Did He Perform Miracles or Not?


By Sami Zaatari




Often times when one has a discussion with Christians concerning Jesus the Christian will talk about how Jesus raised the dead, healed the sick, turned water into wine, walked on water and so on, they will point to all the ?miracles' he performed and exclaim what a great man Jesus was. No doubt he was a great man, and no doubt these were great miracles with the exception of turning water into wine, but for now that is besides the point, it is an established fact that the Gospels record several of Jesus' miracles, there will be no need for us to go on and quote them.


But there is a problem, and that problem is that the Gospels actually record Jesus saying that he performed no miracles at all! Rather he performed only one miracle:


38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.  39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas (Matthew 12:38-39)

So as you can see, the Jews were asking for a sign from Jesus, a miracle, and Jesus tells them that they shall be given no sign but the sign of Jonah, now obviously this then means that the sign of Jonah is Jesus' only miracle and sign that he gave to the Jews. So if this is the case, it means that all those stories of Jesus turning water into wine, healing the sick, and raising the dead were all fabricated made up stories! Or rather it means that this verse I just quoted is a fabrication, either way someone is lying. It doesn't take a genius to figure out which passage is the lie and fabrication and which one isn't, it is very obvious that it is Matthew 12:38-39 that is a fabricated verse never uttered by Jesus, because it makes no sense of him to say that he will give no miracle but one when the Gospels record him giving several miracles!

It is obvious that this verse was fabricated and placed into the Gospel of Matthew to simply support the made up resurrection theory, that Jesus rose from the dead after 3 days and 2 nights. In fact what makes this verse even more interesting is that it contradicts the actually story of Jonah! Because Jonah was in the belly of the whale for 3 days and 3 nights, not 3 days and 2 nights, the resurrection story asserts that Jesus rose after 3 days and 2 nights, hence it is nothing like Jonah, and secondly Jonah was alive in the belly, he was not laying dead. So it is obvious this verse is a fabrication, and the proof of it is all these errors and illogical mistakes it keeps making, any reader with intelligence will not fail on noticing this.

However so if a Christian wants to be stubborn and claim that this verse is not a fabrication they are still left with a problem, because it contradicts other verses which says that Jesus did perform miracles hence were left with a contradiction and God's word does not have any contradiction, so either way the Christian still loses. The only option left is Islam.

And Allah Knows Best!
