An Argument from the Hadith for Jesus’ Death on the Cross

The evidence for Jesus’ crucifixion and death is considerable. Muslims have had centuries to give historical justification for their view of the crucifixion, but they have not been able to come up with anything rooted in history.

The Quran and Jesus’ Crucifixion

Christians have good reasons for believing the historical event of Jesus’ death on the cross. Do Muslims have good historical reasons for rejecting it?

Crucifixion in the Quran

The concept of his crucifixion is totally false. It never occurred because Allah says very clearly in the Qur’an: “And concerning their saying, ‘We killed the Messiah Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s Messenger.’ They killed him not, nor crucified, but it appeared so to them. Indeed those who disagree concerning it are in doubt about it. They have no (true) knowledge about it except that they follow conjecture. Surely, they did not kill him. But Allah did take him up unto Himself. Allah is ever Mighty, Wise.” (An-Nisaa’: 157-158)
—Dr. Muzammi Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America

—The late Sheikh Jadul-Haq `Ali Jadul-Haq, former Grand Sheikh of Al-Azhar University in Egypt.

We could both be wrong about God: Jesus?

It is important to listen to Muslims and why they do not believe in the Jesus of the Bible.  Here is a dialogue in which a Muslim says he hasn’t seen historical evidence for the Christian belief in Jesus:   1:30-1:40 “I genuinely am skeptical that Jesus would want me to believe in Him in that […]

When Facts Make No Difference

Muslims do not believe Jesus died on the cross. They are left with the desperate and, I believe, futile task of providing better historical support for their view of the crucifixion. They are left with having to give a full account of what really happened and how things became what they are. What one often […]

Shabir Ally’s Comments about the Roman Centurion

The Muslim apologist, Shabir Ally, rejects the eyewitness testimony of the New Testament saying, “We do not have the actual words of the centurion…Nor does the text say that the centurion or any Roman representative gave the body a post-mortem examination of even the most rudimentary sort.”

Jesus’ Death & History

Hundreds of millions of Muslims deny Jesus’ death on the cross.  This is problematic for Islam because Jesus’ death on the cross is an historical event; to deny history is irrational.  One of the major differences between Christianity and Islam is that there is a connection between what Christians believe and what God has done in the […]
