in response to reader comment: More on Why Quran is No Substitue for the Hebrew HOLY BIBLE

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Jun 11, 2010 at 07:27

Hi Mr. M Tovey,

Let us discuss first the commonalities between us.

I believe that Jesus is currently residing in heaven and he will come back to fulfill promises as mentioned in the scriptures. All of these are sanctified through Quran.

Where I differentitate with you is regarding the concept of Resurrection. I am ready to believe you on resurrection if and only if you can provide solid historical evidence to me.

None of the famous Jewish philosophers or historians who were contemporaries of Jesus mentioned about Jesus's resurrection and the same is also followed by Roman historians.

Now the four gospels in Question have all been organized around the time of Emperror Constantine so what proof do you have that Constantine or other Paulisians did not manipulate the letters from Peter and John ?

Another question to you. I have observed that Christian evangelsits like you put their whole belief system on the question of resurrection of Jesus Christ after his death.

Kindly tell me why it is so ? Do not you think that there is a chance of losing one's faith if some how histroical proof can be found that Resurrection did not happen ?

Another point here . I would like to say here that Ahmedinajad is not saying anything regarding the destruction of Jewish people. Whatever you hear in the West is misquoting his words and a deliberate attempt to create enmity against Islam. Islamic republic of Iran hosts one of the largest number of Jews in the world.

Jews have been living in Iran since the time of Daniel and persian people have provided great help towards the Jewish people. You cannot deny that it was the Emperror Cyrus the great who helped end the Babylonian exile . Now tell me what the Iranian people have got in return from Jews and fellow Evangelicals liek you ? It is absolutely nothing.

Submitting....
