Question: Jesus said that his miracle would be like Jonah. Jonah was buried in the stomach of the whale for three days and Jesus was buried in the earth for three days. It’s known that Jonah didn’t die, so how do you think Jesus being crucified (which mean dead) and he said I will be like Jonah? –Mohamed
Question: Jesus as you claim was crucified on Friday and then Mary went on Sunday, and she didn’t find him in his grave, which with counting it’s not three days. Do you still believe that Jesus was crucified? –Mohamed
Answer: In no way meaning to cop out on these questions, but as I fall into the realm of the Critical deists, I do not follow the belief of the divinity and prophecy of Jesus. While it is possible that there was a historical Jesus of Nazareth, the man described in the bible is not him. The bible in fact, gives two marker events for Jesus’ time of birth that lay 10 years apart. That’s not the kind of discrepancy I think you’re allowed when speaking of the birth of the savior of the world.
To extend it further, I do not believe in the Messianic concept either. For there to be a man chosen of god to do his will, god would have to have a will that was understandable by the frame of the human mind. This hardly seems like something that is achievable.
