Baptism - What is the real Concept from Bible


2:138. (Our religion is) the Baptism ( صِبۡغَةَ )of Allah. And who can baptize better than Allah. And it is He Whom we worship.
139. Say: Will ye dispute with us about Allah, seeing that He is our Lord and your Lord; that we are responsible for our doings and ye for yours; and that We are sincere (in our faith) in Him?
140. Or do ye say that Abraham, Isma'il Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes were Jews or Christians? Say: Do ye know better than Allah. Ah! who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah. but Allah is not unmindful of what ye do!
141. That was a people that hath passed away. They shall reap the fruit of what they did, and ye of what ye do! Of their merits there is no question in your case:
142. The fools among the people will say: "What hath turned them from the Qibla to which they were used?" Say: To Allah belong both east and West: He guideth whom He will to a Way that is straight.
143. Thus, have We made of you an Ummat justly balanced, that ye might be witnesses over the nations, and the Messenger a witness over yourselves; and We appointed the Qibla to which thou wast used, only to test those who followed the Messenger from those who would turn on their heels (From the Faith). Indeed it was (A change) momentous, except to those guided by Allah. And never would Allah Make your faith of no effect. For Allah is to all people Most surely full of kindness, Most Merciful.
144. We see the turning of thy face (for guidance to the heavens: now Shall We turn thee to a Qibla that shall please thee. Turn then Thy face in the direction of the sacred Mosque: Wherever ye are, turn your faces in that direction. The people of the Book know well that that is the truth from their Lord. Nor is Allah unmindful of what they do.
145. Even if thou wert to bring to the people of the Book all the Signs (together), they would not follow Thy Qibla; nor art thou going to follow their Qibla; nor indeed will they follow each other's Qibla. If thou after the knowledge hath reached thee, Wert to follow their (vain) desires,-then wert thou Indeed (clearly) in the wrong.
146. The people of the Book know this as they know their own sons; but some of them conceal the truth which they themselves know.
147. The Truth is from thy Lord; so be not at all in doubt.
148. To each is a goal to which Allah turns him; then strive together (as in a race) Towards all that is good. Wheresoever ye are, Allah will bring you Together. For Allah Hath power over all things.
149. From whencesoever Thou startest forth, turn Thy face in the direction of the sacred Mosque; that is indeed the truth from the Lord. And Allah is not unmindful of what ye do.
150. So from whencesoever Thou startest forth, turn Thy face in the direction of the sacred Mosque; and wheresoever ye are, Turn your face thither: that there be no ground of dispute against you among the people, except those of them that are bent on wickedness; so fear them not, but fear Me; and that I may complete My favours on you, and ye May (consent to) be guided;
151. A similar (favour have ye already received) in that We have sent among you an Messenger of your own, rehearsing to you Our Signs, and sanctifying you, and instructing you in Scripture and Wisdom, and in new knowledge.
152. Then do ye remember Me; I will remember you. Be grateful to Me, and reject not Faith.
153. O ye who believe! seek help with patient perseverance and prayer; for Allah is with those who patiently persevere.

إِلَهُكُمْ إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ فَالَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْآَخِرَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ مُنْكِرَةٌ وَهُمْ مُسْتَكْبِرُونَ

QURAN 16:22. Your Allah is one Allah. as to those who believe not in the Hereafter, their hearts refuse to know, and they are arrogant.


Ephesians 4:5
New International Version (NIV)
5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;  5 وَلَكُمْ رَبٌّ وَاحِدٌ، وَإِيمَانٌ وَاحِدٌ، وَمَعْمُودِيَّةٌ وَاحِدَةٌ،

First commandment has never changed and the creator of the heavens and the earth is Allah alone.
ﺗﻜﻮﻳﻦ 1 (Genesis 1:1)
 1 فِي الْبَدْءِ خَلَقَ اللهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ،


ST. MATTHEW 3: 2-12

Zechariah was from the family of Imran which by tradition was the religious leader who took care of the temple in Jerusalem.

Mary, mother of Jesus, was also from the same family. (46 The name of Mary's father was lmran and the father of Moses was also Imran. Moses, Zacheriah, Mary, and Jesus were all the family of Imran the great father (Sura Al-Amran) in the Holy Quran.
Mary’s mother became pregnant with Mary, but before Mary's birth, her father died. Mary's mother offered to God, that the child born to her will take care of the temple. When Mary was born, the Israeli elders said that a woman cannot take care of the temple by herself since this was traditionally a man's job, Zechariah being husband of Mary’s aunt became Mary's guardian.

Zechariah would bring food to Mary while she was at the temple. He would always find that Mary already had food, This food was specially prepared in such a way that it was not known to the people of the area. Zechariah knew this special food was not from ordinary people but from God, and Mary told Zechariah so.
Zechariah entered the Chamber and secretly prayed to God for a son  since he was old and didn't have an heir. Immediately the angles appeared to Zechariah and told him he would have a son, and his name would be John (Yahya, which means alive) this name was never used before by anyone. Therefore, he was named by God. Since Zechariah was old, and his wife was barren, the people respected John because his family's prayers were answered by God.  John studied the Holy Scriptures and had many followers.

John's disciples, as missionaries, brought many people who wanted to repent, wanted to repent and be ready after what John had said, in verse2, that the kingdom of heaven is coming to them soon. The Jews at that time were under the rule of the atheistic Romans.

The Kingdom of God is the Islamic State established by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) which drove the Romans out Jerusalem (Darussalam) as mentioned in Daniel 2:44. John's followers went to the Jordan River to show God that they wanted to establish a new relationship with him. Since John was a pious man, he would serve as their witness in front of God to show their sincerity.

In (Matthew 3:7-8) verse 7 and 8; John is telling the children of Israel that the leaders from the religious sects of Pharisees and Sadducees"((47 A- Pharisees is the largest group of Jews. They believe Paridise isonly for them. They strictly observe their law and separate themselves from anyone outside their group.   B- Sadducees is a group that denied all the Old Testament teachings. This group started in 280 B.C. they loved the material world. Sadok was the man that founded this group and they opposed the Pharisees and formed the Jewish aristocracy.)) are like vipers (snakes). They do not come to repent because they have not shown John that they are changing their bad deeds (fruit).

During the time of Prophets John and Jesus (pbut), the society was corrupt and had lost the right path to God. The pious people of those times would go to the mountain areas to study the Holy Scriptures.

For 18 years the writers of the Bible didn't write about what happened to Jesus until he was thirty years old and began his mission.

When they were ready, they left these mountain retreats to be missionaries. This was what John and Jesus did.

We believe that Jesus spent about 18 years studying the scriptures in the mountains. The people of Jerusalem readily accepted John and Jesus. They listened to these prophets' teachings and followed them because the people knew that these prophets had more knowledge about religion than anyone else. It was the corrupt religious and political establishments that were afraid of the prophets and tried to kill them. We believe that Judah Makabi, who led a revolt against the Roman Empire (165 B.C.), was also among those who studied the scriptures in the mountains and cave retreats.

The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947 in a cave called Qumran was believed to be from one of these missionary schools. Study tables and writing materials were also found in these caves. These missionaries separated themselves from the city people because of the great corruption the society was involved in. These missionaries even used different clothing and ate different foods to separate themselves from society (Mathew 3:4).

After the age of 12, both Jesus and John lived in these mountain retreats. The Bible has no account of the friends of these two prophets as they were growing up, because the writers of the New Testament were neither friends nor companions of Jesus. When Jesus and John returned to the cities, the only friends they had were each other. John and Jesus had to establish all their relationships.

Matthew 3:9 Verse 9; John tells the same people that just because they are children of Abraham, does not mean they will be saved. God will raise the children of Abraham, those in Makkah, who are worshipping idols (stones), but will accept Islam and become righteous again; the same practice that of Abraham (pbuh).
John is telling the children of Israel that they are no longer the people chosen to carry the word of God. In the past, the children of Israel were chosen to carry the message of God through their prophets. The word chosen does not mean the "best", but those who are worthy to receive and spread God's message. John and Jesus were the last prophets from the children ofIsrael. These two prophets were also rejected by their people (Jews) and so the prophethood was given to the other children of Abraham through Ishmael to Muhammad (pbuh).

Matthew 3:10 (Verse 10); describes the time of the prophet, who will be raised from the people of Makkah and who will tight them until they accept Islam (630 A.D.) .John is saying that this axe (Muhammad) will destroy the unrighteous people from each tribe (trees). Those that fight against following Islam will be cut down and sent to hell (fire ).

Matthew 3:11 (Verse 11); John is describing a prophet that will come to them in the future. Jesus, son of Mary and cousin of John, was also of John’s time. This future prophet is much greater that John and will wear shoes that will be tied. Jesus always walked bare footed.
John says that I baptize the people with water, but this future Prophet (Muhammad) will baptize them with the Holy Ghost (Angel Gabriel who brought the QURAN) and fire (the battles that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) fought against those who tried to destroy Islam and the Muslims.)  

[Similar prophecy is also found in Bhavishya Purana in the Pratisarag Parv III Khand 3 Adhay 3 Shloka 10 to 27 that “….They will not seek purification from the holy shrubs, but will be purified through warfare. On account of their fighting the irreligious nations, they will be known as Musalmaans…..”]
Jesus was never involved in war. John did not stop baptizing even when Jesus came, nor told the people that Jesus was this last prophet (from children of Israel) that John was describing.

The "Kingdom of Heaven" (verse 2) is the kingdom of God that will finish all the other kingdoms in the region as described in Daniel 2:44 and Matthew 21:43. Many of the prophets including John and Jesus spoke of the kingdom of God. They were describing a kingdom or nation on this Earth that would be supported by God, and would work for and spread the word and law of God. Only the kingdom brought by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) works for God to bring justice. All the other kingdoms of this region brought suffering to the people and prophets.

Thus, they were all awaiting the coming of the "Kingdom of God" which the Jews of Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, and Ethiopia and most Arab Christians who would become Muslims. They accepted Islam through the words of John and Jesus who prepared the people for the coming of the "Kingdom of Heaven". John did not follow Jesus nor ordered his followers to follow Jesus, Till today, Christians use water to baptize and not with the Holy Ghost and fire!! Jesus never baptized anyone nor did he give anyone permission to baptize. Jesus (pbuh), as described in the Gospels, washed the feet of his disciples. He never requested his disciples to baptize anyone; neither did his disciples baptize anyone.

Verse 12; John says this future prophet will have the sign of a king (Fan). Jesus was under the rule of Romans, and his duty was to teach the children of Israel to repent and follow God's laws. Jesus told the children of Israel to appease the Romans so that they would not be harmed by them. Jesus (pbuh) wanted his people to follow God and not be concerned about the Romans or be harmed by them.

Jesus did not judge anyone (Luke 12:14). Those who follow Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and accept Islam will gather unto him (wheat in to the garner), and those who do not follow him (the chaff) will be doomed to hell (unquenchable fire) in the last Day of Judgment.

The followers of John moved to Syria, Iran, and southern Iraq (city of Omarah). They always lived close to rivers to baptize themselves. John's followers never became Christians. They became Muslims with the coming of Prophet Muhammad. Today these followers of John, several thousands, are called Sabin, which means (to baptize) in Arabic. A Sabin is a person who is sturdy, erect, and pouring water over his head and body.
Even before they became Muslims, they used the name Hammed, Mahmoud, because John must have been given a clue as to the description of the future Prophet (Muhammad).
My teacher, Hammed Al Leaibi converted to Islam in 1961, by reading the Qur'an. He was also from the Sabin people.
Verse 2; The Kingdom of Heaven was the Islamic State, established by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), which expelled the Romans from Jerusalem.
Verses 7 and 8; John describes the Israelis as Vipers.
Verse 9 and 10; God will raise those in Makkah who worship idols (stones) but will accept Islam through Prophet Muhammad (The axe) will finish the evils from each tribe (trees).
Verse 11; Prophet Muhammad, wearing shoes (sandals) that will be tied), will baptize the people with the Holy Ghost, Qur'an and fire, the battles that Prophet Muhammad fought against those who tried to destroy Islam).

Matthew 3: 1-12 .
1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 
3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet E-Saias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 
4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and II leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan,
6 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sad-du-cees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance;
9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.
10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
11 [indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I.' whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: 
12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his 110or, and gather his wheat into t,he garner; but he will bum up the chaff with unquenchable fire. 

st. Luke 3:15-17
15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;
16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of' whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:
17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with tire unquenchable.

St Mark 1:7-8 
7 And preached saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
8 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

Jesus did not judge anyone. Those who follow Prophet Muhammad will gather unto him (wheat into the gamer) and those who do not follow him (the chaff) will be doomed to hell.
st. Luke 12: 14.
14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

The followers of John moved to Syria, Iran, and Southern Iraq. They lived close to rrvers to baptize themselves. John's followers never became Christian. They became Muslims with the coming of Prophet Muhammad.
Sura 5: 68-69.
Sura 5
68. Say: "O People of the Book! ye have no gnund to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gosrel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord." It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Feith. 69. Those who believe (in the Qur'an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians and the Christiam,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness,- on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

Petra (Mount Seir) Bethlehem, the birthplace of Prophet Jesus (pbuh) is found in the area called Petra. This area was once ruled by the Children of Ishmael (pbuh), Nebajoth, and Kedar: Deuteronomy 33 (2).

Nablis (Mount Gerizim ), Palestine. The Samaritans Jews believed this is the holy mountains instead of Zion for the Israelis, but Jesus (pbuh) said that it is in another place (Makkah) John 4: 19-23.

ST. MATTHEW 21: 43

Verse 43, Jesus is talking to all the people of his time, and "':peeially the ehildren of Israel. First he mentions the kingdom of ( ;()d. All kingdoms of God (religions) rose from prophets and kings llial represented a set of God's religious laws and teachings. Jesus ':ays that God's kingdom "Shall be taken from you." "You" is describing those living in the area during Jesus time. Jesus is saying llial he is the last prophet to come from the children of Israel, so after lcsus, another Prophet (Muhammad) and king will arise from another nation. Jesus is telling this to the Romans, children of Israel, the tirst Christians, etc. Daniel 2:44.

Then Jesus says that God's kingdom will be given to mother nation. God promised Abraham that the kingdom will be !'ivcn to his children, the descendents of Isaac, Ishmael, and the six ehildren of Keturah, the third wife of Abraham. The children of Kcturah became Muslims in 638 A.D. as stated in Genesis 15: 18-21.

Then this Kingdom was given to Prophet Muhammad who was a descendant of Ishmael. Of the whole world, only one nation, that of Ishmael, raised a Prophet (Muhammad) and a book (The QURAN) that mentions the prophets (descendants of Abraham) and their stories including Jesus. The fruit that will come from this nation will be the teachings of God- Islam - through Prophet Muhammad and his companions.

The fruit which is raised (ripen) through Islam gives benefits to those who raise it and those who come in contact with it. The followers of Prophet Muhammad carried with them the fruit of Islam to all the other nations in the area. These other nations upon their acceptance of Islam also benefited from it. The fruit which all Muslims who surrender to the will of God enjoy is a more wholesome life style on this earth, and the promise of Paradise after this life. In Matthew 7: 15-20, Jesus is telling his disciples that after him many false prophets will come except for one true prophet of
God (Muhammad).

Jesus says that the people can recognize the true prophet by the fruits that he brings. The fruit represents the true word of God. and good deeds. Jesus never said that he was the last prophet of the covenant. (See Matthew 3:2-12, Mark 1:7-8, John 1:19-26, Luke 7:19-20, John 14:16-30, John 16:5-13, John 15-26-27, Matthew 21 :39-46, these verses are descriptions of the last true prophet or God, Muhammad (pbuh)).

Verse 42; When Jesus talks about the stone, he is describing the Kaabah in Makkah. The builders (children of Israel) are those who built the temple in Jerusalem, and rejected the Kaabah built by Abraham and Ishmael. Jesus also says that God will raise the Kaabah as the head of the corner (glorify) above the other stones (temples of God). Jesus is asking these followers why they haven't read this in the Scriptures, as mentioned in Malachi 2:6-7, Psalm 84: 1-7, Isaiah 60:1-12, and Haggai 2:7-9.

The followers of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) carried with them the fruit of Islam to the rest of the nations in the world.
Matthew 21: 28-46

28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, Sir: and went not. 
31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, the first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, that the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. 
32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not; but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.
33 Hear another parable; there was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower and let it out to husbandmen, and went into far country; 
34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. 
35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. 
36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
37 But last of all he sent unto them his son saying, they will reverence my son.
38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, this is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They "say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 
42 Jesus saith unto them, did ye never read in the scriptures, the stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes'?
43 Therefore say I unto you, the kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake oftbem.
46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

The fruit, which all Muslims who surrender to the will of God enjoy, is the more wholesome life style on this Earth and the promise of Paradise after this life. Matthew 7: 15-20.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth-good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth-evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit; neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 

Masjid of the Ascension: this is said to be the place from which Jesus (pbuh) rose to heaven from earth. It is said to contain the footprint of Jesus and is within the area of a mosque. It is also said that Jesus spent most of his prayers here.

John the Baptist would baptize those willing to repent and stay faithful in the Jordan River.

The Umayyuay Mosque, Damascus. Grave of John the Baptist and where he was executed by a Jewish King. When the leaders of these four churches embraced Islam, they converted it to a Mosque. According to the prophecies or Muhammad (pbuh), Jesus will make his descent from the heavens here carried by two angels in order to light the Anti-Christ. He will kill the anti- Christ in the city of Led, Palestine.

ST. LUKE 7: 16-20

The people knew from the Scriptures that the last and greatest prophet was coming. John knew that the last and greatest prophet was not Jesus and nor in John's time. When the people and John's disciples heard that Jesus had performed miracles, they asked John if Jesus was the last prophet to all the nations.
John already knew Jesus. John, in person, sent two of his disciples to ask Jesus if he is the last prophet that they are all waiting for, LUKE 7:20. Jesus never answered their question, but Jesus did answer the question in .lohn 14: 15-16. If Jesus had answered that he was the last prophet for all the nations, John's disciples would have followed Jesus. We know from history that John's followers never became Christians hut did become Muslims.

St. Luke 7: 16-20
16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, that a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God has visited his people.
17 And this rum our of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about.
18 And the disciples of John showed him of all these things.
19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? Or look we for another?
20 When the man were come unto him they said John Baptized hath sent us unto three, saying, Art, thou he that should come? Or look we for another.

ST. JOHN 1: 19-27

These verses are describing the purpose of Prophet John's teaching. John had two purposes, the first was to tell the children of Israel (verse 23) to correct their bad ways and follow the straight path as God has shown them through Prophet Elias, Sura 37:123-126. The second purpose of John was to tell the children of Israel of the coming ofthe greatest prophet and to follow him. In verse 27, John says this great prophet will come after me. The time of Elias had already passed, and Jesus was at the same time as of John. John cannot be talking of Jesus or Elias. John also describes this great prophet as one who wears laced shoes. Jesus did not wear any shoes or sandals, but Prophet Muhammad did wear laced shoes (sandals).

The Jewish priests and Levites that came to question John asked him about three very important prophets. They asked him of Christ, Elias, and the future prophet. The Levites were especially interested in the third prophet, because the Levites knew from Malachi (3: 1-4) that this prophet will deal very harshly with them. The Levites wanted to know if John was that prophet. If not, they wanted information from John about this prophet. John denied being the Messiah; neither did he insist that they should follow Jesus. John and his followers never followed Jesus. John never told the Levites
to follow Jesus.

There was zion mountion in Jerusalem and it was significant for worship of JEWS BUT ANOTHER JEWiSH sect Samoritans who are in small number lived in the city of nablis, they took the mountion Gerizim in their city of nablis. They did not be live the Israeli state and they rejected all the prophets after Moses(pubh).

In John 4: 19-23 Jesus clarified that the worship will be away from these two mountions i.e. in Paran mountain, in Makkah (kabbah) Deut 33:2.

St. John 1: 19-27
19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou E-lias? And he said, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
22 Then said they unto him, Who art Thou'? That we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet E- sai' as,
24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.
25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor E-li'as, neither that Prophet?
John answered them, saying, I baptize with water; but there Iandeth one among you, whom ye know not;
27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

John told the Israelis that to correct their wicked deeds and follow the straight path as God has shown them through Prophet Elias.
Sura 37: 123-126.
123. So also was Elias among those sent (by Us). 
124. Behold, he said to his people, "Will ye not fear ((Allah))?
125."Will ye call upon Baal and forsake the Best of Creators,-
126. "(Allah), your Lord and Cherisher and the Lord and Cherisher of your fathers of old?"

This is the mountain in Mina near which Abraham took his first son to be sacrificed but was stopped by the Angel Gabriel when he descended from the mountain carrying a large ram. The ram was sacrificed instead of Ishmael. Since then, Muslims have commemorated this by sacrificing an animal on this mountain.
Mount Hara where Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) first encountered the angel Gabriel in 610 A.D. as mentioned in Isaiah 29:12.


ST. JOHN 14:16,25,26,30

"Paraclete" in Hebrew means "praised one." The Greek word "Uduika" is the Hebrew word Mahmad, Muhmud. This translates to Paraclete. Hamad was often used in the Old Testament Scripture, which is from the same source of Arabic words:
Muhammad, Hamad, Mahmoud, and Hamid.

Manhmia (Syriac Language) from Paraclete translates to Muhammad.

The Gospel of st. John according to St. John was accepted by the European Christians 300 years after the time of Jesus. The first copy that was found was written in the Coptic language and then translated to the Greek language because by that time the Greeks had become Christians. We don't know what language John wrote this Gospel in. This was the only Gospel ever written in Greek during that time.

Many Christian scholars believe that the Gospel according to John was not written until one hundred years after the birth of Jesus. The first copy was found in Egypt written in the Coptic language, and a copy in the Greek language was found in Europe during the forth century.

Starting with verse 15, Jesus is saying that true believers must follow God's laws. In verse 16, Jesus says that God will send to the people another prophet (comforter). Here, Jesus (pbuh) is saying that the last prophet, the comforter, will bring a law (the QURAN) and leave his teaching (Hadith) for the people for all times.
The "Greek" word that is translated to mean comforter is "Paraclete." This word is translated from the Hebrew words "farcat" and "Lete." These Hebrew words are best translated to mean "the praised one". This Hebrew word is similar in meaning to the Greek and Arabic nouns; Hamad which means giving more praises continuously. The word has exactly the same meaning in Greek as in Arabic (Ahmad) "the most praised one." This is similar to the word Muhammad which means one who was praised in the past, and will be praised forever, Sura 61: 6.
The word Muhammad is a combination of these two words (Hamad and Ahmad). The word Ahmad was never used by the Jews nor Greeks nor the Arabs as a person's name. Prophet Muhammad was the first person to ever have this name.

Verse 16, shows that Jesus knows he is not the last prophet.
Jesus tells the people that he will pray to thank God and show his appreciation to God for sending this comforter (prophet). Jesus is telling the people that this next prophet will be the last one to all the nations, and he will be with you forever. Jesus was praised and he in turn is calling another prophet the praised one.

Verse 25 Jesus is talking to his disciples. Jesus himself is telling the people of this future prophet because of his importance. The people have been told by Jesus, so they will have no excuse not to listen to or follow this prophet.

Jesus says that the father "God" will send this prophet who will teach you things and mention my name. Prophet Muhammad and his companions had no previous knowledge of the Bible Scriptures, yet Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) related the story of Jesus in the QURAN. Jesus also says that prophet Muhammad will tell you everything that I have said to you.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) described in detail important events and facts about Jesus (pbuh) that were not in the New Testament. The QURAN mentions stories that the Christians did not know or could not deny.

No Jew or any nation ever mentioned the name of Jesus, as the Muslims did, to tell Christians to become Muslims as Jesus said in this verse 26 (in my name).

Verse 30, Jesus is saying that he does not have to explain much of God's law to the people because the next prophet, "the prince of the world" (Muhammad) will teach you everything. Jesus also says that this future prophet is not him ("and hath nothing in me").

St. John 14: 16,25,26,30
15 Ifye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abid with you forever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him: for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 
22 .Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
23 .Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.
25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you, Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
29 And now] have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe.
30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
"Paraclete" mean "the most praised one" this is similar to the word Muhammad which means one who was praised in the past, and will be praised forever.

Sura 61: 6
Sura 61
6. And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: "O Children of Israel! I am the apostle of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of all Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad." But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, "this is evident sorcery!"

This map shows how much of the world is under majority Islamic influence today. There are currently almost 2 billion Muslims in the world, and that number is rapidly growing. All of these are under the teachings of the Prince of the World, Muhammad (pbuh).


ST. JOHN 16:5-14

Verse 5, Prophet Jesus (pbuh) says he is leaving tbe people he is speaking to, and is leaving to go to the One Who chose him to be a messenger. Jesus also tells his disciples that they don't know where he is going and Jesus cannot describe the place that he is going to.
Verse 7, Prophet Jesus (pbuh) says it is better for the people that Jesus leave because the comforter will bring the truth, and the completed religion. Jesus also tells the people that the comforter is a stronger and more potent prophet than him, when he says, "It is expedient for you that I go away." Jesus is also saying that in his departure is the reason for this next prophet's coming, not the Jesus personally will send the comforter. Jesus says that he must leave because, "The comforter (praised one ~ Ahmad) will not come unto you until leaves."
If Prophet Jesus (pbuh) was responsible for sending the next prophet, then it would not be necessary for Jesus to leave. Jesus is describing God's plan in which Jesus is an event in a chain of events leading to the coming of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Jesus (pbuh) said he has finished his duty and therefore, he must leave.
Verse 8, Jesus (pbuh) says when the comforter (Praised one- Ahmad) comes he will convict sins and praise righteousness. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was given the authority from God to rule in order to purify and improve society by teaching his companions (who make up the society). Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) also praised righteousness by promising Paradise to those who submit themselves to God's will (Deut. 18: 18-19).
In verse 9, this comforter is a real person, not a Holy Spirit, a symbol, not an untouchable, unspeakable idea or word. Jesus says those from any nation who do not accept the prophecies of Jesus as being the Word of God, that Jesus is the Son of Mary, the perfect and pure, and those who do not believe that Jesus is a prophet of God are making a mistake. God has told us through the QURAN, the Jesus is a prophet of God.

In verse 11, Jesus says that Muhammad has already been judged by God. Muhammad (pbuh) is the servant of God that God has chosen (Isaiah 42:1-12).

Muhammad is the chosen one to be the Judge of this World as shown in Genesis 49:10 and 16.
Verse 13, Jesus says that the Spirit of Truth will guide you from what he hears and therefore these truths do not come from himself but from God through the Angel Gabriel. Also that Prophet Muhammad will tell you many prophecies of future things. The description of how Prophet Muhammad will be given the QURAN is also described in Deuteronomy 18:18-19. Verse 13, is describing a living person walking among the people and bringing the QURAN (the Word of God) to them.
In verse 14, Jesus is describing how Prophet Muhammad, through the QURAN, will tell his companions that Jesus is a prophet and relate the true story of what happened to Jesus.
Verse 10, Prophet (pbuh) Jesus is saying what he has done is righteous and this is what God has told him to do. Now that Jesus has finished his duty, he will be raised to heaven and be closer to God. He will not be seen again by the people of his time, yet Jesus will return, after the time of the comforter (Praised one-- Ahmad) to bear witness that Prophet Muhamrnad is also a messenger of God, as Prophet Muhammad is a witness through the QURAN that Jesus is a messenger of God (John, 15:26-27).
In verse 26, Jesus says that the comforter (Praised on - Ahmad) who will be sent by God after Jesus has left will testify that Jesus is a Prophet of God.
Verse 27 states that Jesus' disciples will also bear witness that Jesus is a messenger of God.
Prophet Jesus (pbuh) says, "He must leave because the comforter (praised one-Ahmad) will not come unto you", until Jesus leaves.
John 16: 5-14.
5 But now I go my way to him that sent me: and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that J go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and ofrighteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of "righteousness, because I go to my father, and ye see me no more;
11 Of judgment, because the prince ofthis world is judged.
12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 
13 How be it when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
14 He shall glorify me; for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Jesus says that after his leaving to Heaven, the comforter (praised one-Ahmad) will be sent by God. John 15: 26-27
26 But "when the Comforter is come, who I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the father, he shall testify of me:
27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning,

The spread of Islam was prophesized by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and mentioned in Genesis 15: 18-21 by ending the Persian and Roman Empires. The expansion ofIslam was very rapid as shown above, but it took less than 15 years to fulfill the prophesies in the Bible (from Euphrates to Nile).


PSALM 2: 6-7 AND EXODUS 4: 16-23

It is important to remember that the word "son" as used in the Hebrew language, is used to describe a person that is very close to God. In Psalm 2 verse 7, God is saying that He has chosen David to be H is messenger for that period of time. Here, "begotten" is used to mean chosen not as we would use it in the sense of a mother and father having a child. Even today, those who use the Hebrew language understand the use of the word "son" to mean one who is close to God. Again in Exodus 4 verse 22, God is describing Israel as His son and firstborn, meaning he is the first one to be the prophet from this children.

Exodus 4: 22, God is also challenging Pharaoh. Pharaoh considered himself a God. God tells Pharaoh that He will protect the children of Israel through Moses. If Pharaoh does not allow the Israeli children to go in peace, Pharaoh will not be able to protect his first-born son from God.

Neither the Jews nor the Christians ever accepted David, Israel, or Jacob (the father and the first prophet of the children of Israel) as the Son of God. The Bible describes many persons as the Son of God, but it was never meant to describe that person as God, or an equal to God.

AND ACT 14: 11

In the Hebrew language, a person given great power from God (Yahweh) is also called God or Lord (Aloheem) as shown in Exodus 7:1, in the description of Moses. God is describing Moses (pbuh) as being superior to Pharaoh because Moses (pbuh) received power from God. If Pharaoh considered himself God because of the power he had, then Moses had higher power than Pharaoh. Moses was given power to change the river's water into blood by God's permission. Moses also parted the sea so the children of Israel could pass, and closed it again so as to drown Pharaoh and his soldiers. This is how to understand that Moses (pbuh) was a God to Pharaoh, above and more powerful than Pharaoh.
In Acts ] 4: I I, Paul and Barnabas were called gods by the People, as was customary for the people of that time to describe anyone with power from God. This also happened to Jesus, and Jesus denied it as Paul and Barnabas did.
In John 16:32, Jesus tells his followers that the time for him to leave is now, and Jesus sent them away.
In verse 33, Jesus says not to feel sorry for him since he is in peace, because God is with him. No one was allowed to see Jesus taken up into heaven.
The Bible describes several persons as the sons of God, but it was never meant to describe these persons as God, an equal to God, or begotten by God.
Psalm 2: 6-7, Exodus 4: 16-23

Psalm 2: 6-7
6 'Truly it is I that have established My king upon Zion, My holy mountain.'
7 I will tell of the decree: the LORD said unto me: 'Thou art My son, this day have I begotten thee.
Exodus 4: 16-23
16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people; and it shall come to pass, that he shall be to thee a mouth, and thou shalt be to him in God's stead.
17 And thou shalt take in thy hand this rod, wherewith thou shalt do the signs.'
18 And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father-in-law, and said unto him: 'Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren that are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive.' And Jethro said to Moses: 'Go in peace.'
19 And the LORD said unto Moses in Midian: 'Go, return into Egypt; for all the men are dead that sought thy life.'
20 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt; and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.
21 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'When thou goest back into Egypt, see that thou do before Pharaoh all the wonders which 1 have put in thy hand; but I will harden his heart, and he will not let the people go.
22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh: Thus saith the LORD:
Israel is My son, My first-born.
23 And I have said unto thee: Let My son go, that he may serve Me; and thou hast refused to let him go. Behold, I will slay thy son, thy first-born.'
If Pharaoh considered himself God because of the power he had, and Moses had power to do more than Pharaoh, he is a god in comparison to Pharaoh. Exodus 7: 1
1 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'See, 1 have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.
Paul and Barnabas were called gods by the people, as was customary for the people of that time to describe anyone with power from God. This also happened to Jesus, and he denied it as Paul and Barnabas did.
The Acts 14: 10-17
10 Said with a loud voice, Stand up-right on thy feet. And he leaped and walked.
11 And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Ly-ca-o-ni-a, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.
12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mer-cu-ri-us, because he was the chief speaker.
13 Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people.
14 Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out,
15 And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:
16 Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. 
17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good and gave us rain from heaven and fruitful season, filling our hearts with food and gladness.
Jesus says not to feel sorry for him since he is in peace, because God is with him.
No one was allowed to see Jesus taken up into heaven.

St. John 16: 32-33
32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea is now corne, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Jesus the son of Mary was a man and a messenger of Allah with a mission, therefore, not God, or the Son of God.
Sura 4: 171-172
171. O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding fr0111 Him: so believe in Allah and His apostles. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah. Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. 172. Christ disdaineth nor to serve and worship Allah, nor do the angels, those
nearest (to Allah.: those who disdain His worship and are arrogant,-He will gather them all together unto Himself to (answer).

JOHN 17: 1-15

In chapter 17, Jesus is explaining all the things that God expected him to do. This chapter speaks of the last hours of Jesus' time on Earth, before he was raised to Heaven.

In verse 1, Jesus is saying that God has glorified him by choosing him as one of God's messengers to do God's will, which has glorified God.
In verse 2, Jesus tells that all that he has been able to do (miracles) have been authorized by God. Jesus (pbuh) also states that his power to work miracles comes from God as he says in Matthew 12:28. In this verse Jesus says he "cast out devils by the spirit of God." Other prophets were allowed to perform miracles with the authorization of God, in I Kings 17:20-24 is the story of how Prophet Elijah (pbuh) prayed and asked God to bring a boy back to life.

Moses (pbuh) and many other prophets worked miracles, but the children of Israel who had the Torah never considered them God. Many people in the past and in the future will perform acts that appear to be miracles. The chapters in the Bible called Act describe "miracles" performed by people who never called themselves prophets or God (Acts 19:11-13). Both Christians and Muslims believe that the false Messiah, the Anti-Christ, will perform many "miracles" but of course they will not be authorized by God. These "miracles" will not make the false Messiah a Prophet or God.

Those who do God's will and follow God's teaching will be given eternal life in Paradise.
In verse 3, Jesus is teaching his followers that there is only one true God, and Jesus is a messenger that God has sent to them (John 9:17).
Again in verse 4, Jesus says that by completing the work that God has given him, Jesus has told the people of God's glory.
In verse 5, Jesus is asking God for his reward since Jesus is one part of God's plan, which God had made before He created the Universe.

In verse 12, Jesus is saying that while he was on Earth he kept the believers (that God gave him) praising God alone, except Judas (Son of Perdition) who was crucified because he was unfaithful to Jesus. This was written in God's plan, (Psalms 34:19- 21).

Verse 12 describes Judas' betrayal of Jesus. When each prophet spoke, he used the language of his people that they are all familiar with. This means their words and meanings. Prophets also taught in the language of their people so no special interpretation was need. In John 20:17, Jesus (pbuh) makes his relationship with God very clear. Jesus (pbuh) is saying that he is a human being as they are, as they share the same "father" and "God". He is describing the word father to also mean God.

God promised, "For it is written", Matthew 4:6, that the angels will protect Jesus totally from harm. In this verse, it says that the angels will protect Jesus so that even his foot will not be harmed by a stone.

In Psalm 34:15-20, God shows how complete His protection will be of Jesus and how complete will be His punishment of those who will not obey God (see also Proverbs 21:18).

In Psalm 34:15, God promises that He will see the righteous and hear their cries. God heard Jesus as related to us in John 17 and raised Jesus to heaven.

In Psalm 34: 16, God says that He will not listen to the cries of those who do evil just as He did; not help Judas when he was on the cross and he asked God "why have you forsaken me." Psalm 34: 17 is again related to Jesus, as God saved him from those who wanted to crucify him.
In Psalm 34:18, Jesus felt sorrow for so many people of his time; because they were saying that Jesus was God or the Son of God. Jesus tried to convince the people that he was prophet and not God. Jesus did not have any sins and was not broken hearted because he had not made mistakes, but Jesus was broken hearted and felt sorrowful for those who were not following God's laws.

Psalm 34:20 shows how God will protect Jesus and let no one break any of his bones. Nailing someone to the cross would break bones.

In Psalm 34:21, the evil deed of Judas was responsible for his own crucifixion because Judas wanted to have Jesus crucified. As in verse 22, God saved Jesus and punished .Judas. This verse is not just for .Jesus, but states that all of God's servants shall be saved and those who do evil shall be punished.

Again in Psalm 20:6, God clearly says that He will save "His anointed (messenger). God will hear him (Jesus) and God will save Jesus with His (God's) right hand.

In John 17 verse 13, Jesus says he is going to heaven very soon ("now") and that all who obey God will receive the same reward as Jesus has received ("my joy fulfilled in themselves").

This Chapter speaks of the last hours of Jesus' time on Earth, before he is raised to Heaven. In Verse 12; Jesus is saying that while he was on Earth he kept the believers (that God gave him) praising God alone, except Judas (Son of Perdition) who was crucified, because he was unfaithful to Jesus.
St. John 17: 1-15

1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
2 As thou has given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou has given him.
3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own selfwith the glory which I had with thee before the world was.
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me, and they have kept thy word.
7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy father kept through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled.
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

Other Prophets also were allowed to perform Miracles with the authorization of God
1 Kings 17: 20-24
20 And he cried unto the LORD, and said: 'O LORD my God, hast Thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?'
21 And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said: 'O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul come back into him.'
22 And the LORD hearkened unto the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came back into him, and he revived.
23 And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the upper chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother; and Elijah said: 'See, thy son liveth.'
24 And the woman said to Elijah: 'Now I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.' 

Acts 19, describe "Miracles" performed by people who never called themselves prophets or God.
Acts 19: 11-12.
11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:
12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseased departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them,

Jesus is teaching his followers that there is only one true God, (Allah) and Jesus is a messenger that God has sent to them
John 9: 17-19
17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is prophet.
18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight.
19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? How then doth he now see?

Judas (son of Perdition) was crucified because he was unfaithful to Jesus, This was written in God's plan. Psalms 34: 19-21.

12 Come, ye children, hearken unto me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD,
13 Who is the man that desireth life, and loveth days, that he may see good therein?
14 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
15 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
16 The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry.
17 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
18 They cried, and the LORD heard, and delivered them out of all their troubles.
19 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart, and saveth such as are of a contrite spirit.
20 Many are the ills of the righteous, but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
21 He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is broken.
22 Evil shall kill the wicked; and they that hate the righteous shall be held guilty.
23 The LORD redeemeth the soul of His servants; and none of them that take refuge in Him shall be desolate. 

Jesus is saying that he is a human being as they are, as they share the same "father" and "God". He is describing the word father which also means God. John 20: 16-17.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rab-bo-ni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my father and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

John 8: 39-40 
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of god; this did not Abraham.

God promised that, the angels will protect Jesus totally from harm
St. Matthew 4:6
6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

God shows how complete His protection will be of Jesus, and how complete will he His punishment of those who will not obey God.
Proverbs 21: 18.
18 The wicked is a ransom for the righteous; and the faithless cometh in the stead of the upright. 

God clearly says that He will save "His anointed" (Messenger)!! God will hear him (Jesus) and will save him with His (God's) right hand.
Psalms 20: 7-10.
7 Now know I that the LORD saveth His anointed; He will answer him from His holy heaven with the mighty acts of His saving right hand.
8 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will make mention of the name of the LORD our God.
9 They are bowed down and fallen; but we are risen, and stand upright.
10 Save, LORD; Jet the King answer us in the day that we call.

Jesus states that his power to work miracles comes from God as he says
Matthew 12: 28
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.


Matthew 28:19 does not appear in any ancient manuscripts prior to the fourth century.  So how did it worm its way into so many seeminglyreputable Bibles ?  It must be remembered thatfour hundred hears after Christ's time - was aliteral cauldron of controversy regarding thedoctrine of the trinity.  

The Romans had taken over Christianity and wereeagerly attempting to get Christ to fit into their god-likefigures.  The God that Christ worshipped was totally tossed away - in favor of turning God's soninto a Graeco-Roman god.   The pagans in the empire would be totally in love with that idea.

And so Christ was marketed and packaged by Romeas a dualhead - trinity god.  Even his name was changed from "Jehoshua" into "Iesous" (hail Zeus)and his birthday was made to coincide with all thesun-gods of that period (Dec 25). Christ's passover was swapped out for the springtime festival called "Easter" - after the fertility goddess Easter (Ishtar).The eggs and the rabbits are a sure hint.

As a result of all these changes, Rome felt the needto alter the Bible to make things more palatable tothe Christians.  "Correctores" were hired to addscriptures, delete scriptures and alter scripturesin the Bible.  It was a tremendous task.  And theBible was indeed altered in more than two thousandplaces.   And that number jumps to nine thousand times,if you add in the seven thousand times that the name"Jehovah" was removed and replaced by "LORD".
Well, Matthew 28:19  appears to be a later insertion,or spurious scripture that was added almost 400years after Christ walked the earth.

"There is a verse in Matthew - Matthew 28:19 that has a problem.  The problem is - there are no manuscripts that contain this verse prior to the fourth century! There is absolutely NO manuscript in any language that contains it prior to the Trinitarian controversies. And the wording of this verse seems to speak in the language of this period, (4th Century) rather than from the time when Jesus spoke. Yet it seems there are few who are willing to weigh the evidence against this passage because of the weight it carries in Church tradition. The verse we will focus on is Matthew 28:19, and the Trinity baptism formula!"-Analysis of Matthew 28:19 - in A study of the Text of the New Testament   Randall Duane Hughes 

Before the coming of Kingdom of God i.e. Islam, John the baptist used to baptise with water until the time of Jesus son of Mary.
Some christians argue that Jesus also baptised as per Matthew 28:19 with water certainly John (Gospel of John) doesn't writes that Jesus baptised with holy Ghost. However Matthew writes that John the baptist prophesised the following:
Mathew 3:11 John says that I baptize the people with water, but this future Prophet (Muhammad) will baptize them with the Holy Ghost (Angel Gabriel who brought the QURAN) and fire (the battles that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) fought against those who tried to destroy Islam and the Muslims.)  


Quran 39:46. Say: "O Allah. Creator of the heavens and the earth! Knower of all that is hidden and open! it is Thou that wilt judge between Thy Servants in those matters about which they have differed."
