Interaction with Muslims over at Paul Williams web-site.  (no longer available as Paul B. Williams has changed his blog at least 3 times.)

The Qur’an also affirms the substitutionary atonement that was prophesied and foreshadowed and foretold in Genesis 22. Surah Al Saffat 37:107 – “We ransomed Him with a mighty sacrifice.” و فدینه بذبح عظیم By affirming the truth of Genesis 22, Muhammad affirmed the truth of substitutionary atonement and redemption. فدینه is from the word for “redemption”, فدا ، فدیه The innocent ram in Genesis 22, (and lambs, goats, sheep in Exodus 12, book of Leviticus, Isaiah 53) – all point to the sins being layed on the innocent victim and being sacrificed ذبح / slaughtered in the place of the guilty humans/sinners. “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and give His life a ransom (فد یه، فدا ) for many.”…

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)
