It's more than that. There are many verses in the Qur'an that mention Jesus AS.
You seem to want to make it all about translation of certain verses about him "dying".
It doesn't really affect my view whether he "died" or not, when it comes to the question of "end times".
Okay. No problem then.
I didn't say Jesus was not mentioned in teh Qur'an. See, I have read every single verse in the Qur'an in every single manner possible. But you have not because you obviously don't know one word prior to your favourite word in one single verse in the book.
And if it's not about translation, what is it about? If a word is not translated, how would you know what it is saying? In your case, it's all about translation so that's what you should focus upon. And if this does not affect your view, that's no problem to me Muhammad. I am only making it clear that your grounding is so flawed and you are not even willing to do 10 minutes of research on your eschatology. Up to you.
Allah SWT states clearly that he did not die on the cross.
Again, I did not say he dies on the cross. It says Ma Salaboohoo, wa ma kathaloohoo. He was neither killed nor was he crucified like they claimed. It was only Shubbihaa.
Don't worry Muhammad. I have read the Qur'an. I mean every word. Not just one word in one sentence to suit your belief like you have negating and ignoring every single word in the Quran other than the verse you want to use for your already established blind faith. So far, I have given you information from your own source website which you only cut and paste from but have never in your studied through. So you ignored it all throughout.
Historical sources that said he did, were mistaken.
What historical sources? I asked you. Mentioned them. What did they say? Josephus, Pliny, Tacitus. What did they say?
I would say that there is plenty in the Qur'an to create "sectarian strife", when it comes to religion.
If you really really wish to create "sectarian strife", you can find hatred anywhere you want. It depends on your already established blind faith and intent. You can do it with any book.
Christianity evolved from a belief in Jesus as "the Messiah" in a Jewish setting around Jerusalem.
Would you not agree with that?
That's not relevant. Your cliam was that the Quran said that Jesus IS the expected Jewish Messiah which was so false while you never acknowledged you were absolutely wrong. Sorry but you were just wrong and you misquoted the Qur'an so many times already. I know you are a good person mate, but i also understand that its a faith matter for you so you will ignore any fact that goes against your faith.
Am I supposed to not use my intelligence?
From the beginning i have been telling you to use your akal. If you didnt know what that means why dont you ask? It means intelligence. Reason.
No. We all have faults. I am willing to change my beliefs if I can see that they are wrong.
So far, you have not convinced me.
Haha. You have not even spent 10 minutes researching what I have said. So it's absurd to even think about convincing yourself about anything but what you already have convinced yourself about. You don't follow the Qur'an. You are blind following what others told you so your conviction is in people, not God. That's your religion. Not mine. But it's okay. Qur'an says Lakum Dheenukum Waliadhdheen. It's fine with me. I am only responding to you because that's the purpose of a forum.
But I would recommend that you read the books I recommended to you. They are not some strange sectarian books but traditional and mainstream Sunni scholarship. Of course you will not read them by the looks of it since you did not even do your favourite quick google search on them and find a wikipedia article.
It's alright Muhammad. Lakum Dheenukum waliaddheen.
Salamun Alaika Laka Ahi.
