Answering Islam

Did Jesus die on the cross? Yes! The most ancient text of scripture that the Greek came from was the Aramaic text. The four Gospels were first written in the language of the people, then translated into Greek. Many scholars do not accept this, however text are clarified when we understand this fact. Matthew 27:46 says in the Aramaic text “And about the ninth hour, Eshu {Yeshua} cried out in a qala rama {a loud voice}, and said, “Iyl! Iyl! Lamana Shabaqthani {My God! My God! Why have you spared Me}!?” What could this have meant? But if we read on it says in verse 50 it says “Then He, Eshu {Yeshua}, again cried out with a loud voice and gave up His spirit.” So Jesus died on the cross as he said. Acts gives us a clue of what this means “why have you spared me? Acts 2:22-33 says “Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance. Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.” Jesus was not left in hell. He is the only one who is called the first begotten of the dead: Revelation 1:5 says “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,“ It is he who was declared the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Acts 13:33-37 says “God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David. Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.” It is Jesus who was not left in Sheol, but was resurrected for us!! We break the chains and we lift the veil off of the eyes of Muslims around the world so they can see the truth once and for all! Jesus loves you with an everlasting love. He’s waiting for you! John 1:1 of the Aramaic says “In the beginning there was The Miltha {The Word}, and He, The Miltha {The Word}, was with Alaha {God}. And Alaha {God} Himself was The Miltha {The Word}.”
