How I Encountered Jesus Christ in The Koran: Muslim Cleric Converts To Christianity

3 08 2014

Please watch this video, it is worth 35 minutes of your time.


As a Muslim imam, Mario Joseph was well-versed in the Koran and in the teachings of the Islamic religion. In fact, it was precisely the Koran that brought him to  Jesus Christ.

And Elizabeth said how come my lords mother visit me that shows that Mary was indeed the mother and also Jesus was The Lord of Mary

You wouldn’t think I was mistreating you if I said that your mother is a lovely woman would you? Rather the opposite is the case, everyone feels honored when someone praises his mother. Why Christ feels the same way too. Those who honor his mother honor Him. Mary is not the central figure of salvation, Christ is. But we do well when we listen to Mary, as she tells us “Do what ever He tells you. You need to let go of prejudice against Mary, she is your mother too since you are Christ.

Not only does the Catholic Church ask us take lesson by observing her, but we ask her to teach us how to completely surrender to the Lord, as she did….You could not have put it better. Thanks

well Mary didn’t die on the cross nor came to rescue mankind from sin’s damnation. I’m sure Mary must have lived certain years on earth after the death of Christ. On the day of Pentecost, the Bible recorded that the apostles Where in one accord and prayed to the Father just as Christ commanded .They didn’t have to go to a mortal being who was (if I’m right )still alive to receive the Holy Spirit.. The simply went to the Father through the Son – Jesus. And to what you said.I’m not out of way here just simply to clarify. Many are dying and languishing in Sin and all we do is argue, the Devil has come to sow a seed of misconceptions and divisions in the body of Christ and we’re all blinded to see.. well .. I’m not a fundamentalist nor a Protestant or whatever you’ve given to sections form out of divisions …I’m a Christian….

Kavfer, if Christians can boldly say that God the Son died on the cross at Calvary, even though God is surely immortal. Thus, too, Christians have always maintained that God was born in a manager in Bethlehem, even though God is surely eternal.Mary is the “Mother of God” or its equivalent, “Mother of the Lord.” Christians follows Elizabeth’s inspired greeting of Mary, her kinswoman: “And why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?”(Lk 1:43). He imbibed, He sucked up her blood and her substance into His Divine Person. He became man from her, and received her lineaments and her features as the appearance and character under which He should manifest Himself to the world. He was known, doubtless, by His likeness to her, to be her Son. .
She is a creature, but she is His mother, and He has perfectly fulfilled the commandment to honor her. He honored her in a way that is singularly beautiful and sinless, for it would be an insult to Jesus to say that his mother is a sinner. Thus the angel’s greeting to Mary, “Hail, full of grace,” was uttered years before Jesus won grace for mankind. Yet Mary was, even then, “full of grace.”

Kavfer, if we Christians are to know the brotherhood of Jesus Christ, we must come to know the mother whom we share with Jesus. Yes, Mary was standing beside her Son on the Cross with the apostle John. Mary lived with John after Christ death and was the Apostles praying on the day of Pentecost. Kavfer, a person who protests the teachings held by earliest Christians is called a protestant.

I pray God shines His light that we may be able to fully comprehend Him and stop worshipping Him based on our own foolish and vain assumptions .If you guys truly believe in the Bible then this part that says ‘ there is only one mediator between man and God ,Jesus the man ‘ 1 Tim 2:5…,Please take time to read the Bible trusting the Holy Spirit (if you have Him )to give you the correct and exact interpretations. This notions sown by the devil has sunk down the church for ages and has become and heritage… This are all costly assumptions and man’s knowledge of religion.

Kafver, you are shifting focus. The Catholic Church believes in the scriptures, insisting there is “only one mediator between God and man, Jesus Christ”(1 Tim 2:5). Guided by the Holyspirit, The Church draws an proper inference. Christ was at liberty to decide how his mediation would be applied to us. “Christ alone is the perfect mediator of God and men, inasmuch as, by his death, he reconciled the human race to God. However, nothing hinders certain others from being called mediators, in some respect, between God and man, forasmuch as they cooperate in uniting men to God, dispositively or ministerially.” After all, we mediate for others when we pray to God on their behalf, which, of course, is something, you, kavfer and your fellow fundamentalists do. This does not argue against Christ being the sole Mediator, because our modest efforts are entirely dependent on him. In a far more perfect way, Mary shares in his mediation.

How wonderful that we as Catholics believe in the communion of Saints where we on earth , the saints in heaven and the souls in purgatory who are going through the process of purification before going to heaven and coming face to face with God, are all united through the power of God. Mother Mary is always humble and would be the first to inform us that what she has is given to her by God. She helps us to come closer to a God. She prays with us and for us. In praying to Mary we are not moving away from God but towards Him , as Mary only takes us nearer to God . Jesus appointed her as our mother while on the cross just before he died, and she , Mary has faithfully carried out that role of a loving Mother who takes us towards Jesus.

then the work of the Holy spirit is useless then if all we have to do is cry to Mary to plead on our behalf to Christ… can’t we approach Him directly just as mentioned in Hebrews 4;16…was Mary there when Christ in His glory left His heavenly glory and came to die on a cross for us all even for Mary herself.,,.. He didn’t give unto the church Mary but His glory…John 17 vs 22 …you can take time to read the whole chapter..It was Christ’s prayer for the Church. See, Christ is our high priest.., The Word says ‘ we do not have an high priest that cannot be touched by our infirmities ‘.. (Hebrews 4 vs 15-16) Please I would love that those who seek to know more check this scriptural words…

26 10 2014
Emeka

Oh, we definitely can approach Christ directly, just that it is so much more powerful when two people are pleading for something and when the second person is the mother of the benefactor. Again, Mary always diverts all attention to her directly to God. Take time to examine these scriptures 1. “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to His Words”( Lk 1: 38) 2. ” All generation will call me blessed” (Lk 1:48) Mary’s own soul magnifies ( not herself) but the Lord” Lk1:46) To understand Mary, you must relate her to Christ.

26 10 2014

Kafver, Rueben and Emeka are right, for isntance scripture records clearly Mary’s intercession with her Son during the wedding at Cana in John 2; 3-4 ” Mary finds her Son and tells him: “They have now wine.’ And Jesus said to her, O Woman, what concern is that to you and to me: My hour has not yet come.” Mary has complete confidence, knowing that her Son will do anything she asks even thought His answer seemed negative.And She says to the servents, “Do what ever he tells you” John 2:5

Archbishop Fulton Sheen once wrote in an essay about the apparitions at Fatima that Mary was the key to bringing Christ to the Islamic world. Mark Shea told a story of his encounter, a conversation he once had with a man from Turkey who emailed him asking for more information about the Catholic Church. He was raised Muslim but was drawn to Christ.

Looking over the vast menu of Christianities available on the web he was very quick to pare it all down to the Catholic Church. Why? “Because you honor Mary as we are taught to do in Islam.” Jesus knew what he was doing when he gave Mary to the Church as our mother. The human soul needs her and Protestantism has been starved of her for going on four centuries. I don’t understand why protestants are peculiarly fearful of the woman whom Scripture declares all generations shall called blessed

Allah mentioned in Quran that “Allah is sending durood to Muhammad since he exists and all Angels send durood too since they were created and Allah ordered humans to send duroods on Allah’s Rasool-e-pak(s.a.w)”…Allah created whole universe because of his Noor(Light )….do anyone knows who is the Noor(Light ) off Allah…..That Noor is our ‘RASOOL-E-PAK MUHAMMAD (S.A.W)….Knowing the meaning of just Quran is not Islam but Muslims believe in Hadeeth too (the sunnah of Muhammad (s.a.w)….Quran and Hadeeth both makes a true believer of Allah…..

please I need clarity on the Jesus Mary issue., Are you telling me that Mary being human white on earth can in any way rescue a man from sinful acts???

22 10 2014
Sarah

Kafver, Mary is the mother of Jesus, who, Christians,…and Muslims.. believe is the Son Of God Like every good son find it hard to deny his mother something she asks for, Jesus cannot deny anything to the woman from whose breast He suckled the milk of life and nourishment on earth. She is also a spouse of the Holy Spirit because, her pregnancy was a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Moreover, scripture shows us how by the mere asking, Mary got her Son, Jesus to perform the first miracle at the wedding at Cana. This miracle was the first public demonstration of his power. Likewise Mary’s mere asking is enough for Jesus to grant us the grace that will rescue a man from any sinful act, yes. That is why early Christian always ran to Mary’s intercession because they know she is all powerful before God.

guys I won’t want us to continue with these knowledge that has no scriptural basis .The funny thing is that just like religion It has been passed down and believed by many generations.. The truth is who told you? your priests, men in your church, or your own humanly view and explanation of what happened during the wedding at cana..let’s stop all there arguments. For me to be clear I need scriptural backings.Where does Mary comes in.? then what’s the work of the Holy spirit?… please I think you need to read Romans 8 and Hebrews 12…..let’s seek God through His undiluted word and not try to explain Him based on our experiences,,,……..

The story proves which is the most intolerant of all religions which teaches its adherents the extreme form of hatred for others, which teaches them brutality.

This was a great testimony in the goodness & greatness of our LORD & Savior JESUS CHRIST. Being a Christian myself I just don believe in any shape form or fashion that anyone protects us except our LORD & Savior. GOD gives us direct communication with him because he GOD and no one else. Mary or any of the vessels that GOD has used past or present to spread his word can not & should not be use in the same context as the King of Kings. GOD is GOD and man is man. Just my opinion GOD Bless

Moses is mentioned 150 times in the
Quran while Abraham was mentioned
66 times, Jesus 28 times and
Muahmmad (SAW) 12 times – 4 times
as Muhammad, 1 time as Ahmad and
7 times as directly addressed without
the mention of his name.
First of all we all know that
Muhammad was Khataman
Nabiyyeen, the Seal of the Prophets
and the most authentic of all prophets.
Furthermore he is Rehmatullil
aalameen – a Mercy for all mankind
and superior to all prophets, yet his
name was mentioned least amongst the
the other law bearing prophets .
Abraham who was the Father of the
Prophets from whom all the great
prophets owe the lineage was
mentioned less times than Moses. It
just goes to show that belief is not
based on the greatest numbers but
how God Himself asserts and attributes
greatness to his chosen servants.
Hadrat Musa (AS) Moses, had a great
role in the sense that from him spun
the most of monotheistic beliefs and
closest to the religion of Christianity
from where people got misguided in
matters of religion, eventually to be
corrected by the onset of Islam and the
clarifications given by Holy Prophet
(SAW)

1.You say that “First of all we all know that
Muhammad was Khataman
Nabiyyeen, the Seal of the Prophets
and the most authentic of all prophets”? Now how do you know that?
2 You say that “Mohammed is Nabiyyeen, the Seal of the Prophets
and the most authentic of all prophets.
Furthermore he is Rehmatullil
aalameen – a Mercy for all mankind
and superior to all prophets” but JESUS is ” THE WORD OF GOD, THE SPIRIT OF GOD AND STILL Alive 2000 years after. Finally HE is coming back. This is what the KORAN says about JESUS. I believe Mario Joseph’s is right to have accepted Jesus who can Make us CHILDREN OF GOD. .

He was though to be crazy they kicked him out.. he went tot he mountains and came back after he said he saw an angle.. If this were 2014 he would have been in an insane asylum not a prophet.. Not a single miracle not a single righteous word. Marrying a 7 year old is intrinsically evil.

All you mentioned is correct, it is only for people with high wisdom who will understand. the literal meaning of the Holy Quran does not give complete understanding, one needs to research through the traditions of all the Prophets.
Jesus (AS) confirms the coming of prophet Mohammad in the bible and how many Christians understand this.
Lets make good research about Islam. we would finally conclude that Islam is the right Religion for the Last Generation.

We put Our Mother in her rightful place. We respect her and honour her like we were commanded to do. Mary has set an example for every woman. She has cancelled out the disobedience of Eve. She is most blessed amongst women. If you don’t know what it is to be Catholic, then I can’t expect you to understand something as wonderful as intercession. What do you think happens when you die? Does your soul become dust as well? Do you think one forgets who they are when they die? That they won’t remember their family.. That they wouldn’t continue to pray if they had a chance? And since they are already dead, wouldn’t they pray for the souls still alive?

I agree with you Dominic, in fact the bible says that all generation shall call her blessed. That’s why Catholic call Mary “Blessed virgin”

Mother Mary has no power over us but she has power over her son Jesus. Do you remember the 1st miracle of Jesus in Canaa during a wedding? They ran out of wine and Mary said this to Jesus that they ran out of wine, and He replied “Woman my time has not yet come” but Mary said to the servants “Do whatever He tells you” then Jesus turned water into wine. This is an evident that the presence of Mother Mary in catholic faith as interccessor of our prayers is very powerful because on Jesus time, even its not yet His time, he obeyed His mother. We do not worship her but we honour and respect her and for us She is an important part of our faith because without her, Jesus will not come to earth because there is no other woman as pure as her. God bless!

Well said Mina. Mario seems to be a confused person. Although, he knows , The Word helped change his life, he still seems to give importance to things like Pota etc.. Pota is just like any other part of God’s creation. Not any miraculous special place. So is Mother Mary. Of course she is a Blessed chosen woman whom God chose to bring Jesus to us. We don’t worship her but be aware she is a Blessed & revered woman. We are Christians. Not Roman catholics or Anglicans etc. A person like Mario should be proud to be aware that he is a Christian & thank God for that. Not emphasize on whether is a Roman catholic or something else.

If the same spirit of Jesus saved him and drew him to the Catholic Church, then he is not crazy, but perhaps God is telling us something. The great evil of christian disunity is the work of the devil. There are 55,000 distinct christian churches in the world, five new churches are formed every week in the US alone. If every single of these churches claims to teach the word of God right out of the bible, who is to say which is true? How can we reconcile this with Jesus prayer,” MAY they all be one? ” It is worth noting that before the 15th century only one christian church existed: “The Catholic Church” who can trace her root back to the Apostles with Peter as the first POPE. Martin Luther broke off a chip of the Catholic church and since then, that chip has broken itself into 55,000 pieces Yet the Catholic Church remains one,

Just in reply Mina why do you think Jesus told the Blessed Virgin Mary when he was on the cross that John is from now on her son and told John that the Holy Mary is his mother? I will explain it to you if your Protestant teachers didn’t. This means that he put Mary mother to all humans. Think of it. What’s the role of a mother? Isn’t it to protect her children? And what’s the role of a child? Isn’t it to listen and obey his mother because she wants him to be saved? In addition to this explanation the Virgin Mary saves us by her strong intercession to Jesus her son just like she saved the wedding of Cana. This way Mama Mary saves us.
this is a question for you:
What would you do if someday I go to visit you, knocked the door and come in. Than greet you and neglect your mother like you neglected the Virgin mother of God and hurt her. What would be your reaction? You would punish me and won’t invite me to your house once again. This way Jesus won’t invite you to heaven where his father has lots of houses if don’t repent. May the Virgin Mary protects you from this unwanted day. But don’t get it wrong we the catholic don’t omit jesus and put mary his place. We put worship the holy Trinity before everything then Mary.

His problem is not with Islam,,,his problem is with his family who misunderstood Islam,,,Islam believes and soo respect Jesus,,but when converting he disbelieved in another Heavenly Prophet,,,at the end beliefs are just total freedom after studying whatever the human would prefer,,,that us very clear in Islam

What you miss from this is that he had no freedom. Did you actually listen? His father was ready to remove him from this earth because he converted. It5 is what your religion says to do. Kill those that reject your prophet.
