What Did The Disciples of The Apostles Teach?

What did the apostles of Jesus go around teaching and preaching after Jesus ascended to heaven? Peter preached for around 35 years, and was martyred around 68 AD. John preached for more than 60 years, before he died in exile in Patmos.

Who Did Jacob Wrestle With?

Who Did Jacob Wrestle With?

There is a very weird account in the Bible in Genesis 32, where it says that Jacob wrestled with Someone. What does this strange story mean? Who was Jacob? If you read about his life, you will see that Jacob was a cunning, devious man who lived most of his life cheating, fighting, struggling against everyone, just so that he would get his way. God had actually promised to bless him but Jacob could not grasp God’s assurance. Instead he…

Who Were The al-Nasara (Nazarenes)?

Who Were The al-Nasara (Nazarenes)?

I have often wondered how is it possible that the Quran’s teachings about Christianity differ from what the Bible teaches and what we Christians actually believe. Sura 5:116 is a prime example. And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah ?’” Whose belief is this? Where does the Quranic picture of “Christianity” come from? There were two parties of Jewish…

Were The Followers Of Jesus Called Nasara Instead of Christians?

Do you know why Muslims are so obsessed with finding the word “Christian” or “Christianity” in the Bible? Because these words do not appear in the Quran.They believe the correct name given to the followers of Christ is “Nasara”, as in the Quran. ‘Nasara’ is the Arabic word for Nazarene. What Muslims have failed to realize is that the name ‘nazarene’ was given by Jews to Jewish Christians as an insult. In fact, in Acts 24:6, there is reference to…

Why Did Jesus Say: My Father Is Greater Than I

Why Did Jesus Say: My Father Is Greater Than I

“My Father is greater than I.” Muslims think that this statement means Jesus is denying that He is God. Why did He say this and what did He mean? Had someone asked Him: “Who is greater, you or the Father?” No. The very fact that Jesus is making such a comparison is mind-blowing, if you think about it. Has any prophet ever needed to affirm to his followers: “Please, please make sure you all understand very clearly that God is…

Why Was Jesus so Angry?

Why Was Jesus so Angry?

In Mark 11:15-18, we see Jesus driving out the traders doing business in the temple. He overturned their tables and chairs and chased them out!

The Life of Muhammad Before The Revelations

The Life of Muhammad Before The Revelations

Have you ever wondered about Muhammad’s life before 610 AD when he first encountered the being in the cave? For the first 40 years of Muhammad’s life, he never heard of Islam or the word Muslim.

Who Is Isa And Who Is Yasuwa?

Who Is Isa And Who Is Yasuwa?

Christianity had existed in Arabia for 400 years before Muhammad was born. For hundreds of years, the Arab Christians had always called Jesus as Yasu or Yasuwa. (The name is derived from the original Hebrew, Yeshua, which means “Yahweh is Salvation.”) When Muhammad lived in the 7th century, he would surely have known and heard about Yasū’ (يَسُوعَ) that the Christians believed in and spoke of. Some time after 610 AD, Muhammad introduced a new name in Arabic that no…
