Jesus Of Nazareth?

    If you change "Jesus Of Nazareth" to "Jesus Of Mars", the New Testament becomes a decent science fiction novel.

        Jesus was a time traveler from the future.
        He was beamed up into his time machine and back to the future.
        Can't wait to meet him.
        He will probably be born 20 years from now

      If you change your comments to be more responsive you might appear to make some sense and appear to have half a brain.

        "Responsive"?

        hmm

        The OP is responsive, hence the post.

      Without the New Testament, what remains is one fine close encounter of the third kind report. W/ it, it becomes more like Star Trek. Less sci-fi...more a vision of the future. You can always stay here and stagnate.

    I don't really see it making a good novel, but you should run the idea past the folks at the sci fi channel. I've seen crazier ideas for a movie than this.

    Jesus Of Nazareth?

    Jesus was born in Nazareth or lived there but he died in Kashmir and is buried at Mohallah Khanyar, Srinagar, Kashmir, India.

    Both references are important.

      Truthful accounts of the lives of Jesus and Mary are mentioned in Quran; one many read chapter Mary to start with.

        That is a meaningless reference.
        Mentions noting about Jesus or Mary.
        It's so general, you can read that to be anything you want. Zecharia is the only name that's recognisable.

          I think you missed reading the follwoing verses:

          [19:17] And relate the story of Mary as mentioned in the Book. When she withdrew from her people to a place to the east,
          [19:18] And screened herself off from them, then We sent Our angel to her, and he appeared to her in the form of a perfect man.
          [19:19] She said, ‘I seek refuge with the Gracious God from thee if indeed thou dost fear Him.’
          [19:20] He replied, ‘I am only a Messenger of thy Lord, that I may bestow on thee a righteous son.’
          [19:21] She said, ‘How can I have a son when no man has touched me, neither have I been unchaste?’
          [19:22] He replied, ‘Thus it is.’ But says thy Lord, ‘It is easy for Me; and We shall do so that We may make him a Sign unto men, and a mercy from Us, and it is a thing decreed.’
          [19:23] So she conceived him, and withdrew with him to a remote place.
          [19:24] And the pains of childbirth drove her unto the trunk of a palm-tree. She said, ‘O! would that I had died before this and had become a thing quite forgotten!’
          [19:25] Then he called her from beneath her, saying, “Grieve not. Thy Lord has placed a rivulet below thee;
          [19:26] “And shake towards thyself the trunk of the palm-tree; it will cause fresh ripe dates to fall upon thee.
          [19:27] “So eat and drink, and cool thy eye. And if thou seest any man, say, ‘I have vowed a fast to the Gracious God; I will therefore not speak this day to any human being.’”
          [19:28] Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. They said, ‘O Mary, thou hast brought forth a strange thing.
          [19:29] ‘O sister of Aaron, thy father was not a wicked man nor was thy mother an unchaste woman!’
          [19:30] Then she pointed to him. They said, ‘How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?’

            This is meaningless sentences.
            There is no story, nor meaning. No description, nor purpose.

            You must have the art of interpretation.
            So, you better go to the Middle East, and tell them to stop all the Unauthorised activity of violence.

            Chapter 19 of Quran named Mary; starts with the account of John the Baptist, a cousin of Jesus. John was born when his father had no hope of having a child due to his old age and that John's mother was barren; it was like Mary having a child while she was not married and not touched by a man to give birth to a son.

            I would  therefore like to naarate the account of John's birth from chapter Mary of the Quran for the interest of my friends here:

            [19:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
            [19:2] Kaf Ha Ya ‘Ain Sad.
            [19:3] This is an account of the mercy of thy Lord shown to His servant, Zachariah.
            [19:4] When he called upon his Lord, a secret calling,
            [19:5] He said, ‘My Lord, the bones have indeed waxed feeble in me, and the head glistens with hoariness, but never, my Lord, have I been unblessed in my prayer to Thee.
            [19:6] ‘And I fear my relations after me, and my wife is barren. Grant me, therefore, a successor from Thyself,
            [19:7] ‘That he may be heir to me and to the House of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, well-pleasing to Thee.’
            [19:8] ‘O Zachariah, We give thee glad tidings of a son whose name shall be Yahya‡. We have not made any one before him of that name.’
            [19:9] He said, ‘My Lord, how shall I have a son when my wife is barren and I have reached the extreme limit of old age?’
            [19:10] He said, ‘So it is.’ But thy Lord says, ‘It is easy for Me, and indeed I created thee before, when thou wast nothing.’
            [19:11] He said, ‘My Lord, appoint for me a token.’God said, ‘Thy token is that thou shalt not speak to anyone for three full days and nights.’
            [19:12] Then he came forth unto his people from the chamber and asked them by signs to glorify God in the morning and in the evening.
            [19:13] ‘O Yahya, hold fast the Book.’ And We gave him wisdom while yet a child,
            [19:14] And tenderness of heart from Ourself, and purity. And he was pious
            [19:15] And dutiful toward his parents. And he was not haughty and rebellious.
            [19:16] And peace was on him the day he was born, and the day he died, and peace there will be on him the day he will be raised up to life again.

            http://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/sh … p;verse=10

            So John was the fruit of prayers of Zachariah as was Jesus fruit of prayers of his grandmother; in both cases due to prayers impossible became possible.

              This too, is meaningless.
              Jesus was promised to come long before anyone prayed, as you mention.

            More about Jesus:
            [19:31] He said, ‘I am a servant of Allah. He has given me the Book, and made me a Prophet;
            [19:32] ‘And He has made me blessed wheresoever I may be, and has enjoined upon me Prayer and almsgiving so long as I live;
            [19:33] ‘And He has made me dutiful toward my mother, and He has not made me haughty and unblessed.
            [19:34] ‘And peace was on me the day I was born, and peace there will be on me the day I shall die, and the day I shall be raised up to life again.’
            [19:35] Such was Jesus, son of Mary. This is a statement of the truth about which they doubt.
            [19:36] It does not befit the Majesty of Allah to take unto Himself a son. Holy is He. When He decrees a thing, He says to it, ‘Be!’, and it is.
            [19:37] Said Jesus: ‘Surely, Allah is my Lord, and your Lord. So worship Him alone; this is the right path.’
            [19:38] But the parties differed among themselves; so woe to those who disbelieve because of the meeting of the great day.
            [19:39] How wonderful will their hearing and seeing be on the day when they will come to Us! But today the wrongdoers are in manifest error.
            [19:40] And warn them of the day of grief when the matter will be decided. But now they are in a state of carelessness, so they do not believe.

            No, He IS the Christ. Not (a) Christian.

            You really should stick to your Muslim faith, and talk about that.

        Since Jesus received serious injuries on the Cross; so for some days he was treated by his friends of his wounds. He met them when he was a bit healed; and then he travelled to Galilee  from there he started his journey to India ,secretly, alongwith his mother Mary; his close freinds joined him later.

          jesus did not receive serious injuries, he died right there and then. he wasn't treated of his wounds at all, because he was already dead.

            I don't have to. I was just pointing out some facts about Jesus.

            I respect the Christians as good human beings and I sincerly wish that they follow Jesus and leave the wrong path of Paul.

            Is there any wrong if the Christians follow Jesus and Mary?

    Jesus of Nazareth was a truthful messenger prophet of the creator-God; he was not a god or son of god; yes, he was like Krishna, Moses, Zoroaster and Muhammad, in the image of God reflecting attributes like other prophets messengers.
