CRUCIFIXION OR STONING OF PROPHET JESUS (A.S): A HISTORICAL ANALYSIS IN THE CONTEXT OF JUDAISM AND ISLAM
Keywords:Crucifixion, Prophet Jesus’ (A.S) death, Stoning
There are various conflicts in Talmudic and gospels traditions about Prophet Jesus’ (A.S)’ death. According to Talmudic tradition, he was stoned to death while gospels narrate that he had been crucified. Despite the availability of narrations, this incident is as unauthentic and doubtful as it was two thousand years ago. It is out of the question to clarify these traditions because unreliability has already been established due to fictitious pieces of evidence. In its historical sense, there are a number of unsubstantial sayings in the incident of the crucifixion and these lacunae prevent relying on the authenticity of this event. After six hundred years passed, Quran was revealed with truth & reality about the allegedly event of the crucifixion. According to Quran Prophet Jesus (A.S) neither was crucified nor stoned to death but Allah had taken him up towards Him. Because of restoring the status and dignity of a glorious and majestic prophet, this divine revelation was revealed so that all the aspersions about Prophet Jesus (A.S) may be removed from his personality. In this article, Quranic statements have been analyzed while inspecting the Jewish and Christian traditions regarding this event.
