Monotheistic Passages in the New Testament
Second: Monotheistic Passages in the New Testament
The books of the New Testament clearly declare that Allah (S.W) is the One and Only God, Lord and Creator. The Gospels' writers indicate that Jesus (PBUH) and his disciples were the people who uttered these words.
- Jesus’ saying,"And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Christ.”(Matt 22: 9 – 10)
- “A man came up to him, saying, "Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life? And he said to him, "Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good.”(Matt 19:16-17)
- In the Book of John, “When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, "Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you. Since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him.And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.(John 17:1 – 3) . Therefore, there is no true God except One, and he is Allah (S.W).
- When trying to tempt Jesus (PBUH), the devil said,“All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, "Be gone, Satan! For it is written, "'You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.”(Matt. 4:10) the same is in Luke. (Luke 4:8)
- Jesus (PBUH) told the Jews, “You are doing what your father did." They said to him, "We were not born of sexual immorality. We have one Father--even God.” Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and I am here. I came not of my own accord, but he sent me.”(John 8:41- 42)
These passages and many others speak about One God, and there is nothing in them that speak about three beings uniting in one person as the Christians claim.
