Younus AlGohar explains the reason that Jesus was opposed in his era and why the Quran and Bible seem to differ in this important speech.
– Regarding the crucifixion, there is nothing in the Bible because the Bible was revealed before the crucifixion. What is said in the Quran is not clear. The Quran says that Jesus was not crucified, nor was he killed. Rather, God ascended him towards himself and left something as a doubt for people who witnessed the crucifixion. If the Quran had been more clear on this matter, it would have been better.
– Christians has used some of the things Jesus said to spread misguidance. Jesus said that there would come many false prophets. It has been 20 years since Jesus returned to the world but he has not made himself known to the common public. Some time ago, a sub-spirit of Jesus was seen healing people in a hospital in Cherry Hill, USA. One day someone asked the sub-spirit of Jesus, ‘Are you Jesus?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ They proceeded to beat him. This is the current state of humanity. Before, it was the enemies of Jesus who tried to hurt him; now it is those who claim to be his followers.
– The Romans, who were ruling there at the time, were the ones who were cruel to Jesus. But Romans were worldly people; they weren’t religious. It was the Jewish clerics that pushed the Romans against Jesus. They told the Romans that Jesus called himself the Messiah. The Romans thought that the Messiah would come and topple their kingdom; the Jewish scholars hit them where it hurt. When asked whether he was the Messiah, Jesus said, ‘Ask the one who sent me.’ The Romans weren’t even prepared to crucify Jesus; at the last minute, he was meant to replace a man sentenced to crucifixion.
– Some time after Moses’s grave was established, prostitutes made it a hotspot for their activities. Due to indecent acts being performed by his grave, God raised up his spirits which were still in the grave. When Muslims started to plan to degrade Prophet Mohammad’s grave, God raised up his spirits from that grave too. It was not for established graves that Prophet Mohammad warned his followers not to make; rather he told them not to make idols of him. This was before nations of prophets before him had started to worship their prophets. God is upset with those Jews who made Abraham’s idols and put them in the Kaaba; it was for such Jews that God said, ‘Don’t make them your friends.’ Otherwise God in the Quran declared that true Jews will definitely enter paradise.
– John the Baptist was the son of Zachariah. He would always cry in fear of doing something to upset God. One type of tears is done in repentance; this washes your sins. Tears in fear of upsetting God are known as tears of piety; these tears wash the sins of the nation. When people would come to John the Baptist asking for his help getting their sins forgiven, he would splash them with his tears of piety. This is how their sins would be forgiven and this was true baptism. When Jesus came for baptism, John the Baptist, instead of baptising Jesus, asked Jesus for his blessings. Jesus is a Messenger and innocent of all sins in God’s eyes. This confused people.
– The Jews in that era were bothered by Jesus because Jesus stopped them from punishing people according to the religious law decreed by Moses and Abraham. Regarding their worship places, Jesus told them that there were foolish to look for God in a building they made with their own hands; rather he directed them to their heart as the House of God. They saw Jesus as a blasphemer of Abraham and Moses. When they saw Jesus’s miraculous powers, the Jewish scholars on their own alleged that Jesus claimed to be the Messiah. It was after this that the Romans tried to crucify Jesus. It is another thing that Jesus wasn’t crucified; rather God raised him towards himself. In his place, a sub-spirit of his Nafs (Carnal Self), which was his lookalike, was placed there to be crucified.
