Jesus a Perfect sacrifice ?

Dear brothers and sisters,

The Christian belief can be summed up in a few phrases;

1. Jesus was absolutely sinless
2. we are born sinners [Ro 5:12]
3. Jesus allowed himself to be killed to redeem the born sinners.

These three concepts are linked together and is the fundamental base for the
majority of Christians.

In this section, we will address the first part of this three part religion.

First we will see how according to the first half of the Bible, the (Torah
[Old Testament]), that Jesus does not match the concept of a Sacrificial lamb
for some very obvious reasons.

According to the Torah, for a lamb to be accepted as a sacrifice to atone for
sin, some standards must be met first;

In {Exodus 12:5-7} we examine the incompatibility

1. A sacrificial lamb according to the Torah must be unblemished

yet we read that Jesus prior to his sacrifice was beaten, and spat upon {Mt

2. A sacrificial lamb must be -one- year old.

Jesus was over thirty years old {Lk 3:23}

3. The lamb is to be sacrificed in the evening.

Jesus was sacrificed at 3 in the afternoon {Mark 15:25}

Now we move to the second half of the Bible, the Gospel and confirm that
Jesus also did not qualify as a perfect sacrifice for sins.

Others who spoke _about_ Jesus in the Gospel claimed;

"You know that he appeared to take away sins, and in him there is no sin."
{1Jo 3:5}

Here we see that those who spoke of Jesus assumed Jesus lived a sinless life
according to the Bible, but if we research the life of Jesus according
to the Gospel, we come upon many incidences where Christ disproves
those who labeled him as a faultless being;

For example;

1. Jesus taught to that getting angry is considered a sin and even
punishable by hell {Matthew 5:21-22}.

yet there are many times in the Bible where Jesus vividly and loudly
displayed anger.

[Mark 3:5, Matthew 21:12-15; Mark 11:15-19; Luke 19:45-47; John 2:13-17,
Matthew 21:19; Mark 11:12-14, Matthew 12:22-31; Mark 3:20-30, Matthew
11:22-24; Luke 10:13-15.]

2. The Gospel teaches to be honest [Matthew 15:19; Mark 7:22, John 8:44],
not to give false statements

Then we see Jesus doing just that, when Jesus was asked to go to Jerusalem,
Jesus told them that he would not be going, but then he later went secretly
to Jerusalem by himself ( John 7:2-10 ). (Note: the words "not yet"
which appear in some versions at John 7:8 are an editorial "emendation"
to the original text in an apparent effort to rectify the false
statement by Jesus.

During his hearing before the high priest, Jesus said: "I have spoken openly
to the world; I have -always- taught in the synagogues and in the temple,
where all Jews come together; I -never- spoke secretly" (John 18:20) This is in
direct conflict, to what we find elsewhere.

He taught on the "mount" (5:1-7:28), by the sea (Matthew 13:1), on the plain
(Luke 6:17-49), and in other places. To his disciples he said: "To you
has been given the -secret- of the kingdom of God, but for those outside
everything is in parables; so that they may indeed see but not

perceive, and indeed hear but not understand; lest they should turn
about and be forgiven" (Mark 4:11-12).

3. John's Baptism was for the "Forgiveness of Sins"

Jesus was Baptized {Mark 1:4}

4. Suicide is a sin (1Corinthians 3:17) and (Exodus 20:13).

according to Paul, Jesus ALLOWED himself to die. (John 19:30)

Furthermore, Jesus even claims to be a sinner according to the Bible;

"Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good-except God alone."
{Mark 10:18}

Jesus stated that anyone ((without sin)) to condemn a woman who had sinned,
than he himself declined;

Joh 8:11 "...And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin
no more."

Of course this article is not to degrade our beloved Prophet Jesus, it is only
to show that (((according to the Bible))) Jesus was not the perfect
sacrifice which modern Christians claim him to be.

In Islam, Jesus was sent By God to assist the children of Israel avoid sin
through wise words and miraculous signs. Jesus is described in the
Qur'an as Righteous, one of the Most honored of those whom God sent,
Noble and Humble.

Muslims love Jesus, we take the burden which Christians try to pass on to
Jesus and we take responsibility for our own actions instead of expecting Jesus
(Blessings be upon him) to pay for our own debauchery.
