Proof that Jesus Prayed to Allah

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued

Submitted by Hamilton (United States), Sep 30, 2006 at 15:28

Consider the Gospel of Mark (15:34): And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

As has been noted, "Allah" is a cognate to "El" and "Elohim" (or Eloha as a variant) in the Tanach, so we have Aleph (alif), lamed(lam),hei (ha) although most Arabic doubles the lamed and inserts an additional alif before the end like the Aramaic variant of Jesus.

Therefore, when Jesus prayed, he prayed to Allah. And although Christians treat Jesus as one person of the Trinity, recall John 14:6, "No one can come to the Father except through me." Thus, while Jesus is indesepnsible to a Christian's salvation, that salvation comes by invoking the name Jesus Christ to come into communion with the Father, Elohim/Allah.
