So David would ask this question Give me one unequivocal statement that states that the gospel mark the words, the gospel is corrupt. I repeat this question, give me one unequivocal statement in the Quran that states that the gospel is corrupt. Let me give you the shock. The Quran does not state that the gospel is corrupt. The Quran does not say that the gospel is corrupted or changed or altered. The Quran states that the New Testament is corrupt, and the gospel is not the New Testament. The gospel of Jesus Christ is not the New Testament. What gospel is the Quran talking about is the question. What is the Koran talking about? The Quran is talking about the gospel of

00:00:54--> 00:01:41

Jesus Christ, the actual text, which was revealed upon Jesus Christ, where is it? Is the question is the Quran talking about the writings of Paul? Is the Quran talking about the writings of Jude? James, or the book of Acts, for example, is not going on talking about these books when the Quran uses the word gospel? Of course not. The Koran doesn't even address these writings, because these writings even the Christians believe or not from Jesus Christ, let alone from God Almighty. So it is very, very clear that our interlocutors, in this case, David Wood and CO, are being very, very disingenuous to the Christian community. They are not honest with you, they will they're not telling

00:01:41--> 00:02:25

you the truth about the fact of the matter. And they do not respect you, let alone love you. They do not have any respect for the Christians, because they are deliberately lying to the Christian community. It is very unfortunate that so many 1000s of Christians out there have to listen to these lies, the Koran when it talks about the gospel, it is talking about the gospel of Jesus Christ, where does it does it exist today? Does anyone have that gospel? Let me answer the question. Yes, we have remnants of that gospel, and the four gospels written by allegedly Matthew, Mark, Luke and john. Okay, there are remnants and the Koran alludes to those remnants. The Quran points to those

00:02:25--> 00:03:13

true passages that actually truly belonged to the gospel of Jesus Christ once upon a time. The Quran tells the Muslims to believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which was originally revealed upon him. The Quran commands the Muslims to believe in the Torah, which was originally revealed upon Moses in the New Testament, the Torah, or is the Old Testament, the Torah, no, all those verses describing the genocides and all the misdeeds of the prophets are not from the Torah. For example, we do not believe that lot, slept with his daughters. We do not believe that Judah had incest with his daughter in law. We do not believe that David was an immoral man. We do not believe that Moses would

00:03:13--> 00:04:02

command the killing of innocent women and children. We do not believe that prophets like Samuel would do anything like that. For example, in the first book of Samuel, chapter 15, verse three, there is an indication of a genocide there is a command to commit genocide we do not believe these are parts of God's revelation, let alone the Torah. So the Torah of Moses once upon a time existed, and the Quran confirms some of those parts in the Quranic text itself. So when the Quran talks about the Torah and the Gospel, the Quran is talking about the original Torah of Moses, which does not exist anymore. And the Quran talks about do regional gospel, which does not exist in its entirety.

00:04:02--> 00:04:21

Does it exist in part? Absolutely. We as Muslims believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ has survived in documents that can be seen today. For example, the New Testament, we believe there are remnants of the gospel, the original gospel of Jesus Christ,

00:04:23--> 00:05:00

to be found in the text of the New Testament. In fact, in the four gospels, there are remnants, for example, and chapter five of the Koran, same chapter, we are told that Jesus said to the Israelites were called on mercy who Yamani Sri Aurobindo la hora de vara baucom all the children of Israel worship one Lord your God and my God, this is amazing. This is amazing way it was the said in the Gospel Mark, chapter 12. Verse 29, clearly confirms this. So the Quran is simply alluding to the fact that that particular portion in the Gospel of Mark is definitely from God.

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Do you know gospel of Jesus Christ, not all of the Gospel of Mark that particular passage has been confirmed. So the Quran also confirmed that Jesus was sent to the Israelites. The gospels also confirmed that the book of Matthew chapter 15, verse 24, states that Jesus said I was not sent to anyone but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. This is clearly confirmed in the Quran. That was definitely said by Jesus Christ, we have no doubt that that statement was made by Jesus Christ in some shape or form in his own language. Also, the Quran confirms that Jesus Christ was sent to confirm the previous law. And again, the Gospel of Matthew clarifies when the man came asking him

00:05:40--> 00:06:21

questions. When a man came asking Jesus Christ, what shall he do to attain salvation? Jesus said, Follow the commandments follow the commandments. We firmly believe that Jesus Christ had said that in some shape or form. So the Quran actually confirms those remnants of the original gospel of Jesus Christ in the current text of the New Testament. Not that all the text of the New Testament is authentic, authoritative, and the rest. So it is now very clear that the Christian missionaries will present the interpretation of the reinterpretation of the reinterpretation is ignoring all our scholarship or our views. This is exactly what I have told you. What I have explained to you is the

00:06:21--> 00:06:35

view of the Muslim scholarship, modern and classical and ancient. So they goes David Boyd's defense of the current Bible or the text of the New Testament from there it goes, it is gone.
