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.
