Asked: Question: Why does the Quran contradict this theological truth (this fulfilled prophecy)?

A. The Qur'an recognizes that Jesus of Nazareth is a Prophet [1]

B. The Qur'an recognizes that the Gospels contain some theological truth [2][3][4]

1. Jesus of Nazareth (the Prophet) Himself said (in the Gospels) that He would be executed by the means of crucifixion and that He would be resurrected from the dead [5]

2. Jesus of Nazareth (the Prophet) was executed by the means of crucifixion and He was resurrected from the dead (as recorded in the Gospels) [6][7]

3. Therefore, the execution of Jesus of Nazareth and the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth from the dead (the prophecy produced by the Prophet) is a theological truth (because the prophecy was fulfilled)

4. The Quran contradicts this fulfilled prophecy (this theological truth) [8]

[1] (He said: "I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet;) The Koran 19:30, Yusuf Ali

[2] (Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.) The Koran 5:47, Yusuf Ali

[3] (Say: "O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord." It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Faith.) The Koran 5:68, Yusuf Ali

[4] ("Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures),- in the law and the Gospel;- for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper.") The Qur'an 7:157, Yusuf Ali

[5] (for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him. And when he is killed, after three days he will rise….You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.) Mark 9:31, Matthew 26:2, The New Testament, English Standard Version (2001)

[6] (And it was the third hour when they crucified him. And Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed his last. Pilate was surprised to hear that he should have already died. And summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he was already dead. And when he learned from the centurion that he was dead, he granted the corpse to Joseph.) Mark 15:25, 37, 44-45, The New Testament, English Standard Version (2001)

[7] (And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.) Mark 16:5-7, The New Testament, English Standard Version (2001)

[8] (And because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah s (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allh," – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but it appeared so to them [the resemblance of s (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man)], and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. s (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) ]: But Allh raised him [s (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allh is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise.) The Quran 4:157-158, King Fahd Complex for the Printing of the Holy Qur'an


Why does the bible contradict itself all the time?

Quran recognizes Jesus Christ as a ture human prophet. And looking at the red letter
Bible, Jesus also never said he was God. He has clearly said nobody knows the date
of Day of Judgement except for GodAlmighty. Quran says the same and also that
he will come again.

So wait until he comes. This argument is needless.

Above all Quran forces us to use our God given faculties of observation, logic and rational thought. Drawing conclusions two orders removed from the actual words is not the way to go. The way I and millions of Muslims like me approach the issue is pretty straightforward and made possible by God gifting us the methodology of interpreting His revelations that are completely free of contradictions in spite of the comical attempts to prove otherwise.

If our interpretation of a verse is contradicting another verse of the Quran then either our interpretation of the first verse is incorrect or our interpretation of the second verse is incorrect. And of course there is always the possibility that both of our interpretations are wrong. Hence time to seek another interpretation

1) Wrong. Jesus did not say I will be crucified.He said Son of Man. Son of man can be anyone.

2) How can you say with confident that is true? There is zero evidence a man named Jesus ever existed let alone his crucifixion.

3) Agian how can you assume bible is correct? Your "theological truth" doesn't hold any water.

4) Yes because Quran is not a copy of the bible.
