Trinity and Divinity of Jesus

Who is Jesus?


The suggestion that Jesus is not, according to the Bible, “very God of very God” is likely to prove startling to those accustomed to the widely held views of the major denominations. It is not generally known that many students of the Bible throughout the ages, including a considerable number of contemporary scholars, have not concluded that Scripture describes Jesus as “God” with a capital “G.”
A difference of opinion on such a fundamental issue should challenge all of us to an examination of the important question of Jesus’ identity. If our worship is to be, as the Bible demands, “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24), it is clear that we will want to understand what the Bible discloses about Jesus and his relationship to his Father. Scripture warns us that it is possible to fall into the trap of believing in “another Jesus” (2 Cor. 11:4)—a “Jesus” other than the one revealed in the Bible as God’s Son, the Messiah promised by the prophets of the Old Testament. It is a striking fact that Jesus never referred to himself as “God.” Equally remarkable is the New Testament’s use of the word “God”—in Greek ho theos—to refer to the Father alone, some 1325 times. In sharp contrast, Jesus is called “god” in a handful of texts only—perhaps no more than two. Why this impressive difference in New Testament usage, when so many seem to think that Jesus is no less “God” than his Father? Who Is Jesus?

This is a forum for understanding of Christianity, through Bible and teachings of Jesus Christ. It is well known that the Moses and Jesus Christ did not speak English or Greek, the present day English Bibles are translations of translations  by many unknown scribes during past hundred of years, while the original books of Bible are non extant. Analysis of the teachings of Jesus Christ as available in the four Gospels, does not directly support the doctrines of Christianity, which are based upon theology of Paul of Tarsus and later Church fathers. Jesus Christ obeyed & worshiped One God and preached the same. So question arises;

What should be done by a simple person who believes in God, wants to obey Him,  seek eternal bliss and salvation?
Its very simple, if someone is seriously  sick, he/she shall search for a credible doctor and if any stage it is found that he is fake, unreliable, immediately treatment is discontinued, one looks for batter one. God has given us wisdom and intellect to discern truth from falsehood. We spend years in education and learning to earn livelihood and respectable life. We have to make some effort to discover and earn eternal life, blessings and spiritual peace.
Take a bath, wear clean cloths, sit down alone and pray to God: "O, God of the universe, You are the Creator, Cherishes of all, You are Gracious and Merciful, I want to follow the right path which is pleasing to You, please help me, guide me to the Truth. Amen.
  1. Free your mind of all your existing beliefs & ideas.
  2. If you are a Christian, take "Red or Blue lettered Gospels", pen , marker and papers. Start reading Gospels, slowly, gradually, take your time, don't be in hurry.
  3. Underline, highlight, note down the teachings, sayings of Jesus Christ what he physically and openly preached to people and 12 disciples, not in "VISIONS or Dreams". [Thomas Jefferson's Experience]
  4. Discard what is not common in four Gospels. Critically examine it, accept what is clear, obvious your are near to the Truth, discard any belief which is ambiguous, not clearly , openly preached by Jesus Christ.
  5. Look around for people who you find practicing closer to the real teachings of Jesus Christ. Seek their assistance. 
  6. Continue with your quest for Truth till you find it. Keep praying to God for His help. Onus lies with Him.
  7. Keep exploring, keep reading .......... This site will assist in this regards. 

"You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


While the Basic concept of Bible remains monotheistic [Deuteronomy;6:4-5, Psalms;14:1, 116:5Job;23:8-9, Exodus; 9:14, 34:6-7, Psalms;, 2Samuel;7:22, Isaiah;46:5,9, Matthew;19:17-19, Mark;12:29-31, Romans;1:25]; some passages are interpreted to support Christian Church doctrines. One message is clear:

"Jesus answered, "The greatest is, 'Hear, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one: you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment. The second is like this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."[Mark 12:29-31]


The Bible itself and the scholars agree that the present text is not as was originally revealed:
"How do you say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly he made it falsely; the pen of the scribes made it a lie."[Jeremiah 8:8]. 
"Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write misfortune which they have prescribed; To turn aside the needy from justice, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!"[Isaiah 10:1-2]


Extracts from 'Preface' to RSV Bible approved by The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA reproduced below also confirms the same:
'The King James Version of the New Testament was based upon a Greek text that was marred by mistakes, containing the accumulated errors of fourteen centuries of manuscript copying.'
'Sometimes it is evident that the text has suffered in transmission, but none of the versions provides a satisfactory restoration.'
'Yet the King James Version has grave defects. By the middle of the nineteenth century, the development of Biblical studies and the discovery of many manu­scripts more ancient than those upon which the King James Version was based, made it manifest that these defects are so many and so serious as to call for revision of the English translation.'  
'Sometimes the present translation will be found to render a Hebrew word in a sense quite different from that of the traditional interpretation.'
'Many difficulties and obscurities, of course, remain.'
'We now possess many more ancient manuscripts of the New Testament, and are far better equipped to seek to recover the original wording of the Greek text'

The scholars are continuously trying to improve and to make the Biblical text as closer to the 'visualised original' as possible but the task is  not only arduous but impossible due to non existence of original scripts. Under these circumstances it is the individual responsibility to find out truth as Jesus Christ urged his followers to use the reason and intellect to discern the truth from falsehood:

"He also said to the multitudes, "When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, 'A shower is coming'; and so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, 'There will be scorching heat'; and it happens. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time? "And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?" [Luke;12:54-56]

It is aimed to facilitate efforts of knowledge seekers to discern the truth from falsehood with the intellectual use of available evidence with in Bible and history. Every one is entitled to his belief but one has to be sure that its based upon the real teachings not derived human work, which may result in everlasting doom & destruction:
“The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. But if a wicked man turns away from all his sins which he has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die.”(Ezekiel;18:20-21)
"The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin." (Deuteronomy 24:16, 2Kings 14:6)
"In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge." (Jeremiah 31:29-30)
"Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him." (Isaiah 3:10-11)
"For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works." (Matthew 16:27 )


There may be some other verses with conflicting meanings, in such a situation one has to apply his/her intellect to discern truth from false in the light of saying of Jesus Christ; "And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?" [Luke;12:56]. Remember;"God is not the author of confusion..." (1 Corinthians 14:33). It is simple and logical that a son can not be punished for the crime of his father or any one else, so any doctrine which deviates from the simple logic and clear Biblical text does not stand up to the criteria.

Conclusion

How do you say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly he made it falsely; the pen of the scribes made it a lie [Jeremiah 8:8]
Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write misfortune which they have prescribed; To turn aside the needy from justice, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless! [Isaiah 10:1-2]
So question arises that:
What should be done by a simple person who believes in God, wants to obey Him,  seek eternal bliss and salvation?
Its very simple, if someone is seriously  sick, he/she shall search for a credible doctor and if any stage it is found that he is fake, unreliable, immediately treatment is discontinued, one looks for batter one.

Why Monotheists be interested in Christianity and Bible? 

The three monotheistic religions, Jews, Christians & Muslims are linked  through the common ancestor and spiritual father of these great faiths, Abraham, the great monotheist. Muslims, also believe in the Biblical prophets and revelations to them from God hence closer to Jews and Christians. While Jews don't believe in Jesus Christ, the Muslims revere Jesus Christ as a great prophet and messenger of God. While there are many differences, the main difference is the Christian doctrine of Trinity which according to many Biblical scholars is extra biblical.
However the least they can do is to to believe in Just One God, [not Trinity] the concept, always followed by Christians in varying numbers during last 2000 years, the number growing now. This may save them form idolatry, polytheism, the great unforgivable sin according to Bible (Exodus 34:14 ; Isaiah 2:8,
1Sa 15:23, Mt 6:24; Lu 16:13; Col 3:5; Eph 5:5, Acts 10:25 Acts 10:26, Revelation 22:8, 22:9) and Quran. Even seven laws of Noah which according to Jews if followed by gentiles are enough for their salvation, they include this great sin of worshipping any one beside God.(see Quran;4:116)
This site may help to follow the true teachings of Jesus Christ centred on obedience and worship of God.

The Doctrine of the Trinity:Christianity's Self-Inflicted Wound
by Anthony Buzzard and Charles Hunting
This important work is a detailed biblical investigation of the relationship of Jesus to the one God of Israel. The authors challenge the notion that biblical monotheism is legitimately represented by a Trinitarian view of God and demonstrate that within the bounds of the canon of Scripture Jesus is confessed as Messiah, Son of God, but not God Himself. Later Christological developments beginning in the second century, and under the influence of pagan Gnosticism, misrepresented the biblical doctrine of God and Christ by altering the terms of the biblical presentation of the Father and the Son. This fateful development laid the foundation of a revised, unscriptural creed which needs to be challenged. This book provides a definitive presentation of a Christology rooted in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. The authors present a sharply-argued appeal for an understanding of God and Jesus in the context of Christianity's original, apostolic, unitary monotheism.  >>>>

Christianity conquered paganism and paganism corrupted Christianity

Image result for Christianity conquered paganism corrupted Christianity


Christianity conquered paganism and paganism corrupted Christianity.:


British historian Winwood Reade in his Martyrdom of Man, 1892, reports the shocking facts: “The Church diverged in discipline and dogma more and more widely from its ancient form, till in the second century the Christians of Judea, who had faithfully followed the customs and tenets of the twelve Apostles, were informed that they were heretics. During that interval a new religion had arisen. Christianity had conquered paganism and paganism had corrupted Christianity. The legends which belonged to Osiris and Apollo had been applied to the life of Jesus. The single Deity of the Jews [Mark 12:29] had been exchanged for the Trinity…The man who had said ‘Why do you call me good? There is none good but one, that is God,’ had now himself been made a god, or the third part of one” (p. 230).


They had never actually been his true followers, and they had not paid enough attention to his teachings — which tradition had swamped. “In vain they worship,” Jesus complained, “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matt. 15:9).  


Biblical Concept of God:
They have submitted themselves, often unknowingly, to a set of creeds and beliefs which date not from the Bible (which is then very inconsistently said to be the “sole authority”). The  post Bible creeds of Protestants commit them to believing that God is three in one. Jesus did not believe this. Jesus agreed with a Jew in Mark 12:29 that God is a single Divine Person, the Lord God of Israel, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of David and the God of Jesus. There is only one Person who is YHVH, the Father (John 17:3), and this is the central truth by which the universe is, or ought to be, controlled. Jesus called this belief in the One God of Israel the “greatest command” (Mark 12:28ff). Are you hearing clear sermons on this “Greatest Command” of Jesus?


Influence of Greek philosophy:
From the second century AD onwards, believers became confused under the influence of Greek philosophy introduced by “converts” who came into the church without fully abandoning their former pagan understandings. Gradually the definition of the biblical faith was transformed into a belief system which was strangely alien to the teaching of Jesus and the Apostles. God was turned into a mysterious three-in-one God, whom Jesus did not acknowledge (John 17:3; Mark 12:29; Deut. 6:4). The human Jesus, supernaturally brought into existence by miracle in Mary (Matt. 1:20: “begotten, fathered in her”; Luke 1:35: “the child begotten”), was replaced by a second, non-fully human, i.e. preexisting Person, either an angel, Michael as Jehovah’s Witnesses now claim (their founder Russell did not!), or a second “Person” of the Godhead, a second Deity.
[Introduction to my translation of the NT (The One God, the Father, One Man Messiah Translation with commentary, from Amazon.com or Atlanta Bible College, 800-347-4261)]


Born Again Christian:
The foundation in Jesus’ teaching must never be neglected. Jesus spoke of the need to be born again to gain salvation (John 3:3-8). Peter explained the very same process of rebirth when in 1 Peter 1:22-23 he wrote, “In obedience to the truth [the saving Gospel]…you have been born again.” It was the seed of the parable of the
sower which caused that rebirth (1 Pet. 1:23 = Luke 8:11). That seed was contained in the word which was preached to you as Gospel (v. 25). What perfect simplicity and harmony between Jesus and his apostolic students and teachers. Then never forget that “some believe for a while” (Luke 8:13). Salvation requires persistence through trial and tribulation until the end.

Muhammad in Bible


The advent of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had been foretold to the previous messengers. Allah says: “Behold! Allah took the Covenant of the prophets, saying: "I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you a messenger, confirming what is with you; do ye believe In Him and render Him help." Allah said: "Do ye agree, and take This My Covenant As binding on you?" They said: "We agree." He said: "Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses."(Qur’an;3:81).  The Old Testament as well as New Testament still contains these prophesies. Allah says: "Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom They find mentioned In their own (scriptures). In the law and the Gospel;- for He commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; He allows them As lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. so it is those who believe In him, honor him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is They who will prosper."(Qur’an;7:157).

حضرت محمّد صلی اللھ علیھ وآلھ وسلّم کا ذکر یہودیوں اورعیسائیوں کی کتاب مقدس بائبل کے عہد نامہ عہد نامہ عییق (قدیم) اور جدید  دونوں میں کیا گیا ہیں:مقدس بائبل میں عہد نامہ عییق (قدیم) عیسائیوں کی مقدس کتاب ہے:

ا ) بائبل کو دو حصّوں میں تقسیم کیا جاتا ہیں، عہد نامہ قدیم (عتیق) اور عہد نامہ جدید۔ عہد نامہ قدیم یہودیوں کی مقدس کتاب ہے اور اس میں موسی ‎سے پہلے تمام انبیاء کے حالات کو ضبط تحریر میں لایا گیا ہیں۔ عہد نامہ جدید عیسی کے احوال پر مشتمل ہے۔
ب ) عہد نامہ قدیم اور عہد نامہ جدید کوملا کر پوری بائبل 73 کتب پر مشتمل ہیں۔ تاہم پروٹسٹنٹ بائبل جو کنگ جیمز ورشن کہلاتا ہے، 66 کتب پر مشتمل ہیں۔ کیوں کہ یہ 7 کتابوں کو مشکوک سمجھتے ہیں۔ اور اس کی سند پر شک کرتے ہیں۔
اس لئےکیتھولک فرقے کے عہد نامہ قدیم میں 46 کتب ہیں جبکہ پروٹشٹنٹ کے عہد نامہ قدیم میں 39 کتب ہیں۔ جبکہ دونوں فرقوں کا عہد نامہ جدید 27 کتب پر مشتمل ہیں۔ عیسائیت میں کئی فرقے ہیں، جن میں دو بڑے فرقے ہیں کیتھولک اور پروٹسٹنٹ 

حضرت محمدۖ کا ذکر عہدنامہ ِقدیم میں:(Old Testament)
قرآن مجید فرماتا ہے کہ:
وہ لوگ جو ایسے رسولۖ،نبی اُمی(ان پڑھ) کی پیروی کرتے ہیں جن کو وہ اپنے ہاں تورات وانجیل میں لکھا ہوا پاتے ہیں۔ 
محمدۖ کا ذکر کتابِ استثنا میں(Deuteronomy)
اﷲتعالیٰ موسی سے فرماتا ہے ڈیوٹرانمی(کتابِ استثنا) کے سورةنمبر ١٨ آیت ١٨ میں:
میں تمھارے بھائیوں کے درمیان میں سے ایک پیغمبر پیدا کرونگا،جو تمھاری (موسی) کی طرح ہوگا،اور میں اپنے الفاظ اسکے منہ میں ڈالوں گا اور وہ ان سے یہی کہے گا جو میں اسکوحکم دوں گا۔
عیسائی یہ دعویٰ کرتے ہے کہ یہ پیش گوئی عیسی کے بارے میں ہے کیونکہ عیسی موسی کی طرح تھے۔ موسی بھی یہودی تھے، عیسی بھی یہودی تھے۔موسی بھی پیغبر تھے اور عیسی بھی پیغمبر تھے۔اگراس پیش گوئی کو پورا کرنے کیلئے یہی دو اصول ہیں تو پھر بائبل میں ذکر کیے گئے تمام پیغمبرجوموسی کے بعد آئے مثلاً سلیمان،حِزقیل ،دانیال ، یحیٰ وغیرہ سب یہودی بھی تھے اور پیغمبر بھی حالانکہ یہ محمدۖ ہے جو موسی کی طرح ہے
١) دونوں یعنی موسی اور محمدۖ کے ماں باپ تھے جبکہ عیسیٰ معجزانہ طور پر مرد کے مداخلت کے بغیرپیدا ہوا تھا۔
٢) دونوں نے شادیاں کی اور ان کے بچے بھی تھے جبکہ بائبل کے مطابق عیسی نے شادی نہیں کی اورنہ ہی اُن کے بچے تھے۔
٣) دونوں فطرتی موت مرے۔جبکہ عیسیٰ کوزندہ اُٹھالیا گیا ہے-
حضرت محمدۖ ،حضرت موسٰی کے بھائیوں میں سے تھے۔عرب یہودیوں کے بھائی ہے۔ حضرت ابراہیم کے دو بیٹے تھے،حضرت اسماعیل اور حضرت اسحاق (Isaac)۔ عرب اسماعیل کے اولاد میں سے ہے اور یہودی اسحاق کے اولاد میں سے ہے۔
منہ میں الفاظ ڈالنا
حضرت محمدۖ اُمیّ یعنی ان پڑھ تھے اور جو کچھ وہ اﷲتعالیٰ سے جو کچھ وحی حاصل کرتے،وہ اِسے لفظ بہ لفظ دہرا دیتے۔ میں تمھارے بھائیوں کے درمیا ن میں سے ایک پیغمبر پیدا کروں گا،جو تمھاری (موسی) کی طرح ہوگا، اورمیں اپنے الفاظ اُسکے منہ میں ڈالوں گا اور وہ ان سے یہی کہے گا جیسے میں اُسکو حکم کرونگا۔
٢: ڈیوٹرانمی کی کتاب یہ درج ہے کہ:
جوکوئی میری اُن باتوں کو جنکو وہ میرا نام لیکر کہے گا، نہ سنے تو میں اُنکا حساب اُن سے لوں گا۔ 
محمدۖ کا ذکر (Isaiah) کی کتاب میں اس کا ذکر(Isaiah) کی کتاب میں ہے کہ:
جب کتاب اس کو دی گئی جوکہ ان پڑھ ہے اور کہا کہ اس کو پڑھو میں تمھارے لیے دُعا کرونگا تو اس نے کہا کہ میں پڑھا لکھا نہیں ہوں۔
جب جبرائیل نے محمدۖ سے کہا کہ پڑھ تو اس نے کہا کہ میں پڑھا لکھا نہیں ہوں۔

محمدۖ کا ذکر نام کے ساتھ سلیمان کی مناجات (songs of solomon) میں کیا گیا ہے۔
یہ ایک عبرانی حوالہ ہے جس کے معنی ہے:
وہ بہت میٹھا ہے،ہاں: وہ بہت پیارا ہے۔ یہ میرا محبوب ہے اور یہ میرا دوست ہے،اے یروشلم کے بیٹیوں 
عبرانی زبان میں لفظ اِم احترام کیلئے بولا جاتا ہے۔مثلاً عبرانی زبان میں خُدا کواِلُکہاجاتا ہے۔لیکن احترام سے اس کواِلُ اِم'پڑھا جاتا ہے۔اسی طرح محمدۖ کے نام کے ساتھ بھی اِم کااضافہ کیا گیا ہے۔لیکن انگریزی میں اسکا ترجمہ لفظ پیارا سے کیا گیا ہے۔لیکن عبرانی زبان کے عہدنامہ قدیم (Old Testament) میں محمدۖ کا نام ابھی بھی موجود ہے۔

حضرت محمدۖ  کا ذکرعہد نامہ جدید میں(New Testament)

قرآن کے سورة الصف کی آیت میں ذکر کیا گیا ہے کہ:
اور اس وقت کو یاد کرو جب عیسی ابن مریم نے کہا کہ اے بنی اسرائیل!بلاشبہ میںاﷲتعالیٰ کا رسول ہوں(جو) تمھاری طرف (بھیجا گیاہوں)۔میں تصدیق کرنے والا ہوں تورات کا جو مجھ سے پہلے آئی ہے اور خوشخبری سنانے والا ہوں ایک رسول کی جو میرے بعد آئے گا،اسکا نام احمد ہوگا۔پھر وہ جب کھلی نشانیاں لے کر آیا تو وہ کہنے لگے کہ یہ تو صریح جادو ہے۔[13]
تمام وہ حوالے جو عہد نامہِ قدیم (Old Testament) میں محمدۖ کے بارے میں دیئےگئے ہیں وہ یہودیوں کے علاوہ عیسائیوں کیلئے بھی درست ہے۔کیونکہ عیسائی دونوں ،عہد نامہ قدیم (Old Testament) اور عہد نامہِ جدید(New Testament) دونوں کو مانتی ہیں جبکہ یہودی صرف عہد نامہِ قدیم کو مانتے ہے۔
یوحنا (John) کی کتاب سورة ١٤ آیت ١٦
اور میںخُدا سے دُعا کروں گا اور وہ تمھیں ایک مددگار دے گا جو تمھارے ساتھ،ہمیشہ رہے گا۔
یوحنا (John) کی کتاب سورة ١٥ آیت ٢٦
میں تمھارے پاس مددگار بھیجوں گا جو میرے باپ کی طرف سے ہوگا وہ مددگار سچائی کی روح ہے جو باپ کی طرف سے آتی ہے جب وہ آئے گا تو میرے بارے میں گواہی دے گا۔
یوحَنّا (John) کی کتاب سورة ١٦ آیت ٧
میں تم سے سچ کہتا ہوں کہ میرا جانا تمھارے لیے بہتر ہے کیوں کہ اگر میں جاتا ہوں تو تمھارے لیے مددگار بھیجوں گا۔اگر میں نہ جائوں تو تمھارے پاس مددگار نہ آئے گا۔
احمدیا محمدۖکا مطلب ہے وہ شخص جس کی تعریف کی جاتی ہےیا وہ جس کی تعریف کی گئی ہو۔یہ تقریباً یونانی لفظ پے ری کلایٹس(Periclytos) کے معنی ہے۔یوحَنّا کی کتاب کے سورة ١٦آیت ١٦، سورة ٥١ آیت ٢٦ اور سورة ١٦ آیت ٧ میں یونانی لفظپے ری کلیٹاس(Peraclytos) کا انگریزی میں ترجمہ(comforter)کم فرٹر یعنی مددگار لفظ سے کیا گیا ہے۔حالانکہ (Peraclytos) کے معنی ہے وکیل یا ایک مہربان دوست۔اسکا مطلب مددگارنہیں ہے۔جو انگریزی ترجمہ میں استعمال کیا گیا ہے۔ (Paracletos)پے ری کلیٹاس لفظ (Pariclytos) پے ری کلایٹس کی ٹیٹری شکل ہے۔عیسی نے درحقیقت احمد کا نام لے کر پیش گوئی کی۔نیز یونانی لفظ پے راکلیٹ (Paraclete) محمدۖ کی طرف اشارہ کرتی ہے جو سارے جہان کیلئے رحمت ہے۔
بعض عیسائی یہ کہتے ہے کہ لفظ مددگار(Comforter) جس کا ذکر ان پیش گوئیوں میں کیاگیا ہے،یہ روح لقدس یا روحِ مقدس (Holy spirit) کی طرف اشارہ کرتی ہے۔لیکن یہ اس بات کو سمجھنے میں ناکام ہوگئے ہے کیونکہ پیش گوئی میں یہ صاف ذکر ہے کہ جب عیسی اس دنیا سے چلا جائے گا تب مددگار(Comforter)آئے گا۔حالانکہ بائبل(Bible)یہ بتاتی ہے کہ روح القدس تو پہلے سے زمین پر موجود تھا عیسی کے زمانے میں بھی اور اس سے پہلے بھی۔وہ اِلیزبِت(Elizabeth) کے رحم میں موجود تھا اوردوبارہ جب عیسی کی بپتسمہ یا اصطباغ (Baptism) کی جارہی تھی،وغیرہ وغیرہ۔ اسی طرح یہ پیش گوئی صرف اور صرف محمدۖ کے بارے میں ہے اور صرف اسی کا ذکر کرتی ہے۔
یوحنا (John) کی انجیل سورة ١٦ آیات١٤-١٢
مجھے تم سے بہت کچھ کہنا ہے مگر ان سب باتوں کو تم برداشت نہ کرسکوگے۔ لیکن جب روحِ حق آئے گا تو تم کو سچائی کی راہ دکھائے گا۔روحِ حق اپنی طرف سے کچھ نہ کہے گا بلکہ وہی کہے گا جو وہ سنتا ہے وہ تمھیں وہی کہے گا جو کچھ ہونے والا ہے اور وہ میری (یعنی عیسی(اﷲ) کی بڑائی بیان کرے گا۔
مندرجہ بالاآیت میں روحِ حق کا جو لفظ استعمال کیا گیا ہے یہ محمدۖ کے علاوہ کسی اور کی طرف اشارہ نہیں کرتی۔ کیونکہ محمدۖ کیلئے یہاں روح حقکا لفظ استعمال ہوا ہے۔اور محمدۖ کی صفات میں سے ایک صفت حقبھی ہے۔جو قرآن مجید میں موجود ہے۔مندرجہ بالاآیت میں یہ بھی کہا گیا کہ جب وہ آئے گا تو:
١) لوگوں کو سچائی کی راہ دکھائے گا۔
٢) جو کچھ سنے گا وہی کہے گا۔اپنی طرف سے کچھ بھی نہیں کہے گا۔
٣) وہ عیسی کی بڑائی بیان کرے گا اور اسکا احترام کرے گا۔
ا - رسول اﷲ(ۖ)نے لوگوں کو سچائی کی راہ دکھائی اور وہ ہے اﷲتعالیٰ کی راہ۔
ب- رسول اﷲ(ۖ) نے جو کچھ سُنا وہی کہا اور اپنی خواھش سے کوئی بات نہیں کی۔قرآن میں اﷲ تعالیٰ فرماتا ہے۔
ترجمہ: اور(نبیۖ) اپنی خواہش سے نہیں بولتا۔نہیں ہے یہ کچھ اور مگر جو اس کو وحی کی جاتی ہے۔
د- رسول اﷲ(ۖ) نے کسی بھی بنی کے بارے میں کوئی غلط الفاظ استعمال نہیں کیے۔ وہ ہمیشہ اﷲتعالیٰ کی نبیوں کی تعریف کرتا تھا۔ اور دوسرے نبیوں کے ساتھ ساتھ محمدۖ نے عیسی کی بڑی تعریف کی ہے۔قرآن مجید میں بھی عیسی کی تعریف کئی جگہوں میں کی گئی ہے۔عیسی کو قرآن میںروح اﷲ کہاگیا ہے جس کے معنی ہے اﷲ تعالیٰ کی رحمت۔ اسکے علاوہ عیسی کو کلمتہ اﷲیعنی اﷲ تعالیٰ کا کلام، نبی اﷲیعنی اﷲ تعالیٰ کا نبی اور پیغمبر کے نام سے پکارا گیا ہے۔
