Jesus was Crucified

Isaiah 53 never mentions Jesus dying on the cross.

Sohail

Read again:

Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted
.
(Isaiah 53:4 NIV) emphasis added

This parallels with this verse:

you must not leave his body on the tree overnight. Be sure to bury him that same day, because anyone who is hung on a tree is under God's curse. You must not desecrate the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance. (Deuteronomy 21:23 NIV) emphasis added

The Jews believed that Jesus was cursed because he was hung on a tree (or cross) overnight. And Isaiah says that "we considered him stricken (or cursed) by God."

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.
(Isaiah 53:5 NIV) emphasis added

Pierced by the nails.

He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
(Isaiah 53:7 NIV) emphasis added

This says that Jesus was to die which is contrary to the Qu'ran.

He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth
(Isaiah 53:9 NIV) emphasis added

Jesus died with two criminals. He was buried in the tomb of a rich man:

As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. 58Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. 59Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away. (Matthew 27:58-60 NIV) emphasis added

Read Isaiah 53 again. It says that Jesus was to carry our sins and iniquities. Jesus was to die for our sins. Yet Muhammad says that Jesus did not die for our sins. Who is in error? All the Prophets? Or Muhammad who comes and says that they were all wrong?

And I recall posting many verses that show that Jesus and those around him said that he was the Son of God.

May God Bless You All
