BBC Documentary: Did Jesus Die On the Cross?

Epigraph:

And their saying, ‘We did kill the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah;’ whereas they slew him not, nor crucified him, but he was made to appear to them like one crucified; and those who differ therein are certainly in a state of doubt about it; they have no definite knowledge thereof, but only follow a conjecture; and they did not convert this conjecture into a certainty. (Al Quran 4:158)

  1. The only way the different accounts of canonical Gospels about crucifixion and resurrection, can be harmonized is to read in them that Jesus was put on the cross, but survived and did not die on the cross.

  2. He did not die on the cross as the claimed, their claimed that jesus is the son of Allah, if so how he aloud his beloved son to be crucified?.

    Dear Zia Shah.

    This is my suggestion to all Muslim according to Allah as following;

    In Al Quran, and Bible there are some verses which we can not understand clearly. Only Allah know it.

    He is the One who has revealed to you the Book (the Qur’an). Out of it there are verses that are Muhkamat (of established meaning), which are the principal verses of the Book, and some others are Mutashabihat (whose definite meanings are unknown). Now those who have perversity in their hearts go after such part of it as is mutashabih, seeking (to create) discord, and searching for its interpretation (that meets their desires), while no one knows its interpretation except Allah; QS 3;7

    Regarding to this issue;Did Jesus Die On the Cross?

    In Al Quran said that Jesus did not die.
    In Bible said that Jesus was death.

    If we still try to claim that Jesus did not die on the cross, I believe that it will hurt, harm our brother’s feeling.

    I think it is much benefits if we use our energy, time and knowledge to improve the millions Muslim’s life from misery,suffering and poverty, instead of criticizing the Christian’s beliefs.

    Can you agree that?

    All love

  4. Dear A Latif, watch the Indian Government Movie on this subject, before I suggest other readings to you,like “Jesus in India” by the Promised Messiah Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.

  5. To: alatif

    Peace be upon you.
    Muslims are only explaining to christains of the things they don’t know of their being lost of the right path to Islam, cause its an obligation to every muslim to tell to those who are not believers of ALLAH s.w.t that they were being lost and that the satan (ibliss) is on their back and very happy, cause he have many creatures of ALLAH s.w.t. wiyh in yhe fire of hell. And maybe you just watch if you will be astrayed by the satan(ibliss). Ask forgiveness from ALLAH s.w.t. Peace

    I think it is much better and a huge benefits if we use our energy, time and knowledge to improve the life of millions Muslim around the world from misery,suffering and poverty, instead of criticizing the Christian’s beliefs.

    You do not agree that?

    With all my love.
    What ever we do, be done with love of God (Cor.16:13).
    If we love each other, we can achieve a big works for mankind
    but if we hate each other, will be destroyed completely
    So let we love each other, Allah will bless us all

  7. @ Dear Zafar, thanks for your offering, but I tell you this;

  8. Muslims should know the right and wrong by the study of Quran. Then pass the truth with love to non Muslims whoever wants to know the truth. There is no need to hammer anything into any one’s head forcefully.
    In present day, we need to teach and preach constantly. It is an obligation. It is the duty of every Muslim, by order of the Quran. Muslims are not start any holy war but they must spread the mwhich should be as per teachings of the Quuessage peacefully, with wisdom.
    If whole nation (say Christians) are misled and they are misleading others, including many Muslims, then what the
    Muslims are to do? They also need to spread the right message

    What an author; who descends His books addressing to the mankind and still prefers to keep some verses “not-understandable by His readers”?

    I do agree with you.

    If we talk about wisdom.

    1.Is it wise to criticize other brothers, when our home is messy?

    Millions Muslim are suffering, dieing, died, homeless, and poverty, they live in misery, because they are misled by false scholars and the False scholar are still misleading people to believe idols.

    2.Is it wise to criticize our brothers home where we live in their home, whereas our home is messy?

    This is my thought.

    With my love

    I do not have a verse to answers you question, this is my thought.
    .
    I think, why God sent down that verses, just to remain people after prophet’s death.

    So if you do not understand God’s verse, do not seek (to create) discord, and searching for its interpretation.
    I think, only prophet could explains it.
    Allah is all Wiser.

    All love

  12. I wonder if BBC will ever have the guts to make a documentary criticising the Koran or the Muslim claim that “it has not been changed” or “it is the best book ever” and other assorted praises for a book which looks like a lot of written pages thrown in the air and then assembled haphazardly without having BBC headquarters firebombed.
    What is it about the Cross and the Resurrection that gets Muslims all gaga? Is it because starting from Mohammed and down the ages they have tried to debunk the FACT that Christ rose from the dead and HAVE NOT GOTTEN ANYWHERE

    • Ashok: What do you mean ‘have not gotten anywhere’? How many of the 1.5 billion or so Muslims come from Christian background? (all of Egypt for instance) A large part I would say, including myself that is. Therefore the Holy Qur’an has guided many of us ex Christians. (some in this generation and more in previous ones). Alhamdolillah – All praise is due to Allah, who guided us.

  13. Rafiq A. Tschannen, Do not try to confuse. MUSLIMS HAVE TRIED FOR CENTURIES to debunk the FACT OF THE RESURRECTION & have NOT GOTTEN ANYWHERE is what I posted. Where did the Koran “guiding 1.5 billion” from “Christian backgrounds” come from? So whoever and whatever “guided” you does not wash here?
    & Do you think that the BBC will ever have the guts to make a documentary criticising the Koran or the Muslim claim that “it has not been changed” or “it is the best book ever” and other assorted praises for a book which looks like a lot of written pages thrown in the air and then assembled haphazardly without having BBC headquarters firebombed?
