The Muslim Jesus
Yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? John , NRSV. This passage shows us that the author of the Gospel of John is in a different paradigm than earlier New Testament authors insofar as he no longer expects Jesus' imminent second coming. Paul, for example, who wrote in the decades immediately following Jesus' death and resurrection, believed that Jesus would return while most of the people he was preaching to were still alive.
The author of the Gospel of John looks for new meaning in Jesus' promise of the Spirit of Truth or Advocate because he realizes he will die before Jesus returns.

When his Gospel was published he was likely already dead and his community was looking forward into a longer and more complicated future than originally expected. Deuteronomy is the latest text of the Torah--it reiterates the Law of Moses as told in the four earlier books--and like the Gospel of John it predicts a future prophet:.
I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their own people; I will put my words in the mouth of the prophet, who shall speak to them everything that I command. Deut , NRSV. Both Deuteronomy and the Gospel of John are reflections on specific revelations--the Torah and Gospel--and both indicate that there is more revelation to come.
The Gospel of John's language for the Spirit of Truth or Advocate is strikingly similar to Deuteronomy's: "he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come" John , NRSV. Like Deuteronomy, the Gospel of John opens up an expectation for future revelation. John's prophecy is not so specific that it must apply to Muhammad and only Muhammad.
But insofar as the Qur'an makes the claim that Muhammad is the Spirit of Truth or Advocate that Jesus foretold, a strong interpretive option emerges for Christians to receive Muhammad as a prophet that Jesus predicts when he says:. I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. In this passage, the description of the Advocate or Spirit of Truth is qualitatively different than earlier mentions. Here we see the Spirit of Truth speaking not through the disciples but to them.
Earlier, in John , Jesus says that this Spirit of Truth will abide with his followers and be in them; throughout the Gospel of John the Holy Spirit is spoken of as an abiding, inner presence. Again, in , Jesus says that the Advocate will "remind you of all that I have said to you. Essentially, this would have been the experience of the beloved disciple, the author of the Gospel of John, who was guided by the presence of the Spirit in remembering and interpreting Jesus' words and deeds which he does spiritually rather than literally.
However, in John , Jesus is talking about a Spirit of Truth who will bring forth new revelations, who will say the "many things" that Jesus does not say because his followers "cannot bear them now. The clear distinction is that the Spirit of Truth in John 16 is predicted to declare new revelations not merely remind Jesus' disciples of what he already said, as in John The idea that he will "declare to you the things that are to come" is especially important because it acknowledges the uncertainty about the future that Jesus' followers faced, given the fact that he had not returned as soon as expected.
Jesus asserts that this future prophet will glorify him by declaring a new revelation that will come from the same source as his message: God. This discourse is designed to open the minds of Christians to receive a future revelation not as something that competes with or diminishes the Gospel, but rather as something that glorifies Jesus.
Did Allah Help Spread Christianity?
Unfortunately, these words in the Gospel of John have been totally missed by Christians who reject and belittle the Qur'an; we have for the most part completely ignored the unity of the Gospel and the Qur'an in terms of their common revelatory source. However, if we take Jesus' words seriously, we have the opportunity to receive the Word of God in the Qur'an in accordance with Jesus' promise that the Spirit of Truth "will take what is mine and declare it to you.
In the First Letter of John, which was written after the Gospel of John and is very similar to it, we find a continuation of the Gospel of John's multivalent way of speaking about the Spirit as applying to the Holy Spirit as well as to prophets inspired by the Spirit. In 1 John and 1 John , the author speaks about the gift of the Holy Spirit and how it abides in Jesus' followers. But in 1 John , in between these mentions of the Holy Spirit, the author speaks at length about testing the spirits. I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison.
In this hadith, Muhammad is interrogating the Jews of Khaybar. After a verbal sparring match with them, he comes to the point. Thus, Jews wanted to see if the poison would affect him, and it did. So why could he not heal himself by the power of Allah? The Quran teaches that Muhammad could work no miracles go here and here for more information. The hadith seems also to hint at revenge in the words "we would get rid of you.
He massacres the Jewish men and pubescent boys and enslaved the women and children of the Qurayza tribe AD Muhammad the newcomer to Medina had caused the Jews a lot of needless tragedy and grief. See this article for more information on Muhammad and his bout with poison. The article discusses the inconsistency of why Muhammad superstitiously said to eat Ajwa dates to prevent the effects of poison, but here he is dying from it, at least in part. Hilali and Khan. This verse is not specific or accurate or relevant to his death.
First, it says nothing about poison being a cause of death. In this hadith, she is talking with her father, who reveals a secret premonition that she divulges only after his death. When the Prophet died, I asked her about it. She [Khadijah] replied. I think this portends my death, and you will be the first of my family to follow me. Incidentally, a hadith says that Fatima died six months after her father. Which wife should he stay with? It was his favorite, Aisha, his child-bride, who got this privilege. He betrothed her when she was six years old, and they sexually consummated their marriage when she was nine years old.
She was never able to bear him a child. Go here and here for more information. During his fatal ailment, Allah's Apostle used to ask his wives, "Where shall I stay tomorrow? Where shall I stay tomorrow? So all his wives allowed him to stay where he wished, and he stayed at 'Aisha's house till he died there. Allah took him unto Him while his head was between my chest and my neck and his saliva was mixed with my saliva.
While the Muslims were offering the Fajr prayer on Monday and Abu Bakr was leading them in prayer, suddenly Allah's Apostle lifted the curtain of 'Aisha's dwelling and looked at them while they were in the rows of the prayers and smiled. Abu Bakr retreated to join the row, thinking that Allah's Apostle wanted to come out for the prayer.
The Muslims were about to be put to trial in their prayer i. But Allah's Apostle beckoned them with his hand to complete their prayer and then entered the dwelling and let fall the curtain. This is one of many passages in the hadith that point to the rightfulness of Abu Bakr becoming the successor or caliph, according to Sunni Islam. But Muhammad did not clarify in no uncertain terms who this should be. Fatima and Al 'Abbas came to Abu Bakr [the first Caliph], seeking their share from the property of Allah's Apostle, and at that time, they were asking for their land at Fadak [property of Jews that was conquered] and their share from Khaibar.
Abu Bakr said to them, "I have heard from Allah's Apostle saying, 'Our property cannot be inherited, and whatever we leave is to be spent in charity, but the family of Muhammad may take their provisions from this property. This issue of wills has been discussed here. An Ansari woman who gave the pledge of allegiance to the Prophet that the Ansar drew lots concerning the dwelling of the Emigrants.
