Question from Jason in Dallas

Question: I wanna know and understand how a book can come 600 years after the crucifiction and contradict our historical sources which all attest to the fact that Jesus was Crucified by Pilate?

Thank you for posing this question. I am going to give you a quick answer, and you can read more about this specific issue in an essay I am writing. Anyway, now to the question. Muslims believe that the Quran was revealed by God to the Prophet (pbuh). So the number of years makes no difference. It could have been 600 or 6000 years after the event, and there would be no problem, as it was God the Almighty who has stated this. So the question itself is really a simple minded objection. I am not saying you are simple minded, but when Christian apologists use this objection, knowing full well that Muslims believe the Quran to be the word of God should have been enough to cause a refrain in posing such a weak objection. Thats the short answer. The long answer dealing with this and many other issues related to it will be in a short essay that will be put on the site at a later date. I hope this answers your question. If you have any additional questions please let me know.

Peace and Regards,
