Jesus Christ said “I was dead, and now I am alive forevermore – into eternity”. I will never forget in 1986, first hearing a debate between Josh McDowell & the famous Muslim debater and showman, Ahmed Deedat. The debate took place in 1981, but I first heard the cassette recording in 1986. I will never forget Josh standing up and quoting this verse, after Deedat said, “In all the 27 books of the NT, Jesus Christ never said, “I was dead, now I am alive”
Dr. Rob Plummer of The Southern Baptist Seminary, goes through the Greek of this verse.
The Full Debate here: “Was Jesus Crucified?”
The Debate was later put into a full length book, with background explanation of the religion of Islam, it’s history, doctrines, practices, and sects. I read this along time ago; (around 1986-1987), so I don’t remember the contents.
