VERSES THAT CONTRADICT JESUS’(PBUH) DIVINITY
Scholars have agreed that human deeds, which Jesus (PBUH) performed all his life, prevent and refute calling him Allah (S.W) or the Son of Allah (S.W). It is impossible and incorrect to believe that Allah (S.W) was born, ate, circumcised, beaten, then died.
It is unacceptable reasoning from Christians to say that these deeds were done by the human part of him and not the divine, for they do not believe that Allah’s (S.W) incarnation in Jesus (PBUH) was like a dress, which he can put on some times and take off at other times.
What he (PBUH) did must be from the incarnated God, as they claim. Otherwise, they have to agree that he is human, which is fact.
In his letter to Theodosius Caesar, Saint Kerliss, the Bishop of Alexandria, said, “We do not split the human part of Jesus from the divine, nor do we split the word from the human part after that unknown unity, which we cannot explain. We confess that Jesus is from two wills that united and became one, not by destroying the two natures or by their mixture, but by an amazing and noble unity.”
Pope Euthenasius said, “This one God is the Son of God spiritually, and he is the Son of man bodily, but that does not mean that the only Son has two natures, one divine and one human, but one nature of the incarnated God’s Word, to whom we prostrate, the same as we prostrate to Jesus.”
Translating the sentence ‘this is my beloved son’, Saint Gregarious said, “If I see that my son is hungry, thirsty, sleepy or tired…do not think it is for his body without his divinity. If you see him cure the ills, clean the lepers and make eyes of mud, do not think that he is doing so by his divine part without the human part, because it is not that the great deeds are for one and the humble ones for another.”
We will be able to understand this – claimed- unity relationship, which is the unity of the human and the divine parts of Jesus (PBUH), when we realize two different deeds that Jesus performed, one through his human part and the other through his divine part. In the story of the bleeding woman, we read, “She came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment, and immediately her discharge of blood ceased.And Jesus said, "Who was it that touched me?" When all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the crowds surround you and are pressing in on you! But Jesus said, "Someone touched me, for I perceive that power has gone out from me.”(Luke 8:44-46). In the blink of an eye, Christians compile total divinity with total humanity; Jesus did not know who touched him by his human part, and he cured her by his divine part and all in one moment.
In order to refute this strange unity, all one has to do is to imagine mixing two different elements completely and the properties of each remain the same; if we mix sweet with sour, supposedly – according to Christian understanding- the mixture could be sweet-sour at the same time.
