Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Who is the witness of Bible(s)?

Submitted by Richard Lion heart (United States), May 25, 2006 at 21:42

Nuray you asked a few questions which could have been answered with a simple research. But I'm going to give you some answers.

1. Who wrote the books in the Bible? The books in the Bible have many authors. The five books of Moses were written by Moses. The New Testament was written by Jesus appostles, just to name a few

Who are the witnesses? Aaron, Josuah, Miriam and many others were the witnesses of Moses. Paul who wrote several NT books had Titus, Barnabas and many others has witnesses.

2. How did he live? How did He make money? Jesus lived like a first century Jew. His life consisted of working, helping his family, give charity and study the torah. Jesus was a carpenter by trade. Just like his earthly guardian Joseph. When He started His ministry, he depended on the good will of other people.

3. Why was Jesus single? Jesus came to bring us salvation, to redeem us. Getting married and have kids was not part of his mission. His mission is well defined in the book of Isaiah.

Isaiah 5: 53
"But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed."

4. What can Jesus tell someone who lost a child? Jesus is the author of life. Jesus gave that child life in the first place. Jesus can tell and do a lot for that person

"But about the Son he says… ‘In the beginning, O Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.'" Hebrews 1:8a, 10-12

I can find many historical characters like Muhammad: Gingiskhan, Attila the hun, Nero ect..... Muahammad raped, looted and committed mass murder. He exterminated the Christian and Jewish communities of Arabia. There noting special about him. Just another ruthless man ready to do anything for power and sex.
