Why Called Issa?


Q4. Why did they call him Issa?


Well, this is a very good question. And I tell you, you see, I think that the Quran distorted many names. Jesus was called Issa. John the Baptist was called Yohanna. You see, Elijah was called Adriss. And so on and so forth. I don't know, it is like say, we say in Arabic Jacob for James. And we say Johanna in Arabic for John. If it is a case then, but I think that it is a distortion of the name of Jesus, because the name of Jesus means the Savior. And thou shall call his name Jesus because He will save His people from the sin. So to distort the name of Jesus is to deny the plan of salvation in many ways, in many ways. This is a denial of the plan of salvation. And by the way, in the Quran there are 99 names for god. Not one of the 99 names that will call God 'Father,' or call God 'love'. If they call God 'Father' then He should have an eternal son. If they call God 'love' then He has to demonstrate His love in the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. So the Quran said that Allah is no father, and Allah is no love. And that concluded the matter. So of course, this is a distortion of the name.

This is interesting. It is weird to think of everyone in different names, but it makes sense because of different languages.

I found his answer to this question interesting. Since muslims do not use the words father or love to describe their god, I wonder what other words they might use? I think that it would be sad to not be able to call God our loving Father.

I don't think that god being associated with love would necessarily relate directly to his son dying on the cross... The reasoning seems a tad bit of stretch. Not to mention, one of Allah's names used in the Qur'an is al-Waddud, or "the Loving" (even if it is only for non-sinners). All it took was a quick google search to find that out.

I did not know that these people had different names in the Quran, I am glad I read this section.

There are actually 66 books of the Bible - 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament. No way did God "mess up" my friend - He is able to preserve His words. :-) I would like to challenge you - "blind acceptance" is also blindly rejecting without researching and digging into what you are rejecting. Do not be one of those who "fall in line" trey - research for yourself, read the Bible for yourself, and find what is true for yourself!

Either way this is how war's is started, there are kings in the bible(Christian) that is a hundred years off from when Jesus was around, The bible has been rewritten too many times, and their are over 70 books of the first bible,but we only have 30 to 40 in the old testament, does that mean God messed up,and that's why it not there. I stay away from Catholic's too, Just remember ( blind acceptance is a sign of stupid fools who fall in line). Faith is like a T-shirt it can be changed at any time.

Very reasonable answer :: This very fact should be made clear to muslim brotherhood so that they can understand jesus. All christians pray to God calling him " Our Father which art in heaven" as taught by Jesus the Saviour of mankind. Psalms 82:6 calls human beings as "all of you are children of the most High" which clearly establishes the primary relation of the creator to the created beings
