Apologetics and Agape

Muslims have a seed of the teaching of substitutionary ransom sacrifice in their own Qur’an, Surah 37:107 – “We have ransomed him with a mighty sacrifice”.  When Allah stopped Ibrahim from killing his son, Allah provided a substitutionary sacrifice – a ransom, an atonement – which the Qur’an got from Genesis 22, and which was a prophesy and foreshadowing of the Messiah Jesus to come.   This is a Turkish post card, produced by a Muslim group in Turkey, celebrating the “Kurban Bayrami” (Feast of Sacrifice) – (“Eid e Ghorban” – Farsi = عید قربان ) or “Eid Al Adha” – Arabic – عید الاضحی ).  You can see the Turkish that says, “Hazrat Ibrahim offers his son Ismael as a human sacrifice.”  Muslims think it was Ishmael, even though the text of the Qur’an never mentions him in that context.  But we know it was Isaac from Genesis 22…

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)
