first let us establish the hypothesis he used to make a conclusion.
1. kaf is an alteration, it should have been Dalet bec of “lying pen of scribes”! bec the word that is with kaf has no meaning.
2. My servant is always used next to a name of a prophet and bec it preceded the Hebrew word in question, it is certainly preceding the name of a prophet, thus “Ahmed” is certainly the correct term.
A conclusion to be factual, it must be empirical, certain, unambiguous, and again, emphatically, “certain” without shadow of a doubt!
The Muslim’s conclusion was based on loose evidence, uncorroborated by facts but with desperation tends to hijack truth by imposing another by applying his own science of presumption, guess and impulsive divination to say, kaf is an alteration bec its meaningless, therefore it should have been dalet!
ITS MERE GUESS!
There was no strong evidence to show it as certain and verified fact, when it is just a theory. No proof of alteration, no tangible documents!
Thus to a critical mind, its not evidence. It only falls to the category “probability” like big bang and evolution, and bible corruption to “lying pen of scribes”.
Lus put it in comparative logic.
E and F are almost identical such as kaf and dalet are. Could we replace E with F in such case, wherein EAT is replaced with FAT bec we feel that its most likely the case?
Its stupid if no factual confirmation!
Was kaf meaningless?
Having that, let’s weigh the opposing statements, the Muslim say, kaf is meaningless, this site say, kaf is an alphabet misused in the word yet still, it don’t affect meaning as this kind of writing practice is common in Hebrew.
One presumed an alteration by hypothetical means, a guess. A site translating the scroll say, spelling differences such as misusing kaf is a common writing practice, thus, in essence, a mispelled hebrew word in like cases still retains its meaning, unaffected, therefore implying an intact contextual as well as understandable manuscript.
Who has a credible, superior notion?
A guess or its opposite?
Though i have no means to research deeply into the sites claim, it is therefore unverified, which between the two claims is true.
BUT WE COULD DISPROVE THE MUSLIMS CLAIM IN OTHER WAYS!
Let us go to the second point.
My servant, he says, always is supplemental with a prophet’s name thus, it should have been, AHMED and not WHOM I UPHOLD!
Debunked! I’ll show one for emphasis.
Behold, my servant (where is the name of a prophet here?) shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.
I am not yet in meticilous and cumulative efforts to immerse in serious research but this i show are dilutory factor to the credibility of the muslim’s claim much so, if i am to contextually show the error of self-interpreting, “LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES”.
JER 8:8 –AN EXPLANATION BY THE QURAN AND THE BIBLE
What does the bible say—
Jer8:8 how do ye say, We [are] wise, and the law of the LORD [is] with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he [it]; the pen of the scribes [is] in vain (falsehood)e say, We [are] wise, and the law of the LORD
Who are the scribes—?
In this particular verse, they are the scribes of the prophets. They write everything as dictated to them by the prophets.
An example of a scribe of a prophet:
Jer 36:32 Then took Jeremiah another roll, and gave it to Baruch the scribe, the son of Neriah; who wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire: and there were added besides unto them many like words.
Baruch is Jeremiah’s scribe same thing with the particular scribes of Jer 8:8. They were scribes to prophets. The only difference is they were scribes to false prophets. During those times wherein Israel is rebellious they heed to false prophets.
It was mainly from prophets that pollution of religion comes out thus the scribes writing falsely and claiming it to be the law of God is directed by the initiatives of the prophets.
Jer 23:15 for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
What the scribes wrote as directed to them by the prophets were from the imagination of their hearts and then claiming it as spoken by God.
Jer 23:31 Behold, I [am] against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
What the prophets say were his own words—fundamental of what the scribes wrote which qualifies it as allegedly new revelations. Clearly they were not altering any existing biblical scriptures.
Jer 23:16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that speak unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, [and] not out of the mouth of the LORD.
What the prophets revealed were from their own words thus they were making new statements apart from the already existing biblical manuscripts—
Thus they were inventing their own revelations which the scribes wrote and were accepted by the people as the law of the Lord but actually were in falsehood. As we can see, they were not altering or corrupting any existing biblical manuscripts but only relating to the people new messages which are fundamentally lies.
Could we find any of such in the realm of Judaism?
THE TALMUD—it probably speaks about it or other lost books, perhaps!
The corruption of the bible is clearly not outlined in Jer 8:8. It was not a reality during Jesus time bec even Jesus himself attested of the preservation of biblical scriptures.
Jn 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
Lk 24:44 And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me.
During the era of early Christianity, Jesus invigorated the searching of the scriptures—and thereby revealed the preservation of biblical scriptures such as the law of Moses, The Psalms of David and the books of the Prophets (Isaiah—Malachi). The corruption of the bible is not reality during these times.
God promised the preservation of his words.
Ps 12:6 The words of the LORD [are] pure words: [as] silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Ps 12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
It even elaborated the cumulative gathering of the preserved books—
Isa 34:16 Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
As promised, that book of the lord was fulfilled with no other than the bible—it can be known through its definitive process the bible said as “gathered”. The bible was gathered thus all books contained in it has been sealed with the promise, it will be called the book of the lord which is a sign of divine approval and preservation.
With this prophecy, the reality of biblical corruption as Muslims misinterpreted Jer 8:8 is not at all insinuated—it was actually debunked!
The bible was meant for generations to come.
Ps 102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
Lastly, let us delve, in the contextual meaning of Isaiah 42:1- if by a slight chance it speaks of AHMED!
Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
A collateral verse:
And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
That servant of god is a light to the gentiles, a covenant for the people, to free prisoners out of prison and darkness, and most emphatically,
TO RAISE UP THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL AND TO RESTORE THE PRESERVED OF ISRAEL!
WHEN IS THAT?
And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.
Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
WHEN WOULD THE SERVANT OF GOD, RESTORE THE PRESERVE OF ISRAEL TO GIVE THEM LIGHT?
The verse above say, after they become one nation, when they returned from exile. From then, they would be gods people forever more. Historically, they were one nation on 1947. Before that they were not, thus it is during our generation that possibly, restoration of Israel as gods people would happen!
Who would restore the preserved of israel, into righteousness?
It could not be muhammad as jesus was the last prophet sent to israel thus rendering muhammad a false prophet to israel!
And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, HE SENT HIM ALSO LAST UNTO THEM, saying, They will reverence my son.
But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.
And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
These sent servants killed and stoned were prophets thus the last sent was the last prophet. It was Jesus Christ, the last prophet of god!
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
By this simple, correlation of context, we could deduce the reality that Islam is false religion as it was by a false prophet, bec jesus is the last prophet, matter of fact is, Islam would war against god.
MUSLIMS SAY: “”ISLAM WILL DOMINATES THE WORLD””
For I will gather all nations (islamic countries) against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
As you can see, biblical pronouncement has logically make Islam anti-god, an enemy of god! And Muhammad a false prophet, thus it could not be the servant spoken of by isaiah!
Muslims might say, these verses I provided are alterations, but then, it goes likewise, with how you assessed Isaiah 42. How certain are you that it is not an alteration?
Bec quran said, Ahmed is spoken in the bible?
If so, where? Where is the certainty, the irrefutable evidence?
None so far, as i proven above!
It puts therefore, your claim, OF AHMED IN ISAIAH 42, as mere hypothesis, it is not fact!
