وَمَكَرُوا وَمَكَرَ اللَّهُ ۖ وَاللَّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ
“and they plotted/schemed/tricked/deceived, and Allah schemed, and Allah is the best schemer/ trickster / deceiver.”
Qur’an Surah 3:54
We have this word in Farsi also, ظاهر – “obvious”, “manifest”, “clear”. (the plural is in the Qur’an, ظاهرین – Zahereen, “the manifest ones”.) The problem with your analysis is that when both Surah 61:14 and 3:55 are studied together, 3:55 uses another word, Foq فوق , which we also have, “above”, “high”, “uppermost”, “superior”, etc. – it becomes clear that the Qur’an teaches that the original disciples of Jesus became the most numerous ones, the dominant and obvious and manifest ones, and history shows theses are the followers of Jesus who preached the gospel in the first century, wrote the NT books from around 45 AD to 96 AD; believed in the atonement, crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus; believed that He was the eternal Son, the eternal Word who became human and was born of the virgin Mary, and they believed in His Deity, Lordship, Messiahship, and His Kingdom and ascension into heaven; and His Deity, with the Deity of the Holy Spirit, and the Oneness of God (God is One, Mark 12:29; 1 Timothy 2:5) all provided the basis for the formulation of the Doctrine of the Trinity. (Matthew 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14)
Peter, James, John, Paul, Barnabas all agreed with each other in doctrine from the beginning.
The Apostle Paul wrote, around 48-49 AD, right before the Council of Jerusalem in Acts 15:
7 “But on the contrary, seeing that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been to the circumcised 8 (for He who effectually worked for Peter in his apostleship to the circumcised effectually worked for me also to the Gentiles), 9 and recognizing the grace that had been given to me, James and Cephas (Peter) and John, who werereputed to be pillars, gave to me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, so that we might go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. 10 They only asked us to remember the poor—the very thing I also was eager to do.”
Galatians 2:7-10 (my emphasis)
Peter, James, John, Paul and Barnabas all agreed with each other at the Council of Jerusalem in 50 AD – Acts 15, which took place a little after Paul wrote the letter to the Galatians. (around 49 AD)
no; the weight of evidence in both Ayehs in the Qur’an (3:55 and 61:14) along with history and Christian theology proves you and the Qur’an are wrong, since those 2 Ayehs contradict the claims of Islam makes about itself in regard to the Deity of Christ, the cross and resurrection and the doctrine of the Trinity. Those 2 verses prove the followers of Jesus were those who affirmed the Death and Resurrection, Deity of Christ, and Trinity.
Even Yusuf Ali, the translator and commentator on one of the most widely used English translations of the Qur’an, on page 1742 in the footnote on Surah 61:14 says:
after noting that enemies of Christ (The Jews, who plotted, schemed, deceived, etc. and thought they crucified Al Masih, 4:157, 3:54) were defeated, “Jerusalem was destroyed by Titus in 70 AD, and the Jews been scattered ever since. . . . On the other hand, those who followed Jesus permeated the Roman Empire, brought many new races within their circle, and throughout the Roman Empire, Christianity became the dominant religion of the world until the advent of Islam.”
