a light, but heard no voice! In Acts 9 Paul says the men so no man, but heard a voice. The obvious contradiction is there for all to see, there is no denying it. So this piece of information also throws doubt into the entire episode, it shows that this story is not credible at all. If this whole story was put before a modern day judge, the entire story would have been rejected as a lie.
THE PROPHET (SAL) PROPHESIZED IN THE BIBLE
God spoke to Moses and said:
"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him."
The Christians will argue that this prophecy refers to Jesus (P.B.U.H) because Jesus was a jew like Moses and was a prophet and was like Moses. This argument is wrong because prophets who came after Moses like Solomon,Isaiah,Ezekiel,Daniel,John the Baptist and others are all Jews as well as prophets.
If you analyze the Bible carefully you will understand that it was prophet Muhammad (sal) who was like Moses.
1. Both Moses and Muhammad (sal) had a father and mother while Jesus was born miraculously. This is highlighted in the Bible Mathew 1:18 and Luke 1:35 and also mentioned in the Qur'an, Surah 3, Verses 42-47.
2. Bothe prophet Moses (P.B.U.H) and Prophet Muhammad (sal) got married and had children while Jesus did not get married and did not have children,
3. Both Moses (P.B.U.H) and Prophet (sal) died natural deaths while Jesus (P.B.U.H) was raised up by Allah Azza Wa Jal. Muhammad (sal) was among the brethren of Moses (P.B.U.H) because the Arabs came from Ismael while the Jews came from Isaac. Both Ismael (P.B.U.H) and Isaac (P.B.U.H) came from one father , prophet Ibrahim (P.B.U.H).
The prophet (sal) an "ummi" (unlettered). He got direct revelation from Allah through Gibreel (alahissalam(Gabriel)and he repeated them. This is how this prophecy is told in the bible.
"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him."
Apart from this, both Moses (P.B.U.H) and Muhammad (sal) brought laws for their people while Jesus (P.B.U.H) did not bring any new laws as mentioned in the below verse in the bible
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished"
Prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him's name is there in the Bible.
Apart from the many prophesies in the Bible about the prophet (sal), The name "Muhammad" can be found in the Bible as well. In hebrew it says:
""Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem."
("His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters
(Solomon chapter 5:16)
The Christians reject this by bringing a false argument stating that this is Solomons's wife describing her husband but this is a total lie because the wife of Solomon says that she was beaten up by her guards
The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.
(Solomon chapter 5:7)
Why should she be beaten if she wanted to see her husband who is king Solomon which makes no sense and is a lie to cover up the truth. The truth is she was longing to meet the messenger of Allah peace be upon him and she mentioned it by name.
THE TRINITY MYTH-WAS JESUS SON OF GOD?
There is no evidence to prove from the Bible that Jesus is the son of god or that he was crucified. Jesus never proved divinity in the bible and there is no unequal or unambiguous statement in the bible which says that Jesus Christ (P.B.U.H) claimed to be God or to worship him. Now the argument the Christians use to prove that Jesus Christ is god is from the below verses. let us examine them.
1. First Argument
" I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty"
Now in the above verse Jesus Christ says that he is the alpha and omega meaning he is the first and the last and this is interpreted as an opinion by Christians to mean that Jesus claimed divinity. Now what does the meaning first and last mean? If it it means according to the Christians that alpha and omega means that Jesus was the first in the world then this itself is a lie because Jesus Christ was born in the stable and before him there were many prophets that came before him. Now the word Omega which means "Last" also does not fit Jesus Christ (P.B.U.H) because it is mentioned in the bible very clearly that there will be another prophet and it will be the prophet Muhammad (sal). Jesus says in the bible regarding this:
"I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come"
So the Alpha and omega thought by the Christians is not what it means. The gospel of John is accepted by all the main Christian theologians to be false. The book of revelations was omitted as a lie by the Syrian versions and the Arabian churches also rejected the episle of John. Horne says in the second volume of his commentary (1822) on pages 206 and 207 as mentioned in Izar Ul Haq by Rahmatullah Khairanvi, Page-35,
“The following Epistles and verses have not been included in the Syrian version and the same was the case with Arabian churches; the second Epistle of Peter, the Epistle of Jude, both the epistles of John, the Revelation, the verses from 2-11 of chapter 8 in the gospel of John, and chapter 5 verse 7 of the first Epistle of John. The translator of the Syrian version omitted these verses because he did not believe them to be genuine. Ward confirms this in this book (1841) on page 37: “Rogers, a great scholar of the Protestant faith has mentioned the name of a number of Protestant scholars who declared the following books as false and excluded them from the holy scriptures: the Epistles to the Hebrews, the Epistle of Jacob, the second and the third Epistles of John, and the Revelation.”
2. Second Argument.
"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me".
Now the Christians will try to say that from the above verse what it means is that Jesus is the god incarnate. Before answering this question, let me repeat to my readers that there is no single unequal or unambiguous statement in the bible which says that Jesus Christ (P.B.U.H) claimed to be God or to worship him. If you read the entire story then there is a different Picture to this.
Let us see what the whole chapter of John has to say.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
So, from the above verses it is very clear that what Jesus said was if you want to understand God, then you'll have to understand it through me meaning in other words that Jesus is only a messenger. The whole argument that Jesus is God almighty oi nothing short of a lie and a myth. The other lie is the argument that Jesus is referred as God in the bible.
"Why do you call it blasphemy when I say, 'I am the Son of God'? After all, the Father set me apart and sent me into the world"
If you analyze the bible carefully there are ons in the tons. Jesus (P.B.U.H) is not the only person called as son of god in the bible even Moses was also called "The God" (Exodus 7:1) and the people are also called sons of God .
"All Believers were called "GODS and Sons of GOD"
Son of God" in ancient times meant no more than a righteous Servant and Chosen one of GOD Almighty. It is quite unfortunate that in the old Jewish culture, people used to be named "Godly" names. This is quite misleading and deceiving to Christians when they try to define the deity of Jesus. Psalm 82:6 "I said, 'You are "gods" (Elohim; plural to El); you are all sons of the Most High.' " "gods" here in Hebrew is "Elohim", which is plural of "EL". It is the same exact thing as "EL" used for Jesus in Isaiah 9:6, since "gods" is a combination of several "EL"s.
Was Jesus Crucified?
Among the fundamental beliefs of the Christians is that Jesus Christ dies in the cross for the sins of man. Let us analyze the facts and see how much the Christians have been deceived by their church
Willingness of Jesus Christ to Die for Our Sins Peter and the two sons of Zebedee were with Jesus Christ before the elders of the people and the chief priests came to take him to crucify him. Jesus at this point talked to Peter and the two sons of Zebedee in this verse.
"Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me."
Then Jesus went a little further way from them and prayed to God as in the following verse
"And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as "
from the above verse it is clear that Jesus had no intention of dying. In this verse it is shown that Jesus was praying strongly (Matthew mentions that Jesus repeated these prayer three times) to have this death removed from him. Had Jesus Christ been sent to be crucified he would not have hesitated to be killed at all. Some Christians may argue that this means the flesh and that his soul which is godly does not have this hesitation at all but in Matthew 26:38 we see that Jesus is contradicting this idea by saying,
"My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death."
He himself says that it really his soul that is hesitating and not his body.
After Jesus made the above mentioned prayer he was answered by God as mentioned below.
"Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared."
These words clearly show that when Jesus was praying strongly to God, God would grant him his request. The word "heard in that he feared" (Hebrews 5:7) mean that God granted him what he requested. So the above verse shows that when Jesus asked of God as in the below verse
"let this cup pass .from"
(Matthew 26:39) him,
From this verse, God responded to his prayer and saved him from crucifixion. The other factor that needs to be understood is that post Crucifixion event never happened. Lets take a look. When the people were asking Jesus Christ if he was going to show them a sign, He replied by saying that the only sign that they should expect is the sign of Jonas. Jesus also made sure to specify :what exactly this sign was. The details are shown in the following verses.
"Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we .would see a sign from thee Matthew But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh :after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the .Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth"
Jesus here emphasized what will happen to him by specifically saying that he will be like Jonas in terms of the number of days and nights he will be in the heart of the earth. Now let us see if this prophecy came to pass Jesus was crucified on Friday, this is certainly known among all Christians, and that is the reason for calling that Friday by "Good Friday". Jesus was buried on Friday night. Now let us start :counting .Friday night Jesus was buried. This is night number 1.1 .Saturday day Jesus was still in the grave. This is day number 1.2 .Saturday night Jesus was still in the grave. This is night number 2.3.
"When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb 3 and they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?” But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene,who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him".
The number of days and nights that Jesus had spent in the heart of the earth is 1 day and 2 nights. This clearly challenges what Jesus had prophesied. According to Christianity, Jesus died on the cross as a sacrifice for man's sins. The idea here is that every human is born with sins, or that all humans will sin, and therefore it was necessary that someone as pure as Jesus would be the crucified to nullify these sins. The question is; why does anyone have to die for our sins when God, the All-Merciful, could as easily give us forgiveness if we ask for it? Isn't God the one who makes the rules? Why does He have to make someone suffer for our sins or for someone else's sins? Isn't that unjust of Him? According to the Bible the way to :redemption could be obtained without the need for sacrifice.First ible says in the following verses.
"The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them".
"But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die".
Clearly the soul that sins shall die. Clearly that no one shall bear the iniquity (sins) of others. So Jesus cannot bear the sins of others either. If one is righteous then it shall be upon him, and if one commits a sin then it shall be upon him, and not on Jesus. Finally, the way to repentance and .forgiveness is by turning from all sins, doing what is right, and keeping the commandments Further in the bible it says
"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 I will forgive their sin and will heal their land".
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
This verse clearly states that if you humble yourself and pray to God and turn away from wickedness, you will be forgiven.
Further, the below verses also says that there is not need of sacrifice to wash away sins. "So Samuel said:
“Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams".
(1 Samuel 15:22)
This verse in Samuel clearly states obeying god is better than sacrifice. The Christian might try to discount these verses by stating that it was from the earlier prophets. But Jesus said clearly that he has not come to change anything.
"Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil."
From this verse nothing stated above cannot be discounted. And further,
For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
When Mary magdalene tried to touch Jesus he said very clearly
As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!” 37 But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. 38 And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40 And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they still disbelieved for joy and were marveling, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?”And they gave him a piece of boiled fish and of a honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them."
From the above verses it is very clear that Jesus was not ded because a dead body won't ask for food. The Christian apologetic might argue by quoting the following verse to say that Jesus died and resurrected.
He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you:Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”
"Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things".
In the above verse Jesus says that it is mentioned is in the law of Moses,the prophets and the psalms or in other words the old testament. There is no evidence whatsoever where it is said that Jesus will be killed and be resurrected. The second point is that the gospel of Luke is clearly not authentic as explained by me earlier in this article. There is ample evidence from the bible to prove that Jesus was saved from being killed. Take a look at the below verse.
"For the Scriptures say,
‘He will order his angels to protect and guard you. And they will hold you up with their hands
so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.”
Jesus responded, “The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.
CONTRADICTIONS AND SCIENTIFIC ERRORS IN THE BIBLE.
The bible is pregnant with contradictions and still it is being held blindly as god's word by many Christians.
1. Who incited David to count the fighting men of Israel was it God or Satan?
"Again the anger of the LORD burned against Israel, and he incited David against them, saying, "Go and take a census of Israel and Judah."
(2 Samuel 24: 1)
"Satan rose up against Israel and incited David to take a census of Israel
(I Chronicles 2 1:1)
2. How many fighting men were found in Judah? Five hundred thousand or Four hundred and seventy thousand?
" Joab reported the number of the fighting men to the king: In Israel there were eight hundred thousand able-bodied men who could handle a sword, and in Judah five hundred thousand".
(2 Samuel 24:9)
"Joab reported the number of the fighting men to David: In all Israel there were one million one hundred thousand men who could handle a sword, including four hundred and seventy thousand in Judah.
(I Chronicles 21:5).
3. God sent his prophet to threaten David with how many years of famine? Was it Seven years or Three years?
"Three years of famine, three months of being swept away before your enemies, with their swords overtaking you, or three days of the sword of the LORD--days of plague in the land, with the angel of the LORD ravaging every part of Israel.' Now then, decide how I should answer the one who sent me."
(I Chronicles 21:12)
"So Gad came to David and told him, and said to him, "Shall seven years of famine come to you in your land? Or will you flee three months before your foes while they pursue you? Or shall there be three days' pestilence in your land? Now consider and see what answer I shall return to Him who sent me."

1. Purify one's house by sprinkling seven times with birds blood.
"“But if the priest comes to examine it and the mold has not spread after the house has been plastered, he shall pronounce the house clean,because the defiling mold is gone. 49 To purify the house he is to take two birds and some cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop. 50 He shall kill one of the birds over fresh water in a clay pot. 51 Then he is to take the cedar wood, the hyssop, the scarlet yarn and the live bird, dip them into the blood of the dead bird and the fresh water, and sprinkle the house seven times. 52 He shall purify the house with the bird’s blood, the fresh water, the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop and the scarlet yarn.53 Then he is to release the live bird in the open fields outside the town. In this way he will make atonement for the house, and it will be clean.”
( Leviticus 14: 48-53)
It is well known that blood is not a disinfectant rather it is the opposite. Blood attracts germs quickly and could cause diseases.
2 .Proverbs 6:6-8, ants have no commander, no ruler and no overseer.
'Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest".
This is not true because ants live in colonies and ranks of rulership and authority. And they have a queen..
3. In Leviticus 11:20-23, it says.
"All flying insects that walk on all fours are to be detestable to you." No insect with four legs exists. Insects have six legs and six feet.
Leviticus 11:6 , says
"The rabbit, though it chews the cud, does not have a split hoof; it is unclean for you." Rabbits, are Lagomorphs, not ruminants; they do not chew the cud.
4. The earth is flat, has four corners, is standing on pillars that prevent it from shaking, and is immovable.
As mentioned in the verses of 1 Samuel 2:8, Job 9:6, Job 38:4, Isaiah 11:12, Revelation 7:1, Job 38:13, Jeremiah 16:19, Daniel 4:11, Psalm 93:1-3, Psalm 96:10, Psalm 104:5, 1 Chronicles 16:30, Matthew 4:8.
5. John 12:24, says
"I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." This has no scientific basis. The dead seed does not produce new seeds.
6. Leviticus 12:2-5, a female causes double the pollution when she's born than that of a boy.
The mother remains unclean for 66 days after birth of a female instead of 33 days if she gives birth to a male.
“Say to the Israelites: ‘A woman who becomes pregnant and gives birth to a son will be ceremonially unclean for seven days, just As she is unclean during her monthly period. On the eighth day the boy is to be circumcised. Then the woman must wait Thirty-three days to be purified from her bleeding. She must not touch anything sacred or go to the sanctuary until the days of her purification are over. If she gives birth to a daughter, for two weeks the woman will be unclean, as during her period. Then she must wait sixty-six days to be purified from her bleeding.
7. Genesis 1:16, GOD Almighty created two lamps, the sun and the moon, each giving an independent light to earth.
"And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also".
The Hebrew says "two lamps", meaning each giving off its independent light. The moon cannot produce light on its own. It only reflects the suns light.
