I listened to the Muslim prayer. They pray to god of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and Jesus. I was wondering if this is the same god as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Also, is this related to the god of Old Testament?

Also is this related to the god of Talmud? The Talmud says Jesus is a criminal paedophile blasphemer and his mother was a prostitute. So, is the Talmudioc god the same as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?

  • Is this in scope for Christianity.stackhouse? Also should have a specific citation for claims about Talmudic references to Jesus and his mother. Mar 28 '15 at 7:11

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it doesn't seem to be asking about the beliefs and practices of Christians.

    I don't want this question closed, not because it fits or doesn't fit, but because I want to know the answer. Mar 28 '15 at 12:48

1.The Jewish and Islamic concept of God is the same: one God, one person, one mind.This is same in Talmud, a central text of Rabbinic Judaism written between 200 CE/AD- 500 CE/AD.Thus it is different from the Triune God of Trinitarian Christianity, God as three persons, three minds, co-equal and co-eternal, one in essence, nature, power, action, and will.

2.The Talmud does contain references alleged to be a about Jesus Christ and his mother Miriam, where he is referred to as Yashu (believed by some Christians to be derogatory). For example:

Yashu is in Hell being boiled in hot excrement.” (Gittin 57a)

Yashu (Jesus) was sexually immoral and worshipped a brick.” (Sanhedrin 107b)

“Yashu (Jesus) was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness and refused to repent.” (Sotah 47a)

“Miriam the hairdresser had sex with many men.” (Shabbath 104b, Hebrew Edition only)

“She who was the descendant of princes and governors (the virgin Mary) played the harlot with carpenters.” (Sanhedrin 106a)

“Christians who reject the Talmud will go to hell and be punished there for all generations.” (Rosh Hashanah 17a)

However, this does not mean that what is written in Talmud is what all Jewish people believe or practise or most of them for that matter.It only reflects Rabbinic exegeses and commentaries.

    In contrast, Quran, Islam holy book, mentions Jesus Christ 25 times and speaks highly of him and his mother, mentioned 50 times.She is mentioned more in the Quran than in the entire New Testament and is also the only woman mentioned by name in the Quran.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_in_Islam)

  • @nasraya Well, except that some of the references are really about Miriam, Moses' sister

    Your comment is really surprising: there is no other Miriam mentioned in the Quran other than Miriam the mother of Jesus Christ! Moses' sister mentioned once without mentioning her name.Miriam is the Aramaic-Hebrew name of the mother of Jesus Christ, her real name. I urge my Christian brothers and sisters to do serious research on their own.

    @ curiousdannii Well my Christian brother I will leave it to any truth seeker among my good Christian brothers and sisters in this site to research it impartially themselves and I am sure God will guide them to the truth concerning Sura 19:27-28. I give them Christ advise when he said:" "...But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you"-Matthew 6:5-6. I am not here to engage in religious polemics.Nevertheless, the Quran mentions only one Miriam who is Christ noble, saintly mother
