What Did Jesus Say About Christmas?

The Christmas Experience

The perfect Christmas tree is bought. Adorned with ornaments and glittering with tinsel, it stands by the window. The stores are crammed with shoppers hunting for presents and the little ones anxiously waiting for Santa.

Busy with Christmas fever, wonder did you ever, did the Bible or Jesus made any injunction on Christmas ever?

Ponder upon the following analysis on Christmas, and the Truth will become clearer and clearer.

Does Christmas have Biblical Evidence?

The word ‘Christmas’ does not exist in the Bible. The Bible has closed lips on the entire feast of Christmas, with one exception, the decoration of a tree. The Bible itself criticizes the decoration of the (Christmas) trees:

“The customs of the people are worthless, they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel, they adore it with silver and gold, they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter” (Jeremiah 10-3,4).

European Pre-Christian pagans superstitiously believed that the green trees had special protective powers. In fact the use of the Christmas tree began only in the 17th century in Strasbourg, France and from there it spread to Germany, Britain and then to the U.S. “Tree worship was a common feature of religion among the Teutonic and Scandinavian peoples of northern Europe before their conversion to Christianity…German settlers brought the Christmas tree custom to the American colonies in the 17th century. By the 19th century its use was quite widespread”. (Compton’s Encyclopedia, 1998 Edition)

Son Of Who?

Saturday, April 13th, 2013
q

By – Yusuf Estes

Does the belief in Jesus, peace be upon him, as a ‘son of God’ really make sense?

What exactly does ‘son of God’ mean?

Can true salvation from God, be the punishment of someone else who is innocent from any of these crimes, to be punished as though he were guilty?

Does God need someone to suffer severe punishment, even though they are trying, day after day.

What do Muslims believe about Jesus?

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

 

 

Muslims respect and revere Jesus (peace be upon him) , and await his second coming. They consider him one of the greatest of God’s messengers to mankind…. A Muslim never refers to him simply as `Jesus’, but always adds the phrase “peace be upon him.” The Qur’aan confirms his virgin birth (a chapter of the Qur’aan is entitled `Mary’) in her time, and Mary is considered the purest woman in all creation. The Qur’aan describes the creation of Jesus as follows (interpretation of the meaning):

“Behold! the Angel said, `God has chosen you, and purified you, and chosen you above the women of all nations. O Mary, God gives you glad tidings of a word from Him, whose name shall be the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, honored in this world and the Hereafter, and one that shall speak to the people from his cradle and in maturity, and shall be of the righteous.’ She said: `O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me?’ He said: `Even so; God creates what He wills. When He decrees a thing, He but says to it, “Be!” and it is.” [Quran 3:42-7]

Jesus is fully human

Friday, December 28th, 2012

 

 

Harun Yahya
    
Source: Prophet Jesus : A Prophet, Not A Son Of God

In the Qur’an, God reveals to our Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace) that the other prophets before him were all human:

“We never sent any Messengers before you who did not eat food and walk in the market-place. But We have made some of you a trial for others, to see if you will be steadfast. Your Lord sees everything. Those who do not expect to meet Us ask: ‘Why have angels not been sent down to us? Why do we not see our Lord?’ They have become arrogant about themselves and are excessively insolent.” (Surat al-Furqan: 20-21)

In other verses our Lord states:

“We have only sent before you men who were given Revelation. Ask the People of the Reminder if you do not know. We did not give them bodies that did not eat food, nor were they immortal. But We kept Our promise to them and rescued them and those We willed, and destroyed the profligate.” (Surat al-Anbiya’: 7-9)

All of the prophets’ human characteristics are described in the Qur’an through numerous examples. Mary conceived Prophet Jesus (Peace be upon him) in a miraculous manner. However, the stages of his birth and Mary’s birth-related experiences clearly reveal that his stages of birth were the same as those of all other human beings. It is not possible to interpret the Qur’anic account of his birth in any other way:

Jesus Christ: A Prophet of Islam

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Islam, as the religion that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), is younger than Judaism and Christianity. It perceives it self as the completion of the line of prophecy both in message and person; humanity was ready for the final revelation and final prophet. Islam is inclusive and, therefore, the Islamic creed would be incomplete without believing in all the prophets who were mentioned in the Qur’an, including those of the Children of Israel. The essential monotheistic messages that were revealed before Islam are also included in what a Muslim believes “Say: We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us, and what was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and what was given to Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord; we do not make any distinction between any of them and to Him do we submit.” Qur’an, 3:84[1] It is no wonder that Paul Schwarzenau, in Korankunde für Christen, referred to the Qur’an as an ecumenical revelation.[2] Compatible with Schwarzenau’s idea, is the Islamic paradigm for convivencia amongst the children of Abraham and beyond.

Jesus Christ: A Prophet of Islam

By Dr. Mustafa Abu Sway

 

Introduction:

 

Islam, as the religion that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), is younger than Judaism and Christianity.  It perceives it self as the completion of the line of prophecy both in message and person; humanity was ready for the final revelation and final prophet.   Islam is inclusive and, therefore, the Islamic creed would be incomplete without believing in all the prophets who were mentioned in the Qur’an, including those of the Children of Israel.  The essential monotheistic messages that were revealed before Islam are also included in what a Muslim believes

“Say: We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us, and what was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and what was given to Moses and Jesus and the prophets from their Lord; we do not make any distinction between any of them and to Him do we submit.” Qur’an, 3:84[1]

Understanding Allah, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Question:

Please explain clearly about these:

1. Who is Allah?
2. Who is God?
3. Who is Jesus?
4. Can I see all of them?
5. Whether they are all the same, since we say that Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit are the same.
6. Suppose I want to pray, how should I start praying?

Answer

Thank you for your questions. I would like to start out by saying that Muslims believe that all prophets of God preached the same simple truth of the One Sovereign God.

Who Is Allah? Who Is God?

Allah is God. The name Allah is the Arabic word for God. More precisely, it is the One Eternal Creator, Lord of the whole universe. It is the same Arabic name for God that is used in the Arabic Bible.

It is pronounced almost the same in other Semitic languages: “Eloha” in Hebrew, and “Allaha” in Aramaic. According to Jesus (peace be upon him), God is One, with no partner whatsoever. I quote the following verses from the Bible:

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and him only.’” (Matthew 4:10)

“Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him.” (Mark 12:32)

“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.’” (Mark 12:29)

Who Is Jesus?

Jesus is one of a long string of prophets of Allah sent to all nations throughout history, starting from Adam, who received the first guidance from Allah, to the final one, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them all).

Jesus Freak

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

(Recollections of a convert to Islam)

 

 

When I was a child, growing up in the sixties and seventies just a few blocks away from the notorious Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, I was surrounded by the hippie movement. It was a “turn on, tune in, drop out” age of sexual freedom, cultural revolution and social recklessness.

 

Happily, I was never caught up in the hippie movement, but being so close to it, I could not help but observe its development. One thing I clearly remember is how many hippies were labeled “Jesus freaks.” As I surf my childhood memories, nearly four decades later, this euphemism strikes me as having been decidedly peculiar. These hippies were considered “Jesus freaks” because they dressed as Jesus did, grew their hair as he did, renounced materialism as he did, and propagated devotion to God, peace, charity and communal love.

Now, many whom embarked upon this path fell into hallucinogenic drug use and wanton sexual proclivities—practices which are far from the example of Jesus—but this is not why these hippies were called Jesus freaks. Rather, they were called Jesus freaks for their long hair, loose clothing, asceticism, communal unity and passivism, all a result of their effort to live like Jesus. The House of Love and Prayer, located nearby in the avenues, was a collecting point for many of these well-meaning souls, and the title of the institution reflected their focus in life.

Jesus Christ – Son of God? Part 2 of 2

Saturday, July 21st, 2012
 

Christian clergy openly acknowledge that Jesus never called himself “son of God,” however they claim that others did.  This too has an answer.

Investigating the manuscripts that make up the New Testament, one finds that the alleged “sonship” of Jesus is based upon the mistranslation of two Greek words—pais and huios, both of which are translated as “son.”  However, this translation appears disingenuous.  The Greek word pais derives from the Hebrew ebed, which bears the primary meaning of servant, or slave.  Hence, the primary translation of pais theou is “servant of God,” with “child” or “son of God” being an extravagant embellishment.  According to the Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, “The Hebrew original of pais in the phrase pais theou, i.e., ebed, carries a stress on personal relationship and has first the sense of ‘slave.’”[1]  This is all the more interesting because it dovetails perfectly with the prophecy of Isaiah 42:1, upheld in Matthew 12:18: “Behold, My servant [i.e., from the Greek pais] whom I have chosen, My beloved in whom my soul is well pleased …” Whether a person reads the King James Version, New King James Version, New Revised Standard Version, or New International Version, the word is “servant” in all cases.  Considering that the purpose of revelation is to make the truth of God clear, one might think this passage an unsightly mole on the face of the doctrine of divine sonship.  After all, what better place for God to have declared Jesus His son?  What better place to have said, “Behold, My son whom I have begotten …”?  But He didn’t say that.  For that matter, the doctrine lacks biblical support in the recorded words of both Jesus and God, and there is good reason to wonder why.  Unless, that is, Jesus was nothing more than the servant of God this passage describes.

Jesus Christ – Son of God? Part 1 of 2

Saturday, July 21st, 2012


 

 

“One of the most striking differences between a cat and a lie is

   that a cat has only nine lives.”

 

                        —Mark Twain, Pudd’nhead Wilson’s Calendar

 

Son of God, son of David, or son of Man?  Jesus is identified as “son of David” fourteen times in the New Testament, starting with the very first verse (Matthew 1:1).  The Gospel of Luke documents forty-one generations between Jesus and David, while Matthew lists twenty-six.  Jesus, a distant descendant, can only wear the “son of David” title metaphorically.  But how then should we understand the title, “son of God?”

The “Trilemma,” a common proposal of Christian missionaries, states that “Jesus was either a lunatic, a liar, or the Son of God, as he claimed to be.”  For the sake of argument, let’s agree that Jesus was neither a lunatic nor a liar.  Let’s also agree he was precisely what he claimed to be.  But what, exactly, was that?  Jesus called himself “Son of Man” frequently, consistently, perhaps even emphatically, but where did he call himself “Son of God?”

Let’s back up.  What does “Son of God” mean in the first place?  No legitimate Christian sect suggests that God took a wife and had a child, and most certainly none conceive that God fathered a child through a human mother outside of marriage.  Furthermore, to suggest that God physically mated with an element of His creation is so far beyond the limits of religious tolerance as to plummet down the sheer cliff of blasphemy, chasing the mythology of the Greeks.

With no rational explanation available within the tenets of Christian doctrine, the only avenue for closure is to claim yet one more doctrinal mystery.  Here is where the Muslim recalls the question posed in the Quran:

“…How can He have a son when He has no consort?…” (Quran 6:101)
