Da Vinci Code Broken?

Read Answers provided by Islam

Ancient secrets of the Church, hidden for centuries have actually been revealed and published in books prior to the fictional writings of Brown in the Da Vinci Code. Baigent and Leigh have produced other books from researchers point of view over the last two decades, including "Dead Sea Scrolls Deception", "Holy Blood, Holy Grail", and "Messianic Legacy." These books were the talk of the religious communities when they came out in the early 90's and certianly they have fueled an ongoing interest into just exactly who was this man Jesus, what was his message and what happened to him?

The Netzarim Response: What the above is saying is that we are to blindly believe a description of "Jesus" (whose given Hebrew Name was Y'Shua which means "Salvation") by Islamic scholars who adhere to a religion spawned 600 years after His death, which perpetrates hatred against the very people that Yahweh (God's TRUE Name) gave His Torah to; a religion concocted by the mind of a murdering, thieving pedophile, who was only a "mere man" who suffered from epileptic seizures, who was married to several women and whose grave we can visit today.....

Islam claims to "break the code" so to speak, over 1,400 years ago. The answer, according to Muslm scholars has been in the Quran for over fourteen hundred years.

The Netzarim Response: Unfortunately, Islam is an idea that was "borrowed" from the Tanach ("Old Testament"); twisted into something barely recognizable when compared to the original Scriptures; advocates hatred against God's Chosen people; and advocates the murder of anyone who refuses to believe in the "borrowed scriptures" of the Quran (which, for some inexplicable reason, was written in "King James" style)....

Some may be surprised to learn, Muslims believe in the miracle birth and other miracles associated with Jesus. They actually consider him as the "Messiah" and they even say, "peace be upon him" when mentioning his name. However, they are quick to negate any connection between God and Jesus as a partnership or God-head, and they rule out the notion of God having any son (or daughter for that matter).

The Netzarim Response: Yes, Muslims believe in the miracle birth - yet they choose to follow a mere man who performed NO miracles, got his "revelations" during epileptic fits, and murdered, abused, and pillaged innocent people in the name of his god.

Proverbs 30:4 tells us that the Father and the Son both have a NAME - not just a title, as does "Allah".

If Muslims "rule out the notion of God having any son (or daughter for that matter)", then how come the Quran says he has daughters? Their names are el-Lat, el-Uzza, and Manat according to Quran Chapter 53: 019....

Here is how Muslim scholars present their understanding and "break the code":

Creation itself tells us there is a creator and from the beginning of time – Allah, (the One God in Arabic) alone is to be worshiped.

The Netzarim Response: And where do we find "Allah" in the Bible - where we are told the Name of God? Doesn't it stand to reason that the "One God" would never negate His own original teachings or allow the twisting of His original Word which was laid down thousands of years before "Islam" was invented?

This is clear teaching throughout the Old testament (Torah), the scriptures that Jesus himself read and taught from. God is one not one of three; for example: 'He is God; there is no other besides Him'. (Deuteronomy 4:35). The same is mentioned in the book of Mark in the New Testament, chapter 12, verse 29, when Jesus, peace be upon him, had been asked about the Greatest Commandment he replied, "To know, O Israel, the Lord your God is One Lord; and you have to love Him with all your heart and all your mind and all your strength."

The Netzarim Response: First of all, Torah is not the "Old testament"; it is only the first five books of the Tanach. The statement that "God is one not three" is a misunderstanding of the Christian "trinity" concept that believes in the "Father, Son and Holy Spirit". They are not saying there are three Gods, but three "aspects" of ONE God. (This Christian concept actually puts God in a proverbial box, because the Bible shows He has revealed Himself in various other aspects including a burning bush and pillars of cloud and fire, etc.)

It's interesting to note that you are quoting Mark 12:29 (from the New Testament which you don't believe in, yet which apparently suits your purposes to help you refute the "Trinity" concept) in which Yeshua addresses Israel - the very people Muslims hate! Isn't this a bit hypocritical?

According to the oldest and most authentic copies of manuscipts and scrolls available throughout the centuries, Jesus, peace be upon him, never claimed to be God, or the creator, or the One to pray to, nor did he tell his followers to revere him as God. These notions appear on the lips of others who came along decades and even centuries later.

The Netzarim Response: First of all, you don't have to use "pbuh" with Yeshua, since He isn't dead; no body was ever found and we are told in Psalm 16:10 (of the "OT") and the Gospels that He was resurrected - and let's not forget the fact that He was foreshadowed throughout the Tanach. Furthermore, He has so far fulfilled four of the seven Biblical Feasts. What Biblical feasts did Muhammed fulfill, and exactly where was he foreshadowed since his name isn't even in the Bible?

While Jesus was on earth he did not claim to be the creator or ask us to revere him as God.

The Netzarim Response: Please see our article, Yeshua IS God and also read John 10:24-30 which says: 24 The Jews gathered around him, saying, "How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ,tell us plainly." 25 Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father's name speak for me, 26 but you do not believe because you are not my sheep. 27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand. 30 I and the Father are one."

His miraculous birth is a sign of his prophethood: “Verily, the likeness of Jesus before Allah, is the likeness of Adam. He (Allah) created him from dust and said “Be!” and he was” (Quran 3:59). Like all the great and noble prophets of Allah such as Adam, Abraham, Moses, Isaac and David, Jesus came with one message: Worship, love, obey and submit to the one true God, Allah, the creator of everything and do not worship anything besides Allah.

The Netzarim Response: You admit it was a "miraculous birth" and then turn right around and attempt to negate WHO He was! So, how do you explain His walking on water, turning water into wine, raising people from the dead, healing the sick and feeding thousands on just a few fish? Did Muhammed ever do any of these things?

Throughout history, people have taken to worship things or people alongside Allah, or just worshiping something else like power, status or money. Even the names of religions seem have more to do with the creation and less or nothing to do with the Creator. For example: Buddhism – Buddha (the name of a man), Confucianism – Confucius (the name of a man), Hinduism – Hind (the name of an area), Judaism – Judah (the name of a tribe) and Christianity – Christ (the name of a great prophet).

The Netzarim Response: What's the difference between that and what Muslims are doing by following the teachings of a mere man who stole Scriptures from the Torah and twisted them to suit his "new religion"?

Islam is different. Islam is a word coming from the verb "aslama" and it carries the meaning of "surrender", "submission", "obedience", "sincerity" and "peace" between you and Almighty Allah (God) and not to any human or anything within creation. Anyone who practices Islam submits to and worships Allah, alone without any partners of any kind.

The Netzarim Response: If Islam truly followed THE Creator, they would be calling God by His rightful Name, Yahweh, and following Torah to the letter. Instead, Muslims have chosen to follow the confused rantings of a man who received his "visions" during epileptic fits: The Dictionary of Islam notes: "According to unimpeachably authentic hadiths found in Bukhari, Muhammad would hear ringing in his ears; his heart would beat rapidly; his face would turn red; his breathing labored; he would fall to the ground or lie down; he would shake; his eyes would open wide; his lips tremble; spit drool from the corners of his mouth; he would sweat profusely; he saw and heard things no one else ever saw or heard; he would sometimes make a snoring noise like that of a camel; and he would be covered with a sheet. [vol. I, nos. 1, 2, 3, 4; vol. II, nos. chap. 16 (pg. 354), 544; vol. III, nos. 17, 829; vol. IV, nos. 95, 438, 458, 461; vol. V, nos. 170, 462, 618, 659; vol. VI, nos. 447, 448, 468, 478, 481, 508.]" - The Dictionary of Islam, p.393

The Quran states: "There is only One God (Allah) then have reverance for Me and fear Me (and Me alone)." To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and on earth, and to Him is duty due always: then will ye fear other than Allah?" (Quran 16:51-52)

The Netzarim Response: In view of the fact that Islam was spawned through the mind of a mere human 600 years after Christ, it doesn't matter what the "Quran" says, because it's "scriptures" are not God's original Word as is the "God-breathed" Tanach.

Isn't it time you join Jesus, the son of Mary, along with all of the other Prophets of Allah and practice the "Submission to the Will of God" (Islam)?

The Netzarim Response: Isn't it time you join Yahweh, our Creator, and His Son whom He sent to show us the things of God, how to worship and please Him, how to treat each other in a Godly manner (as opposed to brutally butchering people as the Muslims are fond of doing), and how to live according to Torah - God's original teachings and instruction? Isn't it time that you - rather than to become a suicide bomber and kill off innocent people in order to be assured a place in heaven - realized that Yahweh sent us a Final SIN Sacrifice via Yeshua? Yeshua is the ONLY way to gain eternal life (John 14:6)!

Isn't it time you realized that Yeshua - God's Divine Sin Sacrifice - died for us, while Allah expects you to die for him?

Or simply put: "Worship the Creator - and not His Creations!"

The Netzarim Response: AMEIN!...And His Name is YHWH!
