The Sura 4:82 Challenge To All Muslims.
When Jesus entered Capernaum he healed the slave of a centurion. Did the centurion come personally to request Jesus for this?
a Yes (Matthew 8:5).
b No. He sent some elders of the Jews and his friends (Luke 7:3, 6).
Apart from Jesus did anyone else ascend to heaven?
a No (John 3:13).
b Yes. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven (2 Kings 2:11).
Was Jesus body wrapped in spices before burial in accordance with Jewish burial customs?
a Yes and his female disciples witnessed his burial (John 19:39-40).
b No. Jesus was simply wrapped in a linen shroud. Then the women bought and prepared spices so that they may go and anoint him [Jesus] (Mark 16:1).
When did the women buy the spices?
a After the sabbath was past (Mark 16:1).
b Before the sabbath. The women prepared spices and ointments. Then, on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment (Luke 23:55 to 24:1).
At what time of day did the women visit the tomb?
a Toward the dawn (Matthew 28:1).
b When the sun had risen (Mark 16:2).
What was the purpose for which the women went to the tomb?
a To anoint Jesus body with spices (Mark 16:1;Luke 23:55 to 24:1).
b To see the tomb. Nothing about spices here (Matthew 28:1).
c For no specified reason. In this gospel the wrapping with spices had been done before the sabbath (John 20:1).
A large stone was placed at the entrance of the tomb. Where was the stone when the women arrived?
a They saw that the stone was Rolled back (Mark 16:4). They found the stone rolled away from the tomb (Luke 24:2). They saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb (John 20:1)
b As the women approached, an angel descended from heaven, rolled away the stone, and conversed with the women. Matthew made the women witness the spectacular rolling away of the stone (Matthew 28:1-6).
Did anyone tell the women what happened to Jesus body?
a- Yes. A young man in a white robe (Mark 16:5). Two men . . . in dazzling apparel later described as angels (Luke 24:4 and 24:23). An angel - the one who rolled back the stone (Matthew 16:2). In each case the women were told that Jesus had risen from the dead (Matthew 28:7; Mark 16:6; Luke 24:5 footnote).
b- No. Mary met no one and returned saying, They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him (John 20:2).
When did Mary Magdelene first meet the resurrected Jesus? And how did she react?
a- Mary and the other women met Jesus on their way back from their first and only visit to the tomb. They took hold of his feet and worshipped him (Matthew 28:9).
b- On her second visit to the tomb Mary met Jesus just outside the tomb. When she saw Jesus she did not recognise him. She mistook him for the gardener. She still thinks that Jesus body is laid to rest somewhere and she demands to know where. But when Jesus said her name she at once recognised him and called him Teacher. Jesus said to her, Do not hold me . . . (John 20:11 to 17).
Was baby Jesuss life threatened in Jerusalem?
a- Yes, so Joseph fled with him to Egypt and stayed there until Herod died (Matthew 2:13 - 23).
b- No. The family fled nowhere. They calmly presented the child at the Jerusalem temple according to the Jewish customs and returned to Galilee (Luke 2:21-40).
Starjade concludes: I could continue. But the point being made is just because you believe a tale being writ so it might be believed that does not make that tale to be true. If it had been true then why the contradictions that argue against those very words you believe. Hardly a mistake when so many different tales of the same things vary.
You can believe there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow but if you ever find that end of the rainbow and dig it up then you will be disappointed.
