In fact, in a relatively recent Christianity Today article, Wheaton College professor James Lewis recommends that Christians “seek Muslim prayer partners and together beseech the true, one and only God to have mercy on us” (“Does God Hear Muslims’ Prayers?” Christianity Today, February 4, 2002, p. 31). Thank you for this wonderful paper. <> 3 0 obj Now if you refer to the Quran and see what some of those writers refer to, you’ll find that there are only three verses in the Quran that speaks about changing the word of God.

However, there are wordings and passages that point to the original translator working in an Islamic milieu and show him reacting to it. In this sense, there is the promise that the word of God was ultimately preserved. 0000002500 00000 n These truths are essential to the Christian faith, so concentrate on the Gospel of John. This appears in surah 4 verse 82: “Then do they not reflect upon the Quran? It means the essence of His revelation will ultimately be preserved and would be protected from change. Ar. In a 2002 issue of Newsweek, for instance, religion editor Kenneth Woodward asserts that “mere tolerance of other religions is not enough” and that “even the acceptance of other religions as valid paths to God is insufficient” (“How Should We Think About Islam?” Newsweek, December 31, 2001 / January 7, 2002, p. 104). Other scriptures that are mentioned in the Quran include the Zabure revealed to Prophet David and the Suhuf revealed to Prophet Abraham. In any religion, anyone can change the word of God on paper. Another example: is the book of Hebrew actually written by Paul or someone else? If VA13 is a rough contemporary of Sinai Arabic 154 (as it appears to be), it might be helpful to further contextualize VA13's (or H's) awareness of the Qur'an. The author uses Qur'anic quotations alongside scriptural testimonies to buttress his defense of the Trinity; in other words, the first discussions between Muslims and Christians had to do with the scriptures as they related to Qur'anic claims. Thank you for your paper. When evangelicals capitulate and attempt to soften the offense of the gospel in this way, they blur the lines between the god of Islam and the God of the Bible. “Hmm, I see,” I silently said to myself. The Quran mentions the Torah, the Zabur ("Psalms") and the Injil ("Gospel") as being revealed by God to the prophets Moses, David and Jesus respectively in the same way the Quran was revealed to Muhammad, the final prophet and messenger of God according to Muslims. Notice here that the promise made that His words will be preserved does not cover the promise to preserve the words of human beings. (2) Kashouh varies between referring to different scribes and different hands (writing styles), and he admits that scribes sometimes imitated the writing styles of earlier centuries, if that is what they were copying from. I wish you well with your ongoing research. Arabic scribal techniques are way out of my field, and the matter of the four scribes, at least as presented by Kashouh, is something I really can't get my head round. Clearly, Islam and Christianity are mutually exclusive. Instead, say Muslims, Jesus was but one of thousands of prophets sent by Allah, the greatest of them being Mohammed. The “Gospel” of Peter: A Rebuttal to Islamic Rejection of the Apostle Paul Doug Clark* Introduction In the December 2010 issue of the International Bulletin of Missionary Research, Yale professor Lamin Sanneh reviewed a new book on a very old and obscure subject: Sergius Bahira (Sanneh 2010). endstream endobj 202 0 obj <>stream What might be the reasons why Matthew was translated first, rather than Mark which scholars tell us was written before Matthew. This Injil is described by the Qur’an as one of the four Islamic holy books which was revealed by God, the others being the Zabur (possibly the Psalms), the Tawrat (the Torah), and the Qur’an itself. In fact, Islam today is the most powerful system on earth for the destruction of biblical truth and Christianity—thousands of Christians are dying under Islamic persecution, especially in the Middle East, Africa, Indonesia, and other parts of Asia. Indeed, the challenge of deciphering the process of the different scribal hands is complex. 0000004802 00000 n All rights reserved. 16:22-33 were produced by Se which were then copied by Sa, as proposed by Kashouh? 0000000756 00000 n The Qur'an teaches that Jesus is the Messiah, and it never teaches that Muhammad is the Messiah: It was actually a pun, since Matthew is often referred to as "the first gospel" as it comes first in the NT canon, and at the same time the version I am writing about is reckoned to be the first gospel translation in Arabic. And Muslims believe that this is precisely one of the great benefits of the Quran as the last revelation, which has been totally protected, that restores and clarifies the word of God that was given to different prophets because we believe in the unity of the mission of all of these prophets. Each one of them appears in a different meaning depending on the context of the surah. That is not the word of God, that’s their own biographies.

It stands witness because it bears witness, as Mawdudi says, to the word of God contained in those previous scriptures and helps sort it out from interpretations and commentaries that were later added to them. According to the Koran, if a person follows Islam and does enough good deeds to outweigh the bad, Allah may allow him to enter paradise, but even then he can’t be certain.
