We Muslims specifically Ahmadiyya peaceful Muslim believe in Jesus, Mary, Moses, Adam and Abraham; as also other messengers/prophets of G-d (Bahaullah excluded) and their life accounts because Quran mentions them, strictly as mentioned by Quran. And other narratives (like OT-Torah or NT-Bible and Hadith,Shia or Sunni or any other traditions/sayings) that don’t contradict with Quran.

“In that view Jesus is not fully God fully man. Didn’t die for sins of the world. Wasn’t raised.”

Because that mars the personality and Character of Jesus, making him an imperfect man and god Jesus never was. We cannot, emphasis cannot, believe in such an imperfect god as depicted in NT Bible, please.

Sorry, no disrespect intended to anybody or anybody’s faith. Everybody is entitled to believe in any faith/religion with reason or absolute no reason. They must to continue to believe, as they want and wish to.

Right, please?

Please name them as Jacob/Israel had only twelve sons. Where does come another one to make them thirteen, please:

Jacob’s twelve sons, named in Genesis, were Reuben, Simeon,LeviJudah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, IssacharZebulun,Joseph, and Benjamin. His only daughter mentioned in Genesis is Dinah. The twelve sons became the progenitors of the “Tribes of Israel”.

Sorry, G-d does not do any deception, it is people who got deceived from a situation.

Jesus did not die a cursed death on the the Cross, as Jews of that time had planned and or ordinary Christians thought of . Jesus survived miraculously against all odds, he was treated in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea by physicians like Nicodemus with the prescriptions of treatment already by told by Jesus to him.

As to what happened at that time, please read my posts #1#5 , #6 , #8 and #9 in another thread , please.

    Meher Baba (1894-1969)
    According to Indian spiritual master Meher Baba, when Jesus was crucified, he did not die physically. But, he entered the state of Nirvikalp Samadhi (the I-am-God state without bodily consciousness). On the third day, he again became conscious of his body, and he travelled secretly in disguise eastward with some apostles, most importantly with Bartholomew and Thaddeus, to India. This was called Jesus’ resurrection. After reaching India, Jesus travelled further east to Rangoon, in Burma, where he remained for some time. He then went north to Kashmir, where he settled. After Jesus’s spiritual work was completed, Jesus subsequently dropped his body, and the body was buried by the Two Apostles in Harvan, at Kan Yar, district of Kashmir.[50]Holger Kersten, 1981[edit]
    In 1981, Holger Kersten, a German writer on esoteric subjects popularised the subject in his Christ Lived in India.[51] Kersten’s ideas were among various expositions of the theory critiqued by Günter Grönbold in Jesus in Indien. Das Ende einer Legende(Munich, 1985).[52] Wilhelm Schneemelcherstates that the work of Kersten (which builds on Ahmad and The Aquarian Gospel) is fantasy and has nothing to do with historical research.[11]Schneemelcher states that Kersten combines elements from various previous authors such as Notovitch, Ahmadiyya beliefs, and Levi Dowling.[11]Gerald O’Collins also states that Kersten’s work is simply the repackaging of a legend for consumption by the general public.[12]

    Among texts cited by Kersten, following Andreas Faber-Kaiser, is the third khanda of the Pratisarga Parvan in the Bhavishya Mahapurana which contains discussion of “Isa Masih” and Muhammed. However Indologists such as Grönbold note that this section postdates not just the Quran,[53] but also the Mughals. Hiltebeitel (2009) establishes 1739 as the very earliest possible date for the section.[54]

In 1922 Swami Abhedananda, the founder of Vedanta Society of New York 1897 and the author of several books, went to Himalayas on foot and reached Tibet, where he studied Buddhistic philosophy and Lamaism. He was one of the skeptics who tried to debunk Nicholas Notovitch and disprove the existence of the manuscript about Jesus in India. However, when he reached Hemis monastery he found the manuscript which was a Tibetan translation of the original scrolls written in Pali. The lama said that it was a copy and the original was in a monastery at Marbour near Lhasa. After Abhedananda’s death in 1939, one of his disciples inquired about the documents at the Hemis monastery, but was told they disappeared.[40][41]

As per the Christian core creed Jesus came to this world to die a cursed death for atonement of their sins and to save them. This means his death on Cross was a suicide one.
Wasn’t it, please?

Regards

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

#8 paarsurrey 

But being a god, as per the Christianity, Jesus himself decided that he himself should die on the Cross, so definitely it was a suicide case. It also makes him sinful having committed a suicide, so an innocent man becomes sinful so this suicide was meaningless as as per , Christianity, only death of an innocent man cannot atone their sins. So the sins of the Christianity people remains without atonement and it adherents unsaved by their non-innocent Savior. Right, please
A futile exercise, isn’t it, please?

I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim. In Islam suicide for a normal, intelligent person is a sin. Please read my post

O ye who believe! devour not your property among yourselves by unlawful means, except that you earn by trade with mutual consent. And kill not yourselves. Surely, Allah is Merciful to you.
The Holy Quran – Chapter: 4: An-Nisa’

Muslim scholars and clerics consider suicide forbidden, including suicide bombing.[19][20][21][22][23][24]
The prohibition of suicide has also been recorded in statements of hadith (sayings of Muhammad); for example:
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “He who commits suicide by throttling shall keep on throttling himself in the Hell Fire (forever) and he who commits suicide by stabbing himself shall keep on stabbing himself in the Hell-Fire.”

Jesus was a firm follower of Moses, was trained as such, and remained as such till he died naturally at the age of about 120 years in a “Peaceful Abode” (not in Baghdad- a clarification for the followers of Bahaullah, please.) with fountains where he got refuge/migrated after the event of Crucifixion in which he survived against all odds, please.

#13 paarsurrey

Never-mind, please, though Jesus got Baptized clearly at hands of the John the Baptist and he did not renounce it to become a non-Jew later. So, Jesus was a Jew till he died naturally at the age of about 120 years. He was a man of strong-faith and he never got converted a “Christian” or a “first-Christian” in all his life. I love Jesus and Mary.

We are presently discussing about Bahaullah’s conversion to a “Bahai” or a “first Bahai” in the “pre-Iqan period and or “Iqan-period”. This is the priority here, please.

“just borrowing a few beliefs from Paganism”.

#13 paarsurrey

sorry, these were not just a few unimportant belief., Paul borrowed the core beliefs of the Modern-Christianity from “Paganism”. Instead of making pagans followers of Jesus’ and his teachings, Paul cleverly made the “sheep” followers of Paganism in the name of Jesus. Jesus never authorized Paul to do such wrong acts. It is making Christianity an Anti-Christ, not a trivial thing at all. If truly understood, it makes Paul the “Wolf in the sheep’s clothing”* as Jesus foretold . Right, please?
Sorry, no disrespect intended to anybody’s faith, they may continue believing whatever they want to.

The Pagan Christ

Paul hijacked Jesus’ true teachings and replaced then with the pagan teachings and the “Sheep”, unaware of this, were made pagans. This was all done in the name of Jesus:

“such as virgin birth, deity father, star in the east, raising of the dead, descent into hell, crucifixion, resurrection, and others. Harpur claims that virtually all words and actions attributed to Jesus in the gospels “originated thousands of years before.”[4]

The question arises, was Paul the seed of the Anti-Christ that grew up and spread into the world as Christianity?

Jesus: human sacrifice that never happened

December 9, 2017

The fictional* “human sacrifice” of Jesus for the atonement of Pauline-Christians’ sins neither took pace nor it was ever needed. JW’s including, all the Pauline-Christianity people , who bank for their sins upon Jesus’ “human sacrifice” are as sinful as they would have been without it, please. 

Thread: “Roman executioner’s are not priests,
and the cross is not an altar

Debating Christianity and Religion Forum Index -> Theology, Doctrine, and Dogma

Post 10: 

Mr.X wrote:
Roman executioners are not priests, and the cross is not an altar. So how can Jesus execution be considered a “payment for sin”? In any kind of a theologically legal sense, that is.

If Jesus death is truly a legal “payment for sin” as Paul seems to teach, and as Jehovah’s Witnesses claim, (ransom), then wouldn’t his death have to be performed on the Temple altar, at the hands of a Jewish priest?

1) Is the idea of Jesus death as a “payment for sin” anything more than a metaphor? A metaphor that is useful for Paul and his followers, but not for everyone.

2) Is the notion of Jesus martyrdom as a “payment for sin” Divine revelation? Or theological speculation.

3) Seems Paul wanted to play the legal, Priestly game in regard to Jesus death, so why wouldn’t the legal, priestly rules have disqualified his interpretations?

4) Is Pauline blood-atonement theology legalistic?

5) Would Jesus have approved of such a legalistic approach?

Please address any combination of the above.

One’s points are very reasonable.

Since Jesus survived death on the Cross as he was delivered in near-death position from the Cross, he was treated in the tomb by his friends for his injuries inflicted upon him on the Cross. Jesus remained in hiding, met only to his followers secretly, did not meet the public or the “adulterous Jews” to whom he was to show a sign as promised by him, and went out of Judea lest the Jews catch him and crucify him again.

The Pagan Christ

“The Pagan Christ: Recovering the Lost Light is a 2004 non-fiction book by Canadian writer Tom Harpur (1929-2017), a former Anglican priest, journalist and professor of Greek and New Testament at the University of Toronto, which supports the Christ myth theory.[1] Harpur claims that the New Testament shares a large number of similarities with ancient Egyptian and other pagan religions, that early Church leaders fabricated a literal and human Jesus based on ancient myths, and that we should return to an inclusive and universal religion where the spirit of Christ or Christos lives within each of us.

The book was named the Canadian non-fiction bestseller of the year by both the Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail. It was later released under the title The Pagan Christ: Is Blind Faith Killing Christianity? in the United States by Walker Books and in Australia by Allen Unwin.

Was Jesus born in Nazareth or in Bethlehem ?

November 28, 2017

Was Jesus born in Nazareth (Galilee) or in Bethlehem (Judea) then a small town five or six miles south of Jerusalem?

 “The problem is that the reason for Mary and Joseph to go to Bethlehem is extremely suspect. It claims that there was a census that required every man to go to the land of his ancestors, so Joseph had to take his family to Bethlehem. That just seems absurd. Think about the disruption in everyone’s lives and the businesses and economy of the country if everyone at the same time had to leave his home and business to journey to the land of his ancestors. Why would anyone require that? It doesn’t make any sense.”
