One of the most contested issues between Christianity and Islam is the crucifixion. The death of Jesus on the cross is taken by Christians as an almost indisputable fact of history. Yet, the Quran makes the bold claim that Jesus was not crucified. In this video, we are going to see that the Quran has a remarkable insight into biblical prophecy, which proves that the Messiah was saved by God.

00:00:38--> 00:01:10

The New Testament reports the following encounter between Jesus and Satan. Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. If you are the Son of God, he said, throw yourself down for it is written, he will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against the stone. Jesus answered him, it is also written, do not put the Lord your God to the test.

00:01:11--> 00:01:28

Here, Satan tested Jesus with a diabolical challenge. biblical prophecy foretold that angels will protect you. So prove it right by throwing yourself from a great height. Now notice the response of Jesus. He does not accuse Satan of twisting scripture.

00:01:29--> 00:01:35

Rather, he says it is also written, which is an affirmation that the prophecy is indeed about him.

00:01:36--> 00:01:41

Christian Bible commentaries confirm that the quarters prophecy is messianic.

00:01:42--> 00:02:07

For example, the Jemison faucet and brown commentary states, Jesus said unto him, it is written again, as if he should say true, it is so written. And on that promise, I implicitly rely on the pulpit commentary states, the devil, appealing to Jesus's consciousness of abiding communion with God bids him enjoy to the full promise of God's protection.

00:02:08--> 00:02:20

JOHN Calvin's commentary states, Satan is not wrong in proving from this passage that angels have been given to Christ, to wait on Him, to guard him and to bear him on their hands.

00:02:22--> 00:02:28

Let's now take a closer look at the prophecy applied to Jesus. It's quoted from the Old Testament book of Psalms.

00:02:30--> 00:02:53

No harm will overtake you know disaster will come near your tent, for he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. They will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against the stone. Because he loves me says the Lord. I will rescue him, I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

00:02:54--> 00:03:00

He will call on me and I will answer him, I will be with him in trouble. And I will deliver him and honor him.

00:03:01--> 00:03:05

With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.

00:03:07--> 00:03:13

We can see that this prophecy in Psalm 91 mentions that Jesus will not be harmed

00:03:15--> 00:03:29

that the angels will guide him and that God will rescue and deliver him. Now, this is where the prophecy gets even more interesting. We actually find the Hebrew name of Jesus Yeshua is the very last word in the prophecy.

00:03:31--> 00:03:47

The Hebrew word Yeshua means salvation. So not only does this prophecy explicitly foretell a saved Messiah, it even foreshadowed his very name Yeshua. It is clear that any claims of a crucified Jesus completely contradict this prophecy.

00:03:51--> 00:04:04

St. Augustine, an early church father and one of the greatest church theologians in history, discuss Psalm 91 in depth. Augustine fully acknowledged that the mention of the angels lifting up was in reference to Jesus.

00:04:06--> 00:04:30

But when it came to those portions of the prophecy that are problematic from a Christian perspective, such as the mention of being rescued and protected, Augusten arbitrarily switched his interpretation to the church, ie the entire body of Christians. This is despite the fact that the entire prophecy is addressing a single person, which is demonstrated by its consistent use of pronouns in a singular, such as you he and him.

00:04:31--> 00:04:43

This goes to show that even Church Fathers struggled when it came to reconciling Psalm 91. With the New Testament claims of a crucified Jesus. This is why they had to resort to twisting the prophecy.

00:04:49--> 00:04:53

This is what the Quran says about the crucifixion Go on, but then

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

move on.

00:05:23--> 00:05:31

the Quran is crystal clear. Jesus was saved from the crucifixion, being raised up to God, alive and unharmed.

00:05:33--> 00:05:57

These verses show remarkable insight, and we analyzed them in detail. The krons claim that Jesus was saved by being raised up perfectly mirrors the prophecy in Psalm 91, which foretold that Jesus would be saved by being lifted up by angels, we can see that what the Quran reports about Jesus is, in fact, the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy that the Messiah would not be harmed.

00:06:02--> 00:06:27

The foundation of Christianity is the crucifixion for the Quran to come along nearly 600 years later and challenge it is quite bold. Let's consider this from a psychological perspective. If Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him, was a false prophet, then he would have just gone along with New Testament claims that Jesus was crucified. This would have made it easier for Christians to convert to Islam, so there would have been a lot again.

00:06:29--> 00:06:33

But Islam is not about what is convenient. It's about the truth.

00:06:34--> 00:07:17

The implications of the Crown's position are far reaching and actually go beyond Islam. One of the reasons that Jewish people reject Jesus is because of the crucifixion. They know that their Messiah cannot be crucified based on Old Testament prophecies that we have seen. The Messiah is supposed to be someone who will be victorious. So any claim that he was whipped, tortured and died in humiliation is a contradiction. So the New Testament claims that Jesus died ironically justifies the Jewish rejection of him. cron removes this stumbling block of a crucified Messiah and paves the way for the Jewish people to accept Jesus. Many have criticized the Quran and its audacity in

00:07:17--> 00:07:43

challenging the New Testament crucifixion narrative. We have seen that it is in fact the New Testament accounts written by anonymous authors decades after Jesus which claimed that Jesus was crucified a complete contradiction of Old Testament prophecy that the Messiah would be saved from death. these prophecies are a vindication of the Crown's position and proof of his tremendous insight into the actual life and mission of the Messiah.
