Was Jesus Crucified for our Atonement


Jesus’ crucifixion in Christianity

Christians consider the crucifixion as the most important event in the

world and history. They believe that Allah (S.W) sent his son (Jesus) to die on the cross, to save humanity from the sin of their father Adam, and all their sins as well.

The Gospels assure – in long chapters- Jesus’ (PBUH) crucifixion, mentioning details of his capture, his prosecution, his crucifixion, his burial then his resurrection, and lastly, his ascending to heaven.

What indicates the importance of the crucifixion in the Christian belief is that Christians believe that God incarnated in Jesus for the crucifixion of God himself. The famous Protestant reformer Tomas Aconite (called the angelical doctor) described this as he said, “There are many opinions regarding the incarnation, some claim that the Son of God would have incarnated even if Adam did not commit a sin, while others believe the contrary.

It seems more correct to take the second opinion; as the Bible always tells us, “The first human sin was the reason for God’s incarnation”. Thus, we see that God made this incarnation to remedy the sin. Means without sin would be no incarnation.” 1

In his book “Eternity Priesthood”, the English cardinal, Mining, described the importance of this event. He said, “The importance of this event, which causes confusion, is clear! If Jesus’ crucifixion was not real, then all Christians’ beliefs would be destroyed from the roots.

If He did not die on the cross, there would be no sacrifice, no salvation, and no Trinity. Paul, the apostles, and all churches, also claim that if Jesus did not die, there would be no resurrection”.

In his book “The crucified God”, Jordan Maultman said, “Jesus’ death on the cross is the mainstay of Christianity. All Christians’ beliefs about God, creation, sins, and death are taken from the crucified Christ”. 2

This is what Paul assured when he canceled the role of the Law, depending on Jesus’ (PBUH) crucifixion to amend the sin; Jesus saved us from the Law’s curse by doing so. He said, “And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.” (1 Corinthians 15:14)

Thus, we can see clearly the importance of this event in the Christian belief, as Christians believe that it is the mainstay of human life in this world.

Jesus’ crucifixion in Islam

The Islamic opinion of Jesus’ (PBUH) crucifixion is that he (PBUH) was never crucified, as the Jews and Christians claim. Muslims derive their opinion, which oppose what the Gospels mention, from the Quranic verses, which confirm this opinion.

The Quranic verses mention the conspiracy that happened to Jesus (PBUH). They mention many other things, which the reader could notice them. It mentioned Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue from his enemies’ conspiracy.

Allah (S.W.), while listing His blessings and graces to Jesus (PBUH) says, “And behold! I did restrain the Children of Israel from (violence to) thee” (Alma’ida: 110)

This response from Allah (S.W) was on that crucial day, on which the Romans and the Jews conspired in order to kill and crucify Jesus (PBUH). However, Allah (S.W) turned their conspiracy down. “And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah.” (Al Imran: 54), Allah (S.W) saved His prophet –Jesus (PBUH) – from their conspiracy and deception.

The Quranic verses mention some accounts of this Jewish conspiracy. “That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah.;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:- Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise”. (An NiSA’:157-158)

Another verse pointed to Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue and his ascending to heaven. “Behold! Allah said: “O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection.” (Al Imran: 55)

The verses also pointed at his rescue. Allah (S.W) says, “He shall speak to the people in childhood and in maturity.” (Al Imran: 46)

It is known that Jesus (PBUH) was ascended to heaven in his thirties. Elderliness, in language, is coupled with old age. Means, after Jesus passing the first stage of his life he will live and reach the elderliness and he will talk to people. There is no other meaning; otherwise, it is not necessary to mention elderliness and his ability to talk when talking about Jesus’ (PBUH) miracles, because every one is able to talk in his old age, and no miracle in that.

The Holy Quran mentions, in another verse, that Jesus (PBUH) will descend to earth in the last days and before the Judgment Day.

Allah (S.W) says, “And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of) the Hour (of Judgment): therefore have no doubt about the (Hour).” (Az Zukhruf: 61)

Allah (S.W) also says, “And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them.” (An Nisa’: 159)

Neither the Quranic verses nor Prophet Mohammad’s (PBUH) sayings mentioned any details of Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue. Therefore, Muslim scholars had to search for the truth that the Holy Quran mentions from what the people of the book passed to us. Alternatively, they searched the Holy Bible, to find out how Jesus (PBUH) was saved from the Jews’ conspiracy.

The Holy Quran mentions the occurrence of the crucifixion but not for Jesus (PBUH). It shows the Jews’ and others’ ignorance of the identity of the crucified person. It also shows their disagreement about who he was, because Allah (S.W.) made the crucified person look the same as Jesus (PBUH).

Allah (S.W.) says, “They killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts.” (An Nisa’: 157)

The doubt in this verse is about the identity of the crucified person. The Holy Quran does not specify his identity, but it does assure Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue and his ascending to heaven. “For of a surety they killed him not:- Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise”. (An Nisa’: 157- 158)

Thus, The Holy Quran mentions Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue and his ascending to heaven. His enemies, who wanted to crucify him, were in doubt and crucified another person. Allah (S.W.) raised Jesus (PBUH), and he will be back before the Day of Judgment. His coming (PBUH) will be a sign of the end of this life on earth.

The importance of disproving Jesus’ (PBUH) crucifixion, for Muslims

Muslims believe that prophets die like all human beings and they might be murdered. The Holy Quran tells us that the Israeli people (Bani Israel) killed many prophets for no reason.

Thus, for us, there is no big deal if a prophet was killed by the criminals and the fools of his people. Killing does not harm the killed prophet, but it is a selection from Allah (S.W), and martyrdom for His sake (S.W.) and His religion.

Then, why does the Holy Quran mention Jesus’ (PBUH) rescue, and insists on disproving Christians in this matter?

The Holy Quran mentions Jesus’ rescue to declare the truth, and to prove the weakness of the Jews and their inability to achieve what they intended to do. When M
