The First Born Poem by zaheer uddin

The First Born



No father's seed
No mother's womb
a miracle beyond compare- -
Yet Jesus they say is the son of God
And Adam the Supreme Will- - -


The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: 'Be'. And he was.
(Quran3: 59)



Is Jesus the Son of God? Matthew 3: 17 could be used by some Christians to support the divine Sonship of Jesus. If Matthew 3: 17, "And Lo a voice for heaven, saying, this is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased, " is used to support divine Sonship, then there should be no other verse that contradicts or gives equal divine Sonship to another person or persons in the Old or New Testament. However, many references were found in the Old and New Testaments that mentioned someone other than Jesus as having a divine Sonship to God. See Exodus 4: 22: "Israel is my son, even my firstborn." II Samuel 7: 14 and I Chronicles 22: 10: "...and he shall be my son (Solomon) ." Jeremiah 31: 9: "...and Ephraim is my firstborn." Also, Psalm 2: 7. The word "Son" must not be accepted literally because God addresses many of his chosen servants as son and sons. The Jews have also claimed Ezra to be the Son of God. The New Testament Greek words used for "son" (pias and paida, which mean servant or son in the sense of servant) are translated as son in reference to Jesus and as servant in reference to others in some translations of the Bible. Further, the term "Father" as used by Jesus corresponds more closely to the term Rabb, i.e. One who nourishes and sustains, so that in Jesus' doctrine, God is "Father" - Nourisher and Sustainer - of all men. The New Testament also interprets "son of God" to be mystical: "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." (Romans 8: 14) . This mystical suggestion is further supported with Jesus being called the only begotten Son of God. In Psalm 2: 7, the Lord said to David: "...Thou art my son: this day have I begotten thee." Does this mean that God had two sons? Jesus also said that God is not only his Father but also your Father (Matthew 5: 45,48) . Luke 3: 38 says: "...Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the Son of God." Who is mentioned in Hebrews 7: 3 as like unto the Son of God? It is Melchisedec, King of Salem, as mentioned in Hebrews 7: 1. He (Melchisedec) is more unique than Jesus or Adam. Why is he not preferred to be the Son of God? Moreover, Adam did not have a mother or father, but was the first human being created by God and in the likeness of God to exist in the Garden of Eden and on earth. Wouldn't this give more rights to Adam to be called the Son of God in its truest meaning? I would like to share with you an obvious contradiction between John 3: 16, Luke 10: 25-28 and Matthew 19: 16-17. John 3: 16 reads: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten, Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Now let's read Luke 10: 25-28: And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, what is written in the law? How readest Thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and Thou shalt live. These verses tell us that the inheritance of eternal life is for anyone who believes and worships no other God, but the One True God. Luke 10: 25-28 agrees with Matthew 19: 16-17 which says; "And behold, one came and said to him (Jesus) , Good teacher, what good things shall I do that I may have eternal life? So he (Jesus) said to him, ‘Why do you call me good? - No one is good but One that is, God. But if you want to enter into eternal life, keep the commandments." There is no commandment that says to worship Jesus, but there that tells us to worship God alone. In Luke 4: 41, Jesus refused to be called the Son of God by demons. Do you think that Jesus would rebuke the demons, or anyone else for that matter, for telling the truth? Unquestionably, no! Jesus rebuked the demons because they were saying something false by calling him the Son of God. Also, if the demons knew that Jesus was the Christ, for Jesus to shut them up because they called him the Christ is a contradiction to Jesus' mission. In Luke 9: 20 & 21, Jesus said unto his disciples: "But who say ye that I am? Peter answered saying, "The Christ of God, and Jesus straightly charged them and commanded them to tell no man that thing." Furthermore, verses like John 3: 2, John 6: 14, John 7: 40, Matthew 21: 11, Luke 7: 16 and 24: 19 confirm that Jesus accepted the title of teacher, Prophet and called himself the son of man in Matthew 8: 20,12: 40,17: 9 & 12,26: 24, Luke 9: 26,22: 48,22: 69, and 24: 7. The most conclusive verse that says Jesus is the son (servant) of man is Mark 14: 26 where Jesus is mentioning the Day of Reckoning. Jesus specifically said we would see the son of man, not the Son of God, sitting in the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. The act of begetting is a physical act and such act is against God's nature. The Qur'an 19: 35 says: "It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! When He determines a matter He only says to it "Be, " and it is." (Maryam 19: 35) The teachings of Jesus as the Son of God were not preached by Jesus nor accepted by Jesus, but were taught by Paul as supported in Acts 9: 20: "And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God." Paul was not a messenger-not even a disciple-had never amet jesus in life-why the teachings of Paul deviate from the original teachings of Jesus-JESUS himself said that he had only come to confirm the law and did not deviate from the teachings of Moses-Paul does not find it necessary to follow the teachings of Jesus or Moses- Jesus never said he was the son of God nor did any or his disciples- the early christians did not believe that Jesus was the son of God-the most important thing to note is that Paul claims to have recieved revelation from Jesus whereas Jesus himself and all the other prophets recieved revelation directly from God through angel Gabriel - Why Jesus should deviate from his teachings in a supposed vision of Paul
