So my dear thetruth did you really read the Gospel of Thomas? I doubt it. ...why should I believe that you can read Coptic (the extant Gospel of Thomas is available in Coptic) and why would your Allah plagiarize such a story? Oh I forgot your Allah plagiarized other stories from the Greeks and Syrians and they are: 1. "The seven sleepers of Ephesus" and he called it ahl al-kahf. 2. "The Romance of Alexander" and he called it the story of "Dhul Qarnain." And Muhammad had the audacity to call such fiction the word of his Allah. So much for plagiarism. So there is no reason for me to believe that such above story is no more than what German historians call: Heilgeschite (sp?) or sacred (not real history) history.

I'm not a biblical scholar so I cannot tell you what percentage of Jesus' saying are in the four Gospels but you claimed that they are only 20% of what he said. Provide us with your evidence. Tendentious Islamic web sites do not count as evidence, poor quality Pakistani web sites do not count as evidence. Books form Biblical scholars would count as evidence.

Now back to Jesus being God in the Qur'an the two words" Bi idhin Allah" or Allah permission does not mean very much as Jesus can _create_ life albeit biidhin Allah (big deal as I said) therefore he is God.
