Judas Iscariot is not the Saviour of Christians!

Islam vs. Christianity:

"This point is of special concern to Christians, since the Qur'an denies the bare fact of the death of Jesus on the cross, and Muslims still consider that this denial outweighs the contrary testimony of historical tradition." (Muhammad: Prophet and Statesman, W. Montgomery Watt, 1961, p229-235)

"they did not slay him, neither crucified him, only a likeness of that was shown to them" (Qur'an 4:156)

Muslims teach that Judas, not Jesus, was crucified on the cross, in a case of mistaken identity. Muslims teach that Judas Iscariot, the betrayer and thief, is the real saviour of Christians. Muslims teach that it was actually Judas who actually died on the cross and because Judas had a similar physical appearance to Jesus even his own mother didn't recognize him as the wept at the foot of the cross. For 600 years Christians had been preaching Christ crucified. Then Muhammad comes along, jumps off his camel and gets a direct revelation from God that the universal record of history and the 10,000 manuscripts of the Bible, are all wrong. The idea that Judas was crucified instead of Christ, is so outrageous, no educated person would consider it. Even atheists, modernists and Bible haters who reject the resurrection of Christ consider Muhammad's story of the cross nothing other than a myth and contrary to the undisputed facts of history.

"John Subhan had been a Sufi Muslim preparing for the priesthood. In school, it was common to hear his instructors attack Christianity. But one day while Subhan was walking home from class, he noticed a scrap of paper tossed by the wind across his path. It turned out to be a page from Matthew's Gospel, describing the crucifixion and death of Christ. "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?" He read the words over and over again. Now this astonished Subhan. He had been taught that Jesus Christ had not really been crucified but that Christ's likeness had fallen on Judas. It was Judas who had hung on that cross, not Jesus. Christ had ascended to Heaven before the crucifixion." (More to be Desired than Gold, True Stories Told by Christy Wilson, pp. 20-21, 1992)

Muslims, quote atheists, modernists and Bible haters like Winwond Reade and Arthur Weigall, to trash all of Christianity. Yet amazingly, although Weigall does trash all of Christianity and even rejects the doctrine of Christ's blood atonement as a pagan doctrine, he does believe that the crucifixion was an historic fact... Just not for the same reasons that Christian's believe he was crucified.

Yet both Read and Weigall believe the crucifixion of Christ to be an historical fact:

Muslims Reject the Trinity and the Deity of Christ:

Muslims reject ANY pre-existence of Jesus:

Muslims reject the concept of Sonship of Christ:

Muslims Reject that Jesus died and His resurrection:

Muslims believe the faked, Gospel of Barnabas that Judas was crucified being mistaken for Jesus and that Jesus lived to old age:

"Accordingly they led Judas to Herod, who of a long time had desired that Jesus should go to his house. ... Now when Judas had been led thither, Herod asked him of many things, to which Judas gave answers not to the purpose, denying that he was Jesus. ... Then Herod mocked him, with all his court, and caused him to be clad in white as the fools are clad, and sent him back to Pilate ... Thereupon, in mockery they clad him [Judas] in an old purple garment, saying: 'It is fitting to our new king to clothe him and crown him': so they gathered thorns and made a crown, like those of gold and precious stones which kings wear on their heads. And this crown of thorns they placed upon Judas' head, putting in his hand a reed for sceptre, and they made him sit in a high place. And the soldiers came before him, bowing down in mockery, saluting him as King of the Jews. And they held out their hands to receive gifts, such as new kings are accustomed to give ; and receiving nothing they smote Judas, saying: 'Now, how art thou crowned, foolish king, if thou wilt not pay thy soldiers and servants?' ... Verily I say that the voice, the face, and the person of Judas were so like to Jesus, that his disciples and believers entirely believed that be was Jesus ... Jesus replied, embracing his mother: 'Believe me, mother, for verily I say to thee that I have not been dead at all ; for God hath reserved me till near the end of the world.' ... And though I have been innocent in the world, since men have called me "God," and "Son of God," God, in order that I be not mocked of the demons on the day of judgement, hath willed that I be mocked of men in this world by the death of Judas, making all men to believe that I died upon the cross. And this mocking shall continue until the advent of Muhammad, the messenger of God, who, when he shall come, shall reveal this deception to those who believe in God's law. ... And he reproved many who believed him to have died and risen again, saying: 'Do ye then hold me and God for liars? for God hath granted to me to live almost unto the end of the world, even as I said unto you. Verily I say unto you, I died not, but Judas the traitor. Beware, for Satan will make every effort to deceive you. ... Then before their eyes the four angels carried him up into heaven." (The Crucifixion Of Jesus According To The Gospel of Barnabas)
