Enoch never experienced death, so did Elijah. Life and death is the power of God. He has dominion over every minute aspects and events. As mortals, we are awed considering many to be miracles.
Yes, Christ died but He is not Dead. Resurrection was not an uncommon phenomenon back then, before and after. I have listened to many interpretations of what the Quran has to to say about Christ and Mary. And resurrection was not uncommon to the writer of the Quran. For the amount of written comments about Jesus in the Quran, the Quran itself establishes the reality of His divinity.
Mark, the first gospel writer wrote of Christ as His teacher. And his accounts stopped at the scene of an empty tomb. A clear statement that Christ is alive.
Yes, Christ died but He is not Dead - Now this is what I call crazy logic.
For the amount of written comments about Jesus in the Quran, the Quran itself establishes the reality of His divinity. - Interesting that all the statements in the Qur'an clearly stated that Jesus is NOT divine. You don't have to assume what the statements mean as they are crystal clear. Nothing like how you have to find ways to fully grasp the utterings of the Bible. Jesus is no different from any other prophet. No better nor worse.
A clear statement that Christ is alive - If Jesus is alive, where is he and how you think he must look now given that he would be 2000+ years old.
For the rational minded person who reads the written words about Christ in the Quran they themselves would honor His Divinity. I expect a lot of muslims will see the light when enlightement comes to them. Maybe some has already, but the fear of death keeps Christ quietly, in their hearts.
Celestial Beings doan age. Angels, Archangels and Ministering Angels are forever the same.
The Middle-East, before Christ, was no diiferent than India, gods of all descriptions. Many of the nations in that region would adhere to the teachings of Christ through the Apostles and Paul. But there lies the nation state of Arabia, approximately 600 years after Christ, still worship mulitudes of gods.
It has been stated over and over, Mohammad was illiterate in a household with a vast library. And he was taught to read. From the beliefs of Mohammad concerning a monolithic God, one can conclude the library would have had the Gospels, the Torah(The Books of Moses) and most certain the Book of Enoch. He also was a man who had had business dealings with people of all faiths in the region.
Convinced of only one God, he would do what Moses did to the Hittites, the Amorites and all the others who worshipped idols. Declared war and killed the heathens. Which Mohammad did and began teaching Arabians about the One God.
Mohammad had enough written material to teach from.
When Christ came, he reasoned with his listeners about God. He came with a message that was not written anywhere. The Jews knew of their God-according to Moses Laws. There is this man who spoke of freedom for slaves when the world at that time were determined to be 75% slaves. He spoke of a new kingdom. He said a great many things. And He said, that He came from the realm of God and Him and the Father are one.
And the Deciples saw Him on a cross. His pain escruciating, And uttered, the words.
It must have been devasting for the deciples. Jesus left no wriiten accounts or instructions. They expected a fullfilment of what He said in real time.
And so, the deciples sought to undersatnd what had taken place. And they started with the utterance,"Father why has thou forsaken Me." They would find the reasoning for those words in the Psalms. From that point onward the Holy Spirit would guide them through the Torah for the prophecies related to His coming.
Some 50 yeras later after the resurrection, The Gospels are written and letters of Paul. All with aim of an explanation of what took place.
