Books by Ahmed Deedat
For ctucifiction the three Abrahamic faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Crucifixiln, have responded differently to the person of Jesus Christ as. Their views and responses to Jesus as vary in many areas and they interpret many events in his life differently.
The Crucifixion is the most controversial event in the life of Jesus as. The accounts of the events of the Crucifixion in the Abrahamic faiths are completely at odds with each other.
What took place crkcifiction the Crucifixion, and the events that immediately followed, has divided people, often bitterly, since the 1st Century. The viewpoint of the Israelites at the time of Jesus as was straightforward; had he been put to death on the cross and successfully executed by the Romans, his messianic claims had come to nought.
He was a failed Messiah and could not have been the one they awaited. In an age when Jewish rebellions were frequently crushed by the Romans [e. To this day the Israelites still await their true Messiah.
It is also referred to as a place where the Jews come to mourn the destruction of the Second Temple, which took place around 70CE. Over years since Moses asthe Jews have still not accepted a Messiah, although a few minority Jewish groups do accept Jesus as as their Messiah. The following Biblical verse shows the importance of the Crucifixion and Resurrection in Christian theology; it is taken from one of the letters of St Paul found in the New Testament:.
This event is the central aspect of the Christian doctrine of Atonement, a key Christian belief. He comments on the Resurrection by stating it:. Yet, the exact manner in which this happened has been interpreted differently. Indeed the prevalent orthodox Islamic view, that Jesus as was not placed upon the Cross but rather lifted to the heavens while a substitute took his place, is but one in a range of views of what took place.
On the contrary, Allah exalted him to Himself. And Crucificion is Mighty, Wise. The orthodox view is that Jesus as was lifted bodily to the heavens. Other scholars have interpreted this as meaning that Allah exalted Jesus as in stature, by saving him from an accursed death on the cross.
Jesus as Surviving the Crucifixion. The idea of Jesus as surviving the Crucifixion is not a new one. In modern times these ideas have gained more acceptance and coverage in academic circles and in documentaries and cruucifiction. In this same BBC documentary, Dr.
James Tabor, Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina, throws more light on the events that took place years ago:. The Roman soldiers byy the body.

There were two others crucified, according to the Gospel accounts and they broke the legs of those to hasten their death, because the Sabbath day was coming. He further bg this point by stating:. Crucificgion call it resuscitation, but if you want to press the language, that would be Resurrection. It should be stated here that Dr. James Tabor himself does not hold the opinion that Jesus as did in fact survive the Crucifixion. Tabor is clear on this in his book, The Jesus Dynastyand in personal correspondence, that his belief is that Jesus as died upon the Cross rather than survived the event:.
This may in part be to do with Dr. Comment on this tomb is outside the scope of this article. Another theologian who has written about this idea is German scholar Holger Kersten.
Kersten is best known for his book The Jesus Conspiracy that boldly states that the Shroud of Turin is living proof that Jesus as did not die on the Cross and its dating was deliberately sabo-taged by the Catholic Church to cover up this fact. Kersten highlights several inter-esting factors in the Crucifixion supporting the idea that Jesus as survived.
One piece of ddeedat done by Holger Kersten, along with his co—author Elmar R. Kersten and Gruber quote the Gospels to support their thesis; that the burial of Jesus as was never completed:. Following this, Kersten and Gruber analyse the description of hundreds of pounds of aloes and myrrh used upon the body of Jesus asbrought by Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus. Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as explains how these herbs were used to produce a special ointment that was subsequently given the name Marham-i-Isa Ointment of Jesus as.
Both these scholars do not accept the claims of the Ahmadiyyat Muslim community and Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad asyet od both openly support the viewpoint that Jesus as survived the Crucifixion, going against the prevalent orthodox Islamic belief. The late Ahmed Deedat wrote a book entitled, Crucifixion or Cruci—fiction, in which he argued in favour of the view that Jesus as did not die upon the cross, but survived the Crucifixion.
Deedat presented the usual arguments that are presented in favour of the swoon theory such as the short duration of the Crucifixion, the Sign of Jonah asand Jesus as eating and drinking afterwards.
In addition to this Deedat also includes a unique collection of stories from the media of people having had resurrection-like experiences:. Was he dead or alive? Ahmed Deedat was highly regarded for his Christian-Muslim dialogue and public debates.
His uncompromising style brought him many supporters from a variety of Islamic schools of thought as well as detractors. Taking a viewpoint that seems to support the Ahmadis will of course draw attention and criticism from both Muslims and other Christians. One such criticism was from Mohammed Bana of South Africa:. In his lectures, he hardly gave the Islamic viewpoint, or seldom the Christian viewpoint, thus confusing his audience. I believe he likes to make the Qadianis of this country very happy by mostly giving their viewpoint that Jesus, after being put on the Cross, swooned.
Mr Deedat is the only person who can tell us whether he is preaching either the Christian doctrine, the Muslim doctrine, or the Qadiani doctrine. Our amazement arises from two considerations. On the one hand, this idea is held to only by the heretical Ahmadiyya sect in Islam and is denounced by all true Christians and Muslims.
In previous debates with many famous Christian scholars, Shabir Ally had taken the position that Jesus as was never placed upon the Cross, but someone else was crucified in his place. More recently, however, in public debates, Shabir has changed his usual approach and position in support of the Ahmadi view that Jesus as survived the Crucifixion.
For Christians, it is an angle of attack against the scholar: Despite Shabir explaining that he did believe in the physical return of Jesus as and rejecting the claims of the Ahmadis, that Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as fulfilled the prophecies of the second coming of the Messiah, he openly admitted:.
In my own correspondence with Shabir Ally, he explained to me his viewpoint in the following words:. The traditional interpre-tation of Quran 4: But some modern interpreters are willing to accept that what was really meant was that Jesus did not die on the cross. It seems to me that this latter approach is more likely to be correct. I must confess that I do not find these convincing. The belief that Jesus survived the cross does not mean for me that he made his way out of Palestine.
I do not profess to know what eventually became of him. Despite openly distancing himself from the claims of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community and the Promised Messiah asShabir Ally has openly declared that his position on the Crucifixion is in exact keeping with the views expressed by the Promised Messiah as and held by Ahmadi Muslims.
Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it as charitable gifts. The Islamic orthodoxy today will have us believe that this is a prophecy about a literal quest that will be undertaken to break all crosses. The fourth caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad ruhighlights how ridiculous a notion this is when taken fully literally:.
His strategy will be to break every cross in the world, whatever material it is made of. He will visit every cathedral, every monastery, every church, every temple, every Christian hermitage. He will walk every street of every township and stare at every passer-by in search of any cross. Ladies perhaps will become the prime object of his scrutiny because he will be aware of their despicable habit of having crosses engraved upon their jewellery and ornaments.
He will take care of the fact that they also wear crosses hanging around their necks. Thus he will snatch away every bangle, every bracelet, every pendant and earring with the sign of the cross upon it.
Woe to the ladies who dare to cross the path of that Jesus asbut where can they escape and hide, the poor defenceless wretches? He will enter every house and search every cabinet and jewellery box. Every wall and every corner will be scanned.
Crosses must be literally broken and wiped crycifixion from the face of earth. Until he has accomplished this task to the full crucifictiion will not rest in peace. This is the vision of the Muslim orthodoxy of the mission of Jesus Christ as if ever he returns to earth.
The explanation of what this prophecy actually means and alludes to has been given to us in detail desdat Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as and the ongoing fulfilment of this prophecy has been seen in our very lifetimes. Then there came the time for the breaking of the Cross, i. Many television stations are showing documentaries and films presenting evidence that the Christian belief on the Crucifixion and Resurrection is incorrect. The film also explores ideas around Jesus as crucifixtion survived the Crucifixion.
After almost years of confusion and mystery over the events of deedta Crucifixion, and the life of Jesus as that followed, a detailed explanation and analysis was presented by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as. Combining fresh divine revelation with scholar-ship, crossing many religions and cultures, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as shone an illuminating light on these events. His book Masih Hinudstan Men Jesus in India laid the ground work for research that is carrying on to this day, examining evidence around Jesus as travelling to India.
This text is accepted by scholars as the first text on this subject to link the life of Jesus as in Palestine, and his surviving the Crucifixion, with his travels to the East and eventual burial in Srinagar, Kashmir. This lifting of darkness and confusion around the position of Jesus as is summarised by the Promised Messiah as stating in his book Jesus in India:. Night is gone whmed now it is day. Blessed is he who remains deprived no longer! Sahih BukhariVolume 3, Book 43, Number3: Email will not be published required.
