in response to reader comment: Comparing Christianity with Islam

Submitted by ahmad zafire (United States), Mar 2, 2006 at 02:21

it seems that youre very knowledgable in your holy books. what do u know of the nostic bible. lost for hundreds of years but some sects still believe in it in parts of the world. my point is.... according to the nostic it has a different outlook on jesus then the new testament does. have him more human, even laughing...there are parts in it about his love life with mary magdaline and her being one of the apostles. the early church didnt like this and set out to destroy it which they did or thought so.

now as a muslim, we believe jesus never died on the cross....but so do the nostic its says that jesus separated from his body before the crucifiction and watch from the side........make you want to say hmmmmmm.....what you think?. oh the nostic was christian but followed from john the baptist.
