Which Jesus Do You Follow?

Which Jesus Do You Follow?

There are many “versions” of Jesus that have been invented.

1. Jesus fled to Japan and settled in a remote hill village to grow garlic. He married a girl named Miyuko, had 3 children and died at the age of 106. (It was his younger brother Isukiri who was crucified.) Today, you can visit Jesus’ grave in Shingo, Northern Japan.

2. Jesus was educated by yogis in India, Nepal and the Himalayas.

3. Jesus went to Egypt and lived there to a ripe old age before he died there.

4. In Hindu writings, Jesus was in Kashmir, India, during the reign of King Shalivahan and met him in Srinagar. When the king asked him who he was, Jesus replied that he was Yusashaphat.

5. In Mahayana Buddhism, Jesus was in Tibet as Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. He had small circular makings on his hands and soles of his feet, the crucifixion markings, interpreted as the Buddhist wheel of life.

6. In Roman paganism, Jesus survived the crucifixion and travelled under an alias. He was known as Apollonius of Tyana.

7.  Jesus walked among various American Indian tribes. He was called “Pale Great Healer”.

8. In 7th century Arabia, over 600 years after the crucifixion, thousands of miles away, a story began circulating that some unknown person was made to resemble Jesus and took his place on the cross.

 

There are dozens more legends about Jesus. All of them cannot be true.

The only true and reliable record of Jesus’ life was written by those who were with Jesus, his closest friends, who spent years with Him ~ John, Peter and others.

If you want to know the real Jesus, His story is in the Bible.

Here is how Mark, Peter’s amanuensis (scribe), begins his writing:

“THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT JESUS THE MESSIAH…” Mark 1:1

Read it.

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 Arab Christian had ever heard of or used for Jesus before.

Isa.
A character loosely based on the real Yasuwa of the Bible and other folktales and legends from unreliable gnostic sources circulating at the time and Muhammad called his name Isa.

If Muhammad’s Isa is the same as the Yasuwa of the Arab Christians, why did he invent a NEW name, Isa (عيسى) instead of using the name Yasuwa (يَسُوعَ)  that every Arab had known for hundreds of years?

Was it because he was creating a new character that would fit his new religion?

Before Muhammad, no Arab had heard of Isa. The true Christians were not swayed by Muhammad’s tales. They rejected him.

In fact, the Arab Christians continue using the name Yasuwa till today.

Open an Arabic bible. You will find the name Yasuwa. You will never find the name Isa.

Now we can understand.
When Muslims say, Isa was not crucified, they are right. He was not.
It was Yasuwa who was crucified.

When Muslims say Isa was only a creation, they are right. He was a creation of Muhammad’s imagination.

When Muslims deny Isa’s divinity, again they’re absolutely right.
It was Yasuwa who is divine.

Yasuwa said, “I am The Way, The Truth and The Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Isa said no such thing. The only thing Isa ever spoke were the words put into his mouth by Muhammad hundreds of years after Yasuwa had ascended to heaven.
