Is power given to Jesus in the Bible?

Is power given to Jesus in the Bible?

Muslims use John 5:19 (Jesus gave them this answer: ‘Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself) to claim that power was given to Jesus, in order to ‘explain’ how Jesus could create life in Sura 5:110. But passage doesn’t say that! The passage actually affirms Jesus is God in the flesh! 18 For this reason they tried all the more to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but HE WAS EVEN CALLING GOD HIS OWN FATHER, MAKING HIMSELF EQUAL WITH GOD. 19 Jesus gave them this answer: ‘Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; HE CAN DO ONLY WHAT HE SEES HIS FATHER DOING, BECAUSE WHATEVER THE FATHER DOES THE SON ALSO DOES. 20 For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed. 21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it. 22 MOREOVER, THE FATHER JUDGES NO ONE, BUT HAS ENTRUSTED ALL JUDGMENT TO THE SON, 23 THAT ALL MAY HONOUR THE SON JUST AS THEY HONOUR THE FATHER. WHOEVER DOES NOT HONOUR THE SON DOES NOT HONOUR THE FATHER, WHO SENT HIM..

  1. Lord Jesus is the Word of God , The Word CAN DO NOTHING WITHOUT God but so as well God WITHOUT The Word .

    The Living Word of God who is also called God The Son is being ‘given’ ALL of the power of Universe by God the Father because the Living Word/The Son is the perfect manifestation and revelation of God without The Father there would be no power to be manifested and revealed hence without the Son there would be also no manifestation & revelation of the power.

    Just put Allah and His Word as comparison :

    -Can Allah’s Power&Wisdom be revealed WITHOUT His Word or Can His Word reveal Power&Wisdom WITHOUT Allah ?

    -Can Allah create WITHOUT His Word or Can His Word create WITHOUT Allah ?
    -Can Allah Be All-Powerful WITHOUT His Word or Can His Word be All-Powerful WITHOUT Allah?

    Recognizing The Eternal Word of God as A PERSON is not some New Testament ‘theology’ as many people often claim, it’s actually grounded in OT and moreover in Ancient Judaism being preserved in writings especially the Targums ( Judaism interpretation of OT) .

    1. “Jesus is Muhammad’s God says: The Living Word of God who is also called God The Son is being ‘given’ ALL of the power of Universe by God the Father because the Living Word/The Son is the perfect manifestation and revelation of God without The Father there would be no power to be manifested and revealed hence without the Son there would be also no manifestation & revelation of the power.”

      That’s a classic stupidity of an amateurish debater.
      Jesus as well as other believers were given *all* power of everything via Faith, but not the permission to exert it:
      Mt 17:20
      And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

  2. “article says: 19 Jesus gave them this answer: ‘Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; HE CAN DO ONLY WHAT HE SEES HIS FATHER DOING, BECAUSE WHATEVER THE FATHER DOES THE SON ALSO DOES.”

    Whatever, eh? If Jesus really had done whatever the Father does, how could his disciples (who don’t see the Father) afford to do more “greater wonders” than that of Jesus?
    Do disciples outsmart Jesus?
    Jn 14:12
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

  3. Jesus needs something to do miracles, such as Faith and other earthy stuffs:
    – Needing the existing loaves of the foods, in order to multiply them.
    – Needing the clay and the water of pool Siloam to heal the blind one.
    Jn 9:11
    He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.

    – Needing the holy name of God to revive Lazarus:
    Jn 11
    41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. 42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

    – Needing to touching the skin of leper.
    Mt 8:3
    And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

  4. Wow i seemingly have irritated some muslims here , Why have you muslims sort of spamming by taking more than one section to reply ? hahahaha….

    @grace ,
    May i quote your own words
    [ Jesus as well as other believers were given *ALL* power of everything via Faith, but not the permission to exert it ]

    Do you really believe and aware what u are talking about ? let me RE-EDUCATE you again to be a nice good muslim , ONLY Allah who has ALL POWER no creation DESERVE to hold ALL POWER , in TRUE ISLAM creations are only given LIMITED amount of power .

    Are you in confusion mate for saying Jesus and all believers were given ALL POWER,? such statement indicates SHIRK ! Are u a self proclaimed MUSHIRK then ? congrats Mr/Ms MUSHIRK ! 🙂

    You also said [ Jesus needs something to do miracles, such as Faith and other earthy stuffs ]
    I think you’re surely a legitimate MUSHRIK because by your own standard then surely Allah is also NOT GOD for you because Allah had to use CLAY (earthly stuff) in order to create Adam..

  5. @anonymous ,

    Believers as a whole will do GREATER THINGS which is evangelizing the whole world the thing which Lord Jesus in His humanity was limited to do. Remember Jesus is 100% God and 100% human just almost as the same with majority of muslims believing Quran is 100% Uncreated and 100% Created.

  6. “Jesus is Muhammad’s God says: Wow i seemingly have irritated some muslims here , Why have you muslims sort of spamming by taking more than one section to reply ?”

    Well, Alright. I just happened to know and come across this informative dcci website from badmanna.blog, where some evangelization articles from this website also appeared over there.

    “Do you really believe and aware what u are talking about ? let me RE-EDUCATE you again to be a nice good muslim , ONLY Allah who has ALL POWER no creation DESERVE to hold ALL POWER , in TRUE ISLAM creations are only given LIMITED amount of power. Are you in confusion mate for saying Jesus and all believers were given ALL POWER,?”

    Can’t disagree with that.

    “I think you’re surely a legitimate MUSHRIK because by your own standard then surely Allah is also NOT GOD for you because Allah had to use CLAY (earthly stuff) in order to create Adam..”

    You read it in a retrograde. In Islam, Allah created the souls first.
    Allah created the “person” or soul of Adam first, and then his earthy body. That’s why in Hadith it is illustrated how Prophet Muhammad in the soul already exists when Adam is being between soul and body.
    The use of dust or clay for Adam for his body later is meant to be a Heavenly test for a haughty pride of the demons whose origin is the fire.
    Jami` at-Tirmidhi Vol. 1, Book 46, Hadith 3609.
    Narrated Abu Hurairah: They said: O Messenger of Allah, When was the Prophethood established for you? He said: While Adam was between (being) soul and body.

  7. @grace [ You read it in a retrograde. In Islam, Allah created the souls FIRST ]

    First ? so Allah depends on an entity called TIME in order to create ? is TIME bigger or equal with Allah?

    @grace [ The use of dust or clay for Adam for his body later is meant to be a Heavenly test for a haughty pride of the demons whose origin is the fire. ]

    Your lame excuse still doesn’t answer my question,

    So are you saying not only Allah was dependable on MUD to create Adam but Allah also needed MUD to reveal His Wisdom to Adam for teaching Adam how to be humble ? so MUD- hu Akbar !

    So in order to create jinn Allah needs fire ? iwhat on hell Allah needs fire to create then ? i guess the word Koon-Fa-Ye-Koon is just Allah talking gibberish right ?

    I’m just using your own MUSHRIK mindset back at you mate !

  8. “Jesus is Muhammad’s God says: First ? so Allah depends on an entity called TIME in order to create ? is TIME bigger or equal with Allah?”

    Time is not other entity in Islam but one “attribute” of Allah the First One (Al-Awwal).

    “So are you saying not only Allah was dependable on MUD to create Adam but Allah also needed MUD to reveal His Wisdom to Adam for teaching Adam how to be humble ?”

    At least, Adam was created by Allah already in the form of soul without needing any mud or other medium whatsoever. Thus, Allah is far superior above Jesus.

    “So in order to create jinn Allah needs fire ? iwhat on hell Allah needs fire to create then ? i guess the word Koon-Fa-Ye-Koon is just Allah talking gibberish right ?”

    Kun Fayakun was applied by Allah immediately when creating the soul of Adam without needing the mud.

  9. @grace [ Time is not other entity in Islam but one “attribute” of Allah the First One (Al-Awwal).]

    Doesn’t answer my question , by saying First he created Adam it means Allah needs time, he even needs TIME t create you , right ?

    [ At least,Adam was created by Allah already in the form of soul without needing any mud or other medium whatsoever ] AT LEAST ? hahahaha but whatever lame excuses you try to throw at THE END OF THE DAY you admit it’s undeniable that eventually Allah DEPENDED ON MUD to create Adam , right ? so MUD hu Akbar !

    [ Kun Fayakun was applied by Allah immediately when creating the soul of Adam without needing the mud.] hahaha this is funny you repeat the same foolish lame excuse whatever lame excuses you try to throw at THE END OF THE DAY you admit it’s undeniable that eventually Allah DEPENDED ON MUD to create Adam , right ? so MUD hu Akbar !

  10. “Jesus is Muhammad’s God says: Doesn’t answer my question , by saying First he created Adam it means Allah needs time, he even needs TIME t create you , right ?”

    God doesn’t need whatever to create. After all, time is already inherent of Him.

    “at THE END OF THE DAY you admit it’s undeniable that eventually Allah DEPENDED ON MUD to create Adam , right ?”

    Body made of clay is not Adam himself.
    The clay is a later addition for “shaping” the body and functions as a vessel of “an already-created Adam”.

  11. [ God doesn’t need whatever to create. After all, time is already inherent of Him.]
    But still at THE END OF THE DAY Allah still needs time right ? what a lame excuse

    [ Body made of clay is not Adam himself.The clay is a later addition for “shaping” the body and functions as a vessel of “an already-created Adam”] hahahahaha..please just ponder your own staement i believe now you are intentionally just clowning around.

    Remember IN THE END OF THE DAY Allah eventually still needed MUD , without MUD we would all be flying spirits without bodies hahahaha… MUD’ HU AKBAR !

    Just using your Murshirk mindset back at you mate

  12. “Jesus is Muhammad’s God says: But still at THE END OF THE DAY Allah still needs time right ? what a lame excuse”

    God doesn’t need the time to create Adam. God can create and re-create Adam anytime, any place.
    That is Adam who needs time and place to keep existing.

    “Remember IN THE END OF THE DAY Allah eventually still needed MUD , without MUD we would all be flying spirits without bodies”

    Being able of creating a living Spirit without body is proof that Allah is far superior above Jesus.

  13. [ God doesn’t need the time to create Adam. God can create and re-create Adam anytime, any place] hahahahaha…just see your pathetic self it’s so funny . EVENTUALLY AT THE TIME OF THE DAY whatever lame excuse you try to throw , the fact is Allah is DEPENDABLE on TIME in order to create.

    Remember IN THE END OF THE DAY Allah eventually still needed MUD , without MUD we would all be flying spirits without bodies

    [ Being able of creating a living Spirit without body is proof that Allah is far superior above Jesus.] hahahaha… IN THE END OF THE DAY Allah eventually still needed MUD to create HUMAN , and according to your own heretical standard any need of earthly stuff in order to create would disqualify the divinity of God. So Allah is NOT God according to you , thank you very much !

    i feel extremely sorry for you little girl !

  14. “Jesus is Muhammad’s God says: IN THE END OF THE DAY Allah eventually still needed MUD to create HUMAN”

    But God doesn’t need any mud whatsoever to create a “creation” named Adam, regardless whether he will be a human or angel or else. Jesus is too far below Allah.

  15. [ But God doesn’t need any mud whatsoever to create a “creation” named Adam ] IN THE END OF THE DAY Allah eventually still needed MUD to create HUMAN” because WITHOUT MUD there wouldn’t exist Muhammad The Pervert with all of his concubines.

    Whatever you lame excuse you try throw at, according to your own heretical standard any need of earthly stuff in order to create would disqualify the divinity of God. So Allah is NOT God according to you , thank you very much !

    i feel extremely sorry for you little girl !
