1. I can't prove he said it, I never met him, but don't they say God is one and there is no other god. Well, if Jesus is the son of God, then he is a God himself, or demi-god. This is, I think, against Christian morality.
2. For the Qur'An, please, just read this: "The Qur’an (pronounced [qurˈʔaːn] (help·info); Arabic: القرآن al-qur’ān, literally “the recitation”)"
literally: "THE RECITATION" defines everything: Gabriel came to Muhammad (sav) and told him to write down the words of God. That is the Qur'An.
To finish, no man is allowed to modify the Qur'an when he writes it over. It's always the same text in different books. The Bible, however, was written and sometimes people added some texts, creating anachronisms. If you want to know what that is, read this: http://www.2think.org/hundredsheep/bible/library/anach.shtml or http://www.tektonics.org/af/anachronisms.html.
Peace be upon you.
Can you prove Jesus never said he was the son of God?
Also, Mark, Luke, Matthew, and the others did personally know Jesus. But if I remember correctly, they wrote everything down in their old age so it seemed that they had not known Jesus and only written down stories they had heard.
If you're going to criticize the Bible for being written down from memory, you must take into account the Qur'an. Having also been written from memory (most likely after Muhammad's death).
First off, Jesus never said he was the son of God. A hundred years after they began to speculate such things. Jesus was the son of Maria and Joseph, and was chosen by God to bring the message to humanity. Like I said, most gospel date much later than Jesus' own time, and the ones who wrote it (like Marcus, Mattheus, Lucas, ...) didn't live in his time. They heard stories and wrote it down, somethimes taking passages over from eachother.
Jesus is one of the Islams prophets, just like Moses, David, Eli, ... . Islam is considered as the follower of Judaism and Christianity, but Muslims say that Mohammad or Mahomet is the last prophet sent by god. It's too complicated to write it down...
"And by the way: I'm a muslim, and recognize Jesus as a Messenger of God, but not as His son. Of course, that is for another thread."
^ Found that quote and I have one question... Why do you believe Jesus was a Messenger of God? He claimed to be The Son of God. If he was insane? Why accept him as a prophet at all? If he was lying. Why do you believe he's a prophet? He lied about one of the most sensitive topics known to man.
Why not just believe what he said?
