My dear salman I'm not a Christian and I care less about what it says in the Bible.

But wait it says in the Qur'an that Allah the God of the Arabs (Q14:4) "wa ma 'arsalna min rasulan ila bilisani qawmuhu."

Oh silly me you know no Arabic! Urdu? It would not help you here.

Your Arabian god is saying that He sends a prophet only in the language of his people. The language of the Arabs and Muhammad, the Arabian warlord and caravan raider, is Arabic which makes knowing Arabic very central to islam.

I do not study the Bible but as far as I know it does not say any where in the Bible that Jesus was sent to the Syro-Aramaic speakers. So your claim here is bogus.

And by the way: the confused theologians Allah and his rasul calim that Jesus was a prophet and a God. Go figure. And wanna know more?
