Get this through your head: Jesus is not the son of God.

Sohail

My Bible says otherwise:

Again the high priest asked him, "Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?"

62"I am," said Jesus. "And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven." (Mark 14:61-62) emphasis added (huge emphasis on the Son of the Blessed one)

The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God."

64"Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. "But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven." (Matthew 26:63-64) emphasis added

70They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?"
He replied, "You are right in saying I am." (Luke 22:70) emphasis added

The Gospels testify against you. Let's see where else when it is directly said that Jesus is the Son of God.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) emphasis added

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 30This is the one I meant when I said, 'A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.' 31I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel."

32Then John gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. 33I would not have known him, except that the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is he who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.' 34I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God." (John 1:29-34) emphasis added

41The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah" (that is, the Christ). (John 1:41) emphasis added

Then Nathanael declared, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel." (John 1:49) emphasis added

"Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. 32He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end." (Luke 1:30-33) emphasis added

When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened 22and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased." (Luke 3:21-22) emphasis added

At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased." (Mark 1:9-11)

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. 17And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:16-17) emphasis added

25The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."

26Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he." (John 4:25-26) emphasis added

Jesus said himself that he was THE Son of God, not 'a', 'the'. He was the Messiah/Christ, he was the Lamb of God, the Holy One of God, the King of Israel, and Immanuel. Would a mere prophet have the power to forgive sins and to take the sins away from the world? You accept Jesus as the Messiah, then you must also accept him as the Son of God. But that is contrary to Islamic teachings. Which is correct? All the prophets side by Christ and Muhammed claims they had it all wrong (in other words, God changed his mind and the Bible is corrupted).

Christ not only directly said he was the Messiah, he said he was the Resurrection, the Life, the Way, and etc. Who is this but God??? Stop ignoring what Jesus said. If Jesus was not the Son of God, who was? If Jesus was not the Messiah, then who was?

May God Bless You All
