Qur’an Quotation from Mario Joseph
“For me God was only Allah, and I believe Allah never married, so no sons for Allah. So I preached that Jesus was not God. Then somebody asked me Who is “Jesus?” – From the crowd. Maybe a Muslim, but he asked me “Who is Jesus?” I was preaching He is not God, but the question was, “who is He?”
To know who is He, I read the entire Koran once again: 114 chapters and 6666 words in the Koran.
When I read it the name of the Prophet Mohammad I found in Koran in 4 places, but the name of Jesus I found in 25 places. There itself, I was a little confused. “Why does the Koran give more preference to Jesus?”
And the second thing, I could not see any women’s name in the Koran: the Prophet Mohammad’s mother’s name; or wife’s name or children’s name, no. In the Koran, there is only the name of 1 woman’s name and that is Mariam, the mother of Jesus. No other woman’s name.
And in the holy Koran chapter 3, the name of the chapter is “Family of Mariam,” and the holy Koran chapter 19, the name of the chapter is “Mariam.” One chapter is “Mariam.”
So, I was very curious to know, “why this Koran says all these things?” About Mariam, holy Koran chapter 3 verses 34 onwards says Mary was born without original sin, she never committed a sin in her life, she was ever a virgin. Koran chapter 50 verse 23 says that she went to Heaven in her physical body. Even the Assumption is written in the holy Koran.
And then about Jesus, when I read chapter 3 verses 45 to 55 verses, there are 10 points which the Koran makes about Jesus.
1- the first thing Koran says, (phrase in Arabic) the Arabic word which means “Word of God,”
2- And the second thing, (phrase in Arabic) which means “Spirit of God.”
3- And the third, (phrase in Arabic) which means “Jesus Christ.” So Koran gives the name of Jesus: “Word of God, Spirit of God, Jesus Christ.”
4- And then Koran says that Jesus spoke when he was very small, like 2-days old after his birth. He began to speak.
5- Koran says that Jesus created a live bird with mud. He took some mud, formed a bird: when he breathed into it, it became a live bird. So I think that he can give life. He gave life to mud, clay.
6- And then Koran says that Jesus cured a man born blind and a man with leprosy, etc.
7- Curiously, the Koran says that Jesus gave life to dead people;
8- Jesus went to Heaven;
9- He is still alive and
10- He will come again.
When I saw all these things in the Koran, my thinking what the Koran says about Mohammad.
You know, according to Koran, Prophet Mohammad, is not the Word of God, not the Spirit of God, never spoke when he was 2 days old, never created a bird with mud, never cured any sick people, never raised any dead people, he himself died and according to Islam he is not alive and he will not come back.
So there is a lot of difference between these two prophets. I don’t call Jesus as God, you know. My idea is that “He is a prophet, but He is a prophet greater than Mohammad.”
So one day, I went to my teacher, the one who taught me 10 years in Arabic College, and I asked him, “Teacher, how did God create the universe?” Then he said, “God created the universe through the word.” THROUGH THE WORD.
Then my question, “Word is creator or creation?” Must clear it. My question, whether the Word of God is Creator or creation?
Koran says Jesus is the Word of God. If my teacher says that Word of God is Creator, which means Jesus is Creator, then the Muslim must become Christian.”
